@Trinketos I could add this to your mod but it will lack some of the props as the props that I used are from the Zapotec art assets by Lordgood.

When i back from mexico i will make props for the mexicas.

@Trinketos, I think your model for the Aztec Civic Center looks pretty cool. The thing is that it reminds me a lot more of Mayan palatial buildings than Aztec. It looks particularly reminiscent of the Mayan palace at Palenque. Aztec elite residences used extensive use of white lime plaster, with some bright red highlights, like a red band running along the lower part of the building (maybe even the occasional red floor). They had flat roofs, inner courtyards and decorated colonnades. Oddly, they have an almost Minoan feel to them... 

This rendition of Moctezuma II's palace in Tenochtitlan is the finest reconstruction I've seen to date, and provides you with an excellent idea for Aztec palaces (which should ideally be your reference for the Aztec CC):

I understand that that structure is little bit too huge for a CC, but since it's modular, you could use either the courtyard structures in the foreground, or the elevated part in the middle as you're reference for a CC.

 

I shared some of the following images in the previous reference post, but I'll share them again here, as the above image of the palace puts them in context:

@Trinketos A very handsome list! I never even heard of some of them... All very interesting histories, it seems.

I know it's a long list and huge task to get done, but I'm a dreamer, and just wanted to suggest three more candidates for a more rounded representation of Pre-Columbian civilizations:

  • Teotihuacan (one of the most significant Pre-Columbian civilizations ever, very influential/ancestral/ maybe too old?)
  • Ancestral Puebloans, sometimes referred to as Anasazi (pretty unique stuff here, and their descendants are still around today, some still living in ancient pueblos)
  • Mound Builders (together with the Puebloans they provide some representation for the USA, might generate wider interest) 

I'm aware that Mound Builders and Puebloans are generic names referring to any number of cultures, but since they share a certain material culture and are usually discussed on a whole, it could work out quite well.

Terra Magna appears, because I play against the Zapotecs

@Trinketos if you want I can help you with your mod such as could create necessary documents (Announcement, changelog, screenshots, mod.io page, moddb not since I do not have full rights there yet and so on, technically I could help you such as testing and compatibility not artistically though.
