Discussion in 'Civ5 - Unit Graphics' started by Nomad or What, Apr 1, 2015.
Wow, that Nazgul looks great. All we need is some Orc units and we could have a pretty good Mordor!
Orcs will probably be last if at all; we already have an Orc series here with three skin colors. Some follow the Middle-earth art style, some do not; I may import Lurtz or Orc heroes but focus will be on fantasy units that are still lacking.
Units which are lacking are mages, mages, mages and mages - but not for LotR, probably.
A female mage is one of my highest priorities; I have one of a collection I will be finishing soon. Unfortunately, it is the typical "bikini armor" style *sigh* - clothed female art is so difficult to find!
Anyway, she will use animations similar to the "Gandalf" unit; here is what she will look like:
I will never understand why female mages are often barely clothes.
That unit looks very good, though.
There are some nice mages in FfH. Sadly, I am too stupid to convert them (tried this already).
Civitar has wizards already and I have the Gandalf unit; link me the mages you wish to import from Civ IV and I may convert them. Alternately, give me a screenshot or the civ name and unit from FFH; I play that mod as well and can find the unit for you.
I suppose there's nothing to stop you from making a male mage in a metal bikini...
Ach, Framed. Really not funny.
I do think it's kinda dumb how even nonhuman female mages don't wear much...
Seriously, someone do this. Even if it's just a drawing.
It's almost done; I will finish it when I return from holiday.
Wait, really? A male mage with a metal bikini?
ummmmm, no. That will never be a unit that I make; you may have to ask around for that....
This is off-topic for the Middle-earth unit thread, but since there was a discussion about additional mages I have fast-tracked the sorcerer unit. Discussion thread (and download link) is here.
Hi, Nomad or What!
Thank you for your work. I have no words. I have included some of your units in my scenarios, that are already in the v43. I hope you don't mind. Thanks for your work, looks just great!
Would it be possible to push the Fell Beast up in your queue? Hamm and I were considering using it for a custom paradrop animation.
I have mesh and textures for the Fell Beast, but no animations. I suppose I could clumsily rig it to the XCOM Skyranger or drake or something similar, but not sure how great that would look. Eventually we will have custom flying dragon animations but we aren't quite there yet.
Yeah, I'm fine with waiting for dragon animations. Awesome to hear that those are happening.
Sort of like this?
It's very WIP and I actually had to ditch this particular animation. However I am working on a flying Dragon.
I hope so, because we really need one!
Some of the BFMEII buildings have been converted into improvement graphics; they are listed in the CiV Fantasy Improvement Graphic Conversions thread. I also added the link to the thread in the OP. More to follow!
