« on: February 23, 2013, 10:10:50 pm »

Come say hello! We'd love to hear from you, whether you're just stopping by to see what we're up to, are working on a similar project, or want to contribute to ME-DEM itself.  :)

Hey folks,

I've got no special skills to contribute something usefull to the project, I just registered here to tell you sporadically how awesome the stuff is you do and to keep track with the further development! To start my fanboy-work: The demo you guys released is already quite impressive. Can't wait to roam through Middle Earth when biomes and lakes/rivers are implemented in a later release :-)

Hey, I run the server behind the ME-DEM webmap.  My username on the old forums was Skystrider.

There's a guy asking for the links to the GIS data. No response as yet...

 Anyway, I've been trying to reacquaint myself with the Global Mapper core data...I think I need to do that soon because it's all getting a bit murky as to where all the files are heh. Basically I have two projects which cover almost everything. I've found one of them which covers the terrain export to Outerra. The other one should be all of the shp files. I do have the shp files backed up so in an emergency I could fairly easily reconstruct the project but I'd prefer to locate the working file. I'll have a look tomorrow.

Hello everyone!

Big LoTR/Fantasy fan here.  Just thought I'd hop on your forums to see what all is going on and soak in some of the neatness.

Hi folks, you're all very brave taking on this huge task. Tolkien was at it his whole life! I can't run the demo but the video is stunning. Keep it up. I can't do any modelling but I can do research if anyone needs it. (Big Tolkien nut)

I saw somewhere that the world is dated around the 1600s T.A. is that right? Amon Hen was still in use then, lots of other buildings around too.

Hey boro, nice to meet you. Shame you can't run the demo, it's great fun. Thanks for the offer of helping- we might just take you up on it ;) Anyway, feel free to chip in at any time with anything you think might help.

 Yeh, T.A 1600s. We've still got release the next terrain build which wil make it easier for models to go in.

Hi Yannick, welcome to the forums and thanks!  :)

I think we can give you a map. It would be cool to have you post your tale here as it
happens. I used to do something similar in my "log book".
 What kind of map were you thinking of? I can give you the full ICE map no problem. Giving you a contour map of the very latest terrain version might be a bit more difficult because it requires that I re-import the latest terrain into Global Mqapper, my GIS software. Since the terrain is currently about 1600 tiles, rectifying them individually is a no go. However, we have a couple of other options whcih I'll look into. I need to get the terrain back into the project anyway.
 I won't be able to do it though for at least 4 days as I have a deadline coming up for a terrain I'm doing for a studio.

 Btw, what roleplaying system are you using?
