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 Edition (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 overall many balance changes
- new original soundtracks, taken from campaigns and other AoE related sources
- new improved AI made to work with the new added features
- improved visual effects such as smoke, dust, water, explosions and blood
- new 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.

They are all (I think) already changed.
Each unique upgrade for common units (such as Redcoats for Musketeers and Life Guards for Hussars) gives a unique, special texture.

Go to the game's directory and delete the ".git" folder, then try again (by running the patcher as administrator).
And of course make sure you have the latest patcher, like the one here on the mod's ModDB.

Yes. If you read any description, including the one from the top of this page, you see:

"It is recommended to install over the AoE3 Complete Edition (Steam version) as it contains everything the mod needs."

Best mod in 5.4 .After that... Too many changes that make no sense. No vill pop then restore, less pop, more pop, unlimited ships then limmited. You never know what comes next :)). You are probably one of the best moders but pls stop changing things :))).
Drasticaly changing the meta game atracts only casual players and most of us who use mods want something improved like you offered us in 5.4.

Thumbs down my post if i'm wrong.

You know, if people would have told me they hated the new changes, I would have stopped. But you're like pretty much the only one who said exactly what bothers you.

As I explained on the blog, I want to address some of the problems veteran players have with the game. But at the same time I wanted to experiment with new radical stuff. The experimenting is pretty much over though, so there's like only 1 big thing I want to tackle and then I'm pretty much done for the time being.

Or not, who knows.
