    Hello all, for a while I have been working to make some Ethnically Diverse african units. And here is the result. Feel free to use them however you like. :) (Unfortunately, none of them have buttons; this is because of my extreme lack of skill in this area. If someone could make/find a suitible set of buttons for them I would be very thankful)
    Thanks to Laurino, these units now have buttons! Thanks, Laurino!

    Very nice (WR USE THESE!!) I have one sugjestion, the LongBowman is so heavily clothed its hard to tell he's african and the clothing is very arab looking (as you would expect it to be considering what its based on), my idea replace the head with that from say the Mali Skirmisher or some other apropriate unit, possibly also reskin the legs to be bare.

    Will you be adding fx files to these units like you did with your arabian units?

    There is no _fx version of the Archer and Spearman models because they have no teamcolor. The others have _fx versions.

    Here are some buttons for your african units;). If there's anything you don't like, tell me, I'll make adjustments.

    Thanks for the compliment! If you ever need more buttons, PM if you want, I'll make them happilly! I must have done more than 200 for TAM, so I'm getting quite fast at it;).à


    PS: If anyone reading this thread needs some buttons for their own units, feel free to ask, I love to make these...

    I've modded the unit in but it has a second spear sticking through its shoulder. Something up with the mongol weapon DDS maybe?

    What animations does the Mali/Songhay Knight use? The standard Knight.kfm?

    Edit- no matter, it's the Mongol Keshik animations. :p

    I'm having serious problems with the African Spearman unit...

    The shield is clipping the body badly, and a 2nd "Ghost Spear" is appearing next to the spearman and floating in mid-air. Am I using the wrong animation or something?

    Here's what I'm using:
    <NIF>Art/Units/African/Spearman/Africanspear.nif</NIF>
    <KFM>Art/Units/Unique/Mali/Skirmisher/MaliSkirmisher.kfm</KFM>
    <SHADERNIF>Art/Units/African/Spearman/Africanspear_fx.nif</SHADERNIF>

    Yeah, that's the wrong animation. You need to use Spearman animations :)
