Seed Structures
« on: June 10, 2018, 12:13:31 PM »
Although I've posted a few of these in the main thread, I'm starting a new thread for the updated seed structures.

Here is a new attempt at the seed lander.

I really like the capsule.

The ramp look slightly offset to the side of the doorway. Is there a reason for that?

It's probably a trick of the eye due to shadows. I suppose I can make the doors flip up instead of outward.

The robots need a ramp to get to the surface so I'd keep them as flipping down. :)

That stated, I like this one but it's a bit bland? Very very grey. The original had more white, blue and purple in it. I don't know how important it is though considering that this is a hobbled together craft and it's only going to last 70 turns at most anyway.

I meant flip the doors up (instead out outward), but leave the ramps in place.

Here's another version, with extra dodads as requested.

I see what you mean by trick of the shadows now. Once you mention it it's more obvious. I guess I was viewing the shadow of the door on the right as part of the opening.

Definitely digging the additional details. It's like it has exactly the right amount.

Wondering though -- if you look at the top ring, there's a stark contrast between it and the top and sides of the lander. But the way the render comes out there's almost not enough anti-aliasing on it? Wondering if it's a detail that can be expanded slighting to give it a more defined edge?

It's a minor thing I think but just a thought.

Anyway, adding this one to the game. Definitely loving it.

Adjusted some colors and the top (slightly).
