A preview of the added mods

Many of you asked to add the following mods to DarthMod: Shogun II and now finally you have them!

Alternative Clan Colours by Demokritos

Demokritos uniform color research
A must have mod for every player of Total War: Shogun 2. After the thorough research of Demokritos, the author, all units of Sengoku period have realistic uniform and banners colors.

Just pay attention to these images. Do you see the difference? Soldiers have much more variety in appearance thanks to the magnificent touch of =Vastator=. All Sengoku period of every DLC have this careful design.

You aren't going to mod Rome 2? I will probably love Rome 2 but I was really excited to see what you did with it too. Either way you made some really great content, all of these modders did.

So thank you for producing these I will always have fond memories of beating my friends to a pulp while using your mods.

this is irritating,i can't play your mod,it automatically CTD while initially loading at startup......same happens to Darthmod Napoleon where it crashed at startup loading screen,no one will help or post a fix? and please don't tell me the very unhelpful things like update your windows or your sound drivers because that is common sense.

YMMV but I had the same problem with Darthmod in Empire and after trying everything, I reduced my settings to High and it's been working fine ever since...

After purchasing all the shogun 2 DLC during the summer sales I decided to give the game another shot.

Fresh shogun 2 install
Darthmod V 5.0 Full install

No matter which mod configuration I choose with the darthmod, the game crashes on loading. Tips on how to get the mod running would be highly appreciated.

Uahoo :)

Darth, thanks so much for all you have done for the Total War series players..

The vanilla games can not compete against your work, seriously, your mods were the only reason I kept playing Total War games.

Thanks for this "Last" update, and thanks for all the work you have put into this.

--
I, as everyone here, repect your choice, but keep in mind that you will be missed, you, and your work :(

I wish you the best for your future projects, whatever they will be.

Farewell Darth, your name will live forever in the true Total War players. :')
