  • As the Sim Mars building Team leader I am asking any one who has time on their hands to help me finish up this set.Please if anyone would like to help me out here I would apprecate it.


    below you will find info on the style of buildings we need.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Utilitarian


    This style is defined by its simple and minimalistic building approach. The buildings should be angular with few to no curves, especially on the lower wealth buildings. They should have a stocky feel to them and they should look like they are built to last. The window openings should be small, especially on lower wealth buildings.


    -Low wealth building will be made up of primarily metal and concrete. The buildings will have very few window openings and the openings will be small. They should have external utilities such as pipes, tanks, and antennas.


    -Med wealth will be similar except Martian brick will start being used. The windows will be slightly larger and the utilities will be less noticeable.
     
    -High wealth buildings will more decorative elements such as arches, decorative glass, etc. Most of the utilities are concealed.

  • I have been looking through the Sim mars site and here's what I need...

    Schools...........

    Elementary school
    High School
    Library
    University

    any style will do as long as it looks Marsy I am not going to be that picky.

    Land Marks We need more of them at the moment I only see one that would be considered a landmark.

    I will add to this list as I finish going through things.

    I have just regrabed all the files you sent to me. I will be reviewing them and post pics of the stuff here soon and get it on the collab. I kinda took a long break from the project due to personal reasons.


    STAMP:
    I need your help to get the MODs into the new exe for the next Beta. Can you help me do that.

    We will need to get the following into the new Beta Release

    UI MOD
    Rock MOD
    Street Textures MOD
    and new Textures

    I will also try to get two maps done for you to add to the new Beta as well. I think I may still have them on a disk someplace.

    Also I will get some growable lots done as well.

    Please let me know if you can do this for me then I think we can release a Beta 2 and people can see what its going to look like more than before...

    Latty: can you do me some Adverts for the project I will need your expert help with that

    Thanks all

    Welcome to Simtropolis! 39.gif

    In the bottom right hand corner of your post, you should see 4 options. "Reply", "Quote", "Top" and "Bottom". If you press Reply, you can use the proper reply box. Make sure you have pop-ups allowed for Simtropolis as the box opens in a new window.

    Cool, you are off for a good start! 

    That looks very neat for a first BAT!

    Some suggestions: 

    -Can you give the day texture a more redish tone instead of blue? Or mabye a slight and subtle redish note to the blue. The reason is so  that the BAT blends in with the rest of the mod. 

    - For the windows: Glass fronts of buildings are unrealistic on Mars for the harsh environment (storms, danger of leaks etc.)  So there is a design rule for SimMars that windows are being kept small. Especially for low wealth level. High wealth level my have more open glass (it's more expensive, because it needs to be very secure)

    So I have  two options to suggest:

    Change the blue parts to be walls, not windows. Put windows up somewhere else, like maybe this (suggestion only :-) :

    habcomplex3kopiemf9.jpg

    Keep the top parts between the mullions glas, the sides should be solid (that way it wouldn't be all glas, would make a good high wealth one). You could make the texture see through so you can add inside stuff and inside nightlights (which would look awesome).

    I really like the modular look of your BAT, that is actually one of the main characteristics of the design style defined for SimMars (if you wonder: there is some information on design style avaialble in the Final Building Styles thread and there will be much more info with the forum revamp probably coming next week) . You can play around stapling multiple levels or make only one level etc. 

    Have fun! Look forward to see more coming! :-)

    --EDIT:   PS: .jpeg file format for pics instedad of .png format saves loading time in the display of the page for those who still on dial-up (like me...)  Thank you :-)  ---
