Hi, I can't research the forged blades and siege hammer upgrade in the Dwarven forge. I can research the dwarven dwarven armour upgrade but not these two. Also how do I build Ithilien rangers?

I got a little Problem with the "Red Arrow Upgrade" for Gondor:
I cannot research it :/
I captured a Beaconlight, got the "Value of Gondor" (Palantir, snd line, 12 Points needed to unlock) and even my base is fully researched and built...

Still: I love this mod.
I love it more than I did with Edain, very great and detailed work, indeed.

I've got the same Problem :/
Is it a bug, the non-working Red-arrow-Upgrade? O.o
