    A type of Undead know as a "Lazar" from the Death Gate Cycle by Weiss and Hickman. This unit would have a very gory, unarmed zombie body, but there would be and effects transparency of itself in living form, writhing translucently to escape the body, but somehow tied into place. Sound kinda freaky?

    Need a simple mesh. An elven shield to make more highelves. The models are almost finished, please help out this shouldn't be to difficult! Would be cool if it could be skinned asymmetric.
    Here's a pic(the small second one):

    :help:
    I have an excellent idea to make Civ4 more challanging! Fire! Wildfires could start at random,or a special unit could set enemy forests on fire.To keep the fires from spreading(this is done automatically) a unit called a "firefighter" could put it out.The problem is I don't know how to make units.I'd appreciate any help! :thanx:

    :goodjob: Hi 3d artists! If you don't have anything to do, please help me! :)
    I need:

    -A torpedo boat http://www.warboats.org/images/jpg/Russia/russia9.jpg

    -A missile boat (you could take the torpedo boat model and replace the torpedo launchers with the missile launchers)
    http://www.warboats.org/images/jpg/Russia/russia2.jpg

    - Something similar to a SCUD launcher http://www.desertcombat.com/Vehicle Images/SCUD.jpg

    - An AWAC plane (what about taking the original civ bomber model and add the radar?)

    - An anti-sub plane, as the Viking (not a big plane model, I'd let it take off from the carrier) http://www.cloud9photography.us/sub-cop-003.html

    THANK YOU :goodjob
    If you really wanna try to make one of these units, contact me!

    First time on board...but I wanted to make a request for both scenario and unit.

    Unit:
    I saw an ANZAC unit, downloaded it only to find it was for Civ III not Civ IV! Would someone be able to make one for Civ IV?

    Scenario:
    WW1
    --Western Front
    --Gallipoli

    Welcome on the forum. I think some people already work on a WW1 mod, but this will take time.:)

    Edit:
    Request:

    Don't know if this is possible. Can someone have a look at the Jaguaranimation and delete all reference to the ponytail? That would very likly make an awesome animation available for animationswitching.

    I'm really suprised that nobody's made this one yet, let alone requested it:

    The F-4 phantom.

    The double ugly's got to be one of most important and recognizable jets ever to take to the skies. It's flown for a wide variety of air forces in a wide variety of roles, and in service to the US and Israel has downed a record 393 MiGs. Here are a few links, courtesy of Wikipedia.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F-4
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c2/F-4_3-view.jpg

    I understand why the F-16 was chosen as the 'Jet Fighter,' as 4000 in service to 16 air forces is nothing to scoff at, but in my mod I've slowed down the modern era and redid the planes into three tiers- Tier one being WWII planes, Tier II being second and third generation jet interceptors and multiroles, and tier three being semi-modern to modern air superiority fighters. There's already a beautiful model of the MiG 21 available, thanks to Nautil, but we still need an F-4.

    I'd model it in an instant but I've got no experience in graphics and wouldn't know where to start (although a tutorial on this site would probably be a good bet.) However, I feel that there are a lot of people out there who could do the big iron sled a lot better than I could. Thanks in advance!

    =-=-=
    EDIT
    =-=-=
    According to Wikipedia, the F-16 is in service to 24 air forces. I'm not sure who's right, Wikipedia or me. My money's on Wikipedia.

    "The Space Marines of the Adeptus Astartes are Humanity's ultimate warriors, dedicated to the defence of the Emperor and the Imperium of Man. They are barely human at all, but superhuman, having been made superior, in all respects, to a normal man by a harsh regime of genetic modification, psycho-conditioning and rigorous training."



    I expect this one to be quite a challege - lots of annoying curvy bits alongside organic animation. There are options for converting higher-poly models if you want to. Here is a link to an 8000 poly standard space marine model, and if you check out this page there are a few other Marine models. If you have DoW you should also be able to export a relatively low poly model from there.

    Being ever the perfectionist, I'd quite like him animated. It would also be quite nice if the majority of the armour could be Civ-coloured, as this is how space marines are! If you need any other referance material google has thousands of images. If you need animation inspiration, check out this thread.

    There are several other units that I'd quite like to base off the same model. If you fancy a go at this they are:

    Assault Marine (jump pack - this guy flys)
    Devistator Marine (shoulder mounted heavy weapons)
    Space Marine Sergant (no helmet, big banner attached to backpack)

    Thanks in advance...

    EDIT: If you want any more details, please PM me.

    First of all, not right place. But, you have to use 3ds Max 7 and some skills in XML to make units.

    What we definitly need for WH and very likely medieval Mods too is a Knight able to use the keshikanimation without the horses' legs looking broken:




    Also a Knight's Lance would be nice.
