Mathijs, I have a lot of mapping to do and BfME I Worldbuilder is a pain to use. I would like to however... and what did you have in mind? =p

 

I am getting back into the swing of texturing, here is twenty minutes of me playing around with the default terrain palettes.

Anything you'd like to do that's somehow related to Gundabad or Eriador. :p

Long time... no siege?

Are those new cliff objects?

Yep and yep. Cliffs like this are a pain and a blessing to use, this map is for Tactics, probably the last one I can make for them given the instability of their Worldbuilder on my computer and the fact that I had to hack into my custom SEE-DC Worldbuilder to create this. =p

 

BfME I has a bad Worldbuilder. I did attempt a 1v1 small Coldfells map but the pathing issues were terrible, that and insta-kills from troll creeps. =p

 

Would a good Coldfells map be acceptable?

I'm going to assume I can use BfME II terrain textures for that. Nevertheless, I want to complete placing the cliffs on my current map before I film some terrain more painting.

More video. =D

I was a bit rusty but got the hang of it a while in.

 

P.S. I watched it myself and recognised the times that I had something unexpected happen and rolled with it. =p

 

And I do not recommend texturing like I did either. It works for the limited palette I have but it is best to paint all and then blend the terrains.

Rivendell video tonight, I'm going to sculpt and texture a mountain.

It will be a mountain of work! Mountaineers rejoice! Landslide of good ideas and techniques.

I sculpt and texture a mountain! The drama is intense as my computer begins to overheat because of this Australian summer.

More videos! This tutorial topic has become a video bonanza! With a glorious computer that I got from the top banner advertisement I can now record in real time with top graphics!

Features in this video:

  • I use terrains that will be available in The Special Extended Edition, Director's Cut Worldbuilder.
  • I research overgrown gardens on the internet.
  • I add ruins that show where the armies of Elendil and the armies of Gil-galad forged their weapons.
  • 38 minutes long, which is the amount of time I spent on Rivendell today.
  • Was recorded in 1080p but uploading it Youtube did something, so all I have left is 360p? That sucks.

 

 

Meanwhile there are two BfME1 maps that I have fixed up, hardly worthy of any attention because one has terrible gameplay and the other is a BfME 2 Ettenmoors rip-off. You might see the Ettenmoors map in the Shadow & Flame mod?
