A set of Stone Age javelineers that I've made, collected or assembled using models and textures released by firaxis or other forum modders.
By reading this THREAD you'll understand the purpose of this collection, and you'll find additional in-game screenshots also. By reading this THREAD instead, modders will find useful infos in the javelineer's section.
Looking at or judging these units, you MUST consider the timeline. During the stone age period, NONE of the involved civilizations had existed, as you see at a glance on this CIVILIZATION CHART. As consequence I choose a nude-look design for units, only dressed with leather, animal skins or rough textiles and equipped with wood, stone or bone weapons. I decided to give to hellenic and middle-east civs a bit more of civilized appearence, reflecting their future historical development.
Credits go to EVERYONE who made ancient units before me.
This set contains 24 javelineers matching the 24 civs of TAM mod.
22 javelineers use maliskirmisher anim, while 2 javelineers (TAM UUs) use mongolian anim. All units have got clean nif structure, both shader and no-shader nif, and all strictly needed art files. Use maliskirmisher artdefine for xml purpose.
The package contains 2 animation folders for convenience (mali and mongolian), and 1 "anim_effects" folder to manage the different kind of javelin when they reach the opposite field, otherwise a "custom" javelin turns into a "default" javelin during its path (read HERE for more details). A detailed jav_spears_readme.txt file into "anim_effects" folder explains how to do that.
