The Great War mod is a total conversion modification for Napoleon: Total War. It aims to create an authentic representation of World War I-era tactics, strategies and general warfare within the game. Watch as waves of battalions advance under the cover of massed artillery barrages and deadly poison gas, or stay play it safe hidden behind their defenses. Machineguns will brutally mow down uncareful attackers and defenses are manned by thousands of troops, armed with rapid breech-loaded rifles. SMG Infantry, flamethrowers, snipers and elite Stormtroopers are a few among the many units that attempt to break the stalemate, while the sheer industrial output of all combatting nations - and the density of forces along most fronts - ensure that advances are measured in metres, not in the grand distances of earlier days. Commanders must learn to control massive battles, where audacity and wit must overcome seemingly impossible odds.
Dreadnoughts rule the waves in the grand collisions between the world's mightiest navies, while cruisers and destroyers launch raids on ports and merchant shipping, gradually forcing nations into starvation and resource shortages. Battles are carried out at long ranges, with the biggest metal titans bolstering an impressive and unprecedented firepower.
The artillery barrages, huge explosions, clouds of dense poisonous gas and the sheer scale of battles help create a feeling of awe and truly exposes the capabilities and wonders of the Warscape engine. Watch battalions evaporate under withering shelling, melt away in poison gas or be turned into piles of corpses in front of enemy positions in the enthralling 3D land battles.
Rule at the head of any of the many countries that watched Europe become engulfed in war, lead your nation however you want in a free sandbox campaign, or follow the path of history in our new heavily scripted campaign.
The Greatest war the world has ever seen is about to begin, it's time to take your place in it.

Hey man am loving this mod atm, it did however crash quite often, but I did manage to get a fix for it, but one issue is still here. The game doesn't seem to save at all and I quite enjoy the campaign especially since I lowered everything so it cost nothing and was just having giant battles everyturn. Is there any way of fixing this?

You can use napoeleon egypt campaign map as a battle of palestina sinai maybe? it will be awesome!
Ottoman empire vs British emprie (Maybe german/austro hungarian/french/italian/arab units?)
You can also maybe use the italian map from the napoleon campaign?
It's a good idea and i will be super sad to hear no about it.

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.
