    My game has finally made it to Steam Early Access phase and has also a brand new TW Center dedicated forum.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    It has been about 1,5 year before, when I announced my retirement from Total War modding.
    For more than 1 year I am part of the Game-Labs team as Lead Game Designer.

    Together we try to offer many innovative new things to the strategy genre with our first game... Ultimate General: Gettysburg.
    Today 12/2/2014 we begun our Steam Greenlight Campaign!

    Hoping that you still enjoy my mods and remember my work, I will need your help to get the game to Steam and open the door for its finalization.
    Please show your support with your much appreciated vote.
    I wish we will soon be able to offer you a game that you will love to play!

    DarthMod fans and friends, moderators and owners of TWCenter, my fellow co-modders and collaborators.
    I want with this message to say my huge thanks for the amazing interaction and cooperation we had all these 9 years.
    Without you I would have never achieved this mod, I would have never be able to offer you my gameplay tweaks, I would have never had this wonderful and creative hobby.
    It is now a fact that I will no longer be able to mod Total War games because I have started to make my own strategy game.
    On 1/7/2013 I announced Ultimate General: Gettysburg in DarthMod fan page.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    You can read the first info about it in Kotaku, PCGamer, Rockpapershotgun and several other game news sites (Google to find more).
    In future it will be very hard to to reply to your requests about DarthMods because it is literally impossible to handle all this.
    All my mods will be available for you to enjoy for ever and I promise that I will try to support them from time to time, if it is needed.
    You can find download links and help in the below subforums of TWCenter:

    I have written a synopsis of my modding work here:= in case you want to know more about it.
    It has been a fantastic experience not only because of all the interaction we had...
    ...but because of Creative Assembly that has allowed me and all other modders to "tweak" their Total War games.
    So a big thanks to Creative Assembly too.
    From now on I must allocate my full energy to the game I design.
    I hope you follow my new project.
    See you there!

    gl Darth on your new project..highly looking forward to it; that's stuff I usually am highly interested in anyway and the market doesn't provide much of these tactical games anymore.

    Else thanks for all your hard work, even if I only played DMS/E :> and got stuck to other mods for N/M:TW ^^ (the sick melee stuff in Shogun2 can't be compared to Stainless Steel, but I guess that's thanks to the old engine limitation!)

    I'm sorry to hear that you'll be leaving, Darth. With your departure, I think that Rome 2 will be infinitely worse off and I was very much looking forward to playing Darth Rome 2. Your work has been excellent, especially with the later games (Empire, Shogun) where moddability wasn't as high and major conversion mods are few and far between.

    I owe it to you to keep an eye on your game, and I'll definitely consider buying it when it's released. Until then, good luck in all of your endeavors sir.

    Thank a lot Nick. You gave me "years" of great fun (and have me save some money spent on Tw vanillas ) You will be missed very much here.
    I'm following your new own project with great interest... but please don't forget android users
