-New Skins for Iran and India.

-Pakistani, Iranian, Italian, and German assault infantry have been issued FAL assault rifles.

-New tanks: Leopard C2 for Canada, Type-37 and Type-98 for China.

-Canada now has updated city names.

-Smoke graphics improved.

-Saudi's now recieve the M1A1 Abrams MBT.

-New icon and Camo skin for the Russian T-90.

-Some minor gameplay balances.

-Israelis recieve a new desert F-16....props to Axel for the sweet skin.

-Naval Warfare improved....advanced battleships can now effectively bombard cities!

-Submarines take longer to build and are now more deadlier.



-Supply wagons Heal your forces.

-AI disabled for all civs except China.

-Population limit increased to 600.

-Realistic battle system....eg. tanks can destroy infantry in one hit, jet fighters can easily clear out ground forces, helicopters useful versus all other enemies in addition to tanks...etc.

-Elite Special Forces have more craft.

-Naval warfare improved.

-Now when you enable the "No_nukes script" in the quick battles menu, your enemies will use cruise missiles. Beware they can be a hassle, so don't come complaining to me.

-Updated Leader names.

-Realistic names for vehicles and weapons systems.

-Flamethrowers, now have more armor.

-Wonders....Only the countries that actually buit those wonders in real life recieve them. For instance...only China can build the Terra Cotta Army.

-All the nations above are accurately represented. For instance the arab civs recieve citizen units that look arab. All of the skins are representative of their respective countries. All the countries recieve weapons systems according to what these countries currently field in their arsenals. For instance Countries that use soviet technology recieve RPG's and T-72 or T-80 tanks. Countries like Iraq, who have old military technology recieve Modern Age AA units...etc. Play the mod you'll see

*Next patch will include Venezuela, Sudan, and Sweden.

This mod features the same "engine" as my battlefield mod.

A word of warning: your computer might lag if you play big battles with like 8 civs because of the increased pop limits.


Credits: I would like to thank ODA and Unit 35 for their Super Etendard and Leclerc Models, Also I would like to thank Benemesius for the MIG star symbol skin. Also I want to thank ODA for his T-72 skin and panzer one model. Lastly, a huge thanks to Axel of Sweden for his amazing tank skins!!!


-Just pop it in your mods directory. Make sure you make it into one file ;).

art files and sound effects:

-go to my computer.
-go to your hard drive, on most computers its local disk C.
-go to program files.
-go to microsfot games.
-go to rise of nations Thrones and Patriots.
-go to the directory called "art."
-now copy and paste all of my art files into there.
-now go to the folder called "data," and copy and paste my "soundfiles" xml file into that folder. My soundfiles xml file is located inside my data file in the WW3 folder.
-now go back to the main directory and copy and paste all of the sounds I have provided into the folder called "sounds."

Now u should be good to go.

Hello Uthum.Great mod.But,you didn't created the Cruise Missile Sub.I have created Cruise Missile Sub but what happen is the country that use cruise missile sub as its attack submarine like Russian and other country that use it receive WW2/WW1 submarine as their attack submarine not the Information Age submarine.Why this happen?
Rating: 5

With excellent gameplay, of RoN 2 Standard in fact, this is the most well deserved 5 ever.

You have achieved so much, even so long after RoN was released.

Well done!

PS: See above comment for more (clicked Comment instead of review just now and didn't realise, sorry).

I wanted to echo the thoughts and feelings of the above poster. This mod is the reason I still play Rise of Nations. Although it is my favorite video game of all time for any system ever created, WW3 gives it the replayability and innovativeness it needs to never lose its excitement. I look forward to playing ww3 everyday after work, and all the modding I do is based on and in junction with WW3. Of course I would not want to release my changes to ww3 because the work was not done by me, it was done by uthum. I am able to recreate all the conflicts of modern times and of the last 25 years or so with just a few minor changes! I absolutely love this mod and felt that I needed to express how much I apprciate the outstanding work that was done by Uthum.

this modification is worth a five due to the fact that is very accurate about the units and equipment used by todays modern forces.
it has also made me enjoy the game a lot more
and adds that unique sense of realism

Additional Comments:
the units represent modern day warfare which RTS's should do.
a lot of effort and time has been spent on this.
