    You posted a few pics a while ago with the following units as unreleased / revised

    Leclerc MBT (France)
    PT-91 'Twardy' (Poland)
    BTR-80 (Russia)
    M-8 (America)
    AMX-30 (France)
    M-26 (America)
    M3A1 (America)
    M4A3 (America)
    Brooklyn Class Cruiser

    The ones marked fat did not say revised, the others did. In any case, I would appreciate if you were to release them ;)

    If you really do not have the time to post them, just drop them off for me and I will post them, after all, you already provided screenshots ;)

    I thought I already explained: Just because they have a screenshot, doesn't mean they're DONE... it just means they're modeled and skinned enough to have a screenshot.

    These (below) have already been posted and there's no reason to post the new ones, they're only improvements to the skins. You'll likely find them in the next version of some WW2 mod anyway.
    M-26 (America)
    M3A1 (America)
    M4A3 (America)
    Brooklyn Class Cruiser
    BTR-80 (Russia)
    M-8 (America)


    The PT-91 'Twardy' has been out for ages in the Poland mod that Asioasioasio and Kodzi made. Look there if you want to find it.

    Though the AMX-30 and Leclerc MBT are completely done, I don't plan to release them - they don't meet my standards and I don't want to post anything unless it's good enough.

    As for someone else posting my work... well, no. I don't want to come off as mean or selfish, but some things just aren't meant to be posted. They might look good in screenshots and be good enough for some people, but my standards have gotten higher over time. I don't like many of the units I created even a year ago, and wouldn't post them if I had made them yesterday.

    The question I would ask...

    Is your AMX-30 or Leclerc better then the default Civ4 MBT (cheap M1A1) for France?

    If the answer is yes (and I suspect it is), I think most of us would greatly appreciate it... (you can always make a newer/better model to your current standards whenever you want... the rest of us wouldn't hold it against you if we had a MBT option for France other then a stupid M1A1).

    Haha, I thought you guys were talking about "Motor Boat Torpedo" there until you said the "default" one, and I am like, where, where?

    Anyways, anything you do Smitty is good for release. ;)

    Yeah, it's probably better than nothing, but that's not the point. I hold myself to certain standards, reguardless of what anyone else might think. I wouldn't feel right releasing something knowing I could do better. Please stop bugging me on this.

    Last question, then I will stop bugging you about them ;)

    Does this mean you never will release them (as they are done but do not meet your standards) or that you will work on them some more (even though they are done) ?

    I'd like to request the SR-71 blackbird. I'm surprised it hasnt been done. I think snafu would do a great job at it.

    Snafu... there's a German Armored Fighting Vehicle in the background of this picture... still can't believe they lost the war with those things on their side, but maybe we should make another German AFV...

    Sorry Snafu... wasn't actually a serious request... just saw the picture and thought it was pretty funny.
