3DForge BLUEPRINTS

Hi everyone,

I am very excited to announce that this is going to be the home of Premium BLUEPRINTS for existing and future 3DForge packages.

Premium BLUEPRINTS are new, easy to use, handcrafted prefabs that expands your collection of available scene building art assets.

It is a cool, exciting and productive way to expand creativity and help you save time and simultaneously get your hands on Custom Handcrafted designs straight from me, the asset developer. It will almost be like having me in your studio ;)

I will share thoughts, mini tutorials, with tips and tricks that will enrich your scene building experience and hopefully have us all learn some new things from each other. Come and be part of this by sharing your creative thoughts and provide constructive feedback.
Post requests and suggestions either here in this forum or you could email me direct at info@3dforge.co.za I try my best to accommodate everyone.

@S4G4N ,

Love this idea. Castles, whole castles, and on a bigger scale city and town walls with gates, bridges, portcullis etc. Merchant houses. More inns! Stables. Shops... The list is of course endless... :)

I wonder how long it'll be before some of the blueprints are nearly complete and there's a sudden realisation that some mesh pieces are missing and thus there's also an update needed to the parent asset pack as well? :face_with_spiral_eyes: :smile:

I know, I made a full sci-fi city using the medieval interior and medieval exterior packs, only to discover that all my pieces were missing.

HAHAHA, luckily you know me well enough to post this very good and valid question :wink:

@smada-luap & @Whippets , I have anticipated that I would get this question so I have a very good and welcome answer for the two of you :smile:

Lets first of all not label them as “missing”, but rather as “Parts that would also be great to have”
The Village Interiors Kit comes with 25 DEMO scenes. When I put them together I discovered many things that would be cool to also have. Now I am not going to go nuts and add more full sections with HUGE contents, but do see the potential for small contents additions along the way. It makes sense, since when you play with the assets more you will obviously come across new and fun usage cases that would warrant these kind of addition via contents updates.

So yes, these Premium BLUEPRINTS would understandably require you to always have the latest updated version of the packages that are required to use them as described in there respective pages when they get released.

Hope that answers the question

I'd like to see some blueprints related to dungeons and catacombs from the interiors kit. You could make a series of larger modular dungeon segments that all snap together. So a variety of rooms and corridors that can be used to quickly create a large dungeon or catacomb.

Glad you like the idea, everyone that have used BLUEPRINTS and seen how easy they are to use, want more.

Some great thoughts, basically some small and larger dungeon parts that can then by adding several together make very large dungeons and undead catacombs. that is a great way to build even more very easily.

Thanks for the feedback

@S4G4N ,

I think some larger scale stuff is a must, within which we can place other smaller blueprint and other prefabs...

@milan8888 , Absolutely :slight_smile:

There will be Premium BLUEPRINTS for the Tile A Dungeon - Sewer Kit
There will be other future Tile A Dungeon themed packages as well.
The whole method of building Layout super-fast without having to drop 1000’s of tiles has been well received and everyone that have used it can agree and love it.

All packages that will receive Premium BLUEPRINTS will carry the logo on the package page on the Unity Asset Store
