MiddleEarthProject is a full conversion Tolkien mod for Crusader Kings 2 which will feature bookmarks throughout the Third Age. This mod is being developed independently from any other LotR or Middle Earth mods out there. The map will cover the main areas of Middle Earth, known in the books and films.

So, Middle-Earth is waiting for you! Will you play as the descendant of one of the noble families of Rohan or Gondor?
Will you try to reforge the ancient kingdoms of Elves in Eriador? Or will you try to destroy all the Free Peoples, and claim Middle Earth for Morgoth?
This mod will give you a unique strategy experience of the Third Age in Middle-Earth. From Forodwaith to Bellakar, from Lindon to Rhûn, lead your dynasty and survive the Dark Times. Become one of the most important Lords of the Age!


INSTALLATION GUIDE
1/ Download the mod, and open the .rar file with Winrar or any similar software.
2/ If you've got a former version of the mod, remove it entirely.
2/ Extract MEP 0.1.5b in your "Documents/Paradox Interactive/Crusader Kings 2/mod" directory (NOT directly in the game folder)
3/ Launch the Game, and enjoy!

IMPORTANT ! The current release is a BETA version, with bugs, and obviously not complete !

The mod runs on the CK2 2.2 version, if you updated to the 2.3 version (Way of Life) it won't work. :)

Just read a bunch of threads saying you can't go back to a previous version on Steam, will this ever be compatible with 2.3?

THank you so much. I looked at the properties already but had no idea what I was doing there... but it still doesn't open for whatever reason. I guess I'll go back to the FAQ.

I just realized I downloaded 0.3.1 instead of 0.4.1 so I'll let that start downloading then go to work. I'll update whether it works or not when I get back.

If you have windows, go to Computer-Local Disk(C:)-Program Files-Steam-Steam Apps-Common Then RIGHT CLICK Crusader Kings II Then left click properties. A thing will appear. Then go to previous versions (At the top) and select a version from there

this won't work if you played the mod on the 2.2 version and a blue screen of death appeared shortly after you started-for me it wiped all previous versions

I think when the war of the rings starts that every character[leader of a county,duchy,kingdom,empire not the vassals] with the trait "Guardian of Middle earth" should have a event pop up if they wanna join the war with Gondor againts Sauron,and that also includes the "Corrupted by the Darkness" trait,if they wanna join with Sauron againts Gondor it would be more realistic that way

This mod is a work-in-progress. All the same, it is very good. Being able to role-play with characters from the Tolkien Legendarium at the same time as I engage in grand strategy is great. Being able to add one's own flavour to Middle Earth's history is something I think is truly rewarding. The modder has gone into a lot of detail to make the base game fit the specifications of Arda and its history what with all the intricate family trees that are unnecessary but oh so lovely. There is room for…
