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.

Playing with cav for the first time in Rohan, I found some more goodies.

1. When I open the tactical screen (backspace key), whether I move the cav maker or not, closing the screen will reset my move order and move the cav marker to my last position. So I can try to set a marker behind the enemy so they can move without breaking Wedge formation, but when I close the screen, it resets my orders and moves the marker back down to me. Only when I set them to "charge", then it won't reset that order when I close the screen. Also to charge with my men in wedge formation, I gotta keep the tactic screen open.

2. I have about 125 Rohan riders with me and I notice sometimes when I'm waiting for them to switch to wedge rank, they will begin to dismount. and the longer I wait before moving out, the more and more they continue to dismount and switch to infantry, making me upset when we're up against a greater enemy. I'm using the battle sizer mod so I have 350 units on-screen at once. The enemy always having more units on-screen than me.

2 1/2. After a bunch of them dismount, the dismounted units will just stand still doing nothing. This happens too many times, but I haven't lost a battle when this happens, because I have the patience to get rid of the left over enemies. To have the least amount of men dismounting, move your men quickly to another area. I think this happens when they're stuck, so they'll get off there horse, correct?

3. When I was battling in front of Minas Tirith, I ordered my men to go south of the map and they ended up crashing into the walls of the city and some couldn't get out of the walls too :(

4. Some faction specific weapons seem to be in the wrong faction.

I'm still here enjoying every bit of the game you created. I now have a save for every faction, save for Dale, but I'm enjoying Rohan the most right now, they're just freaking awesome. I'm always screaming warcries as we're charging closer to the enemy army XD.

first of all, i'm a lone scripter,i never created a mod, but i always "rebelanced" them, if you like middle earth, and you like realism ,this mod is for you.
i will make a list of the features i changed :
every faction have now its own "best" things

- now the dwarfs have the best swords / pikes in the game since
they are miners they have better minerals to create weapons.

- now moria orcs / gundabad have way better armors since they lives in the misty mountains which is full of minerals.

- now the best axes come from lossanarch / beornings since they are woodsmen, they MUST have the best axes.

- now every weapon in the game do less damage, and the armors are way more thick and harder to damage.

- i nerfed the elfs since they were too overpowered , now everything is way more belanced.

- now to kill a orc is not easy like to kill a bee. it takes more time and its way more belanced (also for create a better battle experience.)

- now uruk/uruk-hais are the elite troops of the evil, a uruk equal in power of a elite lothlorien infantry, same for the uruk-hais. (but now they are more less)

- now rohan have the best horses in the game.

(i suggest you to do the backup of the files, hope you guys like it)

rebelance link : Speedyshare.com

you must start a new game for the changes.

I highly recommend that you post your sub-mod in TLD's official forums ( Mbx.streetofeyes.com ), with all your comments/changes there. It'll be more organized, and you'd probably get more comments/feedback. If you can't register, just email Merlkir here: Moddb.com

Khamukkamu Jul 26 2014, 6:38pm replied:

1-2 1/2: All due to Formations AI not working as designed. Should be fixed in the upcoming patch.

3. Perhaps you should provide a screenshot for the devs to fix?

4. This is a known issue, not sure if they'd have time to fix this, but perhaps now that CppCoder is back, he might.

If you really want a challenge, play as an Orc from Gundabad :) Now that is a challenge! :)

Highest Rated (21 agree) 9/10

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…

Lowest Rated (6 agree) 5/10

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.
