Thy very much. good mod. really nice but:

-Maybe every race acess to trebuchet? Othwerwise i think its not balanced.

-Horrible Bug after researching Stonework for Dwarfes. Dwarf-Castle do not fire :-(. Plz fix it very soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-fix the bug that Horses and Ox cost no Gold. Outsch....

-In Tales of middle earth you need to much Workers for lumber, because rate of working is really bad. Why?

-use Paladin Riders instead of new Swan Riders! I think you need not new Unit!

Keep the idea to mix buildings( e.g Dwarf with elves. Angmar with Rohan buildings...) Thats good and it looks different :)

PS: I like the new buildings from Rhun, Harad, Rivendell. Plz release this buildings very soon!!! :) I also saw new Buildings of Rohan. Great :)

Maybe adding Ents and hobbits?

Gondor need a castle or a wonder of Minas Tirith !!!

Don't forget. This mod has the chance to be Mod of the Year 2014!!! :)

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…
