Hey so I got it for a lotr battle cause i have the lotr mod, but it was in survival so i can't spawn anything... Great map though!
This is a great map, and is good for EW, but (sorry if this is a bit harsh) does not look as much like the movie as I would have liked :D.

Hello :) I love this map soooo much, i was busting to create a proper Adventure Map as their are hardly any for the battle of the five armies movie. I just wanted to know if this would be ok with you. I will give all credit. I am going to make sure it is very proffesional. I am waiting until you release the map which has the three different maps (Erebor, Esgaroth and Dale) as obviously all critical for the map. Thankyou

We went over some designs and thought this was best. But it's one of
things I later regret doing most.. I still wish we had just kept it as
one, but I don't really feel like redoing it entirely.

Here's a question: I can clearly see that you drew inspiartion from the movies, but did you read in the books for how Tolkien actually intended it to be, and do you do this for all your LOTR builds?
  • EpicQuestz
  • Level 79
  • Legendary Creator
  • February 1, 2015, 3:09 am
We read most of the information of every of the cities, but The Hobbit was a very small book giving only few information on the looks of the city, so we based this build mainly on the movies.

Thank you! And it's chunky with photoshop :) gives it almost a C4D effect.

as epic as this is i kinda wanna slap the dude who thought is was cool to add default trees around such a good project, seriously, get rid of that person, it's taking so much away from the build :(
still, it's a beautiful project.

Just to say that the person who did all terrain also did pretty much all planning, mapping, gate designs & many buildings on the project :P
I understand your concerns about them being Minecraft trees, but do note that they are changed, we just wanted small trees and making custom trees this small is barely possible.

if you need someone who is good at small trees i can assist you, i specialise in small custom trees, so you can understand my discomfort when i saw the evil vanilla trees lurking in the screenshots :P

It is nice indeed. Although there is two things I don't really like in your Lotr maps, the trees. And the terrain, the terrain is sort of bland, and too spiky at times. And I just feel like you should maybe use custom trees, it gives the terrain and architecture more depth. But overall amazing map, I always look forward to seeing them.

We have used custom trees at some spots and maps (especially Nen Hithoel), but we felt like using large custom trees would make this map look too small. I really like the Taiga trees with different logs and leaves like we used them on the Dale outside here, but we have used several different custom trees for the inside of the city.

I'd say the enviroment surrounding is almost as important as the city. It's what makes it pop

The first screenshot looks a little off (too many smokestacks), but other then that, it's an incredible project.
  • EpicQuestz
  • Level 79
  • Legendary Creator
  • January 31, 2015, 12:39 pm
Thanks! There's one smokestack per chimney, and 1-2 chimneys per house (depending on size) so the city has quite a lot of them. I think this was just an angle showing too many.
Looks strange and different, i like it :-)
