Hi Thor,

latest updates on new units (3D model) You already looked here ? :

Souly's topic "Myth New n Tasty" http://tain.totalcodex.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6828

Now, you making the process ? Then, for this : to make new units and scenarios, You must know how to work with the tools "fear / loathing / Oak"

I work with these tools for a long time. and still not know everything.

also, these link, you found new units / scenery / model etc. http://hl.udogs.net/files/Uploads/%20User%20Uploads/SoulBlasters%20Uploads/bag_of_tags/

help you ?

Yes, thanks. What I was meaning to ask though, is how would I make a units plugin? I already know more or less how to use fear and loathing, I just don't know how to make a plugin only affecting units.

Thor,

You need to know and learn to use the OAK tool of "Magma Project".

As to the sprites / images : someone who works with 3D modeler must provide the sprites / images to you. then just put in Oak which will create a file "collections" for you to create units in fear.

look at this example below, I making a Unit medieval archer :

One more question, where would I find a guide to use Oak, and a download?

Thor,

I'm afraid no such guide exists.

the link to download, you should request the administrators forum : melekor, Myrd and Pyro (the magma project staff)

But about Oak Tool, you play around with it, figure stuff out, if you have specific questions try asking people on the mapmaking forum. The purpose of most of those should be self explanatory based on the names. Exactly how they are used is more difficult, but I'm not sure what else I can suggest given that there is no tutorial available.

Julio :)

Julio,
Thanks so much, you have been very helpful. I shall tinker with it during the next couple of days, and go from there. Thanks again!
