  1. Re: Question regarding unlocking new lords for Tomb Kings

    Exactly which mods are used is the problem much more so than the number. For all we know they each deal with separate issues so that you don't get a game crash at loading screen, which is usually...
  2. Re: Question regarding unlocking new lords for Tomb Kings

    I usually start by toggling all off just to see if it works- if it does then you already know it's one of your mods being a culprit and thus factor out it being a game bug.
    Then I just go from there...
  3. Re: Question regarding unlocking new lords for Tomb Kings

    Would be the mods. WHich ones you using? I use like a dozen and I'e not had such a problem come up, they do not affect things like characters or anything like that.
  4. Re: Is the Chaos Invasion mechanic lazy game developing?

    I'd say simplistic rather than lazy.

    I've noticed that Total War game design is largely trying to make a game that operates at a particular level of function. To many of us, that function is...

  8. Re: How Are They Going to Handle Campaign Map Merging?

    Combined Map is basically a new, separate map that has nothing to do with either campaign maps. It is a new map that has regions from both maps, though in a simpler form.

  11. Re: Anyone else hating fantasy/warhammer Total War games?

    To be honest I'm not as interested in the details of the other factions since they do not interest me. As I said, the way Dwarfs do their magic stuff is far more like generals' buffs in previous TW...

  14. Re: Can you ambush rebel armies on the turn they spawn?

    Never thought of it; first thing I'd try is to modify the ambush chance to like 100, then having several of your armies raiding or in ambush stance in a choice settlement.
