    After 9 months since I started my project, FINALLY I've released a first beta release of TAM Ethnic Units, which is playable with the latest TAM BTS version.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello TAM fans, and welcome into my Ethnic Units project !!! :)

    TAM is a great mod, but it misses a own Ethnic Units collection to play with.
    TAM veterans ask for EU by far, and now it's time to satisfy their wishes.

    Some complete Civ4 EU mods exist around yet, but TAM requires a HUGE number of ancient units that you can't find there. TAM counts 24 ancient civs and special units like javelineer, chariot archer, etc, with different kind of the same unit type appearing through the game eras.

    This is the complete TAM unit list:
    (units in bold have been finished and you may download the stone age, bronze age, classical age and ancient ships parts for your personal mod)

    >>>Archer type<<<
    Archer
    Composite Archer
    Bowman
    Chariot Archer
    Horse Archer
    Heavy Horse Archer

    >>>Skirmisher type<<<
    Javelineer
    Armored Javelineer

    >>>Medium type<<<
    Tribal Warrior
    Axeman
    Swordsman

    >>>Heavy type<<<
    Spearman
    Armored Spearman
    Infantry
    Armored Infantry

    >>>Mounted type<<<
    Chariot
    Light Cavalry
    Elephant
    Heavy Cavalry

    >>>Not combat type<<<
    Scout
    Spy
    Worker
    Settler

    >>>Siege type<<<
    Ram
    Siege Tower
    Catapult
    Fire Catapult

    >>>Naval type<<<
    Work Boat
    Merchant Vessel
    Trade Barge
    Transport Galley
    Transport Barge
    Bireme
    Trireme
    Quinquereme
    Fire Galley

    40 types x 24 civs give a result of 960 units. Furthermore each TAM civ got 2 UU replacing ordinary units, plus a special Hero unit.
    I'm planning to release (and also collecting from other mods) as much units as possible, but it's a HUGE work for a lone man !!! :lol:

    Stay tuned on this thread to see my progress, and write your hints about unit choices.

    :)

    If you don't mind, I think I may need to use some of these units in World of Legends. ;)

    Because of this thread disappeared from TAM subforum, I resume it to confirm that my TAM ethnic project is still alive.
    I'm working on the bronze age unit set, and although I didn't receive here any feedback on my previous stone age set, I assume that "no-negative-feedback" means "to continue my work" :p

    In the meantime, I attach an Achilles preview with a joke-quiz for you:
    "Where I took his face?"
    :)

    I think I'll have to nick off more stuff for WoL at this rate, if you don't mind. Some of the default units in Civ4 are fine, but I think some of the units here would suffice much better.

    Feel free to use my units because I freely made them using models and textures made by others :)

    After that, just to replay such fun quiz, who is Indibil's face? :)

    Well, I give you the answer and stop this stupid quiz in the next :D

    Indibil's face is Russel Crowe from the Gladiator movie.

    I refer to the nickname "HISPANICUS" they have chosen for Maximus the Gladiator, although in roman times Spain was called "Iberia", while "Spain" and "Hispanici" were a long way to come! :lol:

    Just a update about WIP.

    I'm working on axemen, and I was thinking to release the first half of my project, just to know player's feedback on TAM EU
    Stay tuned ;)

    I know the modern worker issue and how to fix it, but what is the roads problem instead?

    Ambrox,

    he is referring to the Interstate look of the roads in the imperial age. When you zoom in you can see the yellow dotted passing center line.

    Gray

    PS. did you get my message regarding the missing 6 civs in the loadup of V 3.19?

    I already answered you on TAMDEV. May be you didn't read it yet.

    @Geralt
    To fix road issue, I made these road replacements (ancient and imperial respectively)
    What do you think about them?

    Sir,

    Apologies for the ignorance of the question, but in which directory under TAM/ should I place the unit art ? (been working with pc's for a very long time, but quite new to Civ)

    Mighty nice work btw !!!

    Units here are a preview, they aren't ready for download yet in order to play them with TAM.
    I'll release them asap ;)
