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.

no thats not normal, for a level 16hc it should be around the 260000 mark. i cant think what you you could have done wrong, as your's is the only case i heard of. the only other thing is to start a new hc and see if thats ok, mabe someone else has this problem and might be able to throw more light on this.

good luck

postmanplod This mod represents a great advance in gameplay, and thanks and congratulations should go to ALL of those involved in creating the small parts, so well put together by centeurie.

One small point though. For anyone playing as French, the settlers still count against the Pop. I guess that is because the French settlers have some sort of attack attached to them. Not a complaint at all, just an observation, in case anyone fancies playing French.

As requested, here is my my review. I didn't write one earlier as I don't tend to download a great deal of stuff here and didn't have much of a benchmark to go on.

I awarded it 5 because I can not think of anything else - at this time - that I would like to see included.

Centeurie included 17 updates in his description and having played three skirmishes so far (two as British one as French), I will comment on the ones that I have noticed most about.

1. The new GUI takes a little getting used to, but nowhere near as much as, say, changing from AOE2 to AOE3. There is extra, useful, information available, but I still need to get used to the idea that the idle settlers show up at the top of the screen now and stop worrying about those 10 settlers gathering coin. Another thing to get used to is the Home City icon/flag being smaller. These things will, I am sure, come with time and experience.

2,3 & 6 These are evidently there, but I haven't used them.

9. The forty card pack is nice, though you are still limited to ten per age, which adds an interesting dimension to choosing new ones.

10 & 16 These are evident in gameplay, and for those who like to defend and build a high tech, formidable, siege army (I believe it is called Turtling) it is very useful. Note my comments about French settlers above.

14. I had forgotten about this one, but thinking about it I have been repairing walls that previously I would have been rebuilding.

17. This is my Wife's favourite, as that horn was driving her wild, even when she was in the next room.

Additional Comments:

I hope that my review was useful, but as I say, I don't have much of a benchmark to work with and am not too sure what others will expect. I like it though, and am pleased with it. Thanks to all involved.
DrIstvaan Wow, that was quite a nice and detailed review! Congrats go to you for it!
aoe3guy hi will u plzz plz plz give me instructions on what to do to make this mod work
File Author
hi aoe3guy

please explain whats not working? is not of it working??is only some of it working??you need to give me a little more to go on, then ill guide you through the installation.

aoe3guy well it isnt working at all
DrIstvaan I assume you don't know what to do. Well, read the file "Read First". Then, as it says, read all the folders' readmes. But it isn't such a great deal.
The contents of the folders go as follows. (Abbreviations: GAME: your game folder (default C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires 3); MG: My Documents\My Games\Age of Empires 3)
Art1, Art2 -> GAME\Art\UI
Data ->GAME\Data (Note: it's *essential* to backup this first!)
Maps ->MG\RM
Sound ->GAME\Sound
User cfg ->MG\Startup
That's it!
