    Icon2 >>>DOWNLOAD<<< DarthMod Empire Commander 7.0+ (DM)



    ETW Mod of the Year!

    This is the best mod for Empire: Total War as reviewed by thousands of fans.
    There are two versions:
    DarthMod Empire (DM)
    is closer to vanilla and improves the Gameplay & AI.
    DarthMod Ultimate Commander (DMUC), in addition, includes
    hundreds of new units,
    dozens of graphics & sound mods
    and many selectable gameplay features.
    Witness now... Empire: Total War
    as the game it should have been... from the beginning.

    The recommended difficulty levels are as follows:
    Normal Battle / Hard Campaign (The best compromise)
    Normal Battle / Very Hard Campaign (The most challenging without headaches about the battle bonuses of AI)

    -If you play Normal Campaign difficulty you will notice that the CAI will be the most reasonable but also the most passive. Play that if you find too aggressive the above mentioned.
    -The maximum battle difficulty should be Hard. In Hard battle difficulty the land battles play maybe the best but the naval (hard coded) bonuses make the naval battles against AI somewhat uneven. Very hard difficulty level should be avoided because it gives too many bonuses to BAI and it becomes an obvious and frustrating cheat.

    Ultra Synoptic Details

    -DM and DMUC are compatible with the latest CA Patch 1.6, all DLC, including the WarPath campaign.

    • Optimized Land battle system (Musket lethal in short range but not in long range, extra balance for all units per faction, penetration and havoc in melees, powerful cavalry, more difficult AI by indirect methods and more)


    • Optimized Naval battle system (Ships turn and handle realistically, each faction has a special battle character, realistic tactical battle AI by indirect methods and more)


    • Optimized Campaign AI (More reasonable diplomacy, energetic usage of armies and fleets, unique AI character for each country and generally more challenge)

    Synoptic Differences between the versions:

    -DM is recommended for those who want a mod that is not changing radically vanilla but is improving its gameplay.

    Default Re: >>>DOWNLOAD<<< DarthMod Empire Commander v6.95 (DM)

    The new DM 6,95 is now available. Moddb will have it authorised during this day. DMUC 6,95 will follow next.

    Special new in version 6,95


    • AI ships should manoeuvre more efficiently.
    • CAI composition of armies and navies should be better.
    • CAI Lite campaign handicaps were working the opposite (!) so I made them to work as intended. You should now notice insane difficulty in Hard modes and above. Thanks to shokh for the very helpful feedback about this.

    Note: The gameplay of 6,95 maybe different/better comparing to the unofficial DMUC 7,0 that few people have, because it was a beta version not finally tested by me.

    Default Re: >>>DOWNLOAD<<< DarthMod Empire Commander 7.0 (DM)

    Now DarthMod Empire Commander has its own launcher to use.
    This version of the mod is the only capable to be used for multiplayer.


    Special new in version 7,0
    • New melee mechanics for more intense battles and better animation visuals.
    • Fatigue affects more the troops.
    • New battle animation entities: The Native American is swift, strong and quick. The melee man is heavy and stronger. These battle animation entities are enabled for many relevant troop types.
    • Morale revamped so that Artillery and Small arms fire have more impact and several other parameters create a more dynamic system.
    • Infantry walk and run speed are increased and also are balanced accordingly other parameters to create realistic movements. Cavalry walk speed is also increased so that it can manoeuvre much more easily.
    • Now the cannon trails are also not visual.
    • Lancers have more anti-cavalry bonus to make them more resistant against cavalry opponents.
    • Mass tweaked so melee penetrations are more evident especially those of Cavalry charges.
    • Some diplomacy optimisation changes.
    • Now the CAI will research technology much faster, especially army technologies such as Bayonet improvements.
    • All ships can now trade although because of the upkeep costs the more specialised will produce more profit. This was done to encourage CAI to trade more and build super fleets.
    • Income of minor factions is not so much favoured so that the bigger nations finally prevail. This should affect some countries that have difficulties in expanding such as Spain and Netherlands.
    • Troop realistic movement rates improved more.
    • Weak and cheap trade ships (Indiamen, Dhow, lugger) are removed from the campaign unit roster because the CAI insists on recruiting them and to wander around with them. Now the CAI will truly build powerful navies. (For compensation the trade income is slightly increased).
    • Mortars have smaller range but can also fire closer to them. Now they are a better close support artillery which is more vulnerable to Cannons and Howitzers. (Not yet available to this beta)
    • Trade and alliance agreements have more effect so the CAI honours them more.
    • Various CAI changes to make the CAI help more the allies and also to balance regional development vs army technology management.

      The new formations

      The new Darth Formations encourage AI battalion type attacks (reserve system) and also:
      • The AI should attack now in full unison.
      • The AI should lethally flank.
      • The AI light infantry is more dangerous.
      • The AI artillery is located in a powerful battery which unleashes devastating concentrated barrages to the human player.
      • AI general is always careful and not suicidal.
      • Cavalry attacks are better coordinated.
      • No big gaps between units (now they create one long thin line of musketry per group and per formation).
      • Attack and defend offsets are improved so that the AI properly times the assault and muskets more.
      • There are various micro-adjustments to each formation.
      • The official Indian, Native American, Ottoman formations are no longer used because they were not working correctly.
      • AI naval formations should interact better.
      • The AI siege and river battles should play better.

    No longer needed. Soon DarthMod Empire v8.0 will make this obsolete.
    Just play this Version 8.0 Platinum Beta Update 41(Gameplay upgrade for the old DMUC before the Full Release)
