New to the Lordz NTW3 7.2

Postby LCcmdr » Sun Oct 15, 2017 6:42 pm

Greetings!

I'm a newcomer to the NTW3 mod series for Napoleonic wars. Wow! This is a great mod. Though I struggled to get 7.2 installed, successful downloading did finally occur. Now, I've played a couple of weeks with the NTW3 SP campaigns, I'm hooked. Thus far, I've managed to do quite well as England and Spain; but fare only mediocre as France, Austria, and Prussia. The inability to recruit from newly conquered territories is a rather steep learning curve (but I like it!).

My question is simple: given my limited opportunity to join MP games (until school is out--I'm a teacher), should I upgrade to 7.5? Is 7.5 as focused on SP as on MP?

Many thanks

Sorry for the second post. Had to figure out how to delete this second one.

Apparently the 7.5 campaign is amazing and improved on all aspects, but there are a lot of people having an issue where they cannot even launch the campaign. I would wait until a patch is released before upgrading, be asdvised, though; your saved games will not be compatible on the new version.

Yes, that's what I've read here in other threads. I look forward to the patch so that I can upgrade; however, until then, I'm still learning game nuances.

Thanks for the response.

NTW3 is prioritised for MP gaming.....

Okay; is this only 7.5 or anything in the 7 range?

The main emphasis for all of the NTW3 mods has been the MP battle with its custom stats, units, maps etc. The Campaign, Historical and Regimental mods were all developed from this and customized by each mod team to meet their goals for historical accuracy and game play.

Well, it's beautifully done . . . with the only exception being corrupted files and crashes about every 50 or so turns. Very nicely done. In my SP game last night, I'm intentionally learning how to flank--as well as how to close to most effective volley ranges.

BTW, are MP crashes as frequent as campaign ones?

No, MP battles are usually very smooth if you follow Lord Cosaks suggestions: https://www.thelordz.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=138&t=16526
