This past week we've mostly worked on the Egyptians (which is going to be the first civilisation to get included in the mod) . As you can see, most of the Egyptian buildings still have Persian models as placeholders, but progress is coming along steadily. The Egyptians are 'playable' in the latest git version. That is to say: if you start a game playing as Egyptians, you shouldn't get any serious errors.
Only a few models have been done at the moment, but having done these, we are confident that the rest will get done just fine.
On the "Egyptians Demo" map (see picture), you'll find all of the models/entities we have made for the Egyptians.
I, Idanwin, have spent the last week making models and making all necessary .xml files.
Lion has textured all of my models at an incredible speed (really, right after posting a model I just had to reload the page to see the beautiful textures he made).
Atenmeses is really busy at the time, but he took the time to help us out anyway.
And Zaphzaph has worked on the design documents and is learning to model so that we can get more work done!
I would like to thank all of you :-)

For the 3rd year running the time has come to kick off Mod Appreciation Week 2017 and talk about our favorite mods. To thank those from our community who participate in spreading the love and awareness, we have partnered up with some friends of Mod DB and have a bunch of Steam keys to giveaway:
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2017
After you have linked to a mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your post. At the end of the week we shall be picking a few members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of the above games.
