First, thanks the FtG team for all their work and more specifically the 'buildings in a province change according to its culture' feature. This is the specifical feature this mini-mod will attempt to use, by introducing building sets to the most important cultures.
After a few quick tests, the feature work perfectly. The culture/cities system is very customizable and every culture on the planet can have its specifical set of buildings if we want.
This is what the new engine allow:
Here is Paris, the capital of France. Paris is a French-cultured city so its buildings are in the French style.
This is Strassburg, the provincial capital of Alsace. Being of German culture, the city shows German influance in its architecture instead of French ones, despite being part of France.
This is Brest, in Bretagne. Since Bretagne is of Celtic culture, and no specifical building set has been given to this culture (yet), it simply use the 'default' building set.
...Note that the buildings will be properly resized and adjusted within the province, its very messy right now.
When all will be adjusted I will release all the new building sets to the public. However, since it use graphics from the old (but excellent!) game Cossack, it is not to become an integral part of FtG. I intend to build this mostly for mods that are interested in this, so anybody wanting to integrate it into its own mod is free to do so.
Right now the following cultures can get their own sets:
Iberian (shares with Basque)
Scandinavian (shares with Ugric)
German (shares with Baltic and Swiss)
Polish (shares with Lithuanian)
Italian (shares with Maltese)
Hungarian (shares with Slovak and Czech)
Portuguese (non-vanilla culture)
Danish (non-vanilla culture, shares with Norwegian)
Austrian/South German (non-vanilla culture)
The following sets may be build in the future:

I'm launching this with my very limited skills (I'm far from being an artist), ressources (Cossack, dunno where the CD is), and tools (MS Paint for the glory!). If anybody have the ambition to start something similar with new graphic sources I'd be happy to help him.
