A top quality artist called Ashirox has allowed us to use his magnificent Heroes 2 fan art in the mod as backgrounds. We are really excited to see it in the game.

Go check Ashirox's links immediately!


Animated Oceans

Finally, we have achieved a goal previously seemed impossible.

It is the animated oceans (and also rivers, lava streams and the entire lava terrain).

Using the new exclusive DefTool from GrayFace and the cycling color plugin from OxFEA we are able now to implement all this kind of stuff.

Well, what can I say? Hooray!

New Creatures!

Finally, one more thing which allows us to state that we don't simply tranfer Heroes 2 to Heroes 3 engine. Enjoy the new creatures you'll likely see in the next mod version. They can be further updated in future, but these versions already deserve a look.

A new Witch hero look

The next mod release (presumably called v0.8 beta) will finally contain the authentic look of the Witch hero, based on one of the characters, Charon the Witch (Just like Thundax the Barbarian and Carlawn the Sorceress in original Heroes 2)

The assets are already fully animated and ready to roll!

What do you think about this concept?

A programming breakthrough!

A programming breakthrough!


The next version of The Succession Wars Mod will properly display the different castle looks on different terrains. This feature, native to HoMM2, was not present in HoMM3, but now we will be able to make maps look much more neat and consistent.

No, the Forge is just a prank ;)

We have been working on some new designs for Garrisons lately.

Check these puppies out! Don't you see anything familiar? :)


New Portraits for the Next Mod Version!

As a result of our hard work, we can present a big pack of portraits which will be featured in the next version of The Succession Wars Mod. The creation of our Russian forum branch was very fruitful in various aspects, and the graphics is one of the primary things that have and must have been upgraded.

So, we want to say great thanks to the members of Russian DF2 community for their awesome contribution to the project:

- Agar, dr0n, nosferatu, Arys-Pole, DrSlash, Docent Picolan, Hobbit;
- and the whole DF2 community for their attention and support.

Now, on to the portraits!

Many of these still need cosmetic treatment, but all we can say is that the party has just started! Keep tracking our news!
