That has quite an ugly visible seam on it.

Yes, I never looked into whether that's the texture I'm using or Nielsen's mapping of the replace texture.
Those will do nicely I think.
And someone already had the idea to make them bulge

Rob and I sent the full church base to a couple of testers yesterday. Huzzah!
After a little long time, i returned to dromed and work with the second part of "the DarkStone Gem" campaign...
Wow Max, that looks great ! You have a natural gift for a dark flavor.
And here are a couple of the front side variants. First, a plain, undecorated sheath, and second, one with decorative bosses. This last also exhibits a less flashy guard and hilt, more suitable to someone who wishes to remain unnoticed in shadows.

Is that a collector tower at the top of the image? Besides that I see round rooms with lots of tunnels and archways. Good luck with the textures
Definitely a CollTower.
Signs you are dromeding too much, 353.
Set_grid makes the texturing easier in a lot of cases - for example the 8-sided rooms can be texture aligned all the way around without seams. The rotated archways can become a problem, but I think the room brushing will become even more of a problem (I fear that the texturing will be quite easy in comparison).Originally Posted by R Soul
That library book is 15 years overdue!
No. That one is on permanent loan. This one is overdue!
Edit: And don't get after me about their system for keeping track of books in circulation. I don't understand it either. I fell asleep halfway through the 2nd page!
Edit the 2nd: But I do learn such fascinating stuff from Keeper libraries that I never would learn anywhere else I'm sure ...

Those new ledgers look nice, though I don't think you should use the @ symbol.
I'm missing your point of the underline, though. The system is real. The spelling is correct.
Edit: and the Demco System is real too.One of the most important product advancements ever developed here at Gaylord was the Model C Book Charger. Introduced in 1930, it was the first mechanized circulation control system. Libraries around the world relied on the Gaylord Book Charger to facilitate accurate and economic control of their book circulation.
The company profile includes statistics on the DEMCO system. A brief history of DEMCO may also be found along with highlights of the cooperative during the previous year.

Gaylord also manufactures rather good protective sleeves for books. I own a few second-hand books that have them, and they are perfect even though the books themselves are 50-60 years old now.
A short little update on my work:
about halfway to the end of the building. I wish there were higher brush limits. I'm going to have to cut some parts of the mission out. I haven't even yet started detailing the second part of the level and I'm already anxious about using up all the area brushes. Although it is also a relief to have the end in sight. Also, without any textures and any objects or characters I'm up to about 700 polygons. Not sure if that is bad or good. It's a rooftop mission, and I'm trying hard to keep the polys in check but also produce some decent views.
Are you sure you're not some kind of objectmanufacturing machine? You get them out faster than I can comment
I have some great reading in front of me:
The left one is a sort of thesaurus over urban designs starting with the Middle Ages and the renaissance, and all the way to the early twentieth century. The right one contains mostly drawings of building details like buttresses, chimneys, arches, gardens, stairs, dormers, fountains etc... etc... I can fully recommend both of them.
These books are both from Dover Publications, by the way.
Left book: The American Vitruvius An Architect's Handbook of Urban Design by Werner Hegemann and Elbert Peets
Right book: Pictorial Encyclopedia of Historic Architectural Plans, Details and Elements by John Theodore Haneman
