    Did you know? Some peoples want to recreat the Middl-earth, size 1:1 on Outerra! Well, the article is in French but there is a video: http://www.gameblog.fr/news/40813-video-la-terre-du-milieu-reproduite-a-l-echelle-reelle. Note that article talks about our server!
    And there are certainly some English articles in you search on the web :) . I'im just too lazy to do it myself :p .

    EDIT: Well, there's one here :) : http://www.nerdist.com/2014/01/fully-explorable-middle-earth-modeled-in-outerra-game-engine.

    Think I've already seen this a while ago, pretty cool to see our server being referenced. Wonder if it's still being constructed.

    I'm a bit dispointed because we can only see landscapes in the video. I wonder if they plan to made the cities and fortresses...

    Hmm no I don't think so. This is just terrain I believe because the game engine doesn't make that or something?
    Reminds me a bit of merp for skyrim. So sad they got stopped.

    It's because textures for buildings are way harder to fin were as grasslands and mountains are pretty simple. Also building structures, as I'm sure you builders can attest, is much harder to do well especially in a game engine.
