Modders have knocked it out of the park again! Amazing what's possible these days. I tested this thing in-game and it feels almost official quality, the textures and animations are great and the unit really packs a punch.

    This thing works well.


    It has a main cannon that you control when you order it to fire.


    Then it has hand gunners on the deck and cannons on either side that all fire independently and while moving.

    I forgot to mention this: It also comes with a Regiment of Renown as well as Malakai Makaiison as a legendary hero, who can take the Spirit of Grungni as a mount.

    I remember modded units some times ago... simple reskins and kitbashes. Now, we're approaching professional level. Mods like this are a testament of the community's ingenuity.

    Looks pretty cool. Side cannons fire at once, if you face frontally then only the single front cannon fires. Few riflemen atop fire too seperately.




    Wish there was a version with organ guns though.

    And with melee order, it dives in like gyrocopters and starts ramming stuff. Cannons keep firing while in melee. Wish them rotors sliced and diced as well tho.



  • Mr_Finley7Mr_Finley7 Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 6,967
    I feel like this thing shouldn't have any melee capabilities, just the deck gunners to drive attackers away. In any case, it looks absolutely amazing.

    If only the Coatl got this level of professionalism and inspiration lol

    Yeah, I doubt it would be able to control it's altitude well enough to engage in any sort of melee. Should be reliant on its gunners for defense. It would be vulnerable to air-monsters, but not too bad -- consider how the skinks and goblins on the backs of things still fire while the monster is in melee. It does need SOME weakness, after all.

    But inclusion of something like that would mean some races need cost/balance adjustments and unit additions to fight it.

    Greenskins for instance would *really* need their spear chukkaz and stuff. They need all their ****ing anti large options.

    BUT ANYWAY

    Once a modder shows CA a thing is possible, they usually make a version for the base game. So consider this coming.

    I think a unit with no melee cannot mechanically work in the game.

    Better melee animations than the Coatl damn

    I'm not a fan of gyrocopters/gyrobombers/thunderbarges having a 'melee' attack. Plowing a flying machine straight into the ground to crash into some dudes below you seems like an inherently bad idea... :s

    Its very underpowered atm though imo.

    even if you position so that both side shoot, it doesnt repay itself and the front cannon doesnt do enough damage, so you end up with not much control over damage done and can only position and hope.

    Looks awesome though! Hope they rebalance a bit.
