Did the person who threw it get awarded a medal for one of the finest throws in history.
(What I like is that he's holding the other shoe in his hand: "And here's the other one!")
Yeah I always carry a hammer when I'm out in the woods...
Really nice. I like it when people use the editor to create well composed pictures and "movies".
Ragdoll glitch. Had that in battlefield.
Can't we turn GaGa into a clothing item,.. although unfortunatly I don't enjoy wearing synthetic materials.
Frankly its more realistic looking armour. Like a cross between a Space
Marine and a character from Hellgate London.
I love mines aslong as its not "lay down millions". That defeats any tactical skill. Best when it's open to options and part of the tactical mix. Maybe laying single traps in key areas might be good?
I always figured they would sleep like modern day birds and not mammals. Maybe with unihemispheric slow wave sleep to keep half the brain awake at any one time.
Seeing as its now likely to be an all round bad boy for tactical consolidation. As it's UEF, how about calling it:
Imperium: area of dominion, sphere of control.
Consolidator: to unite into a single entity. To make something solid and firm. In this case mobile defense of an area of ground.
I imagine it being heavy on firepower and relatively slow moving, behind the front lines?
Although as stated in an above post, Horizon isn't a bad fit.
Really great unit.
Pandora (you'll regret opening it)
Call it the Flak-U
I don't think its the video card you need to worry about its the ram.
Inside is a bottle of water... nothing strange about that.
Looks great. I'd fancy creating a mission someday.
Wait a minute... that's not Putin!
Arguably it was the failure to "properly" march on Moscow that lead to the failure of the axis in the east.
What does get me about this game is the comical (Hollywood) muzzle flash for weapons.
Mg42 with a flame thrower attachment.
But other than some niggles to be ironed out, its moving along ok.
Great to see the legal system "works"...
Worst thing to happen to a nation is when the law becomes a coin toss or more accurately; a bunch of tossers sat clueless, "ruling" before lunch so they can get out before traffic.
This boycott applies to anyone who cares about freedom.
Anyone who cares about sitting down and doodling a picture on a notepad and not getting hunted down by someone claiming copyright infringement.
Anyone who cares about a creative world where people can work together to pursue their dreams and share their creations with others.
Anyone who is fed up with big heavy-weight, greedy corporations (servants of Mordor) strangling the 'free peoples' and their freedom to smoke pipe-weed and live their lives without being under the control of any dark powers of Morgoth.
So even if you don't know about MERP, don't really care about Lord Of The Rings or never leave your cave unless you run out of toilet tissue, this still affects you!
So please sign the petition (once).
More importantly boycott Warner bros
and tell the world your angry.
Nobody owns Tolkien and nobody owns creativity and I will fight anyone who claims they do.
This shows how broken the laws are to do with copyright, "intellectual property" and corporate power.
What would Tolkien think of all this?!
Thankfully I bought the rights to Tolkien's opinions. So I can tell you he thinks warner bros need to take a running jump into Mount Doom.
By the way someone should see about ModDB giving this headline news status on the home page
I don't think that's the case here as they have already made the move. This is just the reaction and its the best course of action. If the word gets out and is spread, I believe most people will support the Mod; including people who have never heard of MERP, who share the sentiment that warner bros is wrong. Get the wider modding community involved and you've already got a big support base.
warner bros is all about money, so when they see the weigh up between a non existant threat from merp that they just imagined and the real threat of people's anger then a wise organisation would change their mind fast. Only worry is does warner bros have anyone with enough brain cells.
Either way let's give them hell.
Well I'm not doing buisness with warner bros, that's for certain. They can shove their overprice, low grade crap where the sun don't shine.
So youre saying that you'd have sexual relations with Justin if he had long hair and lip gloss??
Obviously Norway. The women arn't even doing any training and they still look "fitter".
Otherwise known as Wally.
I think the enemy decided to skittle their ship.
Seems you forgot to move the mouse cursor off screen in two of the pictures. But I like the thought and detail thats gone into the map.
Totally agree about the Roddenbery philosophy and "reboot" (ughhh I hate the term reboot, sounds like everything these days can be "wiped" and started again with a press of a button). I treat the two as competely seperate entities and only have a heart for the originals and TNG.
Loving the detail going into this, much passion.
Damn it, I hate when I spell "You're" wrong!
Your right, the game engine and the limited map sizes makes long ranges impractical from a tactical perspective. It doesn't fit the scale of the game, sadly.
But from a video making or custom scenario its still interesting.
For me the range is dependant on other factors, such as if the battlefield has been designed with the range in mind or if other mechanics are adapted to fit, like the AI engangement ranges etc. Vanilla worked well in its own way and worked for tactical perposes with the original limitations of the game. The MowAS versions increased ranges stressed out playablilty on some of the smaller maps when using anything more powerful than infantry.
My word! Putin has an evil look in his eyes.
Oh how I love CryEngine.
Yep, that looks really good.
Its flat pack for easy shipping.
12 soldiers per box.
The MG sounds very good, except it has a slight sound like it was recorded in a concrete building and not in the open.
Does anyone know, if they're using GEM 2 or GEM 3 (or other) for this?
Edit: It does look more like GEM 2 when I look a little closer.
Like the European Union.
I like the shell casings discarded from the wings.
This guy needs his own TV show or a major film role as himself.
A human "guided" missile
The wheels or bogies in real life are removable. Relatively few Flak 41's were made. The in game Flak 41 dosen't have an accurate in game model anyway.
Thats not true. The french did attack and capture Mulhouse in Alsace for example.
My point was that it didn't occur often and so I mearly pointed out it wasn't as likely with less historic situations to choose from.
This is the first world war. Not many German cities to choose from.
Must be something to do with Dwarves.
You mean scans...
But its ok I don't think anyone noticed.
Technically it doesn't scan perfectly either but hay ho, on we go...
Somethings been changed in the matrix
Damn it... wrong fiction again.
The ninjas are holding them up!
This is great. Really good work and love the smoke and sound effects. Really excellent.
The meaning of the word has no bearing on the joke, merely the knowledge of its context.
A lot of things in the Movies don't make a whole lot of sense. Often things are changed or omitted that end up losing a great chunk of the character/detail/logic from the books & the things that are valued by many are left out. Leading them to be 'Peter Jackson's' LOTR & not Tolkiens.
I give these guys (devs) a whole lot of respect for setting the books & manuscripts of Tolkiens Arda first and walking a finer line. Especially as this isn't a movie but a rpg game where greater immersion and depth is greatly desired.
So let them create their project as they see fit. They are gracious & modest enough to recognise that views will differ on something so grand & engage with the community of enthusiasts of book & film to better the results.
Frankly I may not agree with every nut & acorn (so far I mostly do) but I'm not the one putting in the hours.
So for me; "The road goes ever on and on...
...And I must follow, if I can..."
Your praise is appreciated. I've noted your own map work, so thank you.
It is still in progress with tweeks and script work.
Yeah it does look a bit like someone whacked him with a painbrush.
Must be a world shortage.
Man, I'd be ****** enough to join Chaos too if someone had written on my forehead.
I'm confident I can beat you at Pictionary
My word. That's quite the veteran.
Humm, I can't see the wood for the trees...
Hope the dev's don't get lost whilst making it.
Great to see they created some new buildings so it doesn't look like every other city/town/farm/airfield in the mow series!
Oh wait... no they havn't.
Excellent. This is exactly the sort of thing I've been wondering about trying out. Thank you.
Attacking with a mine is known as suicide. They are intended for defence. They are great at protecting areas like flanks. I love making the enemy fear them. Mines are great because you don't need many to make the foe think twice about a charge and its sometimes good to let them know you laid some.
That better have a long build time, even with quick dry concrete. :-P
Actually it doesn't have to be .dds
For example it can be .bmp
Also if someone accidently takes the image, for example from the south, just rotate to the correct position during edit. Most important is that it is vertical and perpendicular.
I've just tested it and you're totally right it doesn't seem to work. My memory must be terribly poor :-)
It would be good if the game spawned an entity for the smoke but it seems to be part of the object.
Sorry about the confusion.
I might have forgotten how the smoke fx spawns but if its an already crashed/distroyed vehicle at the start of the game, then each smoke fx is its own entity and can be located and deleted. I may have misremembered but thats how I think they can be prevented at the start of the game loading. If I'm way off, someone will correct me I'm sure.
Can't you locate and delete the fx entities for each smoke column? Or have I misunderstood what you meant? :-)
Misuse of artifacts is highly dangerous and not recommended.
Moonwalking to the front.
It's not blitzkrieg. Shamone!
I love this map.
Lovely attention to detail, good lighting. Would love to see more. Interested in the overall design.
I'd enter mine, if I didn't consider it to be ineligible. Plus there are better maps around :-)
I love it. I hope somewhere or somewhen your skins are available to download.
I love this one!
Some really well thought out and researched maps you've made here. It's good to finally see some historic battlefields to go with the historically accurate divisions. Both halves make a whole ;-)
Sounds good and looks good. Looking forward to it.
The new official patch caused all sorts of 'issues' for me, so I've gone back to older patches.
Also, it's the town of Cassino (two S's).
Now U.S.S Cheeseburger would have made a great TV show.
These are the voyages of the starship Cheeseburger...
no its due to a poor/lazy reskin on the model
Looks like you beat me to the release (although thats not difficult with the speed im going) :-P . I'll try it out
That's a really well thought out design and attention to detail. Again realistic lighting settings is superb.
What is meant in the description "... time of day will be changed in more dramatic one"?
Of course, had to do something with thousands of captured equipment.
Absolutely brilliant skin!
Just wanted to say I've done my own skins for fun from time to time and I recommend reducing the vibrance of some of the colours (in this case the green). From real life into a game world its always best to be careful with colours. I really like your work, great effort, keep at it.
I like the ones you've done based on historic paints and patterns best, top job.
p.s My avatar image isn't a good example of subtle or historic, but tiger skin on a kt, I had to do it, :).
