I have here, trade goods of various types, weapons and garden patches for use as eye-candy to embellish and enliven your cities and villages. Images come from old city-builder games like Caesar III, Pharaoh, Zeus and Emperor as well as from Stronghold.
The number of frames for each slp is indicated in the file name so it should be relatively simple to add them to your game. Just copy something like a boulder/rock in AGE3 and then replace graphics and frames with required files.
Images on suggestions how to use these units in-game can be seen in the download.
Tell me how you find it. I am hoping to make this more dynamic in the future by adding them to trade carts such that trade carts will be able to have the goods they carry visible on them to simulate trading missions. I would be happy to talk to you if you can. Email is in profile and please credit me when using these files. Thanks!
This is awesome, would you please go the extra step and make them into a mod pack or installable file? PLEASE!

How would you use these in game? And where do you get the cows from?

"Trade Goods, Weapons and Gardens" by Charging_Knight is a pack of SLPs which contain eye-candy objects such as Trade Good & Weapon Stacks, which are converted from other games such as Caesar 3, Stronghold, Zeus, etc.
These new eye-candy objects are really useful for any Modder or Map Designer who wish to add more atmosphere and eye-candy into their scenarios or expansions. There are hundred of different graphics from a variety of different games, and they all work really well together, and fit in with the other AOK graphics decently. The weapon stacks will give a military base more atmosphere, and the trade good will add variety to your typical harbour scenes. Overall this mod is incredibly useful and add so much variety and atmosphere to your game.
As I said before there are hundreds of new graphics that come with this mod pack, all of them adding variety and atmosphere to the game. Most of the graphics are of good quality and blend into the AOK surrounds naturally, and very well. However, I do find that a couple of the graphics are slightly more cartoonish and don't fit in as well. I'm also not a fan of the high decks that the trade good from Ceaser 3 are on, or the white floor of the trade goods from Pharaoh. However, overall this Mod is of brilliant quality and well worth downloading for a more varied AOK environment.
The Instructions that come with the mod were clear enough for regular modders but could probably be a bit more clear for a new modder. The SLPs are all ordered in a systematic way according to the games they were taken from, and then what they are. Some SLPs even have the amount of frames in their titles.
Overall a brilliant Mod pack that is well worth downloading.
