American Civil War Mod

30/12/2015: 3.6.2 Full Installer released

(Windows only, no Mac!)


ACW 3.6.2 Full Installer


100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE IF YOU'RE NOT HAPPY WITH THE MOD!


Installation:

1. Completely uninstall Empire and all mods
2. re-install Empire and Warpath, install no other mods
3. Download and extract 3.6.2 installer.
4. Run the installer and point it to your Empire folder (usually C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Empire Total War) and let it install.
That's it!

Launching:
1. Make sure Steam is running. Game will crash during launch if it's not.
2. Run ACW3 launcher.
3. Go to "Submods", unclick and reclick "Zone of Recruitment"
4. Select US or CS (if you launch US, you can't play CS campaign and the other way around).
5. Play game.

Installation of new ACW maps and the Mexican-American War units for quick battles:
1. Go to Steam\steamapps\common\Empire Total War\ACW\SubMods\ZoR folder
2. manually copy bg_maps.pack and bg_maw.pack to Steam\steamapps\common\Empire Total War\data
3. Don't use the Mexican general, he's bugged.

Notes:
1. Single battles and siege battles work fine.
2. Multiplayer battles work fine (both players need to launch the same, both as US or both as CS)
3. If you get battle crashes lower your graphics a bit and disable Steam Overlay.
4. Campaign works fine too, until the point when it can sometimes randomly crash. Why it randomly crashes nobody knows. Multiple saves might help you continue the campaign. Without Warpath the campaign in 3.6.2 will be all messed up.
5. For all additional questions, go to the forum, please. Tech questions in comments here will not be answered, sorry, since there's noone available to answer them.

PLEASE DON'T USE COMMENTS BELOW HERE FOR TECH SUPPORT QUESTIONS. THIS ISN'T THE PLACE TO ASK THEM AND THE DEVS WON'T BE ANSWERING THEM. PLEASE USE THE TECH SUPPORT FORUM INSTEAD.

Hi, I'm not sure if this question has been asked but is this still being worked on?

The mod is no longer in active development. The final version came out in 2015. Personally kind of wish a new team would pick this up and fix it up as it's not exactly complete and it's really an amazing mod. Probably unlikely though.

One thing I have noticed is that the Confederate Units (I know for sure when I play as them, but am not fully sure about the AI if you play as the Union) are larger than the Union's units, which I feel is backwards and the reverse of what it should be, especially considering that CSA units tend to be slightly better stat wise, which reflects reality. Is there anyway to change that potentially so that CSA units are slightly smaller than the Unions?

Historically CSA units were bigger than their Union counterparts. This was due to how the two sides replenished their armies. The Union would form new regiments and while leaving the old ones to get worn down over time, sometimes merging them if 2 regiments became too small to be effective. For an example of this look at the 20th Maine, the regiment started around 1,000 men but by Gettysburg was down to a few hundred. The CSA, meanwhile, would use their fresh troops to replenish existing regiments. So while the CSA would have, say, 5-6 regiments in a division the Union might have 12-15.

Oh I actually did not know that, interesting! I suppose that it somewhat makes sense then, but it is still pretty weird to have the CSA pretty much always outnumber the USA in battles.
