This was made a long time ago trying to follow somehow the rome range "Byz Range".  

Indeed, there is already a thread about Byzantines:

It's beautiful. But still has too much polygons.

I mean if people start spamming those this will make the game unplayable.

Run decimate on it and see what happens.

around 28k before breaking some faces specially windows, it breaks the uv's but seems that can be fixed.

28k is better. Though still too much depending on the usage that's gonna be made. Is there a way windows could be planes ? Like baking the window on the texture.

About filling the gap. If it wasn't already that high poly I would have suggested either tombstones and/or railings around it along with some vegetation.

Maybe for gameplay configuration wonders should only be built 1 per faction, for example there is 4 byzantines in one game only the 1st one on built it could have it the others should destroy it or capture it to have it too. Not even with AoE2 i can imagine people built dozen of wonders neither the same one since players are just hyped by factions some time and then play another i just can't imagine people building 10+ hagia sophia on a map for have huge lag + the amount of buildings of trees sometimes player don't even built them so is just like having 3 wonders or 2 in a single mesh wich isn't a big risk compared to the 50k - 43k

Since Byzantine monumental architecture was several orders of magnitude greater than any other civilization during this period (I think), maybe an exception can be made for them? Having the same poly count for the Hagia Sophia as for whatever other structure you can think of from that period would be a little weird, no?? I don't know what I'm talking about when it comes to poly counts though, just emphasizing the fact that the Hagia Sophia is absolutely enormous...

i can only imagine the colosseum reaching the feets of the hagia sophia poly amount since both has several arcs and curves wich are the most poly consuming and the one the game has is somehow simple at first look wich doesn't give the impression or feeling as a wonder

Yeah, I just hope we won't have to simplify it later :)

Maybe with deep and carefull look could be optimized around 2 or 3k more, but right now i'm like let it bee for a while, maybe some year an alpha could be dedicated to clean every building non seen faces if everyone with blender knowledge agree.
