Age of Empires III：Second Opium War-PART1, Battle of Taku Forts.
This scenario is made by 宵月之狂 who has made the second battle scenario of this in Feb 2010.
History introduction about the scenario:
China has poor diplomatic relations with Great Britain.
Unfortunately, the arrow incident occurs; this gives the British reason to punish China and ask for mroe trading ports and about the legalization of opium. The war breaks out in 1857 and the anglo-French armies successfully occupy Canton.
Now they have to invade The Taku Forts. The anglo-French armies attack so suddenly in 1860 that Chinese government has a little time to prepare the battle. As a Commander under Emperor Xianfeng, would you be able to defend the Taku Fort and restore the honor of China back again?
In this game, there are two teams to choose from and you may play as one side. There are:
Qing Dynasty - China : Player1 and player2 choose, difficulity is 4 stars(●●●●○○).
The United Kingdom, France : Player3 and player4 can choose both as one choice, difficulity is 3 stars(●●●○○○).
*1.) You need AoE3 and TAD to play this scenario.
*2.) While setting some options for Room-Hosting, you shall set P5 and P6 as computer players, otherwise, the game won't work very well, especially the story. We're not sure how the game would look like. The setting should be like this: P5 for Kanxi, P6 for Napoleon.
*3.) Player1 and player2 must use China, or the game will not work any longer! P3 and P4 can choose British or French (but no the other countries).
4.) It's much more fun to play on ESO than in Single-Player.
5.) The scenario can support 4 players at most. 1v1 or 2v2 are all possible to play.
Here is a simple way to show you how to set:
Player1===China (Qing Dynasty)===human players
Player2===China (Qing Dynasty)===human players
Player3===U.K. , or France===human players
Player4===U.K. , or France===human players
Player5===China (Kanxi)===computer players (must)
Player6===France (Napoleon)===computer players (must)
