This my fist attempt to use modding tools
I tried to put the Medieval Pirates mod from AOE2HD to cd version
The game no longer crash;
1- The skiff data was changed from Type 80 Class 51 to type 70 class 3
Inspired on tutorial "Sea Buildings at Fishing Ship" and Portuguese 2.1 Mod and Perfect Expansion Mod (included on empires2_x1_p1.dat if you're interested on study)
2- The Mine built in shanty was removed and now the own shanty produces gold (destroyed when depleted). inspired on Age of Galactica (house) and portuguese 2.1 (bank)(included on empires2_x1_p1.dat if you're interested on study)
3- The Farm was changed at class and resource type
A lot of things were removed till i found the bug (and somethings i didn't like) so if you want the original mod without crash is probably possible to achieve if you replace the changes above (1, 2 and 3).

I'll keep on modding for myself cause i don't want to disturb the original creator, so don't expect news releases, i just wanted to release a stable version (without crashes) on AOKHeavens
you have permissions from the authors to reupload the files under your name ?

Credit is given where credit is due. I see no problems giving you permission for the data/mechanic changes. If the the graphics were backported to the DRS files, Ozhara has credit to the textures and some of the blends as I used many of them. gagman has some mechanical credit as I used some of concepts & exploits that he researched.
