Hello together

I think the board rules r that i have to write english? correct? (sux imo)

Well i got a question to Control groups....

In lategame i put my rax and stables to a control group (ctrl 8+9)..

Do u guys put ur buildings in colinial to Ctrl 8 + 9? (as it as example ourk does) Or do u just use ur stable hotkey + hotkey for the specific unit?

Ctrl 8 + 9 seems a bit far away for me isnt it better to put them on Ctrl 6 + 7? since i dont use more than 5 control groups?

Hoffe jeder verstehts... sonst schreib ichs noch auf deutsch lol

Thx in advance

Gr?sse Nero

@Starsky why dont u make any control groups for canons?

In late game when your troops get larger do u split ur troops (the same typ)with the mouse? (during the battle)

And what do you do with spa if you have rods/pikes/4 hussars/lancers/2 falcs/dogs/skirms?

Just in theory, do you put all HI units in one group?

Or if you have like cav (hussars or s.th.)+ranged cav (goons)+HI, do you put HI+ranged cav in 1 group? or 1 group per unit?

Yes thats what i thought too... If u have mass units do u just merge some units together in one control groups? and select them with the mouse?....

Because i cant use more than 4 ctrl groups with units..

And can smbdy tell why no ctrl groups for canons?

well the reason why i dont use ctrl groups is that the flags in the upper left corner drive me insane LOL

I confuse them with the "idle vill"flag all the time which either results in me having idles unnoticed or pressing "." all the time to find non existing idles...

hmhm maybe I should get an UI and become 2500

On a more serious note: could any1 link me to a nice, quikly/easily downloadable UI?

I just have the normal standard stuff, (zoom very far tho ofc lol) and minimized UI.

i'm not a pro, but i think qazitory's UI is best
used it for a long time and i'm pretty sure, my elorating would even have been lower without it

you can download it here, installation ain't hopefully not too difficult^^

hm i read the readme and put the files into C program files microsoft games aoe3 just as i was supposed to.

However, it doesnt seem to work for me. Do I maybe have to do something in the options in aoe3? Or possibly reinstall the game?

I'd appreciate any help

canons are so big and you will never have more than 5 at the same time in 90% of your games so you can easilie get them with the mouse
+ canons dont need much micro at all

in spa war
group 1 lancer huss
group 2 dogs rods pikes
group 3 skrims

and if got not all unit types I use groups for other stuff too. In battles I change groups pretty quickly to control smaller amounts of units.
