I am proud to present you today my last work, the new open-world map:
"Rise of Angmar"
Dedicated to the Arnor faction of Edain Mod.
This is a multiplayer 2v2 map which represents the war between Arnor and Angmar. It contains Fornost, Rivendell, Carn Dûm and Fortress of Mount Gram.
The map has been made to be played 2v2, mostly multiplayer. Bottom left spot is Fornost, whis has to be Gondor faction. Bottom right is Rivendell, top left is Carn Dum and top right is Mount Gram. Mount Gram will be better with the Misty Mountains faction but sadly it is not released at this day. AI does not work in Fornost and Rivendell and MAY EVEN CAUSE CRASHES IN RIVENDELL. AI works quite well in Carn Dûm and Mount Gram.
The gameplay of factions is not really changed because I wanted the map to be a "normal" skirmish map. Of course you will all start in fortresses but the gameplay of conquering settlements is there. I tried to balance the map the best I could.
I will let you discover the map by yourself but hereare some special features of the map:
- Rivendell can recruit Hobbits in Hobbit farm. Bandobras, Hobbit bowmen, donkey riders and even firework ballistas join the fight!
- Arnor can recruit Earnur and Gondor Tower Guards in the Border Stronghold.
- Gandalf's skillset has been reworked with some powers of Ered Luin Gandalf.
- Rivendell can build Lothlorien outer fortress in outposts, and can recruit Celeborn and Galadhrim.
- And many other things!
And last but not least, some screenshots here:
Many thanks to the Edain Team for their help, and for their mod, because without Edain Mod my maps could never exist. :)
I'm looking forward to your feedback!
Have fun playing with your friends! :)
Hey, this may be a dumb question, but if I was to play in either Fornost or Rivendell, and had the other as an AI ally, would that still cause the problems associated with the Fornost/Rivendell AI?
