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.

I got some more French goodies for you guys. First is the Hotchkiss M1914 machine gun, the main heavy machine gun of the French army in WW1. I also added the other 2 heavy machine guns in there just for good measure.

On our home forum, TWC, a friend of the mod posted this video, which goes along perfectly with this sketchfab. They cover a lot of info on the three heavy machine guns i posted above.

Next is the new Lebel Model 1886 rifle model ive made. I added all of the levels of detail for this model as well to show you guys since, in game, its almost impossible to tell the difference since Total War's LOD system works so well. I listed the poly counts of each model as well.

And here is another video perfectly explaining the history of this rifle. This video was posted in conjuction with The Great War channel, which is one of my favorite things on the interwebz these days. Its kept me motivated theres last several months and is very informative and entertaining. If you guys get a chance check them out here: The Great War Channel

P.S. All texture work done by Aanker and don_Durandal from TWC, as well as the previous article I posted.

Hope you guys enjoyed the post :)

Please help. All the unit textures seem to be gone, and every unit is plain pink, which really ruins the mod for me. Anyone know how to fix this?

Ive hit a glitch. I have the mod installed with mod manager since I couldnt get the launcher to work. Im on dial up so just went with the manager thing.

Anyway, Its February 1919 in my game, no win, even though I have achieved the win conditions. Playing as the German Empire

Also, may I suggest for future versions, different tanks such as the Renault FT17(I think thats the name...) and the St Charmond?

Not that it matters much, I couldnt get tanks to work well for me. Whatever, the horde of Imperial German humanity shall crush the enemies! Great mod

May I ask, whats the plan for future versions? :D

I am giving this mod a 10, not just because I know it will be amazing. But because of the hard work and determination that the developers have put into this mod. 3 Years of incredible work.

Not just that. But also with the troubles on release day they have worked all day and night trying to get it working. For this they have my utter most thanks and gratitude.

Thank you. For all your hard work.

sub-par mod. too many glitches upon launch, sound hopelessly out of synch in battles, dev team vague and sometimes rude when asked about patches/fixes............
no plans for a naval re-work.....? really???

take a lesson from Darthmod team!!!!!!!!
