It's finally here, the 0.2.6 beta release of MERP for Oblivion! Almost all of the landscapes of Middle Earth are finished, we hope you will have fun exploring them. Note that we haven't included any quests in this release. Due to the preparations for the port to Skyrim the team has been spread too thin lately to achieve (in the limited amount of time we had left after the repairs) the quest quality we aim for, and thus we decided not to include them at all. There still is a lot of new content to explore though!
The installation files and instructions can be found at the following locations:
If you use the torrent, we'd appreciate it if you could at least seed until a 1.0 download/upload ratio has been achieved.
MERP now has a Facebook page, feel free to join!
Alasdairhurst created several MERP themed screensavers:
A 0.2.6 trailer is being made, we didn't want to delay the release just for the trailer.
The Creation Kit for Skyrim is set to be released tomorrow (today for some of us). Once it has been released the team will explore it's features to see if it provides everything MERP needs, and if so we will create a new ModDB page for Skyrim-MERP and provide the link here in a new update. This ModDB page will be kept intact for all Oblivion players.
