    Default Bran Mac Born's NTW3 v9.0 Single Player Campaign AI Settings

    UPDATE: VERSION 9.0 BRAN PATCH 1 post #1

    BRAN Campaign and battle settings. More aggressive Faction behavior, expansion,
    deadlier armies & battles.

    Update to the NTW3_v9.0 (this includes the latest Campaign patch): https://www.moddb.com/mods/napoleonic-total-war-3

    UNPACK Attacked file.
    Download & Copy the Bran db.pack file to the folder shown below and overwrite the existing db.pack file:
    Install to: Steam/steamapps/common/Napoleon Total War/data/NTW3/Version90/Campaign/Packs/Europe
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    New Campaign AI and BAI settings for NTW3 v9.0 Single Player Campaign.
    (1805 European Campaign) HARD/HARD SETTINGS.


    Campaign AI -Better Ai faction Region development,Technology research,Expansion,Regional defense, construction behaviors-more aggressive WAR settings, better diplomacy-allies will help more, unit balances, unit caps. Bigger armies and navies. Larger naval ship movement ranges.

    Battle AI new formations, longer range for muskets and artillery- but less accurate,better flanking behavior, less blobbing, more fire fights, new morale settings for longer battles, new fatigue settings, new mass settings for men and cavalry-horses may pass through units-had to change as it caused major problems for the AI,. I did what I could with lousy CA AI code and path finding. It think it works ok for what it is. Battles will be very bloody affairs so you are going to have to change your tactics.

    House Rules: Best to let AI build up some forces for 10 turns before attacking, Use ultra size settings and set unit multiplier to 1.3 to 1.6 in your preferences file.

    SIRLION BATTLE TERRAIN: Larger Deployment Zones and Varied terrain. Unpack into Napoleon DATA folder.

    Enjoy the the largest overhaul of Total War Rome 2: WARS OF THE GODS-ANCIENT WARS https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfil.../?id=193736354

    Updates for the NTW3 v8.6 release include corrected uniforms for the British 1805 uniforms and overseas recruitment in Hannover and the British Expeditionary forces.

    Modifications to the fort building slots to allow the addition of the Administration building for the minor factions and many of the single building regions to improve their assets.



    Fortification were added to Gibraltar, "The Rock". You can see the North coast of Africa in the background and almost smell the Mediterranean Sea

    SUPER SLAUGHTER VERSION
    AI BUILDS MASSIVE ARMIES AND WILL BE VERY AGGRESSIVE ON THE CAMPAIGN. HARDER ECONOMY.



    Increased unit caps and unit spotting ranges. Battles play out better.

    This version by Bran Mac Born is specifically for the 1805 European campaign.

    Thank you for this submod. I will give NTW3 another shot trying it with Bran Mac Born's submod. I loved all the detailed units, the campaign, the tech tree, victory conditions, (and the list can go on for a very long time). Everything is so polished and well done in NTW3. BUT

    One of the most important things for me are the battles, and to me NTW3 have sacrificed too much game-play fun to give way to as historically accurate as you can possibly do. Which some people surely love, but i am not one of them . I like historically accurate. But there is historically accurate, and then there is NTW3. And in this case the historically accurate way of playing battles just took it too far for me

    Edit: I assume since it is not mentioned here that this submod recommends normal/normal difficulty like the main mod does?

    Understandable, many TW players are use to the fast action first person shooter games. The original NTW vanilla game was also designed to be fast paced with intense short battles. BUT this did not accurately represent the battles that took place during the Napoleonic wars. The term "couldn't hit the broad side of a barn" came from using the smooth bore muskets which were only accurate out to 50 or 60 yards. So poor marksmanship along with slower troop movements and higher unit fatigue rates are historically portrayed in the NTW3 mods. Remember these units had long marches into battle, horses were used for cavalry, artillery or supply trains.
    That's why we strive to give players alternative mods, hope you enjoy Bran's mod

    I very much am, it is perfect for me . Right now I just wish that CA had spent more time creating a much bigger map of europe, i do not want the campaign to end, i am taking my time with it so as to make it last as long as possible

    I'd copy the db file but after this I'v only four countries to choose on the campaign - Italy, Papal state, Suisse and Sweden.

    Ok, it's everything ok now. I had back to vanilla, installed new napoleonic mod and copy database again.

    I am also having the issue where the gibraltar map is just an grass field, no fort. I have built a small star fort, but I am wondering if you are not supposed to build it to get the fort map working

    Hey Bran, it's Sculpt.
    Coming back around to maybe joining the old NTW3 scene since they just released update 8.7.

    I know you're now busy on later titles these days, but do you know about the compatibility of your Campaign AI work here, and especially whether you still offer that 40 units alternative for 8.7?

    I don't have the time to edit the upkeep values myself this time.

    -S-

    Hey sculpt! I did not know they released 8.7. Downloading it now will see what needs to be done and release new version for all campaigns. Been working on Medieval Kingdoms 1212 AD sub mods too improve and fix several thing for that mod.

    Yea, I noticed. That team is lucky to have your attention.
    Yea, I haven't tried NTW3 8.7 yet. Dunno if it's better or worse than 8.6. But if I intend to join online play, it would need to be the latest, I'm sure. I'm good with LME 40 unit campaign in the meantime. But offline practice with NTW3 would be more helpful if I intend to join multipayer later on.
    Thanks!

    I also look forward to see if your mod is compatible with 8.7!
    "Therefore I am not in favour of raising any dogmatic banner. On the contrary, we must try to help the dogmatists to clarify their propositions for themselves. Thus, communism, in particular, is a dogmatic abstraction; in which connection, however, I am not thinking of some imaginary and possible communism, but actually existing communism as taught by Cabet, Dézamy, Weitling, etc. This communism is itself only a special expression of the humanistic principle, an expression which is still infected by its antithesis – the private system. Hence the abolition of private property and communism are by no means identical, and it is not accidental but inevitable that communism has seen other socialist doctrines – such as those of Fourier, Proudhon, etc. – arising to confront it because it is itself only a special, one-sided realisation of the socialist principle."
