    It is a totally unplanned unit, made in a little more than 4 hours. I saw the models and I knew I had to make it.



    Made with no mod in mind, I guess it may perhaps find a spot in one of the Steampunk scenario, in a general fantasy mod or any fantasy scenario set in one of the egyptian craze (mid 19th, 1920s).

    There are two .ini. In one, she transforms during Fortify anim; in the other, she does it during AttackA.

    Enjoy!

    although i appreciate your unit skills i must say something very personal : the damn box - is a set of measures to keep things right, if you lost sight of the box is a real problem. i wonder how dark this world would have been without the CATSLAYER.

    what i intended to say is that women, leather, tails, masks, claws, mice and dogs do not really work together, and that's why to world is sinking...:lmao:

    I'll have to check with GenghisFarb, but this very well may be our first stripper unit.

    Thanks for the comments!

    I was about to P.M. a moderator to ask if it was okay to post this unit, but then I remembered the dozens of Amazon units, naked or half naked during all their animations. The Werecat is without either clothes or furs for merely 5 frames so I guess I'm safe. :lol:

    Yes, I thought about Cat-People too. ;-)

    The issue with morphing units is.. when to morph ?
    The cooler moment is during Fortify, so the players can see it whenever it wants. Also, the unit is really ready by the end of Fortify and is at its cooler state.
    But when an unit attacks, the fortify animation is either unplayed or cut short if too long: Here, she's about to rip her robe when she's immediately got in werecat form.
    The timing wasn't all bad and it's still obvious she's transforming so I left it like that. But I also rendered an alternative attacka, combining Fortify and AttackA, if people want to keep the transformation for AA and thus playing it uncut when the unit attacks.

    Concurred with Quinzy and Jord Kells. We need more units like this!

    Not an official policy - just the way I would adjudicate it based on discussions regarding units in a later version of Civ:

    • No obvious display of primary sex characteristics
    • No objectionable activity in any animations
    • Most were-creature transformations would rip the clothing off thus destroying it. The disrobing seems appropriate.
    Therefore the unit is okay. As is the preview.

    Just realized that together with tom2050's [post=9512821]Countess Carmilla[/post] there is now a werecat unit line / upgrade path.
