    Hi everyone,

    I am very excited to announce that this is going to be the home of Premium BLUEPRINTS for existing and future 3DForge packages.

    Premium BLUEPRINTS are new, easy to use, handcrafted prefabs that expands your collection of available scene building art assets.

    It is a cool, exciting and productive way to expand creativity and help you save time and simultaneously get your hands on Custom Handcrafted designs straight from me, the asset developer. It will almost be like having me in your studio ;)

    I will share thoughts, mini tutorials, with tips and tricks that will enrich your scene building experience and hopefully have us all learn some new things from each other. Come and be part of this by sharing your creative thoughts and provide constructive feedback.
    Post requests and suggestions either here in this forum or you could email me direct at info@3dforge.co.za I try my best to accommodate everyone.

    Bookmark and follow this thread to get all the latest news, screenshots and release information as it becomes available.

    *** I have it here in the Work In Progress section for it will be growing and receive regular updates.




    FAQ:
    This will be updated over time so please ask questions in the thread to help expand the information.

    What are Premium BLUEPRINTS ?
    - They are easy, ready to use, out the box, handcrafted designs or recipes for new prefabs.

    How are Premium BLUEPRINTS made ?
    - They are created using existing prefabs from Unity Asset Store packages that you already to own.

    How difficult are Premium BLUEPRINT to install and use ?

    - Very easy. They are prefabs like any other prefab. Just drag and drop them into your scene.

    What is included in a typical Premium BLUEPRINT package ?
    - ONLY prefab data. No mesh of texture data is included.

    What is NOT included in a Premium BLUEPRINT package ?
    - The base package(s) that the prefabs obtain their mesh and texture data from.

    What do I need to be able to use Premium BLUEPRINTS ?
    - A BLUEPRINT package will have specific package requirements stated in the package description to let you know what art package(s) you would need installed first, to be able to use the BLUEPRINTS as prefabs.
    - The Premium BLUEPRINTS grab Mesh and Texture data from these specified packages.
    - You need to own the base package(s) as indicated on the Premium BLUEPRINT package product page description, decompressed and already installed in your project space.
    - As example, you would need to own the latest Village Interiors Kit installed to have excess to an Adventure Bundle with a collection of Interior scenes.

    Is there a way for users to first test this cool new thing risk free ?
    - Yes, I have a FREE Premium BLUEPRINT package available right now, that have 46 X 5 STAR ratings and many very happy written reviews expressing the ease of use and happiness with the example.
    - Please be sure to first have the Village Interiors Kit & Village Exteriors Kit installed.
    - Then grab the FREE BP Sword & Shield Inn and test for yourself.

    What will they cost ?
    - These Premium BLUEPRINTS will be inexpensive, paid for packages mostly in the form of thematic Adventure or Quest Bundles.
    - a collection of Interior scenes that you would need to flesh out from small to large quest/story events.
    - a collection of a certain style of Exterior houses, shops, and other buildings for villages with included village layouts.
    - a collection of Farm Homestead layouts to scatted along the countryside.
    - a collection of Sewer layouts
    - and much more ...

    How can I help influence the packages that will become available ?

    - Engage me here in this forum or email me at info@3dforge.co.za and share your ideas, they very likely can become part of a bundle.

    Integration with other Asset Store packages ?

    - Premium BLUEPRINT packages that for instance have Village Exteriors Kit contents would be integrated with other packages like Gaia, GeNa or other Procedural World products that with further enhance their usability.

    There will be a:

    @S4G4N ,

    Love this idea. Castles, whole castles, and on a bigger scale city and town walls with gates, bridges, portcullis etc. Merchant houses. More inns! Stables. Shops... The list is of course endless... :)

    I wonder how long it'll be before some of the blueprints are nearly complete and there's a sudden realisation that some mesh pieces are missing and thus there's also an update needed to the parent asset pack as well? :confused: :D

    I know, I made a full sci-fi city using the medieval interior and medieval exterior packs, only to discover that all my pieces were missing.

    HAHAHA, luckily you know me well enough to post this very good and valid question ;)

    @smada-luap & @Whippets , I have anticipated that I would get this question so I have a very good and welcome answer for the two of you :D

    Lets first of all not label them as "missing", but rather as "Parts that would also be great to have"
    The Village Interiors Kit comes with 25 DEMO scenes. When I put them together I discovered many things that would be cool to also have. Now I am not going to go nuts and add more full sections with HUGE contents, but do see the potential for small contents additions along the way. It makes sense, since when you play with the assets more you will obviously come across new and fun usage cases that would warrant these kind of addition via contents updates.

    So yes, these Premium BLUEPRINTS would understandably require you to always have the latest updated version of the packages that are required to use them as described in there respective pages when they get released.

    Hope that answers the question

    I'd like to see some blueprints related to dungeons and catacombs from the interiors kit. You could make a series of larger modular dungeon segments that all snap together. So a variety of rooms and corridors that can be used to quickly create a large dungeon or catacomb.

    Glad you like the idea, everyone that have used BLUEPRINTS and seen how easy they are to use, want more.

    Some great thoughts, basically some small and larger dungeon parts that can then by adding several together make very large dungeons and undead catacombs. that is a great way to build even more very easily.

    Thanks for the feedback

    Cheers

    @S4G4N ,

    I think some larger scale stuff is a must, within which we can place other smaller blueprint and other prefabs...

    @milan8888 , Absolutely :)

    There will be Premium BLUEPRINTS for the Tile A Dungeon - Sewer Kit
    There will be other future Tile A Dungeon themed packages as well.
    The whole method of building Layout super-fast without having to drop 1000's of tiles has been well received and everyone that have used it can agree and love it.

    All packages that will receive Premium BLUEPRINTS will carry the logo on the package page on the Unity Asset Store

    Great. Have long since downloaded the free premium blueprint and looking forward to the others now... Even paid. ;)

    [Edit] don't overlook perhaps integrations for premier blueprints... For Dungeon Architect and (extension) for GAIA...?

    Great idea! I would love to see a blueprint for a library - perhaps different sizes from a small village library to a large one in the capital city!

    Hey @Teila
    Glad to see the excitement, I am too :)

    I am busy with them.
    So nice to play with my own "LEGO" set of assets and seeing how well the modular system works over and over.

    Hey, Just a suggestion, but are there any plans of adding interior to these blueprints? Would be great, if possible.

    That question gets a " BIG definite YES "
    All Exteriors Premium BLUEPRINTS would not get all just them, for many might then feel that they do not want to pay for the extra work and they do not want or need that.
    Adding them to ALL Premium BLUEPRINT packages also would mean that I will for obvious reasons add the Village Interiors Kit as a requirement, and then possibly reduce sales of such packages.
    I am not far from done with the first Interiors only Premium BLUEPRINT packs, that will not be built with Exteriors in mind, like dungeon and large Epic libraries and similar cool destinations.

    I like the way you thinking :)

    I was thinking of a package for Interiors and another one for Exteriors that would have larger end results
    For Interiors, like a "5 Wonders of the World"
    - Epic Ancient Library
    - Ancient Dungeon
    - . . .
    - . . .
    - . . .

    Same kind of thing for the Exteriors.

    Please do add suggestions here for me to look at and possibly do.

    Cheers

    @S4G4N ,

    I would like to see blueprints based on Internal and External Kits together with moving doors, some particles thrown in (lights, torches, fireplaces, smoke etc ) so you can go in and out of buildings?

    Yes, in fact I worked with the developer to produce it.
    He still commented that the Village Interiors Kit working so very well, perfect pivot points and easily understandable , well crafted modular system.
    That is why he wanted to use it. It makes his Plug-in "sing" and hy, it makes mine lokk good and display those mentioned features

    Keep in mind segments like corridoors, stairs, T-junctions and 90 degree corner segments for creating a maze.
