Our Mod Picks for 2016: http://aow.triumph.net/the-2016-essential-aow3-mod-spotlight/December 22, 2016 at 17:27 #249390
Thanks for the news and the highlight on mods!
A poll on the best mods was just launched and people interested by the best mods could also have a look at it: http://aow.triumph.net/forums/topic/poll-what-are-the-best-mods-according-to-you/ (and the direct poll: https://www.the-battlefield.com/aow3/index.php?page=bf_poll&pollnumber=16)
Der Mentat and Eomolch did great jobs with their mods, spent (hundreds of?) hours on them, polished them and refresh the AoW3 experience completely, it’s great that their mods are in the list.
For the Datel’s heroes mod, I’m quite surprised. They are several mods which add heroes and I don’t feel that one is the best. The Triumphant Heroes one (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=519469975) seems better for instance.
For game balance, I am biased but I feel it’s a shame the devs do not mention the PBEM and Single Player Balance Mod (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=661597466) which cater both to PBEM and to single players, has been refined over months (it’s in its v1.18 now) through feedback by more than 20 experienced players with a community-based approach (changes are proposed by and debated with everyone), communicates clearly with illustrated news at each new release, etc.
The live MP mod caters to a much smaller community (illustrated by its 144 subscribers vs 416 for the PBEM and Single Player one). It’s a great mod but it won’t help the big majority of AoW3 players which are single players.
And last but not least, the best mod ever (according to people polled and to number of subscribers) is missing from your list: Racial Unit Reskin by Tibbles: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=519678240

Tibbles has made some of the best mods – we’ve highlighted them before. This list is about newer mods for 2016 – We want to call them out as they aren’t at the top of the Steam Workshop popularity lists.
The PBEM and Single Player Balance Mod *does* look very interesting – we’ll highlight it at a later stage!December 23, 2016 at 10:01 #249396
Thanks, and merry Xmas! 🙂December 23, 2016 at 22:34 #249399
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to AoW3 players and Triumph Studios.
The mods I have played are fantastic. Some of the character models fit right in with the original models. I don’t have any favorites yet, but I am looking forward to the community expansion. I do suggest that mods be grouped together. Combining multiple mods into 1. It is easy for me to subscribe to them, but many newer players prefer skipping mods because they cant navigate the workshop.December 24, 2016 at 01:25 #249403
Happy holidays guys. 🙂December 24, 2016 at 06:54 #249406
Happy holidays and best wishes to you guys. Keep up your way oft conduct in the coming Years and and you’ll have quite the fanbase 😀December 24, 2016 at 10:10 #249407
Merry Christmas everyone.December 24, 2016 at 13:40 #249409
Best wishes all – keep these mods coming next year 🙂February 22, 2017 at 11:32 #250579
To complement the list of essential mods of 2016 compiled by Triumph, a poll was run among all AoW3 players to choose the best AoW3 mods of all time. You can find the results (illustrated with descriptions and screenshots from the mods) in the article on the-Battlefield.com/aow3, the community website for AoW3: https://www.the-battlefield.com/aow3/index.php?page=commnews&eingabenewsid=58
Short extract: “The must-haves are Racial Class Unit Reskin from Tibbles, the Racial Heritage Mod from Eomolch and the PBEM and Single Player Balance Mod from Zaskow and Hiliadan. These mods bring beautiful new graphics for existing units, new units for each race and more fun & balance for the game.”March 31, 2017 at 23:47 #251428
Its finally April 1st 2017. I hope we will hear some news about Triumph’s secret project soon 🙂April 7, 2017 at 19:59 #251622
Is there any place to get any of these mods other than Steam? Not all of us use Steam or are willing to use Steam, no matter how good the mods look.April 8, 2017 at 03:18 #251631
Yes you use this site http://steamworkshopdownloader.com/ to download the mods from Steam, then put the .taf into your \My Games\AoW3\UserContent folder.April 8, 2017 at 19:43 #251656
Thank you so much, Hiliadan! That was just what I needed!April 16, 2017 at 15:11 #251947
As a GOG client, I feel really sad about all those mods… Moders, Nexus is waiting for your uploads!April 16, 2017 at 17:56 #251950

That site makes all mods accessible to GoG users, no need to go to Nexus or anywhere else.April 16, 2017 at 22:18 #251957
