Hey, I've recently gone back to playing this game after a year or so absence and have decided for the first time to change things up and make things interesting with some game modifications. I have found that ronheaven website. I've tried to download some modifications, but they don't appear in the game and I can't find directions on how to do so. Is there a certain folder I need to put them in or a certain procedure to follow? If you know how to properly install modifications, please help. Thanks.
Oh sorry. No, your original post made sense. I've just not had access to my computer recently since something was not working. Thanks so much for the response and information though. Can't wait to try it! Hopefully it works :)
Unfortunately, I am still having problems. I could not find a mod file amongst the RON files, so I created one and titled in "Mods". Is this correct? I then downloaded the modifications to that file, but when I load the game, I don't see the modifications. In the Quick Battle mode, in the area where you set up the conditions for gameplay (map size, map type, etc.) it won't let me select anything under the Games Modifications tab as if nothing is there. Am I doing something wrong?
Oh, some types of files cannot be accessed by merely putting them into the "mods" section. The best examples of this include re-skinned units.
In most cases, if it's something that's so complex that it won't work in the mods folder, you must literally make changes to the root files in "data" or "art" (either in Rise of Nations\ or in the Thrones and Patriots\ folders).
BEFORE YOU DO THIS, MAKE SURE YOU BACK THOSE FILES UP. I usually like to make a new folder in the "data" or "art" directories called "Originals" and then just copy and paste the files there.
So, for example, if I have a re-skinned Shock Trooper (to look like a Chinese Communist soldier), I'll have to back up the "ShockTrooper.tga" file in "art", and then make changes to the working version.

Oh shoot. If that is the case, I may have to unfortunately give up because I have no idea how to do all of that. I would probably screw the whole game up, haha. Oh well I guess. Thanks man for all of the help though. It was much appreciated.
