This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
These Domes are now RECOLOURABLE, thanks to dewshine! Below I have posted the dewshine package, which is the same as my original, but with colour options, which are really nice. Please give thanks to dewshine, everyone. Any further recolours may be posted in the beta recolour section here at MTS2.

Brasstex

This isn't the whole lot, most of which is just Maxis objects anyway. What you get here is 2 domes, a stucco type wall, and two floors, a ceramic tile and a mosaic. (it's all packed together in the one .rar)

Yes, I'm designing an exact, or close to exact, replica of that castle in the harry potter movie. I've got about 12 good pictures of a scale model that was built by a professional miniature maker, so it should be pretty close. Of course, I won't be uploading the castle, but I WILL give you all of the custom parts I make. (which should include a few custom roof pieces)

komischkatze: That lot looks FANTASTIC!

Brasstex, do you want me to turn into Owaizoo, or can you promise me that you will let me download that castle?

Well yes, but after all of that, owaizoo was able to build quite a stunning lot of his own. Perhaps I will give instructions on how to put it together when I upload the Hogwarts(spelled?) but I can't share lots, because they only work for people with the EP installed so I'm boycotting that function.

I have the EP! Instructions would be good but I ddoubt if we're following your pcitures and you're following a model then we'll get it wrong.. Oh well.. I still can't wait for the pieces!

Well, I have news. The domes are recolorable!. Or at least they produce valid recolor packages. Golden domes anyone?
Field Researcher
#57 Old 30th Mar 2005 at 6:59 PM
All of these Arabian homes you guys and gals have done look great! Owaizoo, try eating less Easter candy before posting next time - the sugar makes you hyper! LOL! You did a great job on your Arabian home! I can't wait to get home from work tonight and get these domes downloaded. And YES Dewshine, I know at least I would like to have them in gold too. Put some up for us.

Thanks to all you great creative people! My teenager is trying her hand at using that 3-D program to build meshes for her game and after watching her do that, I don't think I would have the patience for it. Keep up the good work!

TESTED: well, dewshine, the recolour works fine, but there's no catalogue thumbnails now. That's kind of important, so I'm going to try to figure out why they aren't showing up. Let me know if you can tell my why, otherwise I'll figure it out, but I'm holding off on putting these at the top till I have thumbnails.

Brasstex


Hey Great work dewshine! I'm going to download these recolour packages, test them, and then provided they work for me, I'm going to put them at the top of the thread.

Yep I know. But this is the beta forum, so please look at what I did and see if you can figure it out. If you can then tell me how you did it so that I can add that step of the rest of what I'm doing!....I can't seem to find info that indicates that this is a problem except for something Dr. Pixel was working on and he never posted how he fixed it. I'm sure I'm missing something very simple.

Thanks for the compliments Owai and Brass. It's all due to those fab domes of course, Brass.

Owai, no I don't have it up for download but I'll make it available to you if you like. Let me finish up the interior walls first though. Furnished or unfurnished?

Woot! I got the problem with the missing thumbnails fixed!. Lookie! *dances around the room* And I didn't loose the recolor options either. (the old brown color won't work unless I remake it but the texture isn't the best anyhow). Here is a pic of the updated progress. I'll get the small dome fixed and go back to the medieval fair...Do you want the castle roof pieces enabled too, Brassex?

dewshine! You are getting very good at this! You have my blessing to do the castle roof pieces if you want, I like black, but I'm sure that others would like white, red, green, blue...

Thanks alot!

You are so welcome! I would love to do a haunted castle or victorian so recolors of the castle pieces are a must,

Here are the fixed domes, thumbnails and all, with 3 recolors each. I still can't get the gold right, but that may be due to the fact that the material definition needs to be altered to be shiny...something I'm not ready to tackle yet. But I did remake the brown, and came up with a copperish tone in addition to a streaked version of your sandstone color. ...enough rambling, here you go...

The files are in the first post!

Motoki, there are 3 that I made included in the rar. I have done a test of a metallic gold (using the ingame reflections) and it works. I'm going to make a bunch of metallic domes today. There was a request for a mosic covered dome too, and I am searching for the perfect texture for it. Once I find it I'll put it up. Would anyone like the castle roof pieces in metal too? I think I'm gonna do them also. I'm thinking, Gunmetal blue, silver, gold, copper, white, black, ... LOL

Here is the first teaser picture of the gold metallic roof recolors and my attempt at a mosaic one.

They will be posted in the recolor forum. recolors here
