ABE: AoM Brg Editor

Over my winter break I was looking for something new to program, and so I set my eyes on the Age of Mythology brg file. While Ykkrosh did a great job with AoMEd, the model exporting/importing is very incomplete. I decided to make my own plugin for 3ds Max that would import/export brgs, and allow you to edit them directly from the interface.  It was the first time I ever had to deal with 3D models in programming, so I was very happy to get some experience with that, and I feel like I learned a lot. This was a very fun project, and you can find out more about it by pressing the image below.

As for some background information on myself, I joined LFS somewhere between 2004-05. I helped Orc Master with his amazing Star Wars mod, and moved on to racing games in 2008, where I began programming applications for them. I am currently studying computer engineering, and am hoping to graduate by spring of 2015. I’d like to close by saying thanks to people like Orc Master, Sir Dundo, Stephen Caines, and Inazuma who have all had a part in shaping my childhood. Cheers!

Legends of Middle Earth… IS RELEASED

Many congratulations to Stephen, his sidekick Lars and others for finishing this project.
Legends of Middle Earth is a merge of Legends of the Third Age and Stephen’s Middle Earth modpack, complete with the Two Towers campaign, plus a few scenarios for The Return of the King and The Hobbit. In addition, you are now able to play standard games against each as the race of Men, Elves, Orc or Dwarves!

On top of the hundreds/thousands of hours put into creating the new units, buildings and levels, there is also a completely original soundtrack. Please note there are also sounds and images borrowed from the movie in order to increase the realism/novelty.

All contained in a zip archive that’s less than the size of a graphics card driver.

So without further delay, here is the link to the file on our server: Fly you fools!

Update: 8th April 2011 – Problems were reported with the download file being corrupted. The above link now links to the file on LFS, which is uncorrupted.

Disturbance in the force

Many apologies to people who have been waiting for Age of Star Wars. Due to unforeseen circumstances (a disturbance in the force), we have to delay the release.
