What are the best material and or color combos for building a base
Taste is subjective, but concrete and logs work quite well together if the colors aren’t clashing.
Though it depends heavily on what you’re building, so I wouldn’t really be able to tell much else.
Pretty much just looking for color and or material combos that work then I can go of that
In my opinion, not refined gleam. Can’t get any more specific than that with no theme in mind.
Look up a paintstore online. They will have colour matching
Everyone builds different.
I prefer using nature as guidance… Even using it on its own.
Searching around on redditt, instagram or even just down the road can provide a lot of inspiration and observing these in a critical manner can help you find your own taste in buildings and colours which can then be used as a blueprint or just inspiration for building something a bit different.
Much more involving and interesting to build things you like rather than just build purely for the hope of other receiving other peoples praise.
When i get time later I’ll post some good sources, though I think there was already a thread here somewhere regarding inspirational sources…
Silk Yellow forever!
Gleam…with deco gems and led’s. The biggest prestige grabbing offensive eyesore boundless had to offer
I stumbled across what I feel is an awesome roman/light block theme by accident a few months ago. I mixed up bricks and stones, looks weathered and the colour works really well in ashen taupe (I think anyway) come to arie and take a look around if you like. From the main hub, drop to the lower level and the portal labelled ghandy. Or pop to arie and give me a /w . There’s a LOT of awesome builds and combos by @Damagekai and @Minipower here too
Yeah that was also one of my thoughts was to look at other builds
Don’t duplicate, innovate!
Saying that, I’m currently working on a build in various hues of taupe:p
Well yes but duplicating is not what this means I talking color and or material combos then I can base my base after that
See what I did there
I see what you did but not sure you saw what I said but that’s ok, because in the end it’s all about the…
For my latest small build (a mall shop renovation) I went with white bricks, white marble, white oortian marble, and cold tan foliage. Also used a bit of black glass.
In the end I lit it up with several colors of gleam. I posted some pics last night.
here is a post with some links
can use this to see the way people use colours and materials when creating.
one useful tip is to gather a library of colour blocks and have a little test area to try things out.
can also use the public creative world for that if time etc prevents collecting.
I’ve noticed marble and gleam work well
blocks, gleam, gems, soil
Color combination really depends on what kind of feeling you want - and personal taste. But there are some things you can take away from color theory, branding, and interior design.
- Reds/yellows are warm and inviting. These colors make people relax spend money. (Think of the fast food chains)
- Bright colors suggest energy and action.
- Pale/muted colors suggest luxury
- Ceilings lighter than floors make your space look bigger.
- Start with two primary colors and add a third that stands out/accents.
Other things I might add:
- Mix your materials. Add some wood or brick into your build for interest. I like refined lustrous on my walls.
- Plants!! Houseplants, potted plants, hanging plants, and flowers, make your build feel alive. Should leave some space in your city for parks/gardens too.
