    I just posted some screenshots of my High Elves of Lindon campaign, which lasted over 400 turns. I regret not playing this mod earlier, but I'm very satisfied with it and glad that I decided to give it a try.

    My favorite aspects of it would have to be the gorgeous units like those of Rhun, especially their bodyguards, but also those of the Numenoreans and High Elves. Great looking stuff all around. I love the settlement models for each culture but was disappointed that Harad never built anything beyond the city and fortress level, so I never got to play a battle with their large city model (obviously saw the huge city of Umbar, though). I disliked how brutal the starting economy was and then the obvious scripted economic handicaps whenever I became too successful or when Mordor was revived or busy trying to slam me with a crusade and multiple attacks at once. In terms of technical issues the game crashed only a few times, namely during spider battles until I kicked the graphics down just to fight them, kick the graphics back up and move on. Barad-dur did crash once, but there were two large Numenorean reinforcing armies and lots of werewolves on Mordor's side. It was rather glorious seeing both Elven and Numenorean armies fighting side by side!

    I disliked how small the bodyguard units were for characters like Gildor and Glorfindel, especially since cavalry is limited for the High Elves in general. Therefore I manually edited the export_descr_unit file to make their units the same size as regular cavalry. Aside from that I played the game as intended, no unorthodox addition of gunners and cannons like I introduced into my personal version of MOS. I might add those for Numenoreans if I play a campaign with them, though. I had a hard enough time taking down Hill Trolls and werewolves with my most elite Elven units (expensive and slow to recruit), so I fail to see how the Numenorean Kingdom is going to survive against such an implacable foe. That's especially the case with Harad nipping at your heels to the south. In my war against Harad, I literally fought against their Mumakil in every other battle. It was quite a nightmare considering how Mumakil dead bodies also cause a huge roadblock for your own army which gets stuck on them if they come into contact.

    EDIT: also shoutout to whoever made the battle map settlement for Second Age era Erebor. It was magnificent looking, that giant throne hall!
    I am quite glad that you enjoyed the mod and the campaign and appreciate your kind comments regarding the Rhun units.
    Many thanks!

    I know I've said it before, but I just have to congratulate you guys for putting together such a brilliant musical score from various sources. That "Rise of Mordor" soundtrack is amazing. Can't believe that guy made it simply for an Attila mod.

    I haven't played Vanilla in so long I didn't even realize this or recognize the settlement! I might not have ever actually fought at Erebor in Vanilla TATW, but I fought there frequently in MOS and Leo's submod, which indeed has the first example. Thanks for clarifying. Regardless, a brilliant settlement model. You guys (+ Leo) did a great job on those in general.

    I don't think there is anything substantial related to the blue wizards.

    Glad to see that someone is still playing! Thanks!
    I love how you brought some Belfalas warriors to fight in far away Rhun, and they even got gold chevrons now!

    Thanks guys! Yeah, I like to bring units from far away on missions and in this case it was easy since they were crusading Tol Acharn armies. I used the Umbar Magyr heavy infantry recruited from Umbar in a town siege all the way in Khand to the east.

    You don't change the (universal) BAT file - it's not required. Instead you edit the CFG file where it states the path\name of the mod and change the folder name:

    Code:
    mod = mods/Bare_Geomod                # path to mod folder

    The opening post has now been amended (note added) to take care of this issue.

    The BAT file is fundamentally different as it does not reference the mod folder but rather uses relative reference, hence there is no need to change the BAT file, only the CFG file as the opening post describes.
    Code:
    start kingdoms.exe @mods\Third_Age_3\TATW.cfg
    
    versus
    
    start /affinity 1 /high kingdoms.exe @%0\..\Configuration.cfg
    The BAT file is also Steam compatible and gives the game priority for the use of the first processor (game uses only one processor).

    Hey guys, I just wanted to inquire and see if this mod is still in development and if there are any active communities (Discord groups, etc.) I could join?

    I'm occasionally doing some work on the mod when I have time.
    There are no active communities.
