Hi i dowloaded your mod for aoe hd it works fine but i don't have any of the villagers new skins.
Also i suggest you change the monks skins to make some hooded in robe priests with another stick that way it would look better and be more universal for non christians cultures like vikings and asians.

Vikings eventually turned christian I believe, some in the castle age.

Personnaly I'm not choked. The monk does not have a cross.
He has a tonsure, that's true. But it's not a priest, it reminds neutral.
He has a book. A Bible or a Coran. Or Confucius scripts ? ^^

But +1 to have a more "monastic" cloth (hooded etc.).

Jorgito said in Steam that the villagers and monks are not yet ready. About the monks, my suggestion is to make a muslim imam for sarracens, persians, turks, indians and the upcoming african kingdoms, and a buddhist monk for mongols, chinese, japanese and koreans. Christian priests are ok since vikings were converted into christianism, just like the persians who were converted into islam.

Once you have the AoE2 HD re-skin.rar you need to extract the files and there you will see the 3 folders, one for units, other for terrain and the other for cliffs.

Let me know if you need more help because perhaps i didnt understand your question :(

(I dont speak english and is hard for me to understand everything)

Why paladin are holding two lances. O_O

That is a problem of the game it self. Paladins and champions have a really annoying bug that duplicate frames on their standing position. How is possible that you never noticed on the original version? i was watching paladins with 2 horse heads and chaps with 4 arms lol

I cant fix it, is not a problem of the mod, is a problem of the Game and the developers should fixed.. i dont know why they didnt yet :S

To install this mod you need to back up your original files first.

Once you have everything saved in a safe place follow this steps:

There are 3 folders on the .rar file:

Cliffs
Re-skin mod
Terrain

To install the new unit graphics:

Open the folder Re-skin mod
Select and copy the files "graphics.drs" and "interfac.drs"
Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Age2HD\Data
Paste the files there, it will ask you if you want to overwrite the old files with the new ones, so click on "yes"
The units should be working now.

To install the cliffs:

Open the folder Cliffs
Select and copy all the files.
Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Age2HD\Data\Slp
Paste the files there, it will ask you if you want to overwrite the old files with the new ones, so click on "yes"
The cliffs should look different now.

To install the terrains:

Select and copy the folder Terrain.
Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Age2HD
Paste the folder "terrain" there, it will ask you if you want to overwrite the old files with the new ones, so click on "yes"
When you launch the game you should notice the new terrains by now.

Yes you can, but instead of copy the files into the steam folder that you dont have, you need to go to where your game is installed and paste the new files there. Remember to back up the originals.

Taichi here from aokh.
if you have problems with double frames your probably importing full 9 direction frames into the game, actually you only need the 5 first directions (front, front left, left, left upper and upper), there are properties inside the game data that automatically mirrors the frames and fills in the missing directions so, your data will be smaller, but you will also get rid of the double frames

Hi! the units have 5 directions, the problem about duplicate frames is a bug on the HD version that the devs didnt fix yet.

In the original game without mods Champions and Paladins only on their standing position looks like 2 or 3 units moving at different times creating the illusion of having 2 horse heads in the paladin or 2 upperbody in the case of the champ.

In my mod the champion looks like if "he seems to have 2 swords some times" so is barely noticeable.
And the paladin looks like he have 2 lances but at least not 2 horse heads.

I really hope they fix this bug is really annoying.

Great mod finally a long swordsman doesent look downgraded version of man at arms xD anyways i have few suggestions dont know if possible but here it goes every nation have its own heraldy simbol i mean if i play french i want it to have french simbol not enlgish same for other countries, diffrent units for continental civilizations i mean lets take those men at arms they wear european armor and have englands simbol everything woud be ok exept for simbol with european factions but if im playing native americans,asians or middle eastern they look out of place if that woud be possible to fix it woud be cool

The lion wasnt used only by englad, i mean yes on movies but is actually a common heraldic symbol they even use it in Narnia haha.

If you notice the original paladin have a shield with a lion (i am talking of the vanilla graphics).

I could choose to use an eagle or a boar or any other thing, but since Lions, fleur de lis,etc are the most popular i used those.

But dont worry for future patches my plan is to make an entire unit rooster for every building set.

So you will have west european, north european, mezoamerican, etc,etc :)

yes its common but still theres got to be some recognition which country you are playing :) since every feudal lord had heralding symbol its impossible to put everyone in game but i think its possible to put royal families(kings family)heraldic symbol somethign like those 3 dragons for english fleur de lis for france nad other royal families heraldic symbols for other countries well exept those that have few countries like goths then find somethign in common to them :) also are you planning to reskin building too ? and maybe you will do somethign like i can build guy with shield with has more protection than the guy with 2handed weapon but has less damage than that guy now that woud be awesome? xD

Dont worry i totally understand you, i will see what i can do :)

For future patches i want to finish with all the units and then perhaps buildings.

Concerning gameplay changes like the one you suggested, there is a great mod in the making that have a lot of cool stuff like the ones you posted and i am making units for that guy too :)

you can check his proyect on Aok.heavengames.com

No, you dont need steam to play it, follow this instructions and you will be fine:

There are 3 folders on the .rar file:

To install the new unit graphics:

Open the folder Re-skin mod
Select and copy the files "graphics.drs" and "interfac.drs"
Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Age2HD\Data
Or in the place that you have installed the game, the important is that you discover where is the data folder with files graphics.drs and interface.drs

Paste the files there, it will ask you if you want to overwrite the old files with the new ones, so click on "yes"
The units should be working now.

To install the cliffs:

Open the folder Cliffs
Select and copy all the files.
Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Age2HD\Data\Slp

Paste the folder "terrain" there, it will ask you if you want to overwrite the old files with the new ones, so click on "yes"
When you launch the game you should notice the new terrains by now.

If that doesnt help let me know, good luck :)
