    Tomorrow, I'll post what you can use that is in Rise of Mankind. (some units, buildings and buttons)

    If you download RoM yourself, you can copy some art files yourself.

    @ Black Whole

    Do you have a program you can see .dds files with? If so, I can send you some button files and you can pick the buttons yourself.

    I have already checked Rise of Mankind several times, yet I didn't looked through all the buildings. Another problem is that zapara merged dds buttons into an atlas, which makes it more difficult to use buttons. But if you found something that could be used, just tell me.

    I have ddsviewer, so that would be no probem ;).

    The button works, yet the background isn't yellow. Instead it is white.

    I can make individual buttons of those in the atlas. (they are only 17 kb instead of the normal 5 kb each)

    Pack 1: http://rapidshare.com/files/395947609/RFCA-pack1.zip.html

    Buttons for Diplomacy, Examinations, Exploration, Military Tradition (3 versions incl. Bushido), Organized Religion (2 ver.), Izumo Shrine - converted from Civ3
    Other buttons: Pilgrimage(from Civ3 by Ukas), Gardening & Mint (FFH), Cartography and Barter (RoM) and other stuff I've made from googled images.
    Ghaznavid flag & icon - green is optimal but I included a blue version as well
    Ghorid flag & icon - I can't find any info on Delhi Sultanate's flag, but it was founded by Ghorids; this design is based on the one in Broken Crescent
    Majapahit flag & icon
    Missing leader buttons for Yu, Rajendra and Vinayaditya
    Qutb Minar building & icon, it's just recolor/resized minaret though but I use it until I can find something better
    Weaver building & icon from Colonization
    Vijay Stambha - you're using it as Trade Guild I think? though it's a great wonder on its own, from EE2/Total Realism mod
    3 Caravan Houses from Total Realism + my icon

    ---

    90% units you need are in the DB or Varietas Delectat or Diversica, matter of going through the folders and choosing them, taking future art styles into consideration

    These are great! :goodjob: I already included most of it. Thanks! Are there more such buildings like the Vijay Stambha in Total Realism mod or EE2? I think that some wonders can still be added. I didn't know that thw button for the trade guild was the VijayStambha, I just used it form cybrxkhan's Chola civ. I think, that it would be a good wonder/national wonder.

    About the units: I know there is much around, I also add some of them now and then, but I won't avoid a too big file size that early. Otherwise, I'll use those from the database. I only think that UUs and standard units should be done for now.

    @merijn_v1:
    I'll use them gladly! Shall I tell you which buttons or do you do all?

    TR has some new hi-res versions of old wonders like Taj Mahal and a few more, I'll go through them later today and see if there's something Asian that you don't have.

    Sure, and I didn't mean to include VD/Diversica, that wouldn't work anyway, but those are good collections of units that are a bit easier to browse and look for UU art (and they have some units that are not in the db too).

    If you ever do ethnic art styles, I think 4-6 sets (Asian(or Japan/China) / East Asia(Khmer/Vietnam) / India / Mongol and possibly Turkish) would cover all civs on the map, so that won't take much space/memory really.

    Well, there's tons of stuff in TR: School of Confucius, University of Sankore, Porcelain Tower, Pha That Luang, Bamiyan Buddha Statues, Art of War, Kamakha Temple, Seated Buddha Statue (Golden), Temple of Heaven, Terracotta Army, National Folk Museum & Feng Shui Academy (all-purpose Asian buildings), Sento Bath, Elephant Stable, Vedic Temple, Choson Temple + a lot of units not found anywhere else. Those buildings that you already know have their missing icons and are retextured e.g. Kamakha and Porcelain Tower are no longer glowing strangely. I guess it would be best if you just downloaded TR but if you need help with extracting stuff let me know.

    Done!
    Works perfectly. Flag of Tocharistan (the 'A' from their alphabet), even made one for Chalukya. It's the kind of turban their leaderhead has on. Just an idea, though. Don't need to take it.

    Flags are good as they are, yet their buttons are missing... If you have time could you do them?

    So here is what I could use. I'll give the coordinates how they are defined in the XML.

    rom_atlas.dds ([4, 5], [6, 6])
    rom_techtree_atlas.dds ([8, 5])
    rom_civic_atlas.dds ([2, 11], [3, 11], [1, 8])
    rom_building_atlas.dds ([2, 2], [3, 7], [2, 7], [6, 9])

    Thanks in advance!

    I've researched and found some useful stuff.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Historic_flag_of_Burma-Myanmar.svg

    It's from about 1300 AD until 1500 AD. If you think about changing their colors: yellow would be fine, because there are no nearby civs who have it, and green as secondary color.

    We could use him as Abaoji, as you already said that you don't like Jimmu in your mod:p...But i havn't ask for methyl orange's allowance yet.
    We could make the current Sapadbizes the LH of Nanzhao, because he looks chinese, and the Yuezhi were indo-europeans (some mummies are even blue-eyed and blonde). There are tons of persian or greek looking LHs, i will send you some proposals if you like the idea.

    The burma flag looks good, I'll use it, thanks! Could you add a button of it?

    Concerning the Jimmu leaderhead, I want to use him as emperor Kammu as an early leader for Japan, when I'll add more of them. But the idea of Sapadbizes seems alright. We just need to avoid Greek helmets, but I'll see what I can find.
