Absolutely outsdanding!I have yoused this editor mod for several months and I'm still amezed!

jml Macintosh users:

And it's working for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
'working right now on a sort of Rey'sk 4 Mac guide.
And it looks like a good 5 rate again from the little I already saw... :-)
SgtSlaughter Upon installing, the setup gave me two errors. The first being "Setup was unable to open typetest.xml" and then "Setup is unable to install 1 file(s). CRC is unable."

Fix this by opening C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III\trigger\ then right-click on typetext.xml and select properties. Uncheck Read-only and hit Ok. Run the installer.

Hope I helped someone out there.

Macintosh users:

This piece of art works for us as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's not as sharp as the AoM one, but AoE3 isn't either, so...
Thank you Mister Reyk, I wouldn't enjoy designing without your magic tools!
5 is the least I could do, but it should have been a 25... or even 26!

I am giving this a 5 because I am a scenario designer and without this I wouldn't be able to make the scenarios of my dreams! This is by far the best thing you can download in this section. Well Done Reyk!

Additional Comments:

Great, great addition to the AoE3 Editor. Without this AoE3 Scenario making/Map designing would be far far more difficult.

Great Job!

Is the “Change Difficulty” effect included with your editor?

I was told by Paragon that this effect is not listed in your editor.

How can I add this effect to my scenario?

Right now, the difficulty for my scenarios always changes back to "Moderate".

PureAlbino This is a great enhancement to the editor and is a must-have addition to AOE3 if you enjoy scenario designing.

Truly Amazing! This is a very useful and great program for adding all those little yet important touches that really make a scenario a good one.

Additional Comments:

My favorite one is the camera pitch because I love to make crazy camera angles with it :)
