Hello!

 

Since the new mapping tools came out, I was working really hard on creating the HUGE apartment building that I'm currently living at IRL.

 

It mostly consists of 5-6 entrances, 5 story high, 4 flats each floor. In total, that goes by amount of 120 flats in 1 apartment building.

 

BUT, since each "entrance" has relatively same "copy-pasted" layout, I thought of an easier solution to do it, rather than having to map it all out with hand.

This is a ONE ENTRANCE out of 6. 20 apartment flats in total. I've completed the layout, doors, windows, window sheets, walls, stairs and a roof. I figured, all I need to map left are "edges" of a building, since those have additional windows on the sides, and then just copy-paste this "MID" entrance 3-4 times inbetween. Voila - We'll get a huge Russian apartment building with 120 flats. All there is left to do is fill it up with furniture.

FLOOR PLANS for one of the stories. 4 flats in 1 picture, building ed ran out of colors to give me for each room name ^_^ Copy-pasted this floor plan 4 more stories up.

Yes, yes, YES. This. We need some tightly packed apartment blocks in the stock game at some point. Laying down gangplanks, chopping down stairs, setting sail on the seas of high finance...

 

Be a great fortress once you get the roof coated in sand, for sure!

Finished mapping the edges for each apartment (now you can put the blocks together and make the apartment as wide as you want). Now all I need is to put furniture in these bad boys.

Russian neightborhood anyone? ^_^ (Using the empty map space to the south of Muldraugh)

 

 

Big thanks to every comment out there!

Finished placing furniture for all three blocks of the apartment. Now you can combine them all in WorldEd and create a very wide apartment complex.

 

If you combine three parts of the building without extra blocks in  the middle, you get 60 flats in total, all with furniture and lights.

It's my first building, so.. Should I upload the files in tbx or tmx format?

Alright, so, I saved the buildings in tbx format. The archive contains three files :

 

Apartment_NW_LEFT_Finished.tbx

 

Apartment_NW_MID_Finished.tbx

 

Apartment_NW_RIGHT_Finished.tbx

 

As follows, "LEFT" is a left edge of a building, "MID" stands for the middle block, you can copy and paste this one as long as you want, and "RIGHT" is the ending, a.k.a the "right edge".

 

To avoid artifacts when combining buildings together (the buildings collide and a line of wall dissapears in the middle), I'd advice placing the apartment starting from "RIGHT" and all the way down to "LEFT". That way walls don't seem to collide, glitch or dissapear.

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/avq8oj2vgjjfa83/NW%205%20storey%20Apartment.rar - link to the file, you can use the building in your maps as much as you want, just make sure not to claim it as your own, and I'll be fine :P

If someone can successfully import these buildings into Project Zomboid and run around inside of them, please let me know. This drives me insane, as doesn't matter what I try (including advice from Lemmy earlier in map tools thread), they just refuse to appear in actual Zomboid :(

Fixed the "red rooms" bug when viewing buildings in .lotpack viewer (Saw easypickins reply to someone about it in the other thread, and figured that my buildings need fixing). It seems like I forgot to rename a couple of rooms appropriately.

 

Now it's fixed, and (supposedly) should spawn loot in all rooms now. Don't take my word for it though, as I still-can't-figure-out-how-to-add-them in the game. q.q
