This one has a fix for the building upgrade glitch. Welcome to this mod made for fun. It makes the game more dynamic and crazy in the late-game. The early-game looks the same. Check out the HELP and INFO files. Please provide me some feedback in the comments below.
This version has been tested thoroughly by two testers, and is now much more balanced than before!
-The hero level up progression is reworked. It's now a much smoother progress. It went from exponential to quadratic curve.
-Hero experience multiplier for melee class is slightly reduced, due to heroes leveling faster with smoother progress.
-Good side's Camps can now be built outside bases and create their own green-zones. This makes it easier to create new bases. Another solution for this is preferable, but this will do for now.
-All units' damage multipliers to all original heroes are increased from 0.85 to 1.0. This is because it was impossible to give new modded heroes a 15% protection from normal units.
-All heroes have (1/0.85)x more base health. This is to compensate for the increased damage multipliers.
-Gimli's and Grishnakh's armor is decreased from 9 to 8 armor at max level.
-Frodo and Gollum have more health, attack and armor.
-Warrior, Wizard and Ranged hero classes have about 10% more attack at max lvl.
-Troll Bonecleaver and Huorn are strongly nerfed in attack and armor. Health is slightly nerfed.
-Troll Bonecleaver and Huorn are equally effective against buildings. Huorn has a 50% less bonus against buildings, while the troll has slightly more bonus.
-Troll Bonecleaver and Huorn are no longer immune to stun effects, like Spider Paralyze and Gimli's Sunder.
-Trolls and Huorn costs more population points to minimize tank spamming. Bonecleaver and Huorn: 7. Stonehurler: 6.
-Troll Stonehurler has a bit more siege damage, splash damage and splash range.
-Troll Stonehurler now gets more attack from upgrades.
-Fortress of Mordor and Stronghold now have in-built towers from lvl 3. Lvl 5 grants Ballista for Good, and Evil can upgrade Poison Arrows manually.
-Castles can now garrison units inside. It would make the in-built towers shoot faster, too. Even the AI uses this!
-Warg Riders got buffed from 10 to 10.5 in attack, and from 205 to 210 in health.
-Added high class workers on both side factions. They are called Dwarven and Elven Workers. They can carry 50 % more resources.
-Battering Ram is no longer immune to slow effects.
-Fixed stats differences between Gandalf's Grey and White forms.
-Activated AI bot difficulty level 4: Insane.
-Gimli, Varin, Grishnakh and Orcflanc Orc has 1 less armor at max lvl. They are now equal to all other warriors.
-Gimli and Varin nerfed from 25 to 22 base damage.
-Gimli and Aragorn (Anduril's Fury) now gains XP slower as the other heroes.
-Balrog got nerfed from 70 to 65 attack.
-Good Campaign is now accidentally broken. Not sure if it can get fixed without compromising Skirmish play.
-Set Rally Point feature is now broken in tech-houses level 3 and above. This is because of the towers overriding the right-click functioning.
-The hero Baby Spider is added into the game again.
-Add own descriptions.
-Make an Evil re-color of Dwarven Worker.
-Hero XP-thresholds adjustments and adaption between different classes.
-Add all the other hobbits from campaign.
-New fate powers.
-Fix the blank Khamul spell icon.
-Release a different version for playing campaign mode.
-Try to fix Khamul's free Bind Shadow.
-Nerf extreme fate/XP gain multiplier for some spells/special abilites.
-Make the hero stats more characteristic so that they fit their respective personalities.
-Attempt to make Battering Ram un-convertible by Saruman.

Q: Will you be updating this mod?
A: Most likely if you post a request in the comments below or if you want to test new inofficial patches.
Q: Can you add more features, such as flying dragons and pigs?
A: I wish I could. The current tools and accessibility to the game files are very limited. One would need the source code...
