So one of the cool things in the NGE was the addition of houses with windows, and I never got to experience it. So I decided to see if it could be done.



Here is a house pretty much imported from patch 45 with a few changes. So next step is to do it to a house that never came with windows.



And after 3 weeks, I have success. The second one isn't finished yet since I'm not really good at making curtains.

So now I'm done with
-Naboo Small 1
-Naboo Small 2
-Naboo Medium
-Naboo Large
-Naboo Guild Hall

Im getting much better at this to once I figure out what I want to do with the building. Some of the walls have a lot of space between the inside and the outside, so the window sills are pretty big. Few cases of windows on one side of the wall but not the other, so in one case I removed it and in another I completed it. The guild hall was turning into an epic mess trying to add windows since it doesn't have any. So I scraped what I was working on and went for the skylight. Could add some more detail to it, but I think it looks pretty decent right now. Done some more work on the 3dmax msh import/export. Scrapped the max normals and wrote my own calculations. That seems to of fixed all the lighting issues.

Moar interior shots plz.

This will breathe new life in my desire to decorate. Just adding windows makes the buildings seem so modern, graphically speaking.

Two more questions rosuto, can you ... reskin the exteriors of generic buildings to have a Naboo skin? And lastly, can you place windows in city halls too? Med centers?

Ok, sorry for being away for a while, school got busy with lots of papers and projects due in a small amount of time. So no real updates yet but I can answer questions.

1) I made it so that the curtains were part of the house. The current naboo houses all have curtains, I just replaced the current ones with a new version that is visible from both sides

2) Wallpaper is a texture change. Just have to find the texture file and replace it. Same thing with the guild hall. I've played around with textures (spent hours making some new ones) and tossed them all because they were more than the game could handle. So I was a little depressed about that and haven't been back to texturing.

3) All the naboo houses are done. My last thing I did was went through and checked out the naboo city buildings to see what could be changed. The city hall is next on my list. The med center I was unsure of as it does not have windows so I have to cut holes in the walls and see where things can go. Everything else came out as a no though, either due to the differences of the inside and outside models or the lack of suitable places for anything other than a skylight.

4) One thing that should be noted is that the game will only load what you are allowed to see. Therefore if you can't/haven't entered a building, the server will not send you the information for what is in the building.
