Weaker Towers


While I've been enjoying my vanilla Warhammer experience so far, there has been one aspect that has bugged me: Sieges. Specifically the towers. One of my biggest complaints for the past few Total War games have been how strong towers have been, and this has only been amplified in Warhammer by making the siege maps have only a single approach and giving the towers incredible range. This mod reduces the range by a large margin and decreases the damage of each tower tier by 50%-75%.

Image is of the range of the towers now.

Do note it has not yet been tested for balance, and I'll try to find a much better mix of range and damage as more people use the mod, and as I play the game more. But for now, this is the first release. Enjoy!

After looking at Radious Mod to see if I could make it compatible, I am not due to how his mod is structured, as our mods both include the same lines within the db/projectile_tables/data__core.

However, if you would like to make your version of Radious compatible, you can. You just need the tool "Pack File Manager" (Found here: With that tool, you would hit "File" at the top and then "Open", and navigate to your Total War WARHAMMER/Data folder, and open the "Radious_Total_war_mod.pack" file.

Once that is open, there will be a little plus on the left hand side of the mod's name and you'll click on it. it'll show a "db", click on the plus for that. Now locate "projectile_tables", click it's little plus and then click on the "data__core_rad". On the right hand side of PFM the table will open.

Scroll down to line 72, which is the first tower. Click on the 72 and hit "delete", and do the same for all the "wh_tower" lines. Then hit "File" and "Save As", choose a name for your edited version and save it. That mod file will now be in a folder of that name in Steam/SteamApps/Common/Total War WARHAMMER. Move your mod file to Total War WARHAMMER/Data, and activate it with the launcher (and make sure to deactivate the original Radious Mod)!

With that, they should be compatible.

Updated to be compatible with new patch

Do towers still kill enemies and damage siege equipment? at least at higher tier towers? i have a mod just like this installed for attila but that made them 100% useless in every way, including if they just sat under the damn thing untill they died.

chubbyninja89 (T.I.B), you were given a FREE mod, made by another PLAYER, not a dev, and you're bitching? Gods what a snowflake....

Holy crap, this guy does not do this to get paid, he does it for free and decides to post it. Dude, just keep modding how you wanna mod man, you owe nothing as you did not magically gain a responsibilty to cater to the whims of people too lazy to even know they can make this modification themselves. Nice mod, glad you updated it to the newest game.

lmao dude, i do this for fun (and free), i could care less how many subscribers I have. that's not why I make mods, I make them because I enjoy them. and if I dont enjoy making a mod, im not going to be making it.

also this is the easiest mod in the world to make, so in the time you've spent bitching you could also have made it yourself. It's just the damage and range columns in the projectiles table. easy peasy lemon squeezy.

You're missing the damn point pal.

This was one of the only, if not the only mod that reduced the damn range of the towers. And when you're the one who only makes something like that, you have the responsibility to maintain it. Especially if you have 5,500 subscribers. If you don't maintain your stuff, then all those subscribers will leave you without a second thought.

I'm not even going to continue talking to you about this, since all you're going to do is try to make excuses.

Firstly: you're not entitled to my work. I choose to make mods in my free time, it's a hobby - one that I don't always have the time or willingness to do because of other obligations.

Secondly, this song and dance has occured before. The mod is currently up to date, I tested it, and none of the other 5,500 subscribers have mentioned anything wrong so I'm really doubting that it's only working for me for some reason.

I'm just not even going to doing this crap.

The fact that this mod was one of the only mods to actually lessened the anooying range of the towers, and then suddenly it just stops working. And while my computer was having some issues, they wouldn't have had any effect on this mod.

When the mod just stops working, and only the creator of the mod says it's still working, that only makes it look like they're lying.
