    This is a colour converted Abu Bakr king unit that's been given a new magical attack. The preview is unfortunate in that everything looks blue, but I assure you, the blue of the turban and the hem of the robe is civ coloured, just like Abu Bakr's, while the robe itself is blue whatever civ colour you choose.

    The attack sound is a bit cheesy (i e it's stolen, and doesn't fit very well), if you can make a better one, be my guest, and please post it. :)

    This is perfect for the Blue Mage late game UU for the FFTA civ that I'd added to the FF mod. I was going to use the Temujin attack that you did, but this one's much better (since the blue mages in FFTA wear blue).

    Because in Final Fantasy 5, the first game to feature the Blue Mage, has them wearing blue.. :goodjob:

    When I saw this, it reminded me of one of the those Arabian Nights style Sorceriors like Jafar from the Disney Movie.

    Yes, I saw Aladdin at the Old Vic last month (with Ian McKellen as Widow Twankey!) so naturally I think this is a wicked Arabian magician! Abracadabra, alakazam!

    So does FF Tactics Advanced. As a matter of fact, that particular game has a rather mid-eastern flavor, and the Blue mage job charachters look almost exactly like this color converted unit (right down to the turban.....).

    The original FF Tactics was heavily Western European...but that didn't stop them from throwing in a few East Asian things.. :goodjob:

    Very nice:goodjob:

    If you don't like the fire attack, then why not use one of aaglos attacks from his shamans?

    I don't dislike the fire attack, it's just that I wanted a attack that was easy to fit into the palette ;)

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone. :)

    Thanks mrtn, I always get annoyed when I have to make them myself. I'm terrible at it. :)

    That's actually one thing I'm good at, I've made loads to my personal mod. And corrected some bad ones by different creators, such as BreakAway. :mischief:

    Any chance I could recruit you for my beta testing to redo some of my awful looking ones?

    No, but maybe I could do them anyway. If you only have the unit I could make a decent looking small one at least, if you have some bigger gfx I could try for a large one too. But maybe this thread isn't the place for that... ;)

    Good job, mrtn :)

    But, is it me, or is the mage attack animation some 10 pixels lower than the rest of those anims?
