    I made this building to act as a "Philosopher's Stone" great wonder in my game. I didn't want a magic jewel just sitting next to my city, so I came up with the idea of putting it in a small shrine.

    The red jewel in the center, being held up by the three heavy chains, is meant to be the philosopher's stone. Or it can just be an object of worship if you are using the building as a shrine. ;)

    The large symbol on the floor is from the anime Fullmetal Alchemist. The plot of which deals heavily with the philosopher's stone.

    EDIT: Updated the zip to one with a slightly better jewel.

  2. Very nice! :goodjob: It's hard to tell from the screenshots, but did you apply a gloss map to that stone? It would look great if it had a bit of reflection on it. (Of course if it does then ignore my ramblings :D).

    Nice one. I'm sure I'll find a use for it somewhere. :)

    That was a good idea. It didn't make a very big difference in the game, but it looks slightly better now. I also added a small amount of transparency to it while I was messing around.

    I updated the download with the changes.
