    By editing the Units.artdef file. I think for most people it would be simpler to wait for Firaxis to release the mod tools. It's quite fiddly work working directly on the file.

    Although with the changes to movement having a unit shoot 3 tiles is probably overpowered.. Maybe just stronger archers?

    Would you be upload a version which only adds the rifleman unit? i've been fiddling around with it for my own uses, but I'd like a version which just has the rifleman if possible. Thank you!

    I think what I'll do is release these as separate mods for each unit. For now just edit MOAR_Units_Data.xml to just contain the following:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <GameData>
        <Types>
            <Row Type="UNIT_RIFLEMAN" Kind="KIND_UNIT"/>
        </Types>
        <Units>
            <Row UnitType="UNIT_RIFLEMAN" BaseMoves="2" Cost="350" AdvisorType="ADVISOR_CONQUEST" BaseSightRange="2" ZoneOfControl="true" Domain="DOMAIN_LAND" FormationClass="FORMATION_CLASS_LAND_COMBAT" Name="LOC_UNIT_RIFLEMAN_NAME" Description="LOC_UNIT_RIFLEMAN_DESCRIPTION" PurchaseYield="YIELD_GOLD" PromotionClass="PROMOTION_CLASS_MELEE" Maintenance="4" Combat="64" PrereqTech="TECH_RIFLING" MandatoryObsoleteTech="TECH_SATELLITES"/>
        </Units>
        <UnitUpgrades>
            <Row Unit="UNIT_RIFLEMAN" UpgradeUnit="UNIT_INFANTRY"/>
        </UnitUpgrades>
        <UnitAIInfos>
            <Row UnitType="UNIT_RIFLEMAN" AiType="UNITAI_COMBAT"/>
            <Row UnitType="UNIT_RIFLEMAN" AiType="UNITAI_EXPLORE"/>
            <Row UnitType="UNIT_RIFLEMAN" AiType="UNITTYPE_MELEE"/>
            <Row UnitType="UNIT_RIFLEMAN" AiType="UNITTYPE_LAND_COMBAT"/>
        </UnitAIInfos>

    Yes, I've been thinking of ideas for trying to get a second UU for each civ. The tricky part is that finding units that I can make by recombining parts of existing units (until the mod tools are released which may well be imminent).

    Some ideas I had for the next batch of UUs:

    England:
    Longbowman (replaces Crossbowman) maybe anti-cavalry and/or defensive bonuses

    Spain:
    Jinete (replaces Horseman) anti-cavalry?
    Galleon would be good but what to do with it. A sea only Trader replacement giving extra gold would be cool but maybe tricky to do.

    France:
    Gendarme (heavier/stronger version of Knight)

    Brazil:
    Either Bandeirantes or Pracinha would be doable.

    Egypt:
    Some kind of early warship would be good I think.

    Japan:
    Could do other units in Samurai/ethnic armour e.g. Yari, Archer or Arquebusier type unit. Or maybe a Warrior Monk unit using Scout animations could be done.

    India:
    One of the ethnic styles is called Mughal so something of that era. Would need to be different to the Mamluk.

    Kongo:
    Perhaps a modern Republican Guard unit?

    Rome:
    Maybe a stronger catapult?

    Struggling a bit for additional Russia, Scythia and Norway UUs. Open to suggestions!

    Additional non-unique units ideas:

    Cuirassier - would be good to fill out Knight -> Tank. Tricky to do art-wise as I haven't been able to get unmounted armours to work on mounted units yet.

    More on that here.

    I have run into a few limitations with the attachment system - at least working with the Units.artdef directly - may be resolved by whatever tool Firaxis release.

    1. Using unmounted armours for mounted units and vice-versa doesn't work which limits options quite a lot. If you try and mount the Hoplite armour for example it stays in the Spearman position with Spearman animations. This may be resolved when we actually get some guidance/tools from Firaxis. Hats and weapons can be swapped between mounted/unmounted OK as far as I've seen.
    2. Not all elements can be recoloured via XML. I guess this is because some textures have the alpha set up to allow base colour through and some don't. If it was me I would make pretty everything have at least some element of alpha so that the colour can be changed simply via XML. At the moment a lot of things like hats and cloaks can't be recoloured which limits options.
    3. Even swapping armours between mounted units can not work well sometimes. For example I tried using the Ancient Great General armour for the Hetairoi using a Horseman base and the arms we're not rigged right and looked kind of weird.

    Still it's fun playing around. I was pleased that swapping the Camel in for a Horse worked even if the baggage on top can't be replaced with a saddle. Once we can add in our own Armors, Hats and Weapons then the fun will really begin! :)

    Really nice job there, I love the possibilities. But the Rifleman needs a hat - maybe the tall shako from the English Redcoat would work? Definitely not the tricorne, but since we don't seem to have any sort of kepi in the base game, the shako would be the closest equivalent. Thank you for your work and looking forward to updates on that. :)

    Is it possible to change the animation of an unit? For example, is it possible to make the Pikeman using the animation of Spearman?

    Loose ideas for units:

    Scythia - some sort of mounted noblewomen? Though there is a distinct lack of mounted female models
    Russia - Streltsy (17th century foot musketmen), although they were disbanded by Peter personally. Alternatively a heavy Boyar / Druzhina cavalry, armed with swords and axes and a round shield.
    Norway - maybe a Skald, a unique Scout, like a wandering poet?
    India - +1 On the Mughal horsemen/heavy cav
    Rome: Triarii maybe? Or an Equite cavalry. Maybe something from the later era, like a Palatini-style horse guardsmen?
    Japan: if only vehicles could be modified, I'd go with a Mikasa or Yamato battleship

    Also +1 on the Cuirassier. Most needed unit right now to fill in a stylistic gap.

    Yeah I tried a few things but nothing felt quite right. I could use one of the Redcoat or Cavalry ones but then it would look to similar to the Garde Imperiale but might try it and see.

    Yeah that should be quite a simple one. Just copy the Spearman UnitMember data and switch the Armor to Pikeman. The only complication is that you'd have to switch it for all the cultural variants - so it would be 6 one-line changes rather than one. The current list of graphical Cultures is NorthernEuropean, Mediterranean, Mughal, NorthAfrican, SouthAfrican, SouthAmerican, EastAsian, Barbarian.

    I'm still not very sure how all this is hanging together. I initially thought that the attachment system would work by allowing you to attaching meshes to a single skeleton & animation set, but some of things I've tried suggest that some elements such as Armors and Bodies have their own skeletons.

    Regarding the Boyar, Afaik we have no animation of Cavalry fighting with sword-like weapon yet. Does the Great General have a fighting anim?
