What you should know before installing War of the Triple Alliance:

  • The mod requires the original Age of Empires III and its both expansion packs, The WarChiefs and The Asian Dynasties.
  • The mod requires also that you update TAD to 1.03 - without the patch, it's impossible to play the mod.
  • You must have a clean install of the game, without any mod installed. WotTA is not compatible with any other mod, not even WotTA's previous versions.
  • WotTA auto-installs, for your convenience.
  • WotTA is free and must not be sold.
  • WotTA has been made by fans - and has many bugs that should be pointed out to be fixed in the upcoming patches.
  • WotTA modifies your game permanently. You must reinstall the game entirely whenever you want to play the clean version of the game.
  • WotTA cannot be played on ESO, but can on Hamachi, Gameranger and lan games.

    Download Links




    War of the Triple Alliance adds/replaces the following:
  • 9 new civilizations have been added: Brazilians, Paraguayans, Colombians, Argentines, Mexicans, Americans, Canadians, Tupi and Koreans.
  • 40 new random maps have been included. The WotTA-only ones can be found in the main list; the others, by clicking on "Custom Maps" at the skirmish screen.
  • 9 new Native Settlements can appear on the new maps. They are: Bandeirante, Republiqueta, Quilombola, Guarani, Guaicuru, Aymara, Pirate, Order of Christ and Sertanejo.
  • Age up to a brand new age: The Great War age. At age V you can research a new tech, Great War, that will enable World War I-themed units such as zeppelins, airplanes, dreadnoughts, tanks, and several new techs.
  • Two brand new cultures: Latin Americans and North Americans. Each with an exclusive gameplay!
  • Church completely redesigned. When playing as Europeans, Latin Americans or North Americans, you can adopt a religion and enable the redesigned priest and multiple religion-specific techs! There are 10 different religions to choose.
  • Revolutionaries redesigned. New bonuses, new politicians, new units!
  • Spies completely redesigned. Now available to all civs but Latin Americans, use them to attack stealthy in several ways.

    Known bugs:

  • The infamous "replacetexture bug". Video cards with low RAM memory wont show new textures when you get to industrial age, and some buildings, specially WW1 ones, will appear black. If you're getting this bug, you can save the same, close the game and then load the saved game. RAM will be refreshed and you'll see textures again.
  • You can't create a Korean HC, or old civs HCs. You need to load saved games with them that I've prepared earlier.
  • Screenshots for everyone!

    I'd dearly like to comment on your spelling and grammar, but I guess I'll abstain from that. As for your question: No, it won't. Those stats are all saved on Microsoft servers, not on your own computer, and as such cannot be deleted or overwritten through the installation of mods.

    That's nothing to do with WotTA... Look at the Tutorial database and you'll find a link to a page that explains what you're having to deal with.

    You say "curse you wota"? It's like saying "curse you, god!". In the end, you die and wotta is still alive, laughing at you.

    Anyway, what caused that is something called noobness. It's some kind of disease, it doesn't kill but it highly disturbs your life.

    Obviously, you did uninstall WotTA, but some there were some leftovers. And you did not delete the AoE3 folder that was left there, you installed AoE3 over this dirty folder and now it doesn't work.

    How to fix it? Uninstall Aoe3, then delete its folder to make sure everything is deleted, and then install aoe3 again.

    Instead of cursing our mod you could have simply asked.

    Lol guys calm down! Yea i went into system and it turns out that there was a WoTa file hiding in it, then i deleted it and it works fine... Anyways, NIIIIICE mod, i like the whole blimp thing with the mustard gas and bombs. One last question, how do i play it online? I tried installing gameranger and when i try to host on gameranger no WoTa comes up.. just the default aoe games.. (by the way, i know lots of work has gone into the mod, and its really awesome, its just i was frustrated that the file kept hiding.. keep it up guys )

    Well, it uses the Asian Dynasties EXE, so that'll be your answer.

    I have a question: I am playing with the Brazilian, so i take the italian imigrants and build my italian TC. After that, i want to research an tecnology or something like that, but it says i cant because i havent one thing. That's the problem: Theres a symbol(more like a ship) that i dont know what is, but i know that i need this to research the tecnologies. Please can somebody tells me what it is and do i do to get it.
    Thanks.

    That symbol is the 'Shipment' resource. You can spend it there when you have one instead of sending a shipment from your Home City.

    To play WotTA in GameRanger, you'll need to host a game of Age of Empires III: TAD and all the players who you try to play with must also have TAD installed.
