After a long time of searching, is there really nothing valuable in Moria?
As an alternate solution, there should probably be a max on how much any one faction can afford to front to you, based on how well they're doing in the war. If they're getting a shellacking then they wouldn't have the materials to spare to anyone not their own, no matter how beloved. And even the most well to do group should probably have limits to how much materials they can make available to any one commander.Bearcup said:Problem: too much cash with the "big" fractions in the south (related to "no end" and "south to weak/north to strong")
Bearcup said: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?
Yes please. If you can, upload it somewhere and PM me the link.
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
We know, it's being worked on.
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!
Might happen, isn't too high a priority.
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 ....
Not sure about the exact solution, will be addressed.
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.
It is possible, it just takes more effort and time. I'll think about it.
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.
Not sure about this, coders would know.
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
UBERMANN said:Well, its a mix of errors that happen. Sometimes in the middle of battle I get a vertex buffer error, sometimes when starting a battle or even in the middle of a battle I get a runtime error which closes the game.
Its really annoying now, its basically playing russian roulette when I try to fight anybody because there is a really good chance that I'll crash.
But I'm sure its not my system, I run the game fine at a good 100 fps if that counts for anything.
