    Art Gallery (by Top Minder and Pille)

    We proudly present our first collaborative project - The Art Gallery. Top Minder and I have been working on the prefab over the last few weeks trying to create a building that is stylistically indistinguishable from those of the vanilla game! ;-)



    Download (A16 + A17):

    DOWNLOAD LINK



    Top Minder's Preview Videos (A17):

    Spoiler: 

    Part 1 - Prefab Walkaround








    Hints:

    * The outside of the prefab looks much better if the 'Reflection Quality' in the video settings is set to 'Low' or 'High'
    * Medium difficulty level / sleeper volumes



    Features:

    * Two floors + roof full of angry men and women
    * ~50 handmade artworks
    * Manually placed sleepers and volumes
    * Unique traps and building techniques
    * Large garden in the backyard
    * Low system requirements



    Credits:

    We used and modified Horst's awesome tank:

    I've added a new screenshot to the original post. We will release the Gallery very soon. But first, we have to write an appropriate description of it for the op. That shouldn't take longer than a few hours, days or weeks.

    Yeah, I guess 'unique' is the right word.^^

    Very entertaining. It's a bloody shame the voxels and textures limit us to post-modernism, basic landscaping and predefined "paintings."

    Okay guys, in order to shorten the waiting time for A17, Top Minder has made a nice preview video showing some highlights of the Art Gallery:

    Finally got to check it out in-game. Enjoyed it a lot.
    Inspired and demotivated at the same time now, as always when getting humbled by superior artistic skill.

    Then spent 20 minutes trying to figure out what block you used for the desk frame in the gallery boss' office.
    Then remembered debug mode and f3 I thought I knew all the blocks in this game and stand corrected in that regard.

    I love all the art, my fav is the hippie room with the pink tank chassis as flower box. I like how there's often more to be discovered than meets the eye. Loot and Z-presence seems adequate for a build this size (in vanilla).

    Just incredible. I stick by my previous assessment that this rocks. :]

    Lol, I think that was the very last block that was unknown to me too.

    I had to log in for the first time in years just to comment on how awesome this build was, and how much I enjoyed the experience of going through it.

    My father is an artist, so I spent much of my childhood going around notable art galleries and museums. Thanks to this I can say with authority that you have the 'mood' of the prefab down perfectly. The height and uncluttered spacing perfectly brought forth the profound solemness necessary to highlight and give serene prominence to each piece. I was awed and inspired by the works of art, REAL art, that you two have graced upon the walls of that noble institution.

    Wether it was the ingenious usage of the inner triangular walkway pieces to depict stunning geometric shapes, or the inspired selection of the 'target' texture to accentuate a metal_sign_c, the military tank converted into a flower bed, the bold decision to display toilets with REAL poop, or, and most thought provoking, the usage of various loot containers (suitcases, safes..) in the pieces of art, often covered in a layer of glass.

    This last category deserves special mention as it makes the observer part of the exhibit as they must balance their admiration for beauty against their primitive, lustful, desire for loot. In my case, lust won. But! Once I had completed my inventory, and looked upon the ravaged and broken works, I was swept with a discordant sense of loss. Much like this broken world has experienced every day since the fall, another fragment of civilisation was forever lost in the pursuit of short term survival.

    Finally, the usage of the crate texture to simulate larger crates filled with precious cargo was an inspired touch. I was particularly overjoyed in one instance, and instantly dismayed in another, when cracking open these creations on the roof.

    Yours sincerely, a former art critic.

    A+ Would jump off the roof screaming again.

    p.s. the hidden crate in the garden was a nice touch

    Wow, that's certainly one of the most well-written prefab reviews we've ever read (I assume Top Minder shares my perspective). And I am not just saying that because your words are eminently positive. So thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback.
