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.

Love the mod so much. Im so thankful for it. But I have recommended this to so many of my friends but there so ******* retarded and can't install the thing. is there any really good instillation videos or something. I keep asking them to read the manual but apparently nothing works. If someone could post a link for me just so i can forward instead of typing it all out for them. Im really sorry for bothering you guys with this but I really can't be ****** typing step by step for them.

First, I wanna say....AWESOME MOD....its so good, its all its own game!

Second, I have a suggestion, why not add more options too the game, that tweak the experience, allowing more control over the players game.

Like, allowing for more starting time, before the war starts? (Say between and additional 10 days, too a year) or something such?

Such options are not that difficult to add, maybe after we're satisfied with tweaking other stuff.

Oh, thank you for replying, and since I have you ear, I wanna tell you a few things that I think might help, but if your already addressing these, forgive me.

WARGS...pretty cool feature of the mod, but uh, they are a little...Overpowered...well that not quite the word, more like imbalanced.

When the riders go down, the warg continues to attack, which is cool, but they aren't that dangerous, and they only usually kill a few men, and thats if their are many of them, the thing is, they are WAY too tough. It takes about 10 minutes just to kill a few of them, meaning they are just an annoyance. I recommend a Nerf in hit points, and perhaps a slight increase in charge damage, for balance.

Also, the influence system is pretty good, but getting influence, is a large grind, and it takes way too long to generate the amounts needed to get items, and companions. I recommend a "Rank influence generation system" similar to the Respect point system, in which you generate influence based on your rank (1 at rank 1, 2 at rank 2, 3 at rank 3 etc.)

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.
