Brings the triumph and turmoil of some of history's greatest Asian civilizations to stunning life. Wielding the symbolic power of immense Wonders of the world, lead the armies of China, India or Japan in a struggle for dominance against the European powers, or against each other. Crush opponents with ranks of new military units, such as the Chinese Flame Thrower, the Indian Siege Elephant, or the fierce Japanese Shogun. Or play the role of master diplomat, and befriend your allies at the Consulate, biding your time and building a force of foreign weaponry that will topple your enemies. In Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties, players use the might of the East to bring the world to its knees.
This is one of my crowning achievements a coder, and on heavengames.com, where I post as murdilator, I currently make some of the finest AI mods available for Age of Empires III. This AI is based on the Drauger AI, by Felix Hermansson. But it builds and upgrades two layers of walls and sufficient towers, warhuts and castles. Traits: All European AIs and Native American AIs play well. Indian AI, Japanese AI, Chinese AI should work much better now as well.
This AI mod comes after several years of working with AI.
Plus: Builds two layers of wall, and seven towers or warmest or five castles. Trains mostly superior infantry and cavalry units, and I have been working with the Indian AI to send Howdahs and Urumi from the home city.
Easy has 0.55x handicap, Moderate 0.80 handicap, Hard 1.2x handicap, and Expert 1.5x Handicap.
Plays ok in 2v2 games, and sometimes needs the player to demand attacks from the chat box to consistently attack.
For LAN or multiplayer use: You can still play regular games, but if you want a comp stomp both need the file to play versus the computer.
File goes into Program Files (86x), Age of Empires III, AI3. The only file that is replaced is AIloaderstandarrd.xs, which loads: AIHelotMajorHeader.xs and AIHelotMajorMain.xs instead of AIHeader.xs and AIMain.xs. To revert simply open the file with notepad and scroll down and edit those two lines. Or if you have steam simply validate your files again.
I guarantee you, you will probably want to keep the AI!
