Strategic Objectives: Russo-Turkish Wars

“Strategic Objectives” is a scenario that can qualify as a new game type.

It allows to capture abandon buildings (such as Forts and Barracks), and even re-capture them from the AI and vice versa. 
Captured buildings offer either economic bonus or military bonus (free units).

Players can also construct Fixed Guns anywhere on the map.

The Challenge and Give Away

From March 15th 2007 until April 6th 2007, players who beat the “Normal” or/and “Hard” versions of any one of the “Strategic Objectives” scenarios can qualify to be in a drawing to win one of 25 free prizes that are given by Ensemble Studios and by me.

Scenario versions

There are 3 main versions with different civilizations:

Ottoman VS Russia – the story version
Spanish VS British - skirmish
Germany VS Spain - skirmish

There are also 3 levels of difficulties for each version (Hard, Normal, and Easy).

Normal and Hard difficulties (for any one of these versions) will qualify for the challenge and give away.

All these 9 versions are available for both “AOE 3: Original” (Vanilla) and “AOE 3: TWC”.
That is a total of 18 scenario versions.

The main scenario with the story is called: “Strategic Objectives: Russo-Turkish Wars”. 

Installation Instructions

Please note that these scenarios don’t mod your game in any way.

Copy all the "Strat Obj…….age3scn" and “Xstrat Obj….age3Xscn” files to "My Documents/My Game/Age of Empires 3/Scenario".

The "Strat Obj……." files are for AOE 3: Original (Vanilla) and the “Xstrat Obj….” files (with leading “X”) are for AOE 3: TWC (for those who own the expansion).

There is no need to copy the “Xstrat Obj….” files (with leading “X”) if you don’t have AOE 3: TWC (expansion).

Copy the "Homecity_……XML" files to "Program Files/Microsoft Games/Age of Empires III/Campaign/Blood Ice Steel"

If you have TWC expansion, then copy the "HomecityX…….XML" files to "Program Files/Microsoft Games/Age of Empires III/Campaign/War Chief"

The home city files give you a deck with 40 cards.

The music files need to be copied to the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III\Sound folder.

Message for the Reviewers

Please review the story version scenario: “Strategic Objectives: Russo-Turkish Wars”

File names: “Strat_Obj_Turky_Russ_Normal.age3scn” (AOE 3: Vanilla), or “XStrat_Obj_Turky_Russ_Normal.age3Xscn” (AOE 3: TWC).

The other two versions are skirmish type scenarios with no story.

The “Normal” level version is the most appropriate version for average players so please try that one first. 
The “Easy” version might be too easy (it was intended for new players), and the “Hard” version is very hard to beat (it was intended for expert players).

Please keep in mind that despite the fact that the AI has more units than the human player, the human player can counter that with superior strategy and tactics.

Thank you, 

Moshe Levi
