With the quadratic structure, one gate on each side, the plaza in the middle and the block-like building arrangement, it reminds me a lot of the older Total War games^^
Now that is the very definition of badass.
The high elves of the TA shall have golden-blue shields, that is true. But I think you missed the point: The elven soldiers of the last alliance from the SA, when summoned with the spell, should have the "pure" gold shields, as seen in the first of the LotR movies ;-)
Don't worry, it's all fine (now) :D
Although the golden elf still seems to have a few problems with his eyes :-P
I can't wait for the special extended edition. At least we'll get to see the full battle of the five armies then :-)
I think you mean "The sphere expand's' outward and detect's' ships [...]" ;-)
Very, very beautiful! While I'm happy to see this mod reach a full version, it's also sad that there will be no further updates.
Let's just hope it will not end in oblivion :-)
Is it just me or does it look fat around the hips?
They had accidentally uploaded an alternative version of the trailer which had included a blooper of a fellbeast that fell through the gate after it had been shot by the archers^^
"Unfortunately", they have now replaced it with the right trailer^^
Don't you know the LEGO LotR games? There is one (two, three ... ^^) for the Hobbit too ;-)
I don't think you should list the Evil men as potential upcoming faction. Too many would view it as an announcement and then they'd be dissapointed when the Edain developers act otherwise.
Btw, did the Edain developers confirm this group? Or is it - purely - a fan organisation?
I wouldn't consider roughly 2 months to be that very long ;-)
I'm still angry that from the movie "Battle of the five armies", about half of the Battle of the five armies was cut out to be sold with the extended edition only >:-(
Also, you simply can't have enough fighting dwarven armies in a movie ^.^
I'll correct: The gameplay was good, great even. The usage of lore however was abysmal.
In turn, the designs were at least nice to look at, as the graphical concepts were made by the Weta Workshop itself (if I remember correctly). So while "The Shadow of Mordor" was certainly a fun experience by itself, as soon as you try to set it in a serious relationship with the true middle earth, you get full-blown errors in the tolkien matrix ;-)
Maybe it could use a bit more color variation, but that's just a random thought^^
It looks awesome either way! :D
You shouldn't, there's no way all the new features could be finished, balanced, playtested, fledged out and polished in only the next 2-3 weeks.
But maybe, only maybe, you can hold in in your hands before christmas 2015 ;-)
Is this "your own" music? I like it, but it sounds more like a sandbox RPG to me instead of an epic dinosaur park construction theme^^
What are the Uruk-Hai of Saruman doing there (on the left of the image)? Are they taking the Hobbit to Isengard?
I know you're meaning it as an honest compliment, but I'll just note that being better than EA is not necessarily a big deal ;-)
It's great to hear that there are still things going on behind the curtains! Keep up the good work ;-)
Good luck with your new project!
Although I really hope that the new shiny things which you already started for the next update for Total Mayhem will be finished and released too one day.
Tbh, I love the hobbit movies because of the awesome images of middle earth they deliver (erebor architecture being my favorite here). The story however has been quirked up quite a bit and is certainly the weaker part of the inscenation.
I love that image, but it's not the siege of helm's deep. Afaik, it's a cover from one of the book from "The Dwarves" (by Markus Heitz) (excellent read btw, apart from the fourth, which I don't recommend) ;-)
The T-Rex model is pretty awesome (both!), but on this one I really don't like the proportions. Maybe it's the perspective, but the legs look much too small in comparison to the rest, which also doesn't really fit 100% together in terms of member scale.
An unexpected update for sure, but nonetheless great to see you alive :-)
Good luck on your further progress, maybe on my old days, I'll even see a new version of this mod (holy axe, the V2 Alpha release has been over 3 years ago already) ... :D
Nooooo, I added a rather long edit saying how I would've loved to see the workings of Legolas and Gimli (Gardens and defenses, respectively) (after the War of the Ring) added to this, then ModDB threw an error into my face saying "Uuh comment field required derp" and deleted all the nice formulations... I know why I've got AdBlocker enabled for you, TrollDB!
Very impressive, especially the complex city layout is quite appealing to me. It's just an aesthetic thing that annoys me, the glorious City of Kings should look more colorful, living and vibrant in its shining color palette, and not like a greyscale-3D-print^^
Oh, alright, I didn't find that in the FAQ.txt or the How-to-supercap.txt, usually I like to build everything "up from the ground", so it was disabled. Good to know, I'll watch out for that button to be enabled in my next games! :-)
I have correctly installed SoGE with LAA and everything (and it works fine, no crashes in ~6h and I can't select vanilla factions).
Only rather big problem is that in the first round I played as the Republic (from the Clone Wars) on a Random medium map and spawned with 2 Tier I and 1 Tier II ship factory, no supercap (which I checked multiple times, but I didn't get a Tier III supercap factory). That rendered me unable to produce supercaps, which was quite sad, as I would have loved to get some of them into action. Haven't tried more games yet, so I can't say with certainty if that bug is reproducable, but it seems worth looking at, I guess ;-)
Awesome! I can see how the release will bind me to Sins of a Solar Empire once again (haven't tried this mod out yet, because I found it only a few months ago and the images made me rather wait for the next release than play the old one and find it not as good as the screenshots)^^
Really looking forward to exploring this magnificient piece of software! :D
Thanks for uploading it again here, I guess it's the one which didn't work on YouTube for me^^
Absolutely stunning work so far! :-)
Oh, the circle is the arena, right?
You might put gates in there which spawn geonosian guards, Acklays, Reeks and Nexus :-)
It will be difficult to animate correctly ...
