Makhikoi Episode 4 - British vs Native Rebellions - Age of Empires 3 Custom Scenario

This is my custom scenario for game Age of Empires 3 title "Makhikoi Episode 4 - British vs Natives Rebellions". Age of Empires 3 is a Real Time Strategy game created by Ensemble Studio some 10 years ago. Age of Empires 3 is very popular RTS (real time strategy) game and I'm still playing it right now in 2018. The game have been released with two Expansion Packs. The first expansion pack is The Warchiefs. In this expansion pack, there are new Native American Tribes minor civilization. In total, there are 19 Native American Tribes settlements where we can access via custom scenario editor. My whole Makhikoi Campaign was designed with an idea to play all 19 Natives American Units in one single scenario.

In this 4th custom scenario, I have put all 19 Native Tribes settlement so we can play them all in one single scenario. Here are the custom scenario descriptions :

Diplomacy:
P1 enemies too all
P2, P3, P4, P5  are neutral each other

Description:
The Nineteen Tribes dethroned Makhikoi as their War Chiefs and exiled him to the British camp. In this fourth scenario, Makhikoi must face everything he had seen from the Nineteen Tribes. He must rely on the British to face against the Iroquois, Sioux and Aztecs, all supported by 19 Natives American Units. There will be many obstacle along the way to reach the enemies.

As with my previous scenario, this map is to enjoy the NAT units. This scenario has been designed to motivated player 1 to build all 19 trading post / settlements. When you build trading post , you'll received various rewards.



How to Win:
- Defeat all enemies
- Build 19 Natives Trade Post

How to Play:
In Single Player > Custom Scenario

In Multi Player, if you wish to records the game you may want to play this in multi player setting. Just set the players as described above. Set to Classic mode to avoid using Trade Monopoly. The computer AI will never use Trade Monopoly. Player 1, we human, should never use it also. We don't need it. (I have try to forbid Trade Monopoly but it will always enable in the game, I think this is a bug)

Single Player Home City Deck:
- Copy attached file "HomecityX_Makhikoi4.xml"  to folder "..\Age of Empires III - Complete Collection\bin\Campaign\War Chief". This is default folder that contained all homecity for Warchief Expansion Campaign. This folder location can be varied depends on where you install your Age of Empires III files.  Warning , if you failed to copy my intended files into that folder, your home city deck will be nulled.
- You can set up your own home cities by copying the whole text in your British Home City (in Savegame\sp_London_homecity.xml) and copied it into that HomecityX_Makhikoi4.xml files. Just learn the tag and set it up.

Multi Player The Home City deck:
Homecity deck already built in the scenario file when played as Multi Player.

Playing Level Recommended : 
Expert. This is the hardest episode, good luck.

If you want to change the playing level goto Scenario Editor, menu Scenario > Playtest Scenario > set player to 1 and set your desired playing level. Press CANCEL and then save the scenario.

Recommended Strategy: 
Fast Fortress

Gameplay

Starting bonus for P1 : 
1 Manor House (this is to avoid getting zero populations when played in multiplayer , a known bug)
3 Discovery Travois
Large Coin Crate and Large Food Crate
200 Experiences

Build Trade Post bonus :
3 Trade Posts = Advanced Trading Post shipment
6 Trade Posts = Native Lore Shipment
10 Trade Posts = Native Warrior Shipment
12 Trade Posts = Blood Brothers Shipment
16 Trade Posts = Native Treaty Shipment
19 Trade Posts = Rockets!

And many on the map treasures and crates!

Native Trading Post Grouping Object:

This scenario (and the other scenarios I created) use a group object. These group object named as eg. "cherokee native village.xml" and others. These files must be present in folder "..\Age of Empires III - Complete Collection\bin\RM2\groupings". In case you didn't have this, you can download it from army-of-light.blogspot.com. Put the files in that folder.

TIPS (SPOILER.....)
- This is a linear map, so build your wall to slowly gained territory
- Do not underestimated the Natives units, will all their tech, they will be strong in late game.
- Create as many trade post to get the bonus. Planned you trade post build sequence and see which settlements gives you the best support according to your strategy. The NAT units is not powerful in early game but their techs come in handy.

Please send me feedback when you played this scenario, will really appreciated it. For other Makhikoi Episodes and more please visit my blog : army-of-light.blogspot.com. I have made several scenarios with all Native American Tribes sockets in it. This scenario have been played test by me and friends for months.
