gm_hilltown_apartments

This is a small set of apartments completed by me about half a year ago. I made these just as a small project to improve my mapping. Please be aware that I have learned a lot between now and then.

All the rooms should have a light source. They also look quite bare. Otherwise, cant really notice anything else wrong :slight_smile:

I thought that to Mr. Iron, but if you view the images in full there is light sources, just the thumbnails hides that :v:

Yup. Every room has one. It’s just a small, indented ceiling light. Because I have a high sprite, it makes them very difficult to see.

I’d like to think of the empty rooms as a canvas. If there’s one thing I sometimes hate, is pre-done rooms when I sorta wanna put my own stuff in there. It allows for different comic scenes and such as well.

I like the warm lighting :slight_smile: It’s not for realism, it’s a warm and welcoming artistic style and I’m ready to greet it with open arms and a wide smile.

So where’s the gun shop?

Excellent map. I like the warm feeling your interior of your buildings have;Although I would prefer a better less-gloomy sky to match the theme of your map.Fix up the empty entrance of your apartment street. But overall it’s a well done map :).

Pyscologyically, a harsh moody exterior enviroment creates a much warmer interior. Take this for an example; When you are inside, what feels more ‘warm’: You in your bed with a cup of hot chocolate looking outside where its stormy and horrible. Or, you sat in a chair when it’s sunny and blue outside? :slight_smile: Cheers for your feedback though.

Ah, i see your point :).
