About The Last Hope of the Third Age with 2 comments by Halbarad1996 on Dec 6th, 2014

Hello all.
Firstly, I want to say about nearest plans of mod's future. After patch 1.1, which will be released in the end of December, I'm planning to work on campaign.
Generally, I already wanted to add campaign in 2012, after 0.31 release. And I even had started working, but I understood that mod (and game) isn't suitable for my plans.
And what I want? In short:

  • 3rd person missions with dialogs. Of course, handling isn't too convenient, but it's possible.
  • Epic battles with a little movie-style scenes.
  • Hero battles (as in Third Age game for consoles).

So, first and third items wouldn't hard to releasing, but second item was a real problem.
Why? Just because in original game (and in TLHotTA 0.31) units aren't suitable for epic battles. They moving too fast and funny, they don't look normally in planning-battles (directed battles). In addition, not every faction has full set of siege weapons (as siege ladders\towers and battering rams), but it was needed for my plans.
And I decided that I must rework all missing aspects, before I would work on campaign.
So, now first stage is completed (well, almost) and I can start creating campaign. But I don't know exactly, maybe I willn't have enough time to do it, so it isn't definitive decision.
Well, now I show you my little developments in campaign direction by 2012:

Anarion



Isildur

Dock of Minas-Tirith

Minas-Tirith



Council

Inn

Dagorlad battle

Well, not all are ideal, but I think, that now I can do it better a lot ;) If I will have enough time and desire.

And second thing I want to say is artillery switcher in launcher, which will be in 1.1 version.
You will be able to turn off/on all artillery in mod. I decide to create this possibility because of many people didn't like my ideas about Modern Middle-Earth.

It all for now.
See you.

Hi just wanted to let all those Battlefront fans know that there is a page on facebook with 5,500 likes called "Who Else Wants Star Wars Battlefront III ?" The aim is to get Lucasarts to notice what fans actually want. If you wish to show your support simply log onto Facebook and go to the page and click Like.

Gaming websites have taken notice and even written articles so Lucasarts can see and every like that the page gets is another step towards Battlefront 3 being developed.

Thanks :)

Did you copy the game files from another PC ? That happened to me back when I had no knowledge about EA games,like C&C Generals,it does the same thing if you copy the game from another PC. Anyhow,even if you have a pirated version this should not be the problem... Just try re installing it,or download another version.
