This is a modified texture file for Children of the Nile that will add a splash of color to your plane-Jane shrines, temple cult temple and priest homes that are set to Tend Gods.
There is research showing that ancient Egyptian buildings were brightly painted and covered in may paintings. Traces of this paint has been found on the ruins of many ancient Egyptian buildings.
I had watched a program on ancient Egypt about six months before CotN was released where discussed this architectural painting in bright colors. The show provided a 3D virtual mock up of an Egyptian temple painted in bright red over the majority of its surfaces.
This file attempts to recreate the temple that I saw in that program. I think it turned out very nicely. I hope you enjoy it.
Make a backup of your Temple1.dds file first. Then extract the Temple1.dds file from the zipfile to your
C:\Program Files\Tilted Mill\Children of the Nile\data\Graphics\buildings\textures folder.

If you have your game running when you do this you will have to quit to the desktop and restart to load the new texture into the game.
