[OSP] InVain's TLD Scene Pack

Just as TLD, this package is an LSP, so you're free to change, re-upload or incorporate it into other mods. You're not allowed to use it in a commercial project! Please give me some credit. :)
Keep in mind that you'll need most if not all of the TLD scene props to use these scenes. In the package, I only included those props added or modified by me.

Please be also aware that some scenes are far bigger than their original counterparts. They will all take some time to load and may or may not cause lag on older machines, although I tried to skimp on particle effects like smoke. For comparison: I have an Intel i5 4570 and a Radeon R9 270X and all
scenes run fine.

Credits
The original and current TLD team for creating and keeping alive this great mod.
Gutekfiutek for some textures I recklessly stole from his great Polished Buildings pack
Ruthven for some water particle effects which I did not yet manage to get to work properly |-)

Installation

If you've manually downloaded and installed TLD

  • Go to mod's directory. It is inside the "modules" subfolder within Warband's main directory.
  • Create a backup!
  • Unpack the scene pack's zip file into your TLD directory. It should ask if you want to overwrite existing files, allow that.
  • After applying a Nightly Patch, reinstall the submod over it. Please be aware that I only update the submod for new Steam Workshop versions, so any scenes changed by the Nightly Patches might be buggy.


If you've downloaded TLD via Steam Workshop

  • Go to the mod's directory. It should be here: \Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\48700\299974223
  • Create a backup!
  • Unpack the scene pack's zip file into your TLD directory. It should ask if you want to overwrite existing files, allow that.
  • Updating your mod via Steam Workshop might cause problems if the new version changes certain files (see above). If that happens, check if I've already released a compatible version of the scene pack. Usually, this happens within a few days.


If you want to use the scene pack in combination with another submod

  • The best and safest way to incorporate this pack into another submod is by using the module system!
  • Most submods that I know of do not change the same files as the scene pack: module.ini, scenes.txt, scene_props.txt, flora_kinds (in the "/Data" subfolder). However, the scene pack also uses some assets that have only recently been added to vanilla TLD. If your submod is based on an older version of TLD, you need to manually add these assets:
  • Create a backup of your mod first!
  • Download the latest version of TLD: Tldmod.github.io
  • Copy all BRF files from the "/Resource" subfolder that your mod is missing. That's most importantly all files starting with "iv_"
  • Do the same for all textures in "/Textures" associated with these BRF files, again, that's mainly those starting with "iv_". Use the programm "OpenBRF" to check which textures are referenced in the BRF files.
  • Compare your mod's module.ini with the one from my scene pack and add all load_mod_resource entries that are missing. That should be it.
  • If your submod changes the .txt files specified above, you need to know how to mod Warband via text editing or via the module system (only works if you have the submod's source files). The scene pack's source files are included in the zip file.
  • I do not grant any support if you've installed the scene pack along with another submod! Before asking for help, make sure that any problems you encounter also happen if using the scene pack with vanilla TLD!

I've decided to let this scene pack drop out ouf support and merge some of the remaining scenes with the main mod.
Files will still be accessible for those who know how to use them.

To people wondering about updates: I update this pack whenever a new TLD Steam update makes the scene pack incompatible (by changing scene related files).

If I don't update the submod, chances are it's still compatible.

I love your version of Minas Ithil.

While the TLD one was not bad by any means, it didn't at all show that this city was indeed the sister city, and a city of as great splendor, as Minas Tirith. Yours does that amazingly.

Thanks!
I assume you're the person from the TW thread, so you'd know, but for any passers-by: This pack's Minas Morgul has already been included in vanilla TLD.
