Is Babylonian style Babylonian style? Or maybe...

Mesopotamian?

This isn't new thing! I found it inside interfac.drs and graphics.drs

Never Babylonian! This is an mistake (or joke?) by Age of Empires 1 Wiki.



So you already know it.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

I like your curiosity
Where is that in the dll?

Tilesets:
0 - Egypt, Assyrian, Sumerian
1 - Greek, Minoan, Phoenecian
2 - Babylonian, Hittite, Persian
3 - Gaia, Shang, Yamato, Choson
4 - Roman, Carthage, Palmyra, Macedonia

I generally call them
0 - Egyptian
1 - Greek or Aegean (They are all hellenistic after all)
2 - Babylonian
3 - Asiatic
4 - Roman (Because it's RoR, and obviously modeled after Rome)

It seems that way with all of them-- Ensemble chose the most prolific/well known civs to make tilesets, then just assigned the rest to one of the existing tilesets. That way they could have 12 civs for the artistic price of 4.

That said, I'm not sure which civ the Asiatic tileset was inspired by.

Aren't Assyria and Sumeria also Mesopotamian? That might be another reason people don't use that name.

Hmm, interesting.

Also I wondered, why Assyrians and Sumerians uses Egyptian architecture, if real world speaks differently.

Chab, you saw this in AGE3.


Anyway, I follow the graphics.drs
