The Gardens - Entrance is above the research place. I tried to make a quiet area which would be some kind of park. I'd admit placing the flowers to make it seem less artificial was hard; I decided to place things randomly. - note: I was limited by bricks to use, I'm not entirely sure what type of garden I've made here.. but some parts of it are meant to be artificial except where the plants grow.


Island progress: 48% complete

To do: 2 outdoor grids (tunnel entrance & the port), inside the town buildings, the research facility.

Looking good, but maybe the edge of the.. fountain, I think, could be changed a bit.

Not really a fountain but it is a water feature.
Its a pool of still water. I've seen some gardens have it; I think my ideas atm are coming from playing Mass Effect and seeing the Zen gardens on the citadel.

I couldn't find a step brick like the others round the fountain which goes in 2 directions.. so I improvised with those blocks instead. The water is meant to be lower than the steps.

Can't edit, new post.

I forgot to upload a screenshot of the town grid. (Should of shown before 'The Gardens' grid)

Town: I wouldn't really call it a town looking at it, but that's what I called the project name for some reason.
The town includes: A musuem, a shop, a town hall, a warehouse, 2 buildings undecided, 2 sewer entrances.


Update for 'Makers house' grid: I fixed the water now so its the lighter variation.


Tunnel Entrance: This is the entrance to the mine (official one the locals use), it has a staging area for cargo. The tunnel is runned by a company that upkeeps the mine. - I may do a few edits to this grid, but I feel atm the more I add the more I'll mess it up.

------
1 outdoor area to be completed - The port for where all boats leave the island.
Indoor areas: -listing by location-

Town:
  • sewers
  • museum
  • shop
  • warehouse
  • 2 buildings
  • town hall
Other places:
  • Inside the tunnel (2-3 grids)
  • Research Centre (1 grid lower, 2 grids upper)
  • Village bridge leading to 2 grids - leading to the port

You shouldn't worry that much about double posting, we're not paranoid after it.

It looks very nice, but a bit flat. Maybe you should try adding some slopes or small hills here and there.

I haven't abandoned this project but as always the project is on hold.
- I'm currently trying to build an 'LED water temperature alarm' for my Engineering project (3 weeks left), with assignments mounting and all I barely have much free time.

After 3 weeks and having no in-college project consuming free time, I could continue this.

Any suggestions on the world could be useful though when I get back to it in 3 weeks.
- I've already listed locations I will be doing. (I intend on making more than 1 island but I think its safer to have at least something done than nothing, so I will try and test just the 1 island once its fully complete)

I'm back and I've got an update.
I have created the docks area and I've also made a map which shows you how it will all link together.

The idea was to create something completely different from the LBA maps while using the LBA tilesets (as they're the only ones I've got).


I still need a name for the town area and possibly the island later (but first I gotta finish the outdoors). If anybody has any name suggestions feel free to leave them, you will be credited for the name somewhere.

Update: I've done all the grids needed for making a complete environment.
We can sort out more maps later, first we need to sort out converting them and getting them working in LBAnet format.

Check the file attachment for the full map. This includes not only outdoors but also all the indoor grids. (Sorry it might be blurry images, but I was trying to reduce the file size.)

Looks pretty good! As for the museum, I think the interior and the exterior don't really match. But you do have some quite interesting designs. Have you minded adding invisible blocks to your grids?

I'm looking forward to testing this!

Looks very nice.
So if you are ready we can start plugin things together into the game.
I will send you a pm with my email adress. We can talk about the details over there.

I do admit the musuem blocks don't quite match up, the same with the cafe in town. I was just making do with what was avaliable.

I've already done the invisible bricks; hopefully there won't be any gaps or anything, I've checked them all but sods law states that I'm bound to miss one minor thing somewhere. If any bugs are found that I've missed feel free to post.


I'm ready to plug it all together now. I still gotta consider the music per scene but overall I've done enough to feel okay with what I have.
I feel that I should put up what I have now as I've done alot and there are plenty of zones to visit and enough space for plenty of quests and expansion.

I've sent the files to Rincevent so I can only wait and see what happens now.
Edit: I just remembered what I forgot to add in that email Rincevent.
Spoiler:
Island folder is outside zone; its subfolder (indoors) is indoors.. and Colobee Mountain is all indoor zones.

-----
Key:
Green = Confirmed and unlikely to change
Orange = May change
Red = Undecided and is very likely to change

As for factions, quests and general plot.
Spoiler:

Factions
There are 3 factions known;
  • Colobees (recoloured Mosquebees - Native to the world)
  • Techlones (mixed race - Most buildings are built by them but they colonised the world sometime ago)
  • Magilonies (mixed race - Mages who split off from the Techlones because of a difference of opinion.)

Quests
I was going to make it so that quests would reveal what is going on and also history of Colozen, as well as providing small rewards.

The idea is that you can do quests for the groups to get special items that unlocks set areas for you to visit, which in turn allows more quests and progression can be made.

General plot
You start off as a clone (It would explain why everybody has the same model) and being a clone you are unappreciated by all the groups in this new world of Colozen.

Colozen itself is far far away from Twinsun & Zeelich and it isn't really a topic spoke about as many people don't know about Twinsun or Zeelich on this new world. The Techlones were explorers and stopped to colonise Colozen with the Magilonies untill they met the Colobees who didn't like the idea of the strangers from the sky blasting their world apart to take resources.

A battle waged for some time and the Magilonies didn't want to take part in any of it at all so they split off completely from the Techlones.
It has been a few years and peace has been made between the Colobees and the Techlones but there is a feeling of uneasy around both the two groups. They are friendly towards one another now but they'll never trust one another.
-----

I've completed the first Island (Tech-Island) and I won't be starting on its neighbouring Island (Mystic-Island) till I'm sure the first Island is running ok.
