Village square

Submitted by MassiveMaster
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Description:
This is a village square. The people of the village meet here to hold markets, festivals, executions or other important events. Also the main village well is placed on the square providing the people with water for washing, drinking, blowing out fires, etc. The village square is bounded by loosely build wooden fences and also serves to temporary store stuff like boxes and barrels.

The model only uses ingame textures and has a portrait camera, team colour and the standard animations (Stand/Birth/Death/Decay). It is kind of inspired by the markt place of the 'Anno' series.

Updates:
-Added a team coloured roof to the well
-Resized the well (Smaller in hight but broader)
-Added some more team-coloured stuff to the square (Carpet and roof tiles)
-Added GeosetAnims for the decay animation
-Added ground platform
-Merged objects together to reduce file size (about 10%)


Pls give credits, if you use it in your map.

26th August General Frank: Changes are made. The model is quite nice performs well ingame. You should still add some kind of solid ground to it.

    I'd say this is pretty useful; one use I can see for it is as a control point in a 'capture the flag' scenario, another use is simply as part of a village; for example in an RPG or altered melee map.

    I'd suggest you put some extra detail in the well however; make it from scratch perhaps. It is rather simple at this point and doesn't looks too much like the 'main' well. Just another tiny well. :p

    @All: Thx for the comments.:thumbs_up:

    Yea, I'll remake the well and will also add some extra team coloured stuff to the square. But as I'll be away for about a week and probably won't have internet access I won't be able to update the model until I return.

    Probably because the model wasn't good enough/too simple to be accaptable under the harsh judgement of General Frank^^

    Did you really look at the model itself or just the screenshot? The old screenshot is still showing up atm instead of the new (don't know why), so...

    Maybe make the whole thing stand on a platform, and the well on a slightly raised platform(or rather; a slightly raised platform around the well, with a(not visible) hole in the middle of it, for the well).

    That's exactly the point for the free space! I made it so that you still can place your own trade markets or other stuff on the square and that you are able to place them there temporarly as these trade markets will be own models. For my map for example, I used a pathing map with buildable space on the square so that trader units can build trader stands on the village square. And there are enough nice trader stand models here on the Hive that you can use (like this).


    A very nice idea! But when I add such a platform it must have a dirt ground texture so that it still looks like a village square and not a town square. I plan also on doing a town square (as an upgrade to this building) what definitively will have a stone textured platform.

    Why does it remind me of Age of Empires town center building?
