Ubi-Nox, are you planning to add some section on the SC site where users can upload their creations and make it downloadable for other people? Would be nice to have some categories there (creatures, maps, heroes, retextures, spells etc). This will be so much fun! We will be able to share our mods and maps with entire Shadow Council! You will never regret it ;)

Guys! Download my future mod which will be called "ShouldHaveBeenMaleDruids". It will include male druids, male centaurs, male djinns. And probably enhance every faction if that's possible (and if I have time!).

Now question. Are we able to easily make a Customized Campaign?

JeremiahEmo:

Druidic culture was one of those less common societies in which men and women were of equal stature. You were just as likely to see a woman in charge as a man in their culture.
Boudicca was among the really kicka$$ druid woman. She took on the Romans and for a time, was quite successful. The Romans did defeat her but with numbers, not tactics or strategy or any skill.
Please take your misogynistic spam elsewhere.

Lol come on broui that has nothing to do with what this is about. And it is not about gender (how many times does this have to be said), it is about that a unit a lot of ppl liked has to be "genderbend" (yes that is what it looks like to me). Maybe the sorcerers faction had female druids, but this faction is different (as so many ppl have already pointed out).
And also the fact that in H5, that is 100 years later, the druids are male. Wich makes all this not logical in my eyes.

"And also the fact that in H5, that is 100 years later, the druids are male. Wich makes all this not logical in my eyes."

*sigh*

There are male druids, there are female druids in Elven society (as heroes, as units). In H5 we see the men, in H7 we get the women. If it is not represented in a game, it doesn't mean that it does not exist. Now they choose to represent one over the other, why does everybody bitch about that so much? Pretty elven druids kicking ass, I see no problem with that :3.

Oh? What did these 'ppl' say, exactly? And what is YOUR opinion on the matter? I suppose you're not only hiding behind 'what others say'. I wonder what your view on that is. Even if Sylvan is different from Sorceress, why can't there be a little variety in creatures, or their genders for that matter? People worry about the little things...while there is much more to pay attention to.

28
Marblethrone The Chivalrous
August 02, 2015 15:35:16

I really never understood (and will never understand) the whole gender issue. I mean, what the hell is the problem? You get the same unit, same abilities or attack (ranged, melee etc), with only a different appearance. Besides, more female creatures in-game means you can kill more female creatures. I wonder why JEmo/ProudM is so upset...he should be welcoming this game like no other: he can kill female creatures by the dozen, lol.

I wouldn't want to see the same all over again. Variety +1 imo.

@Marble it should already be clear as what i think and what my opinions are. I just think certain things should have been left alone, and i am not only talking about druids.
If you wanted variaty we could have gotten new (female) units (and not genderbend units. And altho the deer is a new unit i prefer the unicorn). I just don't want them to change things when not necessary and just build upon them. Or when change is needed to come with some thing new and good.

RobvD84: Honestly, if you or anyone else is getting bent out of shape over the sex of a unit, you need help. Assuming the intentions of the developers regarding their choices on this issue are fruitless and likely wrong.
Finally, Priests (Haven) were women in Clash of Heroes and if the druids weren't women, they sure looked it.

" Although she had the great advantage of numbers, her army was no match for the disciplined and highly trained Roman troops, who blunted the initial Celtic rush with a wave of thrown javelins and then proceeded to kill every Celtic warrior they could catch.

@RobvD84
Absolutely agree with you man! Why can't they just create new units instead of gender-bending one that already exists? It's like Thor comics, I hate that they change the famous manly Norse god to female just to please feminists. I'm pretty sure, same people here who oppose me despise Valkyries and Amazons to be gender-bended unless you knowingly are a hypocrite like MedicZero.

@Marble
H7 has variety? You kidding? Almost all factions has uniform/forced 2-3 female units. Far from variety

25
RobvD84 The Mad
August 02, 2015 21:59:51

Haha wow. How many times do we have to repeat ourselves. It's not about the gender, it's about that they thought it needed to change. I don't want it to change when it was good as it was. Also the only unit that is "new" is the deer in Sylvan. Just to be clear on that. So there is not really any innovation in that (in my eyes). Otherwise they could have made the mages female too, because there are enough female mages. Actually i was surprised they didn't do it yet.

25
RobvD84 The Mad
August 02, 2015 22:03:18

I will resign from this topic, because this seems to be an endless cicle. Also i think the "gender" topic seems to be useless now since we can change the appearances of units to the ones we like. Everybody can do whatever they like (as much as the tools will let you).

ProudMisogynist: So your source on Boudicca was a game? Who made themselves look stupid?

Per Wiki: Roughly 10,000 Romans surrounded her army at the end. Few agree on how many "soldiers: she had (more akin to peasants)

U of NC: Few agree on how many she and her "army" killed some say 400, UNC says 70,000.
In the end, the numbers don't matter. No one disputes her badassery.

It's not about freaking gender. It's about the love we have for certain units that we don't want to change. It's you freaking ppl who make it a problem about gender and who can only see it that way. I just don't want it to change. Making them better? Ofcourse i want that. But if they want change or something they could have created something new. For example they could have used a "elven faction" that lives somewhere else and are different then the Sylvan. Or a completely new faction.

25

You really shouldn't take feminists seriously Rob. I for one expressed my agreement on an all-female Amazonian faction (much better than destroying my Sylvan) and these feminists still thinks I want to eliminate every female units simply because my opinion opposes their's.

You do know your sources, compared to PM doesn't say how many soldiers Boudica had right? Moreso, it doesn't give an exact number to how many Romans her army killed. Just an estimation. Do know how to read next time.

Frankly, this article gets me quite woried. So we will be able to change how things *look*, but will we be able to make actual mods that change things like creature or hero stats, building cost, dependancies, and (most importantly) the skill system? Or will modding only be a cosmetic thing? If we can't improve the actual game through modding, this game is certainly doomed for me.

This sentence "Modding is “map-based” meaning that if you create a map using a specific package or modifying specific files, those modifications will be directly available in the map itself so people won’t have to download additional elements" is very worrying :(( It will be very frustrating to put some new, crazy things only in new, specific maps ://// It should be avaliable to make new files packages and share with everyone and influence whole game (except campain).

I'm worried about that too, sounds like we have to repeat the same process for every single map =/

As I understand, you will have a file like "AcademyV2", so you can put it in any map you create. You just can't put it in other map, like game basic maps.

As explained in the article, you can also save your packages and share them directly so they can be used by others too in their maps :)

Ok, thanks Ubi-Nox for the clarifications :)
Can you answer the questions I posted below?

And what about basic scenario maps in H7 - not original campain maps but original scenario maps in H7, can we modify them too? Probably some clever coder will create some tool to implement modifications to all existing maps in game folder :)

I am worrying about exactly the same thing too. I want to create a mod that could be applied to a whole game not only a single map.
