Another short update for you. I have been working seriously on the housing for the game. We will begin with a small village on the rolling hills and meadows of the Bloodlands. I made a few houses but just couldn’t get the feel I wanted. Then, quite by accident, I was looking through some assets I had in my folders and found the perfect house. It needed a bit of work. I changed the base of the house, re-textured all of it but the roof and made the proportions a little better for my needs.
Here are the results:
I added some props for atmosphere, a few stately oaks and set everything along the newly constructed road. Behind the house you see three bee hives which produce honey for the family to sell to locals. A small garden full of plants and lovely flowers adorn the front yard.
This is the smallest of the houses, with only one room shared by the peasant family. I plan to use this house as a base for more houses, some of wattle and mud like this one and others of stone form the nearby quarry or even wood. Larger houses or houses with additions will be available as well.
My next update, I will show the building stages of the house as well as a few more models. The thatch roof will need to be replaced every so often as it gets dark and moldy after a while. Upkeep on a house will keep you busy or you can hire someone with skills to do it for you.
I have a few more lovely pictures I thought you might enjoy. In game, the grass and trees move with the wind. It is very nice but needs a few sheep, don’t you think?
Oh, and one more…not in a pretty scene but can anyone guess who might live in this house?
I will give you a hint…the roof is made of leaves! 🙂
Hope you enjoyed this brief but very scenic post!
