    This is the 2nd edition of my 3rd unit, the Corvette.

    The 1st edition wasn't aligned, had bleach-white sails and kinda wierd animations, so you can pretty much ignore the old version entirely now:mischief:

    Here's the file:

    Previews attached, Orthanc is back in the shipyard!:D

    I never noticed that anchor before in any of your ships.
    I have to say, that this ship looks very, very, very nice :)

    I don't remember any problems with the original Corvette, but I'm always open to improvements nonetheless! Many thanks...

    Thanks everyone.

    Yeah, the anchor's on alot of ships, it's just to-scale, so its usually pretty small, and it's black so it blends in with the dark-blue hull lines that also frequent my ships.

    Yep, the 2nd edition of the Trident is next!

    Hey, Orthanc, do you think you can make a ship for me? because I would like the Hydrofoil, if you wouldn't mind.

    Orthanc is busy. He isn't taking requests.

    A very nice ship. I like it as much as your 3rd edition sloop.

    It's good to see that your cornering of the ship market has not led to complacency Orthanc. These ships were all wonderful, wonderful units in their first incarnations and they just keep getting better!!

    FYI: I am including many of your ships in the Mughals upgrade. In fact, they are one of the reasons I've been so delayed. You've provided many options to choose from and they are all great, allowing more historical detail, civ flavouring (like with the Dutch Fluyt) and some very colourful units to be included. Thanks a million.

    :thanx:

    Thanks everyone, glad to be of service. There is unit making in civ 4 now, but customization here is still where it's at.:thumbsup:
