Hi all!

Note: All names mentioned in this article refer to the names of people on Rise of Mordor's official Discord server.

Welcome to the September 2019 development log! Sorry for the late report folks; I finally found some spare moments to write up what's been done this month. Unlike the last logs, this month has been quiet - but don't worry! Even quite months have their importance in the mod's development.


I think it's fair to say the last two months were loaded with modelling gems. This month, modelling news mainly consists of those models being put together; Megablueiron has pushed on and combined his armour pieces into their single unit - the Morgul Legion - and fuzzyhdog has been hard at work on making his complete Iron Hills armour.

But what's this!? We've also got a new shield for our Tier 2 Orc Warriors, made by Spava Krishna, and, from the depths of modding, a wild Caligula appeared in the bushes, bringing with him some fancy new wolf models for Dunland's roster.

It's been an extremely quiet month in our animation department, with Lol_What3 being our only current animator and one of our only mappers*.

Fortunately, some great progress has been made on mapping. Three new maps are now complete: Brethamir; a map based in Cardolan, Fennas Gondren; a Dorwinion fortress, and Road to Gundabad; a map based in, well... you can guess.

A nice chunk of audio was processed this month, with ~900 files being processed. Remember - if you think you have the time, you can help us!

The new User Interface (UI) being developed for Rohan by TheQuez has been in continued development this month. See below for what's been done this month:

So that's it! Again, not much to show this month, but at least it's something. I hope you are pleased with how things are coming along, and be sure to ask us any questions you may have - either on our Discord server on in this article's comments section!
