Byzantine Sails

Version: The Conquerors 1.0c
Hi everyone !

Here is a complete mod of Byzantine sails, these large triangular pieces of cloth that were used by more than the Byzantine Empire during the Middle Ages. They will of course appear in Age of Voivods, the total conversion mod I'm still realizing with patience and enthusiasm !

They were realized on Blender (in 3D then) by my brother Jordan, initially only the biggest one. I then adapted it and resized it several times to create all necessary sails for all ships. The blue is colour-changing while the red remains whatever colour you play. This artwork quite inspired us :

A HD screenshot can be seen here :

To use the mod, extract all .slp files from the .zip. Then, use the Turtle Pack (downloadable here: to open DRS Editor. Then browse the graphics.drs file in your Age of Empires II directory, in the DATA folder.
All .slp included in this mod match with the Middle Eastern sails .slp, so you can replace them by just finding with DRS Editor the corresponding numbers.

When you find the Middle Eastern sail to replace, then right-click on its number, replace and browse the corresponding new .slp file you extracted. By clicking again on the number, you'll see the Middle Eastern sail replaced by the new Byzantine one. Do the same for all files, and DON'T FORGET TO SAVE when you're done.
You can then play the Byzantines, Saracens, Persians or Turks with these new sails. But if you're skilled on modding, you can of course use them as a new set of sails rather than replace an existing one.

This mod might be compatible with AOEIIHD, providing that you know where to put the .slp files.

Credits then go to Jordan MAFIODO and myself. If you wish to use this mod for one of yours, please credit us accordingly.

Enjoy your game !

TriRem Salut Steve !

Nice work with the sails, it's quite rare to see people modding them so it's really a unique mod :)

I'm looking forward for hearing again from Age of Voivods !
Seonid These look amazing. I might borrow them for my Wheel of Time mod - with proper credit given, of course.

Merci Trirem !

Don't worry, you'll have news soon, I'm working on it again, and when exams are finished, I should be able to post more news. Apart from voice acting, all progresses well.

Thank you Seonid. You may use them, of course :)
