It was pointless to resist... The DarthMod series of Mods strikes back to destroy all gameplay inconsistencies of the original game and offer you better AI, realistic battles and unequaled challenge.

I don't think battle AI difficulty changes AI behavior at all, only difference is that easy AI have morale and accuracy nerfs, while the hard AI has ridiculous accuracy and morale bonuses.

Not at all GriffinZ, if you say that its because you never played any DM modifications for Total War games. ;)


Ok, thanks ;), I really liked the fact that melee fights are more chaotic in some way.. There is no more a defined line separating the 2 armies.. Its a mess of soldiers of both factions fighting everywhere..

Really nice..


I also noticed in one moment of the video that the cavalry shot their pistols all of them at the same time, although they werent riding together.. DK if this is some kind of bug, or glitch, or just a matter of luck..

Hard battle difficulty. And these tactics are not yet optimised.

I've never played DM? Lolwut, I just noticed that expert AI wins with militia against elite soldiers, in front to front musket battles, and melee. But that was pretty long ago, several version ago. Now I only fight hard battle AI so...

Well, it seems that you have to Try the newest versions ;)..

Also Modifications for other Total War Games, like Napoleon, and Shogun 2. Masterworks.


Although I have to agree with you, Hard difficulty is probably the best one, and the most enjoyable of all.

Looks very good. I love the current DMUC, I can only imagine this will be even better. I have a few questions, though :)

When can we expect it to be released? Will it affect the game in new ways compared to DMUC 7.0? Also, will there finally be a campaign for (and with) all emergent factions?
