Well, it has been a while since the last news release, but that does not mean that there has been no progress. This update is filled with a lot of stuff for you to look through and see how the mod is developing.

1) Rhun Armory - Rhun now has their own building:
Screens: 1 2 3 Build-Up Animation

2) Arnor Buildings. A lot of progress has been made to change Arnor to their own unique faction. When I add buildings to RJ-RotWK I got for the full effect - build-ups, level-ups and such.

Arnor Armory Screens: 1 2 3 4 5 6 Build-Up Animation

Arnor Barracks Screens: 1 2 3 Build-Up Animation

Arnor Tower Screens: 1 2 Build-Up Animation

Dunedain Ranger Camp Screen: 1 2 3 4 5 Build-Up Animation

3) ElrondHighLord has provided many new skins for the units I've been working on. (More than I can keep up with.) Here are two of them, for Elladan and Elrohir. While the twins will not be heroes for the Elven faction, they will be featured in a number of areas of the mod. Hopefully next update I'll be able to highlight more of the models.
Screens: 1 2

4) More skies have been added to a number of maps. Here are some high resolution screenshots reflecting the maps:
Dol Guldur Screens: 1 2 3 4
Minas Tirith screens: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Grey Havens screens: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Lastly, Nazgul from SEE has provided me permisison to use his Black Gate sky. I took the opportunity to take a bunch of screens to show off his great work in a mini-battle.
Black Gate screens: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21

A number of these have been made into wallpapers of varrying sizes to be used for your desktop along with a number of other screens from RJ:

Last note, I hope to have the next public release in the next 1-2 weeks. It's not the finalin the 1.05 series but there is a LOT of new content, bug fixes, maps, build-plot test map and more. Look for it as an early Christmas present.

Thank you for playing,
Robert J.

Man, the people on this team are amazing. The skies, the unit skins, the build-ups...you changed the animations! Awesome. That's the only word I can use to describe it. I'm totally looking forward to this and I'm considering this one of my Christmas presents. XD I hope this one dosen't end like other mods I've looked forward too so much and bottom out...

'The Twilight of Man is nigh, and coming ever closer. The days have shortened into cold, forlorn darkness and sunrise to sundown is a bitter struggle for survival. But do not think for a moment that we shall not fight. We shall not go quietly into the dusk. We shall not throw down arms and flee, or surrender. We will go on, we will not falter. And even should we die, we shall make an end that will be remembered for thousands of years. For beautiful Arnor that is, for glorious Númenor that was! We are the Dúnedain, we are the Men of the North, and our foes will remember our steel!'

Great, I've been waiting for the next public release. I'll have to get a fan before then or face devastation being unable to play it. The fan is a bit of an issue 'cause I can't drive and I have to go 15 miles to the nearest store that will have one...

...a fan? You mean, like, a computer fan? I'd just find a household fan around somewhere and use it to cool off your PC. That's what I do with my Xbox 360, because it works better then the coolers you can buy. Same with a comp. I've done it before, with a laptop and with a normal bigger comp. No problems. Of course, the in-computer-fan is better because it's not external...it'd work alot better if you took the shell off of it and had the air blowing directly into the main body of the computer. Other then that, your best bet will be to order it online if you can't get a ride to Best Buy or Circuit City.

Yeah, I need a household fan, we don't have one. And as it's not my computer and I already screwed it up once, it is probably not best idea to take it apart or buy accessories. But there aren't any stores where I can buy a fan in the town I live in, so I need a ride into the state capital to go to Target or something.

You don't take the computer apart in the sense that you go in and remove pieces of it, only the outside shell of the main CPU unit itself. It's easily slid off, only done to expose the inner-workings of the computer itself. You don't affect anything inside, just don't let anything GET inside when the computer is exposed like that. And don't reach in it when it's plugged up either. But yeah, if you don't have the shell off of the computer, then the fan won't do any good. You've got to have it blowing on exposed areas of the computer. Otherwise, you should be good to go.

first of all welcome here!

second, that is the latest public beta. there is a private beta currently, but it is only for beta testers and the team to put stuff in and find bugs or errors. everything you see after sept 10 is currently only in the private beta. however, there will be a new public beta really soon, and it will rock :p

In fact the super screens. :p
You believe that there will be the next release before Christmas or not, it will be too genial because your super mod is a set share some beug but otherwise it is cool.
In fact es que je peut etre beta tester because at this moment I am the Lord of the Rings and I spend my life on it, and I love to look for beugs.
If you want Voila c is not okay. Of those good at the end of the afternoon. :p
Sincerely and amicably predators83

My god! This is just gorgeous! Amazing good work! I love the new Arnor buildings, and the new skies OWN, especially Minas Tirith and Black Gate.

One question: can you reduce the radius of doodad/destructible-removal when a structure is built?

if you want to add something to one of your posts, there is an edit button.

beta testing is pretty much closed, but sometimes there will be a screenshot or video contest that you can use to get in. i dont know about the release, because rob wants the next public version to be fully bug free and balanced so he can start having tournaments.
