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.

Description

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' and all games must be updated to the latest versions, v1.03 for TAD)! Mostly recommended only if you have any kind of errors or other problems. If you have problems with missing models, sounds or buildings icons then try to re-install 'The War Chiefs'. It has some installation glitches. And if that doesn't work then find out how to fix it at the end of this description. High video settings are recommended for all visual changes to work properly. Please do not 'update' the mod with any rip-offs or other modifications from mods 'designed' to work with this one. To make sure you always have the latest version check out the mod's blog periodically.


Un/Installation
- make sure you have the latest versions of all 3 games (v1.03 for TAD), get the latest patches from the game's official website or use the game's updaters
- run the installer, select your AoE3 directory and continue with the installation
- to completely remove the mod please re-install the game

For the latest patches go to:
Agecommunity.com

For more updates and stuff go to:

A terrific mod! Well pollished and ballanced with great new concepts incorporated into gameplay (mainly the ability to rotate buildings before placement). I'm enjoying AOE3 all over again, as are my friends. Thanks mandosrex. Excelent work and much appreciated.

The video is extremely old... And I mean it...
If you want to get a good taste of the mod you'll have to play it.

Uhm... the installer doesn't need the "age3.exe", it can be installed anywhere. Only the patcher needs the exes.

Make sure this is the path you install it in for Steam:
/Steam/steamapps/common/Age of Empires 3/bin/
