My name is Alasdair and worked on the MERP project.
thats a good set of questions.
none of this is set in stone as we aren't up to this sort of thing yet.
there is likely going to be factions of sorts, such as maybe joining the army or specific groups of people.
you will be able to own your own house/s
we are planning a realism mode
we may include crafting
MERP is running for file of the month on TESNexus so get voting guys!
we are already in 1st place so lets keep it that way :D
Yes it will be huge! certain areas will be infested, and survivors are unlikely as they would have been killed or fled ;)
nope- its not the same mod, AME was a German mod for middle earth which had way too high aims (a heightmap 660 km² (Oblivion is about 42 km², MERP is about 210km² which is the limit of the game)
2. Badly generated LOD couses this lag. It will be fixed in future releases
yeah a tenth fellowship member was talked about, but then decided against it.
and remember - I said you WONT be frodo, you will just be taking his place as the ring-bearer. (if you are a hobbit and choose to take this path)
Nope - no tenth fellowship member i'm afraid, in the main quest, you are the ringbearer (not frodo though- you are taking frodo's place).
by full release he means 1.0 :)
we may start adding playable evil characters and questlines after 1.0
though you still can play as an evil character through modding the game yourself (ticking the evil npc's as playable, but thats cheating... :D)
SI is highly recommended but can still run without it at the moment.
if you do not have SI you may find a few missing textures and models, but it is still playable.
not in 1.0
later releases may do though
it depends how may bugs are found in the merge. likely to be around the second maybe third week.
There never was any recent uploads at MODDB and never any @ Ning (only links)
Ning site is closing down anyway doe to the fact that it is paid
We will probably upload our new BETA to MODDB as an installer.
Awesome! gonna buy that then now :P
