Alternately titled "The Lord of the Rings: The Last Days"

A visual conversion of The Last Days of the Third Age, bringing the characters, equipment, and world more in line with Peter Jackson's film adaptions, along with some balancing and gameplay tweaks. Much of the audio has been replaced with superior-quality sounds, and some of the music for battles and towns is taken from the movies. The core of TLD will remain intact to maintain a similar gameplay experience, while removing some of the more overpowered features and changing a great deal of text for consistency.

Additionally, I have included InVain's TLD scenepack, which provides much superior scenes, especially sieges. While I am aware that many of these scenes are less film-friendly than the standard TLD scenes, I feel that the improvements they make on the siege battles are great enough that they overcome the downsides. Perhaps one day I will edit them to be more film-accurate.

Note that this mod is heavily WIP and there are almost certainly going to be bugs (which should be reported here on Moddb as soon as you encounter them)! For now, you may enjoy what is already here, as the game is playable in full all the way to the end of the war for either side, with (hopefully) no game-breaking glitches. I would ask that you please request permission from me before using any resources original to this mod. I repeat, NOBODY IS TO USE THE ASSETS EXCLUSIVE TO THIS MOD WITHOUT MY PERMISSION!

And for anyone complaining that this contradicts Tolkien's books or whatever, I have no intent of using the books whatsoever for reference. My sources include, first and foremost, the movies, then the GamesWorkshop Strategy Battle Game, then any other film-related reference (games, art, etc) and my own ideas. I don't care whatsoever for the books and simply wish to reproduce the look of the movies that I love. This is first and foremost a personal modification, I have simply uploaded it to share with everyone.

Credits to: Blood In The West, Floris Evolved, Gekokujo, The Veiled Stars, and Fred's Bunch-O-Armors for a good number of armors and weapons used in this mod, as well as the basis for my own creations. Third-party credit to the Third Age: Total War mod and its sub-mod, Divide and Conquer, for a bit of concept inspiration. Also would like to extend a big thanks to Jurek over at the Film Armors project for being a good sport and a source of communication and support - please give his mod a look too!

Special thanks to everyone - apparently within 5 hours of uploading this, it is No 1. on Moddb! Really didn't expect this, so again, a massive thank you for all the views!

Good news for everyone who thought the mod might be dead - we're still active! However, I've been so busy recently that little progress has been made, and what little is made is directed more toward bugfixes. Ultimately, I decided it was of best interest to simply release what has been done so far.

Version 0.15 contains bugfixes for 0.1, as well as a number of small changes. Most importantly, however, this release includes completed versions of Gondor's Blackroot Vale and Lamedon factions, Mordor's Black Numenoreans, and a partially completed Harad! There is still a long way to go in the development of Harad, but what you can play in this version is mostly completed, sans a few armors and all weapons. I've also included an early, unbalanced import of Jurek_Darkwolf's Dunedain troops. Their equipment and stats have not been edited heavily yet, so they are likely going to be buggy. However, the Dunedain along with Harad are in my plans for the completed V0.2.

Additionally, players who were having problems with the font and shaders should now be able to play the game due to the shader update included in the currently used Nightly Patch!

So head on over to the download page (once the file has finished uploading, that is) and try it out! Fight as the Men of the South and overcome Gondor, or join the troops of the Fiefdoms and repel the invaders!

FOLLOWERS OF TLD FILM EDITION!

The mod is currently on hiatus, possibly permanently, as I no longer have time to work on this mod. I highly appreciate all of the input and praise you guys have given to the mod in the past, but unfortunately I am busy with other projects.

A day may come when I return to TLD Film Edition, which is why I haven't completely abandoned the project yet. I repeat, THE MOD IS NOT PERMANENTLY DEAD! In fact I find it likely I will come back to it at some point. In any case, I highly recommend you try out the wonderful TLD Overhaul mod, which is still active. If TLD Film Edition is permanently abandoned, I will donate all of my assets to the Overhaul team to use as they will.

Again, thanks to everyone who enjoyed the mod, and even those who didn't, for everything! Without you, I would have given up on TLD Film Edition long, long ago.

P.S. - Keep slaying those Elf scum!

Hey, I was wondering why all the LOTR mods for Warband (except for TLD, who have the book accurate armors) don't merge together. You guys could take the best models from each mod, and the best map, etc and join together. :)
For example, there is a Game of Thrones mod for Total War Attila, named Seven Kingdoms, who was originally two mods, and their developpers didn't want to merge. But they finally did it, and it gave great results!
I understand tho if you don't want to, because you have different interpretations of LOTR, and you don't want to srap a lot of what you created for your own mods, etc. But think about it, and good luck with your mods!

I saw that you had mentioned a fix for the Dunedain sword but were worried about messing things up any way to release a fix with just the texture files for it?

does this mod contain the original last days mod content plus new additions and extra stuff, or is it a completely different project that only shares the same name?
