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 of the game, this mod tries to upgrade the game with small, big and necessary tweaks, changes and adds to make the gameplay more 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 TAD 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 is not the best strategy but it is my strategy.
At the beginning, I only wanted to make a mod which adds more buildings, I for one like to build and make nice towns, so I focused on adding unused buildings like the ones from campaigns. But, I had far more ideas, and while it was a lot of work for one man I still started to work on them anyways.

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 for my poor English, I try my best but I know I am far from speaking it perfect. This has not affected the quality of the mod in any way, I always double check every word.

Complete change log in the "Features" tab, here on ModDB.
Check out the mod's blog and forum for more details!
Thank you for your time and I hope you will enjoy the mod.

Well, everything must come to an end, I realised this a long time ago. This mod has been going for years, and for now I'm still working on it from time to time, but it can't last forever.

I just want to remind everyone that if I ever stop working on the mod and someone else wants to continue updating it, please don't support it. Usually I'd have no problem with it but I spent too much time and sweat on this mod I just don't agree with someone else modifying and continuing it. This is also one of the reasons I work alone, its my baby and I'm the only one messing with it.

Thanks for playing.

No it is not, as they have a part that should face outwards and one with leaders, the game is not smart enough to know which way you want them to face...

There's a simple pattern you should follow, for example if you wanna build walls to the right of your base you build them from up to down, if its under your base you build them from right to left and so on.

Something like this:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
^..................V
^......your......V
^......base......V
^..................V
^<<<<<<<<<<<<V

Got it?

Don´t work age3x.exe and age3.exe after to apply the mod, Asian dynasties work well, i have the special edition. Any idea?
It would be possible that you put the armies of Native Americans in the Asian Dynasties expansion, to use all the armies together.
Example: Sioux VS Japan.

You can have Native civs in Asian Dynasties if you have the Warchiefs expansion, but if you do have it yet Native civs don't show up then you're experiencing the famous Warchiefs registry bug, something from the original game.
Go to my mod's blog for a link to download an un-bugged version of the game with all expansions and updates, then apply my mod over it, if you want to.

As for vanilla and Warchiefs not working after you install my mod, that is sadly normal. I do not know why it happens, I never checked if they were still working while I was modding because frankly you do not need them anymore if you have Asian Dynasties, as it contains everything the previous games had and even more.

For some reason I can't build the resources buildings. The lumber camp icon builds a command post instead.

The European resource buildings were removed because of balance issues, you can however make the Church generate coin via a tech, also the Livestock Pen was moved to the Native tech trees and yes, it generates food now.
