I will look into that this week end...
As mentioned, I started working on the box-seat level.
So; without further ado about nothing, here is where I got so far:
What do you think? I used layer masks at just about every steps so that it would be easy to swap textures as needed... I need to be a bit creative with proportions on the right most portion of the map, and some of the rooms seem a bit on the smallish side...
Also, I still need to work on the stairs. The two curved stairs worry me a bit, maybe just adding some shadows to RobA's wooden circle will do.
Well; there is a funky bit surrounding the map... I think it is a side-effect of the way I made the raillings... shouldn't be too hard too fix...
That's quite brilliant Simon. You can take off the brown square grid - we'll make this a gridless map to make it easier for more people to use.
For me, the colour is off, and won't mesh with the overall blue and gold colourscheme. Can you desaturate and de-red it and tone it down to the levels of the ground floor map?
I think the map would be improved if all the walls looked the same - so perhaps make the box walls the same colour as the main walls. And in fact, your funky surround bit is the PERFECT colour and texture for the walls - so you should use that!
Otherwise I love it! We'll use some plush blue chairs from Bogie to put in the boxes, and we're done.
I need to lift some patterns from the previous maps and use these instead (that's what I mean with "swapping texture", I meant, patterns, sorry).
In fact, may we should start a thread to post the various patterns so that we can all use the same?
I am not sure about the colour being all that great for the walls, it seems a bit pale to me:
Should we put the chairs or try to make something that look like build in benches?
Simon, check out post 13 of this thread for a wood texture that I was using.
I agree that your walls are not quite right; however they are not the same as the wonderful golden multi-hued woody thing you had on your funky border that I liked so much.
Regarding benches/chairs - that's up to you.
Also, I have tried to curved the planks on the Westernmost side of the building, similar to what Meshon posted here but my efforts are not nearly as good.
Meshon, could you repost your picture, but without the shadow effect?
Hi, I'm just getting that together and I think I'll be able to provide you with a fill layer that should work. Also I'm going to post the walls for the main floor and the basement level. Hopefully within a couple of hours.
