Alexander I for Russians

Author File Description
File Details
Game Version: TAD
#####"Alexander I for Russians", an AoE3 TAD mod by Harmata#####

This mod replaces Ivan IV The Terrible with Alexander I The Blessed, and Oprichniks with Razboyniks. This is a purely cosmetic mod, no
changes were made to unit characteristics or game mechanics.

1.Make backups of the following files:
unithelpstrings.xlm (data folder)
stringtabley.xml (data folder)
chatsets.xml (AI3 folder)
2. Unpack RAR into your AoE3: TAD folder, confirm all rewrites.

After reinstalling the AoE3 again, i realized that Ivan the Terrible looks ridiculously out of place in this game. He had no relation to Colonization and Industrial Age.

So i decided to make a mod that will replace Ivan with someone more appropriate. Alexander I The Blessed was chosen. He fought with Napoleon and read Voltaire. Perfect.
I had some problems with choosing a replacement for Oprichniks, didn't know how to justify unit's high damage against buildings and villagers, but then recalled the razboyniki, Russian bandits. Oprichnik's model in the game even looks quite criminal.

1. Ivan IV is replaced with Alexander I: his skirmish avatar and description, his History entry and big portrait there. All new images were modified to look like rest of the portraits in the game.
2. Since Oprichniks were Ivan's playthings, they were replaced with Razboyniks, who hate villagers just as much. Their tooltip was modified with the words "heavy cavalry", they received their History entry, and have unique names for every upgrade:

*Known Razboynik (Veteran)
*Old Guard Razboynik (Guard)
*Baron Razboynik (Elite)
*Fabled Razboynik (Imperial)

Russian-speaking people should get the joke. Their Imperial upgrade text was also changed.

3. All Ivan IV chat sound messages were removed, and some text messages were modified to better fit the new personality.
