You probably thought it was Fejoa or Red-Kangaroo posting stuff, but it was actually me, the newcomer! Sorry to burst your bubble, I know I've been kinda just been popping around everywhere, but perhaps you'll appreciate what I'm about to say. With the end of the year approaching, I've finally gotten some free time to try my hand at actually coding. Boy, is it tough... but I'll use this topic to show my developments for the city/dungeon/other stuff I started planning in the quest I made
. I'm posting here to see if the stuff I make seems nice and reasonable, and also add to this thread with progress:
So, if you take a look at the first picture, you'll see the base of a pretty large, generic mansion. The floor is made out of expensive carpet, to show off the vast wealth of one of Mellis's patrons. Sapphire Floor represents doors, Silver represents walls (which I might keep that way
), octiron is for items, and dark-gold is for people. We have a storage area (top left), a dwarf room (bottom left, explosive surprise there, huh?), a guard room (next to the dwarf room), a main room, with the main guy at the center surrounded by probably genies eventually, a bedroom (top right), a pet room (see water), and an treasury (bottom) right. Not half bad. (Note: This is not the actual structure, as that many gems would be too valuable, but the distinct colors is good for reference)
In the second picture we have the town. I very much like the center, but hate the outside. The way I'm planning for it to go is just a line of peddlers selling a variety of stuff, like a bazaar, or an agora, or... an Ernomouse Equipment Emporium
. I liked the latter the best, so I've called it the marketplace/emporium. Outside of that I've placed some simple houses and a pool, but since the current code doesn't allow me to place rooms randomly inside rooms, I can only go with these pretty awful generic 9x4 felt tents
. I've very open to suggestions on what to put there.
There it is. It's a fully functioning area as of now, and I've used the house_on_the_steppe default (wiki was a great help), so it does correctly place on the map. More work will follow this post, starting with decorations and actual walls, then a new team. Remember to please, please, offer feedback on what I should and shouldn't do.
