The Blue Wizard Mod adds a new playable faction, Elves, to the game "The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth(tm)". It also enhances the original factions with additions and changes the gameplay. It has a lot of similarities to the Elvenstar Mod 5.8, the first mod I've ever played and motivated me to get into modding myself. As I and many others have problems getting the old versions installed (and the mod itself was buggy at times), I decided to make my own mod, using similar elements of the mod I loved to play back in the day combined with my own ideas (and in English language as a base). Elves have entered the stage now with the latest update, and the foundation for another new faction is set!
You need the newest BFME Patch (1.06) or this mod will not work correctly. For this, you need to download Patch 1.03, then Patch 1.05 and finally Patch 1.06. Alternatively, if you use forshire's online version, you don't need to do anything except for installing this mod.
The long way:
Patch 1.03: Gamereplays.org
Patch 1.05: Moddb.com
Patch 1.06: The3rdage.net
(Optional, only for online play) T3A Online Launcher: T3aonline.net
The simple way (English language only):
BFME Online Edition (includes all patches): Forshire.blogspot.com
Currently being worked on:
- Another new faction
- Additions to the existing factions
- Bug fixes of the current version
Plans for further releases:
- Fixing bugs of previous versions
- Maybe another faction
I'm still looking for a 3D Artist. That would speed up the development a lot. :)
the development of the mod is advancing, and though I have nearly finished 4 out of 5 spell books, I consider releasing a quick update 0.13 including some balance changes and possibly hero reworks before dropping the big spell book update in a later version 0.14. All the work that has to be done after the spell book update (new power balance, AI behavior etc.) might take some more time and I would like to push out an update soon as I've noticed quite a few bugs in the current release.
Oh, and BWM now has a new Logo. I don't know what I was smoking when I made the old Logo, but the new Logo will have an Elven touch to it and looks better.
There should be more updates towards the end of February and the beginning of May. Stay tuned. Thanks for reading.
Patch goes live, balance changes and a couple more improvements included
Balance Update for BWM, Server Play and an update to how things are currently
