@Yekaterina

Is there anything further I could help with?

If you can come up with some names for Illyrian, Dacian, Thracian and Odrysian AI that will help a lot. Also the Judeans need some AI names. 

Even better if you can help me edit the xml files for actors to create 'new' buildings for some of the balkan civs. You don't have to use blender; just attack some Greek/Roman skin onto celtic buildings mesh (.dae files) for now. We will get better models when the artists have time to make some but for now we create our structures by mix and matching props ;)

Duileoga proposed them:

Quote

Héroes ;(3)
(Reclutados en ;" ")
1." Teres I ";-------------------------------------(Τήρης )
2." Sitalces";-------------------------------------(Σιτάλκης)
3." Kotys I ";-------------------------------------(Κότυς)

I agree on those three, but I would consider Seuthes III as well. Maybe instead of Sitalces.

Over there I posted a list of historically important personalities being entirely or partly of Thracian ancestry. Bolding below is from me to indicate which to probaby select/ further discuss. The others seem to have some connection with Thrace but since we search for names for kings and heroes that might not really qulify for these.

 

Orpheus is told to be of Thracian origin, but on the other hand a mythological figure. Do we (in general) exclude or include such?

Furthermore, I am not sure about the famous Spartacus. Appian says he was "a Thracian by birth, who had once served as a soldier with the Romans, but had since been a prisoner and sold for a gladiator".[6] Do you think he should be selected as a Thracian hero?

Sitalces was, according to Wikipedia, king of the Odrysian state. If we want to differentiate this from Thracians, then we should save this figure for later use?

If somebody else with better historic background would like to share her/his thoughts, please let me know. Thank you so much. :)

Currently we have Thracians, Illyrians, Dacians. Should we get Odrysians as well?

In my opinion, this is a terrible idea. First, because most of our evidences, archaeologically and historically, are related to the Odrysians. Second, because this is incoherent, we don't do the same for other cultures. Else, why not dividing Getae and Dacians? The same for Illyrians with the Autariatae, Dalmatiae, Dardani, Ardiaei etc.

So what do you suggest?

Just one big Odrysian civ?

Yes, that makes things much easier. BTW, the reason why I only mentioned Sitalces (of Odrysian origin) was that he was mentioned in another post referring to the Thracian. I just wanted to ask how to proceed with him, not meaning that the others are not worth mentioning. As I said earlier, I am no historian at all but just got to it by sheer chance (or by being kindly asked, I shall say). ;) So if my posts in this regard were not well-grounded, please accept my apologies.

There are always gameplay problems with that. Not enough heroes is case 1.

Case 2- there are no wonders/marvels.

Unless they share them.

The third and rarest case is incomplete buildings and architecture.

Thracians

More photos - are they helpful at all? Or do you need rather sketches?

PS:

As @Genava55 rightfully wrote, some of this could be used as placeholder. I do not know how exactly you arts guys work. Do you use photos, sketches, text, etc. as inspiration to draw something? Because of lack of understanding, my quick links very likely do not meet your expectations.
