Witcher: Total War is (or will be) a total conversion mod of the Medieval 2 Total War. The mod will let you play as your favourite factions from both the Witcher books, games and comics (and soon to be released Netflix series), taking heavy inspiration from all mediums, featuring very recognisable characters and settlements. Right now progress is slow, but people are very welcome to send me a message requesting to join the 'team' - anyone with 3D expertise, scripting, artists, even voice actors for the units would be welcome! Also if anyone has any questions, please pop them in the comments and I'll get to answering whenever I can. :)

Developer Diary 2 from the team behind the Witcher: Total War.

Posted by on

Ceádmil one and all to the Witcher: Total War Developer Diary 2, and the first DD of 2020!

I shall come right out and say it; that we may not have a lot to show this month, but with what will be said in this DD, things will speed up. :)

So… To business!

I shall put this in big letters because… HELP WANTED! – A big part of mods like these are the models… Unit models, Strat models for both settlements and for roaming characters, even unique battle maps and although we have a modeller, pulling off all of these by oneself is a herculean task (made impossible with university), so we are putting out a big “HELP WANTED” to any and all modellers who are willing to help make this project come alive. – Please message me on Moddb, or, leading to the second part of this DD…

On the Witcher: Total War server here: discord.gg - Ye asked and ye shall receive! I have made a server for us to connect more; a place to discuss the mod, a place to update you all on progress outside of these DevDiaries, as well as have a place to have a general chit-chat. Please let me know about any criticisms or anything that should be fixed on the server and I’ll get to it when I can.

Another update is that I can give is we have had an artist agree to help develop, well, art for the mod, including portraits, building art and more. They and I plan to work closely to bring unique artwork to the project to make it that bit extra special.

Now, you didn’t think we would post a DD without screenshots, did you? Our mapper Quelmmerney has listened to your comments and has smoothed out the coastline for the V/N map, and we hope you’re happy with the results:

20200212223340 1
20200212223358 1
20200212223419 1
20200212223409 1
20200212223430 1
20200212223444 1

(This most probably isn’t the final version of the map.) And you may also notice the UI… A version I am pretty happy on, save for the icons which will be changed by next month; that’s a job for the artist I mentioned before. ;)

If any modellers wish to join the team; I really look forward to hearing from you, and I hope to see all of you on the Discord server where I will try to answer any questions you may have. And with that I must say va fáill.


Thanks for the update, coastline looks great
