    Alright, Yohobofire has thought of a new feature. It's called "mounts".
    So basically, this allows the heroes to ride horses and maybe other animals. When the hero mounts a horse, the hero will appear on top of the horse. Then the hero will hide, and the player will get control over the horse. The horse will have a higher movement speed than the hero but it won't be able to attack.
    Currently we only have 2 different mounts in mind. Horse and Armored horse. The horse will use the normal wc3 horse model and the armored one will be a modified Knight.
    I will soon post some screenies of the heroes mounting a horse.

    Also, Yohobofire has almost finished the arena. He'll soon post screenies.

    Awesome,
    Sounding really Good. =]
    The mount idea will defiantly make traveling the world a lot easier.
    I wonder what we will have to do to get a mount, and maybe!
    You should include a special rare mount thats really hard to get. =P
    Anyways, Great Job Man!

    I hate when people say that. Why does so many people think everything is a copy from WoW? WoW has no originality. It's just a lot of things from other games clashed together into one big game. Why is WoW not a copy? I have seen mounts 100 times in games before WoW. So in the future when games have mounts, they are also a copy of WoW? WoW has no originality. <-- My opinion

    I agree 100%, I'm just saying that the mounts thing isn't new to my ears. Eyes, rather.

    I have no idea of when we will release the first beta. I'll soon post a more detailed progress. The one in my signature is outdated. =/

    And these days it's very hard to have new and unique features. Everything is already taken =/

    That's why you do what the big guys do. Take already used ideas, refine it, and make it uberly awesome. Perhaps some inspiration from Sandbox-styled games like Fable or The Elder Scrolls: III or IV?

    I have a name for the Shaman spell on the last page.

    Rage of The Storm

    I believe I found a name for the warriors chain spell.

    Truss of Might (Truss is a synonym for Bind, Tie, and Lash.)


    I've been secretly watching this project for some time >_> <_< >_>
    And, I can't wait till its finished, or even Beta for that matter.

    Eh,
    Oziris, 256x256, x 2 is bigger than 446x446, So its not even twice as big as 256, But its close.
    But thats a big map, I Prefer 256x256, because if everything is too detailed, than it gets way to laggy.
    Anyways, Keep working on your projects, Both of you guys. [I've looked at yours Oziris, Nice Work].

    256*256=65536
    446*446 =198916
    198916/65536~3
    But people think because 446 is close to 512 it is almost the same thing.
    To say something connected with the thread:
    I think mounts should not be limited only to traveling( now that is wow-like), but that is just my opinion.

    Make it so you can attack on your mount. That would be cool.

    No, travel mounts should be for traveling.
    I suggested making mounts for certain heroes(this depends whether there are heroes who cannot ride mounts(centaurs and etc)). These mounts should give some bonuses(this is the basic Idea, and I am not talking about attack speed, really what kind of mount would give that; for instance a knight - a normal sword fighting hero; a knight on a battle mount - he gets jausting).
