How can we create models if we dont have an demo with the unit files?(sorry if its an idiot question,im not a good programer)

Simply.
Download Blender and create models of units with about 300 faces. When propper models are released, you'll just scale your models to propper size (remeber, it is just bunch of vectors, so scaling doesn't hurt them at all, unlike raster graphics)

However,i can make some non-compromised researchs,tell me,what are you planing civs?(to i try to research)

Great.
You are free to research any nation you'd like in game. In mod "For Honour and Glory" I'm in research of Byzantines and Bohemians, so if you can choose another ones (or comment my posts about research with your ideas).

BTW, if you speak about mod "For Honour and Glory" perhaps it would be good to post questions and so in appropriate thread and not confuse this one. If not, perhaps Tathar will answer you better. Thanks.

Ok,lets start with civilization ideas(I choose a timeline from 1606 to 1775)

-The Kingdom of Spain
-The Kingdom of England
-The Kingdom of Portugal
-The Kingdom of France
-The Republic of Netherlands
-The Kingdom of Sweden

And ideas for native american nations,but I have no idea yet on how they will play:

-The Iroquois Confederation
-The Maya City-states
-The Hawaiian Kingdom
-The Guarani Tribes
-The Mapuche People
-The Apache People
-The Haida Tribes

Hm. I think, that it would be best if civs differed more. I think, that between Spain and Russia there were bigger differences than few units.

You don't have to gather informations about too many units.
I'd choose one or two nations and gather informations about them and their units as Tathar did with British (perhaps you could be more complex and make units more original).

It also would be cool to make each civ unique if it comes to units until it hurts realism and gameplay.

Just imagine that you are modder. What do you need to know to create one nation? How unique it will be ....

BTW, these pictures are cool and it is viable to post them if you want to present some unit.

My suggestions are also:
Austria-Hungaria
Prussia
Turks
Saxony
Polish (I'd love to command group of Polish pride - Husaria - Winged Hussars)
Japan (would you really forget Samurais and Kensais, me not)
China
Perhaps Americans won't hurt, but their implementation would be somehow difficult.

1) Ooops, I didn't count with it. I'm from Czech Republic.

2) I appreciate your willingness to help. But if you can't do it from stated resons, than I don't know how could you help.

Perhaps history research could fit you well. Simply choose some nation and find some info about its history and especially military in these times.

I'm not sure if Tathar mentioned time period in his mod, but if it will be sequel to my mod I guess, that it will start at the end of 15th century and end in 18th century or so.

If you need any help with :

Poland, Russia, Iroquis, Aztecs, Inca, Mapuche (if these are here) or generally ANYTHING from the XVIth and XVIIth century I have enough knowledge to assist this mod with necessary information.

I am largerly responsible for Pike and Musket mod for TW series and I have most of reseacrch already done.


BTW Poland was indirectly a colonial power for a couple of years - its vasal state Courland had Tobago untill it was taken by the Dutch in 1660s.

I guess, that this mod has timeframe which will fit you best.
I think, that it takes part in same time as your PMTW mod.
So you are free to post anything relating your mod, I think.

Those names aren't definite, just descriptions of the soldier.

I disagree that the chief should be a rifleman. Iroquois chiefs had capes over their right shoulders, like the one in the picture I posted. The sprite you posted just looks like a regular Great Lakes soldier to me, not even necessarily Iroquois.

The Inca also did not have horizontal feather headdresses like the ones pictured in those sprites, they actually had front-to back ones or none at all, if I remember right.

Well,the problem is that the rifleman looks like too much with the tomahawk.The sprite is from american conquest,i dont think its good enough to be the iroquois chief,it was only a sugestion.
