And for the very end, it's worth repeating again TLD is primarily based on Tolkien's books, not on Peter Jackson's movies. So no need to ask about plate armour, uruk-hai crossbows, odd elven blades and other movie inventions.

We will be deleting/ignoring comments/questions that are flaming, rude or about LOTR movies stuff, Warband, bugreports and tech support. These have all been addressed in the manual and forums a million times before.

Has anyone made a mod for this game yet? I remember seeing the balance mod somewhere, I even downloaded it, but I never got around to try it. Let us know if you have a thread somewhere for modders to showcase TLD add-ons.

Not at all. Alive and breathing. Just waiting on a certain guy to fix the AI Formations for Warband.

I f you meant for adding more content, that's up to you, it's open source now. Game is complete. Just waiting on fixes for AI Formations.

Anywhere we can go to, to keep our game up to date with the latest nightly? I keep referring back to OpenXcom because I want all of you to play it! No, the reason is, because they have a nightly system too, the only one I know of myself, and they have a go-to page with the latest nightly and all the old ones.

Please let us know. I wanna make sure I have the latest.. Also hope saves are compatible.

Also saw that Micmac2 reported the same issue I had. He explained perfectly, which I always need to go into a long blah blah to explain things.

From Micmac2: "Another issue is that when you're camped in a besieged city, the besieging armies don't all arrive as one. They show up one army at a time, which makes siege defence pretty easy. Can't remember if this is what it was like in Warband Native, but i don't think it was like that..."

Both. Aside from fixing the crashes and the dreaded save-corruption, Swyter has included all the nice visual add-ons he created for TLD (i.e cloud shadows, flow shaders on rivers, wavy banners, etc).

Cool thanks for the Nightly. Openxcom does nightlys too, very nice idea for updates before putting out the next official update.

This mod is utterly incredible! Everywhere I look I see the four years it took to make this world. From the orcs to the elven armor. The detail is staggering, every scene lovingly crafted, almost every armor textured to perfection. +5 The mod is well balanced and the immersion is total and complete. It immediately reminded me of an Elder-Scrolls Lord of the Rings game. +5 Now sadly there are the bugs. Several quests are broken and some of the enviromental textures (elven bridges and Gondorian stone…

Great graphics side(excepts from some minor issues like terrible Isengard buildings), new shaders (windy flora!) bus scripting siede is comeplatly failed compared to that what dev team promised. Gameplay becomes booring too soon.
