First and foremost, this is indeed the God-mod for BfME :)

Okay I can't really be bothered making a structured paragraph right now, so I'll set up a pros and cons list:

Pros:
-Everything in general is just EPIC, SWEET and AWESOME!
-Skins are beautiful!
-Rohan's units in particular are wonderful and very movie-accurate (I love the new drafted peasants)
-Dwarven castle, camp, and outpost are simply works of art (Took me a while to notice the murals in the castle gatehouse)
-Both the artistic style and the workings of the Erebor faction fit in VERY well with the existing ones. Not overly complicated, nor overly simplified
-And a dozen other points :)

Cons:
-The dwarven well, while a beautiful piece (I love the water) just causes huge amounts of lag as soon as you click the button to build it
-Shellmap is also quite laggy
-Ummm... There is only one mod like this one?

Anyway, there you go. Sorry if this belongs elsewhere, but I couldn't find a topic in which I thought this fit. Hope the lag issues can be resolved somehow, everything else ran as smooth as something that is really smooth :p

I think the lag is mainly caused by your pc ;-)
Mine has no problems with the wells.
If the above post offended you in any way,
please take note that, until further notice, I don't care, so get lost.

It may be, but as I said, it is quite wierd that something causes so much lag when everything else is just fine and works beautifully :)

*makes a happy, cut purring noise* I'm really glad people appreciate the work put into the castle and camp!

I will look into the well issue, though I can't think of a problem offhand. Could you throw in more specifics perhaps (when the lag starts, does it persist, does it go away when destroyed, etc) and your system specs?

Yes, you should be very proud of the work done on the Dwarven bases! :)

I think I had the recommended system specs, but here they are anyway:

2.00GHz processor
1.99 GB RAM

Further than that I'm not so sure...

Anyway, it is simply the well's (and the wall well's) presence on-screen that causes the lag (in other words, when it is in view). The lag starts when the building of the well commences, and the collapsing of the well finishes.

What's your graphic card?
BTW I have lag in the shellmap too, but it's logical since there are a lot of units there. However, I don't understand why the well is laggy. Perhaps it's because the "super-awesome" material of the water :) .

This is wierd... I look at my system specs and it doesn't tell me my graphics card. Oh well, I just know that it's somewhere around 2MB. I could be wrong about that, though...

Man, the moment I saw the camp and outpost, I was surprised. I really love the outpost because of the towers and the camp is great for it's balanced walls. The castle is just plain awesome. Building a catapult, errr... mangonel, not a catapult..., above the archers really feels like a true castle, since those things were often built upon the battlements themselves.

Go start, select Run and type dxdiag. Go to the display tab and look at the name and memory of your card.

Fair enough. I was just puzzled why it was that single structure. The complex animated textures, I guess.

I was so dissapointed when I`ve heared RA will be cancelled. Was following you guys for years (like many others), and that was a huge hit, cause I enjoy playing bfme 1 and was waiting for this "one mod to rule them all" :p
So after that, wasn`t following things so much, and said to myself recently,lets see are there any chages.
And omd :O:O I see this one.
It looks like EA made it, better even. Great job guys. This is the best game suprise in years.
And now for questions:
Will you seperate elves through time? or add some buffs/debuffs to other fractions?

Once again, thanks and keep up the good work.

I think this is a really good mod.

My main con though, is that it seems a little slow. Then again, I am been playing TEA, which is like 2x as fast as BFME, so maybe that is the reason it seems slower. Is there any way it could be sped up like TEA was?

Also, the dwarven AI is a little confused. Sometimes it does nothing in skirmishes, just sitting there. I look forward to the possiblity of a campaign.

On the whole though - excellent job guys!

Dwarven AI only works with new maps (provided you're on version 0.551)

Mordor and Isengard needs more heroes (or at least more buffers) you guys planning to fix that?

Aha - that explains it! I was wondering why it worked sometimes but not other times.

Perhaps a few, But adding new features to them would make up for that, Such as demounting for the Nazgul/Witch-King
