All the Total War Series games are modifiable to an extent, the ease, scope and manner of possible modifications varies between the games. The popularity of the modifications has contributed to the Total War games' ongoing success. This page is not the place to find modifications, please refer to each individual game portal or Category:Mods for that, here you will find links to advice on how to make your own modifications.

On TWC each game has its own Modding Workshop section and sections where mods can be posted and discussed, additionally;

  • Modding Staff are available to assist modders and help organise the mods and modding sections.
  • TWC Downloads provides a categorised hosting facility for mods and tools, files up to 100mb can be hosted directly on TWC, larger files hosted off-site can be linked to from the download pages.
  • TWC's Mod Register is available to provide basic information about a mod together with useful links and a permission statement.
  • Modders can apply for Hosted Forums by contacting lolIsuck.
