Dev blog – Last Alliance: TW – Alpha v0.1.6

Mae govannen!

At the beginning I would like to apologize that from few months I didn’t publish here any new article about progress in work on mod. Well, you can say that I’m lazy because even I didn’t publish article when v0.1.5 has been released month ago… >.<

Anyway, the next patch will be not too large, but it’s just a stop on the road to next large update (where probably you will see elves, I hope ^^). Main goal of v0.1.6 it give you more lands in Middle-Earth to play on them. You will not find new playable cultures, but Numenorean and Haradrim will receive some changes.

Main changes in Alpha v0.1.6:
– 20 new provinces in Gondor, Enedwaith and Calenardhon (later Rohan)
– New armor for Nizar (Haradrim Black Snake Clan faction leader) (thanks Edred for great concept)
– New armor (still WIP) for Ikrimah (Haradrim Golden Lion Clan faction leader) (thanks Edred for mask concept)
– Nizar and Ikrimah now have own bodyguards (avaiable in campaign and custom battle)
– More variants of movemment animations for spearmen with shields by CherJair
– Some new building icons (for Numenorean) by Mareon
– New campaign settlement models for Haradrim
– Changes in economy – now some buildings basically generate less wealth, but other building can increase it
– Unplayable Wildmen factions in campaign (avaiable in custom battle, but it only few units – so I suggest to not play as them)

So, in Alpha v0.1.6 you will have campaign map with 72 provinces – it more than Shogun 2 vanilla campaign. Here you have map with marked avaiable lands:

About changes in economy, I have to test how it works now + I want to expand it in next patches – I hope that this system will be works good (atm, I found one bug, for some reason local bonus not working, but I will try fix it). Here you have example how it works:

+ Here you have some additional screenshots and one video:
