Lord of the Rings Units

Post by Matalahy »

Hey there,
Over the last months I've created some units LotR-inspired. Most of them have motion pictures as well.
I'll continue to work on this units. My plan is to create (step-by-step of course) the following factions:
Eriador (wip)
Gondor (almost finished)
Rohan
Dwarfes (wip)
Elves
----
Mordor (wip)
Isengard (almost finished)
Gundabad (wip)
Rhun (wip)
Harad (wip)

I'd be glad to get some feedback outta the community. Have a nice eve :)

Hallo Leute,
In den letzten Monaten habe ich einige HdR-inspirierte Einheiten erstellt. Die meisten sind im Spiel nicht statisch, sondern mit kompletten Bewegungsabläufen.
Ich werde weiter daran arbeiten und hier die Fortschritte posten. Mein Plan ist, (nach und nach versteht sich) die folgenden Fraktionen zu erstellen:
Eriador (in Arbeit)
Gondor (fast fertig)
Rohan
Zwerge (in Arbeit)
Elben
----
Mordor (in Arbeit)
Isengart (fast fertig)
Gundabad (in Arbeit)
Rhun (in Arbeit)
Harad (in Arbeit)

Über Feedback von euch würde ich mich sehr freuen. Euch einen schönen Abend :)

Hi,
just a reminder that Lord of the Rings is copyrighted material; as such, content derived from it isn't allowed on our add-ons server (we can accept only public domain, GPL or CC stuff). If you want to distribute a LotR add-on, you'll have to do that in other ways.
Current maintainer of these add-ons:
1.14: The Sojournings of Grog, A Rough Life, The White Troll (co-author), Wesnoth Lua Pack
1.12: Children of Dragons

There is a UMC along these lines. You might want to co-ordinate with them. (I don't remember the name they're using and could not find the thread.) They went through this issue and scrubbed their work to avoid problems. I don't know but I'd be surprised if they wouldn't like a little help.

You'll want to be sure your work does not use the same names due to possible trademark issues. That includes your file names. Book titles, place and character names and even abbreviations can all be problematic.

You can free-hand draw images from your own imagination, but copying, even hand-drawn copies, from such things as package or book art, movies, and stills from movies, can raise copyright issues. This includes using actor's faces (due trademark issues). In some cases even simply using a specific color or color schemes can raise trademark issues (but I'd be surprised if that happened here).
I forked real life and now I'm getting merge conflicts.
