This AOE mod is developed by Ivindor and Huanglukuzhu. The mod aims at making varied looking generic units for different civs in AOE, thus enhancing the game quality and making it more historical accurate. For the first time you will get a chance to control Chinese lancers when you choose Chinese,to control Arab cavalry when you choose Saracens, and to control Yari Ashigarus when you choose Japanese. In this mod, different civs will have different cavalry and infantry in their own unique looks. 【Notice】:Since this mod only makes the generic units' look diverse and the data almost keeps unchanged, please don't use my original new cavalry graphics in other mod cause I've made great efforts to make every of them.

This AOE mod is developed by Ivindor and Huanglukuzhu. The mod aims at making varied looking generic units for different civs in AOE, thus enhancing the game quality and making it more historical accurate.

For the first time you will get a chance to control Chinese lancers when you choose Chinese,to control Arab cavalry when you choose Saracens, and to control Yari Ashigarus when you choose Japanese.

In this mod, you will feel a whole new gaming experience when faced with the the real collision between different civilizations. Different civs will have different cavalry and infantry in their own unique cultural looks, not like in the original AOE every civ uses the same knight..

Here goes the screenshots


Chinese vs MongolsChinese vs Mongols
New units in this screenshot:
Chinese(blue): Lancer(new skin for Chinese Knight)
Mongols(orange): Heavy Cavalry(new skin for Mongol Cavalier), Steppe Rider(new skin for Mongol Hussar)



Saracens(horse color changed from brown to white)
Saracens vs Crusaders
New unit in this screenshot:
Saracens: Eastern Cavalry(new skin for Saracen Knight)
Now you can see a real collision betwwen the West and the East, not like in the original AOC everyone uses the same European knights


Japanese Army

New units in this screenshot:
Elite Yari Ashigaru(new skin for Japanese Halberdier)
and a new skin for Japanese Champion



Byzantines vs Turks
Byzantine vs Turks
New skin for Byzantine Halberdier (shared by European civs)
New skin for Turks Cavalier and Janissaries

In this mod, I only modify the look of the generic units, stats remains as before. For example, a Chinese Eastern Lancer data is all the same with the European knight's , they only have different looks.

May I make an alternative Heavy Cavalry Line for your mod?

(Arabic and asian units) Aok.heavengames.com

*The Cavalier is the Old Boyar and the Feudal Knight for Mediterranean can be found somewhere in the AoK heaven (even though I can't seem to find it where)....

I would also like to suggest a new Asian Spearman: Aok.heavengames.com

Thanks a lot. My knowledge about medieval Spain is limited, your design for Spanish and Byzantine cavalry line is much more historically accurate.

and about the unit names, actually, 2 years ago, I also tried to make the names of the units as historical as possible, such as a variety of names including"Savaran","Spahi","Keshik" etc. But now I find that just naming them "heavy cavalry" would make it easier for the gamer to distinguish them and make the gaming experience more simple. :)

On second thought, your version of Imperial Heavy Cavalry is better than the one in my screenshot (helmet). You might keep that as Savaran/Imperial Heavy Cavalry.

Well, there is a trick there actually... Amongst the Persians, Saracens, Turks, Indians, Berbers, Ethiopians and Malians, the only ones to have Paladin/3rd Tier Heavy Cavalry are the Persians. Therefore I think it is fit to name it "Savaran" due to the fact that normally other Middle-Eastern civilizations except for the Persians don't have access to that unit.
