Hey all

I've only got a small pic for you today, and well... It's not final product, as you'll easily see on the catapult itself, but it's all you'll get in the next beta :p

Posted Image

On another hand, I've been lack motivation for a few weeks now, but that doesn't mean no beta for Christmas ;)
It's just, gonna lack a few things that I wanted to have in the beta... But now atleast Gondor and Rhun should be as complete as I can get them, and much more improved since the last beta.. And of course, Rohan's gotten quite a few new things :grin:
Uhm, no I haven't decided on the last tier one power for Rhun, so that's lacking.. :sad:

Well, that's it... After the beta I'll be taking trying to take a break... It will most likely fail, and I'll still be here every day, but not mod.. :sad: I do hope that I either get more motivation to work after a successful break, or just leave this place for good... only time will tell, but I've had a great time here though :)

I'd be absolutely OVERJOYED if E.A. actually put out stuff like that! You put them all to shame! Wait, and what problems are there with it? You said it's not final.

And if you're really having trouble spawning ideas for the first tier of Rhun... Perhaps a war cry clone but with a different name? Permenant enemy nerf power? Hopefully, you'll come up with something.

Well, currently it's still the same power as Isengard has, War Cry... ;) But they also have another war cry though, with another name...
permanent nerf power aren't really suited for a tier one power :)

And you should be able to see all the parts I've used from EA's skin, and added to my own really basic wood... :p Easily seen on the wheels ;)

And it's not a suicide note, you'll have to wait until next year for that :)

Oh... I guess I didn't notice it in the wheels. Well, it still beats the bs that E.A. put out. Pretty much every mod here does that.

Hmm i have an idea for that power of yours, still thinking of what it could do fully but i have a name - dunno if u think it's any good;

Name: Lament of the Sorcerer (simple, i know - if u don't liek sorcerer, maybe khoragan? or another hero?)

Type: Buff

Ability: Gives the troops it is cast on "mirror armour", meaning the next damage they take is reflected back to whatever hit them as half (maybe a quarter against heroes?) of the damage done (eg 100 damage done from an arrow is reflected back as 50 damage). Damage reflected back at heroes is diffused around the hero, hurting any nearby troop. I feel it'd be a good strategy for a hit and run tactic for a load of weaker troops, or good if charging head-first with a hero against another hero, to give an upper hand almost straight away.

If that isn't really that clear, or too powerful, then feel free to play around with it, just thought it'd help.

Also im new to the forums so sorry if it's the wrong spot!

the catapult is really authentic and professional too! if you need any help with ideas, i might float here from time to time cuz this is an awesome mod! keep up the good work!

He's said he really doesn't think he can. If he wants to, at least he's not gonna rip down his awesome work. I love the mod, and it will rival TEA in terms of skirmish eventually. If only we could have a campaign... I can only imagine how good it would be. Oh well.

Lauri although we sometimes butt heads :p
I hope you keep at it.
We have lost too many senior modders in recent times.

In regards to the Catapult perhaps make it a little more "wooden" other then it looks good.

And what's worse about losing senior modders is that nobody is replacing them. You have mods like SEE and WotE. They're good mods but SEE is missing a coder and WotE is missing a skinner and modeler (I think). Mappers are in good supply, but that's about all.

Anyways, this has gotten too off-topic.

sorry i hadnt replied again - internet was down for a week :grin: but about it not being able? i think that pallando on "wars of the east" mod had a similar power, maybe if its not too much trouble you could try design it like that?

or maybe modify it so that it fires a black fireball out when the unit dies, as like a last resort attack.

I'm fairly certain that mirror-damage isn't possible...

And whatever power Pallando has, he's a hero... a spell-book power is not designed quite the same way ^_^
I don't know about black fireball... sounds way out of order to me :grin:

What about the Witchking's Reflect damage? you could use that as a mirror damage thing.

Hm, never knew about that power... thanks for the heads up :grin:
However, I still don't know how to get that to be working as a power...
Can't really see any solution, as it can't be attributed onto the units, and afaik, I couldn't have put it on all the units for Rhun, with an upgrade thingy...
