We have some updates for you, concerning the 0.2.6 release for Oblivion and concerning the Skyrim port.
I'll start with the Skyrim port:

So far everything is looking good. The Creation Kit (the tool with which we develop most of the game content) is set to be released in January, but we already had the chance to analyse a lot of the engine, and we like what we see. We are also very glad that a lot of third party tools that we require are being developed, some even have had their first releases already! The team is very motivated to start working on Skyrim-MERP.

Here is a video of the Misty Mountains in the new heightmap that I'm developing for Skyrim-MERP, with some quick temporary textures applied:



The 0.2.6 Oblivion-MERP release is coming a long nicely, and it won't be too long before it goes public! We are in the very last stages. We need to implement some more NPC voices for a few quests, so if you'd like to help out with that (you need a decent microphone and master the English language fairly well), head over to the MERP forums and let us now you're interested.

We also have some new pictures to show you:

I hope you enjoyed this small update. You'll hear more from of us soon enough!

Yes, nothing major, but some nice quests to show that we actually CAN do them, hehe. We have too much of a reputation of "awesome landscapes, no playable content" right now.

Btw, what do you do with your body when playing MERP...?

The community is always here to volunteer voice acting! I'd love to see a mod where almost every NPC was played be a different actor!

The final version will have two main quest lines. One as the Ringbearer, the other helping out the White Council all over Middle Earth.

Well we're well prepared to start strong as soon as the CK is released, but it'll still take a few years. But worry not, we have a strong and dedicated team which is only getting stronger ;)

it looks good so far. i've another question concerning "porting to skyrim". will you change the fighting-system? afaik this was one of your main ideas for oblivion. But I really love the fighting-system of skyrim :)

We'll definately try to improve it(animations, damage system, etc) but we'll have to take a look at the CK first to find out what we'll be able to change ;)
