Hey there @Andres487! Could you try somedthing for me?

The Home City file for Germans should be in C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Games\Age of Empires 3 DE\[0]\Savegame and the file should be called sp_German_homecity.xml. If the xml file is there, delete it and re-launch the game. This will cause the game to create a new German Home City on startup.

I hope this helps you! Let me know if you cannot find the sp_German_homecity.xml.

This has worked for users with similar issues, and I would love to hear if, for some reason, your German Home City file has been corrupted somehow.

Thanks for the report!
