    Yeah. I have the initial graphic done. I've been occupied with the Gallic Wars mod over the last week but I won't keep you waiting much longer.
    I'll have a look at your most recent list then and see if there's anything else I might be able for.

    I've finished all the LH picture for the victory screens now. Well, I've finished them to the degree I'm ever likely to finish them. :)

    Updated building graphics request list:

    Small Wonder: Yajaw Maan
    This is an effigy of the god K'awiil, mounted on some sort of pole so-that it can be carried along on campaigns. Pedica icons, city icon, and wondersplash needed.

    Improvements - need pedia pics and city icons:
    Altar (city icon done, but could stand replacement or improvement)
    Harbour (a primitive harbour - gotta get rid of those cranes!)
    Putun Emporium (sea-side warehouses)
    Zoomorph (a big slab of stone crudely shaped into an animal or animal head, covered with inscriptions and carvings)

    Trai is (allegedly :p) working on the zoomorph. :)

    Hey, Buddy! Don't say I never give you presents!
    Seriously, though - I hope it's ok. I used the picture you posted a while back but, at 128x128 there's only so much you can do with a block of stone!

    I nicked an ancient harbour graphic from Plot's Rood & Dragon that'll do if nobody can be arsed to make a dedicated one, and made a mutilated version of it to serve as the Putun Emporium. What remains of my request list is then:

    Further, I realize I could use a better Barracks gfx than the vanilla ancient one, and I still need a tech icon for Total War.

    I'm a bit stumped on these ones! i don't suppose you have any source material for Yajaw Maan?
    I actually did start work on a barracks a while back but not with any result to my satisfaction.

    Maybe I ought change that one to something else, since finding info on it is hard.

    FWIW, here's a sculpture of Kawiil, the god the Yajaw Maan was a representation of:



    Here's a short description hinting why I want the thing in:
    *****​

    Finally, a picture of a Maya altar:


    This is the most famous of them all, Altar Q from Copán, depicting the sixteen Copanec rulers from Yax K'uk' Mo' (2nd from the left on the front side) to Yax Pasaj Chaan Yoaat (3rd from the left).

    Ironically, in all probability, these structures weren't used in away we'd think of as "altars" - they seem to've been platforms for public speechifying and similar ceremonies.

    Addition to gfx requests: I need a city screen icon for the Glyphic Staircase. :)

    In a transparent attempt at making it look like I'm not leaving all actual work to Trai, I've put in a k'atun glyph as the city icon for the Glyphic Staircase - making a convincing staircase at that scale is very hard, and the glyph, indicating a period of somewhat less than twenty years, is appropriate enough for a monument recounting dynastic history - and my "spear and fire" tech icon (see below) for the Total War tech. It's not exactly what I originally wanted, but I think it's atmospheric.


    Download

    Once the last few gfx pieces drop in, I plan to release a final beta, fixing whatever bugs people discover, and then finalize the scenario. :)

    The remaining thing, once Trai is done with the Yajaw Maan, would be the Altar ('pedia pics and preferably also improved city screen icon).

    @Trai: Forgot I asked you about the Aztec temple thing. :blush: Well, I'll see if I use that or the spear-and-fire thing.

    The first site has already been ransacked for some graphics - in particular, you may recognize ol' Pakal's head as the wonderspash for Kaloomte'lel, and the masque of death and rebirth as part of the diplo interface. :)

    I've looked thru the later page, but didn't find anything that seemed useful.

    Sorry I didn't manage to upload last night. I'll see to it tonight at some stage. The Ajaw Maan still has me a little stumped but bear with me. I'll keep experimenting.
