This zip file contains the 1.09 .wog file, instructions and the WoG Map Editor, which is in .rar format. Just put the .wog file in the WoG Update folder and then select the Update button.

WoG Map Editor (Ver. 3.3)
This is a more advanced Map Editor for WoG than the one that comes with the original download. Created by GrayFace, this tool combines the use of an object editor with the usual Map Editor. The object editor allows you to turn anything into anything you want. Don't like the look of the Inferno? Then pick a tree and convert it. Don't like where an entrance is located? Change it! This editor has many other useful functions, and you could spend many hours creating the most unique maps possible!
Download: Map Editor (Ver. 3.3)
This tool is great for uploading or extracting any of the documents or graphics in either the H3sprite.lod or the bitmap.lod. It's simple and easy to use. Always remember that if you want to add or subtract creatures, buildings or texts, it's a good thing to make yourself a backup in case you don't like something you put in the game. This not only can be used for WoG, but RoE, AB and SoD as well. Another great program created by GrayFace.

The program was designed in order to simplify the life of an ordinary gamer who doesn't want to know anything about the game resources and about a difficult way of changing them. He (she) downloaded a pack with 1-2 creature defs and wants them to replace, say, Angel. Anything the player needs is to choose those defs (or only battle def) and select monster name from the list. The program will take care of backup and importing. The idea and first description belong to Valery (Salamandre). Beta testing and the most routine work (the creation of def list) was also done by him. Credits also go to GrayFace for "Lod" Pascal unit and to unknown author of lodedit.exe.
Some WoG fans led by FCst1, have created a new Interface for both HoMM 3 an WoG. There are so many changes here, and they are too numerous to include here. But once you download this package and put it in the game, you won't be sorry you did. The graphics are simply brilliant and there are no problems like crashes or missing files. This is an absolute first class must have! Team members include. Astaroth, T2_2112, dmad, DANZA, Kreegan, gnollking, Trith, sheldenzaire, Iv, ww13, BigJocker (Some resource from him were used.), Morn (Some resources were used by him too.)

Here is a beautiful town that should introduce the kiddies to play HoMM3/WoG. And the town works as good as it looks. To get this town to come to life, you'll have to install all the files manually by using either MM Archive or DEFka. But once you do, I think you'll be very pleased with the results.
