    It's not really boobs under there. It's just clothing. Same as with my lamia litch model. And believe it or not there is a logical reason for this.

    Lithches are not mindless undead. And as far as I am concerned that means that just because they are undead does not mean they are going to abandon the niceties of life. Sure they can't enjoy food or drink or sex any more, but they are still human. So things such as fine clothes or jewelry are still going to be a thing they wear. They are still going to want nice furniture, cool staffs, etc. Especially in case of those individuals such as archmages (the sort of people that become a litch) where those things are part of the uniform. So I feel that even in undeath a female is likely to have some sort of reminder of her femininity in there. Just like a male undead knight is still likely to keep the codpiece on his plate armor.

    Plus there is something just flat out cool about a sexy skeleton.

    The druid is not my unit. It's a default unit from the mod.

    Ah sorry, i'm the one who directed him here. (if you have a moment to check whatever is wrong with it, i'd be grateful. i'm afraid this is outside of my skillset)

    I looked at it but there is nothing I can do. Basically, it's a bug that shows up in those small side portraits of units that you have on the left hand side of the screen where transparent pieces don't show up as transparent but instead as black. And I don't know how to fix that.

    You can see the same thing on for example the great prophet. Wish I could do something.

    That's nice. Is it a ghost or a pirate ship?

    BTW: I don't know if you accept any requests but I have to try it so I ask. Could you make a nice camel model? I have extracted one from C2C but that's kind of ugly.

    What's wrong with the existing camel models you get with camel cavalry and great merchants? Also the camel resource in FFH.
    Or do you like want a specific unit made out of them? Like a camel archer/cavalry/thing?

    Also the model is for the undead pirate ship hero things from FFH. Sailors Dirge and The Flying Patrian.

    It's been a while since i coded that event but the flying patrian isn't especially supposed to be a ghost ship, just a long lost flying one.
    On that note, if you wanna make more ship models, i had a plan to give each of the lanun leader their own flagship. I've got the names in a doc somewhere if you're interested.

    No idea honestly. I've newer actually seen it in game. I was primarily looking to create a new model for the Dirge but during testing I needed something for it to shoot at and I found out that they use the same art define so I figured they must be a similar thing.

    So if you want me to separate the two I totally can as I am looking to do more ship models for fun. But you have to manually give it a separate art define in your XML as opposed to having both units point to the same model.

    I am definitively looking to give each civ their unique ship style. So if you have any requests now is the time to make them.

    Also to provide any descriptions, reference images or materials (like unique flags) you want me to use.

    Sorry, I wasn't concrete enough. I'd like a Camel animal unit with no riders at all. Something that can be hunted like Lions and Wolves. It would be for my AND modmod.

    Than you did a really good job. The moment I saw it I said "What's this? An undead ship from the Prates of the Caribbean?"
    That model really gets that mood. Good job :)

    Falamar : The Maiden's Delight
    Hannah : The Desacrated Vessel
    Casin : Danalin's Library
    Blackheart : Queen Storm's Revenge
    Mordmorgan: The Stolen Thunder

    The first three based on a Frigate, the last two on Queen of the Line ( potentially Man O War for Blackheart).

    Hannah is using the Lanun flag, probably mixed with some overlord symbol, Blackheart a variation of the overlord symbol, Mordmorgan, no flag and the other two i don't know.

    Oh yeah, Mordmorgan's ship's mast was apparently armor-plated by dwarven craftsmen

    I'll see what I can come up with. I've been using this guys ship models to give me an extended roster of ships to draw from. But you can expect me to generally stick within the categories you mentioned.

    https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/europa-universalis-iv-renaissance-units.624660/

    This said, I have asked for permission as you demand (unreasonably if you ask me but w/e) but since he has not responded so far I won't be publishing anything for download until he does.

    Any color preferences otherwise? Not essential but like you seem to have these things figured out and I might as well ask.

    So some sort of hybrid between the QOTL and the dwarven ironclad. I'll see what I can come up with.

    I'll see what I can do but no promises.

    Glad you like it.

    There were issues in the past so i prefer things to be clear when possible. ^^

    Darker tones for Hannah and Blackheart, lighter for Falamar and Casin, classic for Mordmorgan. no specific idea in mind.
    More like a basic QOTL but with some additional armor showing up on the mast area. (If you read his pedia, you'll see that he uses his ship as bait for pirates, it should not look too bulky).

    THX. That's more than enough.
    I can go with the C2C camel model but would like to have something nice if possible.

    Just as a note, I can't create a whole new camel mesh from whole cloth. That's just not in my skills.
    All I can do is take the existing meshes like say the one from the great merchant or camel knight and see if I can find or adjust their animations so as to make it a solitary unit that has some sort of combat animation that makes sense.

    Sure.
    If you can load C2C for 2 minutes and check the pedia you'll see what I find wrong with that Camel. If you can make a better than that it's great, if not, than that's okay too :)
