I have decided to release the current version of Shadow and Flame to the (limited) public here at T3A, because the mod isn't moving very quickly and I thought perhaps some of you might enjoy playing a new (albeit highly unfinished) evil faction.
This alpha is made up of a basically playable Gundabad faction, containing the following:
- Basic units (Gundabad Orcs and Moria Orcs)
- Wolf-pack unit
- Hill Troll unit
- Moria Cave Troll unit
- Some tier 1 and 2 spellbook powers
- Custom buildings for every unit
- Unit upgrades
- Bolg, son of Azog, complete with a couple of powers
- 2d art for most things
What the alpha does not contain:
- A bug-free playing environment
- A complete experience of the planned Gundabad faction
- Up-to-date implementation of said planning
- Complete unit roster
- Complete building roster
- Complete hero roster
- Complete spellbook
All in all, I'd reckon the mod is about 25 to 40% complete, depending on which version of the plan I go by. I would appreciate it if those that play could report glaring bugs and problems (so no posts stating that something is missing, I know all about what is missing).
Also, if anybody is interested in working with me on a fairly slow basis to further complete this mod (I need a decent coder), you can post here as well. Unknown, if you read this and have time, feel free to contact me.
Screenshots etc. are also welcome, as are any other questions.
Installation is old-fashioned, just put the .big in My Battle for Middle-earth Files and make a shortcut with -mod SaF.big added to the target.
PS: I'm sorry for not adding the cool T3A hosted video into the mod, I have no idea how to do this since I am not a coder.
