After seeing a certain Game Theory episode, I started wondering: How much is the currency in Middle-earth -- the Silver Coin -- worth in real life dollars?
For this comparison, I am going to use Canadian dollars, due to my living in Canada. As you'll soon see, there are quite a few ways to approach this question.
An ingot of silver consists of 1/9th of a block of Silver, which measuring 1m3, would have a mass of 10.5. That means that the silver block weighs a total of 10.5 metric tons, and each ingot would weigh 1.167 tons.
Now consider that you can get nine nuggets of silver out of an ingot, and each nugget makes one coin. Therefore, each coin weighs 130kg. With today's silver prices ($767 Canadian/kg), that one coin would cos…

Ever installed MPM with the LOTR Mod and experienced the weird blackscreen?
This can be fixed by disabeling the PoV setting from MPM, but sadly, that also disables that feature, which means that for example if you choose the Balrog model, your "Point of View" (PoV) is stil the player one, not the high Point of View a Balrof (or any comparable large model) would have.
I created a small mod which fixes that - MPM-LOTR. Just download it and drop it into your mods folder, voila.
- v35.3/v35.4 of the LOTR Mod
- 1.7.10b of MPM (https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/more-player-models/files/2242988)

Hello all, I am writing this blog post to inform the community of a collective staff decision that was made this week. As many of you are aware, this wiki has a discord server which is utilized for discussions related to the mod and wiki, as well as to provide a less structured digital hang-out area for LOTR Mod fans, specifically those who are wiki members. The wiki forum is also utilized for more structured discussions of various topics, Suggestions and Bug Reports primarily.
As the wiki staff, we have come to the conclusion that the behavior of many users of both the wiki and the discord server have been allowed to let the rules of both discussions platforms slide beyond what we believe to be acceptable, and the staff as a collective hav…Read more >
Playing on a server with Emmaitar but wondering how many paintings they have?
Well, here's the solution, use the brand new NEI plugin for Emmaitar (well, it's not that new, but anyway ...)!
You don't know what Emmaitar is? It's an awesome mod from Mevans itself, which allows the addition of custom paintings to Minecraft.
- Integrates the painting recipes in NEI crafting and usage mode - with displaying the actual painting
- Adds a painting button to the crafting table which - upon clicking it - shows every painting registered via Emmaitar
- Contains an integrated version checker which notifies you about new versions
- Make sure the required mods are installed (see below)
- Download the plugin from CurseForge or Github (see below)
- Start the game

Man it's been way too long since I did one of these, but here goes nothing. Region spotlight is back, and I will hopefully be doing it slightly more often from now on (I'll aim for ~ once a month). But anyways, what region shall I feature this time?
Today I have chosen a region that looks slightly different with the new resource pack than it did in the past and is located just west of the Misty Mountains. It's Dunland.
Dunland is north of Isengard and west of the Misty Mountains, somewhat to the south of Eregion. If you come from Gondor direction, head along the Greenway and turn north soon after the Fords of Isen. If you come from Bree, follow the Greenway until you're about halfway through Enedwaith, and head eastwards.

Good day everyone,
A good many things were changed in , but among them, one of the greatest changes was that to horses & other mounts, so that their movement is controlled client-side, rather than server-side.
While for lots of people, this was a great fix, for a few others, including myself, this change resulted in horses becoming extraordinarily slow, barely the speed of sneaking.
Just this morning, I think I've found a fix for this problem. The fix is quite straightforwards, and takes maybe 5 minutes to complete.
The problem (as far as I gather) occurs when the mod is downloaded as a
.zipfile, as opposed to a
.jarfile. For more about what's happening, see the picture below.
When downloaded the mod will end up in your default downloads director…

Hello every, Fronacen here. For anyone who recognizes me, I'll be a sight for sore eyes.
With the latest update out for the mod, I have decided to start a blog series, a retrospective as it were.
Of course, retrospective usually implies something has run its course: that is not what am saying about this mod. Instead, I want to use my experience with this mod and it's many updates to critically look back at what has happened with this mod. This is not meant as a review of the mod.
I would also like to point out a few things:
First of all, for those who don't know, I have been watching this mod for a LONG time (I believe way back in July, 2013, when Mirkwood was added). For people at home, that means since Beta 7. I have seen a lot, both mod-add…Read more >
I recently added a mod called realistic livestock, the mod replaces the models of the animals of the own minecraft

Good day folks,
I've been around here a while. A long while, actually. In fact, I am the second oldest still active wiki contributor, and have seen my fair share of moments on the wiki, from great collaborations on projects to angry arguments resulting in the ban of multiple users.
Yet I've been playing the mod for even longer, for nearly six years, in fact. Over that time, the mod has also grown greatly, going from a small mod that added a few regions and factions of Middle-earth in a randomly-generated pattern (still accessible if you use Middle-earth Classic world generation) to a mod that adds in the entire continent of Middle-earth, along with almost all of its factions.
Even though all this time has passed, and I've grown considerably o…Read more >

If you think baby orcs should not be born in The Shire and then crawl their way down to Mordor (probably why they keep talking about maggots!), or on the contrary if you wonder why those so-called quiet people originating from The Shire are making all the fuss everywhere in Arda, then you may be interested by what follows:
rndtp (RaNDom TelePort) is a server-side mod that you can use for randomly teleporting players into specific areas.
It's designed for server operators to be used in server signs / pressure plates / command blocks in a server spawn in order to spread players on their chosen faction territory.
While not specifically dedicated to the Lord of the Rings mod, this mod has a companion set of directories/files enabling you to teleport a…Read more >
Ambience of Middle-earth is a music pack which adds the sounds of the world to Middle-earth. From a gentle breeze rolling across the shire, the staccato chatter of birds in the jungles of Harad, or the eerie sounds of water dripping from stalactites in a cave, this pack (hopefully!) adds a new element to the environment.
It is highly recommended that this pack be used with an increased minimum time between music tracks (can be changed via "mods" button from Minecraft's main menu), or be used in conjunction with a second music pack.
Due to the way the music system works, sometimes tracks will continue to play even if you've left the area they are meant to play in. If this bothers you too much, you can reset the music by going into your opti…

Hello Everyone, I've decided to create a Map of Greater Rohan; Including Isengard, Dunland, The Adornland, Rohan and Fangorn
By now, many of you have seen Grevious' Mordor map. And I wanted to try and build on that (not to take away from his or replace) because many people out there might not have the time or the skills to re-create rohan. This is just the start, only including Isengard with; The Tower of Orthanc, Caverns of Isengard, Campsites and a re-done biome and wall. It is available to be downloaded.
Just for the Beginning you will spawn just outside Nan-Curunir, on the path. Later on i will make a camp with supplies and fill out Structures with Resources.
Here’s a list (so far), with descriptions, of the builds included:

About a day ago, I got to play around with an oxy-hydrogen torch, that burns at around 3200 oC. I made some solutions of various metal salts, such as NaCl, KBr, Sr(CH3COO)2, CuSO4, and put these solutions into the hot flame. When I did this I got some beautiful colours.
Some of these emission lines, such as Na, K, Li, and Cu, you may have seen in fireworks. Sr can be seen in road flares. But I'm sure you haven't seen all these flame colours.

Bear with me, this could be a little confusing.
Now, this is a cool trick I discovered a while back. It's a little resource consuming, it can only be used in pretty specific lighting, but it looks pretty cool.
Here's a picture of the end result in a WIP Gundabad build I started ages ago:
So, looking pretty cool, isn't it? This is how you do it.
Alright, first choose where you want the food item to lie. We'll call that block 1.
Block 2 is directly adjacent to block 1, and you'll dig three blocks down from block 2. Place a torch at the bottom of the hole.
Mine out the block under block 1 and put a plate there.
Following me? No? Alright, here's how it should look.
Understand now? Excellent. It takes a little less than 64 food items to show through b…

Why hello there.
It's been a while since I've done this, but with a rather messy winter storm bearing down on my house, I figured why not do this since I really don't have anything else to do.
The region I have chosen to feature today is actually more of a region variant than a true region. It's rather wet, and is the kind of location where people like to build cottages in real life. That's right, it's a lake.
Lakes and ponds can be found as uncommon variants of most regions of Middle-earth. The exact location of each lake/pond depends on the world seed, and varies depending on the world, although fixed lakes are found near Esgaroth, north of the Shire, and scattered along the Anduin.
Lakes can be differentiated into actual lakes, which are the…

Complete with color maps and in-depth battle profiles, each chapter explores 1-3 months of the Clone Wars at a time, treating the conflict as one massive story, from the widely-known battles of…Read more >
Today, I watched a video on AntVenom's channel, in which he tries to answer the question, "is Minecraft (vanilla, modded, otherwise) dying?" By all accounts of sales figures and active players, the answer to that question is no. The game is still selling well, and more people have played Minecraft in November than in the past several years. So the game isn't dying by a numbers point of view.
But, you can also look at it from a more philosophical point of view: has Minecraft lost the charm that attracted players years ago? To answer this, watch AntVenom's video on the topic below.
After watching this video, it got me thinking. We're in a similar situation with the Lord of the Rings mod in that it's been around for a good many years (close …

As the title implies, who are the Variags? I know there are quite a few loremasters in this wiki. I have been doing some extensive research on the Variags, and have come up with my own theories. This is really just a post on my theories, feel free to chime in.
First off the word Variag, now the obvious answer is that it is a play on Varangian. The Varangians were Vikings that travelled east into modern day Russia, Belorussia, Ukraine, Moldova, Turkey, and even as far as Greece. They are famous for the Varangian guard, a guard of 2,000 Varangians that protected the emperor of the Byzantines. But the true history lies in Russia. See back in the Dark ages the people of Novgorod wanted a strong ruler, so they asked a Varangian chieftain to lead…Read more >
I Think this mod is great and that it deserves a lot of attention and that it should continue.
Mevans is a cool mod creator i'm glad he made a mod for Tolkien becuase i love Lotr and read all the books.
The mod is very fun and a great questing mod i have never seen a mod that had a questing system like this.
The plant and worldgen is also very cool and i like how the Mobs will interact and talk with the player.

Good day, LotR Mod community,
After having some fun breaking the mod, I have decided to write a post in where I see the mod going in the future.
Before going any further, the thoughts in this post are mine and mine alone, and none of what I write here is a suggestion for any specific feature to be added. Please see the Suggestions forum if you want to learn more about concrete features that should be added. These are just the areas where I would focus my energy if I were the developer of this mod.14:23, September 22, 2018 (UTC) Read more >
Good day, everyone,
If any of you have watched AntVenom's videos as of late, you know what he likes to do; break Minecraft, in literally any way possible. I got inspired by him, and figured, why not try and break the Lord of the Rings mod? One of the most obvious ways to do this would be, of course, the alignment; what happens when this reaches a very high number, namely, the 32-bit integer limit (2,147,483,647)? Minecraft is known, after all, to do all kinds of wierd things when numbers roll over this value.
This would've taken forever to do in regular gameplay, or using commands, as the max alignment you can add at any one time is 10,000, so I used an NBT-editor to accomplish this. And, yes, I was indeed able to get up to the 32 bit intege…

Please note that the users depicted aren't meant to be representative of their real life personalities and all creative choices with them were made for comedic purposes only.

Despite rumours suggesting otherwise, the mod's development isn't dead, and neither are region spotlights, although their whereabouts have been rather "spotty" at times. But finally I've found myself a rainy evening, and I've fixed the wireless card in my regular PC, and am able to write you a new region spotlight, this one will be about the lands of Lindon on the extreme Western edge of the continent of Middle-Earth.
Lindon isn't hard to find, even if you're new to visiting Middle-Earth. To get there from the spawn in the Shire, simply follow the Great East Road westward until you can't go any further, and you'll get into Lindon after passing through Eriador and the Tower Hills. If you're coming from the sea, head towards the islands and t…

King Aragorn II Elessar
It was on the time that the Dark Lord Sauron, last of Melkor’s true servants, was defeated, that Aragorn Elessar, first of his name was crowned King of Gondor by Mithrandir, shortly before his departure to Valinor. This began the 4th age by the Gondorian reckoning. Following a number of weeks of rebuilding the capital of Minas Tirith, and its surrounding areas (the Rammas, the walls of Osgiliath, etc.) he focussed on larger issues. The new Khan of the Golden Khaganate had already sent letters asking for peace, in an effort to…Read more >

Any option would be interesting to discuss for the time being.

If any of you follow the French Discord channel, you might've heard my announcement regarding the fact that I was considering doing a region spotlight at some point in the near future. Those that follow the French Discord will probably guess what region I'm highlighting in this issue, I am featuring "les montagnes rouges" a.k.a. the Red Mountains.
If you're not familiar with the location of the Red Mountains, I don't blame you man. They are located rather far to the East of most of Middle-Earth (curiously, east of the region that's "The West"), around the Eastern centre of Rhûn. Four clans of Dwarves lived in these mountains, though not much was known about them, as they presumably had little contact with their relatives in …
