New Gameplay

New strategies of development
In the beginning the player is offered to choose between two strategies: "Offense" or "Defense". Each of strategy is in own way unique and introduces in game process a variety and new tactical elements.

"Offense" - strategy of development of the player, having chosen which he receives in the order small camp (almost unprotected from fast attacks of the opponent) with the bases for construction of certain buildings. Besides, bonuses and "Offense" are available to the player.

"Defense" - strategy of development of the player, having chosen which on the card there is a lock. As, bonuses and "Protection" upgrades become available.

New system of outposts
We completely processed system of outposts from BFME and ideally entered them in our new gameplay. Now there are three types of outposts.

As you can see, different types of outposts open new opportunities of further development of game before players.

For receiving bigger quantity of command points it is necessary not only to build more farms, but also to seize territories.

This mod is just amazing! These graphics and system updates are unique and this could be a brand new game for Battle of middle earth. The best mod ever!

I just saw that you are needing a composer and mapper and maybe I'm the man you're looking for that consern.

I am still interested about the battle of middle earth and I do mapping with Battle of middle earth editor. I also compose music games for example and it would be wonderful to design audio for your mod.
