I tried my hand at unit creation again after drooling over some of Paradox's EU:IV unit models, and I came up short again. I did manage to make it to assigning the template's skeleton to the new model, this time. Anyway I attempted to put the right-most unit in the picture here onto a rifleman template following Wolfdog's and Deliverator's tutorials. I used the decimate function on the model pretty hard to get the vertice count down to something more reasonable for Civ 5, got it lined up pretty well, and transferred bone weights. That's supposedly the hard part right? But NexusBuddy stumps me on all fronts . The attached zip contains my last .blend file (from v2.77) and diff, normal, and spec textures for both the unit and the gun. Maybe someone will be interested in a job already partly done!
