This mod completely overhauls the game. Each age now feels more extended and isn't rushed, as well as gameplay is more strategic than just spamming units from production facilities. It is best used in multiplayer. It also tries to re-balance the entire game and add unique units to underwhelming nations and take away unique units from overpowered ones. ATTENTION STEAM USERS: A STEAM-FRIENDLY VERSION HAS BEEN RELEASED ON THE STEAM WORKSHOP. READ THE BELOW ARTICLES FOR INFO.

It's called 'Quick Game'. It's under 'Singleplayer'.

Can this be enabled in multiplayer (extended edition)?

It's meant for multiplayer. Just don't use scripts or it will desync.

Btw, it seems I am able to play and choose this mod in singleplayer but not able to choose it when I am creating a multiplayer game when playing the extended edition copy of the game.

Do you use Steam version? If so, you should subscribe on it in the workshop.

If I downloaded Extended Edition from the Microsoft Store, where can I find my game folder to install the mod?
I don't see anything sensical inside the hidden WindowsApps folder.
Thanks

Did you check C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Games\Rise of Nations\
and C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Games\Rise of Nations?
