    'Should'? "Must" is a better word for it. :)

    Boule is the greek word for parliament. I thought that the first classicistical one was the athenian boule ;)

    Indeed, it does like Voule/Vouli/Voole.
    This is a recently build building(in comparison to say the Parthenon, that is).
    Aion, you have a most impressive collection of Greek style and eras buildings.
    I'm sure I missed dloading the cycladic ones.

    Ah, I see. You're correct, it is supposed to be the Greek parliament indeed. I just thought at first that you meant that French ball game boule or pétanque :lol:

    Thank you :) The reason that you missed them might be that I haven't finished them yet :p They're work in progress, but you can find a link to the preview thread in my sig.

    Yeah, found it. :)
    These certainly look cycladic, which is one part of our architecture I love the most. You should visit Athens during the Olympics though(it was at best shape then. The garbage piles are mostly due to the strikes we keep having and people not accepting the disposal areas near their place. Plus that we're not re-cycling conscious yet.).

    I suggest visiting Santorini next which is the best island in the Aegean IMO. For a different taste of Greece(which is different depending which place you'll go).
    Not all of us want the situation to be like this but can't force the bulky majority.

    Well, I've decided to contribute. Only one or two of these I've made myself, but I edited the rest to make my cities. Everything else is someone else's creation. You see, I copy pics of buildings or cities or other graphics into one large, white, bmp image. Then I cut'n'paste pieces from those cities, zoom in and edit the surrounding area pixel by pixel. Then I paste them together, kind of like how you buy lego sets and take them apart to make something else. So here are some of my faves (there will be more later):

    For those of you who want to add some greenery to their cities, here's a pack of 8 trees that I converted from AoE II. It contains 3 palm trees, 3 deciduous trees and 2 conifers. The attached Zip file contains both a BMP version of the trees with magenta BG for those who use Gimp and other freeware progs, as well as a .PSD Photoshop file for those who have Adobe Photoshop or PSP (PSP can open and save adobe photoshop files). The .psd format has a null background around the trees, which means that all you have to do is use the ol' box selection tool and copy and paste the tree you want.... no messing around with bg or anything.

    Preview and zip file:
