Designer's Mod for Patch 1.12 version 1.03
Posted on 12/07/06 @ 03:11 AM (updated 11/27/07
Age of Empires III Designers Mod
Now with auto install/uninstall exe
Double click the AoE III Designers Mod icon and follow on-screen instructions.
Now , easier than ever!! I have placed an icon on your desktop that says "AoE III Restore". Simply double click the "AoE III Restore" icon and the program will remove all files placed in your game by the AoE III Designers Mod and restore all files that were replaced by the AoE III Designers Mod back to what they were before you installed the mod.
If you had the original, unmodded Age of Empires III on your machine, the uninstaller (AoE III Restore) will restore the game's Data and ART files back to that state.
IMPORTANT!! If you had another mod installed, the uninstaller (AoE III Restore) will restore the game's Data files back to that state. It will NOT restore any modded art files. It is highly recommended to backup any previously installed modded art files before installing the Age of Empires III Designers Mod.
The War Chiefs expansion pack:
If you have the The War Chiefs xpack, this mod will still work, however, to play with the AoE III Designers Mod, you will need to open the game with the original "Age of Empires III" disc and icon.
1) Obviously, the Designers Mod is now packed into an auto installer/uninstaller.
2) I found a few more objects in the game files. These are now available.
- HCBoston TradeCenter
- HCFrench Dock
- HCFrench Market
CusterGrant for the Alt Trees, HC and Crop terrains, Fireworks and weather effects and several new buildings.
sziggi for his RPG mod including nugget am_Cave, Magic Spring, weather effects, and several special units.
Twoqtimes2 for the HC skyboxes, unshiny cabin, "Q" objects, other objects, Flying IGC Units, repairs and auto installer/uninstaller.
jonathan1222 for the HC units
ToMyBoy for the original HC Buildings
Poisonium for the HC water objects, Placeable Trading Post, and Stagecoach.
RiderOfEternity and BigFatZ for the Japanese Ronin units and tents.
Look for the New Skybox add-on from Twoqtimes2

This should have been uploaded under Misc I suppose, the review system doesn't work well with this... anyway, I'll give it the grade it deserves, a 5.
This helps a lot with the sky problem! And a couple of funny objects on top of it. This should be installed for any designer in my humble opinion. I made a " technical scenario " with all the objects available in AoE3 with this excellent addition... If you're interested.
I had to reinstall AoE3 and realized I couldn't do anything without this mod any longer, since most of the stuff I liked was in it, and not in the orignal AoE3 as I thought!
A 5, the least I can do! ( True! Not easy to rate such a mod here... )

Definitely an awesome mod for scenario designers. I'm currently using it for a scenario I am designing and I have to say that this mod will make any map way more exciting with the extra additions. This should be a requirement for future scenario designers. Try it out, you will not be sorry.
