-KingLeno's assets: The Home Depot

73 posts in this topic

Speaking of shopping assets, one popped into my head that I'd love to see, if you have any desire to do it.

Costco.

It seems to fit in with the others you've released so far.

Either way, I'm enjoying all the assets you've done.

This is why this next asset will be my last one for quite a while. I spent probably 6-7 at work and home learning to use the illumination map with randomized lights and ranges to create shadows, finally tried it with the blue lights in the asset editor and absolutely hated the way the lights looked with the blue light. Spent about 5 minutes to create an illumination map using the diffuse color and it looked 1,000 times better. Before calling it a night, I decided to compare the two side by side in-game on my desktop (i use a laptop to design and with workshop turned off), and....my game is frozen on the Paradox logo. So f*n time consuming. Spent another hour troubleshooting.

 

*seems like the issue was that I unsubscribed to Improved assets panel mod so I could use the Don't Crash mod, when I resubscribed to improved assets, everything loaded without a problem.

Sorry to hear you had troubles with your game. I had the same thing recently - and couldn't find a solution for two days. Majorly frustrating. Sounds like you really need a break. :)

EDIT: Just wondered if you are planning to release the police station before your break?

I'm looking forward to these.

I got your Express and Barnes and Noble. They look really nice, though I haven't gotten them put down in my city yet. When I loaded up an older city, for some reason a bunch of my uniques were locked. I had them all unlocked before. I don't know what's up with that, but anyway. I'm be on the lookout for these.

New Beale Street asset that I've been working on since before MoveIt. Still got a ton of work texturing and creating props for this one. Next time I do a set of these buildings, i'm going to do them separately instead of by blocks, too many different textures.

Preview of future shopping center. The pic is only duplicates of the first store which is pretty much finished.

I'm really looking forward to this. I love run-down assets and I need more of them. Feel free to throw some graffiti on there too.

There is some....but I love to use small overlapping textures so a lot of graffiti on one building creates issues.

Totally understand. I wish we could get more graffiti 'billboard' props so I could make my own. The ones on the workshop are great, though they flicker a lot. Not sure what causes that. But I'd always love to have more. Like I've said before, nothing says run-down like some ugly gang graffiti.

Can't wait to see these hit the workshop. Your assets are seriously invaluable. Thank you for all of them.

Just want to say I am a fan of the diversity of your latest assets, @kingleno. A small-med grocery store, a fancy cosmetics store, and the new car center. Really nice!

Thanks, more like ADHD creation. I can't stick to one theme for more than a couple assets.

I've also been working on this Children's Hospital texture upload for since December. Haven't been able to focus on closing it out though. And this Cheesecake Factory has been in the works for just as long. I've been intimidated by the amount of different textures on there, but finally made some time this weekend to make some huge in-roads towards completion.

Did you make the cheescake factory logo yourself?

kinda, sorta, not really. the outline of it was on the sketchup 3d warehouse, but I basically had to trace over that one to create a new one to get the triangles down.

      I've been lurking about the forums for a good long while since my last journal (which, unfortunately, is not to be resurrected) - and trying out a few different approaches to the game before settling on a style/gameplay that hopefully will be sustainable in between real life. I think Delvedene failed because it was far too ambitious - finding all the perfect mods and assets, along with the micro-management of things like farms and stuff got in the way of enjoying the game.
      So, I'm playing one of the vanilla maps, unlocking everything (including all 25 areas - I was hoping to use Area Enabler, but that's broken since the last DLC, so I had to spend most of my money buying all the areas - on the other hand, having a reasonably limited amount of money helps me to prevent just wallpapering the map with cityscape ), and removing all the highways and railway.
      What I like about the vanilla maps is that they offer wide grassland areas surrounded by woods, which offer a natural limit to town growth. Contours are also a good guide (anyone know how to get the game to keep contours on display when laying down road?) What I don't like about the vanilla maps is the prebuilt highway network. I also don't like the rate at which you unlock new areas with population growth: you end up being forced into super dense small towns.
      ----
      Chelsea
      The town of Chelsea currently stretches along one main road (which will go on to connect to another town by the river later - below the image), with three other roads: the first, leading into Stepano (right of the image) - the industrial estate where most of the Chelsea residents work; another leading to the Cockerell farms (top left); and the third heading off to where yet another town is planned (to the left).
      In the background you can see Mt Chelsea.

      Chelsea again, from a different angle (Stepano to the bottom). You can see a thin belt of trees separating Chelsea from another grassland area where the next town is planned (mid-left). In the background is Mt Runcorn, where an old fortification sits (put there by the map designers, but just outside the 25 tile limit).

      And a closeup of the Chelsea Cemetary, surrounded by some parklands (open space is going to be a big deal in these towns - I am desperately trying to avoid wall-to-wall buildings).

      Release Trailer

       
      The expansion, titled “Mass Transit,” will bring new forms of transportation to the game, allowing mayor-players to offer in-game citizens new ways to get across town by land, sea, and air. With new transit service buildings, mass transit hubs where lines can exchange passengers, new scenarios, new landmarks, and new road types, Mass Transit will provide veteran players of Cities: Skylines with more choices and options to personalize their cities than ever before.

      Mass Transit will feature:
      Sick Transit, Glorious Money: Add a wealth of new transit options to your city, and add wealth to your city’s income! Let your citizens get across town in ferries, blimps, cable cars, and monorails!  Orderly Hub, Bub: New mass transit hubs can bring all of your services together, letting citizens change rail lines in one building, or hop from the bus onto the ferry, or even find their way through a sprawling monorail-train-metro station. Become a Roads Scholar: Explore a set of new challenge scenarios focused on solving traffic problems and adding new transit systems. New road types, bridges and canals adds variety to your city, and new ways to solve its challenges. Become an expert in traffic flow, and then use that knowledge to improve your city! New Hats for Chirper: NEW. HATS. FOR CHIRPER. (and also new unique buildings, policies and achievements. But HATS!)
      Per usual, the new expansion will arrive together with a free update to the base game upon release. This free update adds mod-inspired features to traffic management, such as an extended public transport budget, emergency vehicle overtaking and more road features. The patch will also include the much-requested ability to name roads.
