Q: What's the topic of this mod?

A: This is a proposal/WIP mod to modders who wanna work on such mod on S2TW. This is an overhaul mod according to Last Alliance of Tolkein's Lord Of The Rings fantasy series stories. This is as a proposal/WIP mod at the moment but maybe becomes a real powerful project!

Q: Why we start such mod while other LOTR mods for Attila or Rome 2 exist?

A:The reasons why we propose this mod in spite of existence of other LOTR mods for Attila or Rome 2 are:

1. S2TW has better modding than Attila.

2. S2TW has campaign map modding which is missing from Attila for ever.

3. S2TW has simple and balanced gameplay and has the same battle & campaign graphic mechanics even better!

and many other reasons such as unmodable Attila movies and some gameplay limitations for example we can't control an army without a general and who has played total war games up to now absolutely feels the badness of this unamendable limitation in the campaign and so on... .

Q: This mod is forbidden by CA?

A: We know such fantasy mod is almost forbidden by CA's players agreement, but it's not something to relevant us not to create fantasy mods ;) maybe CA when sees these mods make players to come back to shogun 2 & buy it permits modders officially. At least most likely we may not have a steam version of this mod but it isn't something prevents us to play multiplayer.

Q: What's our plan now for the mod?

A: Well, now the main plan for this mod is to work on custom battles & prepare it firstly, so we need 2ِD artists, 3D artists & specially animators, & also I'm side by side specially in the artwork tasks.

Q: What's our plan for Shogun 2 animations?

A: As we know, Shogun 2 animations are absolutely modable an we could add custom animations, dear Havie wrote a useful tutorial about it and according to it we are able to add new animations to the game! The main reason that modders leave Shogun 2 modding is the animations but we could solve it simply.

Q: What's our plan for campaign map?

A: Also Shogun 2 campaign map is completely modable like Medieval 2 TW, and we have the best experienced map designer such as Uanime5, he's the author of Shogun 2 campaign map tutorial series. We are planning to have a map completely similar to the map of Middle Earth from Umbar to the territories of Iron Hills and Angmar and Lindon with the amazing campaign items such as animated Mount Doom!
