    First Post (Old Town)

    This is my first post here so go easy.
    Im working on an old west town. I need to add lots more detail- some more houses and stuff. Any thoughts on what I can add?

    Thanks

    Nice.

    Well, it's a very clean and tidy building and area. I would add some various debris, old boards, a well or water pump of some kind and some old fencing or something.

    It has a great feel to it so far...I love the textures!!

    Maybe you can add some kind of large machinery that's falling apart..with lots of rust etc.

    Thanks Guys! I appreciate the comments!
    Good ideas. I'll see what I can add soon. Maybe an old tractor to model and some debris. Shouldn't be that hard I guess... make it lowpoly and stick it in the background.
    I've had lots of fun with hypervoxels, first time I tried bushes... Some guy did a desert scene a few years ago that looked great...cant remember his name...? Any Ideas?

    A wooden/barb-wire fence would break things up nicely... see the new textures from NewTek

    If it is contemporary, a car wreck would be nice too... though difficult...

    Telephone poles...

    A windmill next to the pump... One made of a skeletal structure...

    Rolling bush... eh tumbleweed, I guess...

    Perhaps a train track...

    I have to stop..

    almost too clean

    My suggestion, anything that old never has all of the roofing or siding on the house, maybe remove some of them and make it look tore up.

    Maybe you should clear a path at the front at the moment all the ground cover looks very even.

    it's looking nice, specifically the textures.. is that vulture poo on the roof..?

    on a more serious note however, the buildings seem more like a model to me as there is no visible, or even hint of a foundation or piles.. there would at the very least be some sort of crawl space beneath the buildings.. the crawl space could be covered with the siding material but the floors would not be at ground level and you'd see this on the exterior.. just my 2 cents..

    great work so far though and keep it up.. i'd really like to see some sort of walk-through animation when you're done..

    Slow updating....
    Here's the scene with some poles and wires added.
    Yep, its vulture poo on the roof kinda big tho now that I look at it. Must be big bird.
    I will add more today and post.
    Thanks for the comments everyone.
