After months of studying for exams to enter a university and passing said exams, I have finnaly gotten enough free time to devote to my oldest mod.

The next update will include, aside from the additions listed in the more recent images, an important gameplay change.

-Gameplay changes:

  • Complete removal of the Forged Blades upgrade.
  • Fire Arrows do more damage to cavalry, monsters, Ents, siege weapons and structures only.
  • The Heavy Armor upgrade bonus was reduced from 60% to 40%.
  • Tainted Land and Elven Wood's armor bonus has been reduced from 40% to 30%.
  • A general and parallel reducement of all leadership bonuses.

The motive behind these changes is making the battles less dependant on upgrades and hero leadership bonuses and more dependant on flanking, rear attacks and overall maneuverability of armies and battle tactics.

An important note:

-During the spring of this year I have made a significant progress on the mod and was close to releasing it, however, due to a mistake on my part and the upgrading of the PC I use, the mod files were lost. I do, however, remember the changes I made. These gameplay changes are one of them and they have already been reimplemented.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask me in a comment or a message here on ModDB. Also, for all those interested here are links to the two other mods I have made this year, Warcraft 3 Extended Edition and Rohirim91's Rebalance and Flavour 1.2 submod for the MEIOU&Taxes 2.0 mod for Europa Universalis 4.

Sincerely, Rohirim91.

hey man, i wanna say this Mods looks amazing, sadly i have a problem running it, i have LOTR patched up to v1.06... i installed the mod and it keeps giving me an error that's it not finding the game's .exe file even-thought i installed the mod in the game's directory... the mod keep looking for the game in C directory while i have the game installed in D directory, i never install games on C
any idea how i can make the mod read the game in it's directory at the D drive?

thanks for you help in advance

Right-click the mod's shortcut and replace the paths in Target and Start boxes with the path to your instalation folder.

I Hope this helps.

Are we going to see new unit models from Shadow and Flame or you have permission just for buildings ?

I asked for buildings only, tho the only unit models I would use would be the Wargs and Warg Riders for Gundabad and possibly a replacement of some sort for the current Half Troll model.

ive just installed BFME again after a long time, tried some mods and i have to say that this is probably the best one out there. done by a single person? im impressed.

but there are some ugly soundbugs: "oh no, we have lost a unit. this unit has died" all the time, even if NOTHING happened. that is really annoying, please fix it soon. you can also hear units that arent even on screen, or not even supposed to get heard. also annoying.
evil forces, isengard especially (the wargs, holy crap), seem to be really op. i aint even mad :P

any chance to see AI for the new factions soon? this would really spice up the game a LOT.
thanks for your work

Thanks man! I did it moslty alone with some helpers, regarding art mostly. I will most dearly add AIs for new factions but after i fix bugs and add what needs to be added. About the sounds, its the first time someone complains about them, but i will adress that too.

Cheers!

okay, awesome.
maybe you can ask the guys at the abandoned shadow and flame mod (http://www.moddb.com/mods/shadow-and-flame) if you can get your hands on some of their visual changes (mostly the unit icons). they are top notch, this would further enhance your mod - and promote the awesome stuff that is found in the SaF mod.

I love the custom elven faction! There a few bugs, but nothing that ruined it for me. The invisible barracks was a little annoying though. I just wish the elves would've maybe had some cavalry, and I wish the Rivindell and lorien barracks would've been separate. Overall a good mod and I look forward to later versions! Also I don't mean to be annoying, but if you've seen the new hobbit movie than using the armor that elrond and his riders are wearing for the upgraded elven warriors armor would be…
