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.

    More great work.

    As long as the scale of the brick texture matches, one can construct all sorts of buildings.

    The scale of the bricks might not be exakt :) Maybe have to be more careful when UV-unwrapping.
