The Mod Pack replaces all King units, the King, Shah and King Alfonso into the ES alpha or beta version (who cares?) of a mounted hero with a lance. The icon is TC and works as well for the AoK version.
USEFULNESS/NOVELTY: A great mod pack, the mounted King looks much better than the original little fat one, and is worth to install permanently for all your regicide games. It replaces the original well, garrisons also in castles, towers and town centers, is more king like. Furthermore, it replaces the Shah in AoK and King Alfonso and the Shah for the TC version. Both have little attack, and unlike other units an intelligent behavior. They attack and follow weaker units like other Kings, monks with or without relics and villagers, but flee from stronger units. The eye candy value is high, beautiful and the mod would serve well in a tournament. Undoubted novelty value and very creative, it is the first King mod pack at the blacksmith. 5
QUALITY/INSTRUCTIONS: The graphics are excellent and consistent with the game. The fast movements suit the mounted King better than the original foot unit does, which are ridiculous, compared to this one. The mod pack has no noticeable errors and the author’s description informs what the mod pack is for and what it replaces. 5
OVERALL: A perfect mod, looks better, moves better and is more useful than the original.
OBSERVATION: The designer will probably be surprised that he hit the jackpot, according to his comments he did not realise the multiple uses his mod offers. The mod replaces the normal King for regicide and the Shah and King Alfonso for Kings with attack.
SUGGESTION: Please delight us with another mod pack.
IN CLOSING: You miss some fun if you play another regicide without this mod, download now!

"King" by Ioannis the Great is a great Mod Pack which turns the stupid little Fat king into a Mounted King. The Mounted King looks really good and the Mod Pack also changes the heores; King Sancho, King Alfonso and the Shah. However when the Units die the Graphics change completly to the heroes that look like the Frankish Paladin. It would also be better if the King could attack to. it's a bit stuoid having a weapon if the king can't use it.
A great Mod Pack wich makes the King alot better.
