Warg Rider

Author File Description
Celer
File Details
Version: AoM: The Titans
=======================
Warg Rider Version I
=======================

Author:Celer
Version:AOM The Titans

Description: This mod changes the textures of the normally boring fenris wolf to the Warg Riders of Isengard in the movies "The Lord of the Rings".
It also adds a unit that is riding the wolf. A Version II of the Warg rider(actually I changed the name --- Wolves of Isengard) has been submited. That version includes a new unit with sounds and new textures

=====================================================
HIstory
=====================================================

The Wargs or Wild Wolves are a race of fictional wolf creatures in J.R.R. Tolkien's books about Middle-earth. They are almost always in league with the Orcs or Goblins whom they permitted to ride on their backs into battle. The Wargs speak a rudimentary language of their own. It is probable that they are descended from Draugluin's werewolves of the First Age.

In The Hobbit, the Wargs appear twice, once in chasing Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, and the dwarves just east of the Misty Mountains, and once at the Battle of Five Armies. In The Lord of the Rings, they are most prominently mentioned in the middle of The Fellowship of the Ring, where a band of Wargs, unaccompanied by Orcs, attack the Fellowship in Hollin.

'Warg', like many words used in Tolkien's works, is an actual archaic Old English word meaning a large wolf. It has cognates in other Germanic languages such as Old Norse, where it is usually spelt with a "V" (i.e. "Varg"), and is the modern Swedish word for wolf. Because of the translation fiction this must mean that 'Warg' was not the name for these animals in Westron, but rather a translation of the original term.

Wargs also appear in Dungeons & Dragons under the name "worg" (rather than warg).

In Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, wargs appear to be more like hyenas or bears rather than wolves, but it should be noted that Tolkien never actually described a warg beyond stating they were demonic wolves. Jackon's wargs fit that role well, as vicious man-high predators.

If you wish to overwrite the original fenris wolf history, you would find a history
file in this Zip File. Before you put the file in though, make a copy of your original fenris wolf history file

THIS IS NOT A NEW UNIT

Lexus_Reloaded I don't download because I don't want to overwrite my old "boring" fenris wolf.

Make a new unit!

Yea I did make a new unit though I have some trouble with the textures . It sometime replace the "boring" fenris wolf textures. I submited just now, its Version II and its a new unit

Or Lexus_Reloaded if you want to, place JUST only the anim in your AOM directory, this won't change the "boring" fenris wolf's texture but only add a unit on top of it-I think, I never tried it-It should work though

EDIT: Thanks to extinction, I manage to correct it
EDIT: Not anymore. I need help!

Lord_DiGangi Your description did interest but me but the mod it self was not to good, the textures are very simple blots of paint, the unit animation file is very poorly made and he is not a new unit. If I were you I would read more guides on modding. No offense though, but still keep modding :)

Sorry but...
* HORRIBLE texture

* Not a new unit

* basic anim editing

Additional Comments:Please don't take this harshly. I simply think that you should keep modding to get better, because right now you're not very good.

Of course I'm not good man. i just start modding yessterday! You think I'll be a expert in a single day. I mean I don't mind your "HARSH" rating

BUT U shouldn't give me a 2 because its not a NEW Unit

I just follow everything waveslave wrote in the guide. Which is basic anim editing. Just don't download second version yet. It's a new unit but almost as terrible texture. I use paint cause. And something is wrong with the anim and texture. i think I submited it by accident, i don't know. Could you tell me where to get a good painting program? Paint is terrible!! It screw up my first MOD!!!(this one)
It's not a new unit cause when I start modding, which was yesterday, I started texturing first. So I submit the first one done

I still think the head looks like the warg distinctly. If you look closely

(also could be found on the bottom of the file)

Please Review(only if you're gonna give me a high rating or else put down suggestive comments that are as detailed as a review) or comment

and......

Did you actually download this unit or just look at the screenshots? If you don't like it when you see the screenshots, why did you even bother to countinue instalation? And if you didn't install but just look at the screenies, don't rate!

and.......

Unlike you who got photoshop, I just start modding and have to use PAINT. I could make great textures with photoshop too you know. Anyone can.

auron 2
the textures are kinda bad. I used MSPaint to make my mods as well. The only thing i would suggest is:

1). download GIMP for free(for more info contact Dnas, the GIMP salesman;))

2). copy/paste textures of other units to generate a one new texture using MSPaint

I dont think it matters whether the mod was created using simple editing, or whether this was a new unit or not. not every mod has to be a new unit. So there is no reason to give Celer a 2 just because it wasnt a new unit.

lol you better edit that last part on your description celer.

How do you copy/paste other textures Auron?
And Auron, what last part of my description do I need to edit?
Which part? Ithink the last part is okay

Description: This mod changes the textures of the normally boring fenris wolf to the Warg Riders of Isengard in the movies "The Lord of the Rings".
It also adds a unit that is riding the wolf. A Version II of the Warg rider(actually I changed the name --- Wolves of Isengard) has been submited. That version includes a new unit with sounds and new textures

PS: Is dnas really a salesman
