This is a total conversion for BfME2. As I am a coder and decided not to make this mod public until I have a first Beta to show there are no new models, skins or other textures included. The first beta includes one complete faction (The Empire of Tohrnheim) with all new units (swordsmen, pikemen, shieldmen, musicians, blademasters, archers, crossbowmen, light cavalry, knights, paladins, horse archers and siege machines). This new faction replaces the MotW faction, further releases will replace all other factions and add more, they will also add new special powers and heroes, as right now I only cut the heroes and left the special powers unchanged (except for Army of the Dead, which I disabled). All units now come in bigger batallions (infantry normaly 30 units each, cavalry 15), melee units do nearly no damage to structures and fire only harms wood-based structures (and does nothing at all to walls, towers or fortresses), there is no way to destroy a base without siege... Also naval warfare...
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Battle for Grollins. We love games like Battle for Middle-earth II that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
To thank those who participate in spreading the love and awareness, we have partnered up with many awesome mod-friendly games (Killing Floor 2, Mount & Blade Warband, Space Engineers, Insurgency, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Black Mesa, Contagion, Amnesia - get involved) & have hundreds of keys to giveaway. To win one of the games, after you have linked to a mod on Mod DB (or anywhere else) in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your post. At the end of the week we shall be picking members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of these games.
