Collecting your questions on campaign map development.

Posted by on

Hey guys, as you could've noticed, we're making some of the campaign development progress publicly available for everyone of you.

It seems that this part of development is especially interesting for you and because of that we decided to create this article, in order to collect your questions on the campaign and answer all of the questions in a special Q&A video.

Please, leave your questions in comments section under this article. You're given a week to ask your questions and after that time we'll release the video.

How will you do to create your own software to code the AI on the campaign ?
How long will it take ?
How many are you in the team ?
Why don't you want us to support you with a patreon ?

By the way, super great job guys ! I'm looking forward to the full release :)

I could probably answer the patreon question. The rights owners for lord of the rings are big against money making off their IPS. I remember that skyrim mod that had a cease order. I’m guessing they are trying to avoid the same thing.

I know the AI path-finding is not working currently, but are there any other known limitations or problems with making a campaign map? Such as map size, or region count, or topology?

I am very excited about this map development, as maps in Tolkien are so critical. Will this be a project that creates an over-all map or modified battle maps or a combination of both?
Atilla, is my favorite Total War but it is getting older every day; Is this tool exclusively an Attila project or will this map editing tool be able to be developed into something that can be used with other more modern Total War titles?

Which tools are you using to decode the campaign-map binary files? The old esf2xml by taw is one of them?
