    If there is a unit you would like to see made for Civ III, this is the place to request it.

    Make sure you have searched thoroughly first, because we now have a lot of units in the database. You may also find the unit library and the unit artists' library helpful, but be aware that these are not complete.

    If you request a unit, please bear in mind that making a unit takes a lot of time and skill, and people here do it just for fun. Making a unit for someone else is a big favour. So ask nicely, do not demand, and ideally, provide pictures to spark people's interest.

    The previous request thread can be found here.

    It's been a while since I've actually requested anything and I doubt the current unit makers would even bother, but I'll request anyway.

    I'd like to request some premodern Korean units:
    1) Gaemamusa - Goguryeo heavy cavalry (image can be found in Shiro's thread)
    2) Early Korean infnatry (again, image can be found in Shiro's thread)
    3) Silla archer (not something like a Hwarang, but a regular infantry guy)

    Sounds like a call for our Super Unit Maker (a/k/a Sandris)! :)

    Well, like I posted in my recent thread, I request a Mammoth animal unit without rider or saddle, and a War Mammoth unit with some sort of platform for bowmen or javelin throwers.

    For my work-in-progress mod (Modern Day Europe):
    • Tanker (perhaps designed after the Knock Nevis, I believe my link in my sig still works)
    • Rail Gun
    • PAK FA
    • Various Modern European Infantrys (I don't think the WWII units do them complete justice, and I haven't seen ones for each nation)
    • Any other fitting Modern European unit
    Just for fun:

    Can you provide me with a few pics to choose from of exactly what you want? I could knock one or two of them out if you like.

    -Perhaps this might be a good Turkish/Greek Infantry
    -A more general Balkan Infantry (Macadeonia/Albania, Romania, Bulgaria) (no hard hat)
    -Polish/Latvian/Lithuanian Infantry
    -Scandinavian Infantry (similar to Polish, perhaps lighter camo, with AK5)
    -French Infantry (with the hat I forget the name of, I wanna' say Burret)
    -Iberian Infantry
    -Italian Infantry
    I'm sure alot of these are similar enough to be clumped into one unit, it just was easier to find pics by area/nation
    And don't forget to add little touches of your own genious ;)

    Taras Bulba, how does this guy look? He is armed with the MP44 here but I will give him an HK33 rifle when I actually do the unit. I modeled him after a pic on your Turkish Army website but he could probably double as any number of different countries. Let me know.



    EDIT: I can make the skin a little darker as well if you think it need it.

    that's amazing! I probably will use him for a couple of nations, but I think he might need a bit of a darker skin, you're right

    For more versatility I could do both a light skin color (like pictured) and a darker skin color. And while I'm on the HK33 I will probably do a few different units with it.

    I can do a lighter Camo scheme as well to use as a different country, most likely East European. It will have the HK33 also though.

    Hi, can anyone make a Qassam rocket unit?

    I'll need it for a middle east mod and I've looked around and can't find it anywhere. Thanks to anyone who makes it.

    I like that one Gary! The cammo can be even lighter in my opinion
