Any modding tutorial?

Hello there.
Because I am very new to modding Age of Empires 3 Definitive Edition (to be exact, I tried to replace some test textures, but that didn’t work, even if the game displayed that the mod was loaded), I want to know how to mod properly. So, is there anyone who could tell me what I should do to replace textures and units? (sadly, I noticed that you can’t change the 3D files…)


So, I still got no answer. So, another question, that I started to ask myself:
Is this definitive edition a flaw in terms of modding?

The path should look like
mods\local\Winded Art Mod\Art\ …
continue based on location of the file you’re replacing.

It is the first time in history that AoE3 has an officially supported modding platform, so that’s pretty good for modding.

Thanks for answering :slight_smile:.
So, the way I’ve done it before is that I compressed the files to a bar file and used the
path in there. So, is the usage of bar files for modding obsolete now?

Yes, you don’t need to put anything into bar.
