Is the update running in the Middle-earth Extended Edition 0.875.1 version? Or we must wait to the next download file version? Thanks for the work, your mod is awesome.

me gustó tu trabajo en esta versión, pero te sugiero que cambies la habilidad de legolas "knife fighter" ya que en los libros nunca utiliza sus cuchillos ni mata a ningun mumakil, esto lo digo para darle mas realismo a los heroes y es un consejo, no una queja, es el mejor mod de el señor de los anillos

Legolas usó sus cuchillos en las trilogías "Hobbit" y LotR. También mató a un mumakil durante la batalla de Pelennor Fields.

en las películas si, pero nunca en los libros, si lo que deseas es un acercamiento mas real para los fans mas meticulosos entonces podrías quitarlo, sin embargo si deseas ser fiel a la jugabilidad y las películas, entonces es correcto

aun así si deseas dejar los cuchillos, entonces agrega un solo cuchillo blanco que es como lo describen en los libros, por favor no creas que te quiero corregir ni nada, estoy muy fascinado con tu mod, solo te doy un consejo que puedes tomar o ignorar,no importa mucho porque no afecta al juego en gran medida

Guardaré los cuchillos, ya que me parece muy lógico que un arquero, sin importar lo hábil que sea, traería consigo uno o dos cuchillos para poder defenderse en un combate cuerpo a cuerpo. Aparte de eso, estoy tratando de combinar las películas y los libros en mi mod, de ahí las adiciones de varios personajes de las películas de Hobbit, sin los cuales la facción de Gundabad no podría existir. Gracias por tus comentarios.

por cierto, porque no cambias su habilidad del mumakil, por una contra las bestias aladas de los nazgul,pues la mayor proeza de legolas fue matar una bestia alada (en los libros pues en las películas no aparece)

Esa es una buena idea, pero darle a un héroe antiaéreo ya fuerte la capacidad de dañar seriamente o matar a un héroe tardío del juego no es bueno para el equilibrio.
