    I do think there are a few things getting made. Question though, is whether it is the fact that CIV IV is still quite new as to whether there is not a critical mass of people making units. Regardless some units are getting made such as the C-5 Galaxy which proves this request thread is not entirely useless.

    I would like apostrophize to you all, who are good in mastering work with 3dMax Studio. Are you capable someone, please, to create simple animations for Moon22 unit in this thread: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=180745
    I can´t do it in the meantime, but I think this unit deserve to bring to life.

    Cool idea the AWACs but how would you use it? As an advanced spy plane? Kinda seems useless as all of the planes in the game can do reconnaisance, and by the time you get up to the modern age, you should be able to see at least 95%-100% of the map.

    It's going to have a chance of seeing invisable units, unlike the other planes.

    I know this thread says unit requests, but maybe buildings can go in here too (if there is a building graphics thread, I can't seen it). I have noticed that Switzerland in my personal has no unique building, I so was wondering if someone could make a Swiss Bank graphic. I'm half Swiss, so this is fairly important to me.

    Sounds good. I think there is a Hummer in the thread somewhere Italicus, but there is no Avenger SAM which I would like. Ah, well can't have everything.

    Yep that's reason - to less creators - and it's not tough thing - 5 months ago i didn't anything about 3d modelling - and once learned it's great fun :) - you can find cool tutorials and video tutorials, also check the sharicks tut in tuts section - how to make unit for civ4 - i learned few important things there :)

    so the problem is to less creators and that few works for mods usually (i work on ww2 mod - so 90% of models is ww2 - and unfortunatelly have many in queue) - there's only few freelancers :( - after the mod will be finished, probably i join group of freelancers - making models is greater fun than making mods ;)

    I've been everywhere, man
    As a slightly dissolusioned unit maker, I find comments like that useless. Whenever I do a request, it's because there's a common need by many people (as well as feasibility, usefulness, and how much fun it would be to do).

    I highly recommend that if you want a unit so badly, follow GarretSidzaka example and try some modeling. It's really not that hard once you give it a try. All the software required is free, and there are pleanty of tutorials available. Besides, if you ever get stuck you have plenty of experienced unit makers on this forum to help.

    I was wondering if someone could make a maceman holding a goedendag. This is some information i found about this weapon on the internet. Thx in advance.


    The goedendag is a typical Flemish weapon, which is nothing else but a sturdy, chest length wooden staff, slightly thicker at the top, on which an iron pin is fastened, fixed with an iron ring.

    It was much used during the late 13th and early 14th century in Flanders and proved to be a most effective weapon. The goedendag was used as a club in the first strike. Afterwards it was possible to thrust with it. So it had kind of a double feature.

    Functional Spear Head is Hand forged from steel. 4 1/2' Overall length, Spear head 14" long, Spike 9 3/4" long. The weight is approximately 3.85 lbs.


    Look below for some images.

    Spoiler :

    I would if I knew how, but even with tutorials I am damned to not know in the slightest where to start. Add to that the fact that I never was that good at art and you can understand why a lot of my requests I stand on the sidelines and wait. I think though that it would be a good idea if someone posted about an easy way to do the cardboard counter unit addition so that I could add in some of the units I have always wanted. Oh and to Italicus, I have a link which I will post now, which I have found to the Civ IV Humvee posted in these forums by snafusmith.

    A few units I need for a mod I'm working on:

    - C-47 Dakota air transport

    - WWI British 'Mark-series' tank

    - Paratroop Infantry - thinking Infantry with additioal pack on chest, net over helmet

    - UH-1 Huey helicopter transport

    - Cruiser (mid way in size between destroyer and Battleship)

    - Medic - thinking Infantry with Red Cross embles on helmet and armbands

    - Recon - WW2 german SdKfz 23-234 series vehicle

    - Battering Ram

    I bet half of these have already been made, but I spent the evening searching for and downloading units and I'll be damned if I can find them. If anyone has a link to any of these I'd be very grateful!
