Those are the Dead marshes in fact. The trees are partially self-made, partially, we used the reach-trees

I especially like those trees! :D Good work MERP-team!
Will you customize the normal grass and bushes, to a more unique look. Not that they are wrong, I'm just curious as we're going to see a lot of these. :P

I do hope there is a hidden path somewhere :P

How deep is the lake (at least so you can drown I mean)? And will you add some script that makes you... not wanting to go in the water :)

It would ruin the feel of the game if you could just waltz across the swamp without anything to stop you.

PhilipeZ Jun 27 2012, 3:32pm replied:

The lake itself isn't that deep because that would not be realistic for a swamp. You'd also not be able to see corpses on the ground if it were deep. However, we will have to create anything that avoids you to go to that waters. Any script will be neccesary as you say, but we have no detailled plan about that yet.

It doesn't technically. But for LOD purposes as well as others, we had to stretch it beyond Rohan's actual borders.

the grass looks slightly not as good as i could be, but the trees and mist are amazing!! and you should make it possible to somehow find maps that would lead you through the dead marshes or we can simply try and load like 100 times:D

They are the dead marshes because of the bodies, not because it is literally dead. Marshes are not full of dead stuff (usually). Marshes tend to look fairly green.

But, idk, shouldn't it be more... like mucky, murky? Something, hmm idk maybe like the water is too normal? Idk what it is but there's just something not there.... The mist maybe? Like would it be possible to make the mist a bit more pale greenish? You know like as if the air was foul and stuff?

The water will be improved - we'll create an individual water type for the marshes. Concerning the greenish fog, I'm not sure whether that wouldn't look to unreal. However, It'd be worth a try.

i agree with you something seems missing/out of place, but it looks so amazing that only a slight improvement is needed, better water would surly help:D and it should (i think) look more mucky

if all else fails try making it look similar to what is in the movie:D also instead of a grass texture for the ground try using a dirt texture and the only grass would be the (3D looking) 2D bushes and shrubs.
