Nice little eyecandy lighthouse.
The author has an eye for detail but marks were deducted for a few simple things that could have been easily corrected.

Pros
=====
Great use of textures.
Shading is correct to AOK.
Nice amount of detail.
All player colors.

Cons
=====
No shadow. Here is this high structure with no shadow.
This makes the item appear to be floating slightly.

No light at the top of the lighthouse{apart from a few lamps}

No icon or language DLL {Still reads Pavillion}

Overall
=======
Very nice Mod if your in need of a lighthouse. Textures look great and there is just the right amount of eyecandy.
A worthy addition to your mod collection.

The Mod Pack replaces the big pavilion into a Lighthouse. The download, labeled TC, works also for the AoK version.

USEFULNESS/NOVELTY: Eye Candy Lighthouse is certainly a mod with many different uses, wherever a scenario plays on a coastal or island map. The usefulness goes beyond of just being eye candy. The lighthouse is used in 'Ash the Avenger' by Cavscout74, where it gave a nice touch to a coastal city. It is worth to install permanently, to replace the big pavilion fits well, as I can do without it where I need a lighthouse for a scenario. Furthermore, it is the first lighthouse for AoK. 5

QUALITY/INSTRUCTIONS: Excellent graphics, this is impressive! Detailed work, it looks great, beautiful, realistic by seize, and it is consistent with the game. The author's description indicates what the mod pack is for and what it replaces. The mod has no error and I refer to that statement under observations, great job! 5

OVERALL: A unique, creative mod pack, with a good use of textures, correct shading and all player colors.

OBSERVATIONS: I noticed a small shadow at the bottom of the lighthouse, it is late morning, and the sun not in the zenith yet, which would explain the missing light during daytime. Mind you that there is no night mode in AoK:TC. The shadow is comparable to other high buildings, like the Teutonic wonder/monument or the Byzantines'. High buildings with no shadow would be the Chinese and the Saracen wonder/monument. Personally, I would prefer no shadow for a high building to a failed attempt like the one for the Turkish wonder, which gives the impression of a torn map, unappealing on trees. Furthermore, I see no necessity of a language.dll; a designer can rename the building for the TC version. To include a language.dll and a mod pack with a scenario seems illusory, very optimistic at least.

IN CLOSING: This is a mandatory download for designers and players.
