    Default How the city of Rome looked in 320 C.E.

    I really like this project, might actually try to replicate it in game.
    The art of war, then, is governed by five constant
    factors, to be taken into account in one's deliberations,
    when seeking to determine the conditions obtaining in the field.

    These are: (1) The Moral Law; (2) Heaven; (3) Earth;
    (4) The Commander; (5) Method and discipline.

    I'm kind of struck by the lack of color and I wonder if that was on the part of the creators or if they think (or know) Rome was actually that beige.

    It's always depicted like that haha. Must be because everyone and everything was made out of marble.

    There should be a lot of orange coloured bricks. Not all the walls would be covered. However, look to this not for the sake of photo realism, but for the sake of grasping the layout and size of this marvel of an ancient city.

    Looking at the scope of their architecture projects (the Circus Maximus dwarfs everythig around it) I can't help but be amazed what people could build 1700 years ago. Actually there is a Roman bridge in Spain that is stil in service today...

    Ancient Rome's plumbing is still partially used today. It's quite amazing.

    This reconstruction reminds me of the Byzantium 1200 project - http://www.byzantium1200.com/index.html
