Second floor house complete!

(sorry for the delays, I've restarted playing Fallout 4... my settlements need me!)

Next up I think is the school, then maybe the mosque or the hospital, and a records hall type thing. Also a restaurant!

I am glad to see further development with this set!  I look forward to when they are ready for downloading.

Need a little advice/help for this next part:

I finished building the mosque, but I wanted to change the default "priest" and "chapel" icons. I edited them in the Resource folder, but it didn't seem to change it in game. Do I need to re-run the build resources.bat? or something else entirely?

Thanks!

you must never never never change anything in the resource folder!
you need to work inside your own mod folder, never the game resources folder.

Mod Set: South Africa In Progress


Well with your help, it's complete. I am going to release it as a separate mod from the rest of the South African buildings.

Thank you again, RedKetchup!

The mosque looks great!  I love the style and that it is colorful.

More colorful things!  Nice bee hives!  One day I plan to make a colorful only section, so your buildings will be there!

I like them, I sometimes make more colourful districts and these would fit there nicely :) Would you consider adding shading? that would make them look even better :)

I do have AO maps on them that show up in blender, but they never seem to look the same in game...

I am not super skilled at digital art haha, and am still learning how to use gimp without tearing my hair out.

Shading directly on the texture is important too :) You often might want subtle shading that uses a darker colour of your texture (not just transparent black), and make it more detailed. I have a good example of a lamp I made some time ago for The Sims 2 (but itíll work similarly in Banished too, after all a model is a model and a texture is a texture; Iím in the process of putting my plants into Banished and I donít need to alter things except for the scaling). Here is the final look, and here is the texture. For comparison, here is the lamp before shading, and here is the texture. As you can see, shading made a lot of difference to the final look.

Now for a Banished example, here is my fern in progress (donít worry about the massive size, there will be smaller variants :)), here is the texture, and here is the AO. As you can see, most of the shading work is done on the texture. AO also affects how snow appears on the texture (you can see here that thereís less snow near the roots, exactly where my AO is darker).

I hope it helps :) Feel free to open those textures I posted in Gimp and take a closer look.

Well that was an unexpected hiatus (too many June weddings to go to). But I finished the Cape Town Clocktower! I tried to do some more advanced shading techniques... not sure how they turned out haha. I think the problem is that since the buildings in real life are painted and smooth it's hard to give them extra texturing? I dunno. Working on it haha
