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.

Really enjoyed this game, btw for everyone that thought 'download the improved version of 1.011' was just a suggestion. for me it did not work without it, once i got the improved version it ran like a dream with 400 size battles running smoothly. Great mod love the mix of film and book inspired themes, nice to have some uniqueness to it without throwing too many really cool things out. My only slight complaint is that i only ever fight mordor at a 1-4 ratio, i can do it but i struggled so bad early on, i dont mind a challenge but having a full 50 strong army of mounted knights get outrun by four hundred marching Orcs? I dont understand how the campaign speed has been changed from vanilla but i dont get it unless its directly linked to pathfinding ability?

Orcs should be faster at night, men by day. Some of these things were fiddled with.

Is it bad that Mordor have been sieging Cair Andros since the great war started?

Willclark93 May 2 2012, 8:47am replied:

you havnt really said how long that has been. They took a probably four whole days to seige it in my game? if they are taking weeks then it may just be an AI glitch. I had a enemy warband stuck in a river :P I have seen just as many things like that in vanilla though.

Hey, sorry for stupid question but I just recently began playing this mod and I'm wondering how long it usually takes for the war to start? I'm on day 25 and mostly i've been just running around carrying letters :) just wondering at what point I should start being worried about having installed the game wrong!

It's based on your level not on days that pass.

Thanks, the forces of darkness just started to march upon the free peoples >:D but another question, when the war started I initially declined the Elrond's call to arms(i'm a dunedain)because I was so far away and had been doing Gondor quests for a while now, but after Gandalf rode to me and told me to go see Elrond I decided to go anyways. But Elrond had nothing special to him, just the normal dialogue options. Am I stuck or am I going to have a new chance to join a campaign?

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.
