Trees have been reduced (60% width x 50% height) and slightly polished. Some jungle trees still have their normal size because they are already small. The download contains a compiled graphics.drs file ready for use.
This Mod Pack by AoC4ever reduces the size of the AOK trees by 50% making them much smaller than the originals. The reduction of the trees has been done very well and none of the detail on the trees has been lost and there is no blurry or pixelated frames. However, my big issue with this mod pack is just how absolutely unnecessary it is. Most players in AOK complain that the original AOK trees are too small, making them unrealistic. Reducing them even more makes this issue even more and makes map even more unrealistic. Overall I feel like this mod pack, though well made, is completely unneeded and pointless. I would not recommend this download.

Thanks for your review. I made this mod because all the other small trees sets were so tiny for my personal taste. So I tried to make some that are not so small but still allowing good playability. The weirdest thing I've read is people complaining about the size of the original trees for being too small, I've always noticed just the opposite.
This must be a "playability versus realism" dilemma and the appreciation of this work varies depending on both perspectives.

I'm glad you like it. You can use it in WololoKingdoms with Voobly as a local mod, the SLP files are there for anyone who needs them.

This niche mod definitely strikes a balance between two camps, namely the "I want humongous trees for extra immersion" and the "Pussywood tiny trees are best for competitive play". While being a compromise it won't fully please either,but I believe that it is a worthwhile mod that requires praise for all the hard work that went into it.
(Insert Quality/Instructions analysis here)
The resize of the graphics has not damaged them in any way. Easy to use.
While I always use default trees, I can definitely imagine these being great for building graphic decoration, since their quality is great.
