A request to the devs: Please switch the Persians to the Central Asian architecture before release of their rework

If I can dig up my sketches, a pencil, and a hard surface to draw on, I should be able to provide rough sketches that the devs can work from. I should have time in the future.

Wouldn’t it be Hindustanis? Ghaznavids are more Hindustanis than Persians in the game imo.

Yeah. That was me. Posting 16 weeks in a row.

Personally I think it looks like the Shapur Khast Castle in Iran. Which is why I think it would be a good fit for Persians.

When will this bug be fixed?

It’s been there since the game release and it has never got a fix even though they said they are tracking.

God just give it to us lmao. They could set the DLC BS straight if they give me some new architecture and Persian Rework Rework.

We turned this thread into a meme posting page. But what else we could do? Just repeating ourselves.

Given how easily the devs moved Spanish and Byzantines to the Mediterranean set, I’m surprised they didn’t move the Persians as well, especially with all the requests for it.
I don’t think there was any push to move Spanish to the Mediterranean set (if there was, I wasn’t around to see it).

Lets not forget they moved out the byzantines from the middle eastern set.

I literally included that in my comment

Or do you mean this part?

And they changed the Vietnamese architecture too. But there’s one thing all of those switches have in common: they didn’t occur until a new version of the game. There’s no precedent for changing the architecture of a civ mid-version. Not saying it shouldn’t happen (it definitely should), but I’m not sure it’s likely.

Low effort, I know – but in my defence, giving Persians central Asian architecture would also be low effort.

Agreed. I managed to reskin 4 entire civs in a total of maybe 45 minutes. The devs could do this in 10, tops. They choose not to for some reason, and IMO it’s one of the more egregious issues with the game sinply because it has such an easy fix.

I was gonna message you about a data mod giving the Bohemians, Persians, and Hindustanis different architecture. I think I still will.
