Alternately titled "The Lord of the Rings: The Last Days"

A visual conversion of The Last Days of the Third Age, bringing the characters, equipment, and world more in line with Peter Jackson's film adaptions, along with some balancing and gameplay tweaks. Much of the audio has been replaced with superior-quality sounds, and some of the music for battles and towns is taken from the movies. The core of TLD will remain intact to maintain a similar gameplay experience, while removing some of the more overpowered features and changing a great deal of text for consistency.

Additionally, I have included InVain's TLD scenepack, which provides much superior scenes, especially sieges. While I am aware that many of these scenes are less film-friendly than the standard TLD scenes, I feel that the improvements they make on the siege battles are great enough that they overcome the downsides. Perhaps one day I will edit them to be more film-accurate.

Note that this mod is heavily WIP and there are almost certainly going to be bugs (which should be reported here on Moddb as soon as you encounter them)! For now, you may enjoy what is already here, as the game is playable in full all the way to the end of the war for either side, with (hopefully) no game-breaking glitches. I would ask that you please request permission from me before using any resources original to this mod, but the assets are free to be used so long as you give credit where it is due.

And for anyone complaining that this contradicts Tolkien's books or whatever, I have no intent of using the books whatsoever for reference. My sources include, first and foremost, the movies, then the GamesWorkshop Strategy Battle Game, then any other film-related reference (games, art, etc) and my own ideas. I don't care whatsoever for the books and simply wish to reproduce the look of the movies that I love. This is first and foremost a personal modification, I have simply uploaded it to share with everyone.

Credits to: Blood In The West, Floris Evolved, Gekokujo, The Veiled Stars, and Fred's Bunch-O-Armors for a good number of armors and weapons used in this mod, as well as the basis for my own creations. Third-party credit to the Third Age: Total War mod and its sub-mod, Divide and Conquer, for a bit of concept inspiration.

Special thanks to everyone - apparently within 5 hours of uploading this, it is No 1. on Moddb! Really didn't expect this, so again, a massive thank you for all the views!

Good news for everyone who thought the mod might be dead - we're still active! However, I've been so busy recently that little progress has been made, and what little is made is directed more toward bugfixes. Ultimately, I decided it was of best interest to simply release what has been done so far.

Version 0.15 contains bugfixes for 0.1, as well as a number of small changes. Most importantly, however, this release includes completed versions of Gondor's Blackroot Vale and Lamedon factions, Mordor's Black Numenoreans, and a partially completed Harad! There is still a long way to go in the development of Harad, but what you can play in this version is mostly completed, sans a few armors and all weapons. I've also included an early, unbalanced import of Jurek_Darkwolf's Dunedain troops. Their equipment and stats have not been edited heavily yet, so they are likely going to be buggy. However, the Dunedain along with Harad are in my plans for the completed V0.2.

Additionally, players who were having problems with the font and shaders should now be able to play the game due to the shader update included in the currently used Nightly Patch!

So head on over to the download page (once the file has finished uploading, that is) and try it out! Fight as the Men of the South and overcome Gondor, or join the troops of the Fiefdoms and repel the invaders!

This face is more darker than the majority of vanilla faces, with custom black-shade around the eyes to match the Lôke-Gamp Rim from the movies.

Thank you very much for all the effort you made, the only mistake I found was that the gondor and rohan armies being defeated, when they reappeared were only 20 to 40 troops, while Mordor and Isengard were from 100 to 200
It is impossible to fight like this, I wish you good luck and thank you for such a wonderful job.

I think that's due to the faction's "strength" getting lower - I seem to recall Gondor having massive 200-man armies at "Very strong", and 40-man armies at "Weakened". It may also just be a bug with the version of TLD this is based on.

I have a question, why is Pelennor not the same as in the film and why is Minas Morgul not like the one from the film?(I mean in this mod so far, if its based on the film, the scenes need to have the correct stuff like in the films) They look completely different. Please let me know if that will be fixed cuz I like the cutscenes.

Because that would have been stealing to straight-up copy their work without permission...

Alright folks, here's the situation:

I hate to say it, but I really don't have much time to work on this mod. When I do have the free time, I'd rather be working on other projects or doing other things. I have also begun to feel that the M&B LOTR-themed mod scene is a bit too crowded at this point, and that I think these assets would probably be better off in the hands of those who better understand the M&B engine, which I never had time to get into.

So, I have decided to release all that I've done since 0.16 as "0.2 Alpha", which is more or less 0.2 with some balancing issues and minor bugs. It will contain Harad in a mostly-completed form (though a few weapons are missing), as well as a lot of small tweaks to Gondor and some other factions - including a single piece of armour for the Mirkwood Elves, intended to be an easter egg and a preview of what was to come.

Additionally, all of the assets contained within this mod may now be used freely, PROVIDED YOU GIVE CREDIT!!! TLD Overhaul and Third Age of Middle-earth have my endorsement - check them out if you haven't already.

Thank you to everyone who supported this mod over time, and I hope you guys have fun with 0.2A!

EDIT: The file is now uploaded and released, get it in the Files Section! Delete your old installation of TLD-Film Edition before installing the new one.

Woah um, okay then.
A bit disappointing that you're not going to be able to improve on the mod. But I think we all understand why. Thank you for the mod in general and all you've done for the community with it.
:D
