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).

F.A.Q.

News

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

Blood in the west vs The last days, what makes this different or better from The last days?

The main difference is that 'Blood in the West' is a sandbox mod, the alliances can switch and your army can become pretty mixed. On the other hand is it far from being finished.
'The Last Days' is a story mod, regulary getting updates since 11 years (the steamworkshop more often than the version at moddb though), you choose either the good or the bad side and try to win the War of the Ring for it.

Sorry for asking, but are the characters still confused about people's gender? IIRC, legolas was considered female which was a bit awkward.

It might be that ivanhoe only changed the name but not the gender of the companions

I thought you worked alone on it. Or is it based upon another mod then?

Enjoy this mod
Could you make it to where war doesnt start right off the bat. Also make it possible to join a vassal army. This would help with initial start. Just suggestions.
