ZULU VS BRITISH
This is my first mod pack ever. I made it with MS paint and it includes this.
Eagle warrior=Zulu warrior house=beehive hut changes archery,barrax,castle,siege workshop,market,towers,stone wall and gate.
Hand cannoner and janissary=British soldier
Changes Archery,barrax,monestary into hospital,siege workshop,tower,stone wall and gate.
ES flag=bamboo high trees to hide in
Haystacks=sand bags and other things
Heads on posts=british flags
roman ruins=dead armys
statue=british flag w/out shadow
stump=chopped down tree.
this mod doesnt include the names of the units so the names will stay and eagle warrior hand cannoner and janissary.
This is a very good mod, for a first attepmpt I think. It brings the bravado of the Zulu wars to life, and is very well done.
It didn't get a 5.0 because of a few things like, the names were still the same, the flags looked a bit fake and there were no new sounds, but still, very good mod.

I'm sorry, but I can't see how this gets a 4.5.
The buildings looked very unrealistic and mixed. I thought for a minute that the Celts and Aztecs had met. A little more time could've been spent on all of the buildings, especially the Castles. I'd give this section a 1.
The units, particularly the Hand Cannoneer and Janissary replacements, were like the buildings - unrealistic. I think you could have put more time into giving them more color variety; the AoK palette has more than 1 shade of red and grey. I liked the Zulu warrior, but the loin cloth was unattractive. Also, the British soldiers kind of looked like MLB players. I'd give this section a 2.5.
I didn't find this mod to be all that useful in scenarios, or just for plain fun. 1.5.
A language.dll change would be nice; I found it confusing playing as the Turks and having British soldiers. But really, it's not that important. 3.
