    I didn't see one in here but I remember one from Civ 4. As a modder but not a graphics guy I thought it might be nice to get one started. I'm also unfamiliar with the format for Civ 5. Can we use the graphics from Civ 4? Will they animate and perform correctly?

    Units I am specifically looking for are:

    Typhoon Class Submarine
    Sen Toku I-400
    Viking Warrior (Not so much the Beserker but more like the actual viking raiders were. Example.)

    I 'd appreciate any help on shedding some light on this. Thanks.

    More suggestions:

    Marines (just starts with amphibious)
    Axemen/Macemen (bonus vs. melee)
    Some sort of heli-transport or APC

    Alright, I already posted these elsewhere but since this seems to be the proper place for it I'll post them again them here.

    Explorer - medieval/renaissance upgrade unit for the scout
    Ranger - industrial recon unit
    Guerrilla - modern recon unit
    Grenadier - could add variety to the renaissance units
    Marine - could get a bonus when attacking from the sea
    Spec Ops - modern era infantry besides paratrooper
    ICBM - why not?
    Cuirassier - could replace the lancer
    Apache Longbow - re-skin for the helicopter gunship

    Also some more realistic near future units to replace the GDR. Maybe an Osprey type gunship a Reaper UAV type drone or a robotic/unmanned tank.

    Mechanized infantry =/= APC.

    The difference between IFVs and APCs is pretty minute - the only reasonable difference is the armament, and considering that the Mechanized Infantry already has an attack on par with the tank, I think pushing it any higher would be infeasible.

    4. Heavy Cavalry - http://forums.civfanatics.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=14844 (Roman unit)
    5. Scout Cavalry - http://forums.civfanatics.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=14405 (Greek unit)

    Battletech units, please!

    Reseens undesirable, but if necessary, I'll take whatever I can get. For once, a BT mod has to actually get off the ground for Civ, so many have been started and never gotten anywhere.

    You make the units, I make the mod.

    thx :)

    It is "zaporizhian" and not "zaporozhian"? Probably it's a difference in Ukraine and Russian languages :p.

    I would like to request a "treasure" unit like that guy with a wheelcart from the Crossroads of the World mod if someone ever gets his hands on this. I want to make it possible to "plunder" city states and recieve a "treasure" instead of a pure "gold" for this, and leave it be or destroy it. I want to be able to capture AI's spoils of war, and I want to protect mine :p.

    A standard modern looking soldier (preferably with forest camoflague or a similar type) would be great to add. The Paratrooper animations would probably be best to use for this unit (I haven't seen the animations yet though).

    I want to change the Mechanized Infantry unit graphic to have modern soldiers on foot fighting along with the vehicles (maybe like five soldiers and two vehicles).

    I would love to see modded graphic packs for each civilization. For example, a talented modder (not me) could make a german graphic pack, that would take the inf. (that looks like a tommy) and replace it with a (jerry) graphic. Take the rifleman and make him look like a german rifleman from the franco-prussian war with a Pickelhaube. Make the Paratrooper graphic into a fallschwimjager.... etc.

    Then do the same with america, sherman graphic instead of the t34, and so on.
