Could you make bridges building that one can build (like the editor only ones)? I reckon that would be really cool - 500 stone per bridge maybe. It would be VERY interesting in battle like rivers/highland.
Player 1: I have defended all my shallows. Let's just keep an eye on them.
Player 2: *Builds bridge across without Player 1 noticing*
Player 1: WTF? Enemies from nowhere? I destroyed all his docks?

P.S. Sorry if you think I'm spamming. I'm not intending to. I just love Lord of the Rings and Hobbit and think this is an amazing mod. I'm just trying to give good ideas.

That's an interesting idea. Might become a bit OP on island and river maps, perhaps! But first, I'll need to check whether it is even possible to build bridges in AoK.

It would have to be available to all realms, although maybe some could spend. 450 stone and 200 wood for a little diversity (I put you in charge of balance though, if I was I'd make Mirkwood O.P. since they're my favourite in ToME and the one I specialise in (Aztecs for non-modded AoC))

My tech trees won't work properly. It shows everything as available unless you read the description and it would be awesome if all the alliances were adjacent to show the advantages of each. And a little more descriptive. Love the Game.

Could u make the ruins where frodo putted on the ring while fighting the infantry nazguls? But not as a 1 building which looks like a wonder, but several ruins which form a circle, like the bridges, parts of ruins from a castle

No!!! The idea of more population slots is HORRIBLE. It's in Age of Mythology and it gets so annoying having to calculate the total population amount, not just the number of units.

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…
