Description: The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth 2 - Realism Mod

This is a mod for Battle for Middle Earth 2 that rebalances nearly every unit in the game, allows units to heal, adds the Elven Guard, and greatly increases the strength of buildings and walls.


This mod is a compilation of 2 of the best BFME2 mods (Elven Guard and Monster & Banner Regen), used with permission by the authors of those mods and made compatible with each other, combined with my own extensive rebalancing of all the units and structures.

Buildings are 4-5 times stronger now, giving you time to get to a farm or tower that is under attack, and greatly increasing the need to use seige weapons (which are unnecessary in the normal game as soldiers can destroy a building in a matter of seconds). Defensive structures can hold off small raiding parties by themselves, freeing your units to explore the map and take the fight to the enemy!

Unit upgrades are toned down, especially the fire arrows and Silverthorn arrows, which often dominated the game.

Many previously useless units are improved, such as the Ork and Goblin swordsmen, Mumakil, Spiderlings, and many of the heroes. Others that were too powerful, such as Mirkwood archers, have been toned down a bit.

In all, I hope you'll agree this mod makes the game far more interesting and balanced!
