Recommended Posts

Could someone remove those vertical black lines resembling arrow slits (yellow) from Roman walls and also the SPQR (red) from the Roman walls and fortress?

Whilst arrow slits are appropiate for forts, towers, etc., city walls tend to be solid up to the battlements.

SPQR is an iconic and popular symbol for Rome. However, it was first attested only in the 1st C BC, perhaps during Sulla's dictatorship. Maintaining the fiction that the senate and people of Rome were de jure in charge, while de facto they were not, boosts legitimacy. SPQR was part of the imperial propaganda throughout the principate.

Since 0 A.D.'s Romans are supposed to be primarily based on the Roman Republic during the Punic Wars (3rd C BC), usage of SPQR is anachronistic. Therefore it's better to remove it from walls and other structures.

(Also from shields, sails, banners, etc., but that's a separate, much larger task.)

High windows work well for letting out smoke too, chimneys aren't always necessary
