And that can be questioned, too. I mean, heels on boots were a pretty old thing in real life. Iirc, the Bactrian or Persian cavalry in antiquity had those, maybe even someone before them, too. Plus, since the LotR is "medieval" fantasy, we can't really say that boots don't have heels, right?  :razz:

Yeah its a silly thing to object to for sure in a fantasy game, when there are much more flagrant unrealisms. but it just looks really modern to my eyes, like I could buy what that rhun soldiers wearing on my highstreet today. Whereas I wish I could buy cool medieval shoes I see in other mods on the high street  :lol:

Well we are not so keen on changing smaller details on the designs, perhaps stuff to keep in mind for more original designs. :smile:

Ah, I see. The price of using a movie for inspiration.
I don't think the elements from the movie are the main problem. When Warner Bros C&D'd merp, they didn't focus on stuff specifically from the movies. The project being LotR was enough. Though of course the stakes are risen when it is linked to an expensive movie franchise.

Yes but donating to the cause will still be an option I imagine.
Not likely.

We have been using the same resolutions as Bannerlord and smaller poly counts, we should have similar performance to the base game.

@John_M Seeing those axes makes me wonder. What do you have planned for gore? Will you be able to behead orcs etc? I've never been too bloodthirsty with video games, but I was curious to what level you were thinking of going with koa?

Honestly theres nothing beyond native gore planned. Cutting off limbs doesn't check my cool or realism boxes, so I wont be a big advocate for it.

The great part about module-based modding is that you can easily use multiple mods together. I'm sure that there will be a mod involving dismemberment at some point. You may be able to use this mod alongside Kingdoms of Arda to provide you with that type of experience.
