When it comes to judging graphics, you, ragoon and a few others are as good as profesionals. Reading your imput was really interesting and thought provoking. I agree with a lot you posted.

What I would advise is putting discarded concepts, no matter how rough or unfinished in a mod file so people can test them out for themselves.

This and the creation of a "discarded concepts" thread with the things you wrote might serve great benefit.
1)first it will give people inspiration of what is possible ih H3sw
2)more importantly, with your (and others) input it will give pixel artists some very good advice.

This will lead to more and better pixel art in the future. The best part of this is that it requieres minimum work from you guys. Just create the mod file, and dump everything there.

First of all, I really dislike all the H1 objects, they're looking like crap imo. I'm talking about common 10, 14, 18, 19 and possibly every other one that isn't on the screens you posted.

My comments on interesting objects:
Wasteland 4,5: After some minor fixes could be used as a wasteland version of the ghost town (like the one half burried on the desert?)
Wasteland 6: Could be taller, but it's a good design, should be adjusted and kept.
Grass 3: Roof should have the same shape as the platform below it. Should have more ornaments too, I could work on it.
Grass 6: Could do that ones too.
Common 2: Please dont ruin it, it's looking good on dirt, but I agree that some fixes for other terrains might be needed.
Common 3: It's looking very good and should stay as alternate dwelling or a bank.
Common 12: It's okay, though I'm not a fan of the design. Should be much darker. Also yellow or green bricks could work better, just a thought.
Common 16: I can fit it into the grid pretty quickly, will try it probably.
Common 17: I agree that it doesn't fit, but the other one is that red strone I'm thinking about then we could use a new design, I very much dislike both of them (the version with the yellow star too).
Common 19: Like I said. KILLLL dat thing
Common 20: Trash
Common 22: Tent barely fits, could use the new design.

Very nice idea for the Ghost Town. We will fix it and implement it later (I suppose that it will be a bank in our case). For now, we simply don't have such object because classic H2 banks need scripting.
Using something with trees as a bank is a dangerous story because it's not flexible terrain-wise. But surely we can do something with that.
The Altar of Sacrifice could really use new design, yes. Preferably 2-squared like in the H3 original.

Concerning everything that comes from Heroes 1: these objects are really adjustable and I can do them, like Common 19.

I mostly agree with these changes. Personally I would like all Palm Heroes objects to be removed as we certainly don't need them and have much better and more fitting graphics ourselves. I believe some H1 objects can be changed to fit very well as H2 objects. I would be sad to see some H1 objects removed as they are used in our H1 maps. I use the stumps and apple trees along with lava and swamp objects from H1. The stumps could be changed in their style to fit the H2 more, but please keep them in the same shape Smile

The H1 objects can sometimes be upgraded so that they look like H2 objects (and this should be done in cases like with the Sawmill). This object can be given a flag and packed as an alternative Sawmill somewhere in Succession Wars.pac, but (maybe) not available for common use.

P.S. We should do something with the towns: see your screenshot. There should be ground under a town, no matter if it was in the original or not. Moving the town for 1 square higher should be enough in this case.
