Excellent idea. I hadn't thought of that one yet.

I think half roofs on pillars make great market or street decoration.

If you center a 4x4 2nd story over a 4x8 story below, you can place a half roof to either side.

You don't need new street tiles for a 4x6 building. What you do need are sidewalks between buildings... what I mean is its doable with the current tile set - which is a completely different beast from what people might consider preferrable.

Also, the half-roofs are currently meant to provide a different - would it be gable end? - paired with the different shingle.. so the Tudor with slate shingle, for instance.

Half Roof Builds & More Floors

Post by Thunder » Tue Feb 09, 2016 10:49 am

After playing around with the roofs quite a bit, it appears I lack imagination.

I cannot seem to find a decent build for the half roofs that is not just pairing them up for a full roof. Because everything seems set on the 4x4 grid the half roofs seem kinda useless.

Hopefully in the Castles Kickstarter there are some larger floor pieces that break out of the 4x4 grid. I tried building a couple large floor plan buildings like a tavern or a warehouse and am really limited by the floor pieces. I quickly run out of corner posts and floor pieces.

Does anybody have any material ideas that would easily make a floor piece perhaps 4x12 or even 8x12?

I recognize that breaking out of the 4x4 grid would mean some new street tiles would have to be developed to match up to a 4x6 floor piece.

Peace
