Yes, yes, we're on our sixth or seventh or eight iteration of this website!
This newest version is built upon MediaWiki (same thing Wikipedia uses), and is very much a work in progress, but it's hopefully a much better time all around.
If you need to access the old version of the website, it'll remain up for a couple months (taken down by April 1 2021) at 18.104.22.168 right now it's not up, we'll see if that changes in the future but it may be gone for good. :)
Welcome to the very in-progress Total War: Modding Wiki! Maintained by Vandy, filled in by anyone!
This Wiki is intended to be as good of a one-stop-shop as possible for modding the Total War series, when it comes to walkthroughs for early set-up and understanding, or tutorials to do specific tasks, or general wiki pages as an overview for various modding and game concepts. It should contain all the resources and tutorials really needed to go forward in modding - when all is said and done.
This project is born out of the members of the Modding Den Discord channel, which is focused on the Total War: Warhammer side of the franchise due to its original founding by two popular Warhammer modders - but other Total Wars are more than welcome here!
The Total War Franchise is a product of Creative Assembly, they own it and other important legal business here.

There's a lot to do to help out! Most importantly, share what knowledge you have. If you are very knowledgeable about some subject, write a few new pages about it. Make edits to existing pages. Add new categories, fill out details. This is a communal effort, and while I'll be trying to shepherd it along and keep everything relatively organized, this is very intentionally a group effort!
Note: Only verified accounts can make edits. Just register a new account with your username and log in, and you can make edits. They will currently enter approval queue to prevent spam.
To make a new page: You just have to search for a page in the search bar. The website will ask "Do you want to create a page with name X?" or something similar - click the red link, and start creating a new page from there!
- Tutorials should be named "Tutorial:Tutorial Name Here"
- Any other page can be named anything else, it doesn't matter. Please mind that only one page can exist with that name, of course, so be proper with your names.
