This mod changes the aok gold with the old gold from aoe. I take in no part credit for this mod. This was The_Nomad's I dea. and he is the one who gave me the slp's to make this.
Hope you like it!

AoE had a much better art than AoK has in a lot respects, not only the goldmine. I simply cannot grasp the idea behind using rocks in yellow hat to represent gold mines in AoK when AoE already had a nice and pretty rendering of it.
And while we are at it: animated units in AoE generally looked a lot better than AoK's. Artists designing AoE units knew somehow that if you are going to shrink an unit to the size when a couple of pixels have to represent a human face, then you cannot make the art too confusing by making the original too detailed. I am sure AoK units looked excellent on the drawboard in their original size but they just turned into a blur of pixels after they got shrunk to their intended size. Just compare AoE's Legion with AoK's champion or AoE's Cavalry Archer with its AoK counterpart to see what I mean.

Its a very good mod and I have downloaded it, but I prefer the AOK goldmine. Looks more like gold. I give it a 3.5.
