I'm going to try and make a Weathertop map, from the Lord of the Rings Book 1. I'm going to base it on the film version though, as this is probably what most people will have seen. The map will include the whole of the hill, and some surrounding areas, maybe a few marshes (there are some in the book). I'm also going to add sound effects round the map, like ringwraith shrieks triggered in various places, or Frodo going "put it out you fools" from the film. Any help will be extremely welcomed, both advice and assistance.:)

I have considered making this map many, many times. I even gathered a ton of reference material, which I will have to dig-up if you want to have a look.

If you can, I would advise you to make your own skybox (save's making endless amount of terrain to give the illusion of distance), custom textures and game models for the statues in the centre.

Good luck,

I've once tried this, but found it very hard at that time. That time was around a year ago.

I suggest making a day and night version. The skybox should be fairly easy as there's not many mountains in the distance, or anything else that would have to be included except land-scape.

Good luck, and if you need help, just ask.

If there's a way to activate a sound file when a saber is lit in a certain area, that'd give you the perfect spot for that "Put it out" sound. :P

The night time version will be easier as you can use a dark fog to obscure the edges of the map without having to build loads of terrain.

And you can do that sound effect with a TRIGGER_MULTIPLE, as there is an option to trigger it only when someone uses a weapon and is within the trigger in the spawnflags.

Thanks for all the advice! Any help, even actual practical help, would be very welcome, because I'm not that experienced at mapping :) I will be taking screens from the film and recording sounds from it, and also using easygen for the basic terrain. I think I will do some of the surrounding areas, like the Midgewater Marshes (in the book).

Here's some screenshots of the terrain I'm doing in easygen: By the way, if anyone wants to help, what I really need at the moment is textures and models(eg, the statues), as I am not very good at modelling anyway. Anyone who helps in the slightest will be given credit when I finish the map:)

Wow, the terrain looks nice. But if I remember correctly, there was a ledge around the mountain, or most of the mountain, where they put up the fire. You may want to add that.

Edit: Oh wait, I think I see it.
