    Default Welcome to the TWC University!




    The Total War Center University was made long ago in an effort to give modders and prospective modders an environment to both teach and learn the various techniques crucial to successful modding of Total War titles. Since then the University has grown to include more than just modding related classes, but it needs able and willing professors to teach all classes!


    We need both professors and students - qualified people to teach classes, as well as people willing to take them so the professor's time is not wasted. While we usually have a good number of students interested in some classes, we don't always have someone around who can teach that class.

    So in an effort to boost the uni a bit, I've compiled a list below of potential classes that can be offered here. This list goes off of both classes that have been offered and taught through to completion here before, as well as ones suggested by users that never acquired a professor.

    In addition, I will be offering a few classes myself that I will teach (though anyone willing to teach the same class with me or on their own is more than welcome to!). This will hopefully pick up activity here a bit and get more people interested in holding and attending classes here.

    While I'm looking to hopefully start one, there isn't a writing class setup yet.

    Hi there. Im fascinating with this project. The point is, i just know about it, but seems like you have been working for a long time @Hader. Anyway, I'm historian, just graduated, and I wonder what kind of historic courses are you planing to do. I could be interested to teaching something, whatever, but I'm not sure how to deal with this situation. Should we ask in the TWC University about what kind of historic courses do they want?

    Regards!

    Sorry for double post,
    (I just read my message, and I see I've not explained myself properly). What I mean with "kind of courses" is not the matter of them (I can see at top: Roman, Medieval, Mithology). What I really mean is how does the teacher deal with them. We are talking about huge matters, so..
    should we talk generally? Should we talk about something specially? It's not a practice teaching, it's one subjet which everyone could read about in Wikipedia or similar, how will teach it?

    Thats what I mean, and thats why I said to ask people, how do they want this kind of course.

    P.S. I've been so much time out of here, cant remember how to edit a post. Sorry

    Hi,

    I would be interested in signing up to a number of courses. Creative Writing, anything history based, and also some of the modding stuff, mainly on the arty side of things. I am currently in the process of learning to use some of the tools in Blender.

    I will check back here periodically, but, if you could private message me on Steam my id-Cerberus Rex, it would be greatly appreciated.
    I hope to be doing one of the TWCU courses in the near future,
    thanks,
    Joe (Cerberus Rex)

    I may do something in regards to 3d modeling or animation, but I'd like to see how Frosty and Hader get on first.
