The Jedi Knight Academy modding community tryed to do something like this and it ruined it, one person took all the credit and made a massive mod saying that he made everything. All the good modders then left in distgust, and JKA went down hill really dont do this the more seperate mods there are the better.

i even dont believe hes capable of doing such thing - no offense - just think about it ONE person cant do anything like that even if he gets permisson to use all models, skins, maps, codes, etc etc from other mods. Even if he somehow glued em togather, its would end up as a total crap thing.
just think buddy, how many people are working on RJ, or RA, and theres more other mods.

btw: you would have to be really good at programing to sieze such job succesfully. really good, and have a lot of time

If this whould happen and chould happen (which it most likly wont) here is how I whould do it. First id get permission to use what things i want from each mod. Next id get some help from who ever whould help me hopely they whould be rather good at codeing, skining, modleling, and those other important things that are necessary in modding. For the game its self id make it so in skirmish and The Campigns(s) that u whould pick the racing in the 1st age(Melkor, Edain, dwarves, the elves, and evil men). In the fortress u chould buy a upgrade to the next age where depending on your previous race uded get a choice between, the 2ed age races(Numanor(sp), Sauron, the elves, dwarves, easterlings , and haradrim). Then agin u chould buy a upgrade to the next age then uded agin uded get to chose your next race(Mordor, Gondor, Rohan, agmar, anor, elves, isengard, dwarves, haradrim, and easterlings). The upgrades cost 10,000 for the first 25,000 for the 2ed and 50,000 for the 3ed.The forth age chould be added if needed or wanted. For heros they all can be revived until u get the upgrade unless they exest in the next age so when u get the upgrade if u have a hero say Melkor and he dies he cant be revived but heros like elrond may be revive since he existed in the folowing ages. For the ring it shall be replaced with a simerilling(sp) untill some1 gets the upgrade to the 2ed age then it become the ring viva a scrip. The campign shall start in the first age when the elves leave valinor tell the end of the third age (or sometime in the forth age if it is added). If this happended thats what i whould do. :rolleyes:

Not to beat down upon your ideas, but
1) A mod is already doing something that covers multiple ages.
2) Covering that much history in one campaign would make it incredibly long and very drawn out.
3) Your ideas, while interesting and relatively awesome, more than like arent possible do to the way EA coded the game.
4) No very many would be willing to under take such a task.

Err, no. Advancing to the next age doesn't necessarily mean that faction gets stronger. Most likely weaker, eg. Elves. And in the case of say Isengard, how would you fit that into it? A subfaction of... God knows.

Eloquently used though....

This discussion should probably be dropped now, I think we had all the perfectly good reasons why this is not a sensible idea and we don't need to reiterate them endlessly.
