Post news RSS Major changes for Beta 0.999

Some big changes coming for Beta 0.999. A small competition to decide the new name for the project. A side project for coders out there.

Posted by on

During the course of testing out Beta 0.37, Private Beta 0.9 and my current version of Beta 0.999 I've come to the conclusion that there's no way I can release an updated version of the old build and have it work smoothly or be at my newer standards.
The old build was rough and incomplete since I learned as I worked things were left half done, ideas dropped and loose ends everywhere.
The clean up alone is a massive task which is why originally restarted the mod with LWR and I got reminded of that.
So instead I'm making some big changes to the project condensing things down and releasing a streamlined release.
The factions are being changed and condensed superfluous content removed, factions merged the new shape of this project more closely resembles my original vision for Lone Wolf with some touches of LWR.
These will be new tech tree using existing assets with some LWR stuff where needed.

Updated Factions:
Rohan
Gondor
Isengard
Mordor
Eriador
Rhovanion
Lorien
Rivendell
Evil Men
The Deep
Dol Guldur

Morgul elements have been merged in with Mordor.
Dunland elements in with Isengard.
Eriador is a hybrid faction of units from the Shire, Breelands, Arnor and Forochel.
Rhovanion is a hybrid faction of units from Mirkwood, Erebor, Rhovanion and Dale.
Evil Men is a hybrid faction of units from Harad and Rhun.

This is all subject to change as I'm still working on the updated tech trees but I'll release them when possible.

With this rather major change comes the need for a new name for this project.
Instead of using Beta 0.999 which it technically no longer is I'll need a new title for it.
Just like the Resurrection project for Lone Wolf has it's 3 titles Return of Shadow, Return of Dawn and Age of Numenor.
So if you have an idea for the new title for this release like the facebook page and reply to the status with your suggestion.
Winning name will get a mystery prize.

Thirdly I'm also looking to start a little side project for BFME2 a simple mod with the Men of the West Faction split into Gondor and Rohan.
I'll donate some of my LWR assets to the project so if you are a coder looking for a start let me know.
