Napoleonic Total War III is the latest Napoleonic modification developed by The Lordz Modding Collective (LMC), based on Creative Assembly’s latest title Napoleon: Total War. NTW3 is an in-depth modification and the result of 4 years of development (since 2010), bringing you, as always, the most historically accurate and breathtaking multiplayer experience to date.
This mod would truly be great if it didn't crash every hour and a half, and if the soldiers didn't march at an absolute snail's pace (they literally march in slow motion and running is far from realistic). This ironically ruins the authenticity of their mod because it claims to be realistic however soldiers seem to move around the battlefield at 3km/h which is truly the killer for me. The same goes for cavalry, which are extremely underwhelming in this mod. From what I've seen, the cavalry is only used for suicide charges on artillery or through lines and players (and AI) don't really consider keeping them alive to the end of the game (from my experience). However it leads to interesting gameplay with positioning of troops and pre-planning.
It seems that because of popular youtubers and commenters, everyone has been drawn into believing that snail marching is realistic because of their naivety which I can understand.
Don't get me wrong, it's great to see that they are striving for realism and have delivered in terms of realistic units and names. Amazing to see the Royal Marines named as Bootnecks! But there are so many flaws, the crashes, oh the crashes.
But the final flaw for me is the absolute lackluster surrounding small arms. They are absolutely terrible. I have no reason why the mod team has thought that its a good idea to make it so that only 15 of 100 (or even 200) men firing can hit a target less than 20m in front of them. I know there are some historical accounts of muskets being terribly inaccurate but for fudge sakes. This is just ridiculous.
P.s the Ai sucks bollocks.
10/10 no question
this is a really realistic and over all great mod! well dome guys!
Really good mod ! xD
This mod is very well made but, unit ranges are way, waaaaay too short, like the ranges are so close you can throw your musket at the enemy and hit them, also units move at a snail's pace and ON TOP of that it takes forever to kill any units because the guns are insanely unrealistically inaccurate.
+20 for effort
-17 for battles
Awesome mod thx guys
The uniform's historical accuracy...add some pompoms, regimental flags (for Coalition) and cavalry flags...arrange the polish lancer's fanions...
Other than that, the game is awesome, the gameplay, the graphics, sounds and everything else is just superb!
The best NTW mod out there!
Very good Mod adding a wide range of new units, maps and other things like musket accuracy, better smoke and better sounds. -1 becuase of the fact that your not able to recruit units in captured provinces
One of the best mods for NTW.
