Dear TIW-Fellows,

interested in working on your favourite mod? That is your chance! We have currently a bunch of vacancies, so pluck up your courage and shot us a pm!

What we are looking for:
- Scripter
- Coder
- 3D artist
- texter (preferably native English speaker)

In case you haven't got a clue about modding/2D arts, no problem at all, we'd be happy to lend you a hand, so don't be shy!

- We expect you to work on your own and finishing a task in certain amount of time
- You’ll mostly work in the campaing_script file and implement surprises, decisive events or scripts to improve gameplay for the player

- Lurking between the Vices & Virtues of TIW, adjusting triggers and entries
- Adding new lurid titles for the campaign or famous persons of the renaissance

3D artist:
- Well, due our humble 3D skills the faction rosters are not that diverse. So if you are able to deal with vertexes and faces, hell, what you are waiting for?

- If you are capable of writing accurate and vivid descriptions or thrilling event texts, you fit perfectly for this job.

All the best,
TIW-Modding Team


I thought this was a campaign but it's only a custom battle :(

I fear we won't change anything about the taxes and income. Except we have to because of our new unit pricing system.
If you have problems to getting ahead, please refer to our Tips & Tricks section on TWC:
