    Default The Dominion of Men 3.4 - Not Quite Done patch released!

    The Dominion of Men 3.4 - Not Quite Done




    Turns out we had one more in us - the fourth official patch for Fourth Age Total War: The Dominion of Men is here! Patch 3.4: Not Quite Done is the final, definitive (for real this time) instalment of the Fourth Age Total War mods, the culmination of more than 10 years of modding effort by hundreds of contributors!




    This patch requires The Dominion of Men v3.0 and up. This patch is cumulative so you do NOT need to install 3.1, 3.2, or 3.3 first. It is NOT savegame compatible.

    Download FATW: The Dominion of Men v3.0 Full Release here:




    Installation Instructions
    1. Unzip the 34_Not_Quite_Done.zip file to a location of your choice.
    2. Copy the data folder inside into your .../bi/fatw folder.
    3. When prompted, choose to overwrite all existing files and folders.
    4. Start FATW: DoM in your usual way and enjoy!


    Major Changes
    This patch includes further graphical improvements, balance adjustments, quality of life additions, and bug fixes to create the definitive version of Fourth Age Total War: The Dominion of Men.
    The most visible inclusion is a new settlement battlemap for smaller Dunedain cities; they're pretty but not quite as easy to defend as the larger cities, so you'll have to plan your garrisons accordingly.






    For a full list of changes please see the patch notes included in the download.



    Huge Units Balance Patch




    Also released now as a seperate download is a patch to balance version 3.4 of the mod for huge units sizes. As you are probably aware FATW has always been balanced for large unit sizes only, but since we know most of you play it with huge units anyway, we decided to release a patch that helped to balance population growth and income so that the campaign would play as closely as possible like playing with large unit sizes. You can grab this patch right here:






    IMPORTANT: This patch is ONLY compatible with DoM 3.4. It is not savegame compatible and will not take effect until a new campaign is started.
    Installation Instructions
    1. Make sure you have FATW: The Dominion of Men version 3.4 installed
    2. Unzip the 34_huge_units_patch.rar file to a location of your choice.
    3. Copy the data folder inside into your .../bi/fatw folder.
    4. When promted, choose to overwrite all existing files and folder.
    5. Start FATW DoM in your usual way and enjoy!


    Other News


    This is almost certainly the final release of Fourth Age Total War: The Dominion of Men, we hope you enjoy it! While this is the end of the mod our little team isn't quite finished playing around with Rome Total War modding, or Tolkien's Middle-earth. We are currently working on a little submod for DoM set in a different age, and if you like DoM you will definitely want to keep an eye out for it. You will see news of it here first!

    For more information, technical support, AARs, LPs and general mod related discussion you are already in the right place, but please also come and join us on the FATW discord channel as well.

    If you have any questions about installation or any other part of the mod then the FAQs thread should be your first stop.

    Finally, if you are enjoying the mod and would like to support us a quick review or rating over on moddb would be very much appreciated. And if you know other Tolkien fans, or Total War fans, who you think would enjoy the mod please do spread the word around, we want as many people to enjoy it as possible!

    Learn. I didn't know how to do anything when I got this game, and now I know how to do quite a bit. Volunteer. Struggle. Figure it out.
    There are lots of cool mods that never see the light of day because people don't realize that mods need workers, not watchers, or realize it but continue to watch anyway.

    Is it just me or does Adunabar seem to use more orcs and trolls than in 3.3? They are also using more artillery and fewer archers. I actually like seeing more orcs because I like to see the bastards die.

    I haven't noticed yet - in my 3.4 Rhun campaign, Adunabar hasn't been throwing too much my way, and in my 3.4 Dwarves campaign I haven't seen their armies up close.

    I'd guess they're using those forts in Mordor to pump out Uruks and trolls. Not sure about the artillery, but I always like seeing fewer archers when I'm fighting Adunabar. Those bowmen can be tricky to deal with!
