† Fortified Walls Mod -RC2.1 †

Current Update Status:
AS OF JUNE 2009:
RC 2.1 TAKEN DOWN! Wrong version xD!
This is a simple maintenance patch to accomodate for the fan patch and 1.02

*********
THIS MOD WILL WORK WITH
THE LATEST PATCH + THE AGE OF SANCTUARY FAN PATCH 1.1a!!
*********


STAY TUNED!

--Update Key--
Green = Updates are released
Blue = Progress on the mod
Amber = Issues/problems/etc


Many people have been wondering why you could never build the fort walls, also no-one has currently worked out how the wall system worked...until now!

For the first time in AO3/TAD you are now able to built the fortified walls which have occupied the bases of the AOE3/TWC/TAD campaigns.

Created via an upgrade it works in the exact same way as the "Bastion" upgrade and turns the image into the fort walls image but with death animations and the actual model AND attackable by the enemy! It really is the actual wall, and it has build animations.

Through many hours of tedious work and frequent "WHAT THE FUCK?" moments...this is version 2 of my mod now, only for TAD now because its easier code, but if the demand is high, I'll try for AOE3/TWC versions too.

Also...a surprise is in this version :P .

----------------------------
**Installation**(WITHOUT AOS FAN PATCH):
----------------------------
ALWAYS BACK UP FILES FIRST BEFORE INSTALLING MODS!

Simply extract the folder in the archive (using "winrar" or "winzip" like programs) to the "data" and "art" folders.

These files are usually found in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III (Or your "root" in other words)

MAKE A BACK UP OF "PROTOY.xml" AND "TECHTREEY.xml" and "STRINGTABLEY.xml" FIRST AS THIS MOD ALTERS THOSE FILES.

As you may become lost if you want to un-install. Then load up the game and enjoy!!

----------------------------
**Un-installation** (WITHOUT AOS FAN PATCH):
----------------------------

(X = The drive you installed the game on)

Simply remove the folder "buildings" folder from X:\\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III\art.
AND THEN REPLACE your "backed up" copies of "PROTOY.xml" AND "TECHTREEY.xml" and "STRINGTABLEY.xml" to X:\\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III\data

Viola! Your sorted.

--------------------------------------------------------
**Installation (WITH AOS FAN PATCH)**:
--------------------------------------
------------------

Make a back up of the DATA folder in C:\Documents and Settings\USERPROFILE\My Documents\My Games\Age of

Empires 3\Fan Patches\Age Sanctuary 1.1 and put it somewhere safe.

Extract the DATA + ART files of my mod here.

Run the TAD Patch launcher, selecting the AOS Fan Patch 1.1a as normal

ENJOY!!
-----------------------------------------------------------
**Un-installtion (WITH AOS FAN PATCH)**:
-------------------------------------------
----------------

Simply remove my files mentioned, and replace the original files back here in the above directory or wherever

you installed your game.

Run patch launcher again as normal to confirm the default files

----------------------------
Bugs and limitations:
----------------------------

Currently there are no known bugs, but there's a couple of limitations (1 wall/mod related and 1 game engine related).

1)
Wall structure, currently it matters not correct? Well I'm afraid this has to change, example is that walls face backwards if not layed properly, basically you have to build ALL walls like this from now on in the below examples fashion.

You know how most people lay walls like this:

}------------------} (arrows indicating direction of when you "drag out" the wall) from left to right?

Well to make the walls face the right way round with the "wall" bit facing out you need to do the reverse and from right to left:

{------------------{

And for vertical instead of this way:

V
|
|
|

You do this:

Picture Reference:

RIGHT WAY
WRONG WAY

Got it? Good.

I apologise that it has to be like this, but it is UNFIXABLE

One more thing:

-As of typing this...adding more that 25 cards is not possible, it seems to be hard coded into TAD and
TWC at the moment, but works for AOE3 still. No-one seems to know what they did, how they did it,
or if there's anyway to get more than 25 cards for decks, I know there are "workarounds" such as
copy/paste techs from high level homecitys etc, but nothing all that feasible yet.

2) So if anyone knows of any way (like in the AOE3 "40 Cards for HC" mod) to increase the max cards limit practically, do let me know and you shall be rewarded hehe :D!

But FEAR NOT! As I have many ideas to get around this for you all, which I'm currently experimenting on :).

.

AND REMEMBER! PLEASE DON'T MODIFY OR CHANGE ANY OF MY CODE AND RE-RELEASE IT WITHOUT ASKING PERMISSION FROM ME FIRST AND CREDITING ME WHERE DUE...Otherwise I will hunt down your your ass! ^^! Seriously...its not big...its not clever... and it harms the whole modding community.

-------------------------------
*Things to come in the future:*
-------------------------------

Quick Overview:

-Addition of more new upgrades to make other civs more overall balanced, such as additional
defences..."recovered" lost technologies due to a possible "copy+paste" job from ensemble them
selves lol.

-Extended build limits on some buildings to accommodate balancing.

-Some new SUPREME upgrades which really hit hard!!...but all in good balance.

-Giving you...the players more choice over what you want to upgrade and when.

-Providing suitable icons, names, description, "resistance" values, upgrade attributes + bonus's plus some other nice features

-Adding some new cards! New special abilities for each race (hopefully) focusing on their strengths and weaknesses.

-Oh and a better program for the "readme", I'll do it in "word" next time then port to adobe so its nicer on the eyes :).

Please Enjoy!

There are many other adjustments that could be added to the game.
Such as changing the system so that the gatherers have to return to the buildings in order to add the collected ressources to your stockpile, making it possible to adjust the game speed and other player options when playing custom maps, etc. :-]

Oh, and the possibility to garrison any kind of man unit inside buildings to fire out, promotion for a given number of kills and a realistic change meaning that trees fall before harvesting the lumber

***UPDATES***

Make sure your keeping an eye on this mod page people or MODB's "main" news section :).

(I.E Via clicking "PC" on the main page then "news" for example) because in the coming few days, there's going to be a major progress report featuring information about:

-Content that will be in RC3
-Current things/features I'm working on
-Screenshots of more icons, units, buildings, etc
-Questions you want answered, features you'd like to see
-Taking the mod to the next level

So pay attention, "Track" my mod if it helps, and most importantly make sure you give me as much constructive feedback as possible :).

@ Kenobi.

I'll update you, and everyone on that subject, in the upcoming news release which should be up by Saturday :).

Umm yes they should. As I said i will look into that idea in RC4 :).

I've had a bit of a setback here today folks...i suddenly got s **** load of infections from this...something i downloaded lol. Might of been from this torrent i got as a reserve but, who knows.

So i've had to go into lockdown currently, so RC3 is delayed for another 12 hours or so.

BUT FEAR NOT!

I have managed to get some AWESOME pictures to use as icons for 3 of my "main" upgrades which will feature in RC3, the newly titled "MegaTex™" so to speak :).

Stay tuned a little longer :D.
