I still say that if he is Polynesian, then he probably wouldn't be on Easter Island. :p

i second that

plus you could give him anything else than +1 mov, how many time did you gave that bonus to some UU? with vikings, that's the second time you give that to some galley!! it's not unique at all!!

if you want to go with a naval UU, give a promotion like the one giving some escape %...

Great job on the Polynesians CivArmy. ^^ I am having a blast playing them on tiny island archipelagos. Just one question though. The flag for the units is all white? What do I do to fix that? Thanks again. :)

this flag problem has happened in many Civis and I don't know how to solve it untill now :( The correct flag is that one of the previews (1st post) :D

the alpha channel is in photoshop
the whiteflag is a tag in the artcivilisations.xml file

hmm . . . a galley with +1 movement is ok, but the idea doesn't seem to do justice to the ancient seagoing pan-pacific polynesian peoples. Here is an idea you may like better, or you may hate completely:

Outrigger Canoe
require tech - fishing
Strength 2
Movement 1
May carry 1 settler, worker, missionary
May not enter oceans
May explore rival territories

In the end it winds up being a very primitive version of the caravel which you get right at the start. It's weak and it can't cross oceans, but it is the perfect thing for a race that spread across the vast tracts of oceania in the worlds prehistory. Eventually barbarian galleys would pretty much "obsolete" it, but early on it gives a decent advantage, an early ocean rush, and even on a pangea map building one would allow you to 100% circle the continent by sea.

well, UU are replacement of Unit, not entirely new unit for a civ that others won't get....

Why not? I think such a change is pretty unique, don't you think?

Why not give them a better workboat as UU instead? Something like +1 food from fish,crabs,etc.

This would reflect the tiny islands they live on.

Thats a really good idea!

the problem for it is that it is much more complicated than a new UU, you have to do some python...
(besides that, i think it's overpowered too)

what about a galley whit 1+ moviment, transport 1+ unit and 1+ power? isn't a good UU? :D

LAnkou
Dec 12, 2005, 06:45 PM
ok for that, a galley is too much map dependant so you can make it a little ubber...

Did you guys know that the Polynesians gave the style of generic European intercourse the term "missionary position?" :D

The problem is the NIF file has more then 10 mega, I want turn it smaller before add it. I asked for help on main creation boarder, but if someone knows how to do that, tell me! :)

enjoy
