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 !

got a question/suggestion, can u maybe add an option to help any faction that are the same side as you (guardian of middle earth/corrupted by darkness )in defensive wars because like as erebor dale one time didnt ask for aid and i couldnt help them and they got taken over, then when men led a revolt i couldnt help either so i declared war on rhun (the faction now owning dale) to try to destroy some of their forces but then the people in the revolt were hostile and attacked my armies wipping them out! oh and elves r way too op attacked galadriel (25 martial, 20,000 evles) with dain (35 martial, 50,000 dwarves) and got slaughtered, i mean there should be a difference but i dont think it should be tht much between elves and dwarves

and maybe make ai factor in combat modifiers when they want to attack ect. think it takes away from the game when mordor goes into a battle with barely more orcs against elves and get slaughtered. they should gather like ten times the number first!

Is the mod working with 2.4.4 yet? The 2.4.4 update changelog stated only one small change to prevent the program from entering an endless loop during saves. Its strange that the mod isn't compatible with 2.4.4 considering that the update only changed little of the code.

The Mod is oustanding! I want to thank to all the team for this. And though it is still in beta and has some bugs it's so awesome. You have done a great thing here!

The FAQ recommends 'Old Gods' and the start menu says 'Charlemagne' for a scenario AND the main page lists 'Way of Life' and 'Horse Lords' as integrated features...
So what DLCs do I need to play this as the developers intended?

Great mod. Only one problem... Why cant the hobbits colonize? no hobbit empire? I had a great thing going.

The king mayor of the shire tries to imprison frodo to gain the ring to use it to create the hobbit dominion. However, Frodo evades the guards sent for him and raises his flag in rebelion. Kings of dunadain comes to my aid against frodo and shortly after gandalf joins as a general for my hobbit army. I win and throw frodo in jail and executes him for his treason against his new Lord Mayor. however the ring is nowhere to be found! and the hobbits refuse to expand!

I've only recently started playing this mod. 2.4.4 is out for CK2, now I am patient enough to wait for updates. I am more wondering, currently I am playing without the 2 latest updates, going back to 2.2.1(I think) for ck2. I downloaded the new updates and it crashes on 2.4.4, I can't revert back to 2.4.3, it isnt on the list of beta's, so how do I play the new updates?

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…
