    The new Scenario League site looks great. :goodjob:

    When I saw in the other unit Graphics thread that there where uploaded some of Fairlines compilations I thought I should also contribute something and decided to use this thread for a first uploading of Fairlines units from the Ancient to the end of WWI :)

    Here are his latest set:

    Units for the Roman Civilwar:


    Byzantine Units:


    Byzantine Enemies:

    I can almost smell the gunpowder and hear the shaking of spears.

    I really enjoyed these units whilst playtesting civ2units AWI scenario. I almost cried when all my Stockbridge Mohicans were killed in an Iroquois counter attack :(

    I see some new British units (Foot Guards and some other). Maybe I will change them on my units.bmp before release.

    Btw, does the SL Wiki working now? My scenario is nearly ready and I would like to upload it for everyone. I´ve changed some things after McMonkeys great playtest which should make the scenario a bit more challenge.

    I hope so. :D

    Unfortunatelly one more limit of Civ2. My event file is now bigger than 100 kb (actually 104 kb). I think I have to delete most of the textblocks. :mad:

    Hi Civ2units

    The SL Wiki is now working, and we are currently updating it (i.e. rewriting the scenario pages)!

    Right now, only a few (5-10) scenario pages have been recreated, and the Utilities, Tips, Reviews are not ready yet, but otherwise you can access the Wiki (and put your new scenario there too! or ask me to do it for you if needed)

    I imagine the work will be finished (on the old files) in the coming weeks

    civ2units. Do you still need me to check the text for the correct English grammar and spelling? I do tend to rely on the spell checker a lot but if I concentrate I can get it right :lol:

    @Cyrion1:

    Thanks very much. I will try to upload the files as soon as possible. If I will have some troubles I will ask you for helping me. :goodjob:

    Unfortunatelly something has corrupted my events file. I got this message (which I never got before) when loading the savegame. I´ve copied the event files, created a new one, nothing works. The Debug mode is also deactivated

    Here´s a screenshot of what Winstupid multiplicated 7 tells me when I start the savegame.



    If someone can help me I would be very happy. I´m not so familiar with these C++ things.

    @McMonkey:

    I would be happy if you could check grammar and spelling of the textblocks. I will send you the files immediatelly after the events will working. :goodjob:

    A bit of nostalgia:

    Erwan's Units


    When I first encountered Erwan's units (last century), I thought they were the best Civ2 icons I'd ever seen. There's a sprinkling of Industrial Age units in that compilation.

    More classics, this time from BeBro:

    Bernd Brosing's Ships


    Bernd Brosing's Mediæval Units
