    unit is game tested

    here are the previews (they run faster in-game):

    (default - fortify - attack (x2) - victory - fortify - attack - death)



    the pentagon parts on the ball and the shirt are civ-specific

    I made the shirt like this so when you are civ color red, you get the tunic of Feyenoord! :D.

    I didn't do shin guards because whatever I tried, it wouldn't look good ...

    and if you dind't notice, in the death animation, the ball flattens ...:)

    I included sounds too, the death and attack are modified + unified sounds of normal civ units. the others are taken from other units and I didn't modify those.

    oh well, ENJOY

    HERE is the download

    Pretty cool! This must be one of the funniest units ever made for Civ!
    Now, if I could find a place for it in my mod... hmm... :)

    Although the victory animation could have been some acrobatic ;)

    Considering we have an actual soccer player unit... :p

    But I like the explorer. He has a sword he can wave around! Maybe for the soccer player horde though...

    Wonderful and original unit! As others have said I'm not sure where to use it, but considering how well animated it is I really want to find a place! Good job and nice attention to detail.

    Now that's a clever idea for a unit. The animations look really good and are already a big improvement over your last unit. Of course in the Victory he ought to pull his shirt over his head and go running about, but that might be a bit fiddly to make.
