    I don't want to sound harsh - every fantasy or Sci-Fi mod is a good thing in my book, but why has it always to be LOTR? There are myriads of Fantasy worlds out there (and you can also crate a unique one by yourself) lots of them lengths better and more interesting than Middle Earth. Why not try something different for a change?

    Well, there are many other Fantasy Worlds, and many other modders. So I propose doing what each of one likes the most, and we will have all of them. In my case, I choose LOTR, because I don't know anything about other Fantasy Worlds. I leave that work to other modders.

    And the LOTR lore, landscape, ethnicity, balance power, etc... is kind of a classic. I'm not invested enough in Civ's modding [yet!] to help, but I sure will try it! Civ5's version was fun to play, thank you for your work ispanets!

    War Chicken, nothing stops someone else to make a Riftwar Sage's overhaul. Let the modders do something they are interested in, that's how we get good and creative mods. Modders won't work on something they are not interested in.

    @yenyang by now, we are making just a scenario. We don't know the handicaps we are going to find. Fancy joining us?

    @ispanets I think so, but I'd like to create a non-scenario version as well. can we chat on steam sometime this weekend? Is there a time during the day that works for us to do that? I'm in the Pacific Time Zone.
    Edit: I thought we were friends on steam, but I didn't see you on my list. I also couldn't find your mods on the workshop. Did you take them down or is there some other reason I can't see them?

    I took them out because I could not keep them up to date and with the game updates they started to have HUGE bugs. Yes, let's chat there. My user name is ispanets (I think), I remember you too. I will send you a message.

    Are the Corsairs meant to be Umbar, or are they random Pirates.

    Yes they are the Corsairs of Umbar:) The Tengwar script actually says "Umbar" in Sindarin classic mode.

    Subject to change but here is a look at the civic UI. The Icons are not done yet until we have access to the SDK for now, the plan thus far is too make the UI kinda look different for each civilization or cultural group we shall see :) So here is a potential look for Gondor and Lothlorien.
