View Full Version : Grey Zephyr- A Custom Advance Wars Army

August 3rd, 2007, 1:51 PM
Welcome to Grey Zephyr (GZ for short). This was made by myself for the game Custom Wars, a custom Advance Wars game written in Java to run on a computer. I will not advertise the forums, but if you're interested you can look it up on google.
And for those who know the game AW itself, there are some custom units included. A lot are also unfinished, and they seem pretty obvious.

The Spritesheet
Separate Logos

The crimson palette (by kosheh)

The 'Darkstar', The Official logo of Grey Zephyr, it is placed as a seal onto the CPU of all Grey Zephyr robotics.
The 'Star of Zion', often called the Ethereal Star is reserved for dossiers and diplomatic contact- It is treated as a sign of peace



This is Xan Kreigor from UT2004. I will make this mre AWish in a while.


Infantry animation, by me (now in both directions)
Artillery (See Credits)




Infantry: Based off Xan Kreigor from Unreal Tournament 2004, with the standard Assault Rifle.

Missile Mech: Grey Zephyr version of the nayed unit.
Mortar: Grey Zephyr version of the hated unit.
Recon: Update to the new mini version. Now with a gatling
APC: Is currently under verification
Anti-Air: Custom apart from the guns, which have been altered. Fine as far as i know.

[These are my impressions. Please add your own]
