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. 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.
The first Improvement Mod holiday event starts tomorrow, featuring a modified King of the Hill/Hold the Fort! game mode in which capturing the Christmas tree gives access to free presents!
This special update will also feature lost official Christmas content like festive props and the Winter Wonderland map.
