Róta, Vakyrie Knight (V.03)

Author File Description
File Details
Version: Both
Róta, meaning "sleet and storm" in Old Norse, was a Valkyrie Knight - a blonde, blue-eyed warrior maiden who assisted Odin by choosing which newly slain warriors would enter Valhalla. Róta rode through the air in glistening armor and helped determine the victor of battles and the course of wars. She also served Odin as a messenger, and when she rode forth on such errands, her armor would sparkle, causing the strange atmospheric phenomena known as the Northern Lights.
Róta, who rides high in the air and in the clouds and wind, has learned to harness the power of the sky and clouds, and is able to call upon the elements to use lightning to attack her foes from a distance, which she quickly follows with a devastating lunge with her deadly spear. Her shield was given to her by Reginleif, a fellow Valkyrie warrior and the daughter of Odin. This shield is very powerful and provides excellent defense. During battle, her courage inspires nearby allies to rally and fight even harder.
Once during battle with a Greek army, Róta captured and eventually tamed a pegasus, which she has trained to fight both in the air and on the ground.
Like other Norse heroes, Róta can build and repair all Norse structures. And like other Valkyries, she can call on the powers of the heavens to heal all friendly units. She also has the remarkable power to heal herself.

This is a new unit, based on the Bellerophon model, with several modifications such as a Valkyrie body, Reginlief's shield, and a lightning attack. There is a unit transform button to switch between air and ground units.

This is my first mod...well the first one that I've released so far. But I have tinkered around quite a bit with game modifications, and I am fairly confident that there are no issues with this unit. However, if you encounter any please let me know. I originally wanted to use the Pegasus model for this unit, however the Bellerophon model offered much more versatility. I may eventually switch the flying unit to a Pegasus model, as I don't particularly like the look of a "hovering" horse...especially as I could not figure out how to add mist platforms to the back legs. Therefore, I may revisit this unit at a later time...

Thanks for downloading, and please leave comments!

*EDIT* Changes made to file V.01:

Unit stats modified to lower lightning attack strength and defensive armor.

Unit transform button no longer covers any of the build options.

Air unit automatically converts to ground unit when hitpoints reach 0.

*EDIT* Changes made to file V.02:

Added various ANIM effects in order to make air unit look better, including whirlwind and mist, as well as different light and glow effects.

Exten Great Job, cool unit...
but the thunder special is too powerfull.

Thank you. Yes, I think you're right about that. I have also been thinking that it has too many hitpoints, and/or the armor is too strong. The unit transform button is also a little funky, covering up the armory/forge build button. I'll see if I can get those adjustments made tonight.
WinstonShnozwick WOW, this is something alright. I've been waiting for someone to make use of the unittransform buttons for this, its a genius implementation for unit customs, only problem is addition of the data file. Very great job. My issue is, explain dealing with someone changing the flying unit to the ground unit when above water.
File Author
Thanks for the comments Winston. It never occurred to me to worry about going from air to ground over water...I'll take a look at that. In the mean time, I would just suggest to people to DO NOT DO IT!!

saintdiego22, adding/changing units is not terribly difficult, but it is not so simple either. Please look in the forum: http://aom.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/forums/display.cgi?action=t&fn=19
