I thought either Old School mod or Legacy mod.
Anyway, what is this about? Giving AoE3's graphics a cartoony art style of course!
I'll be honest with you, this idea didn't came out of the blue, I was inspired by the recent Toon Skyrim Mod (Toon AoE3 Mod?) which looks interesting and brought forward a very good point. Realistic graphics tend to get old fast, and in AoE3's case, well it's a game from 2004. A cartoony art style however, is timeless.
Again, not my words but I agree with them. I know how some people reacted to AoE Online's cartoony graphics and it wasn't very nice, so with that in mind I wanted to ask you guys first.
(I know you can see the lines where textures meet a bit, but I found out how to make them less visible after making these screenshots, so just ignore them...)
So what do you think? Do you like it? Does it have potential? Before I converted more textures I wanted to know if all my work is for nothing. I mean, I didn't even get to converting effects such as smoke and explosions, which could prove difficult to make, but I have faith it will work.
Please leave your opinion in the comments and tell me if I'm wasting my time or not. I mean, more than usual...
