    All right folks, this pack contains the buildings from Empire Earth 2 expansion pack Art of Supremacy. The major addition of the pack were the African civs, and therefore most buildings are African-themed. Some are quite nice, but overall in my opinion most buildings are a bit too high-poly for Civ 4. Still, I'm providing most of the buildings that I could find in AoS resources.

    Spoiler :


    As far as units are concerned, there were literally only a couple of mechanical units that would be even remotely interesting to Civ community, and both of those (T-90 and Rafale) are already available on CFC, so I didn't include them.

    All textures are left as they originally were. Most of them are 512x512, which is IMO too large for Civ 4, but everyone can shrink them to their desired size. Even though many models contain several meshes, only a few can be seamlessly split into pieces; most of the time you'll get missing faces/floating parts if you do that. Anyway, if you're familiar with buildings from vanilla EE2, you already know reasonably well what to expect.

    This is really a great addition. Thankyou so much for taking the time to get this converted Walter.

    I really didn't know about the Egyptian buildings in that expansion either. Uniqueness when it comes to African building flavor has been greatly helped by this undertaking.

    Well, as with most other EE2 buildings, many of them are a bit too high-poly to be comfortably used in Civ4, at least in big mods. I know we won't be using more than a couple in RI, since as a big mod, we need to be very mindful of being as lean as we can. Out of all the stuff there only houses and some temples are low-poly enough for me to consider using them myself - and most likely after I cut some pieces away from the model. But of course smaller mods can benefit from all these...

    I wonder if the more advanced looking African buildings are based on something like Ethiopia, or if they are at attempt at a "What if" medieval African look, or something else?
