The Elder Scrolls Hotseats


"As a solo player, you had it easy. You blitzed the AI. You turtled against the AI. You conquered your computer opponents in every conceivable fashion. When endless stacks marched against you, you directed your forces on the battlefield and personally left the ground littered with enemy corpses. You came, you played, you conquered.

Now, a new challenge awaits you.

Enter a world of chaos and intrigue, of wonder and death. Only the clever among you will survive here, in this tumultuous land where every decision could lead to glorious victory…or utter destruction. It is not enough to be a great tactician. You must learn every aspect of military strategy, from the grandest of concepts to the minutest of details. Armies must be moved wisely, agents trained and deployed, diplomacy carefully cultivated. Your economy must be a golden industry, driving your empire to impossible heights. Through it all, you test your mettle against living, breathing humans, opponents with their own dreams and ambitions. Do you hold to honor and expect your allies to do the same? Or are you a knife in the dark, plunging into the backs of those who least expect it?

The choices are yours. All you need to do is join. Join a Hotseat Campaign. Experience Total War at its most breathtaking, and embrace the intricacies which capture men’s souls…or drive them mad.

Your destiny awaits you. Do you have the courage to claim it?"

Hi, i have been playing this mod for quite a while now and it's really good. I just had one question is there a way to play custom campaign in multiplayer hotseat. I remember on older version having an option in multiplayer to hotseat custom campaign but since 1.4 it's not there.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Hey The game works almost fine its just whenever I load the campaign map wether its finishing a battle, loading a save game or starting a new campaign. It takes 3-5 minutes to load. Which is alot of time. Do you have any idea what could be causing this? I really admire the work this patch does to the game but its almost unplayable unless I want to autoresolve everything because of how long that singular loading screen is.

We have too many custom map (settlement) models, which is causing this. It happens whenever you load on the main map. However, how long the delay is depends on your PC a bit. Its about 30 secs to me for example. Try reducing your graphic setting, running the game in windowed helps too.

You can also solve it by deleting all settlement models, if you go to /data/models_strat/residences

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Thank you that helped now it takes under a minute for it to load. Now i dont know if this is a mechanic or not but for some reason when I am sieging a settlement over the course of a few turns sometimes the garrison randomly gets a significant amount of reenforcements inside of the sieged city ( Usually around double the current garrison ) This happens sometimes during the end turn screen when it reaches that faction's turn. It is just confusing because I have had several attempts at starving out settlements but then magically troops spawn in the settlement ( Also the soldiers that were already there have the damage from the siege but the freshly spawned troops dont on the turn they appear ) and sally forth.

Its the garrison script, similar as to one for example in Third Age Total War

Check your files. You may have two files within the The_Elder_Scrolls file named The_Elder_Scrolls as well. Just drag them to desktop and drag their contents into your TESTW mod folder. Should work then.

Is it just me or does the Stormcloak Civil War custom campaign not work? It's always missing the campaign description and says year one for year.

Try reinstalling, it all should be working

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Ah, thanks. It appears I figured out my problem...I tried editing the descr_strat file to add family to Titus Mede. In your older patches this worked fine I was able to put in three Mede sons with no problems. This time around I -had- to back up the file because even editing the file to it's original text causes the campaign to break.

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

Yeah, any changes done to descr_strat makes the custom campaign unplayable. Was this done on purpose?

They are completely editable. You are just making some error on your way, causing this issue. Even a smallest error in coding can cause it, especially if you are playing around with family trees
