===[COMMITTED]=== Mauryan Barracks

Recommended Posts

This is a picture of WIP Mauryan barracks I am making using Enrique's Eggbird's wonderful textures. Needs a little bit more UV mapping and addition of props (which should be made. especially shields)

Suggestions are welcome :)

I think the inner courtyard / atrium needs to be more lively...e.g. through adding some barrels or something else... but you probably had that in your mind already. But apart from that it looks great! Keep up the good work! I'm looking forward to see it finished one day. ;)

edit: As it should be a barrack, I think weapons, shields or some sort of armor might fit better than barrels :)

Nice start man! The layout looks good, but the barrel-roof looks a too big right now in compared with the building's size.

By the way, those awesome textures are made by Eggbird, not by me :P and they're are wonderful indeed :)

Good start. I think the corners of the dome could be more subtle. But since its not a grand structure like the CC or temple, I'd use a flat roof rather than the curved roof.

Hmm... I was hoping for a layout more along the lines of the Persian or maybe Roman barracks. The back part needs to be the tallest for consistency.

Can you explain more please?

Some props added.

Yep, Amish's example is a better layout. I'd even add another leg for a U shape, with a wall in front and entrance.

Another thing is I should point out, only the larger buildings should be stone. All other smaller buildings, like houses and mill and farmstead and such should be the wooden/white plaster look. (y)

As far as shields go, a full set of shields for units need to be modeled and textured first before folks start adding shields as props to buildings. :)

I completely agree, all/most Mauryan buildings should have the wooden/white plaster look. I think they'll look much much better in-game. Everyone working on the civ structures should take a look through these video clips.

I think the barracks should be flat topped, like the little building in the picture Amish posted. No sense in having a military building overly ornate.

I was thinking something more along this line for the barracks...it needs to look grand imo :)

That's beautiful...

I just want to say try to use thinner arches for this period. Not so much of the thick ones, because it's a later style. But If you guys choose not to, that's ok.

^^^^^^^^

I may not be explaining it right, but these 'thick' arch designs are from later dynasties.(Mauryan's successors)

Here is an example of 'thin' ones below. Rock cut directly from the Mauryan period. Not from their successors.

reliefs from their successors. Still used the design from time to time.

The top arches are thinner, bottom arches are thicker.

There is an image like this showing the different arch types on the internet. Showing the different designs in different dates like with the stupas above. It would make sense to you guys If I can find it.

Mauryans had a thin design like this mostly. The earliest form.

Later these archs evolved and became more elaborate and thick.

these arches above are Gupta period I believe.

Both examples are same things except that the right one has a barrel roof. I don't understand clearly which proportions are off, so, alittle help is appreciated. What should I do for it to be right?
