Great job, Rob! This mod will be at the top of my agenda to download and play. I've always loved the Battle of Helm's Deep, especially from the BFME I Campaign. I'm glad that somebody has taken time to make an in depth, fully scripted version of this epic scene. Being an aspiring mapper, I was just wondering how you made the glittering cave section, and how you made a mini door through the arcade into it. Also, for the secret passage that Aragorn and Gimli used, will they just walk around, or actually use the little doors it the wall? Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you for the interest!
The images you currently see for the map are a little bit outdated and I plan to start re-doing many parts of the map to make it better. For the glittering caves, I expanded the map behind the arcade and added a throne room, some other small rooms, and the glittering caves. I'm going to redecorate these areas and add many custom models/skins to it. Right now, for the arcade, I used a postern gate object to walk from the outside of the arcade to the inside. Again, this will be re-done and I will be adding opening/closing doors instead. Finally, for the secret passage, I'm again using postern gates to have them reach the causeway. I may make something where Gimli and Aragorn jump to the causeway but that may not be very practical or possible so we'll see. Feel free to ask any other questions you have about the map or mod in general.
Hehe... gotta love elvish magic
