TLD Christmas Preview

Llew posted this preview at the Taleworlds forum, so I thought I'd post it here as well.


Quote
Mounted on proud steeds, the Knights of the Citadel defend Minas Tirith with swift stroke and deadly charge. They provide the mounted wing of the armies of Gondor, and fear is struck into the hearts of their foes when they enter the field.

Meduseld, the Golden Hall. From of old the seat of the Kings of Rohan, it overlooks the rolling grasslands of the horse lords in the shadow of the White Mountains.



A second render, made in imitation of this shot from the Movie.

The Last Days of the Third Age.




And the music preview from pagan:

OK folks, here is your TLD Old Music Christmas PREVIEW!!! *thunderclap* *voice in the distance* "bring out your dead, bring out your dead"

The first minute of the sample, are 2 track snippets from TAKE 1, probably a year old now. the other 3 minutes are 3 track snippets from TAKE 2. You will no doubt hear the difference in quality yourself anyway, and thus have some form if indication as to what TAKE 3 might sound like  :wink: which i am currently doing, so even the TLD dev team hasn't heard it.

I hope this eases your minds a little as to the music/atmosphere you will have while playing TLD... or it could cause a total panic hehe

Enjoy

Awesome! (although I didn't expect anything less...)

Judging by the screens you have posted so far, you're not keeping much at all from the old .808 version, are you?

Very, very little. In fact...one or two armors and/or helms touched up? And a shield or three. Maybe some architecture, but I plan on making a lot of new stuff and remaking the stuff of mine that was in the old version.

Thanks guys! I was wondering when you were going to post this here. I got scared that the official forum had changed!

Very, very pretty.  This mod is the one reason I'm still playing M&B at all.  Love the new models for Gondor's troops.  Makes me want to BE a knight of the Citadel :)

Looking forward to the new release.  Also, glad to see someone has taken the initiative to go forward in Ancientwanker's absence.

I think the sun itself speaks of the royalty of the Golden Hall. the sunburst was, IIRC, a symbol taken up by Theoden himself, that was not necessarily associated with Rohan as a whole, but with Theoden and his family.

I think.

So is this just the new version, or the 101/new version? it looks very epic...

It's not 1.011 we're still modding on .808.

Old school.

Actually, we're considering rolling back to 0.700. 0.808 has some really redundant features and is too graphics heavy.

I'm now painting and drawing commissions. I'll paint portraits, pets, girlfriends, favourite characters..you name it. Send me a PM if interested ;)

I can't stop looking at those knights.

More or less how many months will this take still?
