Return of Shadow Beta 0.27 News Part 2


Part 2 of Beta 0.27 news with some more stuff.

More-dor 4.0 Changes



The Mordor castle gets new defenses replacing the Sentry Towers they get Battle towers instead these are cheaper than the regular versions.

Mordor also gains a new defensive structure for Castles the Bombard Tower, this tower fires off a volley of arrows at nearby enemies.


Dunland 3.0 Changes



Dunland is also getting some changes as part of the Great Rebalancing.


Dunland gains 3 new units: Dunland Spearmen from the Steading at level 2 giving Dunland a new anti cavalry option.
From the Lodge you'll be able to build the new Dunland Axethrowers a new ranged unit that are strong against infantry.
Finally from the Hut you can build the new Dunland Warband a heavy infantry wildmen unit that can be upgraded with Fire Brands.

The Wildmen and Hillmen are getting some improvements as well gaining more health and damage, increased cost.
Wildmen gain a new skill Wild Rush they gain increased armour and speed.
Hillmen gain a new skill Brace which increases armour and knockback immunity at the cost of some speed.

Talbor also gets a new skill Shield Crash he leaps forward crashing into enemies.

Great Rebalancing Part 1


Starting with Beta 0.27 is the first half of the Great Rebalancing a major campaign to readdress balancing for the mod.

First up is the Command Point review all units are getting adjusted generally with Command Points being increased for most units.
As a general rule the new CP balance is:
25 - Orcs and Goblins
30 - Standard Infantry
45 - Standard Ranged, Spearmen and Axemen
Uruk Hai - 40
Cavalry, Strong Infantry,Ranged - 60
Elites - 70-80
Artillery - 20
Rams - 15
Ladders - 10

The tests for these amounts have been pretty good with your starting CPL you can build about 14 basic infantry hordes, 12 for Ranged which is a good amount, enough to launch an attack or defend.

Kine Forest

Another new map being added to Beta 0.27 Kine Forest a 4 player camp map set in the forests of Rhun.

I've big issues to start the mod.
On "From" i've made "C:\Users\Utente\AppData\Roaming\My Battle for Middle-earth Files"
On "To" i've made "D:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm)\lotrbfme.exe" -mod tfa.big

I've anther mod for BMEII, with the "My battle ecc.." on C, and the original folder with lotrbfme2.exe on D.

It should work because i've made them on parallel.
But it just start the original game, and even crash when i try to play a single game.
