    Wip Mayan Complex in 3D

    Thought I would experiment on creating a mayan complex in 3D, in a 3/4 view rather than top-down. The beauty of 3D is difficult to see in a top-down, though the angle is still pretty steep, rather than true 3/4 view.

    Anyway, the first element of my mayan experiment - a ziggurat. I want to create several ziggurats and other temple structures, a ball court, some surrounding walls, appropriate to a mayan complex, as well as some homes.

    I've been to Cancun seen some smaller mayan ruins there, as well as Chichinitza and another ziggurat south of Cancun, about 5 years ago. As well as seen ruins of a mayan home - foundation only, but understand above the stone foundation was basically a wooden hut with thatched roof. I'll also be creating some palms and other plant life, and perhaps even a "cenote" or waterfilled sinkhole, as mayan rivers are subterrainean only with sinkholes exposing access for drinking water and sacrefices.

    At this point, I'm not sure whether just to create a 3/4 view map or map objects in 3/4 view, so you can "assemble" a Mayan complex yourself in your preferred program with pieces...

    PS: I now think I should have posted this thread in the city/town WIP forum, rather than the building/structure WIP, CL's please move this...
