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 !

Hello
I would like to help you with the mod. I am a lore-master when it comes to the universe of Tolkien, in fact I have never met anyone who knows more about middle-earth than me. I really think this mod has great potential and I would love to participate and make it even better/ more lore accurate. I have studied the universe of Tolkien for 14 years now and I know a great deal about Middle-earth and beyond it's borders.
In case you have any doubts feel free to ask me about anything any time.
I am also the lore-master for several other LOTR mods:

-The Lord of the Universalis (For Europa Universalis IV)
-The Veiled Stars (For Mount & Blade Warband)
-Persistent Middle-earth (For Mount & Blade Warband)
-Awaken Dreams (For Minecraft)

Kind Regards
~ Nicrlaitheking

So, even after downgrading back to 2.2.1, the mod still crashes on the final section of loading. Any ideas on how to get it to work?

I also disabled that learning scenario thing like someone said below, still doesn't work.

I think it works with just the 2.2 not with 2.2.1?

We are working on a new release but we have only a few team members and not much time to work on the mod, a release won't come anytime soon.

It is not dead, but for now you will have to revert to 2.2.1 to play this mod.

It's better that you take you're time to improve the mod then to release a semi-improved update with lots of bugs ;)

Could you edit the requirements so that it's possible to adopt feudalism in the next release ? There is not much point in playing characters that are unable to adopt feudalism. Hopefully the next release which is compatible with CK2 2.3 (and preferably with Way of Life too). Thanks in advance !

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…
