Mod of the Year - Question of the Day


Greetings, companions of Edain!


Mod of the Year 2016


The first round of the votings for the Mod of the Year 2016 on Moddb ended and thanks to your support, the Edain Mod reached for the seventh time the Top 100!
This is again a very big achievement and a great honor, so we would like to thank the entire community for this support! This would not have been possible without your votes and we are really proud to have so much fans around here.

Now the second round of the Mod of the Year 2016 begins and we need again your votes for the Top 10! You have to select the Edain Mod from the list of the Top 100 and then click on "Vote". So that your voice counts as much as possible, we ask you to register an account on Moddb or to use your existing account before your voting. Even if we can't reach the Top 10 anymore as we have won last year, we still can get a honourable mention.

You come across to the list of the Top 100 with the following button:

How many makers is in your team?

The Edain Team consists of 11 members:

Ealendril
Ealendril is the leader of the Edain Team.
He is the Coder of Edain and also does models, graphhics, skins and animations. Also there is hardly anything Ealendril isn't able to do.

Lord of Mordor
Lord of Mordor is the one in charge of balance. He does the final descisions after discussing with the rest of the Team and the Balance Testers.
Also Lord of Mordor takes a main part in the development of new concepts.

Symbite
Symbite is the Website Administrator of Modding Union.

Gnomi
Gnomi is a mapper. Also he fixes Map bugs and adjusted most of the Maps for 4.0.

Turin Turumbar
Turin created and maintains the Edain Launcher (or Installer or Switcher).

Reshef

Thorongil03
Thorongil is a modeller and animator. Most of all the new animations in the game are done by him.

FG15
FG15 is a mapper, but does mainly mission maps. He is also in charge of the English version and helps coding.

Furthermore, there are former members of the Edain Team, of which Adamin should definitely should be mentioned, as he also worked on 4.0 as a graphicer and modeller, but due to inactivity he is only an honourable member at the moment.

Apart from the Edain Team itself, there are also many supporters and helpers.

Greetings Edain team, I will just re post my question from the other day.

This is my main question of the day. What RTS's played the biggest inspiration in how you designed the Edain mod in terms of gameplay? (Not counting BFME 1 and 2.)


Also if you don't mind answering this question as well. What RTS in particular does the team consider to be the best overall in terms of gameplay?

What drives you forward in the development?
(In other words: What motivates you to do all of this?)

Anyway, Have a wonderful day Edain Team and I hope to see some more of you in the future :).

I think the biggest motivation is the fun of Modding itself and seeing the modded things implemented and working in the game.
Also, a quite important motivation is the community and all the feedback we get. I doubt that we would still be continuing if it wasn't for the community.
And also trying to make the mod as good as possible is of course also a motivation.

Furthermore, not all things are as motivating as others. Fixing bugs or doing other similar standard things is much less motivating than doing creative work or something completly new. Nonetheless it has to be done, too.

Hi Edain team, I will just re post my question from the other day. ;)

The original game is inspired by the models from Jackson's LOTR, for this reason I love the fact that you have used many models from Jackson's The Hobbit (especially Dain, Thranduil, Kamul and rams).
In this way the game is inspired more to Jakson's Middle Earth. And I like it!!!

MY QUESTION IS: what is your opinion about the six movies by Peter Jackson? What is your favourite movie?

PS: I loved all of them, even The Hobbit (despite some flaws). They are undoubtedly my favorite movies. :)
