    Yea seZereth, this is great, especially the medieval units (and hopefully you'll add some renaissance units too), but why haven't you replied to the question I asked you in my PM? :(

    Anyway, thanks for this collection thread :)

    Thanks ;) i will do some more renaisance parts and skins, to make the construction Kit even more variable :) i hope you produce a nice mod, so i can watch my work in action ;) if you need some specific stuff on the shields or on the skirts, like for UUs, i could perhaps do some English, French and Holy Roman Empire Symbol variants for that. (But only if they are needed, have tons of other things to do!!!)

    And for your Question, Rabbit told you what i would have told you, it is The Dir Variance, which makes the Formations look more dynamic, if you set it to zero it shouldnt rotate them. I can have a closer look into that later.

    Excellent news, I was able to do it!

    Code:
    <UnitFormation>
    		<Name>IDLE (1)</Name>
    		<DirectionType>DIRECTION_SOUTH</DirectionType>
    		<UseFacing>1</UseFacing>
    		<RotationMask>255</RotationMask>
    		<EventMaskList>
    			<EventType>ENTEVENT_IDLE</EventType>
    			<EventType>ENTEVENT_SURRENDER</EventType>
    			<EventType>ENTEVENT_CAPTURED</EventType>
    			<EventType>ENTEVENT_SLEEP</EventType>
    			<EventType>ENTEVENT_BEGIN_COMBAT</EventType>
    		</EventMaskList>
    		<UnitMaskList>
    			<UnitType>UNIT_DEFENDER</UnitType>
    		</UnitMaskList>
    		<PromotionMaskList/>
    		<UnitEntry>
    			<Position>
    				<x>0</x>
    				<y>0</y>
    			</Position>
    			<PositionRadius>0</PositionRadius>
    			<Direction>0</Direction>
    			<DirVariation>0</DirVariation>
    		</UnitEntry>
    	</UnitFormation>
    That is what did it.

    I requested a bombard and ballista from Snafusmith, but I don't think he'll get a chance to work on it before he leaves since he has so many other requests on his plate. I have the model from Empire Earth II; if I sent you one would you be able to skin it?

    i cant uv map it or something like that (that means i cant create a complete new texture, cause i dont have any 3d programm!) but i could create a skin, if you send me a wireframe texture, hope you know what i mean. try to send it and then we will see what i can do with it!

    I managed to get a look into Alaskans Technique of transplantating Bones and it is quiete fast to do and can produce very impressive effects, have a look at this :p
     
  12. Wasn't sure where I should post this but I think you'll get the biggest milage out of this so I'll put it here (although you might've already figure it out).

    You know how the early ranged units (skirmisher, archer, longbow, chinoku (name?) probably too) have melee attack animations? Well, if in the art define you set <bActRanged> to 0 they will turn into melee units, which is actually pretty interesting because it gives you few more melee attack animations that could be used for new units. (These probably have less variations than true melee animations, but it's still nice.)

    For some of them the unit doesn't even look like it should be ranged, like the skirmisher who just looks like a variation of spearman. For archers of course you still need to have the bow because otherwise their fortify stance will look weird. However, archers are the only dual-wielding unit in the game as far as I know. :D What's more, longbowmen's melee animation involves couple of swings with a stick - the closest there is to having an actual staff attack animations.

    The biggest downside here is that for some unfathomable reason the archer's daggers are skinned (not the texture kinda skin, but the mesh to bone kinda skin). The problem with this (and I could be wrong because I only did a very quick test, which failed) is that they way the animation handles hiding and showing them at appropriate times means that if you you reaplce them with new weapons, they won't do that, i.e. they will always be visible.

    Then again if you remove the bow and arrow, put couple of exotic swords instead of the daggers, who knows, maybe even the fortify pose will work. Certainly worth a try. :D

    hehe, i already used that fact with some elven units, for example the wardancer is an archer using 2 swords :) But nice to hear some ideas from you, tell me if you come up with other ones !
     
  14. So, wait, does that mean that you got the swords to hide when needed or are they just always "out"?

    Rabbit, White, the weapons will dissapear normally, you just have to put it in the "Archer_Right Knife_BONE" and "Archer_Left Knife_BONE" respectively. The fortify may look wierd though, but that's the only problem I can see.
