Dear people of the Modb community, we, former and current MOS members, have created a huge submod for your entertainment. This mod might have started out as a compilation of many smaller mods, but currently houses much unique content as well. MOS aims to be as lore accurate as possible while giving the best game-play experience ever seen in the world of Third Age Total War. After not being active for more than a year we are once again busy updating our mod. This has resulted in the release of version 1.7. We are still at it and we expect that there are yet some updates to look forward to. The Massive Overhaul Mod (or simply MOS) is a submod for Third Age Total War, one of the most popular submods that ever has been made for Medieval II Total War Kingdoms.
This is the latest version (2016 April 13th) of the MOS 1.7 all inclusive patch. It includes all the content from the previous patches, fixes a few serious problems and adds a big settlement buildings update for Gondor. Only this patch has to be installed, after installing the main MOS 1.7 files. Further info can be found in the description paragraph.
The MOS 1.7 all inclusive patch fixes all kind of little and big bugs and adds some content to the game. This is the only patch that you have to install. Not doing so will result in several possible game breaking issues popping up during your MOS campaign. Also you will miss out on some added content.
The Patch is save compatible in the sense that it most likely will not crash an existing save. The "Cair Andros" fix will not work with a previously saved game though.
If there are any crashes after installing this patch (which were not there before) the first thing to do is to run the Cleaner.bat. You can find it in the "Third_Age_3" folder (or whatever you may have renamed that to).
Extract the rar file in your "mods" folder. Overwrite files when asked to do so.
If the folder where your MOS is located is not called "Third_Age_3" then you can install the patch by extracting it anywhere you like. After that copy the entire content of the "Third_Age_3" folder and paste it to the folder in which your MOS version is installed. Overwrite files when asked to do so.
And here is a little picture of the Dead of the Marshes no longer looking like Silver Surfers, but in a lot of trouble.
