Get unlimited resources
Have unlimited resources It is certainly something that all players in Age of Empires 3 want, because it will give you much more possibilities in the game. You won't have too much trouble performing the actions you want. There is a way to be able to have unlimited resources in the game, which can be the difference that makes you rise as a winner in it.
To be able to do this, you have to go to the game directory on your computer, where you then have to look for the Data folder. You will have to unlock its read-only properties, to be able to edit in it. In this folder we find with the file called "proto.xml", which is the one we need, the one that interests us. So you have to locate the same in that folder.
Then, we look for the sections «CrateOf» -CrateOfFood, CrateOfCoin, etc what's in it. In these sections we are going to have to change the "InitialResourceCount" value of each one of them, so that we can have those unlimited resources in Age of Empires 3. They are not complex steps and can make a huge difference.
Infinite units in Age of Empires 3
Another aspect that many users will be interested in is being able to have more units, but without involving a population cost. This is something possible in the game, which we are going to have to carry out by following a series of steps similar to those we have shown you in the previous section.
Therefore, we will have to go to the Data Folder in the main directory of the game. Inside this folder we will have to find the file named proto.xml, which is important to be available for editing, so it is likely that we have had to make changes to its properties to do so, otherwise it will not be possible to do this.
In this file we find a line called «populationcount». In this line we find a figure, which we will be able to change. So in this way we can have a huge army in Age of Empires 3, which is undoubtedly an aspect that will interest all users in the game. Although it is important to keep in mind that the CPU will also have this advantage when making this change.
In the game we can also use this option in Age of Empires 3. It is a way of have invincible units on our account in the well-known game. The steps that we are going to follow in this case are similar to those that we have carried out in the previous two sections. The recommendation is to make a backup before editing something, so as not to lose anything.
We go to the main directory of the game, where we look for the Data folder. This folder is where the proto.xml file is, which is where we will have to make modifications. In this file you have to look for the header of a unit in the file, such as Explorer. Below the line that begins with Flag, we will have to insert two new lines:
´Flag´ Invulnerable ´ / Flag´
´Flag´DoNotDieAtZeroHitpoints´ / Flag´
Thanks to them we can have these invincible units, that will allow us to advance in Age of Empires 3 in a really simple way. You can repeat this process in the units you want, so you can repeat this action several times without any problem.
The Lakots or Lakotas are allies in Age of Empires 3, which you will be able to modify, so that you have an infinite amount of them. The steps to follow to achieve this do not change much compared to the two previous sections, so it is a simple method to achieve it in our account.
Therefore, we have to go to the main directory of the game, where to look for the Data folder. Inside it is where we find the file called proto.xml, which we will have to open, as long as we have the necessary permissions, apart from reading. In this file we will have to search for lakot, to access the section where we find them. We will see that we get a section called Lakota .
We must then descend until we reach a box that tells us: 13 , where the number can be different from 13. In any case, we can change that figure and put the one we want. So, when we enter Age of Empires again, we will be able to form an alliance with these Lakotas, so that we will be able to build the number of units that we have established in the archive.
