i'm gonna try it now, i'll give feedback on my thoughts :)

It's a bit darker than the original, yes. ;)

But I could do something like a 'light' edition. Just give me a shout in case you found the pack you like most. :)

i guess i can give it a try, everything looks so dark and abandoned though

Hi

beside some changed terrains this just contains some more of my other replacements like mountains and berry bushes.

But there were several requests to not include these, so I switched back to the 'old' setup in v6 - and redid some terrains that weren't that popular like the v5 desert one.

So I would only recommend v5 in case you like the exact terrains in this pack. If not I would recommend to use v4 or v6 and perhaps take a look at my other replacements like mines, trees, roads and mountains. Most of them are available in several variants and grouped in collections so you can find them more easily.

My packs are 'just' sort of examples of possible compilations. :)

Hey...what's the difference between your "grand" texture packs and your "full" texture packs?
Ozhara  [author] Jul 1, 2014 @ 10:47pm 
Thanks a lot! Glad you like it. :)

A really nice texture pack.
Ozhara  [author] Feb 24, 2014 @ 2:37am 
For now the only solution is to delete the trees you don't want manually.

But I can upload a mod just containing the terrains, you then have to add the cliffs and mines seperatelly if you want to use them. Or I could publish the default trees as a seperate mod, overwriting the included trees froom other mods.

I like your texture packs a lot but, to me, the pine trees just look awful. Is there any way I can use your texture pack and have it use default pine tree textures?

Thanks, glad you like it!
And don't miss my new v6 I released this week.

@EddWar
Thanks, glad you like it. :)

@PerkinaT0R
All terrains work with every version, so yes it's usable with FE.
But for I released it before FE was released, it doesn't changes FEs new rock terrain and doesn't take FEs new types of terrain placement into account.

Therefore I would recommend to subscribe to my beach & rock enhancement after this, fixing all 'missing' parts. You can easily find it in my full texture pack collection linked above.
PerkinaT0R Jan 20, 2014 @ 10:52pm 
Does this mod support The Forgotten Empires?
EddWar Jan 20, 2014 @ 10:22pm 
Marvelous
Ozhara  [author] Jan 5, 2014 @ 3:40am 
Added 10 of the screens with the default graphics for better comparision. :)
Neurosis Jan 5, 2014 @ 2:52am 
Any comparison or before and after screenshots?

This piece of work is basic for this game, Hidden Path should have hired the author to make the new art. With this, your game will be truly HD. 100% Recommended, no problems, no drawbacks. Essential.
Ozhara  [author] Dec 22, 2013 @ 4:05pm 
Sorry, don't know what that could be, normally no textures (beside the unit reskin mod due to its implementation) cause sync errors.

Hello!
I really like your pack, but it seems for some reason it crashes my servers.
i often play with buddies, but when i try to use any texture-related mods it just crashes the game.
Do you have any idea of what's causing that and how to fix it?
thanks
Ozhara  [author] Dec 21, 2013 @ 4:30pm

Ozhara  [author] Dec 21, 2013 @ 4:23pm 
Yes, this is a good mod, therefore I alreay recommend it in the description. :)
rickard93 Dec 15, 2013 @ 11:58am 
THX A LOT, everything works just fine now.
Keep up the good work, and i'm looking forward to any new content.
And maby I will se you on the battlefield some day
Ozhara  [author] Dec 15, 2013 @ 11:14am 
Ok, I uploaded the fixed slp files as well as a fixed version of my cliff upgrade V2.
Ozhara  [author] Dec 15, 2013 @ 10:25am 
OK, I checked the section and for some reason it's like I said with the other one, the graphic is massivly displaced in the slp file.

Thanks a lot for mentioning, wouldn't have noticed it myself I fear (too little actually playing myself^^)

I'll upload a corrected one soon!

(I just checked it, this problem as even in the first upload of the unchanged, grey starwas battleground ones present...)
rickard93 Dec 15, 2013 @ 10:02am 
Thanks for the help but it didn't work,
I took two screen shoots and uploaded them in the in the sky drive link u sent.
there u can see the exact section that bugs.
It is only the texture of the cliff, I tried to run over the area I placed it but I couldn't.

Thx again :)
Ozhara  [author] Dec 15, 2013 @ 9:11am 
Thanks a lot!

For the cliffs. Beside the normal things like cliffs shouldn't be placed on elevations but only on plain areas - regardless of it's elevation level, try this:

http://sdrv.ms/1hV5yXc

Place the file in your AoE\data\slp folder, overwriting the existing one.
In case it's gone now, it's the one cliff section contained in this file, thats graphic is a bit displaced.
AoE sets a base area for collision and produced units and such - and a place for the graphic, but they aren't connected, so you could place a buildings graphic 3 tiles away from its base area, resulting in an empty space that can't be crossed and burns when the unit is damaged - and a buildings graphic without any collision/use somewhere else.
rickard93 Dec 15, 2013 @ 8:19am 
Ozhara, I have played this game since it came out back in 1999, may I say the game has never looked better after I started using this texture pack, great job
But recently I noticed that the cliff textures bugs.
I don't know why, because I have no mods that It could collide with.
But one section of the cliffs textures facing away from you vanishes or jumps to another area some distance from where you placed them, when being in the map editor.
Any idea what might be wrong.

@Liev Schreiber
But thanks for mentioning it, I'll definatelly take it into account for a V6/ a new water pack! :)
Ozhara  [author] Dec 15, 2013 @ 1:21am 
@FrostyBuds *Peace*
Thanks,glad you like it!

@Liev Schreiber
Glad to hear you like my land terrains.

For the water, my main goal was to stretch the 'floating' wave effect accross the whole screen, but for this effect is the stronger the deeper the water is (it's a game setting, not mine), this kind of annihilates depth differences.

In every version I'm trying to find a good compromise, but as you can see, none of them will please everyone.

For a file is changed by the last subscribed mod changing it, you can easily subscribe to another water mod after this one.

In case the water you like most isn't available seperately, you could ask it's autor to do such a seperate water mod, or you could try my Mod Manager.
With this tool you can easily just install parts of mods or mix them. And even save such mixes as your own personal mod for easier use.
[B-LG] Billy Zane Dec 14, 2013 @ 11:48pm 
Everything looks great but the one thing that's stopping me from subscribing is that blasted water. It just doesn't look that great. I've seen some other great texture re-works for water, including the introduction of varying depth. I'd recommend getting permission to include that in your bundle to make it perfect.
#Unity|FrostyBud*GodIsLove* Dec 14, 2013 @ 6:50pm 
I am using it now and its so beatiful. Thank you so much for the beatiful age i was looking for.
Ozhara  [author] Dec 14, 2013 @ 4:12pm 
Yes it will. It just doesn't change the additional FE rock terrain and the terrains aren't optimized for some new FE terrain effects (some of them can now be placed in other ways than before).
#Unity|FrostyBud*GodIsLove* Dec 14, 2013 @ 1:57pm 
Hey Will this work with Forgotten expansion Ozhara? Thank alot! your the best
Ozhara  [author] Dec 7, 2013 @ 1:30pm 
Beside this, there are others (including me^^) that like this desert, and you can easily combine this mod with any other desert texture by using my Mod Manager.
With the next release (hopefully this weekend) you can even save this change as a new, personal mod.
Ozhara  [author] Dec 7, 2013 @ 1:26pm 
Because steams workshop mod update is really buggy and never worked for me (and many others) after the first try. It says it was succesfull, but nothing changed.
Oinker Dec 7, 2013 @ 1:21pm 
Why not just change the desert terrain in this one and repost it so the subscribers will get the update automatically instead of releasing a v. 6?
DeFierro Dec 5, 2013 @ 7:59pm 
That's great, tried it and worked. I'll try the mod you said as well. Thank you again for the quick answer, Ozhara, your work is really appreciated!
Ozhara  [author] Dec 5, 2013 @ 3:20am 
Every file is only replaced by the last subscribed mod changing it.

So in case you subscribe to cinematic water after my mod, it will overwrite my water.

Just in case you want to have a look around for some other waters, I published different water mods (you can find them in my collection of water mods) but some of them aren't available on their own until now. My grim & gritty terrain pack contains the newest version.

So in case you would like to use my kind of water, but one that can't be subscribed seperately until now, just tell me.
DeFierro Dec 5, 2013 @ 1:52am 
Thank you for your work. I'd like to ask you something, I really like the textures you made, except the water. I think it's too bright. Can I use a different mod for it? I was using one called "cinematic water" but when I installed this, that water was replaced by yours. Hope it's not a stupid question, hahah. Keep up the good work!
Ozhara  [author] Dec 5, 2013 @ 1:19am 
And thanks a lot for your kind words, Glad you both like my textures!
Ozhara  [author] Dec 5, 2013 @ 1:17am 
@ The Horse
Others mentioned the same, so I'll change it back to a more sandy look in the next version.

Idea was to create a less plain looking terrain than in v4 without too much 'sand dunes', as that much 'structured' terrains mostly doesn't look that good at elevations.
So I mixed the v4 sand with my snow terrain and some other layers.

As a workaround, you can use my Mod Manager to install just the desert terrain out of every other mod over this one. (there are some things that have to be considered, so I recommend to read the manual before using it)
