    I have a question more than a request really: are there any generic modern aircraft carrier unit graphics beside the original Civ3 one? The closest I get to an at least passable generic supercarrier is Wyrm's Robotech Prometheus (https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/robotech-prometheus-cv.4252/ although did he at some point remake it? I seem to remember another too).

    Hi Laurana Kanan.

    I’m already using the second unit you suggested (the blank box). I need a more substantial looking cargo unit after that one and finally a shipping container to represent an even higher quantity of goods.

    Thanks for the heads-up though.


    Hi Wolfhart.

    The original Civ 3 aircraft carrier is the Nimitz. Why not use the remodelled Nimitz?

    Hi and thank you for replying.
    Anthony's beautiful unit graphics can't be mistaken for anything else than the American Nimitz class it is and that's how I use it too.

    I'm searching for unit graphics of generic aircraft carriers = not immediately identifiable as RL classes (the graphics of which I'm already using for their respective RL civs)
    to be used for other civilizations like Romans, Babylonians, Zulus, etc.

    Since the US Navy is the only one to build Supercarriers after WWII, I decide to simply relable some of Wyrmshadows, Deltas and Anthonys Carriers for other nations.

    Currently I have

    Gerald Ford CVN = Independencia CVN (spanish a. o. )
    Kittyhawk CV = Kittyhawk CV
    Nimitz CVN = Venator CVN (roman a. o. )
    Forrestal CV = Kranich CV (german a. o. )
    Shinano CV = Shinano CV
    Okinawa CV = Kruzenshtern CV (russian a. o. )

    The same applies to the earlier carriers, dreadnoughts and battleships.

    Thank you, I may do the same to get more variation in-game.

    So far I've used the original Civ3 carrier as placeholder graphic for the modern CATOBAR carriers of other nations (except for the Byzantine Autokratōr Class for which I use Wyrm's Robotech Prometheus just because it looks, well Byzantine :D)

    Hi chicknex4, making a civ 3 graphic is not as easy as it may seem.. there is a lot involved, and is quite time consuming. You could make a non-animated 2d graphic pretty easy if there are some graphics out there already in the given directions, but to do a nice animated graphic, one would need a 3d model to use in a program like 3ds max, need to animate texture and render it with special effects, create the palettes, the flc's, the sounds, etc. There isn't a huge group of people around here as there used to be, so it might be difficult for a unit to be made quickly.

    One more! Army flag units in the area pre-WWII, WWII, Coldwar and Modern. Just a default and death animation is enough I think. Just a flag of the nation

    Not exactly the T-15, but I came across a model for the new, lighter Kurganets-25 IFV, which would equip Russian mechanized units if anyone wants.

    I'm looking for a Keffiyeh or shemagh 3d object, preferably in a red and white. OBJ or 3DS format would be a plus. If you find one, I've got a use for it. Thanks.
