Released Mods (RTW)
for Rome - Total War
Mods that make extensive alterations to the vanilla game, including total conversions. For users convenience these have been categorised by installation method. The mods listed here are for the basic Rome - Total War game and do not require Barbarian Invasion or Alexander expansions, though some may have options for running under those expansions. For released mods for Barbarian Invasion see here.
Mods using Mod Folder installation method
The following mods are installed in their own separate folder within the Total War installation, so the vanilla game can still be played, and other mod folder mods installed on same installation. (It is still recommended though if you have the available disc space to make a back up copy of your Rome - Total War installation before installing any mod!)
If the method of installation is not known then mods will be included in the non mod folder category if any are incorrectly placed please edit them into correct category.
