Hello friends and followers

In the first paragraph I want to clarify that this is not about a new release, for those of you that believed that, I'm sorry. Rather this is about the fact that the mod is again active and that work has been resumed on it.

I know that the mod had a lack of updates, for those that know, I said some time ago that the mod is on hold while I fix some things. Well those things took a very long time (longer that I anticipated). In short most of my life has been turned around (new job, finished faculty, health problems, social stuff, fixed my car (haha), and many other I can't recall now) and that cost me a lot of time. However I'm still determined to see thing through and that's I'm going to do.

I now officially announce that RC MOD is again active.

To celebrate this I want to show you what I have been doing in the late 3-4 months in my very little spare time. The actual process tho began a very long time ago, about 1 year ago when I was thinking about the Mirkwood Elves and how are they as culture. So Just 4 months ago I had time to get those ideas out of my head and implement them visually and to be honest... I'm very proud and I think this is one of the few times that my thoughts and my results are almost the same.

I wanted to push this even further but the fact that I have little time and that I'm working pretty much alone (so I need to focus on coding and visuals) I started making compromises and some art is not as awesome as I initially thought. However I think I covered many of my ideas and I really hope you like them.

Also I felt a glimpse of hope when Ridder Blauw(RB) decided that he would help me in this struggle. So he started doing stuff, so I guess now we are a bit faster.

Expect many things to change to the mod from our older plan since the team is not the same and we might need to cut some stuff out (we will announce it in due time).

So here is a preview of what to expect from the Mirkwood buildings and also from a Mikrwood Skirmish map. This an alpha preview as we haven't managed to polish stuff and add a lot but just to get a taste. I plan to do a lot of stuff I never done in BFME, fresh things and deliver a "complete" release.


However the fate of the mod is a bit uncertain and I guess a lot will depends on the feedback of the next release. At the current state this might be the last release with a new faction, the others might be fix patches or bringing stuff from V2.00 back. But if things go well I might continue.

On another note I need 1-2 fairly active BFME players for a private beta-test so I can test things out and maybe give feedback on things so I can improve the release. If you think you can help in this don't hesitate to PM here or on Revora or even on Facebook.

This is all for now, I might post some renders with the stuff we already did and maybe try to post something weekly (no promises here). Don't forget to tell us your feedback and follow us here or on Facebook.

Take care,
NewErr

I can test the mode. If you will. I've been waiting for months to go out.

Excellent news,excellent news indeed! Might want to be a little more specific about what kind of feedback you're looking for though, super pro players will not have the same opinions as those who play casually. Multiplayer or vs AI will also yield different results.
Once again, best of luck!

In the end it does not matter as long as he care for the mod itself. Any feedback is good, may it be too light or too extreme. :D

Hello, very good news!
I am personally an active player (French). But to give feedback, we should play often mod. Unfortunately for my team, it does not work in multiplayer with cracked versions. And none of us want to redeem CD version we had in being younger (normal, you do not find?).

In short, if something cool could be brought, it would be a multiplayer feature with the "" "" illegal "" "" versions.

Good news despite everything, even if it will be just for solo in our case :)

Thanks and good luck !
