Bullet, I don't mind the help at all. I've been looking at a ton of ref images and I've definitely seen those on houses but those often look neat, modern and sturdy. I want more of a dilapidated, slap dash shack with stuff just tacked onto it over time. More random pieces to come

Chirone, I used that script I linked you :3, for irregularity. Then I used the soft mod (with a global falloff so it affects everything around it) to sag some parts.

Thanks Jay! That's exactly what I'm going for ^^

Updates coming soon!

UPDATE!..finally.

Did I ever mention how much I loathe UV mapping? I know I won't have time to make all the little tidbits that reflect the daily lives of the inhabitants so I'll just have to roll with it.
I have quite a bit to do in a short time, like get those boats in there, spruce up the sky, assemble the mats for the houses (that's the big one), gamma correction, setup the passes and get it out.

Thanks! The grass patches are proxies, my graphics card would probably punch me in the chops for trying to have that many polys.


And no, they're not oily rainbow colored houses lol, its just the UV test texture >.>

screenies!

Hope you dont mind Genny but another suggestion, you need some form of boats may be in the grass just showing.......dave

Edit: I look at thing in two ways does it look good and how does it work, yours ticks the first box but how do these people move around

I don't mind suggestions at all, atleast I'm getting feedback. Though I did say I was adding boats when I posted the last render :p
