    I'm doing a revised version of my African scenario, and it looks like I'm going to need a pile of new improvements and Wonders for it. Naturally I didn't think of downloading Bryce when it was free, but I see lots of other people did - so I'm asking for help! If anyone would like to try to make civ-style versions of these buildings, I would be very grateful. You can find more pictures of most of them online - these images are just tasters.

    Thanks in advance for any interest!

    A zaouia (this site has pictures, but they're Flash so I can't reproduce them here).

    The zaouia of Sidi Sahbi:



    The Mosque of Sidi Mahrez:



    The Citadel of Cairo:



    The Saadian Tombs:



    The Great Mosque of Kairouan:



    The Mausoleum of al-Shafi:



    The Mosque of al-Aqmar:

    Some of these are quite similar to some of the older Muslim religious buildings I did. Check civ3files to see them for now. I will move them back online here in a few weeks.

    Also, these types of buildings are very easy to do in Bryce. Do you have it? I might have time later in the month to help out if someone else hasn't done so already.

    No, I foolishly didn't download Bryce when it was available. If you were to get a chance to knock some of these together at some point, I would be most grateful...

    Typical orc...;)

    I would like to see some of those buildings done, too.

    I've been thinking of doing a mosque building sometime, but one little problem is that I don't have the appropriate textures... :)

    In Bryce, you can use any of the marble textures, but add a bump map such as sand.
    Or use a photo from a Mosque to get colors from.

    Very nice buildings ... there aren't many grand-looking islamic buildings around the forum. Most are just generic.

    So - seconded.
