3 comments by Halbarad1996 on Jan 11th, 2014

Hello all.
Some time ago I decided, that it's necessary to upgrade BFME2 system of walls. And radically.
So, I thought about it and decided that new walls must be free-constructed (as in bfme2), walkable and just great.
After many hours of works I have done it and you can see it on this screenshots:


(more screenshots you can see in the gallery)

Now I want to say about how it works.
Firstly, every faction will be able to build such walls (and Mordor too).
Secondly, there will be two types of walls: stockade and stone walls.
Stockade is very cheap and it's easy to build. Stone walls are very strong and powerful, but it's very expensive and big (however, you will have a really castle!).
So, what new walls can offer to us?

At first, I suggest to look on stockade:

You can modify a segment of stockade's wall with gate or ballista:

And it's all about stockade.

Go to the stone walls. System of walls construction is as in original game: we should build a hub, which can build walls to us:

You can upgrade stone walls with next improvements:

  • Stair - allows your units to walk on the walls.


  • Gate - allows your units to walk outside a castle.


  • Gun - set on wall segment and attack an enemy.


  • Additional gate - set on stairs in order to block enemy, which climbed on walls.

Also you can modify hubs with trebuchets or mortars:

And finally I want to show you two videos, which should teach you how to build a castle and how to destroy a castle. Pleasant viewing.

Why does this mod have such a low score? Average score of 6.6? Here is reality, for people who are confused - Halbarad1996 has created the most visually appealing mod for any BFME game so far. The units look amazing, the buildings look perfect, the new walls are EXCELLENT,and the game has a much darker feeling to it.

In the past few months, Edain (with a huge team) have essentially persisted in delaying the release of their mod, while periodically releasing 3D versions of Hobbit trailers that serve absolutely no purpose. Then, when asked about a date, there is not even an estimate. Halbarad, working alone, has changed virtually all of the models and textures in the game for the BETTER, and his mod is in English. Edain was, up until 4.0, still in German.

Congrats to Halbarad, keep up the amazing work, this mod will be killer!

Edain is still the best. Halbarad's work is impressive, but both mods are completely different. I agree this mod is underrated. The canons and non LOTR stuff is out of place yet the models are astonishing.

From Rhun faction,easterling archers ( mostly - when thy see the enemy ) or other easterling units don2t attack to enemy most of time or never attacks... and the game is crushing after a period as always... Halbarad would you fix that errors/bugs please at your next patch ? thanks.

Would you seperate the rhun and easterling each other ;and make them as 2 factions please ? Rhun faction ;and easterling faction; not mix the both in one. And how to summon mammoth units at current patch too ? thanks again.

when will you release the next patch ? I love your mod man^^.

It's happens if you playing with Rhun's/Mithlond's/Angmar's AI for long time.
If you playing MP or with AI of other factions all should be stable.
