    If people really want a Draenei set, then get me good a 256x256 or 512x512 texture that "has everything" (doors, walls, team colored windows, decorations, etc). I'm not good with textures and WoW textures just won't do because they're made for models with very fine meshes.

    Maybe you can use textures from that wc3c Draenei building set?

    Skin

    Author's Notes:
    • Don't forget to remove "war3mapImported\" from the path of the skin after importing.
    • The Alternate animations of the Arcane Well is meant to be used with the Replenish Mana and Life ability of the Moon Wells. Import the "ArcaneWellTarget". Afterwhich, go to the "Art - Effect" under the Replenish Mana and Life ability and replace all of the paths with the imported model.
    • Pack is here.

    I did. Splats aren't really part of the model so just ignore it.

    EDIT: I don't want to any particular banner so people can use the buildings for different Draenei factions maybe even for non-Draenei ones.

    Amazing skin. The water could be tinted purplish, though.

    Ooh you just love to use the Barracks as a Forge, don't you? :p

    Call me crazy, but those remind me of Katy Perry's song, Dark Horse. lol

    I must say, there are a few races I wish you'd make. The lack of well made Draenei units are apparent, but I am really looking forward to this pack.

    You are by far, my favorite model maker, I - for the lack of a better word - cherish your models. Can't wait to see the rest.

    PS. I wonder, would an Arcane Sanctuary and Arcane Vault with the "orbs" replaced with crystals look good? I think they just might.

    Oh boy. Wrote up a big collection of ideas you could pull from as well as took the liberty of taking a bunch of screenshots for reference:

    (Image Heavy)

    Farm-type building:

    The most common Draenei building you'll see is this:

    [​IMG]

    They're literally everywhere. It's the standard Draenei multi-purpose home.


    Barracks-type building:

    Every Draenei town has a barracks-like temple like these:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I would suggest using your Arcane Temple model and adding a second building in the middle "courtyard". From the inside of these buildings, there's an initial small building that connects to another larger room in the back seperated by a domed courtyard. If not, a highly modified High Elven Barracks could work, too, but barely.

    [​IMG]


    Tower building:

    Draenei towers look like this in-game:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    You're best off leaving it as a single tower like an Orc one instead of upgradeable like the Human towers.


    Altar:

    Draenei use tombs for fallen heroes. The Gilnean Library would be a good start.

    [​IMG]

    Tombs are usually adorned on both sides with statues like these.

    [​IMG]


    Caster building:

    Every large Draenei town has a temple in it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I would highly suggest your Arcane Sanctuary model as a start because the general shape you made it strongly resembles the temples of the Draenei.


    Aviary-type building:

    The Draenei use faerie dragons as flying mounts. They're domesticated in aviaries.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The faerie dragons of Draenor are pretty large compared to Azeroth's. I would suggest using the Arcane Academy without its floating crystals and a shorter spire.


    Workshop-type building:

    The Draenei use large observatories like the one here:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Best suggestion I could give for this category.


    Goldmine:

    I wouldn't suggest using an entangled style mine for the Draenei.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They have a thing for mining. Especially crystals not gold. It's all they mine all over Draenor.


    Shipyard:

    Your Arcane Shipyard is a perfect shape to work off it just needs some Draenei flair.


    Improvements -


    Metropolis: For Tier 3, I would add some sort of purple force field around the building coming from the crystals. The important buildings of the Draenei all seem to have it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Nah, there is no purple water where Draenei come from.

    [​IMG]

    However, Ujimasa, you can make the water a little more darker blue.

    As of this post, the water in the Metropolis now changes with tileset.

    To be totally honest: meh.

    The Shipyards dont even look remotely Draenic.

    Like I said previously, your readily made Arcane Shipyard (Night Elf) already looks Draenic it just needs a few adjustments and a retexture.

    The Mage Tower on the other hand... :zip:

    If you truly want to capture the essence of this highly-requested theme, it should be correctly. You can't take the easy way out on this one; You'll need to put a little more creative effort like you did with themes such as Arcane/Gilnean/Bandit/etc, where you did more than just simply retexture the buildings. Personally I already added a long list (with pictures:grin:) of suggestions that best fit each building in the techtree logically and aesthetically.

    Just come creative criticism plus my two cents. :cute:

    Don't worry, I'm just putting out the easy ones first. I'm also planning on putting out an extensive set so people can choose which ones they want.
