I was doing nothing for a week so i decided to start my own graphic for a mounted samurai, because i didn't found one in the units the people has submited. I copied & pasted graphics form the cataphract unit and turned it into a samurai, who uses a naginata to fight and has a red leather armor, which isn't very good i guess but i painted it with all my hearth... in the NW (also NE)attacking graphic the horse stays totally quiet while the samurai brandishes his naginata (actually pikeman's spear) sorry for that i didn't remembered to change the horse's legs and tail for that graphic. I may have also some errors placing the anchors, please tell me where i'm specially wrong because i want to do better graphics. Please note i'm new to this and i used only MSPAINT.
The death move and decaying are only in one direction because i didn't wanted to draw another horse coat for each move, which is indeed a very hard thing to do, so my mounted samurai dies and decays in the same direction all time...
Thanks fot the time to read this and please rate my work with all honesty so i can see all my weakpoints exactly and work to be better :)
I wanted to create my own graphic but i realized it was horrible (more than this one) I saw Prince John from Sherwood Mod and i think it's a great drawing. I replaced my old fat king for this unit, it's awesome. Thanks for this and please accept this unit as a token of my appreciation for this great site. Eventually i'll try better and do more units :D
My next project: I'll be changig Forgotten Empires's Elephant Archer: I want the elephant to be darker and his wooden tower will be replaced for a very luxurious one, also, the archer firing will be replaced for the female villager huntress with an armour i'm preparing. I'm not sure if indians or persians used to bring armored archer women in battle, but i want to do it. Look forward to it :D
The "Mounted Samurai" by DonPisky is modpack which have the .slps of a japaneese cavalry.like the other modpacks of the author this modpack also very useful for both scenario designers and modders for japaneese themed scenarios and to add a new heavy cavalry for Asians.
Even it is a very useful unit,I can only give a 3.5 for quality because it have some graphical issues.
1)The attacking graphic dosen`t look like attacking,It looks like the unit is just rotating the spear
2)The horn on the helmet is very highlighted and when the unit is moving south,The spear looks ugly
Additional Comments:Even it has some problems it looks good and I recommend downloading this.
