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

Indeed, there is already a thread about Byzantines:

Byzantine buildings by Warsmithy/Catbarf for age of empires 2hd:

The building are too much stereotypical, mostly of them I don't like the barrack, the house, the blacksmith. the shape is very exaggerated compared with a real one, some building look to much "expensive". the gather is awful. the roof look Asian. the dock have 3 chimneys.

@stanislas69 @Alexandermb Should this faction be the next in the priority list?

Could we let them use Lordgood's Spartan buildings pack as their building placeholders?

If someone could create a unit roster for me, I think I can start working on their actor files.

Asking for opinions and suggestions.

@LordGood @Nescio @Sundiata @Lion.Kanzen @wowgetoffyourcellphone plus anyone else who might be interested in this development. :)

"Byzantine" is a modern term to cover twelve centuries. Rather than trying to contain all that anachronistically in a single civilization, you should chose a single period or dynasty and base your faction on that.

What would be the 500 - 1000 Ad most prominent faction / kingdom ?

A valuable thing that you want add? because we knows that. Byzantine is a modern term for eastern Romans. we can split by dynasties for now.

So I tried to create a civilization .JSON file for the Byzantines. I copy-pasted a pre-existing civilization .JSON and replaced the necessary inputs. However I'm getting errors when testing them in-game.
