    Post Land of Legends released!

    After we've announced Land of Legends a year ago a lot of work has been done, a lot of problems were solved and issues tackled and I'm proud to announce that Land of Legends - Heroes of Loria has been released!

    For the sake of nogstalgia, I'd like to give you a quick tour through the history of the MOD. It was Sphinx and I, back in 2005, who started off with "Chubbyland", a regular map for Sven Co-op. We created a lot of custom content of which only a few fragments remain in Land of Legends today, because we then took a step further to a larger concept of a map series. This is where Goanna joined us and from 2007 and on the project started to see some serious development. Scotsman joined us as our "sounds dude" and helped testing our maps. In November 2008 the MOD went public and January 2009 it hit ModDB. 2009 was a very engaging year, since Goanna left and Katana joined us and we also took a 2 month break from development, making all the difference. I'd like to thank all people who've helped making Land of Legends what it is today. Even though the Half-Life community isn't as big as it used to be, many people stuck with us during the development and I would also like to thank those people as well! The result of years of work lays before you now and I hope you're enjoying it as much as we do!

    Even though SvenCo-op 4.0 has already been released, Land of Legends uses a 3.0 code base. Because of version inconsistencies and new errors, we were not able to make a special SvenCo-op map-pack release, so this release is stand-alone. Once all bugs are worked out of 4.0, we'll also release an update for SvenCo-op!

    So head over to our website and grab your copy! While downloading, why not take a look at our manual to find out about the things that make Legends special! If you like our project, please vote for us in the MODDB Mod of the Year award! Thanks!

    Ah Cool, I'm glad this was completed and can't wait for it to be fixed for 4.0.
    Congratulations on the release!

    Just realised no need to install sven 3.0 to try it out DAMN!

    Well, it seems maps are getting released left and right now I remember playing a rough version of the series a while back. Great work on finishing such a long project!

    And because I never got around to saying so in the other thread, great work to all the other mappers out there.

    Re: Land of Legends released!

    Awesome! We have been waiting for this one.


    I already found a bug though. Since I'm not sure where else to post, I'll do it here:

    - Monster Info (Name/Health) will not be displayed. Thats even when checking the option when creating the server.

    It seems to be, because in the listenserver.cfg the command is listed as "sv_allowmonsterinfo", which does not exist!

    mp_allowmonsterinfo 1 works though!

    Also, is this supposed to be enabled at all? I'd like to, as it was in the teaser videos too.

    No, it's not a bug. We've disabled the monster info on purpose to get a slightly different type of gameplay.

    Ah, alright, good to know! We wondered about that.
    Shouldn't it still be mp_allowmonsterinfo in the listenserver.cfg, or did you add sv_allowmonsterinfo (which is not existent) on purpose, so its not as easy to enable?

    Right. Just install/unpack the Legends package to your Half-Life/ (NOT SvenCoop/) folder and you're ready to go.

    A Christmas release, sweet. Glad to see Legends finally done. This was one of my best experiences, I learned a lot working on this MOD.

    Left4Dead wasn't even released at the time I worked on this mod, so I'd have to say no.
