A Petition to Creative Assembly

by | 3/8/2010 13:02 PM

Since the early days of Total War, modification has been a major part of the the series' community, and in many ways a major reason for the very popularity of the games. It is no news, to anyone, however, that the more recent releases have proved far more difficult to mod, and with Creative Assembly announcing they will release no official modding tools for Napoleon: Total War, one fan has made the decision to bring this issue to attention. Marcus Cornelius Marcellus , TWC member and former leader of the popular mod, Rome Total Realism has released a petition to CA to not forget those "revolutionaries" who love the freedom given them by the ability to mod, as the series moves forward. An honest plea from some of the truest fans that the Total War games have.

Read the thread, as posted on our forums by BritishWarlord, by following this link, and add your support to the petition at the Facebook group. May the Red Mod Army march on...
