Hi all!

I thought that this blue print of team member's assignments might help you all to get a better overview of estimated progress and the work at hand... before the next beta release!

BETA RELEASE PLANS
Major features for each beta up until final release...
- Beta 4.7: Adding RHÛN/HARAD faction as a 7th faction...
- Beta 4.8: Splitting ROHAN from GONDOR, and HARAD from RHÛN into 8th and 9th faction...
- Beta 4.9: Coding of SEE Campaign for Good and Evil, follwing the storyline (movies & books) as closely as possible... + overhaul of Naval Warfare (Ships).
- Beta V: Final beta! 100% polished (balance, models, textures, art, etc) and pending any need for future release of patches (bug fixes, etc).



ASSIGNMENTS

Nazgûl:
- Coordinate work between all active team members & contributors
- Final balance of gameplay
- Polish skins, textures & art

Sûlherokhh: (If we get him back, again)
- Special coding like AI, FX, scripting, LUA, etc

Ridder Blauw:
- Overall coding like adding units, heroes, structures, new features, etc

Radspakr:
- Coding of spell book powers and hero powers

TTandCHotmail:
- Modeling of Rhûn fortress, upgrades & expansions
- Modling of Rohan fortress, upgrades & expansions
- Modeling of Harad fortress, upgrades & expansions
- Modeling of Edoras structures for Edoras fortress map
& any additional structure modeling he might want to do

Ed of the 3rd Kind:
- Modeling improvements of varios units (Noldor, Gondorians, Orcs, etc) using CaH parts (rigging)
- Modeling of some new units, like Dwarven Warriors (replacing the ugly "Warhammer-ish" EA units)

Ridder Geel:
- Rig/bind Mûmakil for the Mahûd mount upgrade

NJM:
- Any mapping he should desire to do...

Mordor Slayer & all Beta Testers:
- Extensive testing of each faction, together with the Prodution Team (Naz, Sul, TT, etc)
- Marketing (MS)



TASKS
(not necessarily in this exact order...)

1) Add all remaining heroes, units & structures (for this beta)!
2) Design and create powers for all new heroes!
3) Revise the Spell Books and hopefully design spells, powers and abilities unique for each of the 7 factions! (GONDOR/ROHAN, LOTHLÓRIEN, EREBOR, MORDOR, ISENGARD, MORIA, RHÛN/HARAD)
4) Put together and implement the new overhauled Ring Hero system and mechanics!
5) Clean up the codes, check for inconsistancy and remove any files/art not needed!
6) Balance gameplay thoroughly!
7) Beta testing, phase #1! Special care taken to bugs, balance, and verifying that the AI works for all things added!
8) Adjustments and bug fixes!
9) Beta testing, phase #2!
10) Final adjustments and bug fixes before release of Beta 4.7!



ETA: *pending* 2011

ETA: Spring 2010

:D
2 years to do that? You must be kidding, A team of 5-10 people could pull that off in maximum a month. How many models are we talking about? 10-15 new models with textures? Not to be arrogant, but I could pull that off within a week if I worked my ass off. Not that I would like to work my ass off...but 2 years?? :blink:

I don't know why you would criticize the mod team. they are not getting paid for this, and are doing it for us without really any reward. they have real lives to live and jobs to go to, so it's not like they can work on this every day for 24 hours. and spring 2010 is only in about 4-6 months...that's sooner than i thought actually. for spellbook ideas you could see my 4.8 suggestion thread, naz. it's got unique powers for all the factions (plus rohan for 4.8). i look forward to spring 2010! :blink:

You weren't really paying attention in school, now did you Hermoor, you imbecill... (since I assume it's you, back as a guest. Very few people can match your level of immaturity and arrogance). And you know, spring 2010 is about HALF a year... not 2, you fuggin arrogant little prick, lol

Well at least I have something to look forward to. I might get it when I get Windows 7 AND when Windows gets the service packs.
Wait... what?

You know, I couldn't care if the mod was set to be released in 2011. The fact that Nazgul is constantly updating with new plans and finished bits and the SEE forums are really buzzing is enough to keep me waiting and supporting the mod.

I don't worry about the release date, just want to make sure the mod is still progressing!

The plans look good.
Ignited into the world in a flash of lightning, it gleams faintly in the heart of its mother, wood. It begins as an ember, a mere wisp of heat and colour. Its chance of survival at this critical moment is minute, yet it fights on, against the unforgiving cold, against the depths of night and against its mortal enemy: rain.

As far as I'm concerned, I'm enjoying the topics around here. Not to mention the current beta is far from getting old, I play almost daily. And as I mentioned in topics before, if you need a hand with modelling, I wouldn't mind trying. I know my way around Max, Photoshop, and modding, though I never did anything for this engine in particular.

You don't have to be so rude to Hermoor even if he's "immature and arrogant" as Nazgul put it. I mean, seriously, that's really not helping anything. Your acting worse than anything I saw him say.

Spring 2010 sounds very reasonable to me... It's not really a trivial thing. It takes a very long time to get everything just right.
Greetings, community.

there is a rotwk mod called the history of ages, and they used some models and skins from third age: total war. seeing as TA:TW have some good harad (and rhun) models and skins, and flameguard has gone awol, perhaps we could ask if we could borrow some models from their game? what is your opinion on this, nazgul?

edit: i just found out that the history of ages mod used a lot of stuff from other mods without permission...

@Ralph: You have a PM =)

@Yams: That was hilarious!!! :p

@Gfire: With all do respect for your opinion, Hermoor is banned and he deserved all that came his way. If he keeps busting my chops, I'll bust his nu**. That's just the way it goes. Respect the work we do, or get the fugg out. That's my terms :p (And I meant him now, not you) ;p Constructive critisism is one thing, being an angel towards ppl that doesn't deserve it - that's not how I operate =p

@Kham: I hardly doubt you can port models from other games into BFME... but if they did, good for them. The models are too different (polys, etc) for this angine though, so the amount of editing needed won't justify the work. Even if we got permission. It's better to pick up where Flame left... if someone is willing to. Ralph perhaps?

Hey, quick question: about the build times, when were you planning to change them? Before or after beta 4.7?

But build plan. . . Because I didn't see the buildtimes, I was wondering if that wasn't for beta 4.7.

This is what the top of the Development forum looks like as we speak...

"Forged Blades" (upgraded weapons)
The glow could be changed into...

SEE Spellbooks
New spells to make each faction's book unique!

Splitting-Factions Discussion
Moved here from Rhûn/Harad-Splitting thread

SEE Build Times
Big change in SEE core settings for Beta 4.7


Now - take a wild guess as to WHERE we talk about build times within the mod's gameplay!... Then take another look as to what this topic is about (build PLAN for the mod), and ask yourself if you posted in the correct topic? :p


Sorry if I'm being sarcastic, but you have to admit you made it easy for me :p
