Description:

For a long time I've been trying to figure out how to make it possible to build variated medieval cities without having to build each building by hand. I came up with a system of modular design where each part is it's own object. This can for example be a window. This window also contains multiple parts, like frame, window and boards. Then I can export the object into Unity3D and hide various parts of the object as I want. I can also easily change the material of one part without having to build new objects for it.

It's a bit difficult to explain it and if I ever get around to it, I might make a tutorial.

This might not be a very good or efficient way, but it's one way to do it.

I'll upload the files here if anyone wants to use them.

    This might go well with MIcrovellum's Fluid Designer.

    That could be interesting.

    Reminds me of some of the buildings in Morrowind :)

    Long since I played that, but I did look at many games including Skyrim to try and find a way to do this. :)

    This design is particularly good.

    I live in a town with a High Street full of old houses like this converted into shops.

    Central Europe somewhere? I love those old buildings there. Celle in Germany has lots of them. Very beautiful!

    Ah, yeah sure they have a lot there too! We have some in Sweden too, but not that many that I know of at least.
