The design is completely modular, I have separate images for individual storeys and the roof, then just combine them to produce building variants.
*edit* and added a selection of buildings for a sense of scale, from houses to decent sized office blocks...

The larger scale looks betterZephyris wrote:*edit* and added a selection of buildings for a sense of scale, from houses to decent sized office blocks...
Good I'll try to come up with another shapeZephyris wrote:Re: Darkmast49Yup, something exactly like that!So something like this..?
Sorry, missed your post! That is almost perfect, two things:
It looks a bit thin, maybe a bit chunkier?
The windows need some more depth, look at the detail of the windows of one of my houses.

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves,
and wiser people so full of doubts.

Do you mean that the whole building is too thin, or only the wall with the windows?
I oriented myself on you buildings, as I didn't know how you scaled your drawings... they are one square in length, but only a half square in width, aren't they?
*edit* ahhh, I get what you mean! Width is good, either for shops or standalone flats/offices. The building should probably be deeper.
I know exactly what you mean, however, to get them looking good, they all need to be tweaked individually to provide the shadow/reflection in the right places. I guess that's the difference in individually drawn sprites and generic ones. As much of a ball-ache as it may seem, I am happy to draw the windows on all your buildings. I think they are good and they need the right edge to them. Once I get started, I'm pretty quick. Do you have a definitive list that you can send me so that I don't miss any out?Zephyris wrote:It would be ideal if you could make a window texture which I could blindly apply across a whole set of building's windows. ...This way it would minimise the pixel pushing work required (do you really want to draw windows by hand for 20 5 storey office blocks!?)...
I will see what I can do. Would you like the doors separate to each building then? I guess that would be a pain. If you have any preference for any buildings, let me know, otherwise I'll use ...ahem... 'artistic judgement'Zephyris wrote:As for doors a selection of brown and coloured ones would also be really useful!
I have the sheet of Temperate houses, the sheet of blocks of flats, and the sheet with the shops/houses as above. I will start on these and wait until advise me of what else needs doing. You mentioned the offices/large blocks are a preview, hence I won't include those yet.
Progress: Happy with that look?
