Accepted as long as there is a place for the farmers livestock to stay at, in the main building or in a outbuilding by the farmers plot.

[Westfold Village 6]

I fixed the materials issue Whe had for the most part. I also think I’ve gotten the interiors right and the livestock pens. I’ll be doing the gardens next in an allotment style similar to what you had in Bree. Then I’ll finish the layout and make it public.

However, I would like some feedback on the exteriors and especially the front of the houses closest to the road, because atm they feel too hobbitish to me. @Benzathoth

Looks good to me, don’t forget adding smaller outbuildings for storage and a place for the animals to stay in the winter.

Also don’t mix in full blocks in a roof with the staircase block.

Was slowly working on this, and others had started to help, but whatever.

I assume the reason for changing my diagonal house was to make it smaller, but please dear god do not make roofs like that. I’d recommend using full blocks/vert slabs/corner blocks instead.

In regards to the roads I was taking inspiration for KCD

Having grass encroaching on the road in places, and muddier more worn parts of the road developing, as well as stones along some of the edges.

Also last I recall Ben wanted more white plaster but according to Whe it would be costly to bring out to the plains. So I’d suggest a Healthy mix of White Plaster for larger households, and then Wood or Wattle, and Mud walls (brown plaster works for that) for the rest.

I’d also round the roof edges.
Could do some more dramatically like this.

And the rest with a single block off like my example house.

Finally. The Large Garden on the West side was intended to be a large allotment for the houses surrounding it, Similar to the ones in Bree. The Gardens on the East side were going to be more like this.

Check with Ben but that empty area on the road West out of the town would be a good place for pollards.

Wouldn’t overdo it with trees. There are some nice new bushes in 1.12 i’d spam those to add vegetation in bare spots.

Hey Glov thanks so far for your feedback and thoughts,
Yeah the house was a bit large so I just trimmed it down a bit and changed the angle a bit to flow along the road slightly smoother (the roof was just a throw away thing I was looking at whilst not really paying attention so dont worry it will be going)
The roads can always be changed pretty quickly to make them more like the one you have linked above which look like they will suit the region pretty well however they will need a gradual transition to this as the rest of the Westfold currently has a very homogeneous path mix. The idea of the grass encroaching the road will certainly be used where foot traffic is lower (next to the allotments and gardens as well as the smaller trails and paths. Well travelled areas will be muddier from foot traffic and frequent use as well as animals using them etc…)
Ben messaged me asking for less white plaster a few days ago to use more of the muddy Tudor and the mud stone brick for the houses so I cut down the number of the plastered ones significantly and replaced them with the brown plaster/mud walls. I don’t mind taking inspiration from your rounded edges as they look pretty fitting for the style.
Thanks again.

You guys can co-lead this, I was under the impression that you’d lost interest.


#11

#12

Either way sounds good to me


#13

On a side note, don’t forget about privies. I’ve built two but I’m not sharing them with the rest of the village. And also:
