I have been working hard for 11 months to create and release a large expansion for the Improvement Patch. This update included new units, ability to train the monster truck and washington bust, wwi units, fire ships for all civs, improved cannons, day-to-night maps (single player only), more upgrades to walls, advanced monitors, modern day destroyers, improved frigates, advanced wagons, banks for every civ, ect. Yesterday I turned on my computer to make sure there were no bugs for release. When I signed into my profile I found it was using the default temp profile. I figured it was nothing. I restarted my computer and still it was using the temp. Turns out my profile became corrupt. I lost everything. The improvement patch files, my star wars battlefront 2 mods (I was able to only release one of the mods) and other important files.

So what now? Now I start to rebuild. Hopefully I have a backup of version 4 somewhere. I wanted to post this update so everyone knows whats going on, and why there hasn't been an update in almost a whole year. Though it might take some time, version 4 will be released.

As always,

♥ TheCannibalPizza

Oh, never mind I just tried it with the British and it works. And I checked your website. Can't wait for the update then. Good luck on the mod =) its a great mod! The only suggestion that I have is maybe to lower the Priests health some other than that I find the mod to be perfect. Good luck on further work, and btw I love your name lol.

I will be lowering the priest's health in a future update

Well hopefully your plans come to fruitation.

I dont mean to trouble you but I was halfway right when I said I got it working, the only thing working really is the unlimited shipment cards, but not the unlimited population. Ive modded steam games before but the file layout is a little different that say Skyrim, so again if you can help I would greatly appreciate it.

After going to steamapps, common then AOEIII it contains a bin file which contains the data folder which as of right now where I put the files to your mod. Theres also a "msxml" folder, and a directx folder. Thank you ahead of time.

did you move and replace the proto.xml file?

(Dont forget to make a backup before you do that)

Also: If you are trying to do this online, it wont work. It only works on LAN (if all computers have the mod installed) and single player

Yes I did, and made a backup. And I dont play games like this online because im a MAJOR turtle lol. Should I try replacing again? Oh this might help there are two proto files theres a proto.xml.XMB and the one that your mod replaces. Let me know if you think of something, and thank you very much for your help.

proto.xml.XMB doesn't get effected by this mod,

One more thing you can try if nothing else works is:

Open the mod's proto.xml
Open the original proto.xml

Copy all files from the mod's proto.xml
Highlight everything in the original proto.xml

Paste the mod's proto.xml text into the original so it replaces everything.

Thats the best I can think of right now. I hope it works

This is the last thing I can think of, there are protox and protoy files are those from the expansions? Should I try uninstall and reinstall to see if that does anything? Thank you so much for trying to help me, lot more than most people online would do.

Can you take a screen shot of the loading page and the home page of your aoe3 game? I want to make sure its the aoe3 game and not the expansion pack. Protox is War Chiefs, and Protoy is the Asian Destinies.

Send me the pictures at:


I am just really glad someone wants to play my mod so much they decide to ask me. When ever I have trouble with a mod I just delete it and move on to the next one. Thank you so much for looking at this mod, and I really hope the best comes out of all this trouble

OHHH!!!!!!!!! Ok im so sorry that why it wouldnt work completely. *Facepalm* Im so sorry. I just loaded it up not using TAD and it works. Gosh I feel so dumb. Ok now I really cant wait for the update and stuff lol. I really like this mod because I can have the huge armys and stuff without having to worry about a pop cap. that and the unlimited shipments are more realistic too. The only thing is balance really this mod has gotten me to love mortars lol.

Ive got it working now, seeing what you said got me thinking "What if I try just the regular version?" and sure enough it worked. Sorry for this useless hassle but hey taught me something.

And as for the Protos thats what I thought but I wasnt for sure so I just asked. Id ask to help on this but I honestly have no idea how to do anything mod wise. The only game ive ever modded myself was Red Alert 2. Thank you so much and sorry for kinda wasting time trying to figure this out when it was just the version I was using. Good luck on further patches I would love to see this mod completely finished.

I tried that before but it doesn't work. Is it only for the factions that are in the original game or does it work with the expansion factions? Thank you again for your help.
