Summary: W3D Files for a new WotR/Living World Map

Well, since this year I don't have mod to release because of time I want to release something for the modders out there. To implement this you will need a lot of maps, coding skills, patience, and time but it is probably some of my best work to get this together.

The living world map is divided into 7 W3D files:

rj1_border - the lines on the map that seperate each territory
rj1_edge - the edges on the map when you move your mouse over the territory
rj1_fill - the fill on the map, when you capture the territory it is colored
rj1_highlight - the highlight of each region that is displayed when it is your home territory
rj1_regedge - the edes on the map for the region
rj1_regfill - the fill on the map when you capture the full region
rj1_seledge - the brighter edge for the region when you select it

At this time I'm not writing an article yet on how to code this all in. (It will be very detailed and complicated, so I just don't have the time right now.) But you will need to do a map for each area that doesn't have one in game.

To give you an idea for where RJ was headed with this:

If you intend to use this in any mod, please give me credit, or I may just have to hunt you down. The amount of work that this takes is absolutely insane, so please respect the time/effort put into this. With the RJ map team we have tried to fill in more and more of the regions. I still have to add screens of maps that have been finished, but if anyone would like to work on the project to fill them all in for RJ we would be most pleased.

As a note - this was done on RotWK precisely because of the improved options available in WotR mode for this expansion. It's one of the primary reasons RJ is for RotWK.

So enjoy, and thank you for playing RJ.

Thanks for this, I see how much work it is, and it's as you say, totaly insane. But things would be even better if you took your time and explained how to put it in, cause when i try game.dat crashes when I go in to the War of the ring menu... :/

Working on all files, then making sure they correspond to others, you have probably suffered to get this, man. Great work!
