    :lol:

    love to but i'm an invalid when it comes to gfx/palettes.

    if i knew how, it'd probably be different.

    is there a tutorial for it? it's psp that you use?

    Yeah, psp 4 to be exact (good old psp 4 ;) ) Its not so difficult, really. You open a flic file with flicster and export it into a pcx file, then you open the pcx with psp (or photoshop) and copy the head (just one per direction) and paste it onto the other pcx drawings. Then you save it, open flicster and save the storyboard as a new flc file. Tadaaa!

    some day i'll try and become proficient w/ that.

    look, take your time w/ the conversions.

    also, i'd like to see a mosaic of your conversions like the way you arrange wyrmshadow's sea units.

    now that would be impressive!

    keep up the good work mate ;-)

    While you are waiting for those German revamps et al, go check out two (2) new commonwealth units in the unit section or the first page of this thread...

    A little spoiler of what's comming at you with the next unit pack- what support units should each civ get in particular (i.e. HMG, AT, Flamethrower?)

    excellent work W.I.N.T.E.R.

    support units? uh...i would say an anti-tank gun maybe? i dunno.

    i would love to see a Gatling Gun unit but that's another matter for another day (& another era/war).

    any chance you can add a paradrop anim to some of these units. I know a fallshirm was done before but it would cooler with firaxis unit. But maybe doing the reduce size of the unit and then a paradrop would be a REAL nice touch!

    Yes, in each frame, always keep 2 pixels of background along the right edge of the frame. It's a flicster bug : if one pixel touches the right edge, then it's kept on the next frame

    Convoy Usage: If you already downloaded Wyrmshadow's Liberty ship on its own this makes up perfectly as a more sophisticated unit:

    Cost= 2x Liberty ship + (1/2)x Jaskolka (ie. a bit cheaper than as if bought separately)
    Resources= Liberty ship + Jaskolka + X (expensive, resource-wise)
    Range= Liberty ship (the slowest ship determines the average speed)
    Attack/Defence= Jaskolka (i.e. escort destroyer/mine sweeper) -1 (destroyers are limited to act within sight of convoy)

    Note: Make this one available alongside the Liberty/Landing Tank ships, this is NOT an upgrade but an additional parallel UU for America(if the resources and economic standard allow)
