This mod replaces the existing Mongol and Persian wonders with unrelated wonders.

Usefulness/Novelty: 1.5
The mod is not terribly useful. The two buildings added have nothing to do with Persians or Mongols, and as such only have use on their own as added buildings. The Persian wonder is a copy paste job cobbled together from one of Kor's Age of Chivalry wonders, and not nearly as professionally done. The Mongol replacement is decent enough, but is rather bland and not terribly novel at all. The audience that will have use for this mod is extremely limited; the audience with a real need for it is probably nonexistent.

I feel there really needs to be a point to these cut and paste mods, because anyone with paint and a couple of hours can do one. Unless the building is in some way useful or unique, there's just so little point.

Quality/Instructions: 1.5
The Mongol wonder is well made as far as cut and paste buildings go, even if it does lack some details and structure. Still, of the two buildings, this one could be used and fit well with the existing graphics.

The other building is much more poorly made. It is cut off at the bottom and missing a large chunk. There are some bits floating unattached on the right side. It's basically unusable in my opinion.

The anchors are also not correctly set, meaning that the building graphics do not sit inside their selection base. The anchors are not even close to being right, which is something that any interested user will need to first address.

The actual file submission is probably the most disappointing part of the whole thing. It's in akx, which is a swiftly dying format. To create a small mod like this and not include the slp's is a poor choice. Worse, it is in two separate files, meaning you cannot even use both at once. One can decompile both scripts and obtain the slp's that way, but it is an extra burden to place on the downloaded that is pointless.

The submission also includes the MPS project files, but without the slp's, these are useless.

Additional Comments:
The actual cut and paste quality is not terrible, in fact the creator of this mod did a decent job with regards to light and shadow. The skill to make something worth downloading is there. Unfortunately, sloppy mistakes and a lack of purpose make this mod a below average effort.
