So you are not a modder, having never made a mod in your life. But this, THIS! is your personal crusade, fight the good fight for modders everywhere aye.
Well as someone who spent years and endless hours working on a mod team that took many MORE years then i did to make it, we don't want or need you fighting our battles, most certainly not in the 8 year old fashion you are doing it in.
The modder here was trying to do the right thing, but a few people were not contactable... why is that so strange to you. YES, many times modders do not think further then the nose on their face. I make a mod, and i allow all those to use it who message me... only a short or long time later i no longer visit M&B forum or have anything to do with the game. 20 mods use my stuff, but not the 21st guy, nope, because i am long long gone, never read emails and don't visit forums anymore. This stuff happens all the time. I personally just put, use it if you want, just add my name to credits, that's it. And i can vanish from the face of the earth and it won't be an issue. But no, some modders take posesssion of their stuff like it is gold, and make things hard for 99 modders just so that 1 modder who will steal it anyway doesn't get it... well news for modders like that, if that was the case, there would be NO games industry, luckily the games industry is not so fanatical... least not yet.
So take it easy, take a deep breath and relax. This guy is NOT the bad guy, he is doing the right thing. There are serious violaters in modding, i know it, but there is misunderstanding and there is ********. Not everything is the worst case, this guy is not an *******, just let him fix the issue and no more insults.
have a nice day.
Oh sorry should have been more clear, when you are on the map and you go to camp menu it says, build a fort $5000, so when you do that, it is just a man standing there, same as the build stronghold/village and such. You can go into the scene and it is a fort, but on the map it is simply a man icon standing there.
I noticed the us_inf_hat_3 or something, the brown gas mask with cowboy hat, is set to pistol slot instead of helmet slot, so it is asking for a pre-requisite which cannot be met.
Also, only the tsarist gun can be used as melee, all the others do strange things from switching to pistol mod or swtiching to infinite ammo.
Also, when establishing a fort, is it meant to simply be a man standing there? would be great if the icon was a fort, or town, or castle whatever it is you build. or is it a feature not fully implemented yet.
LOVING THIS MOD! love the steam punk atmosphere, the armours and guns, the gas masks rock, and the unique look of all the faction troop lines.
Keep going this is shaping up to being EPIC.
Wow, so much kudos to you my friend. This looks beautiful!! How can i play other mods now?! they all look so bland in comparison!
I was wondering in the main file, what other mods are used, i see a Shoker mod in the texture folders, and i LOVE the different armours. Could you list what mods are added to the main mod download?
You gotta problem with my music...WELL HAVE YA! lol. joking, well there is an easy way and a hard way. The hard way i don't know about because it involves editing txt files and such.
The easy way however is just get the mp3 or wav. file you want to use, and call it TLD_Town_Gondor or something like that, the music is in the music folder, you'll find the one. replace and it should work. this way you don't have to edit anything.
A warning though, the M&B engine can only handle so much music, and of certain quality (hence why we have low quality version) it seems to cause some folks no end of headaches. one of the many limitations the guys had to work around.
(feelings hurt) Pagan ;)
A podcast is not an actual video, it is an audio recording of one of the Devs, Merlkir, talking about what is happening with the mod behind the scenes.
Ladies and gents
for the latest on the patch please visit this thread at TLD's home.
That is an unfinished quest, ATM, something will be done with it however in upcomming releases.
Congrats on 2nd place guys, seems Middle-earth had a very good showing this year. I still think there should be different categories, but, thems the breaks as they say.
nope, try again. But ill give a big clue. Its called 'the river song'
thanks all for comments.
This music will be ingame upon inital public beta. Unfortunatly the official sountrack will not be ready till christmas time.
And no it is not other peoples music, but rather my own, created about a year ago. Unlike the synths used for these tracks, the official sountrack will have about 95% real samples. My studio is alot bigger these days, so why not give TLD the best i can.
I hope it adds to the enjoyment of the wonderful project the dev team have laboured long snd hard over.
thank you for your comments on my voice work, kasabian.
The word, i believe, was 'swarth' from the paper i read from. and perhaps for fear of pops or hiss' i was forced to pronounce certain words differently to how i would natural. And without the english accent, of course.
Perhaps it is best if you play with volume off as you will hear my 'dire' voice many times in game. Regretfully when the dev team called for narration specialists only two such armchair professionals came forward. Good on them. The team went with my little effort for better or worse, there were things more important to the actual game to worry about.
So please feel free to enjoy the mod we laboured over upon release, and don't be shy to spare any insults when you do.
