Every version of this mod should be installed on a fresh, unmodified version of 'Age of Empires 3 The Asian Dynasties' (must also include 'The War Chiefs...
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 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 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.
