Chinese,Japanese,Korean,Mongols Asian unit set.

Special credit to Senoid for doing the majority of the data work without his help this would not be possible.Unit credits inside the file.
How to Install: Replace the original game files with these files in the Data folder,
Dont forget to take backups of your original files.
If using UP 1.4. The right dat is Empires2_x1_p1.dat to replace.
How to use with HD version
All you need is Turtle pack and Advanced Genie Editor. You just need to open the contained drs in Turtle packs DRS program and extract all the slp files to your C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Age2HD\resources\_common\drs\graphics
Then, rename the file empires2_x1.dat to empires2_x1_p1.dat and place it in your C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Age2HD\resources\_common\dat and use it to replace the one already there. Open the AOK HD defaults in Advanced Genie Editor and and save them again.
Any chance of getting The Forgotten/African Kingdoms support?
(i mean just getting it work, not creating unit skins for the new civs, but that would be nice too)
That would be great, this mod is awesome i was wanting this since i was a kid playing The Conqueros
I was trying to make it work with the new expansions but i couldn't figure it out (i'm a modding noob lol)
Idk why so many mods here on AokH only work with the original version of the game and the Conqueros
sorry for my english it's not my main language

Hey Mahazona. I'm in the process of implementing unit support for my Independent Architecture mod on the HD Workshop and I was wondering if I could have your permission to upload an IA Version of this mod to the Workshop on your behalf?
I will list your name on the title and as the original author, as well as providing a link to this AoKBlacksmith page and the one on ModDB.

Sure go ahead,please credit the original unit authors as well.I used many units from other modders.
You might be able to find better units to replace some of the units which are not complete.
While your at it might be a good idea to make separate unit graphic entries to the african and east asian civics.sooner or later there will be units for them.

I'm also looking to add units to an IU mod set. I'm new to this site though. This file isn't setup the way others are. How do I get to the individual unit files?
Nevermind. It would seem all I needed to do was read.
