    Hello all, I'm looking to port the Unique Unit Zero from Civ V to Civ VI to behave similar to the Mustang for the American Civ but for Japan.

    I can't seem to understand the mod applications enough to do this myself, it seems pretty straightforward (ie: take the unit model from Civ Vi, the file is already out there for download, and create a new UU for Japan with it.)

    I think the unit stats should be the same as the American Mustang, but should be given the same strength as a normal fighter and one additional range (100 and 5 respectively).

    I would do it myself, but I can't for the life of me figure it out. I would gladly make it worth your while to have this mod made.

    Definitely open to suggestion as to stats and what would make it a fair addition to the game.

    Thanks for your time.

    Alright, I'm not sure if the mods are okay with this or not, but I'm willing to put a bounty up to have this mod made.

    You make the Mod it's worth USD$50 to me.

    Again, thanks for your time.

    Zero belongs to Imperial Japanese Navy. designed specificially for Carrier operation.

    If there are separate class of land-based aircraft and carrier based aircraft then i'd go for Zeroes

    The Imperial Japanese Army however. never have a chance to use Zeroes. they flew Hayabusa (Peregrine/Falcon)

    I might go for it. or not. but surely there are many more Zeroes than Yamato.

    The A6M was originally tested over Manchuria early in what was the Sino-Japanese war before Japan was brought into WWII.

    But you are right in that there were more Zeros than Yamato. In fact there were over 11 thousand Zeros produced in different model numbers, and only three known ships to be given the Yamato hull (two battleships and one aircraft carrier with a less than admirable service). The Zero is and was the symbol of Japan's coming of age, not just air superiority early in the war (and pride in the accomplishments of a people). It was a great many world firsts in the field of aviation, but Allied propaganda has muddied the waters around the story of the Zero. Contemporary sources (design and testing data from both sides) show that it was truly a wonder of engineering.

    I am a bit of a nut on this plane.:crazyeye:
