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.
A completely new feature for AoE3, map control points. As you explore the map, flags are planted in fixed locations, flags which give line of sight and XP over time.
Be careful though, because the enemy can capture your control points and raise their flag instead!
They are present in all maps available withing the game.
