Painting Timber Framed Walls

Recommended Posts

Thank you developers and graphics people who have brought us so far forward in our ability to paint things that the game can enjoy more depth and realism with the boats and furniture with dye channels that separate sections to be dyed/painted in different colors. That said, I feel an opportunity has been missed with the timber framed walls. Currently, the complete item being painted can look jarring and disjointed from the rest of the surrounding buildings of various types.

 

I suggest implementing the two-channel painting option for timber-framed walls where the stucco and wood portions are painted separately. I think this could lead to some very interesting and beautiful villages.

 

Imagine how lovely this could be with just the stucco painted for these buildings.  Since the wood would be unaffected, the timber framed would still blend well with the top of the stone walls.  What do you think? How could this option improve the depth and interest of your village?

Perhaps the same could be possible for the wooden walls also. Painting just the clapboard or just the trim pieces could make some really interesting buildings and barns!

I want to sanction the person who painted these plank walls... that QL is terribly low, unless the idea for it was the look and more 'natural' yellow/orange/brown kind of wood texture....... hmm

hmm

 

but ok, makes sense until it doesn't, pretty sure there could be both good and bad applications of such feature.... certainly makes it easier to paint a tower/light house, whenever such fits the surroundings to not just stand out like Retro clothing choice, than you just look, don't point or beg for a copy, keep it classy.

 

fine

I'm all in favor of more options for adding color and variations to our ability to decorate in game, especially when it comes to building.  Allowing the stucco and timber frame portions to be dyed independently would be a fantastic next step in that direction for building options, and it seems it would be an easy change to make with many creative benefits.

The low quality was desired as I wanted a reddish tone but not RED for my barn. It's just warmer than the regular wood plank walls, intended as a subtle difference, especially since different wood colors based on wood type don't impact wooden walls.

The rich colors are absolutely possible and used, making the resulting painted walls extremely vibrant with both the stucco and wood painted. Next time I sail around I'll find an example. They can be very Retro's Armor.
