    Or the gravity-manipulating hover tracks disguised as average, every-day bicycle tires...or the super-lightweight, metal-alloy, armor defensive system linked up to laser scanners...or the hypnotizing beam-ray gun made to look like a casual bike basket??? :scan:

    And to think such a weapon of mass destruction blends in with our everyday lives!

    By the way, I was wondering if you had considered this NavyDawg:

    ...I was just wondering if you'd be willing to do this at all or not?

    No, I'm not overwhelmed.:lol: I have been busy making units for my next and last expansion for Space Opera - lots of Spaceships and fighters, etc... I'll get back to this unit pack when I can. I have made a Canadian and will be making more.

    @ Gen. Rommel, I'm not quite sure what you want for the German uniform. I used a swatch of Flecktarn camo for the material. If you want a unit at civ scale to look like a person wearing the uniform in RL, it ain't gonna happen. I don't think I'll be redoing that one.

    those proposals are nice but the infantry that is not present, that would be most used I think would be Russian, either modern or USSR era

    Sorry for being a pest, but what I meant was this. Wyrm was able to get the camo to look exactly like the flecktarn's composition. Basically, this is what an ideal flecktarn would look like. If you compare it to the current camo you have on the German soldier, you'll notice that it's too light. I'm not trying to waste your time, but I personally think there's room for improvement, at least in terms of the camo. ;)

    Yeah... that was a pain to do. Actually it's SS camo.

    ^ Heh, that's funny. But no matter, in the pedia icon, it sure looks like flecktarn camo. ;)

    I could tell it was SS camo from the civpedia pic, but there's no question that the Flecktarn pattern is influenced by the SS spotted patterns. In the first instance, flecktarn has smaller spots. I imagine the best way to make the unit look 'flecktarny' at civ-scale would be to make that pattern significantly larger, kind of like how CamJH & Plotinus make scale armour (oversized, so it's noticable at civscale).

    Navydawg, if you do not mind, may I have your permission to modify your British Modern Infantry, and add the L86A1 - SA-80 Light Support Weapon?

    Hi Spacer One, I would love to have those camo paterns! They look great. Someday I hope to get Poser and work on human oonits but in the meantime I may be able to incorporate the camo in some of the other models I'm making. :)
