    This is the map that I'm creating for people that like me loves Lord of the Rings books and movies world and story and want take a part in the War for Middle Earth from both sides good and evil . I have played all the games ever been released of Middle earth, also I am big fan of Warcraft3 (Middle Earth) map like LOTR: Ring Wars, LOTR-Last Alliance. I want to create the map of a high quality with a beautiful terrain like in the Peter Jackson's movie that is all around the story of LotR, but not only the events that was shown in the movie but also in the books.
    I would like you all LOTR fans to give me useful suggestions , All your suggestions will be highly appreciated !)

    Terrain is so beutiful I love the buildings and bases youve created there!

    I tested this online afew weeks ago, I think you were there as an observer, my feedback would be that there needs to be alot more terrain fleshed out for the landscape between the fortresses. So far it seems we only have the fortresses ingame then lots of empty space between them. But its only an alpha so I know theres still a long way to go.

    Looks great so far though!

    Terrain looks very well done indeed, i will follow your work with great interest. One question i have is how will the pathing in Minas Tirith work? by the looks of you from the screnshot you have to use portals or it will be very small corridors to get higher up

    The base terrain looks amazing, you can clearly see and recognize everything. I would just like to suggest that you add a bit more shrubbery, rocks, houses and other small doodads to fill in the gaps, as they do look a bit empty. Other than that great work!

    NEW VERSION https://www.epicwar.com/maps/293506/

    Yes you right, for now I am using portals, but I think I will make corridors later , because I don't like the special effect portals makes and I didn't found how cancel it.
    Working on it ...) thank you) new version is out, fixed a lot of stuff, made some balance, I'm still working most on the terrain and units looks ... balance, ggod balance will come later ...(
    Thank you for suggestions ! I will add other environments soon... as you say ... it is very time consuming thing to do, because I'm trying make it beautiful and not casual trees and rocks here and there ))
