    Questions regarding possible functions, targeting specific points and attempting to flesh out precisely what the staff can do on a practical modder's level. The first four words in each point will be boring. My apologies.
    - Does the Modding Staff have initiatives to seek out and assist upcoming mod makers?
    - Does the Modding Staff open itself to helping, be it with links and resources or direct involvement, a mod maker that seeks it out?
    - Does the Modding Staff construct guides and resources for modders ranging between beginner and advanced, or any range in between?
    - Does the Modding Staff focus on any particular game/game set (ex, modern games and medieval 2), or have a true equal interest in developing the mod sectors for each total war game?
    - Does the Modding Staff consider the direct involvement ideas above equal or greater priority to maintaining the mod lists and the download section?
    - Does the Modding Staff attempt to mirror or retrieve downloads that have died or become unreliable for otherwise notable mods?
    - Does the Modding Staff intend to participate on other platforms as well to spur on the community as a more collective whole, such as reddit and steam?
    - Does the Modding Staff participate in the Cult of Gigantus?

    I'll try to answer your questions and some of them has to do with TWC Download and the modding related forums. The others can provide more information if you want to know more, so don't hesitate to ask.

    - Does the Modding Staff construct guides and resources for modders ranging between beginner and advanced, or any range in between?
    The Modding Staff is supposed to assist modders, a beginner or a veteran, it doesn't matter and one of our duties is to provide links to tutorials, guides, resources, and tools etc. For example, how to get started.

    - Does the Modding Staff focus on any particular game/game set (ex, modern games and medieval 2), or have a true equal interest in developing the mod sectors for each total war game?
    Each staff member is assigned to a specific game e.g Axalon is assigned to the MTW, including the MTW Workshop, and the STW game forums.

    - Does the Modding Staff consider the direct involvement ideas above equal or greater priority to maintaining the mod lists and the download section?
    The Modding Staff is responsible to maintain the Mod Register (RTW) for each game (check the top forum level for every game forum), except for STW.

    - Does the Modding Staff attempt to mirror or retrieve downloads that have died or become unreliable for otherwise notable mods?
    We always make sure to replace dead links both on the forums and on TWC Download (is my assignment by the way), otherwise telling people why a link is dead or for whatever reason there is by adding an Admin Note just to inform people.

    - Does the Modding Staff intend to participate on other platforms as well to spur on the community as a more collective whole, such as reddit and steam?
    I can't give you a direct answer, but Gig is the one who can answer your question.

    Then there is a mod I have recently begun to try and help out with that I think would certainly require a few pointers, some help, some references, attention, etc that strikes me as having fair potential. Not sure if I should note it right here, or direct that via DM to Gigantus/someone in particular.

    Hi CommodusIV,

    For which game is it? Once we know that, we could probably direct you to da guy who handles that game... And then you two could take it from there...?...

    I will ask the people here.


    Does anyone have this mod and I checked the links they're dead?

    Should you have it then upload it to TWC Download if it's max 100 Mb or upload it to MediaFire then post the link in that thread.

    We are currently gathering mods that are not in the Mod registry and getting every mod registered. We are also creating a searchable platform on the wiki to make it easier for Mod users to find the mod they want.
    It is a monumental task.

    Would you like to join us? The more the merrier.

    Hi I want to upload my MARKA modified horse for Knight Orders as primary source to M2TW modders in the TWC.
    So far i add the mediafire link but when I am gone this link may expire and the modder will no longer be available.
    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!

    There are a variety of tasks at hand...1. answering questions from members, 2. updating links, 3. patrolling forums for threads and forums that might need some clean up. For example, I recently requested that the Britannia historical discussion thread be opened. For some reason when it was created there was not an option for anyone to start a thread.

    My current project is to update the links in the Terrae Expungnandae forum for the recently discovered exe files and some submods.

    There is also considerable discussion about future directions for the Modding Staff, stay tuned.

    Well, I don't suppose you're heading East anytime soon? I'm considering going there myself, via shoutout blogs for modders. One doesn't need to be of the staff to play a part, I'm thinking.
