In the darkest age of Japan, endless war leaves a country divided. It is the middle of the 16th Century in Feudal Japan. The country, once ruled by a unified government, is now split into many warring clans. Ten legendary warlords strive for supremacy as conspiracies and conflicts wither the empire. Only one will rise above all to win the heart of a nation as the new shogun...

Anyone else have it where all of your main enemies constantly attack your one naval base that you start out with in the game? I've never lost due to the way the map is they will bring in 20 ships at me fairly often and mostly just shoot each other due to attack a defense platform which in this game does absolutely nothing but they will sink like half of their forces if not most of them and all I have to do is take one ship and just attack at range until they die. I win and then rinse and repeat over and over and somehow they always have another group of ships waiting for me all I got to do is play defense while I bit by bit take over the map.

This mod is cool but clearly didn't improve the ship ai at all it's dumber than ever if anything.

The mod is great on almost everything. But it seems that naval battles are absolutely broken. It's nearly impossible to board a ship, the siege tower bunes never shoot their matchlock and other units also seem to take forever to try to use their weapon. I also get yari wall formation problems where they would break off formation prematurely. Is it just me? Any help please?

Game is not that great, I prefer Medieval II over this. With all the charging for the DLC contents, might as well just download mods for this game off of moddb. "Charging For DLC" = Epic Fail.

Also, I feel as if Shogun II developers are trying to torture me with the game's start-up logo wait time. I'm losing patience with this game, why does it take Medieval II seconds to load and an eternity for Shogun II.
