    Well the thread title gives the gist of it, this was yet another request, yet again it proved very exciting to make. This ship is designed to be a Frigate replacement/advancement for Meso-American civs, it's name means "Crocodile" in Nahuitl (the Aztec's language apparently), which seemed appropriate, croc's being such powerful aquatic critters.

    Here it be:
    Cipactli




    As you can see (well, pretty much just aaglo can), I went kinda nuts with the image mapping on this one.:D

    A very nice flavour unit. One of these days I'm eventually going to get around to creating my own flavour mod with all flavour units. This is certainly going in.

    What do you mean "pathetic"?
    I think this is very good "what if the meso-americans were in par with europeans in naval exploration" -unit.
