    Yo, Ho, Ho, & a bottle of Rum!

    Here is a new unit, no INI file or sounds yet (Feel Free to submit some). :p
    If I make anymore pirate type units I'll post them here for easy location.
    You can also use this for a Civlopedia image;



    This is the first of my releases to feature smoke effects tailored exactly to match the civ III palette in one of the animations. Please test it in game and tell me how it looks. I need to decide if it's worth using it like this or customising it to use only one or two colours.

    And you can get him here;

    darn, I too have the urge to utter some comment in the buccaneer dialect. However I feel it would be slightly redundant. Great unit

    That's really nicely animated - he has real character. Now, how about an animation showing him shaving his belly with a rusty razor? ..Or perhaps not.

    I think this is a thing with some browsers (certainly mozilla). Basically, when making the .gif a fps was not set. Usually it defaults to 8fps (I think)... but some things just play it really really fast...

    ARRR!!!! Now we can finally walk the plank...err, make our enemies walk the plank by raiding coastal communitys!

    Thankyou Smoke for forefilling this request, seems everyone had it at one point, the urge to request for a land-based(urr, is that the approapriate term?) unit to compliment the Privateer and Aaglo's new Pirateship.

    Huh, don't know how I missed this one. Bout time we seen a pirate!
    About the gunsmoke, I think it looks better than the usual semi-transparent smoke (the muzzel flash looks.. tubular.. in a bad way). But if its a real pain in the ass to do the civ style smoke effects you don't lose that much with the gray-trasparent "shadow" smoke.

    So how do we use this best? Amphibious, hidden nationality + enslave would be my idea. Good Attack, bad defense (too much booze). ;-)
