Age of Empires III: Struggle of Indonesia is a non-commercial and fan-based modification for Ensemble Studios' last RTS game before its demise, Age of Empires III. The mod features a new setting focused on the events revolving the history of Indonesia before and during the Dutch colonialization, bringing forth civilizations based on old kingdoms of Indonesia.

As of the Alpha version, installing the game would overwrite Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties, and any other data you have in the Y-Pack data files. Be sure to make a copy of your installation if you do not want to lose your existing data files.

Civilizations Edit

As of the Alpha version, Struggle of Indonesia includes the Javanese civilizations and Aceh. More civilizations, including Johor, Malaya, Minangkabau, Nederlands-Indie, Straits Settlements, and Portuguese Timor, are to be added in the future.
