    @Tomcelmare Did you continue to do research about the Anuradhapura Kingdom?

    Hello balduin, I'm sorry but I don't have much time these days...I'm working full time and my week ends are mostly spent outside (this saturday being an exception!) What I can say though, is that I've never given up on anything yet, so I will most likely dig deeper into the Anuradhapura kingdom history, when I'll have time.

    I agree with you, for a civ to be of interest, you need more materials, more distinctive features. That's what I'm looking for, features that would distinguish sinhalese ancient kingdom from the mauryas in terms of military units, tactics, etc. Unfortunateley, I haven't found that yet...

  2. It would be really great if you designed a zapotec woman villager instead of the egyptian placeholder...I think there are plenty references now in the concerned topic...my idea would be a woman with braids, and a dress in one piece (huipil)...

    Just a simple cross or some ornated complex one ?

    For the church, I think a simple one is OK, at least for the next millenium release. Later on, you'll be able to make a more ornated one ;) It's just that it was shocking not to have one at all...But if anyone has another idea about the cross...Otherwise, I don't have much time these days but I'll try to find some references soon :)  

  4. @Alexandermb Good. But it needs a bigger dome ;) Don't forget a big, golden cross on top, and add some crosses to the church too, it's important to emphasize this aspect of Byzantium. It was a stronghold of christianity for 1000 years, and it should strike the eye immediately :)

    Tweaked texture colors, also using the Roman texture for rooftiles:




    @wowgetoffyourcellphone Yes! The colours are warmer, more vibrant, and yet, softer to the eye this way! The buildings should all be like these :) A golden cross on the top of the church should be good too!

  6. It's true the current dome looks like a chimney from some kind of industrial revolution era building...making the building not so dark, and maybe adding some gold woould improve the general looking, for me at least, because byzantines used to be the wealthiest power of their time, and they were not shy about it ;)
