Another Heroes 3 Mod, named in loving tribute to AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake), is my personal take on one of the greatest strategy games of all time. When I first started working on this little project several years ago, I couldn't have possibly dreamed how far it would eventually come. Released as version 0.1 at the beginning of this year simply to get what I had out there, I've since managed to accomplish every goal that I set forth on a core design level. Future development will focus exclusively on the addition of more content (i.e. maps)... or at least that's the plan. We've all seen how well that assumption ends up in practice, so please feel free to let me know how it can be improved!
Another Heroes 3 Mod features...
Completely re-balanced heroes, skills, units, spells, artifacts, buildings, and map locations New mechanics and abilities which expand directly on existing ones Custom-built maps made with these new design concepts in mind Improved user interface and several quality of life features ...much more! Many of you have never heard of or played Heroes of Might & Magic 3, but have played Brave New World and are taking me at my word that it's a game worth playing. Others are familiar with H3's pedigree and are interested in seeing what I have done to improve it. The very short answer for anyone familiar with my previous work is that I gave it the "Brave New World" treatment in that I aimed simply to make the game a better version of what it already was by accentuating what worked best and tweaking what didn't. If you want to know more, consult the documentation included with the download or just dive right in.
By far my most ambitious project to date, Brave New World began as a joint effort between myself and a coder by the name of Synchysi to completely overhaul perhaps one of the most beloved entries in the long-running Final Fantasy series. It's since grown into a massive community project that's exceeded every expectation I could have possibly dreamed of. The end result is the product of hundreds upon thousands of man-hours from dedicated fans and something I am extremely proud to have been a part of.
Brave New World features...
Individualized spell lists and multiple stat growth options for each character Re-coded formulas that promote diversity and allow stats to function as they should Completely re-balanced equipment, items, spells, and skills - and brand-new enemies to use them on Fixes for all major (and most minor) bugs along with a vast multitude of quality-of-life enhancements ...much more! But even though much has changed, I think one player put it best when he wrote, "...the goal seems to be to celebrate what makes FFVI the game it is, rather than undoing it and making an entirely new game out of it." Beyond all else, Brave New World is everything I feel that Final Fantasy VI could have been had Squaresoft had all of the time and resources available to them that we have today. And now, thanks to the efforts of the amazing community that has grown around this mod, it finally has the chance to be exactly that.
Sid Meier's Civilization is a series that requires no introduction, and its third offering is, in my humble opinion, the greatest of them all. One of my first major modding projects and arguably what set my modding career into motion was fine-tuning the rules of the base game in an attempt to forget that the expansions ever happened. There's not much to say about this one except that it's as balanced as I feel it's ever going to get; have a glance at the readme or the quick reference sheet if you want to know more, or just dive right in and let the Civilopedia be your guide.
