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!

Hey darth, quick thing.

When this first came out and I installed it, I was fed up with the army sizes so i manually went to the preferences text file to change the unit multiplier, ship multiplier, advice level, etc.
It didn't take effect for whatever reason and when I installed your mod, and clicked on the enable shortcut, it still remains the same (and the preference script file i edited earlier doesn't change from what i originally editted it from)
any help is appreciated
As always, thank you for doing creative assembly's job

Downloaded it like an hour ago and here's what I have to say.
1. With regards to the number of men garrisoned in castles I LOVE it. Now my armies spend less time waiting on possible attacks and more time doing my own attacks.
2. I LOVE the new unit sizes, 400 ashiguru and 320 samurai. Now if only ships were bigger. Makes me wish for some real big floating fortress type ships.
3. Since all the armies are getting bigger can you boost the income? Now it takes more men to attack castles and I'm going broke.

My minor stuff aside I love the mod like I loved the Darthmod for Empire Total War.

p.s.: give Darth vader a lightkatana and some more japanese type armor. Would make advertizing the mod so much cooler.

Man i agree 100% on your Shogun 2 Like/Dislike. I started from the Shogun when it came out and played all other total war games but Shogun 2 is the most epic of them all. I hope modders like yourself can make this game even more epic then it already is. Keep up the awesome work.

Darth Vader for years i have enjoyed your mods. Keep up the awesome work. Also i noticed that when i install your mod, Generals,Ninjas,Metskuke and Monk's get 3 skill point instead of 2. Is this what you wanted or its a bug ??? I personally like 3 skill points but meh i wanted to tell you :P

Mod details are found here Twcenter.net

Unfortunately moddb is very slow in reactions (It may need more than one day to confirm an uploaded file). So here I have it mostly as a database. The new version 1.4 is already uploaded.
