The Great War Mod 6.2

RE-UPLOADED


This is a reuploaded version of the 6.2 Complete Edition that addresses some known and some possible causes of crashing during battles. This update also includes adjustments to gameplay and visuals as well as several bug fixes and a new feature.

The reason this is a reupload instead of another patch is because we want to get v6 in the best playable state and all in one download so that we can shift our focus to the next major update, v7. We arent giving out any details about v7 yet but we can say that many things we have wanted to do in the mod but were previously impossible are now possible and will be the focus of v7.

Installation Guide

Step 1) Download the 6.2 here

Step 3) Drag and drop the user.script file from the 6.2 folder into the Napoleon script folder located in the AppData directory

Step 4) Launch Napoleon Total War from Steam


New Feature


We have added a new feature called National Resistance. This adds an additional permanent unrest to captured enemy regions. The main purpose of this feature is to slow down steamrolling in the early game, particularly on the western and Italian fronts. There are multiple ways to manage this unrest however. Recruiting militia will become far more important due to the fact that they are the only unit with a repression bonus, also building happiness buildings and researching civil techs that increase happiness will be necessary.


National Resistance is alliance based, meaning if a Central Powers faction captures an Entente regions, such as Belgium, they will have the new National Resistance unrest applied. However if an Entente faction captures the same region there will be no added National Resistance.

Bug Fixes


1) Added missing entries in the user script files causing some mod files not to load when launching the mod

2) Re-Added missing export historical character lua file to the mod which caused the historical characters not spawn when launching the mod

3) British units and French researchers speaking Spanish has finally been fixed!

4) Fixed machine gun sounds being vanilla.

5) Fixed battle crash when the ammo cassion for gas howitzers is destroyed.

6) Increased income for town building chain.

7) Added mini buildings around all towns except farms and stables

8) Overhauled research times for techs, decreased some and increased others. Also rearranged the order of some early techs unlocking.

9) Completely overhauled all destruction models and textures.

10) Added new LODs to some artillery and tank units.

Improved Ironman Difficulty


The Ironman Difficulty has been overhauled and should offer a decent challenge in the campaign. This setting give massive bonuses to the AI resulting in larger armies and more aggressive behavior. It also gives the player more challenges including more settlement unrest to manager and less income per turn etc. If you the mod to easy and are finishing the entire war in 1916 then give Ironman difficulty a try.

I was going to try this out, but seems there is a lot of crashes? I was also wondering if you are going to make a World War 2 mod?
