    I chose complete overhauls, but I always appreciate it when those include some, or all, of the other categories (as the best overhaul mods do).

    Quality of life tweaks
    I don't think that option cover factions mods such as ETF or NTF, so adding "Faction mods" to this poll. Just to cover more areas of gameplay when using mods.

    I chose complete overhauls but actually it should be taken as most immersive mods. My favorite one are those who make me addicted, unable to stop playing (just repeating to myself "just one more turn" again and again), no matter their size or content actually (even if overhauls fill that most of the time)

    well I guess overhauls will win easily, though it will be interesting to see what could come second or third

    Poll will not take my vote -- something about my security token, what ever that means. Anyways I have always had a soft spot for Lusted's Lands to Conquer Gold Mod for M2TW so I am guessing that would be unit balancing if I were able to post a vote.

    well that looks strange, maybe a temporary issue? Have you tried to vote again?

    edit: just checked and I confirm you didn't vote, so please try again, thanks.

    Scratch that... I just checked I could indeed cast my vote for this poll on the main forum page in the sidebar.

    Hmm, strange I could swear I couldn't before, unless it has something to do with the remember me checkbox before logging in.


    @NorseThing: Did you ticked the "Remember me" checkbox before logging in today? If not then logout and login at the same time also tick the "Remember me" checkbox and try to vote in this thread.

    Complete overhauls - sometimes it can feel like a whole new game to get lost in. Graphical mods come a close second however, they can have influence on all mods for the given title for years to come. Interesting how no-one chose them however.

    Complete overhauls with the REAL sense of the sentence.
    For example there in NO such a mod in the last two historical TW games (Rome II and Attila).
    I doupt that we will see such mods again in newer TW games.
    There are moments (in history), in which a nation owes,
    if it wants to be considered as a great one, to be able to fight.
    Even without hope of winning. Just because it has to.

    XXI Armored Brigade. Proud that served in that unit in 1996!
    "Spartans do not ask how many (enemies are) but where they are"!

    The Greek Secret (or why they will fight again if it will be necessary or why they do not sell their history).

    Divide Et Impera for Rome II unequivocally qualifies as a complete overhaul mod but I will admit they are few and far between compared to the plethora of overhauls for Medieval 2 for example.

    In DeI you are still playing the same campaign no? I feel a true overhaul is one like Hegemonia City States, or Third Age. Stainless Steel and DeI seem more like balancing with new units, tweaks etc. Both are still excellent mods. But eh I could be completely wrong.

    A complete overall. By far the best I have encountered was Arthurian Total War. Unfortunately now lost to the ages.

    Yep, overhaul. 'S.P.Q.R' was a big early fave for RTW, then Blue Lotus and 'The Crusades.' FATW was the last big overhaul I played a lot of. Of the more traditional mods, RS and EB were great.
