Great, anything you need?
To make cartoonish images in GIMP go to Filters-Artistic-Cartoon, you can adjust the settings as to your liking, then I go to Filters-Enhance-Sharpen, to make it look, well sharper.

Yeah, I knew how to do the cartoon in GIMP, but it never seemed to look the same. Maybe its the sharpening...

I love your mod! One of my favorites!
But there are 2 things I changed on it, first, the Elf, it doesnt look good on the worker model, so, I made another one from the Initiate's model, look:



Also, I made the Galadrim's Archer armor shiny silver, and the cloathing purple, like in Lord Of the Rings:



What do you think? I think it looks better.

No, you need more team color.

I gotta agree with modmad. ItThe archer looks great, but from default game camera view, you're going to have a hard time telling which team these guys are a part of.

You might even get away with swapping the purple and the alpha.

Erm.. I didn't change the team color, neither the alpha.
It is exaclty the same, I just changed The armor to Silver, plus, there are AI problems, so you can't really have them in anither team that is not yours...

just wanted to let everyone know that i'm working very hard on the AI problem
this is a great faction i hope i find the problem, so far i looks like tree is the problem, the way it's obtained is strange and i don't think the AI understands it

oh i see :-[
i feel stupid...
i just remembered i didn't fully install the new xmls in elves, that gAMeboy posted
so i got the download off the first post to replace that half-installed one
the AI wasn't running it right so i figured it hadn't been fixed yet
did anyone ever say they had fixed this?
and i wish instead of posting the xmls you(gAMeboy) would install them into the latest download

Wow! this is great, I haven't been active for a while so i didn't see all this.
Thanks archmage101, I was going to remove tree anyway, but thanks for doing it, I really really appreciate it.
And Omega, Nice work. I see you didn't use the image i posted anyways here it is, it has a few other images than just the tech tree image but to use them I think you would have to redesign the whole site so don't bother.

I'm going to be too busy with the glest guide and military (starting back up in late May), so I have no plans to add that inn, sorry.

I'm a bit behind... Is there a new, working version out? If so, I need an easy-to-download copy for testing, this way I can get a GOOD rating in the glest guide.

I've gotta do a few things before I can release it and I haven't the time yet cause I got to study for my exams(just came home from maths btw. I think I'll get 35/100), expect a new version, version 0.9 in may.

That's really nasty. You planning on flunking out of math??? May... bah. Not in time for the Glest Guide... I'll just mark it as 'incomplete' I guess until you release it (trust me, you don't want it marked with a faulty AI).

OT:
You have exams already??? We only have them twice a year (january and june), unless you happen to be a U of S student, in which case you would be done your exams.

just to let everyone know
i've been talking to gAMeboy over PM
i''ve fixed the AI problem and after i work on balance and projectile effects i will release it as version 0.9

the major change from 0.8 to 0.9 is that the tree resource has been taken out
and replaced with wood
the elfs can now cut wood
i've tried to make it more realistic:
elves appreciate nature and they normally don't harm it
so i've made the wood harvesting slow

Acording with the book Eragon, Eldest and Brisingr, elves grom their needs from trees by singing in a Ancient Magical language.
Cutting wood just doest work.
it has nothing to don with elves, is like elves hunting, makes no sense.
Put food!
What is wrong with food.

hmm...
my idea(s):
1) make a new animation for the elf in which he kneels and put his hands in front of him, then sings a song to gather wood
2) how about i use your idea and release both to see what everyone prefers :)

Note: food is used a lot, have any other ideas?

Food is used a lot because is realistic....
if you use it in a cool way it would be different, for example, the Elves plant and Apple tree, and sing to it to get apples, or something like that.

The elves would never harm a tree in the inheritance series (greatest books ever!). Although food wouldn't work well because elves can survive without it I assume (notice in Eragon aria survived gi'lead prisons and quoted how elves only can be killed by blade or spell).

why don't we just take it out
instead of trying to replace it?

I'm just hanging around for a download link.
