Hmm..so I made some walls... (and could really use feedback)
There are 3 panels meant to be used together and tiled:
I made them to go with this: (the ivy)
Alone- the walls are okay. They're not meant to be used alone though. I made them to go with the ivy since overlays don't play well with the ivy.
There are a couple of spots I know need worked on a little bit -any advice? I'm really not that good at walls..but like I said, overlays don't play well with the ivy!
P.S. The walls are supposed to look a bit eroded in places along with being mossy. At least I hope that's what it looks like.
Oh! I forgot! Any ideas on what else could be offered along with the walls and the ivy? Once I get these walls just right I plan on doing 2 more sets. The ivy itself has 9 pieces. So maybe there doesn't need to be anything else? (Maybe a floor..)
Thanks! I really worked on the ivy- even started over on some of it when I thought it was done. (I tend to do that, which is usually a good thing, lol.) Agreed about the M&G ivy. There's only 1 of them I really like, the smaller upper one. Flowery versions were already planned. Those are for....after.
I got a reply to this thread in a PM:
Hi , I'm replying here (cose I never made a reply to an artist and dunno if it will be well taken) . I did a google search , and just put Ivy Wall and got lot of interesting pictures . So feedback ?(Yes I read to be nice , respectful and honest and helpful if I canlol) Phew...here goes : -for the wall (1st picture) : The green patch ?(moss) . I feel like the moss (big patch) should go from down to up . Because a wall is stuck in the ground , so moss....like creep along a wall where there is humidity (?) and go up . Unless the wall is very much naked , then the moss patch can be everywhere and at every end . But again , i'm no expert... But when I was a kid..I saw wall like that with Ivy (which were a beautiful yet sinister side) . Right now the big patch are up..making it like humidity strike from above and going down . Like this - http://www.geog.ox.ac.uk/research/l...e/ivy/ivy01.png - 2nd Picture : I love Ivy! Just make me wanna jump in there and let it tickle my nose lol But....I wish you put branche (I think they are called) . Cose you have many kind of Ivy And the one I recall are like this one (it has less green..but lot of branche) Like this - http://rlv.zcache.com/ivy_wall_card...59zvhz2_400.jpg And last Ivy for different season ? Like this :http://www.ji-lee.com/blog/wp-conte...10/ivy_wall.jpg Haha but I love your design plz don't take my above answer as something bad . I just though give my 2$ and hopefully boost your imagination bit more and I'm also sorry if you don't get/hard to understand me . My brain is malfunctioning today .
So - Bodhie: Don't be afraid to reply in a thread. That's what the Creator Feedback forum is for- creator's ask and get answers/help/advice. And you did have some good advice. I agree with that one wall and will change it to the moss is going down- it'll probably look better.
The branch idea? Absolutely good idea. I've been looking for textures today so I'll see what I can find.
The different seasons? Already done for this ivy as recolors. I just didn't show them. So thanks for replying and don't be afraid to reply again. And- one more thing, lol- you weren't hard to understand at all.
wait so the ivy is an overlay separate from the wall? Will it act like the ivy in buy catalog (go down with the walls) because if so and it's one tile YES YES YES. I like the wall, reminds me of old england buildings like that paired with the ivy. Not to keen about it being paneled though as with my experience with panels is that unless you plan it just right corner pieces don't meet up in the right order and then everything looks off. My other concern is that when doing a second floor is there a way to match up the seams? because panel two? (the one with the clump of moss at the top) will look unfinished and cut off if not covered with Ivy. Are the panels one tile or more? Kind of hard to tell from the pic.
The ivy! I love that ivy if I have to say so myself. Yes, it's separate from the wall. It was all cloned from a curtain, is 1 tile and will go down with the walls. It can even be seen from the inside (it bugs me when you can't see the reverse side of things).
The walls. Believe it or not, the corners line up pretty well. It's not 100% match but it's very close. I hadn't thought of what using them on another story would look like. That would be because one of the ivy pieces should be high enough to slightly cover it. Looking at the screenshot I can see where it would match up and where it wouldn't. They're still being worked on so I'll check that out. Oh yeah...they're 1 tile. Thanks for the input!
I'm really excited to see this now lol. Wall recolors would be nice as well, but that should probably be left up to the downloader to do because that moss is going to be a pain to map around to get the wall color right and not affect the moss. I can totally see all my community lots using that wall already.
