An unofficial Expansion for the Rise of Rome which adds
-Four scenario Lord of the Rings Campaign
-Four New Nations: Gondor, Rohan, Isengard, and MORDOR
-New Units and Technologies-- will Durin's Folk aid you in mining, or will the Shire Folk show your villagers how to farm?
-A new soundtrack blending the best music from AOE and LOTR
-New menu images based on the Lord of the Rings, used with permission from independent artists
-LOTS of language file and other small changes
-Choppable trees-- How will your Tool age neighbors like it when your Axemen start hacking a trail right through his forest?
-Middle-Earth Random Map, featuring Trolls, Wizards, re-growing Mushrooms, and Falcons.
-Middle Earth scenario to play alone or with your allies online.
-Over 25 new multiplayer taunts.
-So many modded graphics that it takes two hands to count them on your fingers!
-Plus, a Soundtrack Manager. Easily add your own mp3 soundtracks, and then switch between the Age of The Ring soundtrack, the original RoR soundtrack, and your custom soundtracks. Simply click "Shuffle" to shuffle the order of in-game songs.
All new Technologies, Units (except Siege Tower), and Civilizations are designed to be balanced with the Rise of Rome. This means you can play Mordor vs. Rome without an advantage or disadvantage. While I've done my best, I'm just one man, so any feedback about the balance of units or civs is appreciated.
Shire Folk resource counter doesn't work. No known fix.
note: Everyone needs the same version for multiplayer to work. Version C was released on August 3 2018.
