    Bumping this. Recently got back into playing this game, and recently installed a Mod that makes the map HUGE. A few graphical glitches so far, and its going to be a challenge of a game.

    I will also attempt to start another AAR this weekend, using a different Mod, playing as the Papal States. I already did a run-through as them (played a several dozen turns) and really enjoyed it. Sadly, this new mod cancelled out the old mod. I think I have found a way around it (woot 2 hard drives) so we'll see. Will there be any following if I was to make an AAR using MTW 2 Kingdoms?

    Here is a screenshot, stolen from the place I got the mod from. This mod does many things, including expanding the map greatly. It basically adds the 'Kingdoms' campaign maps to the Grand Campaign. For instance, if you look at Italy, you have Rome and Naples to the South of Rome. The next city is located in Sicily. In this mod, that has been change:

    As you can see, the land-mass has been enlargened, Naples repositioned, and two new cities have been added. Also, look at the mini-map. You can see a lot more 'territories'. Look at Ireland - it went from 1 territory to 5 (I believe).

    Damn musso, I gotta get a better computer. I've only got MTW 1. Looks impressive, and I will definitely follow an AAR.

    MTW 1 was horrible. You need to at least get Rome: Total War! Your computer should be able to handle that if it can handle MTW1....

    MTW1 was not horrible. It was very impressive at the time.

    Not as much as Shogun Total War. MTW1 had its flaws (which is why they made a MTW 2) and the whole 'Board Game' style of movement was weak. Anyways, those Rome TOTAL WAR pictures make me want to pick that game up again. Legions of Roman Soldiers and Hoplites in Phalanx Formation are just so bad-ass.

    I thought the board game style was very nice.

    You all enjoying my Papal States AAR? I decided against a Turn-by-Turn type of AAR (would take too long, since not a whole lot happens each turn). I am basically sticking to major events and most (killing 2 units of Rebels isn't very exciting) battles. Haven't had a truly major battle yet (well, my next update will include the Battle for Sicily) but my Assassins have been doing exciting things. Killed a 6-star Moorish General by pure luck! Not making nearly as much money as first time around either, for some reason, but I currently control 3 Cities (Naples, Rome, Ajaccio) and 1 Castle (Florence).

    Greats eries of games. I play only on VERY HARD difficulty setting.

    Shogun should be fantastic.....

    I don't know why Sega don't bite the bullet with this series and issue a Total War War Between the States 1861-1865. Tailor made title for the huge American market for computer games. It would be a great challenge to play Lee's southerners, with all the inherent handicaps of the real contest. Imagine the satisfaction in BEATING Robert E.Lee in a battle?
