New eastern swordman

Author File Description
File Details
Version: Age of Empires II (2013): The Forgotten
This is a little modpack with slps from the new eastern swordman added in the african kingdoms expansion (Age 2HD).

Credits: Todler (Yan)

The swordman looks really indian, as you can see on this page (with the new indian set from Tzontlimixtli):,,0,30&st=245

This unit should replace the champion.

Hi! Credits updated :)
Mahazona For some reason I always thought this unit would look best as a spear man.

As far as I'm concerned I would like to see a light cavalry/hussar with the upper body of this unit, and an indian knight with the upper body of the new imperial camel skin.
YuiHira Fairly new at downloading and installing these mod packs. Could someone please give me a step-by-step instruction how to install these SLP mods under the steam folder locations?

Thank you!!

Hi Yuihira,

First of all, you need to install turtle pack, in order to visualise the slps. For age2 HD, you don't have drs files, instead you have large files of slps. So you'll need to open slp editor to vizualise the slps you want to replace.

The path to find the slps for age2 HD should be Games Steam/ Steam Apps/ common/ Age2HD/ resources/ _common/ drs.

Once you're here, there are two important files: graphics (where most of slps are located) and gamedata_x2 (if you want to replace the indian/ magyar architecture for example). To replace the slps for the champion and install the eastern swordman skins you'll need to replace the slps of the champion. I give you the numbers: it should be from 3085 to 3095 in the graphics file. If you want more details, there are lots of articles in the forums. For the moment, I hope my explanation will help you.

Usefulness/Novelty: 5

Originally a graphic by Todler (Yan), the New Eastern Swordsman has been ported by Tomcelmic from AoF/AoAK for potential usage in CD version mods. AoE2 is notorious for its lack of proper unit and building graphics for regions outside of Europe, so unit graphics such as these are always prized by scenario designers and modders. The graphic was 3d-modeled from scratch, making it completely unique, albeit slightly inspired by the previous incarnation of the unit, which was Dave3377's Eastern Swordsman.

Quality/Instructions: 5

The graphical quality of this unit is quite high and, in my opinion, fits quite well with the other units in the game. Tomcelmic has provided excellent instructions on his filepage for how to go about implementing the graphics into the game.

An excellent graphic helping fill a void in terms of AoE2 units by region, this unit is definitely worth a look!

Wow! One of the modpacks I uploaded received a review! It's both unexpected and gratifying! Though I certainly can't claim half the merit this modpack deserves because I haven't designed this unit, it is really pleasant to see that making this unit available for everyone was a good idea, and that it is appreciated by the community. As far as I'm concerned, I'm slowly learning the ropes of modding, and I hope I'll be able to upload something I made myself, maybe this year :)
