    Hi everyone,

    In answering a question from the 3DForge Discord channel - Join us

    Royal Quarters Add-on Package:
    Please note, this is not an UPDATE or FREE

    It is a Paid for Texture and prefab Add-on package that will have the Village Exteriors Kit as requirement to be able to use.
    It is not far from being done :)

    I am working on a NEW Roof Set that will be part of this. *** Some of the contents for the Royal Quarters Package (more to be added before release)
    - 6 New Wall Textures.
    ( Tilable left to right from the start )
    ( Working on second sheet that will very possibly be included with brighter colours )
    - Roman type Roof tile texture.
    - Lower pitched roof mesh and prefabs added.
    - New wooden textures for Frames, Window Frames, and other wooden items.
    - BLUEPRINT set of handcrafted buildings using all these new Add-on items
    ( Should be round about 20 BLUEPRINTS )
    - ... will see what more can be added :) ...

    I am looking at getting things done by the weekend if I can help it, so soon soon

    Cheers
    Cobus

    Hey everyone,

    WIP Royal Quarters Add-ons package for the Village Exteriors Kit

    Had an idea and quickly tested What about adding Tris with the Stone Texture from the Castle and Cathedrals Update. I think it worked out well So 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 Units wide Stone Tries also coming with this package What can also be noted is that the slope/angle is the same as Thatch, meaning nice towers and stuff with the thatch mixed with the Stone textures can also be done.
    Like stables, barns and such in a castle, fort kind of setup.

    Hi,

    Almost ready :) !!!
    Screen tests WIP Royal Quarters Add-ons package for the Village Exteriors Kit
    Dumped them into the included DEMO scene from Meadow Environment - Dynamic Nature

    What adds lots of value is the fact that all the buildings in all the villages and locations does not have to just be the normal Medieval style with browns and greys. With the great vibrant colors and the Easter/Oriental Themes added contents you can add building that will also act as memorable landmarks and locations. The Town-hall and other government type buildings can for instance conform to a certain style that can be achieved through a color scheme choice. A certain Merchant Organization of Thief's Guild can have their buildings done in a chosen colors scheme. All these things so that when you get to a new location you with game play experience can already assume certain things and interact with the environment and story in a natural way. It all helps to build immersion and a better game experience.

    I will Update this right at the end but here is a small rundown ( HAHA, was just going to be textures, but you know me
    - 6 New Wall Textures. < EASY Drag & Drop Texture replacement >
    - New Main Wood Textures.
    - New Low Angle Roof set. <3 - 4 Styles>
    - New Roman/Eastern Style Roof-tile texture.
    - 20 Medieval Building Handcrafted Premium BLUEPRINTS
    - 311 New Meshes / Prefabs. < Many of which are Eastern/Oriental Themed elements >
    - 5 Brighter Color Bonus textures. (one empty slot for future addition according to customer feedback) Bamboo Wall Texture included.









    Cheers

    Hi @virror

    I am glad that you like the results, I loved doing it and seeing the results for yourself, you realize that no screenshots can justify what it adds to a scene and to the overall look.

    If you have not yet, please do STAR rate and maybe write a review. It always helps others to make informed buying choices, and like yourself, I want others to be happy customers ;)

    Cheers

    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 "

    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.

    have u ever considered switching those photobased textures and normals to some substances or zbrush sculpts?
    u obviously have experience with modular modelling.
    however i think the textures could be improved.

    For any NEW packs from 3DForge then maybe - as long as they can fit in with existing 3DForge packs. I know that there's a lot of work goes into these textures so that there's a resemblance of the source material but that's about it.

    I'm getting a line separating two levels of focus that moves with my player. Closer to the camera, in focus, a little farther out the textures become out of focus. Also, I don't know if they are related but if I turn around 180 this is what happen to the shadow. It's cut off at approximately the same place away from the camera. Capture2.JPG Capture.JPG

    Unity is swapping in mipmaps on the floor because of the angle. This is normal.
    To make this better, but consume more resources, do the following:

    On your textures, turn "anisotropic" up. This will mean that mipmaps turn on at a greater angle. You can force it on all textures in your quality settings.
    In addition, change "bilinear filtering" to "Trilinear" - that will make it fade in the mipmap smoother by fading them with the higher level.

    Note: you have to do this texture by texture. You should do this on wall/floor/ceiling textures.

    On the shadow, not sure, could be a cascade. might try changing your shadow distance and cascades in the quality settings.

    Thanks @Jaimi for the friendly help ;):):)
    I do not build games so when I saw the question I had no idea what to answer back.
    Great also for others to see and am sure will help others that might have had the same question in the past or future :)

    Hey everyone,

    A quick screen grab of the inside of one of the larger Fishing Village Houses
    Props are a mix of Village Interiors Kit & Village Exteriors Kit prefabs
    I just added some basic Point Lights here to cast some basic shadows and create a bit of atmosphere, but that is going to be for each user to add and tweak to suit their needs.
    Will drop more images soon.

    They are lots of work and it is cool to hear back the value that they provide
    It was an idea that I hoped for and am glad that it is achieving that.
    Thanks for your and everyone else's positive response on them :):):)
