The talented people at Paradox South just delivered the last of the 3D fort models that will represent fort buildings in the 1.12 patch, so I thought I'd make a post and show them off. The size of the forts in the screenshot may not accurately reflect their actual size when playing the game.



There are 4 levels of forts (Castle, Star Fort, Bastion, Fortress), each with its own model. The first level has unique graphics for the Muslim, Indian, African, Asian, North American & South American graphical cultures, while the later levels are standardized across the graphics styles but have sandstone and greystone variants so that they'll still fit into the different types of cities.

These models will all be included free with the 1.12 patch, and in my opinion they look pretty damn awesome. :)

What about colonizers castles? Wouldn't "palisade castle" be more appropriate for them than actual castle?

Depends on their graphical culture, most of them are Asian or Muslim graphical culture.

I see, actually yes the muslim one, but maybe the palisade could be interesting for some situations.

I like them. A bit bizarre though: It will be strange to see the exact same fortress built everywhere...
