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.

Are you going to continue making this mod or you have finished it?

I really wanna finish the ancient spears quest for dales. That's the last one left, I think, because I've already done major quests for every good faction. Someone tell me what I need to do to progress. Read my posts below. Thank you.

I found this in your bug forum:

"There's also some kind of "find these legendary spears in Erebor" quest I was given (as a dwarf) by King Brand of Dale; there seems to be no way to complete it. The Dwarf King gives you permission to search the mines, but there's no option to actually do so that I could find. If this is one of those never-finished quests like Mithril in Moria it should probably just be removed."

Dev: Did you get the dev/debug version? Because that quest shouldn't be available in the release version. There were plans to finish it, I think there was even a scene for it. Probably more of an unfinished feature than a bug.

Thank you for your list. :)

Holaaa. Va aver otra actualizacion para este gran Mod?

Actualization as in a big update? They're only going to fix bugs and add bits here and there. Nada gran. The game as it is now is complete and they released the source code to those who want to add stuff themselves as the dev team has gone into hibernation in the lonely mountain and the current dev is only fixing bugs. Maybe he's secretly working on porting SW:C.

Also, when Gandolf aproatched me on his white horse, I didn't have a head. At least this time he wasn't bald :)

Lastly, I would like to know what the known limit for war parties are on the map in the compatibility tweak. I want the maximum amount of war parties out for me to find.

I'm playing as Dwarves and I really love them! I found a problem though.

I'm helping King Brand of Dale with finding some ancient spears and got permission from King Ironfeet to enter the Lonely Mountain, but in the small dungeon I first go into within Erebor, I reached the dead end steel fenced door that says "Location to somewhere" I keep clicking F to enter and I cant go through. I can't even get out of the place. Maybe I should check for enemies,, hmm I should I thought I that. I'll be back. Also the spikes in the entrance kill you instantly and I gotta quit the game to leave the dungeon. Also the sound of spikes killing you is super loud, beware.

Are you guys going to fix the annoying bug where the first couple of fetch quests involve going very far distances to deliver mail? I would like more unique points for those missions to buy unique items.

Also I'm wondering if you guys fixed the issue with weapons not appearing in specific areas in shops.

Lastly, I hope you guys fixed the problem when multiple enemy armies are besieging and they're not assisting the first enemy army that assaults you while defending. They each go in one at a time, not epic indeed :( You know when it says so and so "has joined the enemy side", because they're really close by.

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.

So, we've finished fleshing out T.co now it should be even cooler and easier to use. Pretty subtle changes, too. :)

@iPauleh Nope. Just if coming from the standalone TLD 3.3. Switching between nightly patches should be okay savegame-wise. :)
