This upload unlocks the Black's Mercenaries Civilization.
Copy "homecitySPCAct2" and "civs" files into:
Steam - Steam apps - common - Age of Empires 3 - bin - data
After your done with creating your new homecity, rename or remove the "civs.xml" file
from your "data" folder. This will allow you to continue online.
Be sure to run VANILLA AOE3 first, then try out the expansions.
It wont create the HC and new civ otherwise!
I recommend you play on War Chiefs or Asian Dynasties.
Idea based on my own ideas and civs.xml.xmb taken from iamchanceless' "Special Civs on ESO" Mod.
No new cards added.
This Civilization can only go to Colonial, Fortress and Industrial Age, and Guard Upgrades are available.
Civilization does not have Capitols enabled.
The homecitySPCAct2 should allow you use Black's Mercenaries on single player scenarios and make custom decks. (A bug because the homecity.xml file was not included in the data.bar files, but rather in Campaign Blood Ice Steel folder).
Very good like all the other civs. The only thing I would change would be adding a card to build a saloon? or a monastery? The cards and the church improvement card involve making mercenaries stronger, but this civ has no access to create them other than the other HC cards. Other than that, great civ.
