Does anyone have any clue what the software of the modding tools do so I can edit the data inside the scenario files and get them to work in Age of Empires 3?

I tried extracting the data from an Age of Empires 3 Scenario file like Ykkrosh mentioned in http://aoe3.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=st&fn=14&tn=30622&st=5#post6. The software I used was offzip and packzip. I got a pretty good understanding of the terrain data. When I stripped the file of the 4 bytes header and 4 bytes CRC, scanned it with offzip which said that 100% of the bytes consist of a valid compressed stream, but I cant compress the archive back to zlib. When I try to inflate the file then deflate it again I don't get the same file back.
I compare the CRC's, they never match, the byte size is slightly off after deflation.

I couldn't find a way to contact Ykkrosh since he might know what Im doing wrong so I came here. Probably old news.
