When I was hashing out the campaigns for HoMM3, my objectives were simple. Keep it short, simple, and to the point. Limiting campaigns to 3 or 4 maps accomplished a couple goals. First, more players were more likely to finish a campaign if it was short. Second, a collection of short campaigns created the opportunity to showcase individual factions, which gave a player the opportunity to experience HoMM3 in full.

Incorrect Victory Conditions[edit]

I found that most campaign victory conditions are not able to set in the map editor. For example, only Acquire Artifact/Transport Artifact, no or Defeat All Enemies. The templates are missing these content (e.g. Template:ScenarioVars table, Template:Scenario). After editing them, we also need to edit victory conditions in every campaign and its scenarios. That would spend lots of time. --Sanust (talk) 15:32, 30 January 2024 (UTC)

  • Let's wait until we can confirm this. I went through the victory/loss conditions of all the scenarios about a month ago and they seemed all correct to me then. How are you checking these? I broke them down into the h3m files, then moved them into my Maps folder and looked at them via the in-game Single Scenarios setup screen. --Legate (talk) 15:50, 30 January 2024 (UTC)
    • NOTE: I usually use the HotA install/tools for my work...maybe there is a discrepancy between that and SoD? --Legate (talk) 15:50, 30 January 2024 (UTC)
  • If you are just commenting on the options available in Template:ScenarioVars table, then I agree. I only added the things to that template that I actually found in-game --Legate (talk) 15:53, 30 January 2024 (UTC)
  • From Victory / Loss conditions the only ones not available in the game are:
    • Having a special victory condition AND 2 Special loss conditions or
      • 3 special victory conditions, out of which one is the standard one, or
      • 2 special victory conditions, out of which none of them is the standard one.
    • Everything else can be done in the new HotA Map Editor. Of course, a lot of it is not accessible in the old Maped - Csaros (talk)
