    This thread is currently dead - it might be revived at some point, but as of right now, I have too much on my plate with my custom civs and Natural Disasters project.

    DJSHenninger had made a similar thread, which you can check out here.

    Not a conversion request, but do you know if it's possible to make buildings appear in the cities on the map? That would be brilliantly and incredibly awesome.

    I don't think so unfortunately, but I'm not completely sure. I seem to remember having read somewhere that it's not possible to mod city graphics (not even changing the textures).

    Yeah, that was what I thought.:( Ah well.

    I'm curious; when you convert an improvement, do you have to rig the meshes to any bones?

    I haven't had to yet. Admittedly, I've just been using a template from one of the tutorials, which incorporates a basic bone I link things like the pillaged effect to, and being able to make more complex armatures would be nice for adding more effects to models. But I've never had to rig any meshes, myself.

    Reminds me that I've got to finish a couple of the fantasy model requests I've had... <.<;;

    This is a great initiative, I always felt the need to change my plans for a civ with a UI because of a lack of custom graphics.

    Since there's no request yet, could you perhaps convert the 'Kastell' model on this website? It would be used for a revision of my Macedonia mod, turning the Tvrdina into an improvement to make things more interesting. If the model is too complex or doesn't quite work, that's okay.

    And if you somehow don't get other requests and feel like doing more .. a conversion of this Stecak model would be appreciated, although it's not a priority. My Bosnia mod is not used a lot anyway.

    Same as bouncymischa. Provably using the same template.

    I'll take a look at it once I'm at my workstation.

    Isn't used a lot?!! Rarely play a Europe map without it.. ;) I've actually already messed around with the Stecak model a while ago when I was trying to figure out how Blender was working. Never finished it though, but this'll be an excuse to getting it done.

    Sure thing - I was planning to, but it's probably a good idea to mention it in the OP. Thanks for the reminder.

    I used the holy site pillage improvement as a template for all my tile imps. It requires rigging to one bone

    Hey, if you get well going, here are a few religious buildings I'd like to see converted.
    Take your time, not in a hurry :)

    The mosque from here:

    And this:

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm trying to add new art for buildings to show up in a city, hope this will succeed:

    I'll add them to the list ;) it might take some time as everything here is on standby until I've gotten my Corsica mod updated, which involves making a re-skin and conversion of a civ4 model for their musketman UU. And something in that process has gone terribly wrong.. Might have to request Civitar for some help :)

    If you can find it, let me know and I'll remove it from my to-do list. :D

    Like wonders? I looked into it and also looked at the coliseum. This is one I want to figure out too.
