    Is this an update -- i.e., should we re-download anything?

    Thanks again for all these great units!

    I suggest that you download again every unit which is in version 1.1, and overwrite the old one.

    I have a problem. I've downloaded all of the units that are done on both cossack threads and everything is fine until these last four. Austrian Musketeer, Highlander(musket), Streletz, Polish Musketeer.

    Out of all these units these four cause the 'illegal operation' error whenever the game tries to load them into the build queue.

    I really enjoy using these units in my games and definitely appreciate all the work everyone has done on the units. I would be very thankful if someone could tell me what I am doing wrong with just these four units.

    I have checked the folders for spelling or spacing or something along those lines but they appear all right. With the other units everything has been a letter or space being wrong and when that happens the error message tells me what is missing. these are the only units, from the cossack collection, that I have been booted out of the game with an illegal operation error.

    Sorry for the length just trying to explain. Any and all help would be very appreciated.

    Strange... I've included all these units into a scenario, and then loaded it in game, it worked fine (after a few correction in the names that should be included in the zip).

    Thanks for the replys. I swapped out the ini's with units that were working, just changed the entries, all units work now. I don't know what was causing the error the inis looked the same, but they now work.

    Thanks again for the replys. BTW the Mayan Pike looks good in game.

    Another civ color conversion - Ukrainian cossack with a sword

    Again, just like with Polish Dragoon, I did simple palette editing because I thought I could use a light mounted swordsman and this guy looked the part. He has civ-colored pants and has identical animations with the original - just with civ colors.

    Ukrainian cossack with a sword (civ colors)

    And here's a little preview:

    The original was also civ colored, the saddle blanket IIRC

    By the way, I've also added the Turkish Light Infantry copy'n'paste by Loulong

    I noticed, but I thought it was unintentional as it was pretty hard to spot. Oh well. Guess two versions does no harm. :)

    Not at all, you can do as many versions as you want. I don't mind people redoing my job (me ;) ). My rule is : I do the unit the color I like, I try to take suggestion or request into account, but if I don't agree with one, I simply ignore it, and let the requester do it itself.
