    My promise to remake the Russian Shock Infantry for Fox Mccloud and Steph has now been forefilled. No Russian Coat this time, as one other person had requested. I think this guy is pretty good and I will probably include him in my mod. Next up is one more Russian, A Holy Hand Grenade, and then a Turk that actually works in game.

    Good, I think it's your best unit so far, only the death is a bit strange, as the guy seems to "levitate" a bit

    Its based on the unit of the same name from Rise of Nations actually, its not a real world uniform I don't believe. Thanks for asking Winter..:)

    I'm working on a real world Russian Soldier right now actually.

    Thanks for the kind words as always la_dav.

    "Da, Comrade! I shall Menacingly brandish my PpSh burp gun at you without actually firing it!"

    Most things are good about this unit, except that there is no muzzle flash. Really, you ought find out how to do these in poser. Please.

    yeah, it's really easy: just grab the muzzleflash prop that Kinboat made (it's in with his other Poser stuff), and parent it to the end of your gun.... Then have it at 1% scale until you want it to become visible, (which would be every other frame), at which point you set the scale back to whatever looks right for a unit that size.... that's how I did the gunflash for the Al Bhed Machina Hunter.

    Other than that, good unit.

    I guess I could make a muzzle flash attack for the two russians, shouldn't take that long, but I always have had problems using the muzzleflash, thats why I haven't been..

    Wel, it is unusable without it. All of your gunpowder units are.

    You have to keyframe every frame of the animation of the gunflash prop (i.e. frame 1 scale = 1%, frame 2 scale = X% (whatever fits the unit), frame 3 scale = 1 %, etc. That's exactly how I did the attack for the Al Bhed Machina hunter. The key is to have the flash prop parented to the gun prop (use the Heirarchy editor, and drag the gunflash up and drop it on the gun to do so), and the flash will follow the gun, with the alternating frames creating the proper autofire strope FX.

    Goldflash: Actually, I could fix Sword's 19th century rifle units by C&P some gunsmoke animations (the same ones I used for the Mithra Ninja's attack anim and the fixes I made to the American Conquests Conversions that Steph did).

    I have like I think five musket and rifle using guys totalled together, the Japanese, Ancient Egyptian, and the three indias. You could do it Hikaro if you want to, but is it really worth it?

    Muzzle flash is very, very important :) Otherwise he looks like he is just playing with the gun :)

    :thanx:

    This is better than your last unit. My only request is that you also add a victory animation. I have a sound for the victory from the unit sound's thread.
