[BtS] Ethnic Artstyles - vs. 1.09 2016-10-05

Ethnic Artstyles
Beyond the Sword 3.13 - mod version 1.09

  • This mod is made to make the civilizations more culturally diverse with the available art made by freelance modders and unused art by Firaxis.
  • Basically, citysets of the different artstyle groups have been changed/altered until the Modern Era, where ever art was available for it. In some cases you'll still see the normal ingame cityset buildings, which means I haven't found art for those spots or I intended it to remain there. Also, for some units and buildings new .dds files are included which I felt made them look better without altering the basic model of it.
  • Besides citystyles, new palaces have been included for the different artstyles. This part is not finished yet since there's no art available for some artstyles/era's. 4 buildings (Granary, Forge, Aquaduct and Colosseum) switch to a new model from the industrial/modern era onwards. Couldn't let it work for an industrial airport at this stage.
  • Included are Sepamu92's fishingboat modcomponent, the Ethnically Diverse Unit mod from a team chaired by White Rabbit, and worker units by Chugginator.
  • Changes were made on the shipscales which come with the EDU-mod. In general the late-era ships have been made smaller so they fit in a tile again. ;)
  • The new artstyles in this mod are AFRICAN, EGYPTIAN, INDIAN, MEDITERRANEAN, VIKING, SOUTH-EAST ASIAN and NATIVE AMERICAN. Don't expect truly different citystyles in all cases tho, quite a number of them are hybrids, especially the Indian -and Khmer civ.
Ensure that ModularLoading is enabled in your civ4config file. It should be "1" instead of "0".
Simply unzip the download to your Beyond the Sword/mods folder, check if there are NO double folders of "Ethnic Artstyles" (Beyond the Sword/mods/Ethnic Artstyles/Ethnic Artstyles), and start the game as usual for loading up a mod.
