Starwarsfan8 @ Revenge of Revan

The creator does have a life, considering how much large the scale of a typical KOTOR RPG is, especially considering its being made by one guy. You have to be patient, this is a project that can't be rushed. The guy have real life obligations he has to priotize first.

Honestly I will wait as long as necessary, if the mod comes out eventually that's fine. We all have to be patient, and we will be rewarded with a new update most likely within this year.

We just have to be patient.

Question, will income buildings be changed? I always thought the vanilla version where you had to put your income buildings across the map to get the most income possible was really annoying. Would be possible to get the full 100 percent income but only be able to build a limited amounted . That way you could focus more on the battle than protecting your income buildings, from cheap surprise attacks and dumb cheese tactics?

I understand that, from my experience though Discord Servers for mods tend to have a lot more players than in Tuungle/Gameranger servers.While an average Tuungle server will have 5 to 20 people, Discord servers tend to have 60 to 100 on average from what i've seen. Yes I know you can't setup LAN games through Tuungle.

Also it would be a more reliable way of the players communicating with the mod creators through the Discord chat, as compared to using the forums, which personally I feel is a lot less personal and interactive.

Anyway I would love to see the Edain team try the idea, but that's not my call.

Is the Edain team ever going to setup a Discord server?

I found Tuungle and Gameranger to be very unreliable when it comes to setting up multiplayer games. Mostly because there are usually little to no people online to play multiplayer.

Question, what if the Edain team decided no longer support working AI and make the Edain mod purely multiplayer. Would that allow for more than 11 factions and if so what would be the new faction limit?
I am just curious

It's sad that there is so much negativity in the fan base these days. It's a testament to how impatient people are, especially for a mod as well made as this.

My message to the Edain fans everyone, a mod of this quality can only be done so quickly, especially considering it has no budget. Calm the heck down people.

Its tough because this a classic situation where the demand far outweights the supply. But no matter how many comments we make, salty or otherwise. Whether its on moddb or Moddingunion its not going to speed up the mod progression any faster.

4.5 is probably going to be one of, if not the biggest update in Edain history. Done by a team of less than 10 people, (not including testers).

The Edain mod isn't an RTS like Starcraft II or Total War where the game gets constant updates by the developers (who are usually made up of teams in the thousands.)

The best thing we can do to support the Edain team is provide POSITIVE criticism, helpful comments, and be patient.

Its just a couple of modders who work on the project for the passion of it. Not for money or attention.

So do them a favor and be patient, the update will be out eventually and we can all talk about it when that day comes. All you guys have to do is decide what to do with your given time.

My best wishes to the team, take your time, hell you guys deserve a vacation for all you've been through.

What will be the new version of Sauron's Influence on the Mordor Barracks?

So will Sauron's Influence Power on the Barracks be changed since Mordor Overseers will be summonable by spellbooks now?

Starwarsfan8 @ Edain Mod 4.5 The Spellbook

Interesting, I know it hasn't been announced yet but from what i've read from the article. But I am assumping "boundaries of balance" also factors in the strength and weaknesses of the faction.

I know the new spellbook powers haven't been announced yet but will factions get new units or buffs to their already existing units to make up for the loss of powers that will be removed like AOE powers? So factions can't utterly be dominated by larger numbers like Imladris (who usually gets trumped by a rush strategy from Isengard/Mordor)?

Maybe this argument is irrelevant as the siege update hasn't been added yet but I can't help but be concerned when it comes to how these changes could empower "rush" oriented factions.

Starwarsfan8 @ Edain Mod 4.5 The Spellbook

Wow, I am big fan of the Spellbook overhaul, I think it's a great step in the right direction for Edain. My concern though is the diversity of Spellbook spells among the factions, I know more details won't be released until future updates but as indicated in this update there is guaranteed to be one faction spell unique to each faction.

My concern is will future spellbooks have less abilities in common, or more abilities for the sake of keeping the spellbooks streamlined and balanced as less spell diversity means its less likely for a faction to have a spellbook power that allows them to dominate a match more easily.

Greetings Edain team, here's a question.

Would be possible to setup a Discord Server for Edain in the future. Its would be very convenient. I think it would make it easier to arrange tournaments as well as let the users talk to the Edain team directly as compared to leaving messages on Moddb or Modding Union.

Just a suggestion if its not too difficult to arrange.

Hey logan, do you ever plan on establishing a Revenge of Revan server on Discord so we the fans can discuss the mod with you?

Also your website got shut down.

I see, so games like Third Age Total War don't qualify, or you just don't want to risk a cease and desist letter from Warner Bros.

Sorry to hear, still good luck with the mod.

Starwarsfan8 @ Mod of the Year - Question of the Day 4

Did you guys ever wanted to make the Edain mod for a different game say Starcraft II or Age of Empires? Or possibly make the game from scratch on new engine entirely I.E Unreal Engine 4. As a way of not having to deal with technical difficulties like modding limitations as well as the lag that plagues Edain's online multiplayer. Especially considering that BFME II is ten years old.

Greetings Edain team,

This is my main question of the day. What RTS's played the biggest inspiration in how you designed the Edain mod in terms of gameplay? (Not counting BFME 1 and 2.)

Best of luck with the mod.

Greetings Edain team, I will just re post my question from the other day.

This is my main question of the day. What RTS's played the biggest inspiration in how you designed the Edain mod in terms of gameplay? (Not counting BFME 1 and 2.)


Also if you don't mind answering this question as well. What RTS in particular does the team consider to be the best overall in terms of gameplay?

And you guys are still developing Misty Mountain's economic systems?

You know how Angmar's external buildings including outposts spawn tribute charts. That you can bring to a building to gain resources and as well as increase the level of the building that receives the chart. That's the Angmar tribute system I am referring to, that I think Misty Mountain's Tribute system will copy.

Sorry I should have mention Misty Mountain's tribute system earlier.

Does that mean the tribute system will also be changed. I always thought it was going to be identical to Angmar's tribute charts system.

Starwarsfan8 @ Edain Mod 4.5 Siege

True, I guess what I am trying to say is that this patch might not be enough to fix the inbalance of offense vs defense since having more income is such a huge edge.

Starwarsfan8 @ Edain Mod 4.5 Siege

I love a lot of the ideas and concepts from this patch. It's looking really good although I do have some concerns.

1. In terms of external vs internal economy buildings, I do like the fact that external buildings provide less resources as to give the defender a better chance, but I would argue that considering both the offensive and defensive player can access and upgrade their internal economy buildings the same way, the offensive player will still have more of an advantage as the external economy buildings provide the additional edge the offensive player needs. Essentially the defensive player is still losing money wise, even if the advantage the offensive player has been reduced, also factoring in that the defensive player will be losing money to build new defenses and then has to get a decent enough army to make a comeback.

In a nutshell, don't you think the defensive player will still lose anyway even with a reduction in external building income since the offensive player will still be making far more money since he can achieve the same amount of income that the defensive player has in terms of internal buildings, in addition to the external buildings he has through map control.


2.I do like the idea of a ladder/troop siege strategy being more viable, I do have a concern that this strategy will limit the defensive player in terms of their ability to build an army as the enemy troops can just kill said troops as they are being trained, forcing the defensive player to scramble before the offensive player sabotages the defensive player's base to the point where they can't recover.

Overall though I do think this patch is an overall improvement and perhaps my concerns don't have any real merit, I just feel that it could lead to a meta that isn't healthy for the game considering the offensive player has more options to sabotage the defensive player. But I guess we will see when the patch comes out, I am curious how it will turn out. And you guys are aware of the concerns as well which makes me happy, "The values aren't set in stone."

Keep up the good work. :)

(SPOILERS FOR THE OLD REPUBLIC)

I still remember when this mod first came out and back then people didn't even know what Vitiate looked like. He was just some shadowy dude in a chair.

Then he got reincarnated as the Ruler of the Eternal Empire and died again. Look how far we have been. By the time this mod comes out the Old Republic MMO will probably be cancelled like Star Wars Galaxies.

Still you can't rush quality. Good luck Logan23!!!
