Most important bugfixes

Establish release process

In January 2021 there was a proposition on Slack to make 3 branches: develop, beta and stable. develop is where people make their changes when they are ready, people can test it but its not for normal players beta could be for players who agree to be testers. stable could be for players who want stable version. Hovewer there were no decision made

HD mod/quality of life

contact MikeLodz if you have questions about this section

These are necessary, as although they werent present back in 1999, they are standard today.

  • quick transfer of artifacts and armies between heroes, started here
  • adventure map: movements points preview and cost
  • move artifacts between visiting town and garrison heroes
  • hero list preview on the "start map" screen.

etc see here for full list of enhancements:

  • some walking creatures need to move faster during battles, as its a complete waste of time (we need a so called "turbo" mode)
  • this one not sure if its a bug or missing hd mod feature: it should be possible to preview hero screen when choosing a skill on levelup.

Hota rebalances?

contact MikeLodz about this section

  • what is our stance on Hota rebalances ? we should discuss them at least and decide which to adopt, and which to ignore *

finish (random map generator template pick,
