#1 Updated by David Fernandez (bard) about 1 year ago

I made this version that looks like a normal building, instead of a wonder:

David, I guess your work is a derivative of one of these? (The licence for either looks OK.)

I have found these public domain images of the Potala palace that I think could be used for the gfx of this building:

Yes, it's derivative of the first one, by SONORAMA (Public domain):

Exactly one year ago I tried to add the missing border to the ecclesial palace (64x48). "Missing" as in "everything else in data/wonders has a border". Just in case attached here, if it's not yet done. I've also created a 36x20 version suited for the small wonders on buildings.png, just in case also attached. I never got around to actually insert it in buildings.png and add it in buildings.spec, if that's not yet done holler, I could do it.

The workflow was something like "convert PD Jpeg to PNG", "crop 239x149 PNG to 216x120 and 200x150", "scale 216x120 down to 36x20 with image worsener" (216=6*36, 120=6*20), "scale 200x150 down to 64x48 with image worsener" (200=3.125*64, 150=3.125*48), and "replace border pixels" for the usual "big wonder" border.

I did look around to see if I could find a Blender or other 3D model of the Potala palace, but didn't find anything free.

Since the only ruleset that uses this currently uses it as a small wonder like Palace (which is styled like a building, not a great wonder), I haven't included a wonder-flavoured graphic.

Commit procedure:
  • Apply attached diff
  • Copy David's ecclesiastical_palace.png to data/buildings/ecclesiastical_palace.png
  • Copy my buildings.png data/misc/buildings.png (this incorporates frank's Potala_36x20.png)
  • Copy to new directory: data/graphics/buildings/Tibet_Potala_Palace.JPG

(I did also look over the files that were formerly attached to gna patch #7187 when deciding which ones to take.)
