Sauron as a Special Unit

Post by Hyacintho » Wed Jul 21, 2021 11:30 pm

Yo!

I mark my return to this forum with a desire to see Sauron implemented as a special unit in Age of Fantasy. Graphics are provided below.
Though its been a long time since I've coded for units, I believe I can do this as well, though any help on this front is much appreciated.

Hmm I really like Sauron, if it were possible I would marry this handsome man. But in his elven form, it would be possible to refine his hands, the hand with the knife is shorter than the other and is twisted unnaturally.

AoF won't be implementing map editor or fun units like those for now..

Due to engine limitations, Savra is only allowed to put in regular and producible units.
When Stratego upgrades the engine, it may be put in.
Something. Something.

Duly noted about the Fun Unit Policy. I plan on creating the JSONs anyway, just in preparation for the future, and to get back in the groove of coding for units. I will post the JSONs here when completed.

About the Tar Mairon graphic, I understand the criticism. Try to look at the left arm as positioned behind his back, rather as positioned in front of his chest. It makes far more sense. I will modify the graphic to make this more apparent.

Are you planning on making a campaign with them on it?

No, I just think he'd be a nice addition to the LoTR themed units in the game. Besides, I've already made the graphics so I thought "why not?"
I am in no rush to have these implemented.

Hmm, can you make Black Sauron's hand extended palm upward with gnarled fingers? It would be epic.
