New thatched roof textures

Recommended Posts

I'm sure something similar to this has been mentioned, but I'm not talking about the roof models like previous threads sort of went into.

Figured now with the revival after the steam release would be a good time to bring it up.

 

Thatched roofs are beautiful, the current texture for these roofs in-game is not.

 

They don't have to be extravagant or anything like that, just look a little less boring.

I'm certain many people feel the same way.

Or maybe even multiple types of thatched roofs unlocked by the skill.

 

Edit: Did a quick texture myself and replaced the in-game one in DeedPlanner. I think this serves as a better example.

Looks good! I would love more options for thatched roofs!
And while we're at it, I would also love wood log house walls like in your picture xD

Totally agree with that. :)

Living in a deep forest along a lake on Xanadu with one of these:

+1 The current thatched roof really does need improving - it does not motivate players to skill thatching and thatch their cottages.

A couple of options of types would be so good.  Come on Devs !

Once upon a time we had auto-roofs, that were created once all walls of the house were completed. In my opinion those auto-roofs looked better than the thatch roof we have now. I did the grind to getting 20 thatching once, but felt heavily disappointed by the looks of the thatch.

 

When travelling around wurm, I don't think anyone is using the thatch look. So I'm all for a remodelling. Or if nothing else, why not bring the old look back, from the auto-roofs. That texture must be present in some old files.

 

Arguably thatched roofs are the hardest to make, because of being it's own skill. You need to grind 1-20 specifically to get access to this roof type. Please make it a valuable skill by not keeping the looks of the thatched roof so utterly rubbish.

While I am not completely against your proposal, I want to preserve thatched roofs' current texture. It perfectly fits marble and bright wall structures in Wurm.

Here a small one on my deed.

And though I looked at a number of thatched roof pictures, I saw few if any with the tiled texture as proposed. I could imagine it as an alternative. But I would like to preserve the current texture
