    The Aliens are invading!

    This Alien comes with his Pulse Energy Gun to Blast and Kill his enemies. You can also Airdrop the Alien with a Spaceship that Beams him down.

    This Unit also comes with all image files for the "Alien Invasion" Great Wonder and the "Alien Transport Station" Improvement.



    Alien Preview gif
    Note: different flc speeds prevented adding the Run with this gif but the Alien steps from and to the Default flc very well.
    Default-Fidget-Default-Fortify-Attack-Victory-Default-Fortify-Attack-Death


    Alien Run gif
    The Run is separate here due to flc speed difference.


    Alien Airdrop gif


    Included Files:
    Civilopedia AlienLarge.pcx, AlienSmall.pcx, Alien_units_32.pcx
    Alternate and Extra Images
    Alien Invasion Great Wonder
    Alien Transport Station Improvement
    Adjusted .ini file

    Animations (flcs): Alien_Airdrop.flc, AlienDefault, AlienRun, AlienFortify, AlienAttack,
    AlienFidget, AlienDeath, AlienVictory.

    Sounds: Alien_Airdrop.wav, AlienRun.wav, AlienFortify.wav, AlienAttack.wav, AlienFidget.wav,
    AlienDeath.wav, AlienVictory.wav.

    Remade the Default Flc to use Offsets so the Unit is seen on the Bottom Right Game Unit Window Box Better.

    All files have been Game Tested

    I made the Attack Blast so it works with a 1 tile Ranged Attack or with no Ranged Attack.

    I made Laser Beam and Laser Ball attacks but they caused problems with Ranged Attack and No Ranged Attack that takes place in Game.

    You can Download the Alien zip file Here

    Interesting idea! Good Aliens are hard to come by despite so many great units made.

    This is one of the strangest, funniest and most original units I've seen. Great work!

    Meant to comment about this unit sooner, but got distracted while playtesting it - on my Old West map, no less (Cowboys vs. Aliens, anyone? heh) where it looks just great, particularly the flash! ray gun attack.

    Kudos, Vuldy - another great unit that would seem at first to have limited use, but actually opens up all sorts of cool possibilities!

    I just knew he had a gun stashed somewhere in the Winnebago.

    Great unit!

    Greetings Blue Monkey and everyone. I'm amazed that there is still so much activity in Civ III and CCM, ten years or so after the fact. I'm busy trying to assist Civinator with his latest take on CCM. Nice to be remembered. :thumbsup:Take care.

    assumed ı had posted , but anyhow . Cool by the looks of it even if not downloaded yet . Do people have time to develop a whole line , making this the "warrior" to be followed by spears and the lot ?

    If an alien 'pack' is what you're looking for r16, I recommend that you check out Supa's "Selenites". This fella, with his advanced weaponry, might upgrade from those...

    thanks for the suggestion . ı have that already , they could be used up as one single AI's initial units . They somehow don't feel as capable of going to Alfa Centuari or coming here for that matter .

    Oh man, I love him. I have to find a way to put this into a mod somehow.

    I Updated the Alien to correct the Attack Flc and Sound. This prevents the Attack Sound from playing again when the Alien stops attacking as well as playing as the Alien Dies.

    Thought I had the Attack Flc and Sound working well but found it was playing again as the Alien died.
