    If you are in need of a Zombie Mortician or Mortician Coffin that can UnEarth anywhere on your Map, these Combination Units are what you need :)

    I made these units to both go together for use with the Mortician.

    The Mortician Coffin is the same as the Black Coffin I uploaded but it is set up to Fit the Mortician inside and is at a slightly different camera angle.
    It can be used separately but is intended as an Immobile Unit that is enslaved by the Mortician.

    I made All New Sounds and included several different Civilopedia images with different colored backgrounds to choose fromsuch as a White Background for those how prefer it for the Large images.





    Previews:
    Note that the gif Previews all use the same palette and same speed.
    The Units use two different palettes and the Flc speeds are all different so the Units appear much better in game :)


    Included Mortician Files:
    Civilopedia MorticianLarge.pcx and MorticianSmall.pcx,
    Mortician_units_32.pcx,

    Animations (flcs):
    MorticianDefault,
    MorticianRun,
    MorticianFortify,
    MorticianReact, (for Fortify and Victory)
    MorticianAttack,
    MorticianDeath,
    MorticianUnEarth
    All New Sounds:
    MorticianRun, MorticianFortify, MorticianAttack,
    MorticianDeath, MorticianReact and MorticianUnEarth.

    Alternate Mortician Civilopedia images with different backgrounds and an
    Alternate Mortician units_32.pcx.

    Adjusted .ini file.

    Included Mortician Coffin Files:
    Civilopedia MorticianCoffinLarge.pcx and MorticianCoffinSmall.pcx,
    MorticianCoffin_units_32.pcx,

    Animations (flcs):
    MorticianCoffinDefault,
    MorticianCoffinFidget,
    MorticianCoffinAttacked,
    MorticianCoffinDeath,
    MorticianCoffinUnEarth
    All New Sounds:
    MorticianCoffinAttack, MorticianCoffinFidget,
    MorticianCoffinDeath, and MorticianCoffinUnEarth.

    Adjusted .ini file.

    First to download (before the Unit thread!) and first to post! The paradrop (or rather the other way round…) anim of the Mortician is great, and the death anims of both the Mortician and the Mortician Coffin are hilarious! Excellent craftsmanship, as usual I might add :goodjob:

    Wolfhart... yes, I saw that :lol: Takes me more time to post it all. Glad you like it :)
    I like it in my EFZI2 Complete game too.

    I will be making a "Corporate Executive" for "the Company" in the Game Next. Probably more people will be able to use it than Zombie Units :)

    I'm looking forward to see next unit from you, and looking forward even more to play EFZI2 Complete! I've played the present incarnation so many times now, alone or hotseat, and I've been adding quite a lot on my own to it.

    Top Quality artwork Vuldacon. As well as the anims what sticks out for me is the lovely use of colouring, shading and contrast.

    Looks great! I like the colors, too. We'll be using him as Count Orlok in the Steampunk mod; just have to figure out how best to use him...

    Thank you, Vuldacon.

    Thanks for the Kind comments guys :)
    ...the Coloring and Textures are better in game than the gif previews show because I had to use one palette for the gifs and one speed so I could combine the animations. The animations where the Coffin appears with the Mortician uses a different palette than the other animations and the Flcs are at different speeds.

    The Model I used is "Nosferatu for Poser" from Meshbox.com.
    I made changes I wanted but thought it would make a Good Mortician at Civ Scale :)

    Balthasar... The Mortician really needs some Rats running around him to be a better Count Orlok. That and perhaps appear less "Zombiefied" but I hope you can use him.

    That is one terrific and unique way to make a unit Vuldacon! 5 stars! Animations are equally well done.

    Whoa. That guy is cool. Looks more like a Vampire than a Zombie to me, but he's still great. He'll be in GDFM somewhere.

    You made Count Orlok! I've been thinking of doing that for a while, but I couldn't have done such a good job. I think you've found a good compromise between the character's original thinness and civ unit proportions. Excellent work!
