two games, the one with american civil war is american conquest: divided nations with the HDN multiplayer-only mod.
the one with napoleonic wars is with the HEW mostly-multiplayer mod.

the base game covers different epochs and has different gameplay.

My old game in vanilla Civ 3. I was making an AAR for my friend. Some screens from it.

>End of the colonization phase
>>
>>752855
Germany got fucked by starting in the jungle, so they were prime target for the invasion to secure the flow of spices. Soon after my galleys shipped the swordsmen, I hit medieval and switched to knights.
>>
>>752858
The war quickly wrapped up due to the double amount of cities on my side.
>>
>>752864
Attacked by the perfidious Chinese.
>>
>>752871
Buying AI into war.
>>
>>752875
I also bought the English against Chinese, and France brought in Japan. Although, AI on the other continent is pretty meaningless.
>>
>>752882
In the three-way war China folds like a paper tiger. Having allied units thrown into the grinder before you take the spoils is also very helpful.
>>

>>752887
Besides 3 cities fallen to France, and 1 to England, I got most of the Chinese territory. But in a twist of fate with the last captured city of Macao, China didn't cease to exist. Since there was no vacant land left, it meant they loaded their settler on a ship and sailed away.
>>
>>752891
A beautiful picture - a Russian submarine off the coastal city of Yokohama protected by samurai.
>>
>>752893
Downside of rapid industrialization is the massive pollution rendering terrain unusable.
>>
>>752897
In 1680 France launched a 3-pronged attack against me. A pretty bold move given their disadvantage in population and my mutual protection pact with England.

From the southern tundra they captured Kharkov, seizing the only source of silk outside my territory, and besieged Astrakhan. From mainland Rheims they took Grozny, cutting off my German and Chinese holdings from each other.
>>
>>752910
Alliances and protection pacts brought everyone in the chaos of the world war. The only meaningful matchings, though, are me + England vs France and the Zulu vs Japan, since AI is pretty inept at the sea invasions.
>>
>>752920
With the 2 free techs from theory of evolution I further cemented by scientific edge.
>>
>>752923
The absolute madman with 0 (zero) cities demanded money from me for the mutual protection.
>>
>>752924
Meanwhile in the western continent India joined the war against the Zulu which led to their rapid collapse and the strengthening of Japan.

It's always curious to see how AIs behave with no involvement of your own.
>>
>>752927
In just 3 more turns Shaka lost all of his mainland cities.
>>
>>752931
I cleaned up the French in the south and turned to their mainland. My goal was to deny France luxury resources to make unhappiness surge in their cities and make their economy bleed from the artists and spendings on entertainment.

Artillery with 2-tile radius and Cossacks with 3 movement was particularly effective in denying the French furs.
>>
>>752943
Scorched earth implemented in the north.
>>
>>752947
13 turns later, assraped Joan agrees to pay a hefty sum for peace.
>>
>>752964
Unfortunately, the same turn France attacks England who I have a defensive pact with, so I'm at war again, and instantly take Avignon and Lyons.
>>
>>752973
8 turns later and my forces steamroll the French leaving them 2 cities. They are pretty worthless at this point, certainly not worth another 1300 gold you can squeeze out in tribute by signing a brutal peace treaty.
>>
>>752994
Nothing makes you love RNG more than a city in the middle of your territory deciding to join its native civilization.
>>
>>753003
My favourite way of raising cash is fleecing AI by making them pay for ridiculously useless alliances and embargoes.
>>
>>753020
In just 6 turns I eliminated England which proved to be rather detrimental. I put embargo vs England in the peace treaty with France, but since England is no more, this clause is rendered void, thus terminating the whole agreement. Yes this is retarded, but this is how diplomacy in Civ3 works.

At this point I wanted to wrap it up, and finished the French, leaving only me, India and Japan.
>>
>>753028
Honorabru display on part of Tokugawa, but fighting destroyers with frigates is silly to say the least.
>>
>>753034
12 turns later I have almost amassed the invasion force of 20 bombers, 30 marines and 10 infantry units on 5 carriers and 5 transport ships.
>>
>>753040
Bombers soften up the enemy garrisons, marines clean up the surviving riflemen, and infantry reinforces city defenses.
>>
>>753046
Encirclement is rapidly progressing. Bombers completely cut off the enemy capital from trade network.
>>
>>753051
Even if Toku moved his capital, his sources of rubber, horses, saltpeter, coal, and dyes are cut off anyway. Aviation is incredibly powerful even before Conquests expansion which made it ridiculously OP.
>>
>>753065
The game is all but finished when I finally enter the modern age.
>>
>>753067
6 tiles on bombers isn't a particularly great range but boy it is great for AI abuse.
>>

Man Warhammers models are pretty and all, but the battles look so goofy, shitty warscape system without the gay melee dances but still managing to look like faggot shit most of the time. A shame, really.
Also OP reminded me to install American Conquest again, sadly trying to form Tercios or other formations doesnt really work out in combat.

Hey, I forgot to mention earlier, a few pro-tips and general info if you're gonna use the HDN mod.
>the mod is made for multiplayer
>it's the most advanced and polished mod the AC community has made, and makes the most use of the game's engine, and adds stuff like scenario editors that make formations with mixed uniforms possible, troops withdrawing to HQ and reforming there automatically, bullet projectiles that fly around the world, sometimes stray projectiles will hit people far from where fighting takes place, etc etc

>it is entirely focused on the american civil war. The base game of AC:DN has 3 conflicts; american civil war, Texan-Mexican war, and a single battle for the 1812 war that is buggy and crashes, so keep that in mind if you will use the mod

>the mod removes all AI, you can load all the scenarios in the mod, and play as a side, but your enemy will have no AI, you can attack their troops and they'll shoot back, rout, etc, but they will never move, since there's no AI

I use a cheat that allows me to control both sides to solve this, and to play in maps where there's no AI. Press enter (to open chat) and type "qwe" and enter, this will give you a 'godmode' ability like in the map editor, where you can open a window (pic related in top right) to place troops and objects like in editor, and switch between faction colours. This lets me switch between sides and command troops on both sides and pit them to fight eachother. Basically like playing chess against yourself.
Hope this was helpful.

There's a discord but I rarely check it, and doubt you'll find much people willing to play.

Keep in mind, most people use Gameranger to play online, but I heard the people in the discord used some kind of private server thing instead, just go there and take a look.

it's pretty straight forward.
just drop a vid, trim it, set size limit to 3, and convert.

you should also lower resolution to get a vid with acceptable bitrate, and avoid making webms that are too long.

show us what you've made.

most of those missions barely have an AI unfortunately. The mod was made with multiplayer focus, the SP missions were just complemintary by the mod maker.

You can always play with us on multiplayer, if you want. We use Gameranger and typically play ~4pm GMT to 8pm GMT on weekdays and most of the day on weekends.

It's not on Steam, thus your average zoomer is incapable of installing and playing it, along with the fact it doesn't have achievements to go for.
Whenever I face off this idiocy, I'm just confused. This is the weirdest brand loyalty out there, easily beating consolefags and their own loyalty wars.
>>
>>776405
AC:FB is actually on steam. AC:DN isn't (it's abandonware). Also those webms aren't just the base game, it's the game + multiplayer + it needs additional set up beyond this such as installing GR + downloading maps to play on. Some people just aren't arsed enough to go through all this. Even for 'good old RTS days' these mod's set up steps were enough to ward off a lot of people who'd rather fire up AOE or cossacks or whatever and hop into GR or direct matchmaking & play.

Get the last official build
Launch it
Select multiplayer
Use the in-game lobby
Have game in 30 to 60 seconds

If you are American:
Get the last official build
Get gameranger
Launch Cossacks via gameranger
Host a game
Keep your fingers crossed, maybe you will get enough people to play in an hour

when I first played this game, I was 7 or 8 or something. There was this mission where you prayed to some stones, and it summoned a dragon thingie. It scared me so much for some reason. That night I had a nightmare that included that dragon, and I never touched the game again. Good old times.

Sorry about the UI, but I think this screenshot shows pretty well how each model in M2TW has actual weight and fights on its own.

Shadowplay takes up a lot of storage too, all these video capture tools usually store uncompressed frames, that's why the files are so big unless you compress them in FFMPEG or something. You'll have to convert the files to WebM anyway, so just use whatever you want to record and then discard the original files after converting them to WebM's.

That game was basically proto TC2M.
>>
>>786473

TC2M is up there too. If only it had MP. I actually prefer it to SOW. It just played...cleaner? I dunno. SOW is a bit muddled graphically and in UI, and not as responsive. I like TC2M better and still play it.

But SMG/SMA will always be my GOATs.

well, different folks different strokes i guess. those games are extremely primitive and barely covered any battles. SoW was the definitive refining of the formula (although it was still rough around the edges, but if that formula of RTS got perfected it would be the perfect one for simulating wars of the epoch).

My favorite sound is the crackling when soldiers are sitting around/digging in.

SMG/SMA and TC2M have tons of battles/maps/scenarios available for download. Pretty much every battle, even obscure ones.

I know about TC2M's community maps and scenarios. I played with CMP 3.0 and 4.0. Still, even that didn't have MP unlike SoW (which I ironically never tried in MP).

Never knew SM games had community content. Also, doubt either of these surpass the community content HDN & HEW have for AC. HDN alone has 180+ maps, HEW has over 300.

I'd wholly recommend Darthmod if there was a new-unit-less version.
The unit variants it adds are neat, but just a basic barracks clogs up the recruit screen so badly
>>
>>787254

Yeah probably not that many. Much was lost in time from a game 20 years old. But, if you search Greatest Battles Page you'll find the games and mods available for download.

Also fun fact I tested SOW during development with Norb, in person, actually at the Gettysburg battlefield. We hiked the battlefield with the dev team then went to a hotel conference room to play the first (?) ever SOW MP battle. Fun times.

damn, that's very cool. I guess you're probably familiar with Garnier, as well? he helped Norb develop SoW IIRC and made a bunch of scenarios for it. He was the HDN mod maker in our community.
>>
>>788414

Yes definitely. I didn't know he was involved in HDN but it makes sense.

The sad thing is that these guys are getting older. I hope the younger generations step up. My life is too busy to even play games right now, much less do things with the community. Hopefully one day I can get back into it.

So I was controlling the troops but /vst/ was giving me strategic orders. I don't think amphibious landings were seriously considered because we (purple) were being pressed so hard. We started out by cutting off and encircling the big enemy push in the south. Once that pocket was reduced we pushed forward on the southern coastal road until stopped.

Then there was a debate on what to do (attack in the north, do a paratrooper landing behind enemy lines, try to cut off the enemy in the southern swamp). We ended up encircling the enemy in the southern swamp but it was difficult and took time to reduce the pocket because of the terrain.

After that, the enemy had taken such major losses that we were able to fairly easily break through their southern and northern ends of the line and move up the coastal roads, fending off counterattacks. By that point our steamroller had all the momentum and we surged forward, crushing everything.
