Odd, this is only an edit from what I saw before, and yet the forum software marked it as unread for me....

obviously TSI's awesome powers go beyond the summoning of artistically talented felines :P

on another note entirely, awesome job on this, I'm gonna include this in IoA just so I can see it in action (again, and again, and again, throughout playtesting)

Ranger M: no magic here - when I edit before anybody's replied, i copy the contents of the old post, delete it and make a new one, to ensure that people see it ;)

Water Serpent, DONE.

I don't think i'd be wrong in saying that this is the most animation-complete unit in UMC... might need a little tweaking using the submerge parameter in the south-facing frames so that the tail is underwater, but that's it.

EDIT: forgot the attack icon...

That looks great TSI, I hope your plans on IRC to convince campaign authors to make use of it works. I played around with it in the water hexes and it looks amazing. This calls for a river ford ambush scenario.

You've obviously never seen the Marauder Boatsman line. ;)

Get a death animation, a picking-up-boat animation, a dropping-boat animation, and different melee attacks for when in water versus when on land, then we'll talk.

(Though admittedly the Boatsman doesn't have directional melee attacks.)

And in, from the IE, the Marauders and Lavinians are pretty well animated, including deaths (though most of the other factions don't have any animations at all).

I feel spoken to.

Well... I'll throw some pixels around. Maybe even tonight (but probably not)... my schedule might be somewhat clear sometime soon.

Shadow_Master, I presume you have a unit .cfg file for the water serpent, or TSI. Would either of you be kind enough to post it if you have time to save me making a whole new one?

Alternatively, it's in the zip.

Although the one on UMC-Dev is likely more up-to-date.
