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.

Hi guys, I just tried this for the first time.

I'm playing a Rise of the Samurai campaign, and this mod more than doubles my unit upkeep costs. I went from over 1000 profit to over 5000 loss!

I think everything else is working fine, but this is a major problem lol.

Do I need to start a new campaign for Darthmod to work? Does it break game-saves?

Do not continue old vanilla campaigns with this mod. The economic system is different. Start new campaign and you will have no problem.

The battles seem to become a challenge, nice work.. but is this mod supposed to make the game hardcore? darth mod have always been a mark of complete overhaul and enhancement of total war games, and not a sign of hardcore, but here in Shogun II the game became hardcore as hell, as for me, though I can't say I am a complete fool in strategy, but since RTW I have been doing quite well and with darth mod too..
i mean can't get all the supposed fun from playing the game

I inform that the mod will be updated until the end of this week according to the feedback you gave and the progress of this beta Twcenter.net
All those who report sound issues should install the soundfix as advised and check their installations for other conflicting mods. I cannot confirm the sound issues you report in all the occasions one by one. So it has to be your end.
