    After seeing Chugginator's Flavor War Elephants, I was inspired to make some of my own. All of them use (naturally) War Elephant animations. Big thanks to Chugginator for all his elephants, and for his Germanic worker, and also to Bakuel for his Andean skin, and to anyone else I may have forgotten. Feel free to use them however you wish and of course be sure to give me credit :D

    Here are six elephants made by Chugginator

    Here's another Medieval elephant made by Chamaedrys

    And now, without further adieu:

    Celtic

    Download the Celtic Elephant!

    Inca

    Download the Inca Elephant!

    North African (good for Mali, Ethiopia etc)

    Download the African Elephant!

    Mongol

    Download the Mongol Elephant!

    Native American

    Download the Native American Elephant!

    Nordic (good for all types of European civs)

    Download the Nordic Elephant!

    Perfect timing! These are going straight in! Great job, sepamu ;)

    P.S. You haven't actually linked to Cham's thread.

    Nice. I can't wait to see Native American war elephants in Ambreville's 1640AD NA mod. :)

    Looks great! I like the Mongolian Elephants leather armour :) Also you could easily make a Slavic elephant out of the Nordic one (I used the same nif model for the Germanic and Slavic workers, just different textures) if you wanted.

    There's also an elephant in the EDU mod that could be used for Rome/Greece (it is mounted by the charioteer).

    Looks great! :goodjob: I like the textile designs on the side of the Inca, North American and North African ones. And the hand print on the North American one of course. :)

    These'll be perfect in BtS since we won't have to actually create new units for all the flavors! Nice work!

    Maybe not but theres always room for improvement DPII. For example if Firaxis lumps all the native civs flavor units toghether....

    BTW doesn't this remind you of those cool elephents you made for Civ3?

    Read here, point 3.0: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=229557

    So basically in the XML you can add a style for every single civ, if you wanted.

    BTW, thanks everybody for the kind words! :goodjob:

    That's what I'm planning to do. It seems the best way to do it.

    EDIT: Would anyone be willing to create buttons for these?

    Awesome!

    Just throwing this out, maybe for diversity you could change the native american war Elephant to look more like a mammoth. Just out of nostalgia for the a Civ2 scenario that could give mammoths to native americans from a goody hut.

    thanks for the diversity.

    Wow, really nice flavour and great quality!!!
    Is it possible to add them in a simple manner to the regular game or another mod (modular loading maybe? but not sure how that works...)?

    The Inca elephant has been causing a multiplayer crash see here.
    It seems fine in singleplayer though!

    Took me a while to get the rider NOT to sit on a 45 degree angle around the elephants neck.
    People never seem to point you to the right kfm file for some reason.
    Cheers for the elephant though, I did mangle the rider texture to make it blond :p

    No, at the time that was the right animation to use, but good ol' Firaxis changed the animation with BtS. And isn't this thread a little, er, dead?
