Ancient sent me a new Golden Hall model that needs to be reworked, textured and implemented first. Then the town scene should be built around it in a similar manner of all the other Rohan towns I have done lately.

Might it be my golden halls? :o 

And oh, will Minas Tirith be:

This Minas Tirith:

OR

THIS GLORIOUS CITY OF MINAS TIRITH:

can't see the first one. The second one I quite like. It's J.Howe's work. It's funny, but he doesn't like it much ;) he says it's old work and that it's not lore accurate ;) ..

MT has been worked on, I think by Octoburn, we have the square scene that's already in 2.4 for the shops, merchants and all that, then there's the city scene for the stealth missions and the part O. worked on was the fountain court...Don't know how much of that is done...

Well, the first one was a picture of Minas Tirith that was seen in the movie. I'm not sure how lore accurate the movie version is, but i surely like the lower one more

Ah yeah, that was your golden hall.  It still needs some clean up but we'll try to get it in at some point.

You think you could simplify it a bit maybe?
As you know we're always trying to reduce polys and your model is superhuge in this respect.

Decorations that can be added with the texture shouldn't be modelled on.
Things that are hardly visible should be omitted entirely (stairs within roof towers for instance).

Might be easier to have two models, outside and inside ones.
Outside is closed and you enter as you do all other M&B buildings.
Inside doesn't have to have all the details of the outside...

Check TLD's Minas Tirith throneroom, which is just the inside and all the walls are completely flat with windows, doors and other decorations just drawn on a flat surface...

Dividing it into an exterior and interior version would be handy but you dont really need to watch the polys so much on the interior. There are no great battles or anything else going on in there so youve got several thousand to work with.  Don't go nuts on it but you should be fine.  Seperating the interior and exterior would be great though.

Uh, i fixed it a little already, i'll try to simplify it a bit more but i dont think i can separate the exterior and interior... Of, course, i'll try.  ??? I'm just being busy with my other project and i dont want to use any of my models in both TLD and my own graph pack. It could be kinda confusing because i'm working on models to another game than m&b. I also use different programs than people around here and it seems that these programs dont cooperate perfectly at all  :D (Goddammit my models look fine in the other game!!!  ;) )

However, i'll se what i can do

For outside view, just delete all the insides and close up the doors and windows, so it's basically a box with only outside walls visible.
For inside view the same, just reversed, delete all outside things that are not visible from inside, close up the doors and windows and you leave the inside of the box for texturing.

Really means sending us two much simpler models rather than one complex one.

Didn't texture it, had no idea what type of colour scheme would be suitable so Merlkir maybe you could give it a show. However i haven't mapped it at all, its late here.

Also the Variag mask i never sent.

It uses the Variag texture in the game files.


-grabbed them, thanks! AW
