Nice mod, like the simple idea of taking the Io icon and use it to improve the otherwise very ugly argus. Keep on with the textures, it's a very creative part of modding. :)

All I can say is wow. This texture is very good looking with the shadows and such, (I could never do that with paint ;D) and I love the new color. As SirThobus pointed out, and I do very much agree, this makes the argus when upgraded look very much less hideous. It empolys the upgrade texture factor, a favorite of mine, and is flawless in the animations, nothing is missing. I salute you! Review edit: I do agree that I was too generous here as you pointed out nick, so I put you as a four stars. Perfection is difficult to obtain after all.
Additional Comments: Amazing work, you've done it again, nick. I quite enjoy these textures of yours. I have an idea here for you. - The automaton, a new texture for it when you upgrade it with the volcanic forge and/or hepasteus revenge. I have thought of a texture, but I suck at paint. It is like the black space between the automaton armor, the chinks in the armor or whatever, fill them with color yellow or stuff to make it look golden in the cracks. And by the way, the lampedes myth unit looks kind of boring and ugly how it is now. ;B But dont just listen to me, do what you see fit to make quality textures.

Yes, it's normal that the Argus has it's standard texture in the editor. The new texture is only applied when Io Guardian is researched.

Could you do the same for the Sphinx's two upgrades. The In-Game inventory of the researches (if you right-click the research in the temple) states that the last upgrade has eagle head etc. but it's still the normal human headed sphinx. And the researches also have good images about the upgrades so could you do that?
