The Great War mod is a total conversion modification for Napoleon: Total War. It creates an authentic representation of World War 1-era tactics, strategies and general warfare within the game. Including stunning new visuals that include entirely new models and textures for equipment, vehicles and more, the mod immerses you into the era with brand new gameplay unlike anything you've experienced in Total War before.

A note: the Austrians never used the Mauser Gewehr 98 as their standard rifle, but due to prioritizations we have made the Gew 98 the principal rifle of the Central Powers. We aim to diversify the weapons department in the future. :)

Don't worry about that. There's a resident picky historian on the team. They're used to the complaining by now.

They had the Steyr- Mannlicher Carbine (1895 Model) and of course a bayonet.

No. Infantry had the m1895 rifle. The carbine was only issued to cavalry units. Worst still, bayonets could NOT be fixed on the carbine version, only on the rifle and Stutzen (a shorter version issued to mountain troops).

may i ask again what happened to the trenches like this? I think this is much more bearable than the current depiction of trenches today which are just some random misplaced sandbags,woodlogs and etc. that is not doing the job too well of portraying a trench.
