Heroes 7: Unoffical Community Patch v1.3 update + full changelog

Unoffical Community Patch (UCP) is a community modification for Might & Magic: Heroes VII and its expansion Trial by Fire. Since the game development ended in 2016, no more official updates can be expected and it’s just up to this game’s loyal fans to fix the remaining bugs and make Heroes VII great again. And so the largest bugfixing patch for this game was born…

Unofficial Community Patch

Update Readme 1.3

This is the list of all changes in comparison to the previous version 1.2 (2019).

If you encounter any other bugs, please, use the Trello board (where you can download newer versions sooner) or the dedicated Discord channel (where you can discuss anything and help with development). The comment section here can be used as well but the comments can be addressed with significant delay.

We will be glad if you help with updating any existing translation to the 1.3 version or creating a new translation!

150. Frenzy causes units to get stuck
151. Dragon Breathes effects sometimes display and deal 0 damage
152. Hero specializations providing additional skills do the same on every reload, so the whole skill can be levelled-up this way
153. Bonuses granted by weeks of: idleness, trade, training, raids are lost on reload
154. Week of magic effect seems to persist
155. Tower of necromancy keeps stacking and not applying to new heroes after town c changed completely to require hero visit

    I don’t understand #141. What are the neutral buildings you have? How can you “have” a neutral building if it’s neutral?

      Unfortunately I also don’t know, I haven’t played H7 very much, but it will have something to do with Caravan.
