The Improvement Mod touches on every aspect of the game, improving and tweaking every feature the game has to offer while also adding many new ones.
The mod adds new units, buildings, maps, civilizations, soundtracks and game modes. All of this results in a very refined gameplay experience powered by an improved AI and more detailed graphics. Balancing is also a main focus and the mod has been tuned for competitive play. Check the "Features" for more details.
The mod works with both versions of the game, Steam and non-Steam, and is only available for The Asian Dynasties expansion but requires Age of Empires 3 plus The WarChiefs expansion and The Asian Dynasties 1.3. It is recommended to install over the AoE3 Complete Collection (Steam version) as it contains everything the mod needs.

Main features of the Improvement Mod:
- new Large, Regicide, Custom and themed maps
- new gameplay features such as Control Points, improved King of the Hill mode and Trade Monopoly
- overall many balance changes and gameplay tweaks, plus some returning features from AoE2
- new original soundtracks, taken from campaigns and other AoE related sources
- new improved AI made to work with the new added features
- improved atmosphere and visual effects such as smoke, dust, water, explosions and blood
- new playable civilization, the early formed USA (Americans)
- new Consulate allies and improved Revolution civilizations
- new sounds, cards, techs, units and buildings
- many fixes across the board, from broken textures to bugged units, techs, pathfinding and sounds
- and much, much more

The giveaway has ended and Steam user "Shin Tha Wan *SVK*" is the winner!
(he was the first to respond, you'd be amazed how hard is to find people online and give them free games...)

In other news, the Improvement Mod now has 18 custom maps, carefully selected from the map making community.
(proper credit has been given for each one of them in-game)
Also, the Italians will soon be added to the game!
(as Consulate allies :)

Thanks for playing my mod! Stay awesome.

Error grabbing master server list, this is all i am getting after trying the downloader and the patcher. Seems like a really cool mod but i have tried everything that was suggested and i still only get master server error.

I'd also like to say i've gone to just about every site including dropbox all of them seem to be having issues. I have downloaded hundreds of mods on moddb and never had an issue, i also see a lot of people are having issues downloading this, if you have time to help that would be cool thank you.

If patcher doesn't work, manually download the mod from the GitHub server and install it via "copy > paste" into the game's main directory.
You'll know it's in the right place when it will ask to replace files.
If you can't manage that then I cannot help you.
Github.com

And yes, this was already explained here
Moddb.com
and here
Impmod.blogspot.ro
and here
Aoe3.heavengames.com
and probably in other places as well.

Hey, you're the one who said you've seen a lot of people having problems with this, I just wonder how you didn't see me explaining how to make it work.

Coureurs are all male. Same for Settler Wagons.
But just why?

perhaps a "tower-wall" , i.e. towers being part of the walls , might be an idea.

And an idea I thought about. But what would stop someone to just spam cheap "tower-walls" everywhere?

Walls in general are a problem. If you give someone the liberty and opportunity to abuse features and troll they will ultimately do it.

Make tower-walls as un upgrade on the walls (like the doors). Make it a bit expensive, and only allow it when there is enough place, i.e. one or two wall parts on each side of the tower.
So that if someone want to spam it, he first has to build a whole wall section with at least 3 partsn then upgrade one of the part, and then destroy the rest of the wall. He better build a simple tower imo ^^
