is it the true that the Heroes VI will not have Town Screens ? Because if not, is not Heroes.

Unfortunately that seems to be the case http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

But, honestly, did anybody use the town screens in H5 for functionality, or after looking at it once you just used the build and recruit menu buttons? In H3 did you click on each dwelling? Of course not. While the town screen is aesthetically pleasing, it's not really that functional. The huge on-map cities look great to me - I'll be most curious to see how the city development looks in the siege battles.

Thats absurdity, I like heroes because he have nice Castle scenery since H1 until H5 it is one of basic this game build your town. Now we have only monster den and no Town scenery this is big fail.
i use fast possibility of recruit too, but always admiration my town. When i can play fast strategy with huge base on my map i can play warcraft or similarly things.

IMHO cutting development time that would be invested in cute 3D town screens that are admired only a few times is a wise choice.

Maybe they invested the saved time for other much more important aspects of the game.

Just saw the town screenshots, They look disgusting. And about the functionality, you actualy need verry few of the things in the game but whithout them the game will feel awkward. If they are going in that direction why don't they make it just a browser game with text. Towns in hmm 5 were beautiful and i want them back. Also why the change in name?

Brilliant news. I must admit that at the moment I am struggling when trying to find something I clearly dislike of the current info http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Nice nice nice news, a 2D town view with music for me it's actually a perfect screen http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Let's see if we get more info in the coming days http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Very good news indeed, the town view is one of the most iconic things in Heroes...

It is very good news!!!

While i would not have been greatly saddened by the loss of the town screen, i can't help but feel happy that it and the town music is still in the game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

A 2D town screen is exactly what I would welcome back in the game. The 3D thing from HoMM V was a waste of resources - both impractical and not exactly impressive. On the other hand, a well drawn 2D picture with a few animations here and there will be both nice and HoMM-like.

It's sad to hear the town screens will be gone. Honestly i do prefer the 2D town screen. It's so much beautiful compared to the rotating 3D ones.

08-23-2010, 12:54 PM
I think, the Heroes IS Heroes, if the town screen is not be in the game... There are many other speciality of the game, which is not be in other games...

And if won't town-view, will other possibility... At least I hope it... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Wow, if that's true, then it's BRILLIANT news. I had been complaining about the lack of town screens in the stickied thread and suggested that Black Hole/Ubisoft implement animated 2D pictures of towns... Did they read my mind or what? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I'm looking forward to seeing some screenshots depicting said town screens.

Images of town screen windows have been popping up online - the Necropolis, at least - they are still in there to an extent.

08-24-2010, 02:28 PM
Those images are far from being the final ones though, according to the info we have gotten so far http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
