Cradle is very promising and of course M&B is here. The others look quality but honestly notvas interesting in my eyes. Also, why do you do Top 5 Upcoming but Top 10 IOTY? I feel both players choice sets should be Top10. I mean, the upcoming indies really do need the exposure to stay on their feet.
The awards are announced periodically over the course of the next several days, ending on Christmas with the Mod of the Year/Indie of the Year Awards (I think that it is either the Player's Choice or Editor's Choice that goes last; not sure). So you will see other awards like "best upcoming" and "best art direction" etc first. I think.
Awesome! I didn't think that the trailer looked 2.5D :P . This game has a lot of potential imo
Sweet. Skyrim mods FTW
Holy crap...all three big upcoming Skyrim mods are in the top ten most popular list right now :O . Awesome!
"But I am different from the others! I will create a better world than any that came before me!"
[insert obligatory disclaimer here]
Actually, correction to what I previously said. The enhancements and the ones to follow are thanks to Barbas.
Not usually a mecha game nut but this looks pretty awesome. Tracking. I am currently penniless (ok, I might have some pennies somewhere...but anyway), but I hope you manage to get more than enough (Oculus Rift support would be amazing). I'll see if anyone else at Epoch Games would ne interested in tracking or backing. As part of a fledgling indie dev (and a long member of an ambitious mod team) team, I know the kind of crazy hard work that goes into what you do. Good luck!
Shoot, lets put as many Skyrim mods as we can in the top 5! This mod and the other two in the Upcomin lineup both deserve it!
And keep up the awesome work, SureAI ;)
We will put updates out as often as we can. However, not all aspects of development lend themselves to screenshots and video :P . However, when we have good things to show, we'll show them. Within reason of course; we don't want to spoil everything ;)
A huge shout out from us at Epoch Games to everyone who voted to get Lays of Althas: Sundered Order in the Top 100 in its first ever IOTY competition! You've shown a lot of confidence in us early on and we are going to strive not to let you down! :)
*whatsoever to do with Skyrim
First, Althas isn't a mod so it has nothing whatsoever to do with Althas. Second, you are not representative of everyone on this page; it burns me when fans try to say they are representative of everyone. Third, the news post is an accident, not intentional.
We would love to but Moddb, brilliantly, makes that painfully difficult. The post wasn't SUPPOSED to wind up there in the first place. So no, we aren't trying to leech off this page. In fact, we would love to have the news post removed so that the original post about MERP ending as the front page news post so that we can stop getting uninformed questions about MERP updates, release dates, and progress >_>
That is the system we are anticipating ;) . It is in use in Star Citizen. We want the world seamless. Althas will be released episodically, with each episode or "chapter" being a self contained experience that opens up new regions. So as the game is released, the playable area will expand until the whole map is open to you.
Wow. I wasn't sure about this mod at first, but now...it looks pretty freakin awesome! I'll be watching this one.
Nice to see some awesome updates. And just in time for MOTY ;) . Well you have my nomination. Hope to see a lot of Skyrim mods competing in the top 100!
So it's MOTY and IOTY time. I encourage all you still around here to go and vote for the great projects being done, especially for Skyrim! Enderal Shards of Order Moddb.com and Ethas Embrace of Destiny Moddb.com are two great total conversions for Skyrim that really deserve some support. There are also these great addon style mods: Moddb.com Moddb.com Moddb.com . Hope we can put some great Skyrim mods on display in the top 100!
Also, as many of you know, some of us from MERP have formed a new team and are working on a new project: Lays of Althas: Sundered Order, an open world RPG on CryEngine. We would appreciate your support in IOTY. Moddb.com
While we appreciate the sentiment, please don't push this. We don't want our project to overshadow other ambitious and extremely high quality projects being developed now that MERP is canceled. Enderal, Ethas, and many other projects for Skyrim and other games deserve it more. They are in fast development and making good progress. Give them some love. At the very least, don't try to push MERP past the Top 100.
Got my vote. Easily. Good luck :)
Of course not! That would spoil all the fun :P
We will have one out as soon as it is ready. There may be other items being released soon as well ;)
Unfortunately, that concept and armor were done by Lessontwo and Justb, respectively. Those two have been very off the radar; haven't been able to make contact go get permission :( .
I would disagree. While LOTR characters are pretty standard, Silmarilion characters see a lot more depth and complexity despite the broadness of scope.
I will say this: he is incorrect to say that the world is purely black and white. Look at the Silmarillion. Look at the Children of Hurin. Was Faenor fighting Morgoth evil or good? Was Turin a hero or a vilain? To assert black and white was the constant standard is to ignore the source material as much as those who assert that it is all grey.
As for the wraith bit, they lost me there. I would think wraiths lack the majority of free will honestly; they may be able to think freely and regret and so on, but I highly doubt that they can choose to do things contrary to the will and nature that controls them.
I don't pass judgment before release easily, but I'm not getting my hopes up. Been ages since we had a LOTR game I would even consider decent, much less good. So I am anticipating a pure cash-in mediocre action game. I hope I am wrong of course, but I doubt it.
I'm not usually one for mods that diverge so drastically from the main setting...but I might have to play this one anyway just because of how well done it is. Most impressive.
Looking at this...it makes me want to play Fallout! And makes me long to see Fallout 4...
Serch "MERP" on Skyrim Nexus (skyrim.nexusmods.com). BGS has uploaded his Gondor Armor sets there.
