    It's done! After an unexpectedly long production period the Highwind, Jet Mode is finally complete! Now I can get to other stuff that has been on hold for the past month or so...

    The file includes 2 different victory sounds to choose from, one being that so well known victory fanfare from every final fantasy game (as far as I know).

    Here be the file:
    Highwind (Jet Mode)




    Enjoy!

    EDIT: Preview standards updated, cause I love this thing.

    Now if there was just some way to get it to change from normal mode to jet mode in game, complete with animation...

    Nicely done sir!

    Well what happened was I was going to do both modes, but Hikaro Takayama beat me to the propeller mode so I was left with the jet mode. I might have included the transformation as a fidget/ fortify animation, but that would just be something cool to add to the unit and would not be able to actually transform the unit, I don't think its possible to actually transform a unit out in the feild like that. Maybe in the apparently 'all moddable' Civ 4 a transformation would be possible, if unit creation from scratch is possible at all.

    Compliments are much appreciated! :D
