Hello, all! I just got done with a painful painting out session and thought that what I did can be extremely useful for creating custom eras or new religions for Civ4. If anyone has noticed this by now, all shrine movies and era popups use the exact same background. I foolishly thought that painting it out would take no time at all and be relatively simple. So, most of it looks fairly decent, but after 15 hours or so, the quality went slightly downhill. However, it still should be very useable and save anyone wanting to do these A LOT OF TIME (if they can do this). So, the center is what I think is the ugliest, but then again, I'm not very good at making decisions in blank space about what should happen there, so the center is probably the worst part (it's always covered up anyways. That's what made it so hard, and take most of the time). However, even that shouldn't be too bad. I'm looking forward to impressions about how you guys think it looks. If you end up using it, the files that this background is used in are found in assets/art/Movies/era and assets/art/Movies/religion. In each subfolder in the religion folder, it will be the one that looks similar to this: Shrine_Bud_Dwg_512.dds (that's for Buddism) Here's a picture: Here's the file: Blank.zip (120 KB) NOTE: This is not meant to be added directly into the game. Do not ask for directions on how to install this mod. It's just a template for modders to work off of. Happy modding! EDIT: BAGH! I just feel like screaming my head off as I was able to actually play Civ4 today. When starting the game I found a MUCH easier picture to paint out. I feel so disgusted and now feel like I should have waited to have the game running BEFORE doing this. Oh well, I guess. Maybe at some later date I'll paint this one out. It shouldn't take more than an hour or two. Firaxis JUST had to ruin my thunder here, as I thought that they had it covered heavily all the time.
