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. Elves have entered the stage now with the latest update, and the foundation for another new faction is set!
Hey there, it's time for an update.
Rohan will get a 3rd choice when unpacking settlements, the Rohan Barracks. Big shoutout to Maximan, the maker of the BFME: Classic Edition, who mapped the Barracks structure and animated it. Also a shoutout to TheDeadPlayer, who made the Rohan Warrior model.
The Rohan Barracks has long been on my mind, but I couldn't think of a proper way to implement it. On top of this, joshua199, a follower of this mod suggested to add Rohan Soldiers as an alternative to peasants. I think I have found a pretty good solution.
Rohan Militia are slightly weaker than Gondor Soldiers, cost the same and build faster. Make sure to also check the video I made about this update: Moddb.com
Hope you like this update. I do have some time on my hands atm (despite Pokemon GO), and I intend to reveal the next faction within the next days. Taking bets naow. Note however that it is still far from being finished.
Stay tuned. Have a great day!
