    Hi, Elhoim
    I have a question, why do you make Transport smaller than Caravel?

    Because I have no idea how big those transports really are ;)

    I imagined them like the ones in the movie "Saving Private Rian", and they weren´t too big.

    On a side note, they are the same size as a caravel, but the later has bigger sails ;)

    If you can give me real life sizes of both I can change them a little :)

    Ok those little boats where "Launched" from the large transports so that the troops could get to the beach since if a real troop transport got anywhere near the beach it would ground itself....... When you think transport think OIL TANKER or CARGO CARRIER

    Thanks! :D I´ll make them a little bigger, but not too much as the artwork is of the little boats instead of the large transport, so it wouldn´t be quite right to make them like battleships or carriers ;)

    Has there been any progress toward this? If not, is the stumbling block lack of time, lack of our interest, or some fundamental change that makes it difficult to do fleets in warlords?

    Thanks Elhoim.
    Looks great.

    They still look good when battling each other as fleets?

    Yeah, they do. The battles are one on one, IIRC.

    Thanks!

    Could you be a little more especific? :)

    Here are the instructions:

    For Basic and Fleets: Put the file in the CustomAssets folder in My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4, and then extract it.

    For Basic and Fleets Warlords: Put the file in the CustomAssets folder in My Games\Warlords and then extract it.

    Hope it helps!
