Really loving the window panes and the guild hall roof. Those are incredible. How about a Kremlin onion top?

Very cool additions! Now I am curios to see a domed observatory roof with an arcane looking telescope sticking out of it.

Welcome to the Forums!

These additions are awesome! The bell tower, temple roof, and window inserts are of particular interest to me.
Thanks so much for sharing!

I am hoping to invest in a 3D printer one day... but it is down the list a ways... I think it is between kickstarters 6 and 7. ;)

I don't have a 3d printer but I will be marking plenty of custom stuff when mine arrives :D

Love those window panes! And that last roof is awesome! Full of character. I particularly like how you added the understructure, and not just plopped the (very cool) roof on top of it.

Just one more point in the "ask for a 3D printer for my birthday" tally. ;)

By the way, I've made a lot of roofs using the dungeon tiles for sizing. There a little off from the city builder size, but that's something I can work on. Most are unpainted, but that's fine with me, I have a place in my fantasy world known for it's painted towers, so bright colors work for that. Although I may try weathering them, if I can get a good way to do it.

Here's another one I like a lot. I think of it as a Temple or Guildhall roof:

Don't worry, there are no actual moderators on this forum. We sort of police ourselves.

Great first post! I've been itching to get a 3D printer, and this kind of stuff just makes me want to even more. I like the windows and the bell tower a lot!

LOVE the window inserts! I hope DF takes inspiration from this for KS4!

Well, I made them as three piece inserts, basically it's a window pane between two frames. The wall and therefore the windows are roughly 10mm thick. For a single large pane window, I put a 0.8mm pane between two 4.5mm frames, which centers the "glass." However, I prefer the four pane look. When I tried those same dimensions, the cross pieces looked too thick with a centered pane. So I wanted to move the pane closer to the outside. So for the four pane look, I have a 7mm thick frame that I insert on the inside, then from the outside I insert the "glass" pane, and finally I insert the 2mm outer frame with the cross pieces to create the appearance of four panes.

I'm pretty sure I can use this same technique to produce stained glass window, but the hard part will be using multiple colors of panes. I may need to glue those and make a single permanent insert.
