Awesome mod, MorgulLord - 3.0 is going to be one of my 2 favorite mods (the other 1 being edain)! Great ideas with the sub-faction system by the way. As for the heroes, I love the red axe of Dain :) I like his hammer, too, but the axe is better. Also, Azog's armor is great!

This has me very excited! Are subfactions going to be implemented where you can choose a different one from the beginning as the "base" faction?

for some factions yes, for example, when you choose Misty Mountains faction, you can choose between Gundabad and Goblin-Town, or Elves, when you start the game you can choose between Lothlorien, Rivendell and Mirkwood, each with different game style..

How do you unlock the Mordor sub faction? The buildings are grayed out for me.

Hello, great mod but please remove these floor colourings around castles, looks ugly on rough terrain, mostly stays on air at second castles...
