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.

Scripted Events


Because Russia had by far the most interesting story during the war we have created a number of custom scripts that simulate various goings on including the Tsar heading to the front leaving the Tsarina in charge, the assassination of Rasputin, the February revolution etc. The culmination of this is the November revolution and the creation of Soviet Russia. We will cover more about the November Revolution in the next update which will cover Soviet Russia.

Looks great but are the rifle models reversed? I notice the 3D model and in the unit cards that the soldiers are carrying left-handed rifles.

The NTW game engine reverses the models for some reason so we have to do everything in reverse then mirror it for the unit cards, I guess we missed that detail somehow. Should be a relatively easy fix though.

Love it! Are the unit descriptions there to stay? Or do you intend to change those? Hell I'd be willing to write them for you if you wanted!

We had a guy who was working on the new text but we havent heard from him in a while. That would be awesome if you wanted to work on new text, just to let you know though there are now like over a hundred units or something crazy like that.

Happy to help! I love WW1, and writing, so it would be no issue. Let me know what you're looking for (history of units, tactical usage, etc.) And how long you want the text and I'll do it, no matter how many you need done!

This is unfair.There are generals in all nations.But there are no generals in a single Ottoman state.However,there was a lot of generals in Ottoman when it was the first world war in history.Example: Enver Pasha, Halil Pasha, Nuru Pasha, Liman Fonsanders Pasha.
Especially counting hundreds

There is one more issue, the soldier on the map is in World War 1 uniform in all nations.
A single ottoman or old uniform should correct this error. Replace it with the first world war ottoman pas uniform.

Very good job, even including the dark green uniforms of the Opolcheniye. I can hear Farewell of Slavianka playing in the background as I look at the images. Just one small question, is it planned to also include the Russian expeditionary forces and Russian Legion on the western front?

No but if you are playing as Russian you can send a force to the western front. Might be tough tho.

Probably for the Russian Legion, have France be able to recruit that one, since it was part of the Moroccan Division and wore mainly french style kit.

If you need help on any uniforms or need information on units, don't be afraid to ask. Small collection of uniforms and information used for modeling from the time period, mainly eastern front.

Have the cannonball been finally change into an artillery projectile?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

No because the animation for the cannon ball makes it roll or spin when fired so if we changed it to a ww1 style shell it would tumble through the air and look really weird.

What if you were to disable that animation? the part where it tumbles, what then?

It cant be disabled but it might be able to be changed to another animation. Its something I can look into but we have alot of other stuff that needs to be finished first.

So I looked into this and it turns out I was wrong. It is possible to simply disable the spin as it is just a field in the tables that's says spin or no spin. So we will be adding new models for bullets, artillery shells and mortar shells.

I Wish i could be there with you guys, I have some great ideas for this mod so i would like to leave you with some realistic possible additions like:

Dirt for the soldiers uniform, specially the lower part like the boots.

Gloves for some units like the Siberian rifles, reservist, long coat units in general.

Helmet cover for some soldiers in the British, French and German army to create more diversity.
