Posted by on

You must have been disappointed that many units in Age of Empires III do not change with mainline upgrade. It has been changed. Now unique upgrades have been added to many of the units along with some fixes to historical inaccuracies.

I have got lots of help from the Unit Upgrades modpack by Imperiosus on AOE3 heaven. So a lot of credits for this goes to him. Though some of these have been improved by me too.

Here's a list of changes:

Abus Gun - Custom made textures. Weapon itself upgrades as follows: Veteran - Black Barrel, Guard - Bronze Barrel, Imperial - Steel Barrel with stained wood and gold trim.

Caravel - Custom made textures for Indian Sails. Now it has Mughal Sun Burst on the Sails.

Cassador - Replaced base unit with unused "Age 1" texture, and bumped up all other textures by one age to have a change for the Imperial Age. Guard (now Imperial) Cassador now wears backpack (as ES may have intended)

Cavalry Archer - Replaced base unit with unused "Age 1" texture, and bumped up all other textures by one age to have a change for the Imperial Age

Cossack - Replaced base unit with unused "Age 1" texture, and bumped up all other textures by one age to have a change for the Imperial Age

Crossbowman - "Besteiros" upgrade gives the Crossbowman the unused "Imperial Crossbowman" texture

Falconet - Custom made textures. Weapon itself upgrades as follows: Field Gun - Bronze Barrel, Imperial - Steel Barrel with stained wood cart

Frigate - Created custom made imperial texture. Imperial Man-o-War texture replaces all instances of the existing cross patteé with the Jersusalem cross, thus adding four smaller crosses between the arms of the main one. The ship's wood is stained, white colors made more pronounced, golden edged portholes, steel broadside and deck cannons (like imperial falconet and cannon).

- Created custom made exclusive Ottoman textures. Figate texture replaces the Christian cross on sails with the star and crescent of Islam and the Ottoman Empire, and Imperial Man-o-War texture bears the seal of the Sultan's Imperial Navy (smaller star and crescent encircled by a large sun-like burst).
