Not only that, the entire armies are extremely expensive because they have been made 2 times bigger. Plus they can only be used once per game to prevent spamming. It's these ones below that this applies to.

Holy Roman Army
Mediterranean Army
Highland Army
Asian Army
Four Privateers
Six Privateers

Also, I made them cost 2 shipments each to make them very difficult to get. So it benefits expert players.

SHIPS:

The "Admiralty" upgrade was updated to give Privateers a build limit of 8. Only 6 can be sent before the upgrade.

Ships were also made a tiny bit more powerful plus they have a damage bonus against buildings. This was requested.

DEFENCES:

The walls have been given more hitpoints.

The fort and towers are more powerful and have better range.

UPGRADES:

"Wallenstein Contracts" is nomally used to make mercs get shipped for free for Germany. Which threatens the game's balance. It's effects are changed to make mercs take up less population space.

The said upgrade costs 5000 Coin. "Mercenary Loyalty" makes it 4000 Coin.

The "Black Watch" shipment from the British church makes Highlanders into Black Watch soldiers. It only changes their name though. I never done this, the game does this on it's own. I might edit this upgrade.

EXPLORER:

He has been made into a better fighter. Although not all that great. Shot power was increased to 15 and sword attack to 20. Plus the Explorer can do TRIPLE damage to infantry.

ARCHERS:

The archers fire at normal range at buildings.

ARTILLERY:

The Rocket unit has been given a range of 35.

Rate of fire is 6 seconds.

The Great Bombard and Heavy Cannon have 30 range.

MEDIOCRE BOMBARD:

Name's changed to "Legendary Bombard".

Shot Power decreased from 5000 to 2500.

Fires real cannon balls.

Has a range of 40.

Rate of fire is 6 seconds.

STRING EDITS:

Guard Longbowman = Guard Yeoman

Imperial Longbowman = Imperial Yeoman

Warships for Britain have some extra random names.

STARTING RESOURCES:

All crates in the beginning of a skirmish game are now the large variant.

INSTALLATION:

This is a compressed "Data" folder from the Programs Folder of AOE III. Replace the original data folder with this one by placing it in C://Program files/Microsoft Games/Age of Empires 3. BE SURE TO BACK IT UP THOUGH! Just in case.

Must have first patch installed.

BUGS:

The Coin price tags disappear after using the merc cards the first time in a level. However, the price itself still remains.

The German Merc cards say they replace Uhlans with mercs when it doesn't. I'm working on fixing it.

The mod doesn't work for the campaign when it comes to infinite mercs. Skirmish works fine though.

VERSION 1.01 CHANGES:

Some unique upgrades are modified for Britian, Spain, Portuguese and Dutch. It's the following upgrades that have been modified.

Black Watch
Wild Geese
Waardgelders
Order of the Tower and Sword

Some work is still being done for these upgrades. What has been done though is that they make certain mercs stronger than anyone elses.
