Over 2,000,000 downloads on our various mirrors so far!

Read the Manual to find out what to do!

TLD 3.22 is now Open Source! It's not a simple "grab and use for whatever", so read up on what it means exactly: Mbx.streetofeyes.com

Hey there! We've made a new page to streamline the process of finding and installing the latest everything, we know it was messy before, so this is our small gift to you. A succinctly small presentation page with the key facts, with just what you need: Click here!

Seriously, this up here is all you need, the rest is an old description we're leaving here.

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.

Did you install the nightly patch? If you didnt, go to this website Tldbot.bitbucket.org , follow instructions, then start a new game. You won't be able to salvage old save game. If you try, you'll run into crashes.

Are you playing M&B 1.011 or Warband? You should find M&B folders if you put it in your C drive within: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\

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…

Lowest Rated (7 agree) 5/10

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.
