    Steampunk Propeller Island

    My first unit (that is not a conversion)!

    Unit has been civ colored.

    Some models were used from TurboSquid and from Google Warehouse. These include the houses, zepplin, planes, gun models and turboprop. The rest (including FX) created by me.

    Made for Balthasar, Blue Monkey, King Arthur, and the Steampunk Mod Team for upcoming Steampunk Mod!

    Congrats, Tom, it looks real sharp. I wonder if the inhabitants have to change their windows every time those cannons go off.

    A brilliant piece; well done! And done not just for me, but for the whole Steampunk team which includes Blue Monkey and King Arthur, and a cast of dozens as well.

    Back when KA and I first wrote the Propeller Island into the game, we knew that it would have to be a custom unit. Unlike our other custom requests, however, there were very few images that we could point to for guidance, as this one doesn't actually exist in the books - it's an amalgam of several ideas from the Verne novels. That you've been able to make such a useful and active unit from such vague and contradictory descriptions is a testament to your imagination and unit-making skill.

    I didn't realize until now that it's also your first original unit. What a debut! The first of many I hope..

    Wow, Tom! That has got to be the most elaborate first unit any unit maker has ever down! Superb!

    I only wish I had a use for it.

    Cheers,

    Nick
