For both Steam and CD users:
1, Download the mod from here moddb:
Blood in the West DOWNLOAD
2, Extract it (using Winrar or Winzip)
3, Grab the extracted folder named "Blood in the West Final 1.0" and search for your MAIN Mount and Blade Warband folder on your computer. (steam users in their usual ...steam/steammaps/... etc, CD users usually in .../program files (x86)/...)
4. When you find your Mount and Blade game folder, go inside, there you will find a folder called "Modules". Paste the mod INTO it (you're doing it well if you find the Native folder and the other mods you've installed in the same folder).
5. Launch MB Warband, and scroll down in the Launcher for Blood in the West. Keep in mind, set the game to English in the Options!
6. Play! :)

F.A.Q.

News 27 comments

1, How to install the mod?
After the download is complete, open it with Winrar (download it from here, if you don't have it: Win-rar.com)
Extract it, then take the Blood in the West folder to:
..../Mount and Blade Warband/Modules/ "here in this folder"
Then start warband, and roll down from 'Native', select mod, and play.

2, What version do I need to play?
Mount and Blade Warband 1.153 or higher

3, About graphic problems
If your computer struggles to deal with the graphics, try to lower it. If anything else beside lag happens, please report.

3, Is it English?
Yes, it is, you can only play in English, otherways you will have Native (vanilla) names, for example, if you're German, and you play in German, you will have Vaegir Soldat instead of Gondor Footman, and so on.
Due to the tendency of Eastern people writing about quite a lot of time, I try to make it clear:

THE MOD IS ONLY PLAYABLE IN ENGLISH!

Mod sadece İngilizce olarak oynanabilir!
Modul poate fi redat numai în engleză!
Mod ini hanya dimainkan dalam bahasa inggeris!
Mod hanya bisa dimainkan dalam bahasa inggris!
आधुनिक अंग्रेजी में केवल बजाने योग्य है!
мод доступен только на английском языке!

4, Why do I have Native (vanilla) names for cities, heroes, troops?
See answer at question #3

Damn it! :D

5, Is it SP and/or MP?
It is only Singleplayer for now, the multiplayer part is messed up a bit.

6, Does it has Middle-Earth map?
Yes it is, tha game is played on a (bit small) map of Middle-Earth

7, Does it has Middle-Earh scenes?
Not all scenes are made yet, only the most important ones (only to be included from FINAL 1.0 version)

8, Some of the animations don't work, what shall I do?
If they're stuck/ you don't like them, then just simply copy the original actions.txt from Native folder to the mod's foldr, and overwrite.

9, Why does the companions complaining about each other, and complaining false things?
Those are the leftover conversations from Native, which haven't benn converted yet. I'm working on them, but it takes a lot of time, and it's somewhat boring to do. The same thing is about that sometimes Orcs, uruks, and special characters are being referred as a Lady...

10, Are there any special Lotr creatues?
Yes, for example Mumakils, Nazgúl fellbeasts, wargs, trolls and ents.

11, About choosing faction at the beginning
Due to the MB Warband limitations, in FINAL 1.0 version, you can start as whatever creature you want, wherever you want, you won't be chased by any realms, and you can visit their locations, which may seem odd, but deal with it.

12, I don't speak English, but I want to help
Thanks, but no, we can't communicate, sorry.

13, I do speak English, but I can't do modding - still, I want to help
Well constructive criticism is always welcome, though not always taken into consideration (for example: Dwarven ram riders - say whatever you want, I'll never include it). Usually I'm stuck to my own ideas.

14, As a commenter (usually using anonymus status) I'm 30+ years old virgin, have pimples, and still living with my parents, and I want to tell you this mod sucks! Haha!
Well in this case your opinion is considered as a butth*le. Both of us have it, but I'm totally not interested in yours. Jokes aside, keep ill manners away!

15, I've noticed that you (ivanhoe95) can't keep your own schelude!
Yes, I'm really sorry about that, but I have many real-life events I have to attend to.

16, I'm a 18-30 years old hot gaming girl!
Send me a PM ;) :D

Ivanhoe please stop not caring about your community so much. You are active almost every day, you could give us a small report at least, for the fans who are loyal for years.

Peace :)

Good job genius, you missed your window. Summer is almost over, two new LOTR mods are in progress. The new AAA titles will be dropping within a couple months and by the time you release your mod in the 4 different downloads it takes you to do it Bannerlord will be out. I sincerely hope if you show this mod to anyone you are attempting to "showcase" your skills sets that they read the comments and see how extremely terrible you are at interaction at even a basic level.

Like Roguestrider already mentioned, such comments are not the reason modders don't like to announce any release dates. Also they don't have the obligation to feed their 'customers' with informations like many are expecting of them. Time goes by and life situations might have changed. And communicating is not everyones strenght^^

TLD and TLD Overhaul are getting updates within the next weeks, 'Third Age of Middle Earth'-Team is hard working on their new graphic style, Easterling picked up the work again at 'Middle Earth at War', 'Middle World' got released second last week I think, and 'The Last Age' is also still in developement. You can find the links to them here:

I think your forgetting that he is doing this service for free, so there is no deadline regardless of what he said in the past. This kind of post is why mod makers don't like giving publish dates cause people like you have no patients and only know how to insult them for being "too slow" when you forget they lead very busy lives as well. Everyone has been waiting a long time for this mod to be fully released. Just because he doesn't leave constant updates doesn't mean the mod is dead. And if it is, who can blame him. Life throws new curve balls everyday. Insulting him doesn't change that.

I do agree that it has been taking Ivanhoe quite a long time with very little conversation between himself and the community. I was just simply saying there is no need to spread around negative comments because that does nothing but deter modders from continuing. This is supposed to be a supportive community where mod developers can share ideas and get people engaged in creating quality content for games. Not a place to throw hate at them and bring them and their ideas down, that's all.

Although he should get more active in talking with the community which I know is hard to deal with modding and real life events but if he does not wish to pursue modding as dedicated as one should be if they wish to create something then thats his choice.

Very well said,How about being constructive and helpful? What happened to encouraging any of the warband modders unless they're obviously trolls? Nothing was gained here but a waste in comment space.
