The civ themes of the new South Asian civs are kinda off according to some Indian AOE2 players. I know creating civ themes takes a lot of time and changing them probably won’t happen, but it would be really nice if you would consider it.
The Dravidian theme has Punjabi tune in the middle of it. Many have pointed this out.
While the Bengali theme is Shehnaai played in marriage functions.
Gurjara theme is just kind of mute with no tune to it.
No local instrument used in playing the musics.
Where is the iconic Nadaswaram in Dravidian theme? Where is the Ektara/Dotara in Bengali Theme?
The themes just sound random, not related to the civs at all.
I’m glad they worked on unique castles. But in the future it would also be cool to split the architecture. The current architectural set is ideal for Gurjara and Hindustani. But for a peninsular coastal civ like Dravidians, thatched and slanted roofs for feudal age and tiled/slanted roofs for the later ages. This architectural type was necessary for the monsoons. Bengal and the Dravidian states face the monsoons so that design might need to be kept in mind. As for monasteries, the Meenakshi Amman model is already available. Though a wonder, a miniature version would suit the Dravidians. The current monastery style is something that belongs to the Kalinga civ that doesnt exist in the game. Though Bengalis were predominantly Buddhist and Muslim in this time period, the Utkala region did have this temple style so I guess it would suit them. For the Gurjaras and Hindustanis a miniature version of the current Gurjara wonder would be ideal as a monastery.
