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.

how long does it generally take for the War to start? I have waited for around 50 days and it seems like it's taking forever...

I just found Amon Hen yesterday after being told a rumor about it by a Hornburg merchant. I enjoyed exploring the location and didn't find any items so I am wondering if I missed one (Moria has the book, the Ent home has the water). Great job on the king statues!

Thanks for the reply also in version 3.0, i know that you have to wait for the ruler of the faction you are playing as to start a siege, but when i talk to one of them, they say they are going to capture a certain place then they go to that place and just wait around and defeat parties of enemies until their numbers get so thin they have to retreat, is this changed in the latest version.

It's difficult to entirely change it, but it's been tweaked so that lords are more aggressive.

try extracting the folder from winzip to new folder on your desktop. make sure you have extracted it properly other wise you will get windy_flora and other errors. take that folder in put it in modules and run iron launcher. it may take a bit to work but if it doesn't, refer to manual to copy the files you need. all the files you need to copy and paste are in one separate folder. it's not that hard.

Did you read the maunal, it says quite clearly to read the manual. Run the iron lanucher as admin

Quoted this RIGHT below the large, menacing red text.

Some people refuse to read the manual and act like ignorant eejits, asking over and over again:
"windy_flora error! Halp!"

And one of the FIRST lines?

People are smart. <3

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.
