Calling all AoE II: HD Steam Workshop content creators!
Starting today, the weekly Monday stream (1-3 PM PDT (GMT-7)) at twitch.tv/agefoempires will be all about featuring community-made content! If you have a favorite map, texture pack, custom scenario, or anything else on the Steam Workshop, post the links in this thread and we will feature them live on stream.

On Tuesdays, I post a recap of the mods highlighted on previous day's stream, which you can find here: http://www.ageofempires.com/blog/?cat=43

Sounds like a great idea; can't wait to watch some of the videos.
I guess this is sort of a replacement for featuring content at http://ageofempires.com/news.html

Its definitely better, since with a livestream you can demonstrate the workshop content on the spot instead of just offering a description :)

I'm a huge fan of jorgito_aqua27's unit reskin mod here Almost all the units were remodeled from scratch and look fantastic!

To install, you will have to download the unit skins from ModDb since steam didn't let the author upload .drs files. Then simply:

Open the folder Re-skin mod
Select and copy the files graphics.drs and interfac.drs
Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Age2HD\Data
Paste the files there, it will ask you if you want to overwrite the old files with the new ones (backup first!), so click on yes

Thanks, known - this looks great. A meeting prevented the community content stream today, but I'll be hosting it tomorrow. Assuming I can get it working, I'll showcase this!

No problem, work is work!

The easiest way to get the new unit reskins working is to backup and then simply replace graphics.drs and interfac.drs as I mentioned above. This way you won't touch any of your terrain textures (as I assume you want to keep your lava water).

You might then want to check out how the units look in a campagin or the scenario editor before diving into multiplayer as you may not recognize the units anymore!

Well, any update on featuring this?

We did a different stream yesterday since it was AoE II's birthday, but we'll be back with the regular community content stream next Monday.

I saw you tried to play Kings Blood in the last stream. Unfortunately the latest patch (2.7-2.8) made it crash on start up :(

@known2own4sho: if you happen to see this, I'll be using the unit re-skins today on stream, starting in 20 minutes!

@Bassefrom: nooooo! I hope it's playable again soon!

@Mandula: thanks for the recommendation! I'll play it today as well.

I think I managed to fix it temporarily. It was a problem with the initial start view that was introduced with the latest patches :)

@Bassefrom I'll try again today! Love the scenario :)

Fun game, crossroads is definitely unique. I made a map of my own called Creamy Defense. Its single player but there's also a two player version.

When Steam Workshop updates you have to change name of the file, otherwise it will cause error in the lobby. I updated to Kings Blood 0,8 and it should pop up in your folder. Was nice playing with you though!

Thanks for featuring this- jorgito_aqua27 certainly deserved the recognition! I couldn't watch live since I was at work but saw the VOD after. The author has mentioned in the workshop that he is waiting for FE to be released before releasing an updated version with skins for villies, monks, siege, etc.
