Age of Strife is a complete conversion mod for Lord of the Rings, Battle for Middle Earth. Set in its own fantasy world it aims to allow players to use several new factions with a few altered gameplay mechanics for some hopefully enjoyable skirmish battles. Over time new factions and maps will be added, gameplay will be refined and animations will be improved, so if anyone plays the current version and likes it keep an eye out periodically for new content.

Apologies

In January I started up working on Age of Strife again in a small capacity and made a little headway. I was able to fix a few bugs, complete the simplest of the new maps I was working on and make a good start on one of the larger ones. My intention was to try and ease myself back into doing something creative and hopefully increase my workload over time.

It has unfortunately become apparent that as I am at the moment I can't reliably work on a modding project. Even the small amounts of work I have been doing have proven extremely difficult for me and rather than increasing the amount I've been able to do after a while my schedule has pretty much collapsed. It's hard for me to admit how limited I am right now, but as much as I want to make things all trying to force myself to do so achieves is making me feel even worse when I'm not able to. I've not really done anything useful on the project for several weeks now so I am reluctantly making it official, this project is now on hold for the foreseeable future.

I don't like doing this, I like making things and I've enjoyed knowing that at least a few people have gotten some enjoyment from the mod even in its rough and early stages as it is. I am very grateful for the encouragement I've gotten and very sorry if anyone is disappointed with this announcement. I do hope to come back and work on the mod again when I'm in a state to do so, but I can't honestly say how long that's going to take and don't want to give anyone false impressions about that.

Getting back to work.

you probably have to create a skirmish profile first, before clicking skirmish in the mod

so: simply launch the game without mod and create a skirmish profile. then it should work. i had the same issue

Whilst the problem does sound like an error I haven't been able to get it to occur or found code that looks like it would cause it. Can I suggest deleting the mod files and re-downloading them, there's always a chance it might work, and telling me the result? Also which version of the mod are you playing on, the initial release or the Order release version?

Sounds like a bug. What exactly is happening, are they just not building anything or only building some things? Also do you know if its happening to all factions or just one?

Having trouble getting the error to occur so I can work on it. Could you tell me what AI difficulties you've tried and what maps you've played on? It might help me narrow down where the problem is.

If there's anyone else experiencing this bug could they provide me with a little further information?
