Default Napoleon Total War mods?

I wanted to find out from anyone who plays Napoleon total war, which mods out there are the best? We all know that Darthmod for ETW is considered pretty much "the mod" for that game. Is there an overhaul counterpart for Napoleon Total War that makes the game more realistic and epic?

I'm considering buying it for $9.99 on Steam during this Autumn sale, but I want to know if there are any awesome must-have mods for the game before I do.

I found this one, which looks awful promising -- Napoleon: Art of War

This one also looks like it has a big following -- Napolean Total Combat

http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=338786

Thoughts on mods?

Thought of reinstalling the game and play a bit after I read this threat.


Too bad I have no sound whatsoever in game for some reason...

Both of those mods seem quite good nevertheless. And for 5 pounds for both Empire and Napoleon, you can't go wrong with picking them up

No idea about the mods, but you might be interested to know that today, in a daily deal, it's even cheaper!

Bleh I heard this from another friend just now ... of course yesterday (Thanksgiving in the US) was the ONE day this week I didn't check Steam. Oh well, $9.99 is still a good price.

Yeah, let me know on the mods.

This mod is one I played in earlier stages and I'm waiting for the next version to come out:

Infantry combat was really different in this mod and I enjoyed it quite a bit because it gave the troops from each faction different characteristics. E.g. Russian troops were better at melee and British were better at musketry. If we could get this mod or another one to work with multiplayer I'll play a few matches with you.


I'm a realism nut and want the grenadiers to not have grenades and the infantry to be unable to deploy stakes. Being a grognard is where it's at.

I haven't tried this mod yet, but I did play NTW2 for Rome Total War and it was pretty good. It's multiplayer-only:

Played a bit Total Combat. It is quite enjoyable but imo not to the point where darthmod sets the bar. Of course I haven't given it much time yet. A touch I really like though is the melee combat where all the added dust effects make it look like a real struggle. The campaign AI is quite good too except for the fact that they will keep breaking up alliance and declare war all the time, which basically makes you feel like you are playing France no matter the nation you originally choose.

If you want the realism kick then I'd suggest the Lordz mod Hockey.

It's well crafted altho I'm not sure how many play it atm.
