    Yay he's back!!! :)

    Looking forward to the Japanese units personally, hoping they're still in the pipeline.

    Awesome, your work is really high quality, and adds great flavor to the South East Asian civs

    Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Bakuel is back :D Been waiting for the second coming of Bakuel... So excited. I really don't mean to pressure you. I was wondering... Will the Japanese units be coming sometime soon..? :) I'm sorry, I'm just really excited to see Yayoi goodness and stone crossbowmen, which I did discover actually existed now.

    I found some rather interesting pictures of Japanese Grenadiers aboard ships. Throwing the bombs by ropes, rather than throwing the bomb by hand.

    Looks great. Any possibility on doing naval units? "Navies of Asia"

    What exactly do you feel is still missing in terms of Asian naval units? There are plenty on CFC already, and even more in RI (that I just didn't feel like releasing separately). I'd say Indian subcontinent and Far East are already covered quite well.

    Well, I can't speak for others, but I do know that in the Industrial Era and onward, I do get quite bored of the generic type ships and such. I get that it is historically accurate, but I can't help but wish that the ships and everything of the Industrial Era onward were a bit more flavored... Like Imagine an Asian inspired destroyer or Battleship or Biplane. It would look great. In a show I enjoy, The Legend of Korra, they have East Asian style battleships.

    I was thinking more along the lines of of Bugis and Malay warships in the Age of Sail. It is difficult to find good models, but they're out there. One book has some good pictures: Zeeroof en Zeeroofbestrijding in de Indische archipel
    Here are some links: https://sangrajalaut.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/kapal-layar.jpg

    I have more elsewhere if you are interested.

    I am indeed. These sources can be useful if I decide to make/find some ships for RI for that region.

    Okay, let me know if you do. I would rather not use these message boards to communicate that information though.

    I know this is a small, slower community now Bakuel, but I hope you haven't given up working on those units. Trust me..they would be greatly appreciated.

    Seems the Aceh pack download gone, anyone know if the other packs are also gone? Is the link just broken?

    Update: I see Xyth was kind enough to post the packs earlier in the thread, I wonder if the download links could be updated for everyone if thats possible. Makes things easier for people. Not me as I have the units, just in general.
