Qazitory's AoE3 Modifications


QazUI - User Interface mod

This modification changes what the user interface (UI) in game looks like. The basic idea behind this modification is that the important things in the user interface are made larger and some elements have been moved. It doesn't show all information that is possible to be shown in order to keep the interface from being cluttered with various figures. Currently there are two versions of this interface available, shown below in screenshots.

This UI can be used in both minimized and maximized mode. In the minimized mode there are a little less unit statistics shown, whereas in maximized mode all statistics apart from explorer crackshot/sharpshoot ability stats are visible.


Standard version

Minimized UI overview for Europeans
Maximized UI overview for Europeans

Home City view - No more choosing the wrong deck :)

The package contains a readme file with installation and uninstallation instructions.

Download:
QazUI Standard Version for TWC, version 1.01, dated 18.1.2007
QazUI Standard Version for TAD, version 1.00, dated 31.10.2007


Cheese version

Version 1.01 - 18th of January 2007

The only difference between the standard version and this is the placement of the unit training queue. Some hardcore players, such as [hope]mRcheese after whom this version is named, prefer to have the unit training queue just above the UI, even if it blocks the messages the game displays. Messages, which tell e.g. the player not having enough resources to train a unit, can be seen only partially, depending on how full the training queue is.

QazUI is based on Ensemble Studios' user interface and in some parts I've modified Ekanta's code with his permission. You can download his UI from here. Another popular UI modification is Xentelian's UI, available from here.
