It is an amber hue due to it being dusk. There is a green aura that is only visible closer up and when it's darker atmospherically.

For the record though, I've been working on my own esps and have changed things up quite a bit to help portray mainstream LotR...

Well, if you're familiar with ME and this UI, you'll see that it's much less than 1/4 of what's typically shown. It's really big, the max. in fact!

MERP is essentially 7 times the size. ;)

Thanks, clarity should be very good, regardless of no ambient lights. I actually added the campfire to increase visibility and it's a clear night with a partial Moon too!

I'll check the image on a 3'rd party pc tomorrow, it's supposed to be very dark because its 2AM, but all details are entirely visible to me. Anyone else? This would mean all my images are inherently dark and this is not good.

There won't be a fast travel option like TES4 in the future, so waypoints are highly unlikely. We're focusing on realism and jumping around in our game just isn't appropriate.

I think your rig is good to go but you wont need hardly any of your mods for MERP though. Just disable them and keep your environmental ones to make things look nicer than the vanilla TES4 resources. Have you tried any of the fps boosters? As I mentioned in an earlier post my rig is just a laptop with only a 9600M GT and with a ton of resource hog mods and I get decent (25 fps) at all max settings except in the un-optimized, at this time, most demanding areas such as Mirkwood (which is awesome).

Howdy,

I'm playing on a new laptop with a Core 2 Duo P6600 with 4Gigs RAM and a 9600M GT(512MB). There are a bunch of easy to install mods that drastically improve the graphics and FPS. Doing a half dozen or so ini changes really helps too! I can actually run at MAX settings with HDR even in the most demanding areas at around 15 or so FPS. Not exactly great but I can always turn of things like all the shadows, grasses and LOD and get 25+:these areas have not been optimized yet either. For the record my game content has ALOT of extra/demanding textures.

Hi,

These are two examples of five available colourations of the the Ithilien Ranger armors by Kelen_Stardragon.

I personally added some variables such as different hooded cloaks versus the 3 different capes and some black boots on the female.

The armor pieces you're concerned about do have said embellishments and the colouration 'issue' is a matter of opinion as TINTFM. :)

Just a little fyi, the reference images you linked were used as reference in the creation of this set.

Scale armor is far more common than (chain) mail as it's inherently very easier to fabricate, by design.

I've actually made my own personal set of armor, better than both by far.
