I was just recalling the very first BFME mod I played.
Elvenstar going back almost 6 years now.
Playing that mod was what got me interested in modding for BFME.

So what was your first BFME mod (followed and played)?

Think it was a first age mod, can't remember the name, but it had it's own launcher. And it had blood fx in it. And it basically didn't have any new models or textures in it, just reusing stuff and stuff not used by EA. Can't recall the name, but it was pretty fun at the time. Even if I didn't know shit about Middle-Earth lore :p

Can't remember if that got me into modding or how I even found it, as I hadn't heard about modding before BFME. I just remember I found T3A through google, and read the tutorials and learned a bit a few months before I joined if I'm not mistaken. And I remember the joy when I got my first model in-game, a dwarf. Ah, the memories..

I don't play mods, so I expect my first one was a TEA alpha.

I really don't do requests and my Arnor Soldier is not fit for BFME. Don't ask me for either.

The first time I tried modding was for Morrowind but couldn't work anything out.
Before that I was making a game in RPG Maker 2003 (which is still half finished).

I think my first mod was probably RJ-RotWK. Don't think I played mods for the first or second BfME.

Elvenstar for me as well, it amazed me what that mod did. Much of it is considered standard by now, but back then playing heroes like the Mouth of Sauron, Black Riders and Sauron himself just blew my mind. Elvenstar was also my gateway into the wider world of modding, I had no idea of all that before.

Build me an army worthy of Mordor!

My first mod was Elven Star as well.
Then I played KotW which is where I read the readme and I think I read a link to T3A.
But I spent a lot of time enjoying mods.
But I was always looking for mods that changed the campaign.

A tiny mod called Hero Boost Mod
its the only one I could install
only an ini file .. so I replaced the original one with this

SEE got me into modding as I desperately wanted Blackriders to mount Nazguls
I couldn't get SEE to install so I tried to mod it in

A second question somewhat related for the modders here (which is most of us now days).

Which mod really inspired you start and which one inspired you by it's creativity.

Elvenstar of course was the starting for me, and Grim's Hero mod and Deezire's mod both impressed me with their great coding.
I'd recommend newer coders to check out Grim's Hero mod it's one of the earlier mods that tried some new things.

I would say mods such as the RC, TDH, T4A, MME, TEA, KotW and I would really say the Lone Wolf inspired me.
Mainly because they show how much you can do just by putting time into modding.
Even with the Lone Wolf lagging on my old PC, I had to enjoy that mod the most :p

I'd say Elvenstar, since most other mods at the time died or where minimods.

My first mode ever played hmm ... Tricky one I recall it was a early version of RJ-ROTWK back then when I was on BFME Vault forums .But I know of Third Age from Four Ages Mod witch I still love .But on that period I was following Rhovannion Alliance .

My most inspired mod was , well , ( all good mods in a way ) but I think it was ... Rhovannion Alliance and ... TEA .( witch for a long time I thought TEA was a beta of RA - silly me )

I'm pretty sure it was either Elvenstar or Rise of Rome.

Loved Grim's Hero mod, it was so completely different to anything else, it really blew me away.

I do remember that I followed the Rhovonian Alliance mod first.
I didn't know much so I thought it was Bfme3 :xd:
