[WIP] Port City

Post by AxlTrozz » 22 Aug 2008, 16:37

just concepts of a waterfront city, then I'll do the outlines
I wanted add something unique to this concept, the building itself imitates the elephant anatomy

Oh! I am reminded about some of the (denser) river markets/bazaars I’ve seen in India. Lots and lots of smells, sounds, colours and activity. It must be the elephant... :lol: Anyway, I think it is a nice concept! And perhaps the ghats¹ of India might suit this image.

I thought we were going for more of a slum for port town.

My intention was to use the new tileset by Irukard for the port town.

But do not let this stop you from keeping up the work at this tileset. I am sure we can use it for something different.

Absolutely, I completely agree with you, and Irukard's tileset is perfect for the port, I'm just trying to create some concepts may be for a different location, or may be not even a port at the end, but something useful for the game :)

What about a city like Venice? Of course with your personal style but with lots of water and bridges.

Why not? A modern architect had a similar idea:

I do like the idea having a animal / monster at the end. But why not using a monster that really "excist" in TMW instead of a elephant? Maybe a mouboo or something?

I'm working now on adding some characteristic port town tiles.

I'm not sure how do we plan place really huge objects on map. Like tiles? Or maybe we should place them like sprites?

EDIT: Sprites could be better, since we could move it like NPC's.

Using such huge sprites which move around could in fact work on TMWServ. But turning will be a problem and it would be a bad idea when characters are supposed to walk on them.

I'd rather prefer to create ships from tiles.

I think tiles gives more options. If the tiles are designed really well, you can make different ships from them. (ship with / without a sail, etc). Nice ship btw.
