ooh, I love it! To me it looks more like an icon than a window; probably related to how strong the texture is. Still, I'm sure that it will look lovely either above or in front of the altar, or as in inset in the tower... Purple is an interesting choice for the bunny, since neither existing faction really uses purple and it's quite a contrast to the natural greens which usually decorate the "neutral" constructions (bunny statues, Black Cord crypts and so on)
The golden brazier is certainly regal-looking, although I wonder how it would look with blue accents instead of red? I guess it comes down to who is using it; Ascendancy towns might prefer the blue, but RC would prefer the red. I think that increasing the amount of accent colour might work well though -- either adding a third dot in the middle so it looks like the brazier is encrusted/studded with rubies like an opulent crown, or maybe just have a solid line of red inside that "inset" area (so connect the two dots together) to make it look like an inlaid design? Simply having the tiny spot of colour within the recess doesn't make it "pop"; I think it's the right colour (any brighter and it might look odd) but the eye is drawn both ways at once and that kind of dilutes the effect.
I've been trying out cathedral shapes, and I'm thinking that whatever I come up with will require mostly slab construction -- those larger wall sections simply aren't flexible enough. That said, I do have a plan in mind: I want to build in such a way that the footprint, when viewed from above, looks like a rabbit lying on its back gazing at the clouds. So, the two front belltowers will be the feet, the main hall will be the belly area, with a large altar room at the back as the head. The ears will probably be low buildings designed to look like dormitories for the monks; and the whole place will be surrounded by a garden. So, from Hearthling view the cathedral should look like a cathedral, it's only the great Ancestor Bunnies looking down from above who will see its true form.
With all of that said though, I'm torn between using smaller windows and simply building really large stained glass windows block-by-block. Do you reckon it would be tough to do transparent slabs or blocks to build with? I really need to get started with modding so I can do this kind of thing for myself, but I'm guessing that slabs wouldn't play nicely with transparency... so what I'm thinking of would probabl require decorative items that simply look like a transparent/glass cube.
Anyway, I'm going to spend another three hours rolling the perfect citizens and map to try out the next attempt for the Bunny Cathedral... I've done a few attempts already, but I'm dead-set on the idea of doing it as an "illustrated diary" with screenshots to document the story of its construction. The last couple of times, I was set on building a waterfall to have in the background of the cathedral, and mishaps with that led to the whole scene being ruined (of course I didn't save before trying to open the flow, so the auto-save was taken after I'd released the water and before it flooded everywhere... it turns out that even insta-building a dam won't stop water once it's gone into that waterfall animation).
Anyway, hopefully next time I talk about this it will be in my own thread about the cathedral so I can keep my ramblings out of this one, and focus on the art critique
