Update Pack 4 - Mod

Author File Description
File Details
Game Version: AoE3+TWC+TAD
**Installation Directions**

1. Back up your files by copying the AI3, Art, Data, RM3, and Startup folder and the files loading1024y0.ddt, loading1024y1.ddt, loading1024y2.ddt, and splashy.bmp to a safe location.
2. Copy the contents of the "Age of Empires III" folder to your game directory. (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III) (Replace the existing files)

That's it. It's installed!

If for some reason it does not work, please read this.

Open up the ZIP file you downloaded. In there, should be a folder. Copy the contents of that folder to where Age of Empires III is installed. Age of Empires III is usually installed in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III. It will ask you to replace the existing files, click yes.

If it does not ask you to replace the existing files, then you are copying the files to the wrong location. If it does ask you to replace the excising files, and it still does not work. Then please insure that you are running the Asian Dynasties, and have the War Chiefs installed. If it still fails, try re-downloading the Mod, because it could be that your original download was corrupt.

To uninstall, delete the AI3, Art, Data, RM3, and Startup folder. Then replace them with your backups. You made a backup right?

Playability: 3
This mod was OK, and that is all I will say,I tried to play my campaigns, my Black family estate on the act 2 of fire and shadow changed to the Aztecs, and my aztec villagers were building Iroquois war huts instead of aztec ones in the campaign. Apart from this, which I think is quite a big issue, it was alright.

Creativity: 2
The reason for the two is because you only added on to the pack, and you used other peoples mods, albeit not entirely. However, the things you did add in were ok.

Art and Sound: 4
I did like all of the art in this pack, and the sound on the entrepeneurs works well, I just had the issue of the mounted riflemen, they said nothing, but everything else was pretty good

Installation/Instructions: 4
You gave incredibly clear, easy instructions to install, and for that, I gave you a four, however it was a bit of a hassle for me to un-install, but that doesn't change the rating.
Story/Description: 3
You described clearly what this mod was, this is what I like to see, and you clearly said what it's use was.
Additional Comments:
Remember to keep up the good work, I'd like to see a few stand-alone mods from you, you have great potential.
