Too Much Free Time
- Nov 11, 2013
Honestly it was not that hard to make. I just put a block/slope shape down of the green material(here its bamboo), then set the Dark wood bits to replace. Then I marked some spots around the edge so I knew the lines would match up with the stripes on the adjacent blocks. I chose 4 spots along the top and bottom edge, and then one in the middle on the sides. Would have made it easier if I had made it the same number of spots on all edges, but I liked the pattern better this way.I'm rather enjoying that green leaf with black stick woven through it that you've got going on. Sort of thing I wish I had the skill to copy with mine.
Then all it took was free-handing some random lines between the marked spots.
For the most common slopes I created two variants to swap between, to avoid obvious patterns. But perhaps 3 would have been better, you can still see some patterns in the large surfaces.
The Bit Wrench from Extra Bit Manipulation came in handy for rotating and mirroring blocks/slopes, so I avoided having to design all the slopes from scratch.
On the larger huts, the non-rotation symetric pattern required a few extra patterns, to join the horizontal and vertical arranged patterns. But that was also super easy to just freehand join the spots
