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 :)

I am having very same issue. I can do battles(sort of) but as soon as I go to Singleplayer Campaigns, it crashes. I did have Darthmod on but removed (or set back to vanilla) so I am not sure if that had any impact. I had patched to 5.14 and when I had fired it up, it said 5.20 was available, so I allowed it to patch. Wondering if I should just go to original mod no patches?

Hello, I have a problem, a kind of bug that, for example , are not spies spy planes are normal and some technologies Descripsion not appear. I wonder what I did wrong, because Napoleon Total War purchase ( with no DLC do not know if that will be the problem) and install The great war after version 5.1 and 5.1.4 . Also install the obsolete versions before 5.1.4 and followed with the same problems , you uninstall everything and I returned to install the 5.1.4 and continues with problems, not if I will have to compar e instalr the DLC couple that works. Thank you and I hope your answer


Hola, tengo un problema, una especie de bug que, por ejemplo, los espias no son aviones son espias normales y la descripsion de algunas tecnologias no aparece. Me gustaria saber que hice mal, porque compre el napoleon total war ( sin ningun DLC no se si ese sera el problema) e instale The great war 5.1 y despues la version 5.1.4. Tambien instale las versiones obsoletas antes del la 5.1.4 y seguia con los mismos problemas, desintale TODO y lo volví a instalar con la 5.1.4 y sigue con los problemas, no se si tendre que compar e instalr los DLC par que funcione. Gracias y espero su respuesta

Is there any way to lower the number of soldiers per squad back to the default napoleon numbers? My computer isn't super advanced so i would like it more if it has LESS soldiers on screen.

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!!!!!!!!
