    Napoleonica: Powder Smoke over Europe

    About a couple of months ago I`ve started to play Firaxis` Napoleonic Europe scenario.
    While playing I began to have a feeling of missing something ...

    Download French units
    Download Russian units
    Download Prussian units
    Download British and Danish units
    Download Austrian and Turkish units
    Download Dutch and Swedish units
    Download Italian and Neapolitan units
    Download Spanish and Portuguese units

    Command and inspire your troops with military marches

    Comments:
    - First of all, I would like to thank Kinboat, utahjazz7, Plotinus, Steph, Micaelus, CamJH and many others whose figures, props, animations, software, manuals helped me to make the present unit pack.
    - animations used for the present pack are the same as my previously made animations for these types of units.
    - Taking in account the fact that military uniforms were changed for about 3-5 times within Napoleonic wars period, especially for infantry, I had to choose which period to take. Thus, I chose to make unit lines of the Later Napoleonic wars, circa 1810-1815, 1812-1815.
    - Also, I hadn`t needed to use absolutely all unit types to play the current Napoleonic scenario.
    - If somebody will get ready to make new Napoleonic mod or scenario I could help in extending my unit lines with new military types, new countries or even to make Early Napoleonic complete unit lines.
    - If somebody wants to make the same units, it`s absolutely OK and it`s not a problem. That`s just my vision on Napoleonic units and I`m sure that somebody else could make them even better.

    EDIT from June 27, 2009

    I was the first one to download them all (stumbled upon them in the database), and all I can say is: Didn't expect that. Not the era, not the amount. Outstanding.

    I love that you included the green jacket British rifleman. Now I can have adventures with Sharpe!

    Very nice!

    I will definitely make a scenario. I started one a long time ago, but never finished it, due to lack of units.

    Of course, if you want to expand it a bit, I will not object :).

    Some Rhine conferacy or Polish units could be useful for instance, but it seems you have everything else covered.

    Anyway, I'll need some time to digest this.

    :eek: You're presence was limited and I was worried I wouldn't see many more units from you. Then you come out with one of the largest, most useful, and epically civ spanning packs I've ever seen. Awesome!:goodjob:
    For those of us (me) who aren't so familiar with the make up of a Napoleonic-era military, could someone label what each unit is?

    But, that's obvious!

    And they are all properly named inside the rar.

    And I'm just checking all of them, they are PERFECT.

    I can't find any critics to do.

    The modelling of all the uniform is perfectly accurate for this period.

    Well, I fought of including Polish and Rhine Confederacy units in the pack.
    I think it won`t be the problem to make them too while I`m still on the Napoleonic wave. :D

    Gary, I know how poor look units at a Civ3-scale in comparison to what they are in Poser, but we must go forward. Don`t give up. ;)

    No, they were used only until early 18th century.
