Modular Palace

Postby Sciriez » Wed Feb 03, 2016 4:35 am

Hi All!

First off, I'll address what's on everyone's minds - WHERE IS THE CL14 FFS?!??!

Well, it's done and in game, but unfortunately (or fortunately in the long run) so is about half of a new GUI, and it doesn't play nice with the old GUI, so we can't create a new build until the GUI is complete. Won't be too long now, though. Apologies for the wait.

BUT, back to the topic here, Modular Palaces. These are designed to be serious "LOOK AT ME, I'M RICH" pieces, that any player can build ad nauseum to show off. To ensure they're special, can be seen from afar AND actually stay together on any terrain, I'm going to try and make them floating platforms that glow similarly to the ship landing dock. This should make it clear from any angle that you have cash to burn :D

So, at first I'm going to put together 3 different pieces that you can swap and change as you like, building great expanses of (if you're just impossibly rich) or using as you wish. I've got a few concepts coming together, but I have three that are almost there, so I thought I'd show you what they look like. If anyone likes the direction of any of these, or specifically does NOT like the direction of one, please let me know and I can start working up one of the others.

Centre piece with beam allowing the piece to levitate.

Jewel-like wing.

Temple-like structure.

All three together.

As you can see, there isn't a new beam for each part, just for the main piece, so they will need to be connected to each-other, but from there you can build on (and on and on and on and on...)

So...Thoughts? Also note there are two different designs for the platforms, I'm undecided about each of these or whether the centre piece should be different, so let me know what you think. These palaces will require gems (if I remember correctly) so I'm going to include lots of colour in these, and the platforms themselves will be ringed with these little jewel-like points, which I'll try to make visible from space.

I'm going to leave these until the end of the week and get started on another project that I should've done this week, so I'll collect feedback here and get started on this again in a couple of days. Can't wait to hear what you think!

Outstanding! I prefer Aztec/Mayan temples but these will look splendid floating above islands or mountains. Having some of the structures with different decorative roofs such as the Russian onion tops.

Thank you much!

Will each module bring planetary bonuses?

Or will the solely be for status?

Temple is cool. The tepee looking will depend on the coloring. How big are these? Are they the size of the landing dock? Will they count as 1 building or more?

I'd still prefer to have a Sodom Grand Casino and Resort instead of a palace.... but these are ok i guess....

Looks cool, but I don't really like the idea of this game taking the path of 'be rich to win'.

i think its an odd concept and generally like a bit of function mixed in.

I'm leaning towards the jewel design. Great designs all, though George. Use them all?


As ram and donga have already mentioned, will there be some purpose other than a status symbol? Will players to spend vast amounts of creds/mats on a structure that has no functionality?

palaces rarely serve anything but a money pit and makes u look cool...envy of all
(note i believe original purpose was as a money and resource pit, burn up some of that extra mats, maybe a aluminum palace ;p
guess if you wanted to add use to it it could be considered your central command area.. so u could see..senator bills, vote, admin guys...i don't know.

anyhow wonder how try will look floating above the water :)...got to get it just right :) to deep and i will get wet paws too high and can't jump in for a swim. :lol:

anyhow very nice, personally i am a plant person so go trees go.

don't believe there is any rush as far as i know no decent gem planet has been found let alone developed.
