    This is a simple unit, it took less than a day to make. Thanks to Utah for releasing his horseman setup. And SoG for the Pallettes.

    Unit:http://www.civfanatics.net/uploads11/ZebraRaider.zip

    Note: This unit is game tested. Best works with the sounds from Ancient Calvery

    So presumably, like Dom Pedro II's unit, the idea is that this is a fictional unit with a horse painted to look like a zebra? Because, of course, zebras can't be domesticated.

    Looks really good, though. Very violent attack!

    Wow, that looks really good, Shiro. Nice job. Like Plotinus said, "Very violent attack!" :)

    One thing I noticed is that in the victory animation, the rider's left hand moves away from the zebra's neck. If this was on purpose, I would suggest increasing the movement so that it really looks intentional. Of course, I wouldn't redo this unit just because of that--just something to keep in mind for your next unit.

    Why wouldn`t you be able to domesticate a zebra? Its a friggin` wild horse...
    I`m sure men of ancient times got their butts kicked and faces bitten off by nice, pretty, "Barbie`s school of riding" horsies too, but that didn`t stop them now did it? ;)

    Great unit Shiro! And its so nice you are joining forces with SoG, I see many, many, many (from Police Academy :)) new units on the horizon.

    [Stormrage] No, zebras just have much more unpredictable temperaments than horses - this is why African armies did not, as rule, field zebra-riding cavalry. Which is a shame, as it would have looked very cool, as this unit amply demonstrates!

    I say the "Second Coming of Civ Three Creation" actually started a while ago, about december, maybe. But its still going.

    And this is sweet.
