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.

- 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:

Read the complete change log here on ModDB or after installing the mod or in the setup 'readme information'.

There are some simple reasons for why it doesn't work:
Do you have both expansions?
Do you have the latest official updates?
Do you have any cracks?

You noticed extremely, and I mean extremely wrong.
It works with any version of AoE3, Steam or non-Steam.
