Revolutionary Politician Balance - Updated

Author File Description

File Details
Game Version: TAD
Revolutionary Politician Balance (SP/LAN only)

by dr nefarious
19 August 2008 (Updated)

This is more of an experiment than a real "mod". I created it to test out some ideas of mine about improving the balance between the different revolutionary politicians. It improves Bolivar, L'Ouverture and Washington to bring them somewhat on a par with the other five.

The mod is for TAD on patch level 1.01a. To install it simply copy the two files 'techtreey.xml' and 'stringtabley.xml' into the game folder '..\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III\data'. Note that the mod is for single player and LAN games only and will cause problems when you try to play online!

CAUTION: You need to overwrite the original files with the ones provided here. Be sure to backup the original files first so you can undo the change later!

This mod improves the three revolutionary politicians Bolivar, L'Ouverture and Washington to bring them somewhat on a par with the other five.

The following politicians have been changed:

Old: +5% hitpoints for all units
New: 8 Nitro Petards

Old: +10% hitpoints for Colonial Militia
New: 12 Colonial Militia, +10% hitpoints & damage for Colonial Militia

Old: +25% hitpoints for Gatling Guns
New: 4 Gatling Guns, +25% hitpoints & damage for Gatling Guns

The others have been left unchanged:

Bonifacio: 20 Legendary Tupi Blackwood Archers
Hidalgo: 10 Outlaw Pistoleros & 10 Outlaw Riders
O'Higgins: 10 Imperial Hussars
San Martin: 6 Imperial Howitzers
Santander: 3 Ironclads

As I said above this is more of an experiment than a real "mod", but I've tested it and it works properly for single player games or on the LAN. My goal here is to find a better balance for the revolutionary politicians (not to improve the revolution feature as such), so if someone comes up with a good idea, drop me a line here.

PS: Thanks to Felix Hermansson whose 'Revolution Boom-Back' readme file I hijacked to create this description! ;-)
