Very easy. Bullock carts have existed in the subcontinent sense the Indus civ and still exist in modern times.

Here's a nice cart..

Make it less ornate I guess and without that lion head. I like those openings on the cart above too. Looks like the railing design that pops up all the time in the reliefs.

Found a relief of a cart design from that period. I'm sure there were many designs.

Thanks for the references lilstewie (y)

Making the cart won't take very long, but modeling, texturing, and animating the ox is another story. We may have to use a horse for now.

I'll do it. Sounds easy and fun to do.

Expect updates after the holidays season :)

You'll model, texture, and animate the ox for us? Great (y)

Well, I suppose I could try.

As long as someone rigs the ox model that I'm supposed to model - given that I'm sucessful on that task - I think I can do it.

I need to start animating either way. Maybe this is a good opportunity for me.

I can try, but I'd need someone with experience to review it, as I never did a rig from scrath - I mostly used Blender's rigfy add-on, but it doesn't works ingame and only for bipeds...

I am not an animator. But that doesn't stops me to learn it.

Anyways, I've started to research the ox anatomy.

I'll dump what I find interesting here. If someone comes up with something better, please post it here too.

I played around with the wildebeest mesh and matched those references and others, if someone wants to try to texture I'll post it here.

I feel like the hump on its back should be more pronounced and the body should be fatter.

Hmm... actually to my experience living in Nepal for 3 months, something like this (buffalo cart) is much more common than oxen carts.

Not sure about Mauryan time though ;)

True, water buffaloes are there, but I think Zebus were used more.

Zebu = Ox.

There are several races/types of cattle, you know :P I was asking just to be sure if it was the Zebu type that I should look foward to model.

Anyways, interesting piece of info and references on the wikipedia page - I know those are for myself, but keeping then togheter will work just fine.

I'm Indian, and I would say that ox carts are most prevalent now, and, based on my knowledge of ancient India, in the Mauryan period.
