    Well, first of all, I have some people to thank again. I want to thank Kinboat again. I forgot to mention this with the last units I released, but he helped me with creating the smoke effect for the gun. Also, I have to give a big thank you to Aluminium, the CFC unit shrinker. My last units were simply too big, so he was kind enough the resize these units before I released them. (He also said that he would shrink the last units I released.) He also reversed the fortify animations to create victory animations. Thank you very much.

    This may be something I've suggested before but (except for the tail) the horse seems motionless in the attack - would it look better if it shifted its weight, moved its head, etc? It seems like the horse would be moving around if you were jabbing people with a lance right past its neck (and vice versa!).
    Just something you might consider in future units.

    Question: How would the Lancer fit into the existing Cavalry line in Civ3?

    Two phvxinq awesome units.

    Lancer's going in as a pre-Cavalry, post-knight unit.

    WNAR's going in as Apache/Navaho UU in 31OCM..

    The lancer uniform is more 19th century. So you could use it at the same time as cavalry, but for reduce cost and the only requirement is horse

    Sounds good. Make it a tad weaker and cheaper.. but still useful.

    Very nice units. I love the "clean" look of your units, utahjazz7. They fit very well in Civ3.

    I thought that lances and other polearms were obsolete by the 19th century?

    For European cavalry, lances had almost disappeared during the 18th century. They came back again during the Napoelonic wars, and then were used during the 19th century, and still in WWI.
