This modpack changes the current jannisaries into the ones taken from the beta version of AoK. Those jannisaries from the AoK beta wore pointy cone-shaped hats that many people thought looked pretty cool. Besides they looked more historically accurate with those hats as those hats were the badge of priviledge for those elite Turkish
But then little while before the release of AoK, Microsoft urged ES to remove those hats because the hats made the Jannisaries look like *cough*Ku Klux Klan members. Well they may or may not have made a right decision though. I respect their choice. However if you want a little souvenir from the game's past and want things to look better(IYO)
and more historically accurate, then feel free to do anything with this mod or decompile it for your own project JUST SO LONG AS YOU ARE NOT PROMOTING RACISM(and I'm dead serious)!!;-)
they dont even look that much like klannies, at some angles they look more like chefs!

Nice mod Agamemnnon, The pointy hats are cool. BTW why don't you combine all your beta units/building mods into one so people can use all them in their scenarios.

This MOD is really cool. There is a pic of the original Janissaries in the intro movie to the William Wallace Campaign.
(P.S. My best freind is black and I told him about this and he said he would not be offended by something as minor as that)

This a another great mod that replaces a unit with a better one. This janissary mod is good because now they look more turkish. I was thinking, and there are many beta units in game that are better than the final release. I would like to see other beta mods for units, like those in the game info/units/unsorted units, in the AoK heaven page. They look so cool, especially the Infantry units.

I just want to say that this is among the best of the modpacks I've seen! I really want to permanently install it, but I just want to know if permanently installing a modpack will affect multiplayer games? Will it still be possible to play multiplayer games like always? This mod made me get in history mood! ^^
