HOMM V Developer Diary
8:20 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

As the PC version of Heroes of Might and Magic V grows closer to release more details about the game have begun to emerge. Some of the latest information comes in the form of a new developer diary on the official website. The diary reveals the continuing process of building a user friendly interface for town construction in HoMM V. Descriptions and screenshots reveal the struggle to balance usability and visual quality.

The very first interface test we made was actually quite close to the final solution being implemented now. It was half a screen used to display all available buildings (quite similar to previous Heroes games), with the whole town itself shown on the other half.

Another test was made later last year, showing only the town itself, with a camera centered on the building to be done. You would cycle through all of the buildings one by one, getting the view centered on them, switching from one position to the next. With this solution you could see the town details up close and the graphical quality was used to its full extent.

Freeverse Software is currently working to bring HoMM V to the Mac. To check out the diary entry follow the link below.
