Modular Homes & Buildings

Postby DanielRavenNest ID:DanielRa » Mon Sep 20, 2010 2:45 pm

I have been working on sets of modular building kits to make prefabs out of. Previously I had done commercial type building parts, which can be seen on Main Street in Tharsis, and Tiki huts, which can be seen in Tharsis and Sandbox city. My latest is for residential homes. Here are a few WIP photos. The basic house kit is about 75% done, I still need to make the roof parts. The parts are generally made in multiples of 1 meter sizes, so the grid snaps will line them up exactly.

Thank you so much, Arzach. Here are some more WIP photos. Once I get the roof done, it will be a finished "basic kit". Then the next step will be to make optional materials, and some non-standard pieces like 45-angled walls and some accessory parts like stairs.

If people want apartments, sure. For now I am adding more house parts for variety. Here are corner stones and window shutters I did today:

I have now redone the demo houses in Tharsis using the modular kit parts. Those will be uploaded hopefully in the next few days. In the mean time, here are some photos of what can be done with the kit. As it stands now, there are 91 parts (cgf models), and 161 material files, since many of the parts have alternate textures. The kits are available to tenants in my cities, and if I can figure out a way to offer it in other cities, I would like to.
