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.

I'm looking forward to play the patched TLD soon;)
I've also got one quick question - are you going to give the dwarves some more love? I think that they equipment could be a bit more varied and badass especially when it comes to 2h weapons :) Don't get me wrong, they are fine, but the "good" is the worst enemy of the "better" if you know what I mean.

Hey there,

Great mod overall, love the attention to detail. Just a couple of irks:

- Battles seem to crash whenever a large host is in them. I've followed what others have said on this page and turned down everything to low (inc battle size). Machine is only a couple of years old and still pretty ok (7870, 8gb ddr3, quad 3.4ghz. Is this a bug?

- Every time I lose a battle my items get beat, and I can never find enough funds to buy a new sword. Been running around naked with a stick for some time hoping my weakling soldiers carry me to victory :(
Would be nice if there were a couple of entry level weapons to buy/loot (paying 300 for a stick is crazy!)

Other than that, no other complaints, keep up the good work!

Scratch #1. Tried the fix in below comment and this seemed to work.

How do you get rid of wounds? seem to be permanently down a point.

Wounds heal over time. (having a healer in the party iirc speeds things up)
Reading the manual usually helps with most issues or questions, btw.

You'll need to install the nightly patch. Grab it from here: Bitbucket.org

Here are the proper install steps:


1) Download the main TLD file here: Moddb.com
2) Download the Warband Compat patch here: Moddb.com
3) Download the Nightly Patch here: Bitbucket.org
4) While that's downloading, read the manual here: Synnaskole.sweb.cz
5) Now that you have all files downloaded, open the main TLD file zip, copy the TLD folder into your Warband\Modules folder.
6) Afterwards, copy the contents of the Warband compat patch you downloaded into your TLD folder. Overwrite when asked.
7) Afterwards, copy the contents of the Nightly Patch you downloaded into your TLD folder. Overwrite when asked.
8) Start Warband, select TLD from the drop down.
9) To see whats being worked on, check out Swyter's Trello here: Trello.com

---That should be it. Note that a patch is currently being worked on, but I do not know when it is going to arrive.

Optional: 10) Have fun!

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.
