    This unit could probably win the most-time-taken to make a singular requested unit hands down :sad:

    Anyway, This is a "generic" Spearman unit, requested by Stormrage, to better match the "barbaric" looking Swordsman, Archer and Warrior which come with Civilization 3.
    So, here is the unit:

    There have been many, many problems with this unit, mostly relating to various parts of the guy's body (knees, mostly) coming through the kilt and/or ground, which it still does. Any attempts at changing this seem to bring about even more of such problems, and it had turned into quite a headache for me, so I decided to render the final, "infected" animation (the Death animation), and release as-is. However, I am also releasing the Poser files separately. I'm going to release all of the files, too, just in case anyone wants to make additional animations, or something :)

    I think, this unit can be used, at least by me, as a generic-tribal spearman for Central and Western European civs. If you could make this one with blonde hair and beard, he could be used as a tribal spearman for North European/Scandinavian and Slavic/Rus civs.

    You are reading my mind, cause I was planning to make tribal-generic units for all civs. I like how does your unit look and will use him widely in my mods. Thank you very much ! :)

    Thanks, Sandris :)

    I think I'm going to use him for either a Dacian, a Celt or an Iberian in my Greek scenario (or, if I'm running out of stuff for any of them, then "all of the above"!)

    Hot frickin dog! This is exactly what I needed for my mod. It's going in immediately. (Well, as soon as the kids go to bed. ;))

    This is a Very Much needed Unit Virote...A Barbaric Spearman to match the early CIV Units really completes the early game units better. I am very sure this unit will be added to many games :goodjob:

    I noticed that the Run animation is set at 45 Flc speed. I am sure you wanted that set to 66 flc speed to match the .amb sound file.
    Also the Death is set at 56 and the Fortify set at 72. I recommend changing both to 66 flc speeds to match the Spearman sounds used.

    I am sending you some pcx files in a PM that you might want to use...Remade Larger Civilopedia Larhe and Small Icons and a CIV Specific units_32.pcx.

    Looks good, but primitive (pre-civilization) tribles didn't have special military equipment - only hunting. Shield I thing is unnecessary: it's fantastic. :)

    Thanks, guys

    When it allows me to upload files again (seems to keep giving me an error...), I'll add in updated .pcx icons, made by Vuldacon. Thanks again, man!

    EDIT: Actually, I'll upload the entire unit again, I'm just figuring out the speeds :)

    EDIT2: Done :)

    Virote, your unit is great. Much better than the Firaxis' original unit!

    He will replace the Tribal Guardian unit in my Far Horizons mod...I never liked the graphics I was using anyway. THis is far better.

    I'm guessing this will be a unit for Norsica.
