edited August 2013 in Total War: ROME II
Hello everyone. Recently when pepole fight over problems most say darthmod fill fix it. sadly it wont. While downloading darthmod for rome total war i saw a thread from darth. he said he is retiring from making mods to total war. Instead he has started his own game Ultimate general:Gettysburg. So maybe another mod will. But i though i will just make this clear for anyone hyping for darthmod to rome 2 or everyone saying it will fix it. Heres the thread. http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?607308-My-final-retirement-message

    I am so tired of reading "Darthmod will fix it! HURR DURR!" It's good that he doesn't get his hands on Rome II for a change.
    It's gotta be a Chocolate Jesus to keep me satisfied.

    Yeah. Then pepole might give the original game a chance.

    The reason was because he was not by Creative assembly modding poll or something.

    I never really understood why DathVader got all the praise for those mods. If you read the info there were always a whole bunch of people involved in the creation. in fact most of the really nice unit modding etc. was done by others.

    Nah, maybe R2 is for hard for him to script/code? Thus he retired? ;)

    Nope. Creative assembly did not invite him or something wich greatly dissepointed him. So he retired.

    He said this There will be some support for older games, if needed, as all my mods are complete now but there will be not a new DarthMod for new Total War games and of course not for the upcoming RTW2. I believe this is what CA also wanted for years, so I think they are happy now.

    I am one of the biggest fans of Total War games, I do not think someone can deny this, but as CA continued to devalue my efforts to improve their games, I would be a fool to "insist". Now this was just to inform anyone that was a fan of the darthmod project.

    It is now a fact that I will no longer be able to mod Total War games because I have started to make my own strategy game.

    Lol on his site he makes it look like HE made Total War into the game it is Oo Pretty full of himself in my eyes.

    I loved the Darthmod for the original Rome. It's alright that he decided to go make his own game, it will be worth the look.

    I never used darth mod
    I've heard he actually did nothing with his mod, he just take other people's work and put them together
    I never liked this dude anyway, and his fans are just... awful.

    The only thing darthmod "fixed" was different stats and a stupid star wars UI, do I want darthmod for R2? No thanks.

    For the aesthetics mods, sure.
    But I think all the gameplay tweaks are done by him.

    Loved his mods.

    Most great mods have multiple contributors. Darth's mods had some great features, however instead of moving towards realism (taking away mounted fire in NTW for example) he went the other direction (instead of eliminating or limiting non-existent samurai units he added more). So if I made games I would certainly hire him, but I'd have to have him on a tight leash.

    I'm not going to take a stance on modding/debate my preference here, but I do believe with what we are seeing in regards to AI improvements that CA is headed in the right direction and relying less on modders to make AI more human/make sense in its decisions.

    Bear in mind that Total war games are based on total war and that's exactly what you get from the get go, be it a senator mission, a rebel army that needs to be quashed, or your smack in the middle of contested territories. That is Total War at heart!

    Personally I think people need to wait for the product before discussing mods, wait to see what expansion packs they announce and wait to see what fixes/implementations they perform on the base game instead of getting carried away with all these ambiguous threads of what they and the community know nothing of.

    Okay... let me cut it out for you: This thread is about a modder. You don't like mods? Fine, but why on earth write it here?

    This thread is quite onsided in my opinion. I, for one, appreciated his work, as he made quite the difference in Shogun 2 as an example. Yes, Mods are created by many people, but he did a great deal too. Also, he gave credit when due.

    Beside, one does not simply "take" other peoples mods unless asked if it's alright. They properly worked together with him as the leader.

    Yeah but can you name one of the other guys involved in those mods without looking them up? i'm just saying he is getting too much credit for something he didn't do all alone. Most of the creative work was done by others .

    I can't say one way or another, i have never tried em, i'm not a mod user to be fair...

    Though i've seen alot against darth & and his mods... now being honest if i was a modder and people either hated or enjoyed my mods, that would be fine, and i wouldn't be against anyone for it.. and i doubt i'd have any backlash.. whereas Darth seems too have a fair bit, so it must of originated from the way he is, or acts.

    I guess, you tell me :p

    Darth is unite frankly the most overrated "modder" out there. Some people in this communi give him so much credit for nothing. His mod sucks and his attitude is even worse. That's why he didn't get invited into CA for development. Because he acts like an **** to his employees. Good riddance to him. He threw a pout and walked out on TW because he thought he was thbig **** and CA put him in his place.

    His mods consisted of nothing more than stat changes and unit skins, nothing of which is essential to the games. In fact, besides my obvious bias against him, I found his mods quite easy and pointless.
    Nothing against The people that like his stuff, but honestly he got what he deserved. People with his obnoxious god complex attitude should not be given praise for work that isn't even completely his. He had plenty of help and a team of people working on his stuff.

    Go vanilla, bye Darth. Hopefully all the people that are sad he left will realize he brought nothing to the series

    Darthmod Creator - Darth Vader ---> ****ty Megalomaniac, reading his posts is actually really funny or really frustrating, depeding of how you feel that day.

    Darthmod ---> Mod consisting of stats changes, a few unit additions, some scripts here and there - basic stuff. Actually, 90% of that work was not done by him, so...

    "I fixed the AI!" ---> The AI acts the same, but he thinks that stats tweaking, some non-AI related scripts and a few skins are AI tweaking. Now I feel so stupid, thinking that designing an AI is so hard and it appears to be as easy as changing two numbers!


    Basically, he wants everybody to tell him how good programmer and modder he is. He's the coding hero... I'll better reserve my opinion, because he's the God of Mods, and a so little petty and stupid modder/desginer like me cannot even DARE to tell anything about him. Ah, and don't forget that TW is TW because of him!

    I just hope that others will make some great mods out of the game. For me vanilla TW games have always been a bit disappoitning.

    He actually started many feature in the series like the 40 units armies etc long before CA did the same.

    While the majority of mods where indeed not made by him, he basically streamlined them and merged them into on "super" mod that added a large variety of features that total war fans had been asking such as editable turn duration, tech research rate, armies of over 20 units, more balanced factions, realistic effects, option to turn off tracers, making similar units such as "line" infantry of empire actually different units, more playable factions, turning forts on/off.

    Most of which CA denied where possible in the specific games they where modded into and to this day some of which they still claim are impossible on the engine (aka turn real time duration options or tracer toggle etc). Empire total war became playable thanks to his mods long before CA released patches and to this day still fixes issues CA where unable to do themselves.

    Most notably the AI. While its far from perfect if you compare the AI in darthmod to vanilla empire/napoleon/shogun2 you notice it actually takes the initiative in a lot better manner and actually attacks weak spots in your line.
