This is truly one of the best add-ons to the game I have ever seen (yet). It features land trade through the work of merchants, mounted merchants and trade carts. A new building can be built, the trade workshop, and the add-on is playable in both singleplayer and multiplayer modes.

It is incredible how great it is to see land merchants roaming the place. Unbelievable. It adds so much to the game, without taking away the original feeling.

What is negative than? Well, land trade takes place between docks. This adds some limitations, but on a Coastal map, it is still great. There is an editor's patch also included, which will allow you to place trading centers in the editor, and use them for land trade.

A small but complete mod that essentially adds a new building to the tech tree (Trade Workshop) which produces Merchants. Merchants can trade dock to dock on land. Trade boats still trade across the sea.

The criticism would be that the merchant, mounted merchant and trade cart do not have their own graphics. You can create a labour camp and carriers via the scenario editor but these do not appear to serve any functional purpose. Finally, the mod is based on the vanilla Age of Empires rather than the expansion.

Additional Comments:
Even now, it is worth checking out to see how land trading can be conducted and how a complete mod package should be made. This mod doesn't even affect your original game.

Its a shame that scenario_t_c never got around to finishing his other mods.
