I’m sure you’ve all been watching intently, waiting for some kind of confirmation that the long-anticipated LOTR TC was at last coming to Homeworld. Well this is as close to that as you are ever likely to get. Yes… this is the Homeworld Lord of the Rings mod, and I, its extremely proud leader!
Sadly however, the mod is not off to a strong start. The truth is, HWLOTR is in desperate need of manpower. I’m doing the best I can on my own, but O, to shoulder this burden by my lonesome! I wish we had the classic animated emoji of the smiley slamming its face into a wall over and over, because that alone would properly convey my frustrations at being alone in this monumental undertaking.
So, short story long, I’m recruiting.
You may wonder - just what kind of duties am I hoping to delegate? I can happily report that I don’t have much need of coders, since all of my basically non-existent expertise in that field should be more than sufficient. I’m not trying to recruit any texturers either, because after my many years in modding I know better than to expect anyone to volunteer for that. Also, texturers are only needed when there are ship models to texture. The particular content of LOTR frees this mod from any pressing demand for such art assets, to say the least. That being said, it shouldn’t surprise you much when I say I probably don’t need any modelers either…
What I need is people. Plain and simple. Even so, do NOT apply to this mod without very careful consideration, because make no mistake, if you sign on, it’s going to be an uphill battle. You will have to work harder than you ever have in your entire life. Some of you may leave the project totally broken; mere hollowed-out shadows of your former selves. It is even possible that not all of us will survive. That is how hard we will be modding; the Tolkienverse demands nothing less. However, if we can really pull together and do this thing, it is sure to be an achievement the world will remember. Forever.
What say you?
