Quite like yur human houses’ exterior and most of the interiors, but there’s room for some improvement. Take a look at this image. You should try to avoid using the same material for both the walls and the floors/ceilings in order to add a little more contrast. Also, instead of lining up several types of blocks along a wall like you’ve done here, you should try and make some furniture pieces with trapdoors, or regular doors to make broom closets or other types of cupboards. For the balconies, solid metal plating for a railing is kind of unrealistic, as well as the stone railing supported by the wooden supports. Though colour-wise they look good, maybe opt for wood instead. Lastly, the basic layout of your ruins is there, but it could still be improved somewhat. I would advise you to take a closer look at some of the ruins in the Weather Hills, the bigger ones in particular. All things considered, it’s pretty good. If you could show me how you would redo the bakery interior (the one in the image i link to), i’ll gladly accept you after you’ve improved that one room!
i took your criticism, and put it to good use. I added more detail to the bakery including a broom closet and a pantry for spices and such along the wall where the sacks were. i also made some"improvements" to the house part of the bakery as well as you will see a new balcony/porch area. I also took your advice on the “stone flower box” did seem out of place. i made a few minor changes to some of the details in each house as well as correcting the issue with the interior walls blending with the floors/ceilings. overall i think there is still more room for improvements, as I am still learning what all is possible with the modpack. If there is anything else you can see that I might improve upon fell free to let me know. Thank you for your consideration.
Still not exactly what i was looking for, but just as you’re saying yourself, some practice should get you there. Take a look at /warp fbikea once you get builder for some more inspiration. When doing an interior, somtimes less is more! No need to fill every empty spot with a bucket or barrel.
