    Has anybody considered a Birthright campaign mod for Medieval II Total War?

    Has anyone ever thought of making a Birthright mod for Medieval II Total War? Someone expressed interest in the M2TW forums a while back but I don't think the project ever took off...

    Just a thought...

    As both a big fan of the Total War series and of Birthright, i'd find this to be really cool and natural combination. However, i wouldn't hold your breath waiting for it. It's got to be a small niche of people who like both, and at least a few of them would need to be modders.

    Possible, but unlikely.

    Of course, the same could be said of any mod ever designed...

    I have considered something similar for Medieval: Total War, but then I realised that the point would be moot, since I would only be making a Birthright-like Medieval: Total War - since the engine allows for little changes to be done (not as many as would be needed, I think).

    Yes,we have already talk about that.However is a bad idea (we can even make a Birthright mod of aok with genied2.1...lol it is very easy).
    But I think that we need a new game...but Sierra has ruined Birthright reputation (too few funds= low AI,bad graphic for adventure mode,only Anuire and not Cerilia,very little diffusion) for the useless Betrayal Antara that is even not compatible (it works....but too fast unplayble) with the new Windows version while the great Gorgon's Alliance works without problems!

    Oh, you can get quite a lot out of the -2 engine. Take a look at what was done with the Rome Total War engine (of which Medieval 2 is an enhancement) for Rome Total Realism (www.rometotalrealism.org).

    The question is whether there is enough support for it. It's a lot of work for just one modder to do.

    The MTW community has all sorts of scripts and custom contents to make almost anything possible... the only thing that probably needs to be done would be to add effects for spells wherein the number of spells memorized or the charges for a wand would be placed in the ammo variable

    To many times I got hooked up on the idea of making Birthirght: Total War, and/or Europa Universalis: Birthright, and nothing happened, and was disappointed every time. Anyway I am always for it, and prolly could help with CG (2d & 3d), but until something serious come up, I'll remain skeptical...

    I don't suppose anyone is around that could do this now is there?

    I like playing Total War, but a Birthright mod for this game would be amazing.
