    Here's my new Vader Tie Fighter Unit

    Since the gif image doesnt contain any data on frame rate, this preview is super fast.....i guess you'll just have to download the unit to see it in real time ;)

    http://forums.civfanatics.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=15032

    preview is attached





    EDIT: Forgot to thank Vuldacon for the awesome palette help :)

    Polyphemus... I believe you must have Uploaded the .bmp files by mistake because that is what is in the .rar from your Link here.

    polyphemus... I made a Civ Specific colored units_32.pcx and Large and Small Civilopedia images for your unit if you want them.

    ..here is a 100 x 100 .png image you can use for the Unit Database if you want it.

    yeah i is, but im trying to get a digital download, and the site I use, direct2drive.com for some reason doesnt have it. I need a digital download cuz im in the military (air force academy) and am constantly moving dorms and since my family lives just off base i move there a lot too. So i constantly lose cds even though i put all of them in one place, friends randomly borrow them and such...so i need a digital copy...

    Hey, can anyone who tried this unit in game let me know how the sounds work out. Like, are they synced properly and do they even sound accurate?

    Thanks

    Very nice! :)

    Wait, there's an easy way to do palletes? :eek: That is the number one factor in me doing more M-units actually.

    I was looking for the Tie in the database, and it looks like it is not in a category, it would fit in the Sci-Fi (futuristic) category of Civ 3 units. You should be able to put it there by editing the download post.
