Not sure what the hell these things are (Ogres? Trolls? Different breed of Giant?) but whatever they are, they'd be a neat addition.

I think it would best to host a new The Hobbit mod, where stuff from different mods comes together. I mean, these things are nice, but are only an addition if it is a real 'The Hobbit' game. I know Nazgul is working on it, so he might ask for a new hosted mod, otherwise I intend to.

Main problem we have is a lack of animations and skeleton for the object. Sure Naz could model them up, but we simply have no way to put them into the game with proper movement animations and so forth.

It might be possible, when a 'The Hobbit' mod is in a further development stage, somebody animate it. For now it is indeed impossible.

LOL. yes nothing is impossible. However we dont have an animator and our understanding is that it is really hard to hand create animations. Its a lot of work for one object. Frankly I just dont see the payoff.

Yeah... these seem to be some kind of giant as they are WAY bigger than trolls. But like NJM said, they would require new anims, which we don't have. Also, they are redundant as the goblin faction already have troll operated slingshots from RotWK. Plus, I don't want to use every single thing from the Hobbit movies. This is a LotR mod first and foremost.

And the troll-operated sled-catapults seem like an upgrade in size to these. =D
