Feedback and Help- CAW
« on: 2010 July 28, 01:44:07 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Okay so I'm working on my own little town at the moment, it isn't complete, but it's getting there, the basic layout is done, but I have ran into a couple of issues. (The roads on the right island are not complete on purpose, as I am working on the left and middle islands first).

First off here is an overview of the town itself:



The problem however that I've run into is something like this:



I am trying to find a way at limiting the camera so it doesn't trail off like that, there was an option in CAW called "Camera Routing" but alas it seems to do absolutely...nothing. Also when I completely zoom out (as in picture one) it looks out of place and wrong. My current idea to solving this is forgetting the access point and instead making a "fake" ferrie point somewhere on the island to make it feel more like a lone island.

I decided I'd take a look at good old help, but for the last couple of days all I have gotten is : "The site is down for maintenance. Please try again later."

Anyway what I am asking for is a bit of feedback in regards to the look of the town itself. It's only going to be a small town, the middle island is where the City Hall and main park will be situated, the left island is most likely going to be housing, stores and school, while the right will be employment places of different assorts. There are no "big" houses in this neighbourhood, they will be small to medium size.

Anyway any feedback/help is appreciated. Thanks Smiley

So what I'm thinking of doing though with my island is also making most of the areas accessable only by walking there, like what will be for the middle island, so I was thinking of removing the middle roads on the left island, any thoughts?

What you are asking for is not possible at this time, at least not with the tiny island you chose to use as a base.  If you really want to create something like this, you need to choose the largest piece of land possible.  Then you should plop down one of the distance terrain objects.  Carve away at the land until you have chiseled away almost all of the land around the distant terrain.  Then you can make your little islands as far away from that as possible and it will appear as though the main land is in the distance. 

Aside from that I'm not into tiny island towns.  I like large sprawling worlds that put my computer to the test.  There are many others that like them small though.

Ah damn, is there any possible way to already increase the map size after I've chosen a base size? That way I can fix the problem im experiencing, if not I gues I'll fix the water so it floats down a bit nicer so it doesnt look like one giant square of blue.

And I was intending on building a big one in the first place, but I just never seem to have the patience to go about building all the lots to go with it (I am not very skilled in building houses in my own opinion haha).
