Better we dont even start to discuss which shape the Table should have.
Instead all who care prefabbing feel welcome and participate.

But please even if it is a "regulars' table" thread, try to stay so far as possible at the topic.

BTW:
How to make so nice large Screenshots
* Start Game via Steam
* Press F12 ingame
* (Optional if you want to edit the Picture you can do that now by editing Picture on your HDD)
* Upload to steam
* Go to Steam Profile -> Screenshots -> Desired Screenshot -> Largest version and copy the Pictureadress should look like
https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/874122843878950150/7A667621726BA2F5F19AF7D9750A28714BEFB356/
* Add around it
* Looks now so

and in the forum you have a nice large picture user can see as full picture by rightclick and "see full picture" or "Show Picture" or whatever

So what do you think

Its [WIP]
A German Farm (2nd version)
Hop or top ?

Hey, nice thread!
I am working on a castle atm...will post/replace with a better picture once in game weather is nicer and I have a bit more of it done:

The farm looks good - is the roof texture old wood?

Royal Deluxe
10-31-2017, 05:57 PM
Until now its normal wood.
After posting the picture i saw that i made the entrance in the east and not in the south, so i deleted a huge part of the prefab and redo it as planned.

The castle , what is the aim, a playerbase or a POI prefab ?
(sadly the Pic is blurry,hard to see the blocktypes)
But so or so, it looks good
Now you need a Zombie Vampire

Horst
10-31-2017, 06:16 PM
Have you tried a metal texture for the roof or is that too repetitive?

I would make a better pic but its always raining on guppys server^^
I am rebuilding a RL castle just because I wanted to try if it is doable - so I guess it won't work as playerbase.

Thanks! Yes, Guppy told me. That's how I got the idea of trying to build a RL castle in the game...just wanted to see how the building style would look and as it looks so nice I decided to build the whole thing^^

Redone it all again, this time i started by making a clean inner yard with Walls and a roof.
So i have a Template for different other ideas (Nice Romanian way to build)
But i needed some steel for the SI

https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/874122921369494831/21DE7F66EB203399EB5E05D9D2CE41AB9768E3C7/

And because i like it really here the
DOWNLOAD
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B07NGnx61IyXOFBiYnU1YnN2TTg

The SI is really reliable, BUT if a Pillar is destroyed you have a collapse, so maybe better add some additional Pillars before you let Zombies attack it.

Btw the Ground under the first layer is 73: Gravel with coal
Use Pilles editor to change it to Terrain filler. (Terrain filler is bad to use in Hals empty world, because of this i edit this allways as last)

Where is this table you mention in the thread title?

Are you thinking of doing something like this?
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oGxXK2a3LeeMGG50yGKfAczIpodthTIMgOFbUCrJmEU/edit#gid=0

If one of you wants to run this, prefab builders can request editing rights and enter their prefabs while eveyone else can only view.

Royal Deluxe

Actually i tried to make a architect joke as i spoke about the shape of the Table^^
Sadly the Translation of "Stammtisch" (https://www.dict.cc/?s=stammtisch) looks not so clear

But. If there is interest i would help to make such a "Prefab table" but maybe wait until A18 or A19 when it is (more or less) clear that there is no change in the game that would force us to repair them or make them from Scratch.

Now i start to add the the Farm inside the Atrium

Stupid question, but how do TFP convert the vanilla prefabs - I can't imagine they redo them all by hand. If they make some sort of converter they might just share it with us prefabers...

Smalltalk about prefabs.

Most topics about prefab are Mod releases, for me it feels wrong to hijack them.
And (at least i) some people dont want to clutter their release threads with WIP Chatter

Anyone a idea what i place on the "Defensewalk" ?
I would have said Hay, but i fear for the SI if i place so many Blocks

Now i consider a huge amount of Bedrolls, like survivors would have placed after searching protection on such a "Safe" Farm

Well all the stuff you would expect if survivors camped there...bedrolls, tables, chairs (in guard positions maybe one on the roof), bags, fireplaces, torches/burning barrels, cooking pots, maybe an ammo box, foodstore boxes, birdsnests on the roof...
...maybe an improvised radio instalation with a fusebox and sideways catwalkrails...

Painting the walls is still ahead of me, as well as a ton of details. The original I modelled it from is made of yellow/brown-ish sandstone (http://static.panoramio.com/photos/large/27699234.jpg) - any ideas for paint?

Flagstone is more a decoration or bathroom thing...haven't seen a single castle with stones like that. I will probably go with one of the two yello block colours.
Red bricks just scream state of Teutonic Order / eastern prussia, and thats not what I was going for^^

Royal Deluxe
11-02-2017, 03:32 PM
hmm looked the first time, was never aware that flagstone is finally only a surface.
Thought i was like cobblestone. But Cobblestone is so ugly. (in the game)

Next to your Template i think would be
brick Painted or
concrete Blocks

No idea how that looks on a large scale.
Concrete blocks look repeating

I think the third none-brick one (from left) is closest to the original (https://i0.wp.com/gobamberg.de/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Altenburg-Bamberg-8.jpg?fit=533%2C800&ssl=1)...so I'll probably mainly go with that and mix in other textures in some wall pieces...

Got your walkway filled with stuff?

Well it is supposed to be a DC-2 ... but if you put in a third engine and change the texture it might easily pass as a Ju-52 ^^

Royal Deluxe
11-02-2017, 07:21 PM
It looks a way better as i imagined it.
So maybe i add it later and have both versions.
The problem is that i can allready see players that see such technical "improvisations" as bad for their immersion.

You could take wedges and wedgetips as a nose leading to a third engine in the center (where the red bit is), paint the wedges in the dark black colours and cover the gaps with exhaust pipes...so you'ld get a DC-2/Ju52 crossover...might try that myself^^

:D Thx
For some reason MM went with flagstone as a wall texture...I don't quite understand why this seems to be such a popular idea. There are dozens of castles in the region I live in - none of which uses non-standardized stones...all more or less brick shaped - I have never seen anything medieval anywhere that comes close to flagstone...maybe mycenae - but thats at least 2000 years too old for something medieval.

You can use the editor to get diagonal rotations for all blocks (rotations 24, 25, 26, 27) (may cause texture bugs):
