In the event that this TE lawsuit helps you get back to work on the mod, what do you think about taking this Moddb page down and quietly continue working on the mod?Possibly even under a different name (elvish for instance)
I imagine the TE could easily type "middle earth mods" in google and quickly find yours therefore putting your project in danger yet again (which would be pretty stupid lol).
Remember, TE sent a C&D letter to a LOTR Morrowind mod, so be careful. Without the help of public claims, do you still think you could finish this? Perhaps you could still hire people by starting a thread on Nexus for an "Extremely ambitious untitled mod" ?
Choosing this between Black Mesa and Doom 3: Phobos was tough... But you guys need the votes!
You have my sword.
What about this? Youtube.com
It's not over yet, so I wouldn't get excited.
Hey MERP team! I have an off-topic question for you. You guys play Planetside 2 right? If so, what server are you on and what faction? It would be cool if we could play together :D, my username is Doomguy666.
How likely is it that TE will win the case?
I know! If they win against WB, they can work incognito(and take down this page) on the Rohan release and then they could release it, along with the whole heightmap and say it is finished with updates coming every few months/years. What do you think?
This is so funny!
And why shouldn't it?Even if you are a curmudgeonly purist, you have to admit that from a visual and audio perspective, the movies are fantastic.
Too violent? We're talking about war! And there is actually not that much action (when taking in consideration a 12 hour movie). I think people should be grateful for what we have. Have you seen the Boorman script? I hope you haven't, you would have seen naked hobbits if he had directed it.
Also, don't think CT will receive MERP with open arms and quite frankly, he's a douchebag. He disowned his own SON just for giving PJ some advice when making the movies. He is NOT like his father.
P.S In 2003 the Tolkien Estate sent a C&D letter to a Morrowind Middle Earth mod, so I would be careful.
Even if that does happen, won't MERP be in dager of the Tolkien Estate?
LOTR SLOT MACHINE?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Keep your chin up guys! Frodo Lives!
If all goes wrong have you considered working on the mod under the radar until then? I am thinking they might not renew the licence immediately so wouldn't it be possible to release it within this time gap? Also, have you asked them whether you can work on it but only release it after their licence expires? I imagine you've already considered this possibility but I posted this just in case. Is there really no loophole in case all goes wrong?
Any idea when their gaming licence expires?
So how are the negotiations going?
You think so? Just look at what happened to Middle-Earth Roleplaying Project for Skyrim. I would stay under the radar until the first release.
Isn't that one of the stages of Phase 2?
Very cool! Again, it reminds me of Half Life, which is not a bad thing at all.
So what do you think?
OH MY GOD!!!Incredible. You guys have really become better at this since Nehrim.
It IS impressive. I can't wait for it.
So where is that update?
So what do you guys think of the new levels in the BFG Edition? I thought the tech bases were quite the same as the ones in Doom 3. The hell levels on the other hand are very well done. Each area of the maps is substantially different to the last one. I even rode a boat!
From the tone of your message you don't sound very confident. And what do you mean spreading the word is the ONLY way?I know it's going to help but isn't the lawyer your best shot at this?
A kickstarter for a licence COULD work. I am not sure whether it is legal though.
Then the fans themselves can make the patch with the supervision of the MERP team.
I'm surprised Skyrim Nexus hasn't written an article about this yet. Have you contacted them?
