It appears the people at TW center have discovered how to unlock all factions by editing startpos.esf. You can find the thread there, but I am currently working on making the edits myself. I have currently added in the Mughals, Denmark, Mysore, Savoy. I will make as many factions playable as I can, but I am looking for a place to upload my changes. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Here we go! Here's a zip containing directions and the new startpos.esf. Remember, BACKUP THE FILE!!! If I forgot anyone, please post here. Also, emergent factions are not unlocked. And yes, you can play as the native Americans. Also, oddly enough, the Mughal empire has a description.

Well if you go to the Diplomacy window in game, the Mughal Empire is under Major Factions, so its possible that at first the developpers intended to make them a playable faction.

How did I miss that!

Well, when it lets me download it (busy server), i'm going to be the Native Americans! Their troops are rather impressive!

Either that or I'm rubbish heh.

It works! As soon as I can finish my Spanish campaign, I think I'll experiment with Persia or maybe Bavaria. Fog of war is a little weird with vast expanses, so make sure you send your troops out to your town and cities and such to make sure you can build and train with them.

There is a new version available from here: http://etw.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=5

I missed some factions, and this is the one that has all of them. Don't try any emergent ones, it will crash the game.

No, if you start as one of those it will crash your game.

Mind if I can help make descriptions for the minor factions that you are enabling? It would make the mod 'feel' better in my opinion if all the minor factions had descriptions and short histories.

I think that the makers of etw should have put on more of a restriction on mods during online play, while trying to figure out how to enable factions for battles, I've figured out how to change unit cost and enabling certain units such as garrisionable artillery. I am sure other people have figured this out too. Thiis would cause a mess online. I've also tested it and have been able to play with anyone while having these alters. With burningsushi as my first victim XD.

I download the mod last night and twice I've started a Long Campaign as the Thirteen Colonies and both become unplayable at the Year 1707. After I would hit the next turn button it just sits at Great Britain's Flag.

I'm going to start a Hanover Campaign and see if I get the same result.

Anyone else have this happen with the Thirteen Colonies?

its probably because britian takes control of the thirteen colonies, maybe u should try declaring war on them before that happens

I am trying to play as Mughal Empire right now. I can't see much of my territory, and I can't touch buildings to recruit a navy or upgrade farms unless I have an agent or army unit in the vicinity to "see" the building.

I tried playing as the Barbary pirates and same thing happens. By 1715 the game stalls on Sweden's turn. Btw, I believe Barbary on the most difficult settings is the most challenging nation to try to play. It's like pulling teeth, but rewarding every time you take a region since you're at war with everyone.

this probably doesn't work because of the new patch, but in any case, no, you have to do mkore.

You have to move it to C:\Program Files\steam\steamapps\common\empire total war\data\campaigns\main. Just paste the files in there, I believe.

I've edited the file, and am looking forward to playing Venice and Portugal in the future but I'm hoping some clever modder could create some Victory conditions for the unlocked nations sometime - although simple world domination sounds good anyway...

No, just replace startpos.efs with the one in the download. Do make a backup first just to be on the safe side.

So is there any way to rectify this fog of war issue? I looked over at the tw center forums and they had a very long breakdown on everything in the startpos.esf file, including a section about fog of war.
