[PREFAB] Stillwater Castle - Would you be interested?


Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I made a prefab and I am happy to release it, but only if there is enough interest. So let me know if you're keen with a react or comment :)

For my first prefab it is, of course, a castle. Decked out in cobblestone rock, with a little wooden hideaway out front for those who want to start taking the castle at level 1. Be warned, however, there are a lot of Zs to get through just to take the front garden!

As you travel through the castle, the Zs swarm ever so progressively, so I assume it is quite performance heavy during the takeover. Should smooth out once you've cleared the POI and popped down a sleeping bag (two would be better if you have a friend to play with, but I've done just fine on my own in this castle for 22 days so far).

Once you gain access to the courtyard, you will be confronted by a variety of angry puppies and kittens until you reach the inner castle.

Here, depending on which way you go through, you will have to battle the house staff and a few bikies who have taken up residence.

Following the path down, you will find yourself in a refreshingly retrofitted dungeon, once filled with cages, now conveniently outfitted by the bikies and their little posse of researchers and construction workers. It is true what they say about gangs: once you are in you never get out. Unfortunately for these guys, even death did not relieve them of their gang ties. (Don't worry - none of the workstations actually function. You will need to work for those still).

Last but not least, there is a pathway for those who like to play death from above. Two helipads have been added by our good bikie friends to accommodate their old dreams of a time past. Well, maybe you get to live out their childhood dreams now?

The POI is pretty much play ready. I am just ironing out some of the last kinks. A few missing blocks here, a few modded ones there. Currently the only modded blocks are the angled half blocks, but I think they are already in the game, just not as upgradable ones? Will have to experiment with that and see if I can run the POI unmodded. If I release it, I dont want people to have to download mods they dont want or use just to play in my castle :) More pretty pictures available on request! Latest Alpha 19 compatible, not tested server yet, but that will happen soonish.

Hi Eko

 

I would like to add it to my list of prefabs, I really liked the design and the distribution of things, I hope it has some hidden place.
You must have put in a good amount of time to finish it.

Regards

 

P.S. I do not condition the distribution of the prefab by the fact that people are interested or not, people will realize what a great job you did.

Heyas

 

Sorry ive been absent for a while. But of a holiday break from working on the prefab haha

 

StillWater had some issues with the moat, but the good folks working on the next compo pack have been helping me fix it, as well as some optimisation techniques needed to get it to fit in with the compo pack rules. This of course means the castle should eventually become available as part of the compo pack, and im working on getting it ready for the next release (which might not be until a20).

However, tonight I will be hosting a bit of a LAN with mates, and fully intend to test the castle right to its limit, so it may even become available as a separate download before next compo release. Fingers crossed the testing goes well tonight :)

yeah sorry move to discussions, since it will be available (pending review) in the next CP

 

 

EDIT: if anyone still wants it as a separate download, PM me, otherwise wait for the next CP ;)
