It's not dead. On the right hand side click the link to their "official page", it's a forum.
From what I've gathered they're pretty much done on the art side of things, it's the boring scripting work that needs finished but of course there's not much they can show in terms of that.
Hold tight, it will come. (and hopefully an AoE2:HD compatible version, hint hint devs ;) )
They said there would be an HD version when I asked a few months back, but there was no mention of how long it would take to port it over.
Couple of questions: -
-Was there a specific reason behind not having dwarves as a playable faction? (their small unit size making the art difficult to display well maybe?)
-The AI, is it like the standard AOE2 AI that "cheats" and gets extra resources given to them, or does it provide a challenge while not cheating like some custom AI's?
Great! do you think it will be able to work via the steam workshop, due to how much it changes the game?
I'm fine with it being a manual download if it needs to be, but I'm sure it would get you guys a much bigger player base if it was available on the workshop.
Cheers for the reply :]
This is the first time in years that I've signed into moddb - just to ask this very question.
I've just got the HD version, after not playing the original in about 12 years... wondered if there was a LOTR mod and this was the first thing that showed up on google :]
need more of these ^_^
cool stuff. get more of these going!
Not going to say to much for now, but the medic will be a very useful class. It will be able to heal both health and armour on the player, will have an anti-air unit attack, as well as a couple of other nify abilities. just wait and see. :)
patch released, check the sit
and its an alpha release, not beta ^_^
"Really nice video,i like the deadcow map the most .I noticed that there weren't any wasps,does that mean that you guys won't be adding them?Or is it that you couldn't get the wasps in for beta1?"
This first release is an alpha. the Wasp team is no longer in the mod, and will be replaced by an "alliance" team (insects from different species joined together to take on the ants and termites).
This is purely for ballance reasons. a full team of wasps would simply be to powerfull. Although, a wasp will still fill the role of the flying unit within the alliance :)
forgot to say that tutorial was on how to get the weapons in-game - not how to model/skin them. thats the easy bit ^_^
due to starting uni it's hard to find time to do my normal mod work for insects-infestation, nevermind write tutorials :(
They really do need one though, the only one i found (on the oblivion wiki) was out of date at the time i used it, had to figure a good bit of it out myself.
haha, editors choice award! xD
I'm going to upload my first oblivion weapon aswell, but sadly i cant give out my latest two :(
I'm very proud of them, and i've contributed them to the creator of the OOO mod so they should make an appear in a version of that some day :). You can see some in-game and render shots of them on my site, though.
great skin on the green thing
orange juice for me
this shot was takin during an animation sequence for the bite. normally they are at the side of the screen.
read the update on the front page of our website to find out.
my only gripe is with the animations, they seemed a bit clunky, not very natural.
Actually, are team is tiny, 3 man team!
ignore the team page on our website(and pretty much every other page), it hasnt been updated in yonks!
an update is on its way soon.
What weedwacker said is partially true.
modelling isnt slow, its just that all of the player models are already made ;). Its only a few view models needing to be done for first release.
As for maps i am the only mapper, but im also working on all of the prop modells, creating every texture in the game, working on the last remaining player-made structure models and skinning them, as well as all the other un-skinned models, so im sort of all over the place atm :)
i just seen the movie yesterday and thought it would be perfect for a mod to be based on!
On all honesty this type of mod shouldnt be hard to make. good luck, hope to see some media soon :)
Dont worry, II WILL be released, and with many an update after that ;)
We just have a small dedicated core team, so it can take a while to build up a nice media release :)
wasps will not be in the first release.
