Expanding on every feature found in The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth II as well as boasting entirely new content. The all new single player campaign’s innovative new units will help to tell the story of the evil Witch-King’s rise to power, domination of Angmar, and invasion of the great kingdom of Arnor, home to Aragorn’s ancestors. To fully experience the evil side of Middle-earth, gamers can now play as the all new Angmar faction in skirmish, multiplayer, and War of the Ring modes.

Experience a whole new depth of strategy with upgraded War of the Ring and Create-A-Hero features. Create-A-Hero’s entirely new Troll class boasts additional weapons and armour that will allow players to have even more freedom in customizing their game play. War of the Ring, the risk-style meta-game, offers upgraded army persistence, a new siege dynamic on the Living World Map, and unified territories that serve as major control points.

Edain Unchained 3.1


We are thrilled to announce the release of the next version of Edain Unchained. Brace yourselves as we unveil a new chapter of the Unchained Submod, promising an even further improved experience of our beloved Edain Mod.

The new version will be released on 09.02.2024!



We also would like to introduce you some new stuff that come with the new version:

Reworked Maps

As always, we are reworking old maps to make them more interesting again. For example, this time we have reworked Lebennin. Here the map was widened slightly, outposts were added and repositioned. This means that the map is no longer separated from the outposts and new opportunities are created to destroy your opponent as quickly as possible!

Another map is Mouth of the Entwash. It was always a very cool map, but the many outposts were a bit too much. Furthermore, the map was made a little more symmetrical in order to increase the fairness between the players.

The last map in this category we would like to show is Tournament Hills. We made out of Tournament Hills a new map wich we added as an additional map: Tournament Hills II. The number of players was reduced from 8 to 7 and completely retextured.

Old Maps

One request from the community was to bring back an old popular map: Cradle of Creeps. We have fulfilled this wish. After we had to make some adjustments because the map was designed for the bfme2-building-system, the map is now also available for the bfme1-building-system.

New Maps

Of course, we not only reworked old maps, but also created completely new maps. The first map is a new horde map: Mirkwood. Similar to the horde map Minas Nurn, there are 30 waves to beat. Which wave can you reach? ;)

Another new map is Fortress of the Witch King: Carn Dum. There was already a Carn Dum map, but it was very spacious and empty. With this new version the North is to be destroyed again!

New Models

With each new Unchained version, new models are added. As has already been shown in the last few days, all Rhun units have received a rework. The new models are four times more efficient than the previous models.

In addition, the Cirith Ungol barracks have received a makeover too.

Bug-Fixes and Patch-Notes

Hopefully all errors that caused game crashes have been fixed. In addition, we have of course also added new changes:

• New/ reworked Maps got new Creeps like Uruk-Hunters, Jungle-Wargs, Bears, Broodmothers, …)
• Some Ringheroes got much stronger
• Lorien outpost citadel expansions add to cost reduction
• Lumbermills can be turned into other ressource buildings again
• Catapult expansions don’t do damage to allied buildings, however they deal damage against units
• lots of new or reworked sounds for spells • tribut carts got an ability to level external military buildings
• lots of Bug-fixes, balance changes, conceptual changes and quality of life improvements

You can find all patch notes here: Docs.google.com


Join the Fellowship Today! The time has come to don your armor and wield your sword. Whether you seek the thrill of epic battles, the joy of exploration, or the camaraderie of fighting along with your allies, Edain Unchained has something for every adventurer.

May your journey be filled with glory and may the spirit of Middle-earth guide you on this epic quest!

The liars from AOTR are forcing us to recreate our own pages, as if this should change anything. In turn, we announce the creation of SUBMOD on AOTR!)

Однако многие российские мододелы и фанаты серии STALKER усматривают в удалении модификации проявление цензуры и ограничения творческой свободы. Они считают, что ModDB применяет двойные стандарты в отношении российских мододелов и неясно определяет границы разрешенного контента. Такое решение может негативно сказаться на мотивации и энтузиазме российских мододелов, их желании делиться своими творческими проектами и вкладывать усилия в развитие сообщества.

Playground.ru

However, many Russian modders and fans of the STALKER series see the removal of the modification as a manifestation of censorship and restriction of creative freedom. They believe that ModDB applies double standards to Russian modders and is unclear about the boundaries of permitted content. Such a decision could negatively affect the motivation and enthusiasm of Russian modders, their desire to share their creative projects and invest efforts in the development of the community.

MODDB has double standards and they are aimed at removing original projects from Russian developers!

The MODDB site administration does not respond to messages and counterclaims.
Pikabu.ru
They may lie to you and you will not be able to prove anything, because no one from the support team will answer you.
Moreover, I will tell you that they probably ban you because of your nationality. There is no place for Russians here unless you are under a foreign boss.

I made my own models!
My co-authors made their models themselves!
We have proven the low-polygonity of our models; we did everything ourselves!
Don’t believe it, don’t believe it, I mean, people should suffer from slander, from discrimination, from the lies of others? I believe that AOTR does not have the right to tell which projects to be and which are not on the MODDB website. I have a weak laptop for recording videos and streams, I’m not going to curry favor and lick anyone’s ***. I appeal in anger to those who accuse us, you are wrong, all these many things were done BEFORE YOU and YOUR PROJECT!

Hello, have a question to map makers using Worldbuilder for BFME2. Is there a way to rotate the starting fortresses in a skirmish map? In short, I want to make the fortress face another way rather than southeast everytime I start a normal skirmish game. I tried rotating the player_positions waypoints in Worldbuilder but it doesn't work. Any other methods or is it just hard-coded into the game?

You need to edit the .bse files in the game files. They should be stored in the maps.big file. I would also recommend one of the many discord servers available. People don't really check her often.

That’s right, AOTR is a parasite on everything, presenting itself in a pure light and gobbling up other projects in denunciations.
For example, we are preparing a repack of the remaster of BFME 2 for 2024.
We will also have a remaster of ROTWK.
I recommend that you enable version 9 in the launcher in patch 2.02 and disable the delay fix.
Then AOTR will start.
