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 :wink:

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.

  1. Reds/yellows are warm and inviting. These colors make people relax spend money. (Think of the fast food chains)
  2. Bright colors suggest energy and action.
  3. Pale/muted colors suggest luxury
  4. Ceilings lighter than floors make your space look bigger.
  5. Start with two primary colors and add a third that stands out/accents.

Other things I might add:

  1. Mix your materials. Add some wood or brick into your build for interest. I like refined lustrous on my walls.
  2. Plants!! Houseplants, potted plants, hanging plants, and flowers, make your build feel alive. Should leave some space in your city for parks/gardens too.

Best material is free material.
Best combo is natural planet colors.

I tend To use as much nature To my advantage as i can. Also this is cheap and fast as i can gather everything When i need them.

-big tree (house)
-little hill (nice storageroom)

The best materials and colors are whatever you happen to have enough of to complete the build…

you might want a color, but if it doesnt spawn you cant want it into existence unless you are willing to burn some cash and roll some sovs.

not sure if already mentioned, but dirt makes great wall / stucco texture - looks natural, less sterile than concrete, plenty of colors available, you can transform chisel it to add more variety. works very well with wood and it is dirt cheap :smiley: if you want to see it used, go to ‘Pyrr’ sovereign planet ( tnt sov wall)

EDIT : or if you are on pc, you can load the new multiverse sanctum on Testing (at least I think you can do that on testing, if not, never mind) there is dirt being used as a generic smooth texture in combination with various materials


Hm never tried it

OooOoO I hadn’t thought of this. I’ll def try it out.

the downside is that it has to be chiselled from the back, otherwise it has the natural wobbly edges and bleeding texture
