I hit the spot (lvl 41 day 227), where you can't load the game anymore. I have a save game 10 days away from the crash. Still needed?
Thank you for the podcast and all the explanation.
I restrict my feedback and my wishes to the things which were not mentioned. I hope that doesn't my posts sound negative or arrogant, it may even sound (and sounded in my previous posts) harsh, but that's your fault : P When you make such a great game and we all fell "in love with it", sure we get "emotional" when stuff doesn't work! ^^
Problem: No End (jeah ... i know, you mentioned it in the podcast)
Solution: 1. enable Sieges for players (above level 30? after day 100?) 2. enable the command to bring a fraction leader to start a siege 3. make the crusade more aggressive
Problem: the availability of good items
Solution: please implement some sort of upgradesystem for items. you enter a city/fraction the first time and see the masterwork bow that you always wanted ... but you can't afford it. 40 visits later you start to cry why the bow hasn't shown up EVER AGAIN!
Problem: too much cash with the "big" fractions in the south (related to "no end" and "south to weak/north to strong")
Solution: implement some sort of cash sink, like a shop where you can buy the masterwork pieces guaranteed (for very high prices) or an upgrade system. also possible would be some "soldier improvement"system, where you can ask for better equipment for your soldiers. an economic system beyond that would be too much, especially when you think about the background and that the currency is reputation ....
Problem: there is no practicable possibility to raise ones reputation with imladris (my start fraction) or other small fractions in the north (partly related to "north to strong")
Solutions: either bind no real event towards the own fraction (prefer the one with the highest rank) or give (a reduced) reputation bonus for the very own fractions when there is no fraction involved. Both would be okay, in terms of story telling. Either the hero leaves his home to help the allies (in the south ^^) and gets famous and rewarded there, without anyone knowing back home or he is the hero of his nation officially send to help.
Is it intended when station own troops in a city that you can only withdraw them, when it is the home fraction? I trained dozens of the best gondor archers to leave them at endangered cities to see that the one soldier from imladris that i stationed there could be withdrawn without any problem in contrast to the archers.
Thank you anyway for posting the podcast. Thanks for the developers (if its somebody else) for making such a great game and for there constant work on it. I hope that helped more than it tired (or confused. I'm German, maybe my syntax is a little bit of
If there is a new patch which fixes the hole "missing end" problem, I'm gonna play TLD again for sure : D
