These building skins are excellent!
They're exceptionally detailed and the mod you've been working on is going to look fantastic if these are anything to go by.
I especially like the Slavic buildings.
I'm looking forward to more.

Is it my idea or is it that you got the buildings of Cossacks(Game for PC)?

We did get some ideas from Cossacks, however we did not wholly fall into the trap of basically importing buildings from Cossacks wholesale. It was too hard to do that!
At first, I did use some parts from Cossacks. But as time went by and my abilities got better, I started rethinking of how to use those parts in different ways. What I do now is basically recycle stuff. I did own a copy of Cossacks, but all I have left are just the gifs. the best I can do is to recreate spires and domes.
I might be reusing some of these buildings again soon, although I am rather unsure how.
The Varangian buildings were extremely hard, because they were supposed to cover a variety of ethnically diverse civilisations: Sweden, Poland and Russia. We couldn't have buildings look too Russian, nor could we have them look too Western European either!
