[R118] Terraces!


#1

Edit: Should we fix this bug? :wink:


#2

Fix it? :cry:

Be honest @sdee, a hanging / cliff-side town in the full game would be awesome :smiley: .


#3

@sdee I agree with @Teleros, hanging towns would be awesome. Maybe if part of a house was hanging off the corner column would extend downward to support the house?


#4

i’m building this (from the Hotel Caruso in Italy)… :smile:


#5

Honestly, I would love to see screenshots of your hanging, cliff-side towns. :slight_smile:


#6

It’s hard without things like bridges and ladders down, but here’s some “concept art”, if you will…

It’s probably a niche thing, and you might want some extra physics code to handle this stuff*, but it does look pretty cool :slight_smile: .


*This also applies to the vanilla game though. Find a small hill etc, build on it, use a geomancer to collapse the hill, then laugh at goblins - or have a levitating house, or even a whole village supported on a 1x1 nerd pole stalk.

That top one is epic. Like: “not only am I going to build a building on this cliff, I’m going to make it pretty, too.”


#8

the very, very humble beginnings of TerraceVille…

tried a few “treehouse” designs that failed… I noticed my workers seem to forget about building if they get hunger pangs midway through construction… I have to add something new to the design to reengage their interest…


#9

i think the bug should be fixed, then turned into a feature :3


#10

so lets call the bug a feature then fix a couple things to it.
but i say yes to make a feature so the sandbox sim can become a reality


#11

this could actually be a good start into rice farming perhaps?


#12

Welcome to Plank. well planks and ladders. We had adventures in building skyhigh and drama and a rescue. Then with all that my workers and carpenters got so content the only thing they would do is go cut trees and pick up supplies. (it’s about 7 minutes long total.


#13

thats some cool stuff :thumbsup:

I vote for leaving it in the game.


#14

We watched this together on Chris’s monitor and found ourselves cheering out loud by the end. :slight_smile:


#15

I … I think I love you a little bit. Is that okay?

The giant ladder in the sky :’( so so beautiful.


#16

turn this bug into a feature!!! would be epic!


#17

My try to abuse the bu… feature.

Apartment in construction. Hard to finish roofs.

Cat flap!


#18

Whoa! How did you build the walls on top of the projected terraces?


#19

By having a floor underneath it which is a little bit larger :smile:


#20

I would love to see a screen/video of your dragging the wall out, if you have one. We disabled the drawing of walls over things that weren’t “terrain” but evidently there is a cat door somewhere in our logic.
