Modding - Beginner

After you've done the basis it's time to progress. These tutorials are for those that have already some basic modding knowledge for AoE3, but want to expand it nontheless. These tutorials are still rather detailed and don't go too deep into modding AoE3.

  • Writing A Proper ReadMe - by Argalius

  • First steps in modding practice - by BilboBeutlin
    We can't discuss all details within this short tour - just the most important aspects. But it will hopefully be sufficient to have a first overview. The rest is as always do-it-yourself. Exploring and understanding the data files is much more efficient than doing all steps after a guide.
