The Siege of Barad-dûr V.1.1.c

Submitted by Jack_Sparrow93
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Description

This is my first cinematic I've ever made and I am quite happy with my result. The map is about "The Siege of Barad-dûr", when the last alliance attack Mordor to destroy them once for all. After a hard and tough battle Sauron was defeated, by Isildur, and lose his ring.

I have made all voices in the cinematic myself and Saurons voice is the only one I edited in a program (cause it sucked ^^).

    My Ratings Value:
    5/5 for Perfect
    4/5 for Really Good

    1/5 for Bad

    15 - 20 for Perfect
    10 - 15 for Really Good
    05 - 10 for Bad
    00 - 05 for Horrble

    Story:-
    Quests:-
    Combat:4.5/5, The Combat was Acceptable, yet maybe make the orc units die faster,Maybe add some special effects etc.
    Sounds/effects/skills:4/5, There was voice acting, yet i think you need to find more people.There is also Lotr music.
    Terrain:2/5,The terrain needs a lot of improvements.
    Text:3/5,Well....You need to change some of the texts, like saurons text+rework his voice, it was really horrible(no offense) and reduce the text duration,they just stay too long.
    Overall:13.5/20, I was surprised by the cinematic and its your first one. Still it needs a lot of improvements! Vote for approval! Good luck!

    Author name is written in World Editor -> Your Map -> Scenario -> Map Description (or something like that (I have other language version, so I`m guessing how is it in english (it`s first in scenario))) ;P

    Wait, Dagorlad was a plain.. And I'm sure it wasn't that close to Barad'Dur, since the battlefield later became the swamp that the Hobbits and Gollum traverse to reach Mordor.

    Point to u, thought it was somewhere outside the black gate...

    I changed the maps name and fixed some minor things. In this weekend I will look some more on the terrain!

    Anyways, good work so far. You're right though, it was very close to the Gate. Dagorlad was actually the last major battle before the battle with Sauron. So +1 for you! (+Rep!)

    Ok i have just watched that cinematic and think that it is very well done although the terrain looks nothing like in the movie (but close enough).

    I have noticed something: when Sauron kills those soldiers, half of them die in mid-air and remain there blocking the view.

    Also if you have a model of the Ring you should make it drop from him when he dies

    Anyway i will give your cinematic: 1 for terrain, 2 for the battle and its effects and 1 for the music and sounds. overalll: 4/5:thumbs_up:

    Ha ha, thx!

    If u have any suggestions wich ground texure I should use, then pllz share.

    Yeah, sometimes that happens, around 20 % of the times so u had bad luck ;) Dunno how to fix it really, I could increase the range the units fly, so u cant see them anymore.

    I have thought of that, maybe in a later version.

    Thx for comment and raitings!
