    I really like this unit. Especially that it's a female centaur. (1)

    If you don't mind sharing, what model(s) did you use?

    Thanks for the comments!

    Yes, I thought about doing a more classic Kentaurides but I figured a fantasy version would be more useful to all - me especially. I don't mind adapting the wardrobe if there is a real need of a greek version.

    Not at all. Everything is in the readme.txt, integrally posted in the original post, but I've enlightened the particular models here :

    Spoiler :
    Centaur (female) unit for Civilization III

    Thanks for the info. Is the centaur morph available at one of the sites like DAZ or Renderosity?

    Not a request but just a comment: some day it would nice to be a set of Titanide units. They could each have unique fur patterns, including civ color. As well as using a range of weapons from ancient era to pistols.

    Centaur morph is freely available at the author's thread at DAZ forums.

    Since you commented on my Hatshepsut leaderhead, it's only fair that I respond in kind with a comment on your own work. I have to say, congratulations on the award for your centaur. It does indeed look like it would fit perfectly into Civ III's graphics!

    Excellent unit :)

    If i may nitpick a bit (and of course i never made any unit at all) ideally in my view the unit would look even better if very slightly sized up (eg something like 10% at most, maybe just the horse-part of it) and the legs of the horse running part move a bit more like real galloping horses. The rest of the legs movement is amazing though :)

    Thanks, K. I did use some horse motion sheets for the animations, probably even Muybridge's. The final animation was the best I could manage given my abilities of course but also the number of frames chosen, and the necessity to loop.

    Edit: Damn you guys, I want to make another unit now. ;)

    Must have missed this unit. Really like the death animation.

    That's… nice. As in, I've got a place saved for it in the next announcement-nice.
