    Kinboat, this unit is really superb. Thank you for taking the time to make so many beautiful units for us.

    Finally a great unit that makes it possible to use artillery as an offensive weapon and not just for defending strategic bottlenecks - I'll give mine the zone of control flag to use it as an attack support unit in the centre of the mellee; and bombardment over one or so tiles. :)

    A slow yet highly effective weapon at close range :D

    ---

    One question, though... (hate to B a pester, but) why is the cross white ? :confused: It is true the Germans used the white one, yet that was changed after the battle of France, at a time this Panzer did not exist yet... the cross ought to be black, with one white and one black frame around it...

    Awesome, Kinboat!

    I used the Multi-tool to add this unit before you had even finished it so I could have it in my current game. I am in Europe and the Germans are in Asia, essentially next door neighbours. I'm going to have to risk an early war so I don't have to face these Sturm Tigers!

    Great work, as usual.

    The Sturmtiger looks great. Finally we there's a unit that's close to being self-propelled artillery. What will your next project be?

    I response to the cross... um, I don't know :) I could say that on such a small scale the little white line wouldn't show up... but I really wasn't thinking too much. My original model had the cross as the civ-specific color but when I switched to the camo pattern I just made the cross white and didn't think about it sorry... As to my next project I'm uploading the Japanese Kha-Go Tank in a moment... then I'm going to try and finish up my Lancia Armored car before the weekend.

    Hi, Kinboat!!! You have done a great work again, master!
    About the German Cross, here is the Moray model of my STUG IV cross (.mdl archive). If you want, you can use it for future german tanks projects :king: .
    Bye!!!:goodjob:

    You just have to have the unit in game, the folder, and the INI have the same name.
    Call it Sturm Tiger.

    Yeah, you can rename it anything you want (Sturm Tiger works fine) and make sure the folder and the INI file are called the same thing like Level says

    Kinboat, that is a really good looking unit. The little crane-arm lifting shells is too cool.

    No one has made a good motorcycle unit yet. Like a german recon battalion scooter with a sidecar and machine gun.
    Just food for thought... ;)

    Top-notch work! Thanks. :)

    Sounds interesting but I have yet to do a decent human model... the Rider wouldn't require too much animation so I might try it but my list keeps growing and growing and I'm bogging myself down trying to do every suggestion I come across :)

    Well heck, I tried this last evening. Changed name to Sturm Tiger, checked that files, and .ini where all identical... and the unit crashes when selected to build. Now I do seem to be having this prob w/ re-named units, so the obvious next step is to change names back but I am stumped as to why the name changes are not working. I am updated to Civ3 ver. 1.29 and all
    Ideas oh great and wise ones...:confused:

    Another pedia entry, hope its of some use to someone.

    #PRTO_PanzerMorser
    ^
    ^
    ^The first truly effective self propelled mortar unit, the [PanzerMorser SturmTiger] can bombard targets two squares distant with rocket high-explosive shells. The Sturmtiger has no attack value but a defense comparable to that of tanks. The unit is slow to move but ideal for offensive attack support.
    ^
    ^A city needs $LINK<oil=GOOD_Oil> in its $LINK<Strategic Resource=GCON_ResourcesS> box to build a Sturmtiger.
    #DESC_PRTO_PanzerMorser
    ^
    ^
    ^The Sturmtiger was a fierce destructive mean fighting machine, it was an extremely powerful, potent and fearsome weapon. This armored fighting vehicle was armed with an RW 61 mortar-projector rocket launcher which had a caliber of 38cm of enormous demolishing power.
    ^
    ^The first Sturmtigers were committed to the street fighting against polish rebels during the Warsaw uprising in August 1944 and instantly destroyed a large number of enemy-occupied buildings with single rockets which immediately brought the uprising to an abrupt halt!. High-angle fire from these heavy weapons inflicted major damage on enemy artillery and infantry positions. Allied forces in the sector which came under fire from a Sturmtiger were paralyzed for several hours after being hit by this weapon, it spread terror and confusion among the enemy.
    ^
    ^The 38cm 4581 rocket high-explosive shells fired by the RW 61rocket projector had a length of 1.54 meters and weighed 350 kilograms of which 125 kilograms was the explosive charge. The rockets were dangerous weapons whose effect on morale--especially at night--was enormous. For several seconds following impact the sky became fire-red, the shockwave followed seconds later and then an ear-shattering thunderclap. The effect in the target area was so paralyzing that the enemy required hours to recover from the shock. Each Sturmtiger could carry thirteen rockets which constituted a considerable amount of firepower. Thus, the Sturmtiger was a rocket-firing new war machine development which was as cruel as it was effective.

    Sorry I didn't reply earlier J C Woodman... must have missed the post... As W.i.n.t.e.r says you only need to change the folder and INI to the same name... You can change the name of the other files but then you need to change them as they are listed in the INI file which is more work. And Kemal69 must really like my units :) This is the second civilopedia he's made today :) Thanks.
