  1. I actually prefer the other one. This looks very good, I only think the roof should be just a little curvy and not like an American barn. But generaly speaking, I liked it
  2. Radagast, sorry for calling you Heph, I only noticed the name change recenlty, lol. I like your idea of using this more "primitive" tiles before updating the houses. I just think the roof would look better with a darker color. Hope you're also going great
  3. @Stan: The houses are looking beautiful @Heph: You mean the roofs for the Japanese? The updated houses should have a more refined roof (not as refined as the temples), I'll soon make some example sketches and stablish some convetions. Using the term "refined roof" is a little too vague, lol.
  4. Now that you've mentioned it I remembered there is a religious ceremony somewhere in Japan once a year in wich a archer has to shoot from a running horse. Let's use the yabusame rider as well, then.
  5. Here's a proposed list of units. Note that those are merely descriptions rather than definitive names: INFANTRY -Samurai -Ashigaru Arquebuser ("musketeer") -Ashigaru Pikeman -Sensei (martial arts master) -Ronin -Warrior Monk -Archer CAVALRY -Mounted Samurai -Mounted Pikeman SUPPORT -Male Peasant -Female Peasant -Ox cart -Shinto Priest Just some I thought of. I also think that the samurai would be the most powerful infantry unit in the game, so, not to give the Japanese too much vantage over other civilizations, the samurai would be very expensive and would have a limit of 10 trained by castle ( that is, 20 in totality, since there are both mounted and unmounted classes). This also agrees with the fact that, since the samurais were nobles, they would exist in much smaller number than other warriors. The ronin, in the other hand would have no limit and would be trained in the dojo. We need to figure out more hand-to-hand units.
  6. I find this anti-towerism to be senseless. Towers would obviously be stronger and fire more arrows than units. To me, there is nothing unrealistic about towers in the game. I got two suggestions: -Storehouses should be built anywhere on the map -Walls could only be attacked by siege, after all, an army wouldn't take a massive stone wall down just by banging swords against it.
  7. Thanks a lot. The fence is just like the dojo's, but I was lazy to draw the tiles . No problem if the range can't be increased. It's great to know the CC will chane it's looks everytime an age is advanced, this would give the player the solid impression he's evolving in history. As for the castle, I think that at least for the Japanese, it would be avaliable earlier, since it acts mostly as barracks. Here's another angle of the new CC, just the main construction (perhaps we can shorten the passarel that links both buldings)
  8. These towers are from an architectural style very different from that of the earlier Japanese. The most acurate representation of a tower we could give them would look a lot like an outpost, nothing really fancy. Here's a very quick sketch on the civic center, which I plan redoing, I think it represents the Japanese better than the other one I've done. The garden and the lake inside would be a very important part of it. What do you guys think?
  9. Standard tower on the left, updated version on the right. Changes: - Bigger shooting range - Shoots bullets instead of arrows. Bullets go further than arrows and take more hitpoints but are fired in a slower interval -Gets a nice plataform and a roof window. I think the castle should be updated in the same way, now using firearms, same texture changing and plataform and roof window additons.
  10. By the way, I'll draw each of the buildings of the fort individually. Here are sketches of a house, a guard tower and a grannary, from left to right ( the reconstruction above looks much better).
  11. Thanks, Stan .Yes, they are, here's a little reference (plus a reconstruction of a grannary).
  12. The model looks great, but I'm not sure if they used real bayonets, i.e. no little knife at the tip of the shotgun.
  13. Here's my take on this. Please ignore the gun he's holding, it looks like shite.
  14. We gotta take in consideration they also packed two katana swords by their belts.
  15. Sorry, I researched a little and discovered the ashigaru was used before the Portuguese came . My bad.
  16. For the roof, I think it should be unchangable. For example, more "refined" buildings as civ center, castle, nobles houses or temples would have the finest type of roof. Blacksmith, dojo and some others would be made of average tiles, whereas peasants' homes would have a roof covering. Talking about the blacksmith, here it is, and it looks like my scanner's back on track! The sign in front of the building should have the characters 鍛冶屋 ( kajiya), meaning blacksmith.
  17. I like the idea of fireams, but they could only be featured in the final stage of the game, since shotguns were introduced in Japan by the Portuguese in mid 16th century.
