Swineherd Stampede v1.0
by Baak

Dedicated to: The Members and Special Guests of the Order of H'Pak (OoH)
Original Swineherd unit by Bungie
Last Updated: 2005-12-16

NOTICE: This plugin requires Project Magma's Myth II 1.6 (Build 290 or greater). Using earlier versions may cause OOS errors or crashes.

My tweak of Bungie's highly underutilized Swineherd unit, which I include on my Leagues from Somewhere Map Mod, now available as a stand-alone tagset for most standard stampede games on virtually any map.

Interesting and Unique Features:

  • A re-wired (and brutal!) Swineherd "Axe attack" - don't get too close to these guys!
  • Appropriate and funny unit names (they were missing in the original unit)
  • Enhancements to behavior that take advantage of advanced features from Project Magma's 1.5/1.6 Myth II Patches
  • Repaired "soft death" (this looked very odd before and appeared unfinished/broken)
  • A funny (and slightly rude) Taunt/Celebration!

I think you'll like 'em. They make Stampede a bit more interesting.

Just add this plugin to most standard Stampede games and enjoy the ride! :)
