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.
For now, this mod tries to upgrade the game with small, big and necessary tweaks, changes and adds to make the gameplay more interesting, fun and challenging. All known bugs from the original game have been fixed.
More great things to come!
Special thanks to aLEN, GhosttSkiiehh, Sanpedrocactus, Arkantoz, WotTA and everyone else!
Notice that some units or buildings present in this mod are taken from the Napoleonic Era or War of the Triple Alliance mods.
Every version of this mod should be installed on a fresh, unmodified version of 'Age of Empires 3 The Asian Dynasties' (must also include 'The War Chiefs' and all games must be updated to the latest versions, v1.03 for TAD)! Mostly recommended only if you have any kind of errors or other problems.
If you have problems with missing models, sounds or buildings icons then try to re-install 'The War Chiefs'. It has some installation glitches.
And if that doesn't work then find out how to fix it at the end of this description.
High video settings are recommended for all visual changes to work properly.
Please do not update the mod with any rip-offs or other modifications from mods designed to work with this one.
The mod is only available in English and French (fan made).
This mod is only for TAD but requires AOE3+TWC+TAD 1.03
