    Absolutely, that is a given
    Out of interest sake, there would be two use cases
    Like the Current Interiors Demo scenes I presume add all these items with the ceiling separate, so that it can be used for Top-Down or FPS with the user just hiding or rather delete the ceilings if they making a Top-Down

    As long as there is a version where the ceiling is part of the prefab I'm happy.

    Hey everyone,

    Playing and testing some of the Upcoming Premium BLUEPRINTS for the Village Exteriors Kit
    Bringing it to life when adding other great assets such as Trees, Animals & Crops just make things lived in.
    I am excited for these releases.

    Hi,

    The answer would be yes.
    The way the BLUEPRINTS would be provided is the following

    A house would typically be given in several ways.
    - Exteriors Shell only with the solid windows.
    - Exteriors and Interiors with the see though openable windows.
    - With plinth and stairs included so that they can be added to heavily sloped areas.
    If want to place on level ground can just delete or hide that plinth component.
    - Clean neat arrangement of prefabs inside each BLUEPRINT for easy management.

    Package requirement would indicate and state

    *** IMPORTANT ***
    Village Exteriors Kit & Village Interiors Kit
    required to make use of this package

    This would mean if you have the Village Exteriors Kit only, that you can make use of most of the contents anyways.
    Just you will not see the interiors data.

    Please let me know if you have any other suggestions, but I think this will ensure that you have really out the box, drag & drop, ready to use solution.

    Hi everyone,

    Sneak Peek at the Upcoming Premium BLUEPRINTS
    Have the Village Exteriors Kit and the Village Interiors Kits installed in project and you can use these beauties.

    Here is a typical Homestead Premium BLUEPRINT
    - a Farmhouse with solid Windows and Exteriors Only
    - a Farmhouse with see thru windows and Interiors included
    - Both with plinths so that it can be added to heavily sloped terrain
    - Using see thru version and created a Homestead layout
    - Dragged into scene and items placed at heights to conform Terrain
    - Adam busy testing and helping to integrate with Gaia as a POI (Point Of Interest)
    - Basic terrain painting around Homestead
    - Added plants ad animals for lived in feel

    Let me know what you think and share some ideas you have in mind for such packages













    Cheers

    @S4G4N I am definitely interested in purchasing this! Say I bought the interiors, exteriors, Cave Adventure, Sewer, Castles, and Catacombs/Crypts. How would blue prints work for each of these if I bought another asset such as DunGen?

    Hi,

    Just for some clarity.

    The Village Interiors Kit includes the
    - Castles & Cathedrals Kit
    - Catacombs & Crypts Kit
    - Taverns & Inns Kit
    They were each extracted from the Village Interiors Kit in case somebody just wanted that section and not want to pay for stuff that they did not need/want. so if you going to get the Village Interiors Kit, you will then automatically have all the contents of those three packages as well as extra other prefabs that are not included in them.

    The first Premium BLUEPRINTS that are being released will require you to have Village Interiors Kit and the Village Exteriors Kit. You can see on the FREE BP Sword & Shield Inn the IMPORTANT notice informing you of this.

    Please note the -25% SPECIAL that is on at the moment for the Village Exteriors Kit and the Royal Quarters.
    You basically getting both kits at the price that just the Village Exteriors Kit would normally sell on it's own.
    It is still going until the 28th Feb 2019.

    The Tile A Dungeon - Sewer Kit will also be receiving a FREE HD Texture update (already 50% done, doubling the current resolution it has) and after that also Premium BLUEPRINTS for it.

    Hopes this give you more useful information.

    Cheers

    Where you do access the BluePrints? Are they included in the assets? I am interested in using the different BluePrints in conjunction with DunGen for a FPS game.

    I am also busy working on a VERY large Dungeon Premium BLUEPRINTS Package that is going to make use of and require the Village Interiors Kit and maybe the Village Exteriors Kit to use it.
    It will have LOTS of rooms/locations and many different connection options/tunnels, T-Juctions, Cross-Junctions ...
    Everyone will be informed here

    Sounds great! I just picked up the Royal Quaters and Exterior packages! Any chance of the Interiors going on sale? :) How easy is it to use BluePrints with Gaia and the automatic spawning?

    Hi everyone,

    PB Farmlands1 is almost ready
    All actual BLUEPRINTS are done
    Exteriors Only & Interiors & Exteriors Combo versions both included
    So if you only have the Village Exteriors Kit, you can still have full use of all those BLUEPRINTS that has Exteriors only
    - 14 x Farmhouses
    - 10 x Farm Yards
    - 10 x Homesteads
    - 2 x Farm Villages

    Below, in highlighted orange to see the handcrafted layout that the BLUEPRINT looks like in the package.
    Drag and drop into your scene, pull the assets down to the ground, paint some basic paths, add some animals, plants and players and there you have a great looking handcrafted farm layouts.

    For those with Gaia, the Gaia integration comes with the package as well, so the placement, and pulling down to ground level is handled for you, as well as texturing.

    I used the Meadow Environment - Dynamic Nature package here for the DEMO scene
    Also, one of the actual included Homesteads - " PB_FL01_Homestead01_E "














    Cheers

    Hi,

    I really do not like it when you get a scene or prefabs that consist of many parts and you just have this giant list.
    I have care full setup the designs to be neat and arranged so that you the developer can easily manage them.

    First of all the end of the name ends with
    > _E for Exteriors Only
    > _EI for Exteriors & Interiors

    Then I have made empty objects with names for each section logically going from the top to the bottom
    Roof at the top and Plinth at the bottom. Don't want the plinth, just hide/delete it
    Interiors nicely separated so that you can manage the assets as you please.
    Door is just there, part of Exteriors group in the GroundFloor object as it logically would be.

    Particles and lighting I have not added for a few reasons.
    Unity have already deprecated some stuff, so I did not want to add anything that could soon become obsolete.
    Secondly, each user have a different take or needs regarding lighting, so I can surely not add what everyone would like.
    Very good particles is available and is very inexpensive on the Asset Store so I rather left that to each add his flavor.



    This careful arranged setup was most of the reason for the time it took to build these.
    Naming convention and neatness has always been part of my packages and want to keep building on that.

    I hope this answers your questions :);)

    Cheers

    Hi everyone,

    The Outposts & Trade Station Premium BLUEPRINT package is almost ready
    Here is one of the curved outer wall layouts.
    Also note, I have added a selection of embankment, kind of retainer wall parts, that can be see very well in the second screenshot. This will allow you for some cool terraced kind of end result, providing you with flatter top areas

    Hi everyone,

    WIP Outpost & Trade Station Premium BLUEPRINT package for the Village Exteriors Kit
    Curved layouts as well
    Everything done, just doing marketing images and then release.
    Flat front wall, curved back wall.
    Added two Outpost Houses BLUEPRINTS that are "under construction"
    Used one of them in this Layout.
    Then added some of the Fort section logs and other parts to show that the house is in the process of being built.

    Hi everyone,

    Playing around with the Village Exteriors Kit & the Outpost & Trade Stations Assets to see how they fit into a Frozen Land demo scene by Nature Manufacture, using Unity 2018.3

    Added no special shaders, Unit Standard and they actually look like the assets already have Snow on them.

    Hey @camta005 ,

    I am almost done with the Medieval Village 1 Premium BLUEPRINT package.
    The Dungeons Premium BLUEPRINTS package is actually already quit far.
    I believe it will really do well.

    It will contain MANY pre-done Rooms, Arenas, Crypts, Dungeons and many more fitting Blueprints.
    For those that want manually assemble their own layouts or with procedural tools.
    Also will have many well put together Pre-done layouts as with the other Premium BLUEPRINT packages.

    Thanks for the interest and I will make sure the package explode with goodness :)

    Cheers

    Thanks, Although I did not purchase farmland and outpost pack yet I am very impressed by their quality but medieval village pack is something I am definitely gonna pick up as I spend literally hundreds of hours making a decent looking medieval village for my game so I know how hard it is.
    PS: Also If it is okay please share some pics :)

    Hey everyone,

    That cool time when I show you new stuff
    These are the first marketing images for the PB Medieval Village 1 Premium BLUEPRINTS > more coming soon

    Almost all of the contents of the PB Medieval Village 1 package is done>
    These are the folders inside the BLUEPRINTS folder for this project.
    - Village Houses x 12
    - Village Blocks x 20
    - Village Shops x 7
    - Village Markets x 6
    - Village Layouts x ??? (Will update when total is in project)

    The idea is that to just give a selection of village layouts would be silly, for then you stuck with just those.
    Rather give small to larger building blocks as well as some completed villages so that you can customize and also build completely new ones easily.
    So by drag and dropping say 4 Village Blocks and a central Market Place you can have an Instant Village Blocks will have lower ground floor type houses, or medium height or then taller ones, so you can really go to "town" with what results you looking for.

    Again, things are neatly arranged inside the Blueprints so that you can manage them as you see fit

    This basic village below is just two blocks that was added.
    Each has 3 houses with all the fences and outside props included.
    These are using some of the tall houses in this package.
    There are normal lower single story and other double story ones in this package as well, the other coming screenshots will show them and other items such as the market places and shops.

    Hey everyone,

    WIP PB Medieval Village 1 Premium BLUEPRINTS

    It just keeps getting better
    :) I LOVE building such scenes
    Playing with your own "LEGO" is just so much fun and satisfying to see the results.

    Here I have used 5 x Village Blocks, 1 x Village Market & 1 x Village Shop
    - Drag and dropped them into the scene
    - Adjusted the houses, fences and props to meet ground level
    - Painted paths
    - Added Plants, Trees and Animals

    The first two screenshots shows the first two steps. and then the rest after all steps.

    Hi everyone,

    I have had a user request for extra files and I added them ;)

    Updates are live for.

    PB Farmlands v1.1
    - Users requested that I supply the Blueprints/Prefabs in a way that they could do Gaia/GENA integration easily.
    - I added the scene files that has the Farm Yards, Homesteads and the Farm Villages that are not single prefabs yet.
    - Just open each of the scenes and you un-hide them one at a time to use.

    PB Outpost & Trade Stations v1.1
    - Users requested that I supply the Blueprints/Prefabs in a way that they could do Gaia/GENA integration easily.
    - I added the scene files that has the Outpost & Trade Stations that are not single prefabs yet.
    - Just open each of the scenes and you un-hide them one at a time to use.

    Hi everyone,

    Playing around with the stunning DEMO scene from RAM 2019 and using some of the buildings from the
    Medieval Villages 1 Premium BLUEPRINTS for the Village Exteriors Kit to just do tests and see how they look in the top notch latest Unity scene
    I would easily say that work perfect and suits the overall look & feel, texture and level of detail.






    I can just say Thanks @NatureManufacture for giving us such great looking assets and work to make my own stuff look good :)

    Cheers
    Cobus

    Nice stuff Cobus!

    I just had this mental flash of grumpy conversations between husband and wife as as muddy feet were continually tracked thru the house :)
