    I am finally starting up my Godzilla Mod (4 Civs - Monsters, Aliens, Japanese, and Americans).

    The units I plan on adding here are (of course) Godzilla (TOHO version only, preferably 2000 or early 90's), Ghidora, Mothra, Gamera, MechaGodzilla (for the Aliens), Mecha Ghidora (Aliens), Hedora, Rodan, Anguirus, Gigan, Megalon, and and Destroyah. If you've got other monsters (there are dozens) from any of the Toho Godzilla series, those would be great too!

    As far as the Mod goes, still just laying it out. US and Japan will be in a locked Alliance. The timeline of the mod will stretch from 1930 until 2200.

    US will only have the west coast, parts of Alaska, and Hawaii on the Map.

    Japan will have much more territory.

    Monster Civ will start out as regular Dinos, but mutate into the monsters above (Their Tech tree will basically be an evolution tree). They will start out on Monster Island, of course. The air units would be at least Mothra, Rodan, and Hedora. Ghidora is Land and Air, So I guess I could set him up like the Attack Chopper. The problems Sea units. I remember a Giant shrimp in one of the movies, that could be added, Godzilla is amphibious - he travels on land and through sea. I am not sure how to implement this in the game though. Any suggestions?

    I have not fleshed out the Aliens too much, but they will have the Mech units above, as well asthe UFO unit here on CFC and any other alien-like units I can dig up. I might have the East coast of China as their starting point.

    Flesh out your alien side:

    In the Movie Godzilla 2000, theres a new monster called Orga, which starts out as a UFO, but transforms into a bizaare metallic alien version of Godzilla after absorbing some of Godzilla's DNA.

    Also, don't forget about Space Godzilla, hes diffinitely not of this earth!!!!

    Yep, those would be very good additions to the Aliens. Orgas transformations would be big challenge to the Unit maker. Space Godzilla can fly too, if I remember correctly, so Attack Chopper styling for him works, too.

    In fact I seem to remember a 70's Godzilla movie where Godzilla himself curled up into a fetal position, and flew using his Fire Breath for jet propulsion.... He will be hard to figure out how to use since he is really a land, sea, and air unit....

    Yep, that was in Godzilla Vs. Hedra(The Smog Monster)

    Heres an idea:

    Have different versions of Godzilla appear.

    For instance, the first Godzilla unit you can build should be 1955 Godzilla, who then "upgrades/evolves" into 1970's Godzilla, who in turn "upgrades/evolves" to 1990s Godzilla and so on.

    Now THAT is a GREAT idea I had not thought of! In fact it could be a T-Rex that evolves into th 1955 Godzilla if it has Uranium. That would follow the story line. :nuke:

    Of course, this would mean some very appreciated unit creator would have to create a 1955, 70's, 90's, and 2000 Godzilla. No 1998 American Matthew Broderick Godzillas allowed! :mad:

    I have some pictures at home of all versions (Yes I am a Godzilla freak) of him - I will post when I get off work.

    I am thinking Godzilla should be the King unit for the Monsters, though. Can you upgrade king units???

    I was thinking if I could get someone to build a pteradactyl unit that could upgrade to Rodan with Uranium.

    Anyone have any ideas for resources for this mod?? Maybe Silk for Mothra?

    I think someone made a giant cobra, that could be the snake monster from Destroy All Monsters....

    You can. In the "Sword of the Shogun" Conquest scenerio, your Shogun(King) unit can upgrade several times. All you have to do is create a unit path.

    Oh, and fellow Godzilla fans, check out Rodans Roast for orginal Godzilla stories, info and more! I love that site...

    Here is a link which posts pics of Godzillas evolution from 1954 through 1994:

    http://www.dalekempire.com/GodzillaEvolution.html

    This one goes all the way to the 2001 and 2002 Godzilla movies that were not released here (I'd like the mod to stop at the 2000 version as that is BAD ASS!)

    http://gojistomp.org/movies/documentary/

    here are some other kaiju from the series:

    http://www.kaijuhq.org/versions.html

    Mothras should evolve from Giant Silkworms, and it would be great if the graphic for Mothra had the twin girls.

    Thanks for the king unit evolutiion info, SoG, that is great news!:goodjob:

    BTW I already have a plethora of Godzilla sounds, including actual music from the movies. I am hoping to actually change the games music to it in this Mod....

    Dom, how hard would it be to create these units? I would think not TOO hard since you could base some of it the existing Dino units. You could base Mothra, Rodan, and a basic pteradactyl off of the Giant Eagle animation that is floating around here somewhere.....

    Where is that Rodans Roast Site, SoG? www.RodansRoast.com does not work...

    Baragon would be another great addition to the Kaiju Civ (renamed from Monster Civ)

    I just realized that the dragon units that are floating around here would be an excellent base unit for creating Ghidora - Just add 2 more heads and tails, and change the fire to electricity, and you have a decent base unit for it!

    I'm afraid that this is somewhat beyond my skill... :( I could (possibly) do Rodan, but that'd be about it... I'd have to find a Godzilla model to be able to do it. I don't create my stuff from scratch.

    You can try making era-specific graphics for the unit, that way it would just change when you moved into the next time period.

    I am not even sure how the Kaijus will progress throught the eras yet, but I will keep this idea in mind - it might just work!

    Actually, I found links to a site by a guy named Scott Ayer who made a number of models from the Godzilla series, but it appears that his site is down or gone...
