    I gave up on finding help a long time ago. I mention that I am working on it alone often so that people know only one person is working on it and not an entire mod team. Obviously with only one person working on it (in his spare time) it will take a lot longer and you will not expect as much and therefore will not be disappointed . Hopefully I will start getting some feedback and help once I release a new Beta, but as I said, I got distracted. I will probably release it sometime this week, so we will see how things unfold. Due to its EPIC-NESS it takes awhile to get everything ready for a Beta release, uploading also takes a long while, which is why I rarely ever release my work.

    I actually did release a Beta of Dawn of the Fourth Age with my last Beta release and no one even tried it, or at least gave me feedback on it. That is okay though, now when peeps complain about something I can just tell them to fix it themselves!

    "active" help is harder to find than the one-ring itself (a geeky joke...but it's true..)

    I get offers of help often enough, but most do not know how to do anything useful and are not willing to learn something new. They seem to think modders are just innately blessed with whatever skill and knowledge they have . I don't mind though as I got to do everything the way I wanted and I don't have to fix other peep's bugs and eff ups.

    I'm not against helping, but my 3D modelling skill is at 0, and I only modded some XMLs for some failed civ 4 mod, so I wonder how much of a help I could be.

    I've started a game with Brood of Ancalagon, and after killing the dwarves on turn 7 (they brought their king and heir to the battle...) I had the surprise to see the city I had battled for filled with iron dragons. This meant a reload, 'cause my army was quite crippled from the battle with the dwarves, and my economy wasn't bright either. A fun playthrough anyway, the drakes are quite nice to see in action.

    Can my dragons be injured by the breath of their fellas ? I suppose yes, but I'm not quite sure.

    Yes you can hurt or kill your own drakes with fire, the Chieftains can take some abuse but the smaller ones may die instantly if hit with friendly fire. I spread them out pretty good to keep it from happening too often, I guess it is working since you had to ask that question .

    Do you think the Dwarves died too easily? Or do the drake factions start out with too strong of units?


    PATCH 1 has also been released, it adds some files I forgot to include with Beta 05. It should be save game compatible.

    I think most northern factions will die easily to a decided Brood of X assault. I used two general units and two patriachs, and I think most of my loss were due to friendly fire. I mostly exposed my two generals, 'cause those refill automatically. I'm not suggesting a nerf to the Broods, as its a do or die assault and you've got no economy to speak of, but northern factions should maybe have more than two guys in their family, so as to decrease the odds of them sending their king and heir to their ultimate fate in one decisive battle. Northern factions should get some pikes/halberds able to make a phalanx in their starting army, 'cause regular units just got rolled over in melee. Dwarven bodyguards were especially unimpressive.

    I just started the FA campaign and here is some feedback:
    - RK settlements and forts, once ungarrisoned, show the byzantine vanilla med 2 flag.
    - Some RK unit description are a bit confused, for example RK militia: "The ancient kingdom of Reunited kingdom has just recently have been restored ...".
    I would suggest instead : "The ancient Reunited Kingdom has just recently have been restored ...".

    The flag thing will be fixed eventually, though probably not by me (hopefully).

    The current unit descriptions for the RK units are from vanilla, and so not made by me. I will completely re-write them though interweaving a story and maybe some wit along the way as with most of my unit descriptions, just hasn't been a priority yet.

    Of course. I wouldn't define it a priority either at all, I was just pointing out the first things I noticed

    Probably not very helpful, but when playing as Rohan my game has repeatedly crashed on the Dunlendings when I click end turn. Also, whilst the ambush script is cool, I have noticed that 'devastation' often occurs, giving me an easy indication of where they are. Not sure if anything can be done about that though.
