Description

A submod for Third Age 3.2 that adds: -- A new Area of Recruitment system => many new AOR units and faster recruitment in home regions, slower recruitment in foreign regions -- 4 new factions -- TONS of new units -- much improved unit balancing -- completely reworked building tree


AOR mod 2.3

Well met fellow players, today I'd like to present you my submod for Third Age 3.2, based on the excellent FROGS by David93, and in turn on many of those mods that FROGS is based on

What does this do that vanilla Third Age 3.2 doesn't? The features in a nutshell:
- a new Area of Recruitment system has been added, now most militia and noble units can only be recruited in a factions home territory, only professionals and semi-professionals can be recruited everywhere, also there are many more units specific to certain regions - check the region and barracks buildings for information if any special units can be recruited in a region
- 4 new factions (dunland, lorien, ered luin, anduin vale)
- a massive number of new units, many of them AOR units
- new regions
- complete rebalancing of all units in the game, see this thread for a general idea how they are balanced
- the most excellent AUI mod has been added, credits to cedric37
- completely rebalanced building tree
- dunland, harad and rhun get their own cultures
- better balancing of the factions on the campaign map - it often will happen that by as late as turn 70 no faction is getting the upper hand (if the player isn't doing just that of course)
- the Heirs of Isildor mod has been added, credits to Smoesville
- some other minor changes

installation instructions:
- copy the content of the aor folder into the third age folder and agree to replace all files (if you are NOT asked to overwrite files, you are doing it wrong!)
download and install patch 2.2 the same way
patch 2.3:
Mediafire.com
(attention: if you want to complete an earlier campaign of my submod, delete the map.rwm file IN THE FILES OF AOR 2.0 AND THE PATCH before you copy them over the old version!)

IMPORTANT, if you are having CTDs when starting a battle:
please delete descr_geography_new.db and descr_geography_new.txt in your data folder
if that doesn't help:
turn off the automatic daylight savings, this is a vanilla bug that is causing trouble for some people

to-do list for future versions:
- fix any CTDs that people might discover
- some 8 units are dummy units right now (you will notice when you play Arnor), they work and are coded in, but have placeholder models

enjoy and please give feedback (screenshots of the campain map are especially welcome) :)

To all who are asking how to install,where and fdosfdjgfhk,this could be solutions. First,U MUST HAVE MEDIEVAL 2 KINGDOMS EXPANSION,Second, u must have installed TATW 3.0(third age mod)part 1 and 2,and the patches 3.1 and 3.2,Third,u must be sure the TATW mod works,and finally, u must cut/copy and paste the AOR mod into the TATW mod folder(be sure that AOR mod has merged with the TATW mod by agreeing to replace all files) and that would be it,if u have any question,ask me.

Yes, so straight into my TATW-Folder then? Simple as that? And then Overwrite everything asked for? No pre-made map?

yea,becouse AOR what it does is add units, factions,settelments....so if u put the folder AOR into TATW and overwrite,what the AOR is overwriting/adding is troops,factions and blablá in the corresponding TATW folders.(the prob is that u want to unstall the mod and theres no unstall archive,that can be a problem xD)
