Dwarrowdelf

Author File Description

File Details
ROTWK Map: Yes
Number of Players: 1
One Ring: No
AI: Yes
Minimap:
Dwarrowdelf map started as an extension of the first mission map from BFME campaign (Moria) and ended as a huge modification project that took me about 1500 hours to do (no kidding !).

The action follows The Fellowship of the Ring from The Council of Elrond, through all the beautiful places of middle earth and finishes on the shores of Anduin with the departure of The Fellowship from Lothlorien.

There are 3 ways you can achieve this, the book-like way - through the mines of Moria, but you can also pass Charadras or The Gap of Rohan (through Isengard and then Fangorn).

After you reach the city of Caras Galadhon you can finish the map victoriuos or you can play the bonus missions.

This map could get a little bit lagy because i recommend you to play it on ultra high level of details and it's dimensions are huge (biggest possible), and also because when i made it i wanted huge epic battles, with lots of enemy units, so... that's what i did.

This being said, enjoy !

regards, seemann

As some friends reported me a bug in the intro cinematic i have made some small modifications. The downloadable file is the new version.

Fun to re-experience the Lord of the Rings story. I don't have BFMEI so it's the first time that I played the story on BFME.

Balance: 5
The map is difficult where it has to be. Caradhas is hard, but of course it can't be something else.

Creativity: 4.5
Good idea to let the player choose between Moria, Caradhas and Isengard, three totally different stories.

Map Design: 4.5
Good use of textures. I especially like Rivendell, it is just like in the book and films, a beautiful place. There's a lot to explore in Moria. Good cinematics too.

Story/Instructions: 5
It's the Lord of the Rings story, what else can I say?

Additional Comments:
It's clear that there's been put a lot of time in the map, it's surely worth to try out! Keep on the good job!

Duke what would you have liked to see more so you could give it 5 to the review? I am asking cause i am still working to improve it.
Also i am curious, have you finished it in all 3 scenarios? Did you play the bonus missions?
Duke Of Gondor The 4.5 for playability is because the map would be more exiting (not that it isn't exiting already) if there were some more battles along the roads (for example Caradhas has only 2 Snow Trolls). The 4.5 for Map Design and Creativity is because of Isengard. I think it's just too small and another water texture would fit more. Still, it's a great map :) I finished all three roads and tried the Lorien Bonus Mission.

For a bigger Isengard i didn't have the place :). If you noticed the map's dimensions are the biggest and there are no unfilled places left .. every spot is occupied. I wanted so bad to make more room for Rivendell but as you could see i only had space for half of it.
About the water - i know, i am working on that, it will be better when i finish.
Here's a thing i bet you didn't know: If you get to Lothlorien by Caradhras or Isengard you can still go back inside Moria and release the Balrog. Only this time you will fight him for real! (but you will have Galadriel and the other elven units).

Btw have you met any bugs? this would really help.
snuper1234 Perfect .. Just perfect.
I loved the idea that u can choose Elrond in Rivendell and use the skill "Rivendell story".
Best map i played so far.

TY, i am still working on it. But the changes will be mainly cosmetic ... no big differences in the action. I could really use some bug reports from you guys

(well the map itself its great the details make the game enjoyable)

Balance: 5
(in Caradhras would have been better more troops though there was not orcs or stuff in the high pass. pretty good job )

Creativity: 5
(this is not prett original dont missunderstand me i mean this is like a remake of bfme campaing first map. something cool would be if you would make a Silmarillion map campaing map like this one, yet this is pretty good the desing and code should have killed you so i'll give you my 5)

Map Design: 5
(Unbelieavable i'm an experienced mapper and yet found a little mistakes but it's acceptable hehe. anyway the texture and the size of the map is killing. texturing should have took lot of time good job)

Story/Instructions: 5
(what to say its just great hehe keep it up)

Additional Comments:
try to make some map according to the unfinished tales of tolkien. that would be very original :)

TY Kahmu.
About originality - the map started as an expansion of bfme 1 first mission so i don't mind it looking bfme 1 like. In fact this is what i wanted - to recapture the feel from that map(cause playing that i fell in love with lotr).
About the little mistakes ... i am still working on some small changes but only cosmetic ones - the action and battles won't be affected. And i will make a small change to Caradhras as you are not the only one to ask this. I will make a small group of mountain giants
