Default An excellent on-line unit database!

I found this fantastic online unit database that seems to list (with photos) every unit in Dominions III. It's a Chinese website but that shouldn't hinder your ability to use it.

I apologize if the site has been linked before:

Hmmm, perhaps I ought to have curbed my enthusiasm somewhat: I realize that a lot of the individual unit links are broken, and hence you cannot always see the unit stats.

Nonetheless, I think some folks (esp. modders) might find the link useful.

It's the chinese Wiki site that I have mentioned a few times in the past already, yes. They started this some time after the Dom3 release in 2006. It's primarily meant as a resource for chinese players that can't speak English, I guess.

Yep. Chinese Wiki was originally constructed by several players in order to help those who like this game but have difficulty understanding English, thus it's basically Chinese. However, there are some contents that both English and Chinese descriptions are available:
magic (a few missing): http://www.letscorp.net/wiki/farm/do...ic/School.html
pretenders (more than half done) : http://www.letscorp.net/wiki/farm/do...nions/God.html
heroes (almost done, not quite sure): http://www.letscorp.net/wiki/farm/do...gory/Hero.html
and the all-units page Epaminondas posted, which is the most under developed area.

This is extremely helpful to me-thank you for posting it! And thanks to you too, Ich, I just wish I had noticed it earlier.

Quick bump, because of the usefulness of this database.

Thanks for the follow-up links. It's faster than looking through Edi's database for certain things

We have a dominions wiki. But it doesnt get the attention it should. We could all help create a database like this in english.

Or if someone wanted to do something with webpages and links I would gladly host it.

That would be an enormous tool for modders, especially if the original sprites were present in a form that was easily copyable and modifiable. I've been using some of the sprites on there as models, but they're of limited use, as some of them I can't copy onto this computer, and they're extremely distorted, as well.

You are aware of the unit sprites in the modding resources list from the mod list thread, HB, yes? Because that sounds like you're a year and a few patches away from it.
