    Yeah that would be logical. It seems as though naval warfare was mostly overlooked in Civ 4 giving more focus to ground battles.

    A few units I need for my ChazMod, if anyone's up for it:

    - Paratroop - Infantry unit modded to add a chest pack, camo net on helmet, and a Thompson in place of the rifle

    - Maratha Light Infantry - Marine with a G3 rifle, slightly different uniform color

    - Air Transport - snafusmith already made this, just gotta find where he uploaded it

    - Light Cavalry - Napoleonic Hussar uniform

    - Heavy Cavalry - French Napoleonic Cuirassier uniform

    the two cav units would require some serious artwork

    You can't find it because it hasn't been uploaded yet.;) It'll be released in the patch for the Modern Warfare Mod tonight (well, tonight for me).

    lol snafu, thanks. I'm in Oregon so I think we're in the same time zone, aren't we? PST?

    heh it was 2 degrees here the other morning and we all thought that was horrible. I bet that's nothing to you!

    Cheers

    Yeah, it's just about 0F here, and I'm thinking of wearing shorts when I ski this afternoon. Also Chazcon, I sent you a PM...

    Wow, tough guy. Anyway, Snafusmith, I would like to know whether you know of any buddies that may be good at designing textures. I just need a texture for a C-5 Galaxy model that someone has made. It would be cool to have that in MaxRiga Mod. I must also get the pictures I have of the A-12 Avenger up so that can be used as the top of the US fighter tree in MaxRiga mod...

    I read that as a Hitler War Chariot, which was a very confusing image!

    Now that would be weird. I would imagine an idea like that as an armored car with a large set of speakers and radio aerials spraying out propaganda over a large scale radius...

    1. I'd really like to see the peltast included in Warlords reworked into an Incan Fire Slinger. All this would require would be to attach fire to the sling projectile and reskin the unit.

    To explain what an Incan Fire Slinger is, the Inca had excellent textile technology, which they used to make slings of high quality. They would then frequently heat sling-stones and wrap them in pitch-soaked cloth. Once hurled from their slings, projectiles would burst into flame in mid-air. Sound cool? Well you can bet if freaked the crap out of the Spanish invaders.

    The guy in the middle in the attached image can be used for reference. Feel free to also use the vanilla Quechua for reference or materials, or anything else you can find that's relatively authentic.


    2. Another New World themed request of a different nature: I'd also like to see the Aztec Jaguar with a metal sword. Shouldn't be to difficult -- would be cool and very useful for any alternate history scenarios. The shield could change or stay the same, entirely up to anyone who wants to take on the task.

    Thanks in advance!

    How about a chain-saw person, that shows a person head getting cut off and "Blood"!

    because in warlords is possible to have 3 ART tags for unit (early, middle, late - in vanilla was only early and late) - what about creating new worker (or just reskin old) for medieval eras? I don't like ancient workers in 19th century :)

    Yes spy planes would be cool but not that useful really unless you could automate them to fly a pre-determined range around a city or airbase... Really do hope though that they reintroduce airbases and radartowers as I really miss them and what they stood for. I always thought radar was a great thing in C3C even though they took it out of the mix which was a pity...

    All I need is someone to make a hat for me.
    Napoleon's hat. Something like the one in this picture:

    Okay, I have some plans but you will need to make some decisions as to texture and colour as it mostly seems to be painted white in what I have seen...
