Join the Dark Side and you will be crushed! Satisfaction -> Guaranteed!
It is fully save game compatible with your previous DarthMod "Mythos Edition" or "Epic Edition".
It is required to uninstall the previous version and then install this new one. Read the simple installation instructions
Drastic CAI tweaks for a better diplomacy, challenge and effective Britain. AI ships should be repaired too.
Land & Naval Autocalc Improvements.
Mass improvements. Melee penetration much more intense.
BAI decisioning improvements. It should be more challenging.
Canister should have better trajectories (Thanks to Bran Mac Born tip about high elevation).
Soldier synchronization even more realistic.
All 40 Unit Saves refreshed.
many requests, the Launcher offers now the option of "Auto-Start" or
"Manual-Start". In "Manual-Start" you can set the Launcher options and
then use the official game shortcut to play the game. Use this method to
launch DarthMod if you anticipate CTD at startup.
to all who gave feedback for the latest open beta: Twcenter.net
especially to Bran Mac Born, Centaure, Whatthefunk and Hawkeye.
Version 2.6+++ "Epic Edition"
BAI and melee mechanics fine tune. Now you should enjoy the game to the maximum. Prepare for powerful AI musket Lines.
Version 2.6++ "Epic Edition"
Better Musket Accuracy Balance ideal for situations like "Ready... Aim... Fire!!!" ! Meaning that muskets are now better at close range fire due to more effective targeting calibration and you can rout units more easily with correctly timed volleys (as the AI).
Formation improvements that make ΒΑΙ not to prefer so much the angled/flank attacks that could make it not use its artillery always properly.
AI Diplomacy stances less strict so to give more breathing space to minor nations against the big nations.
The AI should now attack/defend/make musket lines even more effectively. It should also use its reserves more efficiently.
Tweaks in morale. Morale much more dynamic.
Tweaks in combat animation mechanics.
Rank fire available from the start of any campaign without the need of research.
Garrison units have now special stats (Much better in defense, much worse in attack than their normal counterparts).
Balanced better the naval battles damage & accuracy system.
Balanced slightly better the Land battles projectile damage system.
All buildings are 10 times more resilient against artillery so as not to be deathtraps for garrison as before.
Mass changes for excellent battle realism, even greater than before!
Annoying incidents in which there was zero lethality after musket, land or naval cannon fire are now fixed/balanced much better.
Canister should have now straighter trajectories and generally will be more effective.
AI should now flank with cavalry much more often.
Greeks and Greek Rebels no longer speak Turkish as in Vanilla (English is now their voice, cannot be changed to something else better).
Version 2.6+ "Epic Edition"
Several new improvements that affect Battle AI positively for even greater and more challenging battles. DarthMod Napoleon has now 300% better Battle AI from vanilla = guaranteed. Those who still do not believe just try and see (especially in campaign battles).
Melee mechanics improvements (better reactions, more lively engagements).
Better animation mechanics, more realistic. (Less synchronised volleys, better sounds, less lag).
43 new Garrison units that make sieges far more interesting. No longer you will face only weak armed citizenry but instead you will have to battle against experienced Line infantry and trained Militia, according to town income. These troops are available for the human player too when he defends. (In previous version this was not implemented fully and caused bugs = you could not disband some units or after the battle they dissapeared. Now this very irritating bug is fixed).
Howitzers more accurate and effective.
Quicklime and Carcass more effective.
Many more projectile improvements. For example muskets are having even more realistic firing trajectories. You can feel how the musket is better at the hands of a trained soldier than an inexperienced militia. Enable the improved projectile trails to watch how deadly or unstable at the same time can be a musket barrage.
Squares more effective against cavalry.
Fortifications slightly less expensive as requested.
Musket sounds enriched with the magnificently recorded sounds of General Andy. You can find his standalone mod here: Twcenter.net (General Andy's Musket Sounds). DarthMod now uses possibly the best musket sound mix of the community. Read the credits for more info.
The 1X MP setting is now enabling normal vanilla unit size so you can freely change unit size or play DarthMod multiplayer without any issues.
Version 2.6 "Epic Edition"
Battle AI is greater than ever due to formations and other parameters adjustments. It will really give you a hard time winning it, especially when it has artillery and a good general.
Multiplayer with DarthMod enabled should now be fixed.
Now there is richer garrison (Militia and many types of Line infantry) and also it costs when in siege (so Human campers will not wait for the AI to attack all the time because they may risk bankruptcy). This simulates the cost of a siege for the defender.
Battle autocalc improved as requested.
Gun reload rates extreme re-balance for better battle realism and challenge.
Musketing morale impact is greater so that only the elite troops can stand under heavy fire long enough (or when they have a good officer around).
General projectile lethality enhanced.
Melee mechanics tweaked even better for more cinematic feel.
Artillery more devastating.
CAI better re-balance especially for France and Britain which should be more effective in the campaign map.
CAI recruitment better with more special and elite troops.
Fortifications have much more cost so that they are rare in the map.
CAI should be not so aggressive to minor nations and must be slightly more reasonable.
Diplomacy gift impact reduced (was requested).
Howitzer impact slightly more powerful.
Unit population cost nullified because in some campaigns caused problems (For example in Penninsula Campaign it made Towns too small and no more units could be built).
Trade ports can now build warships so that the CAI can build powerful navies. As a tradeport becomes upgraded it can build bigger ships and smaller ships become obsolete.
Improvements in effects (Musket muzzle flash much more realistic, Quicklime smoke effect more realistic, Water impact effects are now realistic and not tiny and gamey as in vanilla).
Extreme Naval Battle rebalance. Many changes to make the naval battles as realistic, challenging and beautiful as possible. For example you can now feel the mass and slow reaction time of a ship type and also there is simulation of how tides affect a ship's firing trajectory. The smaller ships shake a lot so they are not as effective in long range targeting as the bigger warships which remain more stationary in the water. But even for the bigger ships you notice this very realistic effect, as they shake after they take hits or they fire etc. so that you think you play a real naval battle.
Some minor Launcher fixes to provide more accurate log reports.
Projectile trails improved (Those you enable from the launcher).
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like DarthMod Napoleon. We love games like Napoleon: Total War that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Bigger and better
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Introducing Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
