Hello people of Simtropolis!
I opened this topic to present my first 3D creations for CSL and to see what you think about them. I'm slowly starting to get the hang of it and want to learn how to get better and perhaps quicker in asset creation. My Simtropolis name isn't the same name as my Steam account name which is KraIstGerecht (visit my Workshop here!).
Most of the things I'll show off here use creations from other people (mostly props, but this also includes all the knowledge collected by the community). I want to thank those people for their work and making things like this possible!
I also want to say that I'm very grateful for any tips and tricks you may have for me and others, so don't keep them to yourself!
My first assets are four Level 1 residential and commercial ones. I made them to get some more realistic buildings in my cities and a little more variety, although I hope to be able to make a whole pack of buildings with a matching style. All the building I made so far are pretty generic North America-styled. Some of them may also bear similarites to buildings you may already know from Sim City 4 because I loosely base them on SC4's style:
I think a normal map for the roofs would be a good thing to have (at leat for the residential buildings). I don't walt to too go crazy with the tricount, which is between 500 and 1000 for each building. Each building also has a custom LOD; colour variations are only used for subtle changes of wall and roof colours.
I didn't want to release these to the workshop yet before I got some feedback and knew what to improve. Do you think the level of detail is okay for this type of building? Other than performance reasons I also don't want to spend too much time on one asset to be able to create many different buildings, which I think is feasible for simple buildings like the one above.
I also created some cars at the very beginnig which I think came out pretty good for my first tries which I might show off later. Another building I really want to bring to CSL in the future is the elementary school from SC4, because elementary school assets are still very rare on the Steam workshop.
I hope you like what I showed so far, and as I said, feedback is more than welcome!
Have played off an on over the years so I'm familiar with the game but have hit a roadblock with single-tile residential. I've been watching some YouTube videos of small farming towns with these single-tile residential homes but mine won't develop. I've tried everything but all I have in my town is a single two-tile house. Might anyone please tell me what's going on? (I've searched high and low on Google but nothing.)
Despite being only 4 city blocks, Cabbage Town is the most well known community of Port Renton. Most of these homes date back to the 1850's, when the original Town Site was established. Even though this neighbourhood is now surrounded by higher density buildings to the north & east, and the Skytrain to the west, this community is as tight-knit now as it was 150 years ago.
Hello , another apartment here. It's simpler than the previous one. Although this is lowpoly model but i can make sure it's still placeable in your city. Please enjoy!
