Theme - Japanese Shrine
Build and general objects for a Japanese Shrine or house.
The set includes 20 walls, 8 floors, 1 roof and 40 assorted objects.
Please note, this set isn't perfect. It's as good as I can get it, however some objects bleed through walls a little and others appear to go behind objects. All objects have been tested, however if you experience any problems, just remove them from your game.
Some of the items require a little practice to set up,
All items go into your Downloads folder unless noted.
I hope you like this set!
Notes: The offering box is across three tiles so it will align with the Torii gates in this set. With the sink with the dippers, the dippers appear to turn around in two rotations - it was either that or have the shadows messed up in those two views.
Notes: There is a known issue with the corner fence piece - columns placed on the same tile will appear to be behind the fence palings in the view where they should be in front of them. To work around it, use the columns a tile away. All of the fence pieces work as columns and will support a roof tile, so a corner column isn't needed for building purposes. If you want the look of a corner column, use regular fence pieces with the corner position column (as shown in the picture).
Notes: To cover the top of the main entry stairs (the set with the posts) with either a floor tile or the set's roof pieces, place the stairs then position columns until you can cover the stairs with the flooring, then remove the columns.
Notes: This deck is rather useless if you want to align it with paths, gates or anything else as everything around it will appear to move as you rotate the views. For best results, put flooring underneath the entire area where the deck is and one tile extra under the edges where you want the deck edging. Works best for wrap-around porches/verandahs/decks without stairs, or without a path leading to the stairs.
Smaller deck edge sets (with instructions) are on the Build page.
Walls - set of 20
Floors - set of 8
Notes: To place the roof pieces, rotate them until the wood edge is to the visible sides if at the front of a roof, or until the coloured edge is to the front, if working on the back of a roof. That way, the wood edge will show in all views when the lot is rotated. Place the corners at the corners and then in diagonally (as pictured), using the wood edges as the visible sides and the coloured edges at the back.
