The DarthMod series of mods continues to improve the AI and gameplay of Total War games.
As always, the mod’s main scope is to destroy the “weak” arcade factors and replace them with realistic features.
Witness now Total War: Shogun 2 as you have ever wanted.

It is compatible with any DLC and campaign (Sengoku Period, Rise of the Samurai, Fall of the Samurai).

Generally it improves every crucial gameplay factor while it stays close to the feel of the original game.

 It does not affect your game installation as you can enable and disable it via a special launcher application.
Furthermore you can use additional mods and options with a few clicks.


In DarthMod: Shogun II you will enjoy a redesigned melee system
which makes battles look like real, "really real"!

When 2 armies clash, you will notice violent pushes, formation penetrations, heroic 1vs1 melees,
as it would look in a real battle of the era.

Arrows spread realistically and are powerful according to the skill of the bowmen,
but still no match against the matchlocks.

Sieges are really challenging because the new morale, melee and projectile system
create a chaotic and difficult to handle environment.

Even the naval battles are much improved and are a joy to watch,
fun to play and, most importantly, difficult to master!

All Total War: Shogun 2 DLC and Campaigns are supported
and the realistic battle atmosphere becomes complete
 with super effects that do not decrease FPS but increase it!

You want this!
Do not get lost in Feudal Japan's war turmoil!
DarthMod Shogun is the mod you were, are and will look for!

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.

WHAT A DRAG.. I want to play this game and the darthmod wont work again...I've tried just about everything, including a reinstall. On the start up screen, it acts like its loading the game. But then if you press escape all the sudden it ctd's and acts like it was never even running. If you don't press anything it just sits there until you press a button which takes you back to step 1. all in all this mod is fun but it's not working very reliably and now i don't even know what to do except uninstall and play vanilla :( total bummer.

I've also reinstalled it twice for other reasons and all 3 times I have had issues with naval battles, and yes I did post in TW forums as well.

I have been using version 3.0 all along and that's where I'm getting crashes. I doubt reinstalling is gonna help me much. Maybe I should change the naval unit size or something so my pc can handle them... I dunno what to do quite honestly and it's a little bit disappointing that I can't use the naval battles for DMS. Even without it, the land base game is still worth keeping. Hopefully time will find you a solution to make the naval battles less likely to CTD.

I have just checked and Naval Battles do not CTD in version 3.0 (And this bug did not exist for many versions before)

You must spend some time to uninstall DMS and then install version 3.0. It is a few minutes job.
Then come and tell me if this procedure has fixed your problem.

Have you also posted that in TWCenter?
When does the crash happens? When there is boarding action?

ok i reinstalled game and its working again... I like the mod when it works, the only drawback so far seems to be that you can't really view individual units fighting as well because of all the extra units slowing the game down too much.. But on a large picture frame it plays so much more epic than the original. My other concern is that with all the big armies I'm gonna face I have to wonder how feasible it is to win this game with any clan. We shall see, it was impossible enough with the original on proper settings, and it's usually because the time clock creeps up on you and you run out of years... They should know we all want more time than 40 years to dominate a whole country.

I'm having issues with this mod...I used it for a couple of hours...no problem. Tried a couple naval battles, game crashed twice in same battle during boarding battles and now the game won't even get past initial loading screen, even without using darthmod.. Restarted pc..nothing. maybe i'll try the game at single size units but wdf.
