Discussion in 'Civ4 - Unit Graphics' started by Thunderfall, Feb 5, 2006.
Well, much less rounded than a cylinder. I kinda want something like this:
I think the sides should have team colour at least, and the top could also have it, but that might lead to the issue of the symbol on top being hard to distinguish, depending on what it and the teamcolour are?
Why no-one full-filed my request yet?
Because it doesn't work like that.
Many requests are NEVER taken.
But i need a Medieval Manchurian, Industrial Two Sicilies and SEA Great peoples unit graphics.
There are only few modders left (which is a pity), and they only fulfill requests where they have good ideas how to do this and / or they are interested in by themselves. In addition, all this poeple do it in their spare time. I have also done may requests which are not fulfilled, and I also do only things I have the abilities for.
I think you're beautiful too Mighty Toad
I remember having a lot of fun trying to figure out how to do that one.
I never knew how to use Blender or anything so I think it's wicked cool that you were able to combine all that stuff into one mesh, I had a lot of troubleshooting to do to make sure everything moved together like it should've in-game and didn't break anything
I remember importing all those little things from other custom units and retexturing everything using the picture Sword_Of_Geddon posted.
Surprised it even came up again!
Nice to see people are still modding Civ 4.
I used to have a lot of fun making custom units and mods.
The computer that I used for Civ 4 broke down a handful of years ago and I lost all of my projects.
It's really nostalgic to look back on what I posted here.
Thanks for improving that model Mighty Toad! Could probably use a retexture so that it isn't so ugly
Thanks for requesting that unit art Sword_Of_Geddon and helping to bolster my creativity and learning so many years ago.
No problem. Good to see you stop by the boards again.
Did anyone ever create a non-military cargo truck? I searched the database but found none
I mean something like this:
Shouldn't be too hard to do. Give me some hours.
Wow! I'm even fine with some days or or weeks.
Thanks in advance!
I thougt there was one model in the database. It is included in a pack, but maybe it is still too military.
I also have one modell used in my forwarding agency. But I actually do not know who did it.
Our plan is to have a unit of that nature (and a series of upgrades of it as well) so before too long we'll have one over at C2C if you keep an eye out there.
Yeah, I just thought that I wanted an upgrade for the Freight (trader) unit in the late modern era
Yeah if you find a good one let me know. Looking for that and then a Land Train (3 segment) style one for even later. We have a new 3d art contributor so I suspect he'll want to do his own but if we get one rustled up here, that could be good too.
Will this do?
Work in progress, obviously.
Yeah! I like it very much
You are going to add a semi trailer too, right?
It would be really awesome if the semi trailer would turn behind the truck when it's turning - I don't know if it's possible at all, so it's just wishful thinking
But I hope that putting team colour and the civ's flag as a logo on the semi trailer sides is not a big thing to ask
I am not sure I can make it turn on account of the fact that there are no turning animations. The game just sort of turns units. But I totally am going to make several types of trailers with teamcolor on them.
Random question. Can shaders be added by mods or modules?
Also, does anyone have a good tutorial for compiling these things?
As a final, futuristic trader unit I imagine something like these:
Obviously its no longer a land unit
