This total-conversion mod takes the Battle for Middle-earth II to the Fifth Century BCE, replacing the original content with two new, fully-fledged factions: Sparta and Athens. Completely new content, strategies and more awaits you. This project is brought to you by Kwen, Matias, Lauri, njm1983, Glaeken and Mike who are hosted at the3rdage.net, a division of revora.net.

Post news Report RSS Mappers Wanted!

Let's map Greece! The mod is in need of quality, original maps, and this is your chance to help out.

Posted by on

That's right, we're looking for mappers. If you've got some decent working experience with maps, and are interested in helping us out in charting out Greece, feel free to post in here or drop me a PM - or even contact me on MSN for details. I only ask that you please include proof of your work - images, links, what have you.

We're currently wanting maps on the following locations: Achaea, Corinthia, Laconia and Messenia. Please do proper research when working on your maps; as with everything else in The Peloponnesian Wars, accuracy is one of our highest priorities.

Let it begin!

PS; we reserve the right to edit your maps to include custom objects to increase the feeling of immersion.

PPS; did I mention that those who make the cut will get access to the current alpha and further inside updates?

Mappers may also take this time as an opportunity to apply as a fulltime mapper, by the way.

I'd apply, but the BfMEII map editor has to be the worst, least intuitive, map editor I have ever tried working with. :(

It's a frustrating tool, but powerful if you know how to wield it. Myself, I do not. :P

I would like to help you, but I have enough to do with mapping for my own mod and a lot of stress in RL^^
Perhaps in the summer holidays, but I can't give you a guarantee.

PS: Perhaps you should also post your ad here: forum.modding-union.com/index.php/board,218.0.html
The German Bfme-modding community is still very active, so you might find a few good mappers there (most of them understand English, but I could translate it, if you want)

Keep up your great work

Thanks for the offer! If you wouldn't mind, could I write up something for you to translate and send their way? Any help would be appreciated.

Your mod looks great and it would be an honour for me to help.

Hey there, I could be interested (got a lot of spare time on my hands at the moment).

I'm decent with the BFME2 Worldbuilder, if you could send me some of the custom objects you mentioned somehow I would be interested in taking a look for you, and maybe playing around with some maps.

However, I would be unable to do anything major with the AI or scripting (coding just goes straight over my head).

And one final thing, maybe some maps such as Thermopylae..?

Um, I'm sorry to do this, but I've just read on and taken a look at the other pages of the mod, and I hadn't quite realised the scope of this project, and with that considered I'm not suitable for this type of project. Sorry for any inconvenience, if any

Hey man, while I appreciate humility I'd prefer to be the judge of whether or not your material is up to par for this project ;) If you could PM me some images of your work, I'd like to give them a look.

Having a lack of knowledge with AI or scripting is fine, we have people for that.

If you still aren't confident in your ability to help, though, I fully understand! Thanks for showing an interest and supporting the project.
