LotR Battles of Middle Earth ( unfinished )

Author File Description
BOME Team
File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Battles of Middle Earth
Deigor en Endor

This mod is based on the literary works of JRR Tolkien, particularly the Lord of the Rings. It has been in the making for over five years, and still shows no sign of being finished, which is why it is submitted as an unfinished version.

All credits to the original creators- draugaer , Dionix , Modrocker , Jorgito_aqua27 and a few other contributors.

This mod is in custom installer format. No MPS is required to install.

Battles of Middle Earth is probably the best mod for Lord of the Rings in the Blacksmith. It is a total conversion mod, meaning that it changes almost every unit. This mod however is unfinished, as it has been in the making for nearly 5 years and over time the original authors lost interest in the mod, or didn't have time to continue it.

The graphics for the mod are excellent, befitting the LOTR theme. I especially liked the forests and the gaia eyecandy. The buildings are also decent, though there are many that are still unmodified and do stand out, mostly feudal age buildings ( though most of the castle/imperial buildings are changed ). The units all look really good. I especially loved the Ent, Balrog and Rohan knight

Although it is a total conversion, there are no unit stats changed, often leading to misfits in units. For example the ent still attacks like a conquistador, and the militia becomes a dark rider but still moves slowly. There are few icon changes and no language.dll changes, so units are not renamed.

However it is still very useful for making LOTR scenarios, a lot more than the original Aok.

Overall: Very good, but needs stats editing and is unfinished in many ways.

Jorgito_aqua27 Hi thanks for upload it at the blacksmith!!!

If somebody wanna see screenshots or know more about the mod visit this topic:

You can learn a little more concerning BoME :D

Bye!
OtmShankIiI Some graphics are a bit crapped, but hey, this is really cool! I still don't know what are these round relic thingies, and why should pikemen with banners would be able to heal and convert, but well... There are no dat changes.

Is it possible that one of these dark tall wonders could have a Sauron's eye thingy overlay??? It might look really really cool!

The rounded relic thingies are Palantir I think.

It would be great if someone made a list of all the things changed and modified language.dlls appropriately.
Aenon The relics have been replaced by Silmarils, the "holy jewels" created by Fëanor.

Very nice to see this Mod has finally been released after all these years ;-) thanks a lot Draugear, Dionix, Jorgito and all.
MrBlack103 Love this mod. Especially the "One Ring" and the different statues. ;)
