Note 1): At time of writing, after activating a UI mod, AOE2DE needs to be restarted for it to be loaded correctly.

  • Mapsize is 40% bigger than vanilla.

Enjoy!

Ramblings: Made this primarily for myself but some others are enjoying it too already. The reasoning behind merging the resources and the map into a single panel was that I keep looking at my res in-game but forget to check the mini-map regularly to see what’s going on in game… this way, my eyes are already there, so I pick up the action on the map easier now.
