Postby Lord Cosak » Fri Oct 14, 2016 12:00 am

Image


  1. Main features
    • Historical battles: old ones updated, 2 new
    • Regimental Mod for 1815
    • SP campaign
    • Desktop launcher (for Windows)
    • 1240 units (230 new)
    • 183 historical generals (24 new)
    • 37 factions (4 new)
    • 77 scenarios (22 new), many old ones updated or rebalanced
    • Minor gameplay changes (see details below)
    • Several new icon full sets (for new factions, France 1806, Ottomans)

    ImageImageImageImage
  2. New factions
    • France 1799 (19): France's army in the Egypt and Italian campaigns, not really experienced but very maneuvrable
    • Holy Roman Empire (19): precursor of Austria in the pre-1805 battles, with a mix of slow large units and fast small ones
    • Piemonte-Sardegna 1796 (17): France's major opponent with the HRE in the Italian campaign
    • United States (14): War of 1812's roster
  3. Historical battles
    • New battle of La Rothière (with or without snow, enabled by selecting the box above the start button)
    • New battle of Elchingen (two scenarios, the first with historical deployment and the second with an advanced morning deployment for fast engagement)
    • New victory conditions for Rivoli
    • New scenario for Quatre-Bras early afternoon scenario (enabled by selecting the box above the start button)
  4. Infantry
    • Slightly more units able to form squares
    • Skirmishers move in looser formations
    • Attempt to reduce fire-in-melee occurences
  5. Cavalry
    • Medium and heavies slightly more expensive
    • Charges against infantry are more penetrating, especially for heavy cavalry, less for medium, a little for lights
    • Standard generals cost 60
    • Note: killing or using the general is no longer prohibited; since v6 the general unit is as vulnerable as any other unit
  6. Scenarios
    • A lot of rebalancing following feedbacks from players
    • Most of new scenarios are using the new factions
  7. Download & installation
    • File (1.8 Gb): http://www.mediafire.com/file/1ved8ux6vlbdf8t/NTW3-7.0-setup.exe
    • Launch the NTW3-7.0-setup.exe file, choose your language.
    • Select your NTW folder, by default it is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Napoleon Total War" (warning: don't select the "data" folder like in v6)
    • Wait until all files are extracted.
    • Use the NTW3 launcher to start
  8. Army selection
    • Because so many factions are now available, the weakest nations can be off screen if your resolution is not high enough. To select them you can use the pre-saved army setups:Image

It's simple: if you follow the procedure written above, it'll work.

So uninstalling v6 is not mandatory, although you'll save space on your disk.

Btw I forgot to mention a critically important change in this version: the loading progress bar is now red.

Lord Cossack, I couldn't get to run it as I had no NTW folder.
I've installed my Napoleon in E drive.
E:\1- Tayyab\ SteamLibrary\ steamapps\ common\ Napoleon Total War
Now where in Napoleon Total war would I find NTW? I have now deleted everything related to NTW3 so can you please help me? I'll be glad for the reply gentlemen.

Good job lord Cosak
But what's up with the regimental verison? I thought it would be the same as normal version except for larger unit sizes, instead it is a bunch of British, french & prussian Corps with extremely cheap costs per unit and very strange stats, like 8 accuracy and 250 reload?!?!?!?!?!

it installs a new NTW folder in your steam folder, move the files within that folder and it should work

Retyn you seem to be helping around, please help me in these dark times. The installer creates a new "Napoleon Total War" folder in my Steam folder. I've never had problems with installations before, but for the life of me, I can't get this to work!

I believe that in the Regimental Mod stats and costs are irrelevant,the game speed but more importantly the game mechanics have had major alterations.....some regiments start with poor moral(orange bar),all units only walk,art range if not all range is reduced alot,no units can square and the Generals do not move....I think this was created to give or attempt to give a slower more realistic Regimental level game.....though I've only have a few practice 1v1's it seems interesting

It will certainly help those players who want a more relaxed game where there is plenty of time to manage their units etc Gunner may like this version though imo I would like to see the classic NTW3 incorporate the HB mechanics(speed etc) on all classic maps with classic free build OOB's?

The regimental version is devised by Lord Fullin with different game mechanics so maybe he will comment more about this but Wym seems to have a good explanation above.

Ah Wym, it was 5 years ago i think ? Gunner asked for this if i remember correct ^^
And now we have;

Historical Battles,
Classic Scenarios,
RegMod
Classic MP ...

I dont think HB mechanics would be real on classic maps after all ..? tho we must not be too precise, if someone 3 years ago told me there would be ntw3 classic mp with 'partical squares' and a sub mod with no squares i would not believe. ^^

Long time lurker, first time poster. So first I'd like to extend my thanks to all the modders involved. You're doing gods work. Secondly I humbly request a seeder or two on the torrent as my internet is neither fast or reliable enough to get 2 gigs downloaded through the browser.

Again, thanks for all the work guys, really enjoy the mod.

Cheers,

Smokey

First of all I want to thank the developers of this mod for their astonishing work. However, I wanted to ask some questions about the newest version. All Questions are concerning the Singleplayer Mode.
1. Normal Line Infantry is only firing with their first row, while Light Infantry uses multiple ones. Is this normal, as in Version 6 this wasn't the case.
2. Every Infantry unit, apart from Skirmishers, has the ability to form square. Was the "Square Overhaul" only implemented for Multiplayer?
3. A Question of which I am curious about since multiple Versions, is why there are far more units in Multiplayer than Singleplayer. For example, France has a ton of unique Line Infantry units, which aren't there in Singleplayer.

Again Congratulations on this fantastic mod and thanks in Advance for responses.

You have selected the napoleon total war directory when installing, instead you have to select the common directory because the installer add automatically NAPOLEON TOTAL WAR directory to the name.
Please disinstall V7 and reinstall V7

Lord Tayyab be sure you install the mod in the main total war folder of your steam on the correct hdd. Once you got the correct folder where Napoleon is located you install it there and the mod installs itself inside the Napoleaon Total war folder..

Be sure you do not have other mods in there that might mess up your install. Also create a new thread just in case every 1 is ignoring your post because every one is excited about the new expansion ! :biggrin:
