Well it shows more respect to RA's creativity and displays more originality.

Fair enough :xd:

The old world will burn in the fires of industry! The forests will fall! A new order will rise...we will drive the machine of war with the sword and the spear and the iron fist of the Orc! We have only to remove those who oppose us...

My thoughts too.
Does anyone know any good sources for the Black Speech?.
It will help name the unnamed Orc and Troll Heroes.
I want to give the Troll a name because Mordor Troll Hero is too much to type all the time :xd:

A quick search gave me this: Link

Don't know how true that is to what Tolkien wrote though.

thanks zimoo.
It's a pity that Tolkien didn't go into some of these a little more but I guess he didn't like the language.

I was thinking of the name Olog Mautor (Troll Lieutenent)for the Troll Hero.
Horngaz for the Cave Troll Hero (pet)

The new flash browser is up and running and the missing renders have been posted up.
check out the Lone Wolf browser here.

this is the first test so tell me what you think (it's also the first flash i've used in web design).

I like it, and it's nice to see information given about the purposes of the units. I generally prefer reading descriptions to seeing renders :p

over the coming weeks the information will be expanded each unit will be given a small blurb the first I have updated with this is the Shire Units.
Some info I forgot to put in before -

The Shire has been changed a bit lately i'm looking at making the Camps and Castles different the Camp will resemble the Shire (Hobbiton mostly) and the Castle will resemble Bree (complete with walls) and thirdly the Outpost will be like a Dunedain hideout.Each will have a different Citadel.
Camp - Party Tree
Castle - Prancing Pony
Outpost - Ruined Arnor Tower.
Butturbur will be added and will be built either from the Bree Tavern or Prancing Pony.
Bilbo will be added (just decided that now) he'll be built from the Party Tree and supports the Hobbits)
and Halbarad will be built from the Ruined Arnor Tower.
The Shire will play very different then the other factions.
The Shire has been the hardest faction to create (which it is barely even 1/2 done) but I think all the work will pay off.
The Shire will be a very unique faction based on stealthy sneak attacks
(even greater the Green Elves faction).
The Shire will have a large array of Heroes available ranging from the Hobbits to Gandalf and Tom Bombadil to Halbarad and Goldberry giving the Shire great diversity.

Excuse my saying so, but I find those comments to be very rude. Only fickle people lose interest in something because it takes to long. You expect coming in here and telling Radspakr to work harder and that it's "retarded" that it's taking a long time is going to make him speed up?

Do you have any idea how difficult modding in ONE new faction is let alone many?

The old world will burn in the fires of industry! The forests will fall! A new order will rise...we will drive the machine of war with the sword and the spear and the iron fist of the Orc! We have only to remove those who oppose us...

not much of one though :)
I guess impatient people are part of the job for modders I think while we get annoyed at them we really don't care :p

Lone Wolf has consumed the bulk of my life for around 14 months now i'm a student now days and i'm learning lots of new things (Flash,PHP etc... so I don't have the time I once did).
But work is still being done.I'm sure that I will get it released by July maybe a beta though.
(almost in June already)
My real hope is that my mod will be released before RA that is one mod I don't want to compete with.

Hay thats retarded.... this game is taking to long to come out man

Mod not game.
and Hay isn't retarded at least Cows don't think so

yes indeed, but even if it isnt your mod is still unique as your adding so many factions, i didnt know the game engine could hold so many

I don't know what the limit would be for factions.
I imagine that it would be be pretty high.But since every faction needs an upgrade I guess the limit would be up until you run out of upgrades.

I'm adding another new unit to the Shire.
Rock throwers they look like the Hobbit Farmers.

I have remade Dain.
He will no longer gat the Armor upgrade or the random colours.
He'll look a tougher and more royal.
Dain will also have really good armor.
