I definitely agree with Chompster here, though I think that the model needs to blend in with the terrain more. Right now it feels a bit out of place.

lol was thinking the exact same thing, but i guess it's just to showcase the model. when actually being used in game i'm sure it'll be surrounded by things to make it blend in

That was the point of the building to begin with. To remind the Shahs wife of her lush mountain home in the middle of the desert.

Oh, maybe I should have mentioned that I didn't talk about the model as a whole, but more specifically the the "border" (can't find the right word...) around the base of the structure.
I think it should be more sand-ish, as it is bordered by sand.

It looks even better now (some small edits) and especially when the water is animated :) So yeah, great work from everyone who made this happen, we are fortunate to have skilled people working on 0 A.D. :)

The white tree on top, inspiration from Minas Tirith? Anyway really gorgeous but as Airborne says it would really benefit from some terrain variation around it.
