Hotfix 30181 is a patch in Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition, released on June 8, 2021.

General[]

  • Fixed an interpolation issue that resulted in stuttering animations (which could also have presented as poor FPS).
  • Fixed the cursor sometimes displaying the incorrect icon when gathering resources.
  • Fixed a crash when ejected from lobby due to game size.
  • Team game chat now correctly defaults to Allies and flares will no longer be shown to Everyone.

Map updates[]

Manchuria
  • Fixed a bug where the northern mines weren't spawning correctly.
  • Made team spawns slightly smaller than before.
Siberia
  • Fixed an issue where the starting hunt and berries sometimes wouldn't spawn properly.
  • Adjusted how tower and coin spawn so mine isn't too close to the Town Center and should now be the same distance from the Town Center for each player.
  • Regular map only: slightly reduced the size of team spawns.
Borneo
  • Adjusted the starting mine spawn distance in team games and FFA (mine now spawns the same distance from the Town Center for every player).
Andes - Upper
  • Tier 2 and 3 treasures spawn as intended (3 away from cliffs and 2 within cliffs).
Cascade Range
  • Adjusted constraints to improve resource spawn consistency.
Punjab
  • Reduced the number of hunts to the intended number in 1v1, consistent with original design.
  • Slight size reduction in team games.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the covered wagon to sometimes not spawn in nomad mode.
Fertile Crescent
  • Fixed TC position in 1v1 and balanced team spawns.
  • Rebalanced map resources in 1v1 for spawn consistency.
  • Fixed an issue that could result in players' second mines failing to spawn.
  • Fixed an issue that could result in the TC wagon not spawning in nomad.
Kamchatka
  • Changed starting herd from 2 herds of 3 to 1 herd of 6 bighorns.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent the covered wagon from spawning during nomad game mode.
  • Removed some loops for quicker load time.
Amazonia
  • Re-scripted mines and trees so they spawn properly on the north island.
Great Plains
  • Reduced the second bison herd from 13 to 11.
  • Adjusted constraints on treasures to keep the tier 1 nuggets from bunching up around the edge of the map.
  • Removed some loops for faster loading.
  • Large GP only: adjusted constraints to ensure that resources spawn correctly.
  • Slight size reduction in team spawn.
  • Fixed an issue where some mines weren't spawning in team games.
Painted Desert
  • Fixed an issue where some players wouldn't spawn in FFA/2v2v2v2/imbalanced teams.
  • Slightly reduced the map size in team spawns.
Korea
  • Rebalanced hunts for team spawns.
Bengal
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes resulted in the native(s) settlements from spawning in 1v1.
Arctic Territories
  • Changed the water type so the terrain along the cliff edge is now buildable.
Florida
  • Altered trade routes in 1v1 only:
    • It's now more difficult for the top player to get first pass on third tp.
    • It's now more difficult for the water player to control the trade route.
    • Fixed an issue where one of the native settlements sometimes wouldn't spawn.
  • Touched up swamp islands and trees to fix an issue where trees would sometimes spawn so densely that pathing in and out of the swamp was blocked.
