Secret Units Removed In-Game Units can be brought back via the Game Editor
AOE3 contains multiple secret units that can be unlocked in-game by just using the game editor. Using the AOE3 Editor, you can place a particular unit in the map, then choose the command ‘Replace Unit’ under ‘Objects’. You will now have a dropdown menu that will let you select Flying Purple Tapir, Monster Truck A, Learicorn, Fluffy, Lazerbear or George Crushington. Click ‘Replace Unit’ to test.
Fast Leveling in Single Player Game (Backup First!)
Look for the file sp_yourcityname_homecity.xml in the AOE3 Save Game folder in your C:\User\\My Documents\My Games\Age of Empires 3\Savegame. Back it up somewhere for safety purposes. Now open it with your Notepad or Notepad++ and search for the word . As an example, you will find something like xx. Replace xx with the number 99 and then save your file. Play a Skirmish game and you will find that you are now at level 99.
Infinite Unlock Points for Single Player Game (Backup First!)
Open the same file as noted above (sp_yourcityname_homecity.xml). Do the same steps but this time look for word . As an example, you will find something like xx. Replace xx with a massive number such as 9999 then save the file. In the game you will find that you almost have infinite number of unlock points for things you can use for your city.
Increase Game Resources (Backup First!)
Using your text editor, open and edit proto.xml. You can find this file in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Age Of Empires 3\bin\data for Steam or C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age Of Empires 3\bin\data for Retail versions. Backup the file first for safety. Make sure to uncheck the Read-Only attribute for proto.xml in properties. While the proto.xml file is open in Notepad, look for the words


CrateofFood
CrateofCoin
CrateofWood
CrateofFoodLarge
CrafteofCoinLarge
CrateofWoodLarge

Under these categories look for tags

InitialResourceCount

and change the numerical values to higher numbers. For example, if the value is 100.000, change it so it goes up to 999999.000. This is specially effective in Skirmish or Campaign modes which provides you with some initial amount of crates. These crates will produce excessive amounts of resource with the changes you made in the XML file. However, there will be a bottleneck in the transport of goods via crates so that it will take time before you enjoy receiving the resources. To expedite the process of goods transfer, search for the word Settler in proto.xml and edit the values in its tag GatherCrate. Change the numerical value to as much as 999999 and enjoy the benefits of fast transportation of massive resources asap.
Invulnerable Game Units (Backup First!)
Following the steps above, we again edit the file proto.xml. Choose an in-game unit you would like to edit. As an example we choose the unit Rodelero. Search for the group of tags labeled . Insert new lines and code below the group of tags:
    • Invulnerable
    DoNotDieAtZeroHitpoints
Next time you start your game, you got a God-like Rodelero unit!
