To use this template copy the following code on to the top of a mod article on the wiki, and fill in the sections according to the further instructions below. If using a campaign map image please do not exceed 250 px width. Entries marked* are optional - if not relevant to the mod delete everything after the = sign. If in doubt view the two examples at the bottom of the page in edit mode.





Code:
 
 {{Mod Information Table
 |Platform=PLATFORM HERE
 |Mod Type=MOD TYPE HERE
 |Parent=(Parent HERE)*
 |Era=(ERA HERE)*
 |Mod Leader=[<LINK TO PROFILE HERE> <MOD LEADER USERNAME HERE>]
 |Release Status=VERSION DETAILS HERE
 |Mod Foldered=(Yes/No -(RTW and M2TW only))*
 |Forum=[<FORUM LINK HERE> Here]
 |Campaign Map=[[Image:<IMAGE FILE HERE>]]*
}}

Further Instructions

It is recommended that you use the overall game as platform here - not the expansion name, e.g. Rome: Total War instead of Barbarian Invasion or Alexander. Instead please detail any specific requirements e.g. DLC or patch or expansion required in the main information section of the page.

Please use the same format as above, so that the templates are tidy and standardised. If the mod is for a platform not included in the above list, write it in as normal, just use the same format when doing so. If in doubt ask the Wiki Director and they will tell you exactly what to use.

  • Mod Type: This is basically what kind of mod the one you are writing about is. Some common types are the following:
    • Total Conversion
    • Overhaul
    • Graphics Pack
    • Unit Pack
    • Gameplay Upgrade
    • Sub-Mod

Of course this list is not exhaustive-feel free to use whatever terms suits the individual mod the best.

  • Parent: If the mod is a Sub-mod include the name of the parent mod and link to it's forum here.
  • Era: This is when and where the mod is set, e.g. "Europe 1066-1453" or "Feudal Japan." What you write does not matter as long as it is clear. You can include campaign dates if they are present.
  • Mod Leader: This is where you put the name of the mod leader (or multiple names if there is officially more than one of them). This must link to their user profile on TWC. Simply put the URL into the first half of the table section above, and then write the username in the second half. Remember to remove the </> symbols.
  • Release Status:This is where the version number goes (e.g. v1.53). If it's not a full release, then you have either have beta/pre-beta/WIP or whatever else is suitable.
  • Mod Foldered:Use for RTW and M2TW mods only - state Yes or No - if no, state the extent to which vanilla is overwritten.
  • Forum:This is where the link to the mod forum goes. Simply replace <FORUM LINK HERE> with the relevant URL. Do not delete the "Here" part-that is what this section needs to show up on the page as.
  • Campaign Map:This is where a small image of the campaign map goes. Simply upload the image to the wiki itself, and then write in it's name and the file extension instead of <IMAGE FILE HERE>. Make sure that the image is not so big that it stretches the table width - 250px max please.
