Napoleon Total War - Pack File Manager questions

Postby Skaenn » Mon Sep 14, 2020 1:28 pm

Hey!

I am wanting to mod Napoleon Total War, but I have zero knowledge of this. I want to edit the units statistics and their morale. Also to make unit groups bigger, (canons having more than standard 4 canons on large). I know that in the preference script you can multiply the units, but the canons stay the same.

I can edit the tables in PFM with ease but when I save it, nothing happens. Is there something extra I need to do?

Kindest regards
Skaenn

You have to save the db.pack file with a new name, (ex. db1) and then load it with the mod manager to run your updated mod files.

Thanks for your quick reply! Is there a tutorial somewhere to do this? Because I'm not really familiar with the mod manager.

Check out the NTW mod workshop at theTWC, they have a lot of tutorials.

Hey! Thanks for your message.

So I tried making a small adjustment as test, and it works for half the part. I put in the DB unit_land_tables the british experimental howitzers on 60 men and 10 canons however, the game only reads the standard 24 men but it adds 2 canons more, so in total 6 canons for one unit. How do I fix this?

Edit: It works

Is this the correct way to do it?

-Open Patch6.pack
- Turn off CA read-only files.
- Edit the DB Units_land_Table
- Save as
- mod.pack and done.
