Not only does it stop there though, but a brand new Dunedain faction shall be added with never-before seen units and structures and powers!
Also, a whole new campaign shall be added for the celebration of the Hobbit movie with unique units and strructures only to be seen within playing the campaign... Play through the story of Bilbo of the finding of the One Ring and the desolation of Smaug!
Finally, a whole new expansion mod shall be added taking you back to the 1st Age and going through the war of the Silmarils and the evil of Morgoth by introducing 4 brand new factions!

It's been a while since I last posted news, but now that I have some it seems only appropriate to say so. Indeed, both the Black Numenoreans' and the good factions' buildings are finished, bar animations and putting in game. You can see a demo of them below:


I have also recently rewritten and remastered the previous "Westernesse" theme, which can be found here.

However, at this point, I have a problem. What do you guys think the good and faithful Numenorean faction should be called? At the moment my choices are either Dunedain or Elendili, so I'd love to hear what your preferences and/or own suggestions are for a name.

I want to know wich step of development is this mod right now, and if you are thinking to abandon it please dont do it, I offer you my help to keep it going, there are very few mods about quenta silmarillion, and you can make something really BIG for the bfme community :)

There's a reason why there are so few mods in that range: they're just too big. I mean, we've already abandoned it for separate projects because, whilst on the face of it you might say 'oh, how hard can it be?', it is really quite difficult to sustain motivation, more than anything. Making mods is one of the most time-consuming hobbies you can have, and keeping it up alongside employment and education is nigh on impossible. I'll be honest, I have been struggling with this combination for a while, plus intense social and emotional problems. I couldn't start again if I wanted, and keeping Westernesse going is a hell of a strain on my time. So, doing something really big isn't a priority at the moment or near future.
