Note to self: Next time, check history before modelling a building. Also RTFM.   mausoleum.zip

Quick update. It's still a work in progress. I don't have a lot free time lately, so the little that I have I've been spending it on the Macedonian Wonder.

Small update. Under construction. Working on the front side, based on your suggestions and information.

The motive is simple: why destroy it if it doesn't hurts?

Well, it does hurt in terms of historical accuracy.

But it seems we need special builders able to construct useless eyecandy structures, which does sound nice IMHO :)

Ironically enough, the modeler for the Hanging Gardens was working on replacing it with the Gate of All Nations. lol @Enrique

It is not ironic. I just said it is a very good work and i appreciate it? Is that suppose to mean i think he is upset about it :)

Stonehenge was built by the Wessex peoples way before the Celts where in Britain

Enjoy the Choice :)

I googled two times yesterday night and now, yes i found an article about Wessex people building it. But i also said i think single civs are covering for more. It doesn't matter anyway.

So much buttons in the GUI.

It also came up in the mind, but there must be a room for few button. I thought about if multiple choosing is possible, but probably it is not :/ 

However, i got the point ;) Thanks for the answers. I guess the ideas is not welcomed at all. There is nothing much to say.

@sauerkrautpie If this is any consolation, I'll make sure it's still placeable in Atlas as a capturable structure, because some maps may use it. It's also on some maps as an actor.  I guess the main issue with having too many structures is the amount of work for balancing it. Also due to the current way we render the GUI, any new icon has a performance cost multiplied by the number of units selected.

A feature to allow changing what could be built needs https://code.wildfiregames.com/D270

  As pointed out before, that a buildable wonder is replaced with something more appropiate, doesn't mean the old actor is deleted. 0 A.D. contains a lot of unbuildable assets that are available for maps and mods. The newly created Mausoleum looks great and has been added to the public repository.

Stonehenge was built in the third millennium, the Celts arrived in the British Islands during the first millennium. The Uffington White Horse has been roughly dated, but whether it was Celtic or Pre-Celtic depends on whom you ask. Anyway, @Stan` has recently been working on new wonders for both the Britons (see this thread ) and Gauls (see this thread ), which do look promising.

The Hanging Gardens may not look bad, but it is historically problematic. Assuming it really did exist (which is doubtful), it would have been Neo-Babylonian, i.e. predating the Persian Empire. (We don't use the Great Pyramid of Cheops as the Ptolemaic Wonder either.)

Similar to why we want to take the Hanging Gardens from the Persians and give them something more Achaemenid (my vote here is for the Gate of All Nations)

As the new Persian wonder, I'd strongly recommend the Apadana of Darius in Persepolis, an enormous structure which formed the core of the palace terrace, was the location where the Persian king of kings obtained annual tribute from all satrapies, and looked very impressive on both the inside and the outside; by contrast, the Gate of All Nations was little more than a relatively small room with large doors on three sides; have a look at this map (A is #1, GoAN is #4).

@Stan`, shoudn't this thread be renamed to “=== Committed === Mausoleum at Halicarnassus”?

I'd vote for Palace at Pella. It's 100% Macedonian and not peripheral. Similar to why we want to take the Hanging Gardens from the Persians and give them something more Achaemenid (my vote here is for the Gate of All Nations)

 

I'd love for the core game to ship with a bunch of famous ancient buildings, even if they aren't factional wonders. Altar of Pergamon would be awesome to have. Could even eventually have a "Capture the Wonder" game mode that includes these extra wonders in the game.

For DE i think the planned Theban wonder is the Cadmeia.

What do you think of the sanctuary at Dodona as a future Epirote wonder ?

No sé si puedo dar mi opinión o si no la toman con agrado. Doy mi punto de vista como jugador de tantos juegos RTS que he jugado con el tiempo. pero creo que no deberían eliminar edificios o cambiarlos por otros, incluso si no son cronológicamente exactos de quien los construyó, como jugador me gustan este tipo de cosas, por ejemplo, coh de relic, era un juego y ponía muchas unidades, y en coh2 elimino muchas unidades y eso me entristece cuando un juego se vuelve genial cuando hay más cosas.

 

El costo de esto ya es el programa debido a la inestabilidad, ya que leí un mensaje anterior de Stan y las prioridades,

 

@sauerkrautpie  Si esto es un consuelo, me aseguraré de que todavía se pueda colocar en Atlas como una estructura capturable, porque algunos mapas pueden usarlo. También está en algunos mapas como actor. Supongo que el problema principal con tener demasiadas estructuras es la cantidad de trabajo para equilibrarlo. Además, debido a la forma actual en que procesamos la GUI, cualquier ícono nuevo tiene un costo de rendimiento multiplicado por la cantidad de unidades seleccionadas.

Una característica para permitir cambiar lo que se podría construir necesita  https://code.wildfiregames.com/D270

la pregunta es si es muy difícil agregar otro botón para otra maravilla de la misma civilización o es imposible y crea inestabilidad en el programa y el juego.

No los eliminamos. Siguen en el atlas. Y en el repositorio.

@Stan` suggested that I take a shot at this, as well as the Gate of All Nations for the Persians. Here's a work in progress. I can tell you one thing, so far. Working with the Macedonian meshes is most certainly annoying, because they are split up into different files (one for the struct, one for the tiles, one for the props, one for the decorations, etc.). Each of them refers to a different texture file, the majority of which I had to convert from .dds to .png format. Modularity is a great concept for coding, and I suppose that for some artistic things too, but I believe there is indeed something called "too much modularity". Other than these small hassles, the experience has been quite fun so far : P

Looking good, @m7600! The surrounding plants are overkill though, are they part of the palace or your own artistic appeal?

Will this be the future pre-Hellenistic Macedonian wonder, or a palace special building like the Persians?

Also, I got an "Unrecognized phase (phase_city)" warning while reading the Mausoleum and Stonehedge information on Atlas. Is this normal? The rest of the wonders have no warning attached though.

Hey looking great so far! The plants look good. Don't listen to Carltonus. ;)

Wonders should be the most eyecandied objects in the game. I don't think this one is overkill. 

I would use a different statue on the side, instead of reusing the Roman ones. I think the game needs a lot more statuary in general.
