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 !

We haven't tested for compatibility with Ruler Designer or other customiser DLCs I'm afraid

thats fair enough, that will take a while to do anyway.... yet ive found another little annoyance, ive made my guy a legendary craftsman and i selected the option to find a gem and 100 years later still nothing, he never left the city nothing so that was confusing and the then option to make something never came back either.

If you mean the option "First I need to find a rare gem" it works perfectly fine to me

Once I hit "Play" and it loads I get kicked out. I'm not sure if this is a bug or not.

This is a bug, did you install correctly using instructions in readme?

Also, try launching vanilla and making sure the tutorial popup on main menu has box ticked 'Do not show this again', then try and launch with mod

I installed it the same way I installed other large mods, and they all worked. Unless it is because I used 7zip.

Nos tests n'ont pas été faits sur une si longue période. Nous ne garantissons pas un bon fonctionnement sur du long terme en cas d'utilisation trop récurrentes de la console non plus. ;)
Mais normalement, oui, cela devrait être résolu.

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.
