The Lord of the Rings The Battle for Middle-Earth: Return of Shadow. Return of Shadow takes BFME to new heights with 17 factions being released gradually that cover the many armies and cultures of Middle-Earth. So far there are 6 factions Lorien, Dunland, Rohan, Gondor, Mordor and Isengard with the rest to follow over time. Return of Shadow allows you the unique opportunity to fight with many of the armies of Middle-Earth in strategically enhanced combat fighting on a scale not seen before in BFME. The inclusion of many, many new maps brings you to places in Middle-Earth not just the famous locations but the secluded ones as well. The fate of Middle-Earth is in your hands

In a future time perhaps, will you consider making a Fortress version of Dol Amroth?? or adding the fortress maps from the original game or creating a few by yourself?

I'm not a fan of most Fortress maps which is why they are so rare in this mod.
There are some in the books for the future but they aren't a priority.

Is it possible that Linhir isn't finished. Because when I played it I noticed that the left side of the map didn't have any kind of buildplot, and the city too. Besides I think that there is a issue with the skydome (or whatever that blue dome is). Anyway I must say that your mapping skills are awesome.

What I always thought would be a cool idea for fortress maps would be if certain parts of the fortress could actually be captured such as the gate or a certain area like in say Minas Tirith each ring could be an area that could be captured. I feel like this would prevent the defenders from simply being beaten back after theyve breached the first part and destroyed half the building in it. However I feel like with something like this wall and gate hp would need to be higher as well as more starting resources for the attacking side.

It would be especially great because that would mean you could actually have a lot of the battle happen within the city which would be really effective for a place like dol amroth or a rebuilt osgiliath.
