This mod started out as a 'Buildings Mod', with the objective to add more nice and useful buildings to the game, but many more improvements where needed and many ideas where coming so the 'Improvement Mod' was born. Working with the Steam and non-Steam versions, the mod upgrades the game with small and big changes alike, as well as necessary tweaks and adds to make the gameplay more complex, realistic, interesting, fun and challenging. All known bugs from the original game have been fixed. It's being updated very often and everything is of the highest quality and bug-less. Check out the "Features" tab for more details. This mod is only for The Asian Dynasties but requires AOE3+TWC+TAD 1.03.

Now some important facts about this mod.

Well, it started over a year ago and since then it has been continuously updated, every month with numerous updates. This is how I work, I like to release new versions as quickly as I can, and don't like to make people wait. Maybe it's not the best strategy but it's my strategy.
At the beginning, I only wanted to make a mod which adds more buildings and stuff, I for one liked to build and make nice towns everywhere, so I focused on adding unused buildings like the ones from campaigns. But I had many other ideas for all kinds of improvements, and while it was a lot of work for a single man I still started to work on them anyway.

What can you expect from this mod?
Well anything I can say. This is a very big project.
The first place where this mod appeared, a place I use even today as the main website to share it and immediately release updates, is AoE3 Heaven Games. Since it's release, my mod had the most downloads, comments and ratings in the modding category from the website, and will have so a long time from now.
Like any serious mod, mine has many revolutionary ideas and much 'eye candy'.
If you want to know what the mod is all about read the setup's 'Readme Information' or the 'readme' file after you install the mod.

While I work completely alone on the mod, over time I did used ideas from the community and accepted/requested help with various things from people who support my work.
I also used stuff from other popular or less poplar mods, sometimes with permissions, sometimes without, but I always gave credit and respected those who made them.

I don't know what more can I say, so if you have any questions be sure to ask.
And you might wanna check out the mod more often on it's blog than you check it here if you want to stay up to date, because I will release updates more often there than I will here.

For the end I want to apologize to all grammar nazis for my English, I try my best but please note that this has not affected the mod's quality in any way, I always triple check every word.

Complete change log in the "Features" tab, here on ModDB.
Check out the mod's blog and forum for more details!
If you want to play the mod with other people try the Steam Group!
Thank you for your time and I hope you will enjoy the mod.

The mod is available officially only in english but it has fan made german and french translations. I cannot fully recommend them as they are not made by me and can contain flaws but you can try them out if you want.
Those are all languages the mod is available in. You can find more info here:

Hello there mandosrex!
One question here. I could install the mod just fine.
I'm using the steam version, not pirated.
When I launch the game through your mod, it asks me for the CD key, I input the one Steam gave me, and it won't take it.
I looked for other CD keys just in case, no luck. I have your latest patcher, so I'm at a loss here.

Well you don't have to, as I said many times before the patcher DOES NOT need to be run in order to play the mod, just start Asian Dynasties via Steam and the mod will work.

The patcher is only for updating the mod. And if starting the game via Steam still requires a CDkey, I don't think the mod is to blame. But hey, who knows, weird things happen. Once again if you have any further problems look on the mod's blog for ways of contacting me.

Thank you for the quick reply.
I had read through your blog but I didn't see that piece of information, sorry for bothering you with something you had specified already.
I could make it work, though, in the exact way you say here, by attempting to open the game in many ways, before reading your answer. Thank you very much for giving all this hard work away freely, it's really a thing of admiration, what modders do. The mod certainly improves the experience of the game and makes it way more complete. I was 3 hours playing with it, didn't give me any problems, to the contrary.
Cheers!

Mod's blog -> Help and Tools -> NOTES:
- The patcher is just for updating the mod, you can run the normal The Asian Dynasties (age3y) exe and the mod will work.
- When starting the game from Steam, after installing the mod, choose to run The Asian Dynasties expansion.

It's all there. Anyway, glad to hear you made it work. Have fun.

Yes, I did modify the AI recently but I also did tests and it works without problems, even better I would say because I made the AI more powerful, there will be even more AI changes in then near future.

So the only thing I can tell you is to make sure you didn't mod the game by yourself or installed other stuff over it. Maybe reinstall everything and see if it works. If not and you are willing to let me have a look, go to the following link and look for ways of contacting me:
