    Hi all

    I'm wondering if it's possable to make a unit that could build a boat, maby in a forest near watter or somthing. I do belive this was done in the past many times duting battle. Cortez of Spain had boats built at least twice in the Americas. I don't remember all the details or the other referances in history.

    Anyway I still think this would be cool. I don't know that anyone else has requested such a thing. I need it for a mod I'm building, and a map style I'm scripting(I belive its called scripting) It would be verry cool if it is possable and some one could do this for me or point me in a direction of how I can learn to do it myself. Thanks.

    because my knowledge of 3d modeling and nifs is mediocre, i wanted to post ANOTHER request for a modern unit, A sheridan light tank. This would be perfect for my mod that im making. i have pics if anyone is interested.

    And I want a trebuchet, as well :)

    That one is in production (actually the dragon is at the moment right now running, afterwards a flying version, the rider will be put on top in the future.) It might need some weeks through.

    My request might be simple. I have no idea how to do it myself though. I want the games cavalry unit to be have a grey uniform and riding a black horse. So I could use it in the CSA MOD as their UU... As CONFEDERATE RANGER.

    I've been everywhere, man
    As one of the few unit makers out there, here's some advice I can give on how to get your units made:

    1-Be precise in what you want. Saying one or 2 lines doesn't help much. If you want a battlemech (for example, it's come up a couple times), say what kind. The more specific you are, the more likely you'll get exactly what you want, and it makes it much easier for the unit maker.
    2-Show pictures. You might know exactly what an HH-60 is, but not everyone will know it's effectively a USAF Pavehawk helicopter (same as the famous blackhawk). General pictures of the unit in use help, but aren't nearly as good as a set of profiles (Like This). I won't start any unit without a set of profiles like that. It doesn't matter how many photos you can show me from every possible angle. Without those 3 matched views, it's not worth the effort.
    3-Try and help the maker out. If all you want is an animated model to texture, say so. Try and make it yourself if you want it so badly. If someone tried to make their favorite tank, gave a good effort but had problems in certain areas, I would be more than happy to help out. The more you help us, the more we can help you.

    I've been watching the request threads trying to find out what to make next, but haven't seen much in the way of clear cut requests. There have been a few very good requests that I'm trying to get to. The others just seem to get left behind. Generally I will ignore any request that doesn't have 1 and 2 from above. 3 is just gravy, shows me that there's hope for when I give up making units in a month.
