Welcome to Cossacks World...an archive for everything Cossacks related...an information site to keep the games alive...guests should register in order to be able to download and post in the forum...



TLDR: Link to Discord : https://discord.gg/MVbbWbm

It's been a long time coming, but I have to move along with the times, Discord is widely used amongst gamers, and it will be a nice extension to my site (CossacksWorld) to have a discord server.

It certainly is an easier way to quickly ask a question, rather than having to sign up for a forum to ask a question.

It allows for direct chat, meet other people, gamers or modders alike. I do not expect this to be a popular or active discord, but just a place to pass by from time to time and see what's new in the world of Cossacks or have a little chat about things related to the GSC games.

I'll also post information about my new modding project I'm working on. Some of you know already, but I'v been diagnosed with cancer and as such I have a lot of time on my hands during therapy, so I picked up my mod I started working on 2 years ago.

It involves adding new units (not clones) to Cossacks 3 , (Flagbearers, crossbows, swordman, archers,...). My initial intent was to add a 16th Century to the game, but these units could be used for a variety of things, it could be a mod ranging from 10th to 16th century.

The earlier the mod is put back in time, the more the need for custom building arises too, which I don't have at this point.

I'm definetely looking for feedback, thoughts, idea's on the subject, help even if someone feels like contributing.

If the mod isn't feasible to do, too much work, too many roadblocks that can't be bypassed, then at least the result will be new units, which I'll share regardless with other people who are creating mods for C3.


Do join the discord, stay, don't stay, all the same to me. I'll be there. If anyone has questions, just ask!

C3 NT Mod Animals

Version (20/01/2018)
- Improved the generation time for the 'black forest' option. Reduced the amount of trees/patterns that were being generated. Still one of the 'longest' generation times, but managed to reduce it by up to 30 seconds. I''ll try to improve more in the next version.
- Added a 'transport only' option for the 'warships' option. Usefull for river/lake maps if you do not want fishboats/warships, but only ferries.
- Added a 'union' additional start option. On choosing a nation it will be paired with one other nation.
(Austria - Hungary; Turkey - Algeria; Spain - Portugal; Venice - Piemonte; Sweden - Denmark; France - Switzerland; Ukraine - Russia; Poland - Prussia; Bavaria - Saxony.
On choosing England you will be paired with Netherlands because not everyone has the scotland dlc, but if you have and you choose Scotland you will be paired with England.
- Added an 'expensive mercenaries' option. They will cost 3 times as much as normal when this option is enabled.
- Added animals: Farm animals (cow, goose, hen, pig, sheep) & wild animals (bear, deer, fox, wild pigs, wolf). You''l find farm animals on the 'country side' maps, and wild animals in forests & plains on the various maps. These bring variety and make the maps more lively.

Major changes

1. Player can now select the size of the map in the lobby. Caution! They are still in beta, so bigger maps may require additional RAM and processing powers (to be more precise, 3 or more GB), so players with lower-end PC may experience performance issues and increased loading times. We thank Andrey Krysuk for his help with this feature.
2. Added 8th player to multiplayer and random battles. We thank Andrey Krysuk for his help with this feature.
3. Reduced an area around buildings that restricted other construction from being placed nearby. Now cities are more compact, with more space to place buildings.


1. Fixed a bug, that removed unit upgrades from the game.
2. Fixed a bug, that allowed players to build multiple diplomatic centers in one game.
3. Fixed an issue when an end game statistic screen displayed an incorrect amount of sold resources.
4. Fixed an error with the selection frame, when the speed of scrolling with keyboard and mouse were different.
