Improvement Mod version 4.9

Aaaaaaand, it's here!
The most stable, complete and bug-less version of the mod so far, is out for everyone to enjoy!

What does it bring? Tons of tweaks and bug fixes, plus, of course, some new things.

Visual changes for the Crossbowman, Longbowman, Musketeer and Coureur de Bois. Some changes to the French and Russian homecities and some roll-backs on the unique Dutch and British techs. The first upgrades for artillery units have been made a little more expensive, from 250 to 300, which still seems too cheap but I'll leave it this way for now.
Made defensive buildings a little bit more stronger, but made the Bastion tech available from the Fortress Age.

And many other things, but I hate getting into details. I do love details but I hate getting into them...

So, just re-download the mod and make sure you tell everyone else to do the same, a future update is uncertain.

Speaking of French, WSH has made a file which translates the mod in French. You can try it out, I can't because I don't know French...

Age of Empires Online

I do not know how many of you have played the new free to play AoE Online, but those who haven't, you better get your ass there right now! It's basically complete by now with more updates to come.

AoEO is your casual AoE game, build on the AoE3 engine, being a combination between the first AoE and AoM, with a bit of AoE3 in there as well, it is free to play (pay to win), playable from Steam or GFWL, if Steam says the game doesn't support your country, like in my case...

The gameplay, everybody knows it. Even the PVP is exactly the same, everybody rushing like hell, building bases around your back and other crap like that... I hate this kind of stuff, reason for why I don't play RTS games online. And when I do, I play with friends, and we play "by the book", enjoying every second, not rushing like the world is ending...

So, get it right now, and tell us what do you think about it?

Regarding the next update for the mod, it will be version 4.9, and will have many changes. Details soon.
