Gilneas Buildings

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Description:
I actually have an old pack for Gilneas but I decided to upload this pack separately instead of replacing the old one. The reason for this is because I am planning to repurpose and rename that one as Westfall or Alterac depending on the possible art style that will be applied to it.

Here is a new building set for the Kingdom of Gilneas inspired by WoW structures and using Gilneas Building skin of Cloudwolf.

Note/s:
  • Download the skin mentioned above and just do the usual importation procedure. No need to replace any skin within the game.
  • Credits to the owner of the skin
  • Also credits to the person who suggested the use of the skin
  • The Manor model does not have any birth animation.

Updates:
  • Edited the Wizard Tower. The Tower itself is moved to the center and removed Arcane Sanctum Geosets.
  • Edited the Keep. Replaced the Clock Tower roof.
  • Replaced the Keep Icons.
  • Added bonus model; "Cathedral" with icons.
  • Added bonus model; "Manor" with icons.
  • Added bonus model; "Shipyard" with icons.



All models passed Sanity Check.

A very nice variation/adaptation of the human buildings with a very unique twist. Great use of that custom texture. Good job.

Wow, those buildings are outstanding! All of your building packs are so nice and useful!

My only criticism toward this one would be about the lack of differences between the Town Hall and the Keep, which look too much alike.

Apart from that, top notch incredible work, thanks so much man.

I agree, Love the pack but maybe the town hall should be a single story or something to differentiate it a bit more.

Another incredible & cohesive building pack, perfect for a custom Gilneas faction. You do us faction-designers an incredible service (even if I start to feel like they are too cohesive... Like, using the same texture for every roof/structure is almost too samey.). Thank you.

Thanks!

I guess the use of same texture is because of my personal preference for uniformity lol. I just like them if they strictly follow the same theme though I recently noticed it as well after making this pack because before I don't really pay much attention to it. But sure enough I will try to add variation for the next pack or for additional models in this pack and the other bundles that I have.

Yeah I mean like I & others have said, cohesion is super important! And I'm very glad you've managed to work so hard at it.

But at the same time, if you line up all the standard buildings of each faction, I think you'll find they manage a sense of Cohesion without necessarily leaning on Uniformity (as I worry your building packs exhibit). And honestly I'm no artist, I don't know how they do it. But I know it's possible, and would take your already-excellent & useful building packs to the absolute top-tier level. : )

Manor model is bugged can't click on it in-game.
Just tested it in my game and it seems to be working just fine. Try to download it again to get the latest updated version and then replace the old model file in your map. If it still fails to work maybe the reason is the high poly of the model or some other issues that I may not be capable of addressing.

thanks for returning on short notice, well tested it out a bit and it seems the bug happens when you upgrade a building to the manor building. Otherwise it works perfectly fine, since it happens after you upgrade the building don't know if its actually a problem on your side or not.

in my case the game also crashes or stops sometimes whenever I have faulty triggers or something about the unit is wrong like the dependencies or etc. Try to check them but if the problem is the model itself please do inform me. Thanks!

Oh no this one here has no trigger tied to it, its like scout tower that upgrades to watch tower, its a town hall that can be upgraded into this model.

The Mage Tower's base seems to be too low as it tends to clip through the floor a lot of the times I place it:

Other than that, a great collection of buildings and an easy 5/5. Cheers!
Set the Pitch angle and roll angle to zero "0"

The design is intentional since I dont like tilted buildings in game.

Notify me if that solves your problem.

Just make sure that pitch and roll angles are set to 0 and set height and minimum height maybe to 10 or 20. That should work.

Thanks to you both, pitch and roll angle were already at 0 but setting height to 25 and minimum height to 20 is mitigating the issue. The clipping is still visible on some uneven terrain (the torches at the front of the Barracks are also affected) but now it's mostly fine, to be fair the actual issue could be the map Devil's Cauldron, there's barely any flat terrain there for some reason. :xxd:
