centeurie's combined mod

Author File Description
centurie hi this is a mod made up of stripped down version of many other mods. all combined together to make one super mod, iv seen many people talk about how much they would like a combined mod of all the best ideas,and a few people said it could not be done, well iv done it and it works a treat. ill like to thank the people who first made some of these mods and hope they didn't mind me stripping them to bits to make this one super mod.
This is the complete list of changes that are in this mod

1/ new look control panel (GUI) adds extra icons for faster commands.
2/ added the patrol icon and command.
3/ added the guard mode icon and command.
4/ added the zoom in /out to infinity command
5/ added the rotate building while placing command.
6/ added the drummer and flag barer to the barracks.
7/ outpost build limit is now 20 instead of 7
8/ outposts are stronger can now see further and can shoot further but cost a little more.
9/ all civs now have a 40 card deck
10/ settlers now cost 0 population they still cost 100 food but you can build 99 for no pop count.
11/ settlers can now see further they won’t just stand around doing nothing after finishing that last deer, but will go to the next heard within range.
12/ infantry can now see further but shooting range is still the same. all civs.
13/ artillery can now see a lot further and shoot further this applies to all civs.
14/ fences and walls are a lot stronger, great if you like to turtle.
15/ all ranged infantry automatically stand ground while shooting.
16/ all artillery from all civs now cost half in pop than they did, so in affect you now can have twice as much.
17/ new attack sound has been added it’s a lot quieter .


please make sure that you uncheck the minimize
ui box under your aoe3 game settings before starting a new game with this mod.the new control panel will automaticly minimize when the game starts.not doing this will result in corrupt images

these changes in effect will give you an approx population limit of between 350-400.
Remember settlers cost no pop and all civs arty cost half as much pop.


With all these changes it is better to play this mod on the large to very big 10x maps.
Ill be including these maps with this mod.

Centurie
PS IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU HAVE THE MINIMIZE UI OPTION
UNCHECKED IN YOUR AOE3 GAME OPTIONS BEFORE PLAYING THIS MOD, OR THE NEW FEATURES WILL NOT DISPLAY PROPERLY.

John_SJ Two things are very unclear in your installation notes.

You state in a readme file that files should be copied to art/ui/ingame. The ingame directory does not exist.

You state in a readme file that files should be copied to art/units/squad. The units/squad directories do not exist.

Should these directories be created? Are they created by the game after some initial step?

Please clarify.

hi john
please just copy the art files into your art/ui folder, for some reason i have tho's extra two files but that might because iv modded my game so much
Joash I put in everything to it's right place, but the thing (number 4 change) where you can zoom out really far, is really a hack or cheat(ES said so)is there any way I can get rid of this? and also the control panel in the lower part of the screen is so small, how can I enlarge it to it's origianal size? but otherwize it's an excellent MOD.----Good work

hi joash

to stop the zoom out , go to your my documents\my games\aoE3\startup. then open the file called user.cfg using notepad and delete all this.

limitPitch=35
maxZoom=225
normalZoom=200
minZoom=10
extraZoomPercent=0.35
zoomSpeed=0.5
zoomWheelDivisor=30.0


as for the small control panel i don't think i can change that, but to be sure please make sure you have the option called "minimize ui" unchecked in your aoe3 game options.

well good luck and thanks for your rating and your good comments.

I like the mod features that change the UI very much. I wish that ES would have given a much wider zoom range and this mod does that. The other UI features are equally useful and helpful. If this were a UI only mod I would give it a 5, no problem.

I don't like the game play chages nearly as much though. The 0 pop points for settlers is the one I have the biggest problem with. In a strategy game, everything I do should be a tradeoff, a choice to be made and balanced against other choices. Removing the population "penalty" for settlers makes (IMO) that choice too weak. Similarly, the pop changes for arty weaken that choice as well, and (this is only a hunch) I have a feeling that the AI doesn't take these changes into account that well.

Additional Comments:
Overall, I think this set of mods was a good effort. But when taken together and considering the fact that it precludes MP gaming, I can only give an ok rating rather than a great one.
DrIstvaan This mod-compilation is great, but I have a problem with it. How can I kill Drummers/Flag Bearers? I've played against 3 other civs, then I annihilated Ivan the Terrible, but he dindn't either resign or get destroyed. Can it be because there are some lots of Russian drummers on the map, or is it normal? I know with teams it is, but this game is FFA.
