    Peoples of Middle Earth is an altered melee MOD for Warcraft III. At the moment, it still is in Alpha testing.

    Pick one faction, build your own base, create your army, upgrade your units, and crush your ennemies! Here is what it is expected from you! The goal remains the same as any Warcraft III melee, but through the Lord of the Rings universe.

    I plan to release this project as a MOD. In that way, it will include a custom MPQ and a custom launcher in order to play on several maps with all the factions.

    • The project is dead until we find a new AI maker. If you're interested in joining us or if you know someone, please don't hesitate to tell us. The AI is the only missing field to the release of Alpha v1.1.


    ReadMe that you should read because you know that's a ReadMe
    Version : Alpha
    Langage : French

    This version contains the two first factions of the MOD :
    - Gondor : select 'Human' when creating a game (prototype of AI)
    - Misty Mountains : select 'Orc' when creating a game (no AI)

    How to install?
    - Copy the file "PeoplesOfMiddleEarthAlpha.w3x" to
    the following directory : "[...]\Warcraft III\Maps\
    - The folder "English strings" contains the English translation
    of Gondor units/buildings/upgrades and attack/defense system
    (it is recommended to open those files in notepad++; impossible
    to see in game in this version)


    Notes :
    The last patch (1.27b) is needed to play the map in multiplayer.

    You can join the project if you have those necessary skills :
    • able to create a model and/or animate it
    • able to create an artwork (loading screens, icons, logo, etc...)
    • able to make an AI
    Otherwise, here are some requests I made. +rep for helpers!



    Feel free to give your opinion on this project! I'll give credits to modellers (etc...) once the mod will be released.

    models look nice
    except of the "goblins", they are supposed to be trolls and the models are from dota2, so i think they dont fit to the other cool models

    A .exe that will serve to install the custom MPQ and run the game taking into account this new MPQ.
