Bob-Omb Battlefield (King Bob-omb) SM64

Look at my splendid mustache. It's fit for a king! Ho ho! Your mustache makes you look like the peasant you are. What a sad little thing.
~King Bob-omb

Adds Bob-omb Battlefield (SM64) under rule of King Bob-omb to the game.

UA: Short Fused:
Upon training a Combat Unit, a Bob-omb civilian Unit is spawned as well. Two Bob-ombs spawn if you train a Unique Unit or build a Unique Building.
Gains double Coal Resources. Coal yields +1 Production

UU: Chuckya (Replaces the Cannon):
A Siege Unit that really shines in terms of Utility rather than raw Damage.
After it attacks an Enemy Unit, it throws away an adjacent Enemy Unit at the end of your turn, dealing Damage to that Unit per travelled Tile and increasing if the Unit lands on a Land-Tile.
The thrown Unit will also receive a Movement Penalty the next turn if it lands on a Land-Tile. If stationed on a Hill, it can throw Enemies further away.

UB: Bob-omb Factory (Replaces the Factory):
Bob-ombs spawned in this City deal double their Damage when Exploding.
Increases the Production of Bob-omb Battlefield''s Unique Units by 50%, and is cheaper to Maintain and Produce.
Requires 3 Sources of Coal instead of 1.

Bob-omb's acquired through the UA:
A Civilian that replaces no existing Unit. Cannot be trained or bought, and is instead granted whenever Bob-omb Battlefield trains a Unit in one of their Cities. Two are granted instead if this is a Unique Unit, or if a Unique Building is constructed. Buying a (Unique) Unit or Unique Building does not spawn a Bob-omb.
Bob-ombs are suicidal Units that deal damage to adjacent Units by Exploding. Has limited visibility and gains the ''Short Fuse'' Promotion. Costs no Maintenance.
Short Fuse (promotion): Whenever any Enemy Unit enters a tile adjacent to this Unit, this Unit will lit its Fuse. 3 Turns later, this Unit will Explode, dealing 10 Damage to adjacent enemy Units.
If another Bob-omb happens to explode next to this Unit, this Unit will also Explode instantly, dealing 15 damage to adjacent Enemy Units.

Leader and Playstyle:
Bob-omb Battlefield is led by King Bob-omb. King Bob-omb is an easy-to-befriend Leader and a Loyal Ally. He won't be afraid to go to war, and is protective over City States. King Bob-omb likes leaders with splendid Mustaches like his. Bob-omb Battlefield has a tendency to start near Hills.
King Bob-omb shines in the mid-game Industrial Era, where he can finally utilize his Coal Bonus from his UA and where unlocks his Unique Building.
It ensures that he can build his Unique Unit, the Chuckya, faster which is a great Unit in terms of Utility and breaking through Enemy Defenses. It also makes sure that Bob-ombs spawned in that City deal increased Damage, which can quickly add up in terms of Damage once you have a few of them.
Bob-omb Battlefield is guaranteed to be a major powerhouse in terms of military strength in this era, so get ready to blow up warmongering foes with large Military Strength. Use your Bob-ombs defensively early, as you have relatively few bonuses pre-Industrial era.

A Leaderscreen

Pretty good

I know there's a Mushroom Kingdom Graphics mod out there which places Goomba Unit-graphics in the game (for Barbarian Units), so I'm probably gonna end up looking in there as a base/reference. I've not played with it myself so I don't know how it actually looks like in-game, but from the showcase art it looks REALLY good. (Luckily for me, Goomba's share quite a few similair features to Bob-ombs. E.g. no arms or knees, and they're pretty round)
Don't expect much though till next week for sure, as I've got exams coming up which I'd like to pass :steammocking::sans:

There are a few nice guides on how to utilize blender for that. The problem is that you'd need to use a certain skeleton and animation base for your fsxml files (like the lancer or spearman, whatever) and that'd be pretty hard for these uniques. But again, if you manage to pull it off, major kudos to you

@PHXHRC, Thanks :p2chell:

@Kaizoku_Panic, finding a model isn't that difficult (quite a few models that were ripped from games like SM64/SMG are available online). Moving it into civ5 is probably what is gonna give me trouble, so I'll see if I get that done, if ever. You can of course expect a comment in this comment section if such a thing gets added :steamhappy:
And of course thanks for your kind words :p2cube:

Well done!

Finding a model for the Bob- omb and Chuckya might be hard to do unless you have experience with blender and the like, but apart from that this is a really well made civ imo, especially since there isn't too much source material to go off on. Very original and creative :)
