Hey,

So I got Aoe3 off of Steam, and was wondering if this mod could be installed on it. If anyone knows how that might work that would be great, thanks.

I believe it should work, yes. Unless I'm much mistaken, it's a simple matter of changing the install directory from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III" to "C:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\age of empires iii" or something like that. I don't know exactly what the last folder is called as I don't have a Steam version myself, but it should be easy enough to find within the "common" folder.

I could not have wished for a better example of the confusion caused by the forcible advertisement of modloaders to people who only want to know the answer to a simple question. I doubt aias will have even the slightest clue whose lead to follow now, and with that I rest my case.

This isn't exactly a holy war, gentlemen, so let's please think about the people who ask these questions rather than contemplating nothing but the success of your own modloader.

NE works with steam. As the only official NE person here, I tell you: It works exactly the way peugeot407 told.

The correct install directory would be:
Code:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Age of Empires 3\bin\


Fortunately with Steam, you don't really need to make a backup of the original AoE3 (as you can just re-download it again). If you want to save time at switching between NE and AoE3, it is advisable to do that still. Wink
