Conquest of Elysium 3 is an old school fantasy strategy game. You explore your surroundings conquer locations that provides the resources you need. Resources needed vary much depending on what character you are, e.g. the high priestess need places where she can gather human sacrifices, the baron needs places where tax can be collected and where iron can be mined. These resources can then be used for magic rituals and troop recruitments. The main differentiator for this game is the amount of features and special abilities that can be used. The game can be played on Windows, Linux (x86 and raspberry pi) and Mac OSX (intel and powerpc).

The manual says nothing about mods. How do you use them?

Never mind; I figured it out. You need to put the mod files into the "mods" subfolder of Conquest of Elysium's user data folder. For me, that is C:\Users\TC\AppData\Roaming\coe3\mods.

There's a separate modding document with the game, you can find that in the same place as the manual.

Can you clarify, please?

I have a "Manual" and a "Map Editor Guide". Is the map editor guide the "separate modding document\" you are referring to, or are you thinking of something else?

Johan has forgotten to include the modding document in the patches!

Look here:

The download links for the documents are about halfway down the page. In addition to the main manual and the Map Editor Guide, there is a separate Modding Manual.

Got it. Thanks.

yer, I'm looking at that manual and its not clearly saying where to put stuff, also will it be different for the Steam version?

It would take quite a bit to answer that since it is apparently different for different uses of Linux, Mac, or different versions of Windows. :(
And the security-minded "official answer" for latest versions of Windows is different than the recommended answer that many people in the forum give for making it easier.
