    MTW Gold has both the base game and VI expansion in it. There may be a difference in the patching of the Gold version to get it to v2.01 (depending on which Gold version), but once patched they are identical.

    There are a couple of older mods that do not support the VI expansion, so I don't think these will work on Gold. But all of the main mods should run on Gold just fine.

    The best way is to just get the Gold version. Even if you already have the base MTW game, VI by itself is probably pretty hard to find.

    The best mod is the one you like playing the most. There are some great mods out there, but I usually just play my own, which is a slightly tweaked version of the vanilla.

    It's not published, it's just a few things I changed to make the AI/gameplay better.

    Samurai Warlords is fun, if you want the STW feel without the glitches you get from playing that old lady on new equipment.

    If you already have MTW installed, you should just need to put the VI CD in and run setup if it doesn't autorun. Once VI is installed over the MTW installation, you can grab the 2.01 patch here. Once you have that installed you are good to go.

    If you want to try out a bunch of mods, the game doesn't support multiple mods in one directory tree. What most people do is to install the game, install VI, patch to 2.01, then make a copy of the entire Medieval Total War directory and call it something related to the mod. You can then install the mod onto this copy and still have a vanilla version available. If you want to run another mod, just make another copy from the vanilla install. You can make a shortcut to the modded copy of the exe and name it appropriately.

    The VI disk is the one you will need to run any MTW/VI game once you have upgraded.

    Redux has a non-VI version, and I think MedMod has a version for 1.1 as well.
