    They do have a superficial similarity in shape, but I tested it in-game and it looks pretty different, so I don't think it should be an issue.

    Nice!... and how did you get the culture to change?\

    And I know it's cultures.artdef, but I found editing the game one to be very confusing...

    You definitely don't want to muck around in the game's Cultures.artdef...too much going on. This is all you really need:
    Code:
    <AssetObjects:ArtDefSet>
        <m_Version>
            <major>1</major>
            <minor>0</minor>
            <build>0</build>
            <revision>0</revision>
        </m_Version>

    In this case, I've defined 3 different building sets: AncientEarth (early-game look), Mediterranean (mid-game look), ModernGlass (late-game look). Then, I define 1 unit set: Mediterranean. Since all of my city-states in this pack are using the same cultures, I don't need to use any more. But you can easily define different looks for multiple city-states by simply adding new Elements under each Collection.

    :thumbsup:

    There's a few people on board but I'm not quite ready to broadcast who as they've got some other commitments and I don't want them to feel pressured.
