AotR 5.0 World Builder
This is a standalone World Builder, it contains AotR 5.0 plus everything neccessary from RotWK v2.02 to run World Builder outside of the game folder. It is compatible with AotR 5.1. It includes the no-eula patch. You will need to copy your own Worldbuilder.exe into the folder and patch it yourself with Large Address Aware.
There are new features in the Age of the Ring 5 that revolutionise map making for The Battle for Middle-earth. We've added cliff 3d models that can speed up creation and beautify your maps. As seen in the AotR Fellowship of the Ring Campaign we've added walls and other objects that can be used to create rooms inside buildings.
There are bugs, there are some bad bugs that can ruin your map. We are looking into them and working on fixing them.
