1. Why can't we get into the staff forum ^^ ;)
2. Will the menu get an overhaul? Like new menu map ect because it's totally different than lord of the rings,

1. Because you're not staff.
2. Most likely not. You're supposed to play the game, not look at the menus :p

Yeah, from what I hear overhauling the menu adds quite a load of MB's to the file. Not worth it when you're only going to be looking at it for 10 seconds max (if you're slow as hell).

It was only about an extra 10mbs for me... I download at about 5mb/s with up to 30 available, so it's what like an extra minute download for me :p.

It's your choice, but yes the mod is really for units and such, not menu artwork lol

No offense, but I wouldn't call your change of colours for an "overhaul" ;)
If we were to overhaul, we would do it completely. Away with all elvish inscriptions\designs, all the colouring, ect... I'm not exactly sure where most of the MBs would go, but I know for a fact that it would increase the filesize a fair amount.

no offense taken, my limitations in gimp are not very big and all i did was change the rgb around ;).

But really with internet connection speeds these days, is it such a pain to download even 1gb? Back then I would of cringed and gulped at about a week long download, now i would laugh at the size and its done within 20 minutes, sometimes even 10. Nowadays we have 500gb 1tb hard drive space, back in 2006 on my laptop i could only get around 80.

You have*

Still, it's not just about size. We Matias have to make it aswell.

edit: The main thing for me, is the fact that there's a big difference between, say, 600mb and 750mb, just for a changed menu... I just don't see any good reason for doing it. That's about the size difference I've heard that a complete overhaul would use.

Indeed. My internet is not so fast, nor do I have anything close to 1tb in space available. I have 25gb free at this moment. It fluctuates heavily. :p

If it were to become part of our to-do list, it'd be of the lowest priority.
