Game Version: AoE3+TWC+TAD
Screenshot:
Note: After downloading an updated version of this patch, uninstall your previous one, and reinstall the new one - including reinstalling the files from the "Goes to Program Files" folder.

Update (January 18th, 2013), 1.3z2w

- Dopplesoldners have 230 HP, 20 attack

- Tilly's Discipline brought back to original

- Made improvements to the AI; they now train up to just 90 villagers lategame (Imperial), 85 villagers in Industrial, 80 Villagers in Fortress, 45 in Colonial.

- AI has now direct civ-specific cards which significantly boost their performance. Germany now builds correct units, fewer mercenaries, has many more upgrade cards for Uhlans, and tries to build a more balanced military.

- Corsolet now gives just +20% HP, +25% Armor to Muskets, +20% HP for Pikemen and Halberdiers, -5% for these units

- Cavalry with 6.875 speed brought back to original 6.75 speed.

- Lancers have 6.60 speed, 22 siege attack, 22 attack, 2.75x against Infantry (instead of 24 attack)

- Caballeros gives 0.90x bonus against Infantry (instead of 0.85x)

- Oprichniks have 22 attack, 2.75x against Villagers, 1.83x against AbstractSiege Trooper and Artillery, 0.55x against Flail Elephants and Oprichiniks (which are siege troopers).

- Some final small balances; fixed some numbers behind cards

- AI puts their first factory on Heavy Cannons/Rockets/Great Bombards instead of gold; they need the heavy artillery production early, plus more villagers allows for more flexible use of things.

- Will add a few civ-specific crate and unit shipments to always be included and sent at the proper times by the AI.

----------------

Update (January 6th, 2013), 1.3z2v

- Added separate installation instructions for users who have Steam; the installation instructions are greatly improved in clarity.

- AI aims to train 99 villagers lategame (up from 70); if stuck in colonial, they will train up to 70 villagers (up from 45 max), if stuck in Fortress, up to 90 villagers (up from 60), if in Industrial, up to 99 villagers (up from 70), and in Imperial up to 99 villagers (up from 70). This does not include extra fishing boats, which they now build twice as many of, if possible (6 minimum, 16 max).

- Better handling for Furrier, TEAM Furrier, Spice Trade, TEAM Spice Trade added; if these are available, the AI will most likely send them as their first card.

- Fixed Chinese AI bugs; reverted back to original Chinese AI.

- Japanese AI uses a mix of Ashigaru, Yumi and Naginata Riders; testing them to use Yabusame and Samurai to support. Also, the Japanese AI has better decks, and will always ship Heavenly Kami as their first card in regular supremacy games. At the moment, however, they will not normally train Samurai as they used to, because these are not cost effective until lategame; I am still working on the Japanese AI, but training Ashigaru/Yumi/Nagainata makes them much more competitive.

- AI puts their first factory on gold instead of Heavy Cannons/Rockets/Great Bombards; their second factory goes onto cannon, rather. (This bolsters their economy significantly).

----------------

Update (January 4th, 2013), 1.3z2u

- Fixed some very important playability issues with the Russian AI, added better AI handling with Discovery and Colonial Economic Cards.

- Dopplesolders and Consulate Zweihander have their original 230 HP, original siege attack back, but now also have an additional 1.1x bonus against Halberdiers.

- Gatling guns have 2 Area (instead of 3).

- Heavy Cannons, Great Bombards, Rockets and Li'l Bombards now have 31 range (up from 30). Heavy Cannons train now in 125 seconds instead of 128.

- Working on fixing any issues with cards that say they give something they don't.

----------------

New Year Special:

Update (January 3rd, 2013), 1.3z2t

- Greatly improved all AI decks (They use lategame shipments, and a great deal of them, and I mean all civs). Also, the Iroquois and Sioux should play much better now, and Japan will use a lot better cards, which will enhance their military greatly. Be sure to play at least against lvl 25 for them to use all of their cards correctly. The AI will now also attempt to send cards at more appropriate times of the game. Also, they should have more food and coin gatherers generally speaking. Deathmatch games should play better as well (they aren't perfect, and even though I have found out how to fix their bases, I haven't applied it too much because they wouldn't build military buildings as fast, and, as a result, you could rush them quickly and win).

...

-----------------

Edit: (October 2nd), 1.3z2a: Corrected errors in the patch notes.

Greetings to all those who read!


It has been a long time since I officially announced the release of the original N3O Fan Patch 1.3, which acted as a base rubric to this version released presently. I have intended to balance the game, bring spice back into the game, without changing the way the game is played.

I have aimed to give a very Vanilla feel to the game, as well as the spice that the War Chiefs Expansion pack had when it came out. This patch lessens the starkness of the counter system by many minor changes. By limiting the effect of minor natives and certain overpowered improvements, for instance, has lead to a much better game-play. Having a reduced effect on cavalry on the battlefield - cavalry are more tactical rather than a necessity, increases the uses to actually think before committing your troops. Naval Warfare has been drastically improved, as in the previous version of the N3O FP 1.3 patch, but it is slightly tweaked since then - slightly weaker warships and slightly faster warships, plus a few new naval upgrades for the Europeans and Asians.

Full installation instructions are included in the download. Patch notes are also included with the download (these are included when you use the TAD Patch Launcher to view and launch specified patches).

To note, I liked several small art files from the well known Improvement Mod, so I have included what I liked best in the download. I only have two custom art files included in the download that I myself have made.

Also, to note, in previous versions, I have also included the Azap for the Ottoman civilization from the Napoleonic Era Mod. Link to the mod's website is here:

http://www.ne.elpea.net/forum/portal.php

The creator of the unit is Matthew Sher. Great thanks with permission to Tilanus Commodor and his gang. Now as to the Azap unit, however, I have greatly modified its statistics.


I have also included a customized, improved version of the Drauger AI, which not only has drastically improved decks but now builds civ-favourable units (with the exception of the German AI, in which there is a bug with allowing it to build civ-specific units). However, the AI (including the German AI) will now ordinarily build much more infantry as well as cavalry, with a few artillery pieces. Also, the AI does not overspam heavy artillery pieces such as heavy cannons, since a build limit has been set on these, whereupon they have been drastically improved.

***THIS AI ONLY WORKS IN USING THIS PATCH. IT USES MATERIAL ONLY AVAILABLE IN THIS PATCH, AND OTHERWISE WILL NOT GIVE YOU A PLAYABLE AI IF YOU TRY IT ON ANY OTHER PATCH THAN MINE. I HAVE ALSO INCLUDED THE ORIGINAL AI IN CASE YOU WANT TO UNINSTALL IT. FULL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED FOR THAT AS WELL.



Patch Notes

Official N3O PATCH, FP 1.3 Zelda Version 2w: continuation of Age Sanctuary Fan Patch 1.2, coded by murdilator.


FORWARD: CODER'S NOTE

This patch can be played in Single Player, LAN and Rated Online Games. I have worked a long time on this and hope that you and your friends can enjoy it as much as I do. Although I have listed many changes, they do not change the way Age of Empires III is played. The balance, moderate realism, spice, and diversity brought by this patch should give you a much better overall experience, fixing the longstanding problems with the Iroquois Lategame, the Germans and French civilizations, India, the Aztecs, the Chinese, Spanish Missionaries, Heavy Artillery, Ship Combat, and much more. Enjoy!

Installation Note: This Patch can only be run on v.18 of the TAD Patch Launcher.

Abstract note to Scenario Designers: Since I have changed the Iroquois Infantry cards to just affect Tomahawks, Aenna, Forest Prowlers and Iroquois Warchief (instead of all infantry), I have added three HC techs, SCENInfantry+5%Combat, HCSCENInfantry+5%Damage, and HCSCENInfantry+5%HP, that affect Infantry by +5%, designed specifically for Colesseum-type games.

All Consulate Techs and Brigade Shipments can now be affected by Enlist Gurkhas Tech (This is receiving +3 Gurkhas with every Consulate Tech, for India once Royal Green Jackets shipment has been sent). In previous patches, it only affected Consulate allies that India could ally with ingame. This has been changed to help scenario designers with custom Consulate Allies.


MISCELLANEOUS (non-patch related, really)

Church Wagon now builds a Church only 2.0x the speed instead of 3.0x the speed.

Sacred Field Wagon now builds a Sacred Field 2.0x the speed (up from 1.0x).

For the Asians, the Native Embassy Travois now looks A LOT nicer. This was unsuiting to the Asian architecture, so I made a duplicate unit, but plugged in Asian art files. It also has proper audio. Enjoy!

New Unit added into the Scenario Editor: Fusilier. The Fusilier has been adapted from the Napoleonic Era MOD, but has been rebalanced and uses already ingame art files. Fusiliers are first available in the Fortress Age, and auto-upgrade to Veteran Status. Unit Stats: 80 food, 50 coin, 35 train points, 180 Hitpoints, 0.10 hand armor, 4.0 speed, 29 ranged attack, 14 Range, 18 LOS, 1.1x against Cavalry and Hand Infantry, 16 hand attack, 3x against cavalry in hand mode, 2.4x against light infantry in hand mode, 24 siege attack. Has audio for all European civs except the Ottomans. Veteran status auto-upgrades for Fortress, and Fusiliers have Guard and Imperial upgrades.

Carronade Frigate added into Scenario Editor units. It is a Short-ranged warship armed with devastating cannons, and has audio.

20lb Unicorn Mortar and 5lb Howitzer added into Scenario Editor units. They have long range, minimum range and slow rate of fire, but are devastating against Infantry, Cavalry and buildings.

V1 Rocket Launcher added into Scenario Editor units. Launches V1s for great effect. NOTE: This unit does have a minimum range.

---------------

Again, Enjoy the Patch!

mandosrex wow... that's a lot to read...

I've worked two years trying to balance AOE3, and my first upload had several faults. I, however, am not great at art files and just beginning :). I had most of my suggestions from others, such as friends who played the game earlier (one said I should make ships slower and not pivot so much), and another person said that ships shouldn't be able to overlap one another. I had a personal taste to make the Ironclad a fun ship, for instance. I took suggestions from different players and many unanswered posts that I remembered reading on Age community forums or at my stay at Age Sanctuary, and tested them. I had some ideas of my own, but what I would say is that most of the ideas I took from other people and their suggestions. I, sure, deserve some credit for gathering them together, but the real credit goes to the great support given by the community and those people in my clan.

I think its always good to look at other people's work to study them and find new ideas. I would never want to plagiarize anything of course, always giving the proper credit, but sometimes ideas like "Civilized Government" and "Colonial Goverment" do sound alike, do they not :D? I learned a lot from your mod that I could not have learned elsewhere. I must give you much thanks for all of this, and your willingness to cooperate with others' suggestions.

I also looked at things like Napoleonic Era, remembering ideas like making the Ironclad tech cost 2 Shipments and 2000 coin, for instance, as I remembered that they had techs at the university that simply costed homecity shipments. But, even as simple as editing the Protoy and Techtreey files, I am absolutely a noob at modding otherwise. I would have no clue how to modify villagers to gather fish, etc., though perhaps I could find it out after a couple weeks. But I would be more pragmatic and look how you did it first :D.

Anyways, thanks for the comments! I'm sorry if previously gave a criticism on your mod, I meant it only for improving it! And if you like, feel free to add things from my mod to your mod if you think it makes it better. Perhaps in the future we could work together on something. But I'm gonna be quite short for time when school starts, so I'd have to see first if your interested.

Could you make Chinese train Manchu horse archers in their temple? Because you have make Manchu bombat card increase the hitpoints and attack of this unit, but actually Chinese can get this units easily.
Khtugg Wow, looks very impressive, I will try it out!

I have a question, murdilator, about the Mahout elephants. Do you think it's possible to make them stomp and gore like the monk's elephant? I allways though Big Huge Games missed the target with the Mahout Elephant's only attack was from the rider on it's back...
Sunthunder Does this work for LAN, You have posted that it works for EOA online but did not specify LAN, I have installed the mod on two computers(running two differant copies of the game) all same version of base game Expansion packs and mod. But I still get a CRC mismatch error when attempting to play lan. Any Help?

Hey there!

1) About Manchu Horse Archers: I simply boosted them because they belonged to China, but the only way of adding them logically would be by letting the Chinese Monastery Compunction Card (which enables Iron Troops) also allow the trainability of Manchus. However, I tell you that this process is actually quite simple if you just want to modify the game yourself. If you want to modify it, go to


My Documents/My Games/Age of Empires III/Fan Patches/N3O Patch FP 1.3z2/Data

Where you will see Protoy and Techtreey files.
I can't give detailed instruction here, but you can ask further questions on the forums. You can just check in the coding and learn by first Backing up your original file, and testing with a new one.

-----------

2) Yes, it is possible to add a stomp ability to Mahouts. This would require a modification of a tactics file, or me changing the Mahout's tactics to the Brahmins (doable in the Protoy), but it could also be much more complicated than that. I personally would think that it would make them OP, but I agree the the animation would be cooler if the Mahout actually attacked with its head like it does in trample mode, instead of just the rider attacking.

-----------

3) About the installation/compatability problems: Yes, this works for LAN. I play my mod on LAN with my Dad and it works fine. But the installation may be a little tricky. First off, this is what I suggest.

a) CRC mismatch here most likely means that just 1 file is wrong, causing the inability to play. Check and see if there are any differences in the Patch notes. If there are any, then follow the instructions for the latest version. Having different Art files and Sound files do not cause CRC Mismatch (unless the Custom Art files can't be found in the game already; I have no foreign art files included in that way). Having different AI will most likely cause a CRC. Normally then, it would be best to download the current version FP from here, and copy and paste the New Files into the Fan Patches folder:

My Documents/My Games/Age of Empires III/Fan Patches/N3O Patch FP 1.3z2/Data


If you are completely lost and it doesn't work. Try reinstalling it thus: Launch your game versions back to RE 1.03. Follow the uninstallation instructions about deleting the following files in Program Files:

My Computer/Local Disk/Program Files(x86)/Age of Empires III/Data

Files/folders to delete:

"Tactics" (folder)
"civs"
"homecitybritish"
"homecitydutch"
"homecityfrench"
"homecitygerman"
"homecityindians"
"homecityottomans"
"homecityportuguese"
"homecityrussians"
"homecityspanish"
"homecityxpiroquois"
"politiciandata"
"civs"
"politician data"


b) Then delete the folder

My Documents/My Games/Age of Empires III/Fan Patches/N3O Patch FP 1.3z2/


c) Then download and install the latest version on both computers. Carefully follow the instructions to make sure that everything is correct.



This is all I can say for now. I hope this helped you some!

bizso09 This is great, but I was wondering that with so many changes that you have made, how do you know that the game is still balanced and fun to play?

I know that the original version is unbalanced at points, but still Microsoft and Ensemble had tons of statistics and play testing time available in order to make it as balanced as possible. In my view, that's the only way you can ensure the game is fun to play. Since I doubt you had access to a database of thousands of games played and did play testing with hundreds of people, these changes seem quite significant and based on hunches. I mean balancing a game is a near impossible task for one person alone without any hard data to support the changes.

Just wondering...
dietermoreno I don't like it. You have made minimal changes in unit stats that are classical nerfs, you have nerfed upgrade techs, you have removed the iron clad from being trained from the consulate, and you have removed the iron clad from being sent from revolution homecity EVEN WHEN IRON CLAD IS UNIQUE BENEFIT OF REVOLTING.

All I can see your patch doing is helping musketeer spammers and hurting boomers who like to build real armies late game.

You make the game play even worse than the unmodded TAD. You are making TAD look like vanilla with native civs and asian civs. You have successfully "vanillaed" TAD, if that was your goal.

"Vanillanizing" the game was a huge part of my goal. Or I would rather say I made it like original Warchiefs.

On Creativity: I would argue that this patch is quite creative, because it employs various suggestions from across the community while trying not to change the way the game is played. I apologize if you experienced differently then some of the others here. By no means had I any intention of ruining anyone's fun.

On Playability:

If you played against the AI, I made them build musketeers more often than other units, so I'm sorry if you met a spam of these and didn't like it. They suck with Hand Infantry, and are much better with Ranged Infantry, though I gave Spain and some other civs more hand infantry/hand cavalry based armies. I have tried to make civs build the units they like lategame, in order to make them more treaty-friendly. They do not know how to use special techs yet, like Missionary Unction. I eventually wished to create a separate No-Rush AI.

If you want a challenge, try fighting two Expert AI's on Deathmatch, giving them 30% handicap. Its easy to lose then.

Also: If you liked the AI, but not the patch, I have a version of the AI uploaded in the Miscellaneous files section which is compatible with regular TAD. I hope that you may enjoy this at least :).


Now about the comments that you did make, I can actually agree with some of them. Musketeer battles are a bit too prevalent. I had hoped to fix this with the musketeer changes present. However, I had this musketeer change mostly from expert supremacy players who played the game. I also wanted Musketeers to be able to beat ranged cavalry. So I gave them lessened attack (experts suggestion), 1.1x against Cavalry and Hand Infantry and gave them 1 more range in Industrial. Also, Musketeers themselves (European ones) are a bit overpowering in earlier versions of the game. (were with 23 damage earlier, but lowered to 21 with 1.1x against Cavalry and Hand Infantry, 1.1x against Mantlet units), so I could just take +1 range away in Industrial Age. I have thought of removing musketeers from Germany in the next version.

However, I could also argue that Musketeers have been made better against the units they are supposed to counter (although their game design was to be decent against every unit) and make them a bit worse against Skirmishers and cannons. People will prefer rushing with Pikemen more often now.


Skirmishers - these went hand in hand with the musketeer changes. Do you want me to make them do 3.0x against Heavy Infantry again? This makes Skirmishers too prevalent, though its quite balanced when they have 0.75x against Cavalry. I made it 0.875x against Cavalry because I didn't want cavalry to decide Rush Games: Rush games have always been decided by hand infantry or ranged infantry rushes. I intend that it remains that way. To counter this, Cavalry are cheaper and train faster. Minutemen and Outposts are the counter to rush, not anything else.

What of all the good balances all-around, the ones that help turtling and booming?

What civs do you normally play? Have you tried India lategame, the Iroquois, the Aztecs, or do you just play the Europeans? Do you play Russia where you now must use tactics? My scenarios and patch do not usually impress at first sight; be willing to try different civs several times, because I've added great depth to the game.

What about Grenadiers, Chakrams? What about Heavy Cannons, Rockets and Bombards? What about Elephants? What about Mercenaries? What about Banks? What about Rajputs, Rodeleros - do you like them? What about Ranged Cavalry doing more hand damage? What about Warship combat (I have intended to make Warships a bit less lengthy)? What about improved church upgrades (I admit adding techs to the game may be problematic because people do not like change). What about French Thoroughbreds? (No more ridiculous cavalry spamming), what about Germany's "Tilly's Discipline" Tech, and Wallenstein's Contracts? These are just a few changes mentioned.


Do you play treaty or supremacy regularly? Though I balanced many small things in Supremacy, I balanced more for Treaty and Deathmatch, and I brought many things back to the original.

I admit about Howitzers, I've thought about getting them back to normal, plus I've thought of giving back Russia is Fort Spam a bit with three forts, to give back a more TAD feel to the game. I may also remove Experimental Howitzers from the game. They change the game-play a bit too much, though they are a fun addition. I am definitely for fixing all kinds of faulty changes: many of the changes themselves were a bit iffy, and I could change those back.

I would like to change Schooners back to normal as well (-60% cost for fishing boats).


I would like more comments about improving this patch. However, I think if you rating was given because I forbade Ironclads to the Asians at the Portuguese Consulate, I think that is quite hard.* Also, Revolution people can get Ironclads, but I see you think that having a price of 800 coin to buy one is steep, and it is. Though I like your comments, I do feel a little like you have given few specific suggestions as to why you thought it wrong. You do say I give some little amount of balancing here and there, "classic nerfs," but I have spent two years balancing this game. In other words, I am not a noob, but I am willing to take criticism that you offer me.

*Remember that Ironclads were relatively new technology since 1863 and the Europeans would never let the Asians have that technology, lest the Asians rebell effectively and destroy European sea-power, which was the only real advantage the Europeans had over the Asian Dynasties. Its then unrealistic that the Europeans would send one for Intervention. Besides, they are a bit OP in my version, so I had to find a creative way of removing them. I could add them back and it was a hard decision to make myself.

To conclude my reply, I am more than happy to see an honest person give their time to give a rating, and I am happy with the constructive criticism that you have given me. I assure you that I will improve this, and I hope you will give it another shot, because it really contains depth.


God Bless!
