Rifleman with Melee Combat Animations 2016-10-05

Rifleman with Melee Combat Animations

  1. SaibotLieh
    This is a modification of the rifleman animation set. I've added the pikeman melee combat animations to the set, resulting in riflemen who, when attack in close combat, will fight back with a mounted bayonet.
    No extra files or modifications are needed as long as the directory structure is unchanged. The rifleman_fx.nif is just a copy of the rifleman.nif, therefore it can be deleted if the CIV4ArtDefines_Unit.xml is changed accordingly.
    If the riflemen also should engage in close combat when fighting range units, the bActAsRanged entry of the rifleman should be changed to <bActAsRanged>0</bActAsRanged>. However, this way the only time when the riflemen shoot will be when they do a first strike.
    See also my similar modification for the Infantry here.
