    Default [AWARD]Bran Mac Born for Opifex


    Awarded for exceptional modding or other TW-related contributions to the board.

    Bran Mac Born for Opifex Bored of me yet? At the least, I bring you here worthy members

    Today I'll tell you about Bran Mac Born the Maker. Bran's contributions are so extensive and won him so many awards that's is quite impossible to not to consider them exceptional by definition. He's been a pillar of the Empire/Napoleon modding community for years (he's got one or more Modding awards every year from 2013 to 2019, with a gap during 2015), and I first noticed him during the 2014 awards (which IRC that was my first year in the Modding Awards Committee) and along the years his name kept coming over and over again, due to the quality and perseverance of his works.


    In case you want a deeper insight about his works, please see the links below (for the most they are Campaign and Battle AI mods, which usually improves the vanilla games and the other mods dramatically.

    What to say more? Few have contributed as much and as long to the TWC modding community like Bran did, so I'd say let's slap him this award, because he really deserves it.

    What counts as "exceptional" modding work? I've used Bran's AI mods for Empire Total War and I've often recommended them. I'm impressed with the differences he has achieved in AI behaviour on both the campaign map and battlefield. I've made some small Empire mods, and I don't think I could do what he has done. For years, he has continued to improve his mods and to respond to requests from users - as you can see from this thread (from post 1 to post 8), he has provided many new versions in response to feedback and requests from users.

    He was there, years ago. It is just that no one notice it until Flinn did.

    I can't do anything else than to support this nomination.

    The only interaction I've had with him was well, questionable, but his exceptional modding work speaks for itself and there really is no way for me to not support this.

    I don't know, 8 modding awards and only 11 AI and overhaul mods seems too little for Opifex.
