I decided to finish this unit. So, here it is. I hope it'll come in handy to someone.
Great. What is it? ;-)
Hi utahjazz! I posted a link with the download in the Mesoamerican Conquest mod (Red Alert´s) saying it was probaly yours -then I realized this thread had just come out. Anyway, nice unit.
Very nice, utah!
a dart/javelin throwing meso-american, I think.
Looks good. I like that it is a little skinnier then many other units. Variety is good.
Great work Utah. Good to see your sticking around still(i hope). There was alot of effort that went into this unit everyone, so be thankful to Utah. Be thankful to utah period since there aren't many of us creators left.
Thanks for another wonderfull unit Utahjazz.
As said Bjornlo, the name of the weapon come from the language used by the Aztecs. And it has been recalled to the memory of Occidental Civilization when the Spaniards saw the Aztecs use this weapon against them efficiently! A good practical history lesson it was indeed! As a matter of fact, if I am not mistaken, this kind of weapon have been used by almost all culture groups in the Stone Age. Some kind of transition between the lance and the bow. A bit less dangerous against mammoths I guess.
I will personally use this unit for the Aztecs; as a replacement for Archer. Thank You very much señor Utahjazz. Very beautiful, original and interesting!
Nice unit! I might use it as a flavour unit in Anno Domini .
Very Nice...Ill be replacing the archer for either Rapa Nui or Mercosur with this one...thanx much.....
And thanx to ANY unit creaters who are still working on Civ 3, we(those players who dont see any improvement in Civ4) still need you...
This is going straight into the next version the Classic Maya Scenario.
Very nice !
Good unit !
I really like this unit, I will give it to the Mayans & Aztecs.
Wow, this is extremely well animated. Very good job!
Yeah, people like it.
Since units from you are so rare these days, it is a momentious event for the community Utah. You should be proud.
I hope I can get as good animating as you.
Sweet! We needed an atlatl unit, since this weapon was used greatly in the ancient times.
I came up with this line for anyone who is interested:
Atlatl, upgrades to Javalin Thrower, an ancient Medditarian, Bronze age skirmisher.
Javalin Thrower upgrades to Velites, an iron age Roman skirmisher
Velites upgrade to Skirmisher, a midival spear throwing unit used in Europe.
Skirmishers could upgrade to a number of things. To continue the large projectile theme, I'd go with Aaglo's Medival Mortar
Medival Mortar, upgrades to the Napolian Era Grenadier, which carries a rifle which is capable of sending out a small grenade at the enemy.
Grenadier upgrades to Mortar, which are used threwout the first world war.
Mortar upgrades to Boozoka, and is used up until the Information age.
Boozoka upgrades to TOW Infantry, which is no surprise.
If you were to continue forward, as in the case of my mod...
Tow Infantry upgrades to a Rail Infantry, armed with a railgun boozooka.
And Railgun Infantry upgrade to Blaster Infantry(Bebro's XCOM Blue Blaster), which are armed with a portable laser cannon.
Separate names with a comma.
