Wrong. I like LOTT, but there is too much for me to work on. Please keep it up for now. I can do a lot of your textures, which might be of help to you. (to be quite frank, the current textures look pretty cruddy.)

This is a subgame, not a mod...

And yes, I think people know it isn't dead... (no offense?)

Edit: I know because I am working on it.

If you're working on it, than this message isn't directed towards you :P

I just said this because I know there's probably somebody out here that's wondering : )

Well, this sub-game is slowly growing, and new features are slowly being added. The most recent features that I can think of that have been added are young mallorn trees, a race selector which gives you a special skin and some initial stuff. There have been a couple of other small things added, and a fair bit of code tidying. But, it is very much alive. I'm currently working on adding traders, which should be good. I'm also working on basing lottmobs off of the modular version of mobs redo, so as to remove one mob api from the vast ranks of them!
Screenshots, here's a little album of some I quickly gathered of features in game already: https://imgrush.com/ddc0fc40ebaf

I was thinking about ents. As I recall , didn't treebeard (the ent) have a home? So shouldn't the game lord of the test have ent homes?

I noticed a shared locked door placed by HobbitPower in my garden after I had already protected it. Does he have extra privs?
UPDATE: Never mind, the problem was solved.

Hi firefox!
Thanks for your work! I really like the new leaves and trees, but not so much the wood (and the textures based off those.) I like the current one a lot... The one you made looks a little bit too ... bricky.

I would love it if you could do the same for the other tree and leaf textures!

i used the textures from VanessaE's more trees.
to me the wood looks more like bamboo than brick, but i agree with your standpoint.
i will revert to the old wood planks and only make a new door based on those.

the wiki said that mallors are like birches and more trees is the only mod i know that has birches.
if i find other birch textures i might try them as well.

Okay!

The only problem with using birch textures for mallorns is the LOTT has birches as well as mallorns... However, I'm sure you'll be able to sort something out!

the wood texture reminds me on the decorative sandstone from xanadu, but the colors you choose are great.
i still prefer the edited birch textures for the trunk, tough. because the LotR wiki describes mallors to be like birches, but with a silvery colour.
since Amaz like the old wood texture, why not use that and apply your colour scheme to it?

as for the real birch trees:
no problem. real birches are white with black stripes, while mallorns are silver-grey.
the difference in colour is enough to make each texture unique.

Have you ever seen Lorien? Even in the book, it is an ancient place, with the bark being nicer and smooth... I went more off of the book and movie for the textures.... :/

hmm... i went after a drawing from the wiki. it's supposed to be the official artwork for the books or so.
if i think of the movie i remember blue, but that probably wasn't lorien ...

i tried to made the birch bark more smooth by reducing contrast.
anyway, i will continue and in the end we can just pick the best of each. :)

No problem! Thank you very much for these textures! (I think that this is the first non-default wood textures that I actually like!!)

As philipbenr said, it's probably best to go with the book rather than the wiki...
I actually like this wood texture! It looks very planky, imho.

That's the way to do it best, imo!

In terms of keeping this subgame up-to-date with minetest_game, it is way, way behind. Updating it could prevent problems in the future.

I would very much like to do this... But the problem is twofold. a) I don't have much free time and b) There are things I'd rather work on that this...

I will eventually get around to it (It's been on my mind for some time), but if you want to do it, then you are more than welcome to make a pull request!

This subgame feels laggier than vanilla minetest. To the point where boating feels choppy. Any suggestions on making the experience smoother?

Also does this subgame have working villages? If so, how do I get to them?

No working villages as of now... There are some random spawning structures with habitats generally around them... But that is about as far as it goes.

As for suggestions, I'd you have any extra mood enabled, disable them. Special effects also are a bit heavy at this point, so turning them off helps too.
