That's interesting.
Have you carried out a survey to the people who has seen this project?

Yes I have, in the matter of fact. Here are the answers:

-I didn't.
-Surely I didn't.
-Well, almost did, but not quite.
-Bwah! Who could mistake to think it was the in-game shot?
-No, I didn't.
-Isn't it pretty obvious it isn't in-game?

And those are just a fraction of the answers. There were totally 213.

All of them came from me.

You are wrong for thinking that it is obviously not an in-game.
Most of those could be achieved by sonic ether's shadow and a bit of photoshop.
The things also looks quite blocky.
Beside my first comment was to mock this project getting so many views by tricking people with the cover image.

Well you must had a bad day if you thought your previous comment was funny.

Ouch, that hurt! But how would your comment help people? People who have already come here and looked at the other pictures too? Nobody downloads a project just from the look of the cover image. Which, by the way, is blocky because it has such bad resolution.

And, back to the main arguement, its surely not an in-game because it is too generic and realistic picture. If you can build one which looks exactly like the tower in the pic, I believe you. However, I'm sure you can't.

And, finally, I got to admit, there is one thing we both agree on. This tower doesn't look anything like the actual one ;)

You are wrong for assuming comments have to help people.
I doubt your comments are helping anyone too :) It looks like you are just arguing with me for the sake of arguing.
Yes no body downloads a project just from the look of the cover image. However, everybody decide whether to click on the project or not just from the look of the cover image.

The photo isn't in a bad resolution. It looks fine in my rmbp. It is the shadows and the details on the tower that makes it look like as if it was rendered through chunky or Sonic ether;s shadow.

The main argument, however is not about whether this is an in game picture or not. It is about whether ANY ONE THOUGHT THIS WAS AN IN GAME PICTURE. In this sense, you have nothing to say back to me because there is one person who thought it was rendered through chunky or SE's shadow RIGHT HERE.

I wouldn't build that tower just to prove that it might look like an in game pic.
However, I am sure that it can be achieved. Ask heavenlord if you don't believe me lol.

I am not quite sure what you mean by we both agree on the fact that the tower not looking like the actual one. What is actual one referring to? Please clarify that.

I shall answer some of your questions.
"You are wrong for assuming comments have to help people"
-You said yourself in your last comment: "Beside my first comment was to mock this project getting so many views by tricking people with the cover image."
-I think that means: "I try to help people to not come here"

"I doubt your comments are helping anyone too :) It looks like you are just arguing with me for the sake of arguing"

-I never really said my comments were helping, and yes, I am just arguing for fun :) I like to argue with people who are smart and good in arguements ;)

"However, everybody decide whether to click on the project or not just from the look of the cover image"
-Indeed. But, we are back in the section, "Was your comment helpful?".

Well, I must give you that, it can be made to look like the real one, however I doubt anyone would do that. And it would be quite misleading pic then.

"I am not quite sure what you mean by we both agree on the fact that the tower not looking like the actual one. What is actual one referring to? Please clarify that."

- What I meant with "actual one" was the one in the movie. As you can see, in-gameà photos don't look like the one in the pic. And as you said earlier,
"Beside my first comment was to mock this project getting so many views by tricking people with the cover image."

It sounds to me like you don't think it looks anything like the cover image ;)

Technically, it's not "the Barrad-Dûr", but "Barad-dûr". It means "Dark tower" in Sindarin, Tolkien's 'modern' Elvish.

An awesome build, I must say. Though, near impossible to truly see with the night-time shots.
