GoodKingsFix

Author File Description
Bothorth
File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Screenshot:
This modpack fixes several small unit graphics glitches. Changes are made to the following Graphics resources:

Resource #8: Archer Idle
One frame was out of place, causing the Archer in the north-facing position to have a small 'twitch'. This has been removed.

Resource #666: Knight Death
There was a stray pixel in the upper left of the south-facing Knight's animation that has been removed.

Resource #852: Cavalier Death
Same as above.

Resources #2762, 2765, 2768, 2769, 2772: Heavy Camel
The Heavy Camel had a brown shadow that stood out against the black shadows of other units. The camel shadows are now all black.

Resource #2836: Pikeman Move
There was a stray pixel in the upper right of the Pikeman animation moving to the north-west /east, more noticeable than the Knight's pixel. It has been removed.

Must have AOK Mod Pack Studio to install.

Joshooarh I think you could have thought of a better name. I clicked on this from the "New Files" section and I thought it was a scenario or something.

Changed it. I've had a shortcut on my desktop for years called 'Kings', and this one next to it called 'GoodKings', as in, the good version of Age of Kings.
Mahazona thank you for the unit fix

Lol haha.

To be fair this seems like a good mod and would be useful now that it is done.

But how the hell do you manage to spot these things or in fact, give a damn enough to change a pixel or shadow color.

The only thing I noticed briefly but never really thought anything of was the archer glitch (I think).

Do you have OCD by any chance?

The Archer's tic and the flashing spots on the Pikemen had been bugging me for a while. I didn't notice the Knight/Cavalier spot until I looked at the animations and decided to throw them in. I thought the shadows were obvious.

Another annoyance is the Cavalier that dies in one position, then rotates to its final resting place. The south-facing converting Monk also has a tic I haven't been able to fix.

OCD? Maybe, what are the symptoms?

“GoodKingsFix” by Bothorth is a Mod Pack which fixes some glitches in the animations of a few units. It is called GoodKingsFix because it is creating a good version of The Age of Kings. I must say that Bothorth must have really good eyes to be able to spot some of these glitches because I never noticed them.

In terms of the quality of this Mod I would give this a straight 5. The glitches Bothorth has spotted have been fixed and now look correct. In other words this Mod works perfectly without any bugs or glitches. I give the quality of the Mod pack 5.

However in terms of usefulness this Mod doesn’t really seem very useful. I myself never spotted these glitches so I don’t really need the Mod Pack. Because the changes in this Mod Pack are so small I give the usefulness of the Mod Pack a 2.

Additional Comments:
A good Mod Pack which works perfectly. I only it was more useful.
