It looks like your install was corrupted (either from the start, or due to a messed up handling of Voobly - maybe multiple mods?). Anyway, uninstall ToME, make sure you have the 1.0c patch on your AoK, and then re-install. That should work. Let me know how it goes.

The new town centre images are pretty cool! The only problem is the radius around them in which you can deposit resources is so small that the villagers cant walk around in the town centre. This isn't really a major problem at all, but it kinda messes up my start with 6 on sheep, because they can't eat up the sheep inside the town centre.

Also, could you tell me which civilisation can get taverns; the technology supposedly in the town centre(something I saw in the tech tree) ;)

You'll have to adapt to the new Town Centre structure!
The Inns tech you are referring to is bugged - it doesn't show up! It's fixed now, though, along with a host of so many other things it wouldn't have been possible to detect without you guys. Thanks!

Is there any chance that a small trees edition will come out at some point? Because even though the new tree graphics are awesome, it is irritating not being able to see where I'm putting my lumber camp 50% of the time :P

It's not yet on our bucket list, but if you or anyone else desires this asap, why not give it a shot yourself! ;)

It would be kinda of fun to try making it myself, but I don't have clue how to make new graphics for trees :( Especially the epic new ones!

OH. MY. GOSH. :D This makes me so happy that I actually started crying, two of my favorite things coming together, Age of Empires, and LOTR. :') I had no idea anyone was making mods for this anymore, but I decided to look around out of boredom today, and what do I find? This! <3

GameRanger doesn't work like that, all players have to have ToME installed! Try Voobly, which automatically transfers the game files from the host.

Glad you like the mod. Watch out for all the super cool updates (and bug fixes) we are going to release soon!

Excellent game. Units are have amazing detail. I don't like the design of the Elven buildings but hey, that's just opinion. I haven't noticed any glaring glitches. **Just a few problems... After opening the game a few times, it stopped playing 'Lord of the Rings main theme' and replaced it with the standard medley. I suppose that if I reinstalled it, it would work just fine but I'm far too lazy. I noticed that Rohan, as an AI, will build the Hornburg rather than the standard castle for that type…
