Nice job elhoim! A mod worth installing.
Interesting idea for a mod, but what about the dinky little cities and the huge king kong like warriors with their menacing clubs?
You can change them with the CivScale tool...
My idea is to keep the the game as original as possible, "fixing" the dowscale that happened with modern ships...
The carrier should be larger, aircraft carriers are absolutely massive. They dwarf everything else.
The problem with larger units is that they clip with the adjacent ones...
It is nice, but though others like the battleship, the carrier is always the largest ship in a fleet. Since the overlap is a problem, could the option be to shrink the others. Though it is good to see a better comparison between the destroyer and battleship, the galley is still quite large. Maybe the way to go would to make the larger ships single unit images and the smaller ones multiple as are displayed for land units. Say, 5 work boats for a unit, 4 trans ports, 3 galleons, 3 frigates - galleys - carvels, 2 destroyers, 1 battleship (smaller) and 1 carrier. Subs, since they don't distinuquish between disel and nuke, should be single and med large since often operate alone and can be sizable.
That would be great, but I don´t know if water combat accepts multiple units... I´ll see what I can do...
Bump for new version! Check first post!
Does the old version work with 1.61, too? Thanks
Yep! It works perfectly!
Great! Thanks for your info!
Had long time no look into the xml files... but...
that the ships look into different directions has something to do with the direction rotation value, cant tell more from here, but i will have a look into your formations file and see what i can do
just a quick idea not sure if possible, how about making destroyers in 3's reduce the size of carrier/battleship and add either 1 or 2 destroyers as escorts
That´s beyond my abilities...
And I like one ship Battleships... Perhaps I´ll make the destroyers to go by pairs...
Thank for your advice!
Sorry, kinda new at this, but I dont see the CustomAssets folder.Can u direct me?
Yep, it in My Documents (well, not mine´s, your´s ), My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization 4 by default. So, without joke is My Documents/My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization 4. There it is the customassets folder. Hope it helps!
Elhoim, great mod, many thanks for making it. However I'm getting a few strange things from it. First off as you can see in the attached pic this working boat is lacking all textures. And my galleons, though playing Greece, are sometimes red. I have not played enough to see all the other boats. I have a fresh install with the latest patch and no other mods installed. Can you shed any light on this?
Wow, that´s really strange, as I didn´t change any files that would affect that... I´ve only changed the scale of the boats in v1 (which seems the one you are using) and in v2 the number of boats and the volume of some sounds...
Try this save to see if there are any more ships with problems...
