I'm looking for someone to bring my ideas to life. I've got some awesome ideas for a complete new mod, but I don't know how to create them.
So, if anyone is planning to make a mod but doesn't know what to make, please let me help you.

Also if some-one is making a mod (story-based, books and movie) allready let me know!

Maybe you can help me. I have a suggestions topic. I generally come up with a lot of stuff for myself but sometimes I need help with ideas, so that might be a place you can help me out.

Let me make a list of some of my ideas...

* Gandalf can mount both Shadowfax and Gwaihir.
* Gandalf can pick up any hero while mounted on Gwaihir.

* Aragorn becomes King Elessar at a certain lvl, which gives him new powers
* King Elessar carry's Anduril so he can have a attack bonus. (not an usable power)
* King Elessar has the Hands of the King, which can heal more damage then Athelas.
* King Elessar can summon the Guards of the Citadel.
* King Elessar can use the Palantir to see far.
* King Elessar can give strength to his men.
* King Elessar can't summon Oathbreakers since he let them pass on...

* Treebeard can summon more ents to his side
* Treebeard can summon a group of Huorn (the orc killing trees at Helms Deep)

It's not much yet, but I still have plenty of ideas!!

These look like some good ideas which I'm sure some people will be interested in. Not sure if they're right for me, though.

Personally I'd like to have Gwaihir stay a single hero my himself. However, more importantly, there is some trouble with units "mounted" on eagles: When a flying unit attacks ground units, it carries them off in it's claws... That wouldn't work properly if Gandalf or another unit were already being carried.

The Kind Elassar sounds cool, but I'm not sure how it would work out in-game. He got Anduril reforged way back in Rivendell (or he got it in Dunharrow, in the film >.<) which was long before the Oathbreakers... Why wouldn't he be able to summon them? Also, he used the Palantir long before he summoned the Oathbreakers, as well... And removing a power seems a bit odd, as far as gameplay goes. Oathbreakers is already a level ten power and if it was removed I don't think it would make a lot of sense. But if it was kept it might work out for him.

I like the Treebeard ideas. I've always wanted him to have some more powers, like Leadership to Ents, War Cry, Battle Rage, Summon Ents, Summon Huorns, ect.

Huorns would need some anims, though. Otherwise, I would have made them already. They are probably making some tree models and anims for the Battles of Narnia mod (like the ones in Prince Caspian), and those would probably work, if they would loan them to other mods. They should also be able to disguise themselves as normal trees.

Don't even try making Gandalf mount Gwaihir. RA never got that fully working, lots of complexities.

But not be carried by one... ^_^ which is how it should be.

I'd think that if an eagle was carrying someone, they wouldn't be swooping around attacking orcs anymore.

Nah, he's swoop down anyway and Gandalf would take a swing at their orc-necks ^_^

Yes, but Gandalf had a shadowfax mount too. Multiple mounts and all...

I remember Wars of Arda's Nazgul being able to mount both horses and fellbeasts, actually... but that involved removing some powers. Perhaps he could toggle commandsets when he mounted either Shadowfax or Gwaihir?

I agree with Ithilien. It could be possible.
Wait... what?

Yeah, I think that's correct. I've heard of several people having trouble with multiple mounts in BFME1, but not really any problems in BFME2. I've never done it myself, though. You might still have to do some different commandset things to get it to work. Gandalf might have to lose a power or something. And there's still the carrying problem, but it would be acceptable to just have him ride on the back of Gwaihir.

The summon ent Power can be made for Treebeard
The other types of attack trees can be made by re-doing the Ent's and the Elven wood power

In my mod treebeard can sommon Ents and Elven wood and Merry / Pippen

What I did for Gandalf I made him abloe to summon one Eagle as a power

The aragorn transform can work by giving aragorn a toggle form power
that is accesable at a certain level (need upgrade)

The new form will have new commandset etc.

I dont know about the AUTO transform but it may work
by having coding similiar to gandalf's where he becomes white at level 5
Then he gets an upgrade that activates certain powers and de-activates others

all of these is possible, the only thing you have to take care off is:
for aragorn:
it is possible to make him switch commandset and the skin would do the same thing as gandalfs
for gandalf:
make a separate condition state with PASSENGER_CONTAINED and give it no weapon, or make gwaihir like a transport boat, but then you can't see guys

About Aragorn;

I remember that he didn't enter Minas Tirith till the battle for Pellenor was over, officially he wasn't made king at that moment, he even sleeps in a tent, close to the gate.
I know he caries Anduril allready at that moment but he didn't had the crown of Gondor on his head.

So, he couldnt summon the army of the dead at the moment he became king.

Another idea, in BFME1 gandalf turns white with the help of a spell-power (from the Palantir-menu)
Maybe it's an idea to use the same trick for Aragorn, so you can choose to use Aragorn as a ranger, or a king.

About Gandalf;

my idea was based on the Nazgul from the SEE-mod, which have 1 button which changes from foot to horse-mounted to fellbeast-mounted.

So, maybe anyone of you can do something with it, an please let me know if you put some of my ideas in your mod, so I can check it!
