    This is a mini pack, one era. For the Mississippians. I may expand on it, adding Choctaw or Cherokee units, and maybe adding a early or later Mississippian era (feel free to post post suggestions here, or in my WIP thread)

    Big thanks to Tom and Ares who without their help this pack may have sat on my PC for another year. I especially like the Archer victory sound, which adds a bit of flavor.

    Some info/comments:
    Birdmen were thought to be shaman of the Mississippians, because their civilization disapeared before the Europeans arrival the only information is from artwork or remains. The Mississippians did have metal workings, and were agricultural, building mount pyramids, this is all quite unique for North America. The warriors have either bronze armor or weapons, except the birdman who has a atassa, which is a wooden sword, this weapon is found in both North and South America, as well as the Caribbean.

    Excellent! The Birdman especially! :goodjob:

    Also, we truly are living in a wonderful era when 4 units can be considered a mini-pack :D

    I remember 5 or 6 years ago when I would be excited for a single unit from Kinboat or UtahJazz, I think Sandris spoiled us and raised the bar.

    Thank you. All your units are great addition to civ3. I have plan to make some scenario about Age of Discovery and this will be useful. Thank you again.

    :woohoo: :clap:
    These guys are the new generation of units and can replace (or to be a very nice addition to) the Native American units from Kinboat :bowdown:.
    Thank you very much, Shiro! :)

    Thank you, Shiro! These are much needed. I'm spoiled for choice in the ancient to medieval eras when it comes to European units, but good quality units for the Americas are really lacking... This is a great start!

    Cheers

    The birdman is really cool, I am surprised you didn't make a fidget with him raising the head.

    I just want to say Shiro that your work continues to improve and impress me. I thought I'd drop by and say congratulations for a job well done.
