Total War: Warhammer 3 Boosts Mod Limit to a Whopping 65,534
- Apr 14, 2023
The latest expansion for Total War: Warhammer 3, Forge of the Chaos Dwarfs, has arrived and brings not only an array of impressive hats but also takes the game to version 3.0 with significant updates. One notable change is the substantial increase in the number of mods that can be run simultaneously, opening up new possibilities for avid players seeking unique experiences.
Forge of the Chaos Dwarfs adds exciting content to the already extensive fantasy world, including new factions and units. However, it's in the general updates section where Creative Assembly has made some groundbreaking changes. The patch notes mention introducing "a new pack file limit", which significantly increases mod capacity – a development that modders and gamers alike will appreciate.
This update was highlighted by William Håkestad, a designer at Creative Assembly working on Total War: Warhammer 3 DLC. In a message shared with the Total War modding Discord community, he revealed that this new limit would allow users to install up to 65,534 mods concurrently without causing any cross-mod issues.
For context, previous versions of Total War games have had much lower limits on mod capacity – sometimes as low as several hundred maximum mods allowed per installation. This massive leap forward means many more opportunities for customization and potential collaboration between modders who create innovative features or campaigns within their favorite games.
In conclusion, while Forge of the Chaos Dwarfs' primary draw may be its introduction of stylish headwear and intriguing new factions into Total War: Warhammer 3's universe, it’s this monumental increase in simultaneous mod support that truly sets it apart from previous expansions. With over sixty-five thousand possible active mods now available to players eager for fresh experiences in their gaming sessions – provided there are no compatibility issues – Creative Assembly has raised expectations about what future iterations may hold when it comes to mod support.
