I'm gonna try New Horizons with the new release. Looks like a lot of work was put into it. Is there a wiki for the new stuff or something?
Those skill bars for new units look a little overcrowded though.

Looks great! Two ideas: 1. I think that the Mod could become a lot more popular if there were some videos on Youtube (the only ones which I find refer to the vanilla version). Let's play videos often work well. 2. I don't know if it's possible, but the absence of fighting animations might turn quite a few people off from the game. I think even very primitive animations would help in that regard.

Hardly possible, and in every tactical game (especially if it's a long one) players eventually turn those off, because when you play chess, you don't want a cinematic takedown of a rook by a knight, you want to execute the damn plan. In the very next thread people complain that new XCOM manages to be slower than it's 20 years old predecessor while allowing to command 6 soldiers with a pair of actions instead of 14+ with loads of TUs.

I remember how I never got to see the gorgeous animations in Disciples 2 because I turned the speed up to max in the first hour.

Looks like a lot of effort to put into something that the core audience tends to ignore.

Link is not working for me.

Tool: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cq4hyfhq3ocjfav/eadoropedia_creator_1.0.1.zip?dl=0

Instructions translated with Google Translate

Generator Eadoropedii
Eadoropedii Generator - is a program through which you can generate the type Eadoropedii Eadoropediyu for fashion "New Horizons."

Setting

If you have not installed Java, then you need to first install it. Download Java: http://www.java.com

If the folder has a subfolder Eador "eadoropedia", it is necessary to rename / move.

Download and unzip the program folder Eador

After unpacking, you'll see two new directories - eadoropedia and eadoropedia-creator. To generate Eadoropediyu, run one of the .bat-files in the folder eadoropedia-creator:

generate-all.bat - generates a completely Eadoropediyu (pages and images)
generate-html.bat - generates only web-page (all but the pictures)
generate-images.bat - generates only Images

Creating web-pages usually lasts 10-15 seconds, while drawing pictures of dat-files can take 10-15 minutes (maybe in the future, this process will be optimized).

To open Eadoropediyu, point your browser to the index.html page from the catalog eadoropedia

Important! Folder Eador and its "parent" folder must not contain Cyrillic and other "special" characters! Otherwise, the export picture is not working.

There are quite a few already on you tube ... but AFAIK only in Russian. Are you looking for a Let's play video that highlights a specific aspect of the game? If yes, your best bet may be to post on the main eador forum (make a new thread in http://eador.com/B2/viewforum.php?f=33) and ask. Most likely someone will be able to recommend a specific Let's play video and give you a link.

You are supporting a highly talented dev, Alexey Bokulev (AB), by your monetary steam transfer. IIIC, Eador Genesis has been released as freeware http://www.eador.com/eador1/downloads.html . The modding community has simply responded with releasing NH as standalone, too.

Some copy & paste from discussion on this issue from the MotBW thread http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/masters-of-the-broken-world-eador-2.70206/page-35

Based on reading GOG forums, devs seem to make legal agreements with predefined expiration dates with Steam/GOG as a distribution platform. Speculation in the eador community is that after the regular expiration date of these agreements are reached there may be an official freeware announcement. I have never seen the legal fine print of these agreements. In case they contain financial sanctions for "undermining" behaviour you may cause trouble for AB, the creator of Eador Genesis by contacting Steam/GOG directly.

If you are interested in the issue it may be smarter to contact AB directly via pm http://eador.com/B2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=2&sid=218276023ec42420e0d21eae47bda613.

Eh, really ? Last time i checked the game was literally unplayable on newer hardware, author didnt care to fix it, and slowdown software helped only a little bit but still left the experience severely lacking. Are all of you people playing it on your mothballed Pentium 4s ?

You just have to set your Power options to 50% max processor power, then it runs perfectly.
