Commonwealth Global Defense League Asian Pact

Since Age of Empires 3 is getting older and older,and the release of The Asian Dynasties dates back several years, it's time to regenerate this game!
We started in January 2009 to create our modification The Forgotten Empires.
Our aim is to include new features, strategies, new units, buildings, technologies and nations by preserving the old ones. Even the game idea and the style should be retained.
Therefore it is possible in The Forgotten Empires to play old known civilisations like French or Dutch or even one of the eight new ones in mulitplayer games.
These nations concerning balance, will be adapted to the old ones to allow merging among each other.

Originalities and Features

The Forgotten Empires will be created by a team of the Global No Rush Community. As the name suggests the modification deals with no rush games.
The mod includes an entire new system for choosing your nation. For this reason the final determination for choosing the civilisation occurs primary in game.
This offers new strategies and and possibilities concerning intelligence and hiding the own nation from the enemies.
8 complete new nations : Incas, Pirates, Egyptians, Mongolians, Italians, East India Trading Company, Western Pacific Railroad Company, United States

GNRC Rules for example :
-use the Incan Chasqui Messenger technology to reduce trainpoints of your units on your current map.
-use the GNRC Wall System to reduce the number of walls around your town by enhancing the hitpoints and buildpoints and retain the same prevention as before. A more realistic view of your town, more place for creating buildings and much more big awesome battles be the result.
-enhance the maximum number of Units or/and native warriors etc..

New treaty maps for no rush 40 and more...
All rated [TFE] mod games will be captured at different rating platforms and even in the GNRC Rating.

DO NOT INSTALL THIS MOD IF YOU HAVE THE STEAM VERSION OF AGE OF EMPIRES 3. This MOD is ONLY FOR AOE 3: TAD CD Version. If AOE asks you to enter a Steam key, you can#t play this mod.! The only chance is to activate the mod manually until we find someone with some time to upgrade it.

The player numbers with an american timezone are growing. Check back later for some statistics. We try to get the whole numbers and put them into some graphs.

Furthermore our team starts developing some new AI algorithm. Perhaps we will be able to show you a first small and easy AI only made for The Forgotten Empires.

it is surely the best mod for AOE III ever created but i think IMHO this flag you put for egypt in da mod is created in 1984 and the game is about the 19th-20th century , can you change it to the original flag of the egyptian little empire (included egypt,sudan and libya) during the era between 1867 – 1914 (Khedivate of Egypt) as in the image ?

I am guessing after reading the slough of posts about AI not working, that this mod is no good for single player skirmishes. Tragic

Does this work in single player?
The games load for me but the AI does nothing.
