Title: Mod Set: South Africa In Progress
Post by: angainor88 on August 19, 2017, 06:08:48 PM
Hey, so I am new to this forum and to modding, but I made my first mod!

Am gonna start on a set based around this theme (South African Architecture) next I think. Thank you to all the people here for helping me through it!

This first one is a cottage in the Cape Dutch style.

The first model of the Xhosa House is (kinda) complete! Well, the blender part, no textures or AO yet.

It may take a while to get more done, cause I am moving next week, and gotta spend all weekend packing...

Woo! Moving complete! Unpacking... halfway?

But I also finally have my houses. Mostly done, still a few tweaks, mostly on the footprint when I figure it out.

Just finished making all the models for the next group (Cape Dutch styles houses) in Sketchup. Going to start putting them all in blender today, but there are 9 models, so it might take a bit. I made them too fancy...

My eventual plan after these are done is to make some Bo-kaap style rowhouses and then a boarding house, and then figure out how to put them all in one file. And then I'll be done (with the housing set). Making these is a bit addicting, I keep coming up with new plans for things I want to do...

Well I have most of the next one built... I just keep getting errors when I compile it. Asking for files that don't exist again *sigh*

Anyone up to staring at code? or should I ask in the Tips and Help thread?

if it ask for files that doesnt exist then it is because the links inside your .rsc are bad and not properly named.
if it ask things like work.rsc cropfile.rsc sharedelements.rsc.... you have to put a copy of the asked file in the proper folder.

without providing the names of the files that give you errors... doesnt help to determine what to do

Sorry, called away to dinner.

Yeah I keep looking for the thing that is named wrong, and I just can't find it. It keeps asking for a CapeDutchHouse.001.rsc.

I must just be missing something, but I have stared at all of it for hours...

the name of the texture is wrongly named for 1 of your mesh : mesh02

Well thanks to your help, I have finished the Cape Dutch House, and am 3/5 through the set. You guys put out everything so fast, I don't know how you do it >.<

You should see some of the originals (that are still around, that is). They are very fancy :)

And there are modern ones "inspired" by the style, which are also fancy, but in a different way (mostly in being HUGE mansions).

Well, I finally finished the Bo-Kaap Rowhouses :D

Now I just have to do the boarding house, and then figure out how to package all of them together... Should only take another forever :P

Woo! I finally finished! I got the boarding house made and everything fits together! It seems to work ok in my computer, so hopefully it does on yours too.

Thanks to all of you on the forum for your help (especially RedKetchup and Kid for all the newbie questions I asked).

angainor88 (http://worldofbanished.com/index.php?action=profile;u=8302), I have been enjoying your houses!  I was wondering if you were considering expanding this set, such as having other colorful buildings to coordinate with the row houses?  (School, storage building, etc.)

(And, if you ever felt like updating the row houses, it would be nice if the small green peaked roofed row houses could be in blue and green as well.  :) )

Yeah I am working on expanding the set :) I have two other houses that I have planned to be added, plus the expanded rowhouses, if I can get them to work with more.

I am also going to do an additional set of non housing stuff. I just started on the corner store for that (my sketchup model is half done, I just finished the way too complicated roof).

It takes me a while to do these mods though so it might take a little :P (plus I have to get some reference books from the library, so I don't have to rely on google and people incorrectly labeling their vacation pictures)

I am so glad to hear you are continuing with this set!  :)
