Ladies and gentlemen, may I present;
Posted Image
What this means is that there is a new mod under production, The Hobbit, there and back again for BFME2.
What started small, only worked randomly has become a full scale improving existing factions. Like people wouldnt propably expect, only these factions are present in The Hobbit modification
-Men of the West
-Elves
-Dwarves
-Goblins
-Mordor
-Isengard
But being as true as possible to the book, Isengard may have to get replaced later on.

FAQ
Q: Will the Hobbit mod have a hobbits faction?
A: No, this is something that this The Hobbit mod wont have=no new factions. Will be just many cool things added to the existing factions but as Isengard wasnt evil at the time of The Hobbit, you might just see Hobbit or Dunedain faction :p Or then Dol Guldur to balance the evil factions out but Dunedain/Hobbit faction would be cool.

Q: Will the Hobbit mod have a dunedain faction?
A: See the first question.

Q: Will the Hobbit mod have a campaign ?
A: At some point I would really like to have this :omg: But skirmish comes first obviously

Q: Will the Hobbit mod have a bunch of hobbit heroes with cool powers?
A: Bilbo is hero for dwarves because he was pretty much the only hobbit shown in The Hobbit

Q: Will the Hobbit mod have new hobbit units?
A: I think that this is most likely to happen but they wont be for factions, will come from INN and other places

Q: Will the Hobbit mod have reskins ?
A: You will see many reskins for dwarves and goblins. Keep your eyes open for new models too :good:

Q: Will the Hobbit mod be having single unit system that is planned for Last Alliance ?
A: At the end it might happen but as it takes alot time to perfect, I will propably finish all the material and all coding, then do the conversion ^_^

Q: Will Smaug be featured ?
A: Yes, naturally. I have some ideas on how to actually put him in but he will be featured.

Q:Will Erebor be reworked ?
A:I think that the one right now is pretty lowsy version so yes at some point.

Several in-game screenies

That is just little preview of whats coming :good: Keep your ears, eyes and computers open so you can check all the latest info of The Hobbit mod.
So now Im sure that almost all of you have some burning questions, lets hear them. Actually I would be more than happy to answer any questions members might have :)
Drop this into your sig if like what you see :D

So then this mod will be about the Dwarves, Mirkwood Elves, Orcs, and Men of Dale. I am getting this from the movie.

-Men of Dale
-Mirkwood Elves
-Dwarves
-Mount Gundabad
-Dol Guldor
-(Hobbit & Dunedain)

Check the first post, it says

-Men of the West
-Elves
-Dwarves
-Goblins
-Mordor
-Isengard
But being as true as possible to the book, Isengard may have to get replaced later on

Cool stuff, and finally a mod based on The Hobbit in the works!

Mordor will prob. be renamed to Dol Guldur?
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

My bet is that this mod will start as a small thing, but it will end up as being a big mod that features factions like Mirkwood and Esgaroth :) Anyway, the screens look superb :D

Nope because it wouldnt be cool if I wouldnt make many new things for it.

:) Nah I think that we have had small convos like this is MSN and I will be avoiding adding factions so there wont be any faction changes other than possible Isengard changing.

Too bad... But this mod will certainly be unique, and different from WoA's Quest for Erebor thing...
