This thread is to test if a isometric style building would fit on game or not...

First the concept...

Then the texture and palette...

And the current progress...

Nice, really nice, I don't know if we will install doors but I like it we should find some place to put those images, by the way I'm trying to find something to put at the top of the pillar, any suggestion ?

Brain storming: Something tells me the top would look good if it was made from a different Material (grayish and smooth like glass)
edit: marble maybe (might be hard to create the texture)

As you wish, I'm trying to find something, in the mean time, I added your dark side, heh, you know what I mean ...

* added second version Cristal-box-like-ark (I don't know what I'm doing)
** added third version jade-stone like style

Not sure if this helps

Edit: improved the glass one

Image Image

also your jade one looks nice (but it might be more effective if the design was something recognizable like a beetle or something. also a little less saturation)

Also could you imagine a town with this style

I’m completely crazy I’ve already imagined the glass with a small particle effect…. And now to show you just how crazy I am: wouldn’t it be spectacular if this were a pedestal for a large statue (like the colossus of Rhodes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colossus_of_Rhodes ) It would be great to start new players at the base of the statue or have it be the center of a city - its fun to dream

No comment on other than pulling of some "isometric" (we are basically talking about 45 degree walls here aren't we?) things in the game: well, it's quite mandatory for variation. For example the current horrid excuses of city walls should benefit from a little perspective play a lot.
This message used to be meaningful.

btw didn't you guys noticed that this shape is something that could not exists because it isn't geometric shape. If it is a kind of pillar it at least should be symmetric.

Looks pretty symmetric to me :? :?:
EDIT: Maybe if you could explain what you mean?

I prefer the left-hand one.

So this is the side view of this pillar?

Or rather you aim to make something like this?

Right now it looks like first one. Is that correct?

its the 2nd (i think) but your looking at the edge 100% head on so you see the edge as a straight line rather than a arch

weather and rain have eaten away at the decorative limestone at the top of the piller
