Resource packs are files that can contain textures and sounds that change default mod assets. There are several reasons for creating a resource pack, including creating armour/weapons that look more like those in Peter Jackson’s films, more like the author's preferences, or making more lore-friendly textures.

Immersion[edit | edit source]

Authors: Quin
Available Resolutions: 32x
Pack Version: alpha_6.0-36
Mod Version: Update 36.4
Last Update: 15 July 2020
Wiki Pack Page: Resource Packs/Immersion

Description:
This Resource pack aims to bring the LotR mod to a higher level of detail, by increasing the resolution of and expanding on all vanilla and LotR mod blocks, though it will eventually include textures for items and mobs. Currently, the resource pack is only being developed at a 32x resolution, and is in mid alpha. The pack will not provide a seamless experience yet, but can still be enjoyed, and already includes over 550 total textures, and all vanilla blocks.

The next step for the pack is its beta 1 release, which will include all block textures both found and crafted in The Shire, so as to allow a complete experience for anyone who remains within The Shire.

A pack changelog can be found here

NATURAL BLOCKS NOT SUPPORTED: For the best experience, disable "natural blocks" in the LotR mod config. It can be found from the title screen under Mods -> The Lord of the Rings Mod -> config -> Environment & World.

Description:
Have you ever struggled to find the hobbit that blew that smoke ring in the... Oh wait, that's a... new moon?

In real life, even when possible, it is very difficult to see a halo around a new moon with the naked eye. However, in the LotR mod, the new moon halo is very visible. BetterMoon Lotr rectifies this discrepancy by removing the halo around the new moon.

Description:
It can be somewhat disappointing to put on an orcish helmet, only to realize that the eye sockets don't align with your eyes. "Orcish Helmets for Human Eyes" eliminates this issue by expanding the eye sockets for compatibility with both human and orcish eye alignment. Here is a list of the affected textures:

  • Angmar Helmet
  • Black Uruk Helmet
  • Dol Guldur Helmet
  • Mordor Orc Helmet
  • Uruk Helmet

Amazing Orc Names[edit | edit source]

Authors: Hûkrag
Available Resolutions: N/A

Mod Version: Update 34
Last Update: 24 March 2019
Wiki Pack Page: N/A

Description:
Are you tired of seeing Shagbegs as you walk the streets of Goblin Town? Detest seeing Mauums (happened to me) on your journey to Lugburz? Well, this changes all of that! Now your orcs can have special prefixes, so you'll be seeing Yubnaks, Skorzshas, and Dukshoshs going to war soon! Suffixes are now ready.

Installation Instructions:
To install this pack, you need to merge the files with the LotR mod assets. First, download the pack, then open the LotR mod directory in 7-zip or WinRar, and go to the LotR mod. Go to assets, then lotr, then names, and then uncompress this pack. Take the document, and without editing it in any way (unless you want to add more orc prefixes and/or suffixes), move it into the names file. It will ask you if you want to update this file, so accept, and then you will have your new orc names!

Note:
This pack does not work online, unless the host has the resource pack installed.

Respect the Boss[edit | edit source]

Authors: Dragonovith
Available Resolutions: N/A
Pack Version: N/A
Mod Version: Beta 33
Last Update: 1 August 2017
Wiki Pack Page: N/A

Description:
Do you have thousands of alignment points with Mordor? Is the mere pronunciation of your name enough to spread fear and despair among the free peoples of Middle-earth? It doesn't matter if the answer to these questions is yes or no, the Orcs of Mordor will still treat you like a stinking and worthless maggot! This resource pack aims to change that.

With this pack, the orcs of Mordor will treat you more respectfully—after all, you're a death machine, a herald of chaos and destruction! If you like roleplaying, I suggest that you install this pack after you get more than +1000 alignment points with Mordor.

Installation Instructions:
To install this pack you will need to combine the pack's "assets" folder with the LotR mod's "assets" folder. To do this, open Respect the Boss.zip and LOTRMod v34.3.jar with a program like WinRar or 7-Zip, then drag the "assets" folder from Respect the Boss.zip to LOTRMod v34.3.jar's root folder.

Note:
This pack does not work online, unless the host has the resource pack installed.

The First Age Submod[edit | edit source]

Authors: The Eras of Arda Team
Mod Version: Update 34
Last Update: 17 April 2019
Wiki Submod Page: Resource Packs/The First Age Submod

Description:
The First Age Submod is an edited version of the Lord of the Rings Mod* developed by Valiec and the Eras of Arda team. We use an edited map that adds Beleriand to the map, and removes the rest of Middle-earth. The submod adds many new factions to the mod. Some of these factions are brand-new, custom coded in - and some of them are factions from the LotR mod that have been renamed and repurposed. You can play as an elf of Doriath, a man from Dor-lómin, or an orc of Angband.

*Note that this is the only submod that has been given authorisation by Mevans to distribute the mod's code.
