    However, you should change the metal bit on one of the "sphere-holders" to a more naga\highborne-like texture. The arcane sanctum's rusty metal is unfitting. You could also add additional teamcolor by changing the green plates on the main building into teamcolored plates(from the Altar of Depths). Finally, you should change the Stand Work animation to use more fitting particles(blue\teal\cyan), and perhaps add a radiating cyan glow to each of the billboarded spheres during "Stand Work" as well.

    Deolrin: The changes are great, good job. :)
    However, new problem... The glow seems to conflict with the spheres. Maybe move it away a bit so it's not exactly on the same spot as the spheres?


    20:07, 15th Jun 2013
    Deolrin: The orb glows still flicker in-game, for some reason. I don't know how to fix this, honestly, asides from moving them even farther away, or perhaps getting rid of them altogether. Which would be a shame because they look nice.
    The birth effect you gave it is really nice. It works great with the Arcane Sanctum base. Good job. :)

    Deolrin: Changes made, resource approved. Great model, fits for both Naga and Highborne. Good job!

    I reckon these are meant to be constructions for the Pre-Naga elves called Highborn.

    Personally, I'd love to see a little less "Sunken Isles" and more "Elvish" style, sure they're meant to match that style, but I'm pretty sure the reason the Sunken Ruin doodads and constructions have that particular colour pattern has to do with having been under water for a very long time, I might be wrong.

    Personally, I'd love to see some deviations from the Orc structures to make a nice Darkspear and Bloodhoof Tribe alteration. Keep these custom buildings coming.

    Yes, I very much agree with all this, highborne elves built in much the same style as modern night elves today, perhaps with a tiny bit less nature integrated.

    Even though Maiev and her comrades discover the Sunken Ruins of Suramar, which was an ancient elven city, WoW has pretty much retconned all the sealike themes from highborne elves, and now associates it with the naga - not ancient highborne.

    Personally I feel these fit as naga buildings very well, though the night elf build animation pretty much denies that use completely.
    Sadly with the night elven build animation I have no use for this highborne building line. I suggest you either change the build animation to the naga one and call these naga buildings, or rework all the highborne buildings to showcase a more accurate style.

    The Well of Eternity instance in WoW showcases highborne architechture in action. (sorry for the gigantic post)

    I kinda agree.. is there a way to make your building more highborn-ish?

    Moar, even though it's the standard model the re-texture makes it unique.

    this is by far my fav building of you'res iv seen at. while I have little use for you're other buildings this one is a must for murloc/naga raced maps.

    8/10 I think you should add blue hero glows on the orbs or something.

    A good reference for Highborne style of architecture can be found in WoW from Blood elves - they are the most direct descendants of ancient highborne (most direct going by their traditions and life style)

    Highborne often used a light-gray stones (sometimes almost white), used a lot of gold for details to show how fancy their towns were, but also used nature to add a nice touch to those buildings... though that usually depended on what the structure was.

    In WCIII, a highborne looking building could be night elf altar - a good mix of nature, gold and polished stones.
    High Elf Barracks, Arcane Sanctum and Sky-Fury tower are another buildings built in highborne style (though they miss gold details and the nature touch).
    --------
    It was after the sundering that night elves started revering nature and druidic powers and became closely tied to it (as in they could summon spirits; treants would help them, etc. - the only druid at the time before sundering was Malfurion, who was just a disciple at the time). Becoming Night Elves as we know from WC3 also had an impact on their architecture, as they started using more wood and trees and summoned/made grow their buildings from trees; gold was replaced by silver to revere Elune, etc.

    Highborne that survived the Sundering later left night elves and became High Elves and later Blood Elves... but they still build in very similar style to ancient highborne. As the first High Elves were highborne survivors, it makes sense that they would build in very similar manner.

    How do you wrap the texture like that so it fits the model well?

    As much as I understand the reason behind these textures, they don't exactly look Highborne. The problem mainly being that the sunken ruins have been sunken for ages. The stone is withered and brittle, and very much covered in algae. All of which is visible in ways in the textures. The general architecture would probably be similar though (It does share similarities with the modern Night Elven structures).

    A good rule when it comes to the Highborne is that they always strived to keep everything as beautiful as possible.
