Since I'm not seeing an Easterling faction on the list, will you be including them with Mordor or with Haradwaith (making Haradwaith more of an "Evil Men" team than actual Harad)?

Also can we expect in Haradwaith anything "exotic" and maybe more of Umbar Black Numenoreans (since Angmar will not be featured and lore wise they lived in Umbar rather than Angmar) other than the standard Corsairs ? Of course we are standby for more of your anouncements

There will be some *very* exotic things coming in Haradwaith. Probably our strangest faction to come.

Are you planning on releasing multiple factions at the same time for example do lothlorien and erebor in one update or are you going to do it one at a time?

I know you probably haven't started rohan yet, but when you eventually do Rohan, are you thinking of doing three hunters, if so would it be a power or would they be recruitable heroes, if you make them recruitable it may be an idea to make it kinda like orophin and rumil in the Edain mod, have one purchase, maybe make it 6000 resources and have all 3 as separate units with unique powers

Hey guys,

Just wanted to say a huge thank-you for all the work you've put into this mod!

BFME has been a must-have installation on every PC I've owned since it came out, what 14 / 15 years ago? It's one of the few games I can never get bored of and will always keep coming back to. By sheer dumb luck I stumbled across your mod whilst browsing BFME 2 YouTube videos (I didn't even know there was a modding community for this game!) and decided to give it a go...

The thought and level of detail that has gone into everything so far is mind-blowing! It has that perfect combination of feeling like I'm playing a brand new game for the first time, yet still having the familiarity of BFME. The new units, buildings, formations, powers, etc and the level of detail gone into their design and appearance is amazing - having seen the FAQ's and the other factions you have planned as well, I literally cannot wait to see it all in action.

In short, this mod is epic! Keep up the amazing work - you guys are legends!

Great mod. Is it planned to update compatibility to be compatible with patch 1.09?

Why would we? This is a ROTWK mod.

Forgive my not knowing the specifics of these things (I only recently got the game for the exact reason of playing this mod). I am aware of certain updates in 1.09 such as the update to textures and new additions such as walls for Mordor, updates that I think would make fine additions to this mod. I was just curious if it was planned.
Based on your comment it seems that it is in fact not, sorry for not being aware. :(

Why did you made this mod be a mod for ROTWK and not for BFME2 when this mod has no Angmar faction? EA games put the Angmar faction on ROTWK and you make this mod for ROTWK not having this faction.

I'm just curious... are the planned factions listed in the order they are going to be released? Or is the order they're going to be released in different from the order they're listed in? Or do you guys not know yet?
--
For example, are you releasing Rivendell after Erebor and Rohan last and Harad 2nd to last based on the order the factions are listed in? Again, just wondering if the order they're listed in matches the order they're being released in...

Will the possibility be added in case of adding a mount to your character, to create a mound of horse with the same procedure as the heroes?

Oh i know you already got that asked many times, and we already know that Arnor and Angmar wont be in.

But do you consider your april prank fools models/textures to be shared ?
I wana know because maybe some people can make a submod ( if its possible and allowed) that includes Arnor and Angmar after the full release of the mod.

I know its your design choice, still it would make many people ( me included ) happy, as I for myself only want them for skirmish( were nothing is real canon ) and maybe ( if working) war of the ring mode.

Those models are quite unfinished, but if anyone wants to do an Arnor submod for AotR they can send me a message for them.

Hey guys!
i see 2 important problems with this mod until today:

1) When my enemy or ally is Misty Mountains, they can create big bats, but they never send them nothing to war, bats stays there always.

2) Once i saw one user that said about problems with load a game. Somethimes happened to me also, but it wasn't much, but today i play this mod again, and here see another problem related with this problem.
When my enemy makes Sauron, the music gets stuck, for many many time; i've tried to save game for load the same again and see what happen, but the game says "can not load this match" i tried twice and same again... so i don't know if the problem is because only with the music and only if i play with "Gondor", to load match. By last, i proved save in the same map, all same, but at the beggin, i load the match, and it was ok, so the problem is only when sauron appears and the music gets stuck.

This is only in my case? or will be resolved in the next upgrade?

Thanks for your reply ;)

Hello, I have to thank you for your great work, this mod is amazing :)

I have one question though - is there some way to hide/disable the 4 "camera angle" abilities that are available from the start? I understand it is great for taking screens and showcasing units in videos but if you don't plan to do that and just play, they sort of get in way :/

No, afraid not. Unless you want to go into each map and remove the camera scripts.
