    Default Bran Mac Born's DME Mod settings

    For those who requested it.Here is a mod using some of my DMN settings for DME. New Battle AI settings, Complete overhaul of Campaign AI settings: better regional development, better expansion for factions,stronger regional defense, more technology development,lower upkeep, more naval invasions,new abilities & traits, new diplomacy,new building effects,morale and fatigue, new event triggers,stronger fort walls, larger armies and navies,naval battle tweaks + more many more tweaks etc This is a WAR MOD! For an action packed game Play on Hard Campaign/ Expert Battles. Very Hard campaign can be insane and is not for the faint at heart! BUILD 07/28/16 Note for those who want a less intense experience use the versions on post #15

    HOW TO INSTALL:
    1. Make a backup of your DME_darthmod file located in Drive C /Program files (x86)/steam/steamapps/common/Empire Total War/data. Back up the file(copy it and paste it a backup folder of your own-call it "backup".
    2. Go back into your Empire data folder and now delete the file called DME_darthmod.
    3. Download the version of the Mod you want and then unpack it. Copy the unpacked file DME_darthmod and paste it into your Empire Total War data folder.
    4.. Replace the original DME_BSM_ON.or what ever version you are using Light_ON or OFF file with new modded version Because this version has the modded projectiles file in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IMPORTANT.It is in the Empire data/DME/packs folder or the Empire data folder- Just make a back up copy and unpack this new one back in. Drive C /Program files (x86)/steam/steamapps/common/empire total war/data/DME/packs and your Empire data folder.

    ADDITIONAL UNITS MOD (AUM)
    by Swiss Halberdier Bran Version (VolleyFire)Link:http://www.mediafire.com/file/c9w90auwbmuw9ni/DME_AUM.rar/file EPIC BATTLES AWAIT!Build 06/03/18

    Note: I believe the Best BAI performance is with VOLLEY FIRE. Massive fire and very dangerous. I recommend Playing 40 unit save games for the most epic battles Again Hard Campaign/Very Hard battles REMEMBER IT IS BEST TO DELETE THE OLD FILE FIRST AND PASTE IN THE NEW FILE-SO THERE WILL NOT BE ANY MESS UPS IN OVERWRITES.

    Go to the link and down load the modded music file.Make a backup of the original music file DME_Music_ON in the Empire Data folder.Make a back up of the Sounds file in the Empire Data folder-Keep a copy of those backup files! Delete the original files now from the data folder. Unpack the new files into the Empire Data folder.In the Darth mod Launcher go to 'options' and scroll down to 'audio' and make sure that 'BG Music' is checked. Hit START and open the game as usual in Steam clicking EMPIRE etc. ALL NEW BATTLE and European Campaign music. Very epic and indeed awesome- works great.

    FOR BETTER PERFORMANCE:Go into your Empire Preferences script file located in Drive C;Users/user name/AppData/Roaming/Roaming/The Creative Assembly/Empire/scripts/preferences.empire_script.scroll down to the bottom of the script and find these two lines:multithreaded_model_enabled false; # multithreaded_model_enabled , Run the battle model on a separate thread #number_of_threads 0; # number_of_threads , Set the number of threads 0 = explicit number #Change it to read this:multithreaded_model_enabled true; # multithreaded_model_enabled , Run the battle model on a separate thread #number_of_threads 2; # number_of_threads , Set the number of threads 0 = explicit number #(If you use a quad core processor the number of thread should put is 4. Click save.)Go back to the preferences file and right click on it and go to properties and click 'read only' and then apply then ok.

    ----------------------------------------------------
    NOTE-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------It has come to my attention that the cannon explosions sounds in Darth Mod Empire all have some sort of explosion sound effects when they hit the ground or the sides of ships. Mr. English Rules has pointed to fix that restores the vanilla sound effect for those who care for such things. I did not mod any of Darth's sound effects so that is what is in his original mod and not this sub mod. Here is the link for the fix:http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showt...or-cannon-ball

    TOUGH ECONOMY/Volley Fire- SLOWER GROWTH-4 TURNS PER YEAR-TOUGHER AI ARMIES
    50% reduction in gdp bonuses and trade port income across the board for Player and AI for 4tpy games and very small bonus for AI per difficulty level settings and a bigger hit for the player per difficulty.
    Tougher AI armies. AI Units get better morale and reload and marksmanship.10-15%+
    Will be a challenge, but you will have enough money to make some armies

    Default Re: Bran Mac Born's DME Mod settings

    I have a couple of suggestions, if you are interested.
    1. Remove that awful fire by rank and enable ''can skirmish'' so that 2-3 lines fire silmuntaneously OR simply allow all ranks to fire (can skirmish) so those who want FBR can still research it and us folks that hate it can simply stick to the volley.
    2. Please make units less accurate, especially if you make the changes I mentioned above. Militia causing more than 5 losses to an elite unit from 100 meters is simply ridiculous.

    It doesn't make any sense I have done this in my darthmod.pack (but I also got rid of fire by rank) and it works. My only problem is the lethality which is just too high.
