BIG Map Pack

Author File Description
Kyle Leach If you are like me, you like having some room to roam around on the map. This map pack provides all of the standard maps, but increases the size x 10. I have also increased the size of elements like forests and cliffs, so that they take up the same amount of space in proportion to the larger map size.

Please note that these maps are LARGE - 100,000 tiles to be exact. You may experience some lag if you are playing these maps online, with lots of players, or with a computer that lacks adequate gaming hardware. So try them out before starting a game with another human player. However, once you have determined that a map will run fine for your gaming situation, you can enjoy the larger map size and discover some of the new challenges that come with having more space.

HOSH I have been playing them with our group and I say that they are big is an understatement.

It gives us plonty of room to run around the map espicially if you have a mod on the game for more units and diffrent hip points. But with just the maps there are no lag, just sometimes a missspon.

We are waiting for kyle to release his mod for the game that makes some interesting changes. I hope to see it released in the near future, It throughs out the book for most of it, but is more realistic.

mbobmean So want this loaded but could not pull them up. Placed them (all files) in my RM folder, what did I do wrong?

Mean Bob Mean,

Since I do not have my gaming computer handy, I will refer you to these great installation instructions provided by Veteran map maker, RFGandalf:

To play these maps, the files must be placed in the folder: My Documents\My Games\Age of Empires 3\RM2. Please do not place them in the game's install folder - that will not work. When you start up a skirmish game in Single-player or Multiplayer, use the small blue 'Custom Map' button, which allows you to then select one of the random maps in that My Games folder from the drop-down window. The files will transfer in Multiplayer if your allies or opponents have not downloaded the files. Please do not edit the files or you will have compatability problems in Multiplayer. Please do not place these in the usual folder for the original AOE3(or vanilla AOE3) custom random maps, as the addition of the new natives and new War Chiefs terrains will cause the map to not work properly. Note there is a separate version for the original AOE3.

Hope this answers your question.
thefreak 123 can you give me a copy of this with just tupi, huron, and cree villiges on all maps?
this is a great map set and give just enough room to maneuver.
D_Dubz Will this mod still work in the current version of the game? I downloaded the mod and placed it in RM2 but when I clicked the custom maps button in skirmish mode it didn't work, I also have an RM3 folder that I tried placing it in but it was to no avail so now I'm back at square one, I really really want this map pack though :(
hockey72 Maps don't show up for me. I usually put them in RM folder, but the instructions says RM2.
murdilator That's because goofbawl RMS2 is Warchiefs expansion and RMS is Vanilla.

Try launching the original ago of empires III or put them in the right folder, k?
domedfl HI! how to install maps in Mac Os X?
