On hold

As usually happens, this project has been pushed to the back burner while I work on a paying contract.  I will continue to work on it periodically, but I am going to focus on some tutorials for the community until I can concentrate on quest writing and building again.

 

Thanks for all of your support!

The Inn of the Last Home

There’s  something about the lighting in this picture.  I just like it.  Also, 10 days is much too long for a new post.

April Fools Foolishness

I was going to put up an April’s Fools post about this being released… but I didn’t want to deal with the backlash.  So instead, here is a real screen.

Humble Beginnings

On the right is the home of the woodcutter Gilon Majere and his wife Rosamun.  They have 3 children.

From Bottom to Top

In the past, it’s been very difficult to make the stairway that ascends through the Vallenwood Trees to the front door of the Inn of the Last Home.  Normal spiral stairs don’t fit a naturally chaotic tree trunk.  This time around, because of improved walkmesh, I am able to use the steps and platforms.  The whole system seems much more practical and they actually work.  Obviously, you can’t walk all of the way up because of the engine limitations, but you can make that walk and then change levels.  I’m happy with how they turned out so far.

The Brightblade Cottage

I finally get to show some of the Brightblade Cottage.  I have been messing with the design on this one.  I wanted it to be simple, symmetric, and clean.  Solace… but with a bit of Solamnia.  You can almost see Sturm drilling on the deck… and someday he will.  Maybe you will drill with him.  Things are coming along.  I am starting to get some of the basic pieces built up and so the entire process moves faster then.  Hopefull I’ll get enough done by Easter to throw up a video.  I have found some really great sounds and it has a nice feel to the level.  Enjoy!

A Treetop Merchantile

The Merchant Glofell isn’t the most upstanding man in Solace… But he is a purveyor of many different items… from the mundane to the rare.  Not everything is expensive, but nothing is free.
