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.

Hey guys, firsty - amazing work. been constantly looking for a lord of the rings game that is actually worthy of Tolkien's work. Mount and Blade is the perfect game to do it for IMO, so can't wait for the mod to come out.

Just a quick thing i'm worried about is lack of minor armies to train up on - like bandits, mercenary warbands, sea raiders and looters. Most that didnt have a decent spawn rate of these i found i couldnt really get into, simply because i couldnt effectively train up my men, or find enough loot to pay their wages. Just wondering what ur setup is gonna be like?

There are these wanderers in TLD as well. Mountain goblins, Corsair raiders, Dunland raiders, etc... There are also trainers and training halls available in most major factions. You'll be able to train up.

good to hear. Love trying out different mods, but not being able to train up properly make some of them almost unplayable. Also wondering what relative size the maps going to be - i found in the last version of TLD the map was huge(which is good), but there was a lot of dead area in which there was literally nothing. If its the same size, is there going to be more content to fill it up?

It's even bigger now. Should be active in some areas, less active in others. If you recall LOTR, 90% of the books they're walking. :)

Hopefully it's packed full of content then :D This may be an unanswerable question but was wondering about the aproximate release -> if its going to be before or sometime after TES V: Skyrim is released(that game is likely going to get me hooked). Skyrims release is 11/11/11

:) You seem a sensible fellow. Do you think somehow you'd get the info out of us that noone else was able to? We hope to release asap, but when that is,w e dunno. In final stages, bughunting, but also very little free time this time of year, so progress is not as fast as we'd like.

That was a good point , but don't download it if you don't like it :) I think it's easy to critisize when it'ss not you who are making the work . Be open minded , do you REALLY think an orc can join Elves ? It's a joke , it's Middle Earth , not Conquest where you can ally Evil and Good ..... That's silly , you see ? And the mod is made BY purists FOR Lore sake and Tolkien's fans . :)

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.
