This mod will (eventually) allow you to play as a leader of the greatest civilizations and empires in Middle-earth, holding the fate of Arda in your hands.

*17 different civilizations, from Arnor to Mordor, Dale to Harad
*Unique unit art for (some) of the civilizations. [More to come]
*A completely revamped tech tree.
*Over 25 new wonders
*Many new buildings and civics.
*A map of Middle-earth by Manni

This is an alpha version of the mod. It currently has many things missing, and is not balanced. You can still build your empire and tweak the mod as you see fit, though!

Alright, to clear up a bit of confusion, to install the mod, you should be seeing MiddleEarth0220, and then a folder inside it called MiddleEarth. 'MiddleEarth' is the one you want. Copy and paste that one, and everything inside, to C:\programFiles......\beyondthesword\mods folder.

Hi. I just downloaded this. I extracted into the default folder - Middle-Earth0220. The subfolder is MiddleEarth.
I tried moving both just that subfolder as well as the higher level into the C:\programFiles......\beyondthesword\mods folder.
Neither is working.
Should I be putting the folder(s) somewhere else?

I am not the guy who's done the majority of the work, that'd be topsecretCFC.

But yes, this is still being developed.
