Erebor (for Edain 3.8 & 4.0) by Gagolin (ver. 1.0)

Number of Players:
These are two Erebor maps for Edain 3.8 and 4.0 respectively. I packed them together in one ZIP file, but every map has it's own directory with number in the name ("38" or "40"). Just simply copy and paste the map you want in "maps" directory.
Some objects are missing in demo EDAIN 4.0 (new dwarven statue), but I hope that it will be there again in final Edain version. Because of that, in Thror's throne room is no visible dwarven statues, yet.
A few more details:
- The Smaug is not in maps.
- There is the secret entrance, however, only dwarven race can open it from outside. From inside any race can find and open this door.
- The maps are containing over 9400 Objects, so be advised about it (PC performance) :)
- The best graphical depth of "Erebor" city comes with, at least, "High" shadow and shader options.
First photos I've uploaded earlier:
These are two new photos for comparative purposes (there are some simplifications outside the Erebor - I did that because of some issues I've found later)
Enjoy playing or just explore my interpretation of PJ's inside and outside parts of Erebor :)
(It is quite playable, but may lag on older PCs, after all, the objects on this map are 9400+.)
(It is balanced, but players inside Erebor will sometimes find it more difficult to find settlements or outposts than the players outside.)
(Very creative; you managed to place every part of Erebor and parts of Dale from the Hobbit movies in one map, connecting the different halls inside the mountain and creating your own layout of where everything is located, and the idea of rubble that needs cleaning at the gates to pass through is quite smart.)
Map Design: 5
(My favorite part. Your texturing skills have improved a lot since your last Erebor map, and also your placing of some objects. The map is spectacular!)
(The instructions you have made for the map are really useful for finding your way through the map to the famous places seen in the movies, e.g. Thror's throne room, the Treasury, etc.)
This map is extremely well made and is totally worth downloading and playing it! Although some people say a larger part of Dale should have been on the map instead of some places in Erebor, I agree with Gagolin's decision - the map is made for you to discover the wonders of Dwarven architecture! Keep making more amazing maps, Gagolin, and I hope we see an edited version of this map (with Dwarven statues in the throne room, etc.) soon.
