    It must be yours then. I overwrote any files underneath it.

    In other news, 't seems like there's a new cityset to include: Cham's Southeast-asian cityset. Expect an update somewhere next week. :D

    Not a problem.

    I clicked the link in your signature and as far as I see, it's the full version and not the patch. Do you have just the patch somewhere to download?

    Thanks,

    Again, you're right. Must have mislinked it in my upload space.
    At least that's the full version without SDK.

    Well, since there's a new cityset outthere and I'm planning for the coming week to include it it's not much use to upload a separate patch again. Not to mention trying to remember which files I patched.

    If you download it now, it's the guaranteed version without any gameplay alteration on the AI or something.

    Great job with this mod! It really gives nice unique look to different civilizations. I combined it to my own mod too. :)

    Nice addition to the community. You might want to consider the Kislev cityart by Chamaedrys made for the Warhammermod for Russia maybe;)

    Thanks, and feel free to incorporate it.

    Thanks too. And I already considered this cityset, but found it too incompatible with the rest of the graphics. ;)
    The early Rus where in essence a viking tribe, and later on in their histor they followed up on the more traditional European style.

    Great job compiling this, GeoModder. All we need now is a set for India. :D

    I know this isn't BTS-ready yet, but do you think I could add this to the RFC mod without problems? RFC has one or two custom wonders and national embassies, so I'm hoping citysets are located separately.

    Compiling a believable set of buildings for India (in XML then) was quite hard, but its almost done for the CityLsystem file. It will be a blend of the ancient egyptian, the recent south-east asian -and the middle-east citysets from the Classical to the Industrial era.
    After that the most annoying part comes, putting them in the Improvements file so the cottages show the graphics too.

    I'm afraid citysets are defined in the same file as city facilities. You'll or have to put the custom buildings in my CityLsystem file, or overwrite all the cityset xml in your RFC CityLsystem with the xml I made.
    Haven't checked yet if in BtS the xml is defined in other ways then in Vanilla Civ or Warlords.

    Geo, In BtS, you 'assign' an LSystem in the Building file. I'm not quite sure how it affects Cities, but I think it's still in the LSystem file.

    I've noticed that in the new BtS vanilla game, many earlier units are already ethnically different.

    They do indeed, but they cut a lot of corners. I'm not sure if there are more artstyles in BtS...

    What surprised me when I was looking at the Civilization define file, is that Middle East and South American are included as the style. The same can be said when observing the CityLSystem file. I believe they were going to implement more styles, but slacked.

    With a small bit of delay I'm afraid. Yesterday I was too tired to work on the Indian cottages. :blush:
    Today it's a good day to mod. :D

    Nice! I might have the units done soon. Got a load of work to do on the Unit Art files, though.
