    Here is a quick fix to the bug that the computer civs will not build the Town Square. I took 1 influence from Gallows (leaving 1 Infl), and +5% gold from Fair (leaving 5%), and gave these values to Town Square. It is tested and the AI will now build Town Square. I did not change costs for the buildings. They may need to be adjusted to allow for the changed modifiers... I'll leave that to someone who knows better.

    Unzip and place the file in Assets...Buildings. The original file will be overwritten.

    I tried your graphics fix... got an error in loading, and the game shut down during loading.

    One concern is that the artdefines file included seems to be a lot smaller than the one it replaces... 13 kb replacing an 83 kb file... I'd have thought it would increase in size rather than shrink.

    The error message on loading is unreadable for me as my screens load too fast, and the popup is covered with the load screen... can't help you with specifics of the error, therefore.

    Tried your new graphics package... seems to be working ok. Never looked at the old graphics all that closely, so seeing exactly what has changed is another matter. looked at the pedia entries and they graphics as viewed there seem ok.

    I really like that you replaced the warrior graphic for militia... that really irritated me. I'd like to see Warrior itself changed... some half-naked guy walking around with a club, whose purpose is to guard a city, doesn't seem very medieval to me. At least Feoderati should change to some sort of late Roman looking unit.

    Here are some more units whose graphics I 'improved'. I only used graphics found on the forum, and 2 from Warlords and BTS.
    Units changed:
    Archer, Composite Archer, Cannon, Mamluke Cavalry, Genoese Crossbowman, Foot Knight, Fyrdman, Light Cavalry, Jannisary, Goten Huskarl, Foederati, Nakharar, and Boila Spearman. Art taken from danrell, woodelf, aranor, and assorted others.
    This is uploaded in three parts because of the size.

    Please enjoy and tell me if anything is missing or wrong.

    I took a look at the changes, but didn't play any of the game.

    Initially, they look pretty good. I was a little hesitant about replacing foot knight with an islamic type, but it's actually not too bad.

    Only one thing not working... somethings wrong with the Fyrdman. Just red dots on map, and the pedia just shows the button.

    One other thing... I really don't like the current warrior. Could we get something more medieval?... even the old swordsman would be better.

    All in all, though, looks good. Good work.

    Okay, the fyrdman must not be working because it is a BTS unit (European Spearman). Ill replace it with normal spearman, and keep looking. BTW, has anyone besides Craig tried my unit changes?
    Im probaly not going to change the warrior until i get a 'heavy' spearman to replace the existing one.

    I think Influential should be given double speed for Town Squares.
