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.

We will soon be releasing a hotfix to fix many major issues with the mod.

Posted by on

While working on fixing the major issue with autoresolve our dear friend and colleague King Sama inadvertently fixed an even larger issue, the passive AI, particularly with the central powers.

Ive been playing a test campaign as Russia and have experienced an incredible boost to the campaign AI. Here is a pic of Germanys military might:

I encourage you to download this pic and take a close look, the amount of full stack armies is incredible and this doesnt even show the western front which has another 5-6 full stacks.

We will be releasing a hotfix very soon with this fix and many others.

Awesome! Maybe now I can finally play as Austria without worrying about Germany getting steam-rolled. What other fixes are included? Or are they a surprise? :o

The other fixes arent totally nailed down yet so we'll let you guys know when we have a set list.

As for playing as Austria, i have observed numerous times in my Russian campaign both Germany and Austria supporting each other very well. One would attack then the other would attack right after. So you should see Germany heavily supporting your activities while also attacking both fronts of theirs.

Could someone explain what various bugs are going to be fixed please?

The 2 main fixes, which are the heart of the hotfix, are the auto resolved balance issue (where one mg or arty unit can wipe out a whole enemy army that has no mgs or arty) and consequently the AI passiveness issue (mainly Germany but now everyone else it seems too).

The hotfix was just conceived like a day or two ago so we dont have a full finalized list yet but it will be very soon, probably tomorrow.

So say as Britain I attack and take everything from Amsterdam to Kassel to Denmark. Will the French take Strasbourg and move on to take closer German territories rather than move through my newly acquired territory to attack Schwerin? Because I'd love to work with France in a bigger way. Also will the mini mod add this update because it's awesome.

I will be waiting until the French update is out to update my mini mod.

Cavalry is in this list of problems for me too, the MG/Arty was known way back when but I had 2 units of cav attack me and i hit autoresolve to not waste time and I lost.

does the german AI attack into french and Russian territory. Because the probleme when I played wasn't the fact that the german didn't have enough stacks, in fact it had 17 stacks but their stacks never engage my troop. They just flee until I capture everything west of Berlin

I need to do a bit more playtesting but in my Russian campaign i flew a scout airplane over to the western front and saw Germany attacking with a couple full stacks as well as Italy with one full stack. In fact Italy had captured France's southern region of Provence.

I'm not sure if this is just me but I have a problem when I'm in battle where the ai will not move except for artillery unless I get my units very close to them.
