    Hi Yan! I wanted to be the first to congratulate you on such beautiful animations and units. I managed to look at the bifs but will need to create their lbms to fully enjoy the mod, which shouldn't take more than five minutes by the way. I am planning to try your mod tomorrow by playing the classical campaign so I will give more feedback later. In a word, your mod is an excellent surprise to me. Thanks!

    Thank you Leith, i appreciate that! It might be easier to use the "raw" png icons http://www.mediafire.com/download/ck...0dow/icons.zip

    If you want your lbms to be included in the mod, just let me know and i'll do that with proper crediting. Can't wait to read your feedback and playthrough!

    Hi Yan! I played a few custom battles just to test your new units and I enjoyed your units' fluid animations, certainly the touch of a pro. What is even as interesting is the stat balance. Visually and statically, your units fit perfectly into the original MTW theme.

    However this fun experience was marred by a few things: the weapons in particular looked they needed some more work. The black dots on the unit icons were not very enjoyable too. I feel that if you postponed the release for a few more days, this would have been one of the best mini mods for MTW. That said, I hope you will continue to improve this mod and perhaps add a few more beautiful animations like the ones you created. The MTW community needs fine talents like yourself. Thank you!

    Hey all, 3 months passed but i haven't been able to get back to MTW yet. I was offered a full-time job as 3d modeler and i'm learning new software which will improve my skills hopefully.

    Hey Yang! Good to hear from you! I know what you mean. I have not been working on my mod as much as I wanted to for the same reason, although my line of work is very different. Anyway I have a request! Please don't give up on this mod because your new units look fantastic. I promise to help with the new unit icons once you have gotten the shields/weapons properly positioned. Even in their current state your new units beg to be further modded! Good luck with the new job my friend!

    Hi Leith! Thank you for the good wishes and the help.

    Now is the time to say that all modders are free to use my battle figures, the info_pics are processed by Axalon and there is also his copyright to follow.

    Just to be clear here...

    Any work or material that I created/co-created for this mod - was done explicitly for this mod, and no other... Thus, the info-pics are all to be regarded as restricted material at all times. If people want to use any info-pics from this mod - this in any fashion whatsoever - they must first secure permission from me as well - as Yan already granted permission on his behalf.

    As for getting permissions in this case... It all depends on the context, for instance what other materials are involved or included in the intended project, what the end result looks like, the size of the project and a bunch of other factors - usually the answer from me is typically a "no permissions granted" - as that makes all things a lot easier for me that way. And, as a standing rule - I will never give permission to anything blindly.

    Still, people are free to ask anyway (via PM would be advisable)...

    - A
