More mods?
Im having trouble trying them all now and keeping track of which ones I like.

More maps maybe. I think we could use more maps. But there is YAMG (yet another MapGen) in the works which might help

One of the Outcasts wanted me to mention that Kohan is available on steam now.

Personally I don't care at all for this argument though and I'm not sure why we're going on about steam/digital download/marketing in this thread

I much prefer the indie model. I'm in the amusingly-named "Closed Public Beta" for Heroes VI, and I'm afraid they're going to push the game out before it's ready, which is a shame because I've been a fan of the series since Kings Bounty back in the day, and the fundamentals for Heroes VI are actually quite solid.

Speaking of which... there will be a Beta for CoE3, no?

Mods would be fantastic, especially as it appears (just by glancing at the screenshots) the art can be recycled from Dom3 mods? Amos generated enough zany skull monsters and cultists to add a dozen more nations.

Beta is in progress now.
But it might depend on your definition. It's playable but doesnt have some parts incorporated fully yet

I only found out about Dom3 last year. But - at least in my case - availability on steam would'nt have changed that.
So if I am able to download it, its good enough for me (or if I'm able to Transfer the Game - like Dom3 - with an stick. Kapput DVD drive...).

I'm really thrilled to hear about this. I've been playing a lot of Dom3 until about a year ago. Best game I ever layed my hands on. Now I just dropped by to check if anything new and exiting was coming up from the IW team. And behold... CoE III!

I'd love to pre-order, pre-purchase, download a beta version or whatever - anything really. So - when can we pursuade you guys to accept our money?

Glad to see you're enthusiastic about it.

The game is still in beta and under development, with lots of things on the TODO list, but I'm sure Johan and Kristoffer will make some sort of statement on that particular issue when it's more complete.

I'm on board for pre-order.

If it happens.

I'll write a haiku about my feelings:

Love Dominions 3
Really Love Dominions 3
Can't Wait, Head Explode

Thats a crap haiku
I wait without explosion
Still, daily I look

Well, you can view the progress page here:
http://jaffa.illwinter.com/coe3/coe3progress.html

That should give you an idea. Currently the game is playable, but incomplete and a lot of content is still missing. A portion of graphics needs an upgrade from the CoE2 era graphics. But on the whole things are progressing well.
