Welcome to the first of the weekly (hopefully) updates. I thought I'd try to do update topics to show the progress of the mod to those who don't follow it so closely.

So here are some items done this past week or so:

1) I've begun re-mapping EA's Evil Men buildings so I can adjust them and do my own animations and more for them. This week I've done two along with build-up animations:

- Easterling Battle Tower - http://rjrotwk.the3r...wer_buildup.wmv
- Harad Farm - http://rjrotwk.the3r.../harad_farm.wmv

2) Rohan added to War of the Ring:

Barracks (Based on TEA's barracks model):

3) I've re-reworked Rohan's buildable walls. (Fingulfin's walls used as the base) Also, I've added Flameguard's walls for Mordor. I've also begun work on their build-up animations and such:

Rohan Walls:

Mordor Walls:

4) I've re-worked almost all of the trolls to re-enable their walking animations of BFME1. (Including all of the transition states for each weaponstate etc.) Below is a quick example of the trolls walking and charging:



5) Lastly, here are a couple of quick videos showing off the camera system (enhanced version of Morgoth's Minas Tirith map and Four Ages).

I hope you all enjoy!

And no matter how many times I see it, I'm still in love with that camera angle. :)

Are you sure the AI will know how to control it right? It seems we're getting 4 armies for WotR after all? : (

Good job with all :rolleyes:
It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP
