My Citadel is finally done (after months of work heh). The only thing incomplete is the underground mall, which I'll get around to eventually. And the whole citadel needs to be lit up better, cause right now its very unsafe at night. I'll take more pictures and upload the save later.
3x Aerial shots.
And a cropped (because the full image is 16 MB....) Cartograph
Texture pack is Dante's Albion
My next project is either a desert palace, or a temple district with (huge) temples to various elements and such.
I'm hoping this belongs in this thread; I've been working on my desert city on and off for over a month now. It's not legit by any means; I meant it to be, but in the end I didn't want to trash the landscape for all the sand/sandstone I needed. . . ah well.
Desert city at noon. The temple/shrine towers are too big, I think; and I really need to put fountains/gardens in them. I was thinking of shortening the towers and putting in big trees, with their branches spilling out the sides?
Streetview during the day. I should have taken pictures with a different texture pack; this city was made with Aza's Arid in mind, but it still looks good with stuff like Doku's.
There's multiple layers -- I wanted it to be Morocco/Anasazi . . . the fence ornamentation on the doors is more Asian, but it looks OK to me (and check out that awesome interior ).
Also, while the lamps are cool looking IMO, they're bulky -- they're 3x3 around. I'm looking for attractive alternatives.
Nightview. The whole city is pretty well lit, although right now it's too reliant on random torches sticking out of the ground. I'm trying to get away from that . . .
Another nightview. This one is more for the height perspective -- it's very vertical. The lowest point you see here is not the lowest level of the city.
I'd love to hear anything constructive! A lot of the stuff in this thread is awesome -- seriously! and I'm running out of ideas -- there's not much I can think of to do without breaking the desert sand/sandstone theme.
EDIT: Is it cheating if I make this into an individual WIP thread? I think I'm going to; I 'd really like ideas for making this look better. Hmm.
