A new power is rising. Its victory is at hand. This night the land will be stained with the blood of Rohan. March to Helm's Deep. Leave none alive. To war!

Holy mother of God, I can really now imagine standing on top of those walls with my fellow archers and murdering some uruk-hai. Are you guys going to try and implement the ladders from the films, and I was wondering if you are going to somehow make the wall blow up when the uruk-hai torchbearers get to it.

if they follow the book,no wall will explode..in the book the wall was already breached,and somewhere outside the forteress were some barricades,bastions or something like this were some archers went to release arrows at the enemy army,and after they retreated in the forteress and reported to Theoden,i think,but im not 100% sure of this:D

I hope the glittering caves are going to be included at the back of the deep (thats probably a mod unto itself).
I do like that the deep is somewhat more extensive than the one in the movie. The film one wasn't really a deeping vale with a stream at all, which gave the impression they didn't read the book properly or know what it was. This looks somewhat more like it should. Maybe aught to open out a bit more behind and lead off to the left towards the caves. Gives a bit more space for a mountain stream and its tributries and all the rest to explore.
Don't forget the deeping road.

When designing this part of the heightmap I paid a lot of attention to the drawings in the Atlas of Middle Earth. It is still significantly different, simply because of the scale difference between the heightmap and our points of interest. The model of Helms Deep is probably somewhere around a scale of 1:3, while the heightmap is 1:90 compared to the "real" deal. Because of that the heightmap around points of interests need to be adjusted, significantly.

Oh and yes, the Glittering Caves will be in the back.

Yeah I like your improvements, I realise there are limitations to what can be done.
It definitely would be out of shot here but I wonder if you plan on including Helm's Dike. I believe it to be a part natural dike (geological) that was augmented by the Gondorians and the Rohirrim. Was irregular in hight up to 20 feet and a cliff to one side spanning the Deeping Coomb.
I like your work, even if I'm not always a fan of the movies. Great work.

Yes, Helms Dike is included (it is just a little under the bottom line of this screenshot), but due to the scale difference between points of interest and the heightmap it's not much bigger in width than the Deeping Wall. In the lore Helms Dike is faaar wider, which is the reason why the outnumbered Rohirrim didn't man it when Isengard attacked.

I wonder what it'd be like if the graphics were eventually enhanced.. Even though it's just overwhelming in epicness as it is. I'm ready to put my warrior outfit on and SO READY TO SPEAR SOME URUKS IN THE FACE.

ahh and.. you said it's not finished.
so no offence, just my 2 cents:
maybe the mountains are a little bit to glaring white and the transition between grassland and mountain stone a bit too harsh? and a bit gravel and stone round the fortress.

but nevertheless awesome in all aspects!

It's really good but I thought it was more surrounded by rocky terrain rather than grass, and the mountains on the side should be steeper

Oh, One more question, The textures will be more detailed in the official product, Right? I mean, Not the difference in the texture, but in the detail level specifically. This could be because it's a longshot angle though.

Also, Bonus question, Will there be updates on the graphics level throughout the years? even after the game is ultimately released?, Like HD texture packs and whatnot?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

The textures seen on the ground here are world map textures, not the actual textures. The fortress textures are quite high res, I assure you ;).

As for graphical updates, all our textures are going to be HD, around the quality of Quarl's Texture Pack for Oblivion and Vurt's Skyrim Overhaul for Skyrim. Also, we have permission to use Vurt's resources as a part of MERP itself. On top of that, the way MERP is installed using Mod Organizer makes it so that any HD texture pack applied to vanilla Skyrim will also be applied to vanilla Skyrim textures in MERP. So graphical updates will mostly take care of themselves ;)
