This should work for Vanilla but I havent tested it.
This is the first unit I have made from scratch , by that I mean that I made the whole model and dident modify an existing model. the only thing I dident make is the dwarf , he pops his hesd out of the Tank on bored animation.
The Steam Tank is a strong siege weapon with good armor , it rises up on its frount forks and slams its spiked wheel into wall , buildings and othere siege weponds.
It also has a strong long ranged attack , it seems its greatest weakness is other siege weponds.
Im happy with how this unit turned out with two exceptions.
1. when ths cannon fires the shell comes out in more than one hight , I couldent change that , so I made the shell delay a second before it appears in the air , this helped a bit. in the end it looks pretty good but when it shoots hightest the shell is appearing just above the barrel.
2.I wanted to make the smoke come out directly above the boiler , however in order to do that I need to add attachpoints to the model, at this time it cant be done , but I have been informed that EmjeR is making a tool that will allow you to add attachpoints to a new model sooooo when he finishs it ill come back and update the unit , NO pressure EmjeR.
for now the smoke is only on when it moves, that helps hide the fact that its not coming out of the boiler.
I think I can fix both of the issues I have with this unit with EmjeR,s new tool so hopfully he will finish soon.
I hope you enjoy this and pls let me know what you think I plan to make a few more dwarven unites i still have many ideas , including a mechanical Titan.
Ok first of I never really give ratings cus I cbf but this is such a good mod that I'll give it a shot
(CONCEPT/IDEA) The idea of a mechanical dwarfen steam tank as a seige weapon was brilliant. You noticed that there was only 4 dwarf units and made the dwarfs more intresting with your steam tank.
(TEXTURES/SKINS) The textures were very good and it suited the Steam Tank; I really suck with doing textures but when I see your mods compared to my mod I feel like I am a total noob.
(AUDIO/SOUNDS) The sounds were good, I don't know if you acctually did the sounds with your own voice or you just edited your voice to make it sound diffrent; GUNS DONT KILL PEOPLE I DO! HE HE my favourite sound file :)
(MODEL) When I saw the model it was smaller than I thought, I still think it should of been bigger.
(ANIMATIONS) The animations were awesome, instead of just the steam tank falling over and dying like a normal unit it blew up which was cool and the firing was nice how the gun moved up and then shot.
Additional Comments: Overall I think you deserve a 5/5 for your effort and producing a mod which looks really awesome.
(QUESTION) How long did it take you to make the mod?

Textures: Extremely well done. Beautiful actually!
Animations: Moves great - the spiked roller and crush attack is tremendous. The smoke/steam is an awesome addition. The ranged attack is not so impressive...seems kind of wimpy to me... :)
Originality: Completely new and original. Nothing else compares. Brilliant idea.
Unit Settings: The icon is ok. The sounds are really good. No history file, but that's not important to me.
Additional Comments: Simply one of the very best mods ever created for this game. Tremendous work CrazyDragon!
