Screenshots of Suburbia

I thought it was about time for me to create a few screenshots showing a more complete scene rather than showing more individual assets. Working without any schedule, it's easy to start to drift into creating random assets, and I find creating these little scenes every now and again helps me to focus. It also allows me to experiment with the setup/placement of assets, and it highlights which will be the easiest method for creating the routes efficiently.

You may notice a few characters in the screenshots. These are intentionally 'blocky' for two reasons: they match the art style, and they are generic enough to allow quick re-skins to create the variety that I want. I'll post more details on characters very soon.

I've created a 'fake' platform loft which I've placed alongside the road. This is used to control the spawning and placement of characters on the pavement. I've created a another loft for the pavement purely for the visuals. Creating a 'platform marker' along the nearby section of road allows the bus to pull up, and the passengers get on or off the bus.

  1. Those characters look more life like than the ones in the 166!
