After a long break from AoM Modding, I'm back, but this time I'm only making Multiplayer compatible mods.
I made this mod because I liked Dnas' Promethean upgrade texture (included in this pack), but I didn't like the fact that Prometheus was trowing bronze colored Prometheans, when he is himself not bronze colored.
To make it simple:
When Alluvial Clay is researched, Prometheus, Prometheans, Prometean Offsprings and Prometheus Fire Balls have a different texture. When it is not researched they are that same green color from before.
I fixed Prometheus' death animation when upgraded. I tried to make the cinematic animation change texture when upgraded, but failed and realized the problem wasn't the anim file, but the model files. Sorry. :(
Note: This mod will overwrite the Earth Elemental's texture from CrazyDragon's Titan Project.
Dnas for the Prometheans' texture and anim
CrazyDragon for the Earth Elemental model
Okay, lets get down to buisness: I gave it 2 points as a platform average to start from. I gave your mod an additional point because for the texture color, it looked like the promethean units were actually made out of mud and dirt, and they should, because in mythology, the prometheans were made out of clay. Your 4th point came from the texture mod activating when you research alluvial clay. This allows downloaders of the mod to still be able to see the old texture if they like it, and I like this because I mark it as originality, because the name alluvial "clay" just shouts that a new texture should be present when researched. Review edit: There are no problems/bugs with this whatsoever, and so I award you the rare and coveted 5th point! Congratulations!!!
This is quite a good looking mod. I really liked the new color for the promethean units. I do think they look more realistic now and with the alluvial clay activating it, I can still enjoy the old texture. I did download it and playtest it before I wrote this review. Oh, and if you aren't too busy, I suggest that you make new textures for the other atlantean myth units to make them look better. Very impressive job!!!

Excellent, this mod looks great. It is one of those simple yet effective mods. I am taking it you justr changed the hue of the texture to make it darker? Either way the unit looks much more realistic now, it looks like it was made from clay and dirt. Very well done.
Changing it so that the texture changed when the alluvial clay upgrade was made was smart, every other unit changes when they upgrade, so why shouldn't this one :p.
