Voobly's mod support has just gotten better! We are happy to announce that Voobly has now added support for visual modifications (aka .slp mods). Through the new mod system it is possible to install/uninstall different Visual Mods directly from the Voobly website with a click of your mouse, there are no files to copy or replace, no muss, no fuss. This is on top of the advanced game play mod (aka data mods) support that Voobly has had for the past few years. For data mods, they can be selected in the game room settings to ensure everyone has the same game play changes so the game won't go out of sync, now with visual mods users can install different selections of mods to customize their to game to however they like.

An example of how this makes graphic mods much easier to use is small trees (aka pussywood), this mod used to be a massive 80mb download with a complicated install process, now with our improved support this mod can be downloaded and installed in a flash.

Visual or graphics mods are currently supported for AoC, AoFE, and AoK. To install the mods please visit the Voobly game mod page for you game. Look for mods that are listed as having "Visual Changes" for these new mods:

Uninstall Mods


Easy setup is now even easier:

This update helps address two goal we have at Voobly, the first being be the simpliest place to start playing games online and the second provide the most flexible mod suport. Afer this update and other recent updates, users can do the following in 1-2 minutes:
  • Download/Install Voobly
  • Install Visual Mods aka SLP Mods (e.g. small trees/pussywood, no snow)
  • Autoinstall 1.0c through the Voobly Client
  • Use game diagnostics to fix many game problems
  • Start a game and fully enjoy a wide range of community made mods

Going Forward:

With this huge step forward we are excited to improve our mod support even further. Future plans will include expanding this install method to include not only Graphic Mods aka Exe Mods, but also expand into other areas of the game to include other files such as Map Packs and Recorded Games.

We will also continue to add more SLP Mods to our current Mod list, if you have created a Mod and would like to have it added or feel that you can help us improve our Mod list please contact PIN3. These visual mods can be created a few minutes and are just a zip of .slip files. We'll be working on the user submission details for slp mods in the next couple weeks.

Future Planned Improvements:
  • Increase the amount of SLP Mods (we need you!)
  • Add support for map packs
  • Add support for recorded games
  • Improve the exe/data/gameplay mod support (including autodownload in the game room when not all users have it)
  • Any requests you might have?
