i totally support the idea. in fact some time ago i wanted to do something similar but i could not find an attractive graphic presentation.
i somehow feel it should be done 3d but that puts up so many problems in positioning the view that it's not worth it. plus because CC doesn't support a full 3d environment lots of little details are lost.

Image



i also envisioned the gameplay not simply by making each room a terit but by actually making the stuff found in rooms worth something.
each room is a continent and within each continent you have several bonus options like the couch+tv or the toilet bowl and the sink or combined bonuses like. couch +tv gives +1 for watching a movie and if you have fridge + oven you have dinner and it also gives +1. but if you have both bonuses you don't get +2 but rather +3 because you're watching the movie while eating dinner. and stuff like that.

before i scrolled down and saw DiM's post my initial reaction was that this looked far too flat to represent a house... if it's going to be made (and I'm not certain it's a fantastic idea) the ideal graphics in my mind would be a playful 3-D model, like something out of a SIM game.

ok seriously now back to the topic.
cairns the idea is good i like it but you need to make the house look more 3d.
but first and most important put a legible font. i'm killing my eyes trying to distinguish the names :(

also work on some better textures. perhaps a hearts and poneys texture for the girl some battle bots or army type texture for the boy. carpets for the halls. wood floor in the bedroom some ceramic tiles in the kitchen, etc. you get the idea. make it look more like a house rather that some walls will colors between them.

those are some scary pics, perfect for halloween time :lol:

i totally like this idea, but i dont think cairns can do full 3D like urs DiM.

but i do agree on the better font and more homestyle textures for each part of the houe including maybe a gray texture for the garage maybe even a oil spil for details?

full 3d is unfortunately not possible right now bacause without a 3d environment for the maps it's useless do do something 3d just to take a screenshot and play in 2d. i merely posted that image as a source of inspiration for cairnswk. if he can manage a pseudo 3d it would be great.

I like the idea. Better contrast and font is needed, though.

And I also agree with rjbeals :D

Rename it to fir the "CC*" theme. Like We have Conquer Club University. This should be Conquer Club Manor.

Just a random thought.

Sorry, insomniacdude, that won't happen, thanks for the suggestion though, I am going to stick to Madness (Our House)...to fit with the song by the English group Madness...

Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs
Sister's sighing in her sleep
Brother's got a date to keep
He can't hang around

{Refrain}
Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our

Our house it has a crowd
There's always something happening
And it's usually quite loud
Our mum, she's so house-proud
Nothing ever slows her down
And a mess is not allowed

{Refrain}

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our
Something tells you that you've got to move away from it

Father gets up late for work
Mother has to iron his shirt
Then she sends the kids to school
Sees them off with a small kiss
She's the one they're going to miss
In lots of ways

{Refrain}

I remember way back then when everything was true and when
We would have such a very good time
Such a fine time, such a happy time
And I remember how we'd play, simply waste the day away
Then we'd say nothing would come
Between us two dreamers

{Repeat first verse}

Our house, in the middle of our street (3X)
Our house, in the middle of our

Our house, was our castle and our keep
Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, that was where we used to sleep
Our house, in the middle of our street (3X)


This is also a better mareting tool....the word Madness.

DiM, your 3D model comes from Plan3D i think doesn't it.
Anyways, i went in there, and downloaded that and will see if it is possible to get something up in that style,,,but this program is very tedious and slow on my computer.
I may still have to try working something in Fireworks with the 3D psuedo dimension to it like I did in Pearl.
I'll see what i can develop that is interesting.

If you're house is like Sparta, Coleman, then this is a perfect example of why this house idea might work. I did it because it respresent the average and no-so-average house where there are battles between most families and this is a prefect "battle ground". The link from Dad's terts around the back of the house to Siss's area is reality where Dad often has the 'curtailments' for little sister. The front door link with Bud having 'open access' is also very real, as boys oftern get a better deal from Dad with many things.
I think everyone would be able to relate very much to this idea, and it is a perfect opportunity for a small map from me. Goodness know, the other two in my development stage are not going to be small 30 tert maps. As i said at the outset, a little bit of fun. :)
Sorry though that you don't like.

Okay some comments:

Best be to split up rear path.
Make windows attack one-way outside.
Get rid of those slid doors.
Include yards.

Can do this.

Make windows attack one-way outside.

why, what are your reasons for this?

Get rid of those slid doors.

Does this really matter. please explain.

Include yards.

Don't really want to. It's adding extra terts, and one more on the garden path might not matter, but several more and the object of doing this "small" map then gets defeated.

Interesting idea...I've thought for a while a house map might work...we'll see how the idea develops.

Maybe you should add a 'Doghouse', as you know someone always ends up there...and may a doggie door too. ;)
