This mod aims at improving every aspect of the incredible game that is Age of Empires 3 and its expansions. From new civilizations to new units, buildings, technologies, maps, game modes and even soundtracks, the Improvement Mod has been in works since 2009 and is the perfect choice for players who just want to get the most out of their game without changing it completely.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS! I am leaving it here as an archive of my previous work, but if you want to play the latest version of the mod then avoid this.
The Improvement Mod Patcher can be used to fully download and install the mod on a clean installation of AoE3. The Patcher can also be used to keep the mod up-to-date. The patcher is NOT required to be run in order to play the mod.
You need to have both expansions installed (TWC and TAD) and the latest official updates. The Steam Complete Edition is recommended as it contains everything the mod needs. Download the Patcher and put it in the game's main directory, where all the executables are.
Run the Patcher as ADMINISTRATOR and wait until it finishes downloading, after which you can run the game from the Patcher itself or from the normal TAD exe, the mod will be playable either way.
If you cannot make the patcher work then you can manually download and install the mod; you can download it directly from the patcher's server on Github.
If you have any problems be sure to ask for help here or on the mod's blog.
