Dark Elf Dwelling

Adds a Dark Elf Dwelling into the game, as specified on the Wiki:

Now the dwelling model has been updated. You can update mid-game without any issues (Tested). However, if you're playing a form of multiplayer, you need to update all together.

Warning: This is an alpha version. The newer models for the units haven't been included yet. Please report any bugs you find. I'm making subthreads for bugs and balance consideration seperately.

It spawns in the RMG, but only on the underground layer. It's not guaranteed to spawn, so don't complain if it doesn't.

I currently don't have a compatibility patch with my own Mystical Dwelling Upgrades, and I didn't want to force the functionality. Perhaps in the future.

Q: Why a Dwelling, and not a race ?
A: Because:
1) Lore. Most Dark Elves mended into the High Elves, so they're very rare. The only group currently present on Athla we know of is led by Hester, and we haven't heart anything about them. They're in hiding, and they're good at it. This is also a reason they dislike surface climes and the dwelling only spawns underground.
2) Work: To implement a full race, you need a lot of new models. This is a lot of work, and since i'm completely ignorant of how to do it myself, I have to ask others to do it for me. Since both my and their standards are high, it's just not going fast.
3) Time: I also got a lot of other stuff to do.

Thanks to Charlatan for the included dwelling model, and the models of the units that I haven't included yet.

Dude, fuck this shit. You obviously don't give a fuck about AoW lore as long as it doesn't obey whatever you want it. Goodbye.

Haven't tried it yet. Cheers

Its intended that the walls kind of match the dark rocks - after all, the flavor is that they're hidden underground. The waterfall...I kinda like it that way. Might be right with the pink globe tho.

Anything gameplay related, or not played it that much yet ?

OK thanks. Well first of all I respect your hard work, but since you asked I will tell you what I think.
The pink globe on top needs improvement. It is way too big and looks like a blooming flower.
Color contrast is poor and walls do not separate visually from dark rocks. Waterfall is interesting conceptually, but there is something in it that makes me thnk it is out of place. I need to look at it more carefully again. I hope this helps.

Well, the visuals and stuff aren't there yet. But if there's some specifics you dont like, feel free to post them. Perhaps I agree.

Am I the only one that doesn't like it?

Awesome looking dwelling model indeed :) Great work

High elves are much closer to wood elves than to dark elves IMO. And we have no lore reason to assume there's wood elves that didn't mend.

So no, that's not in the planning. Also, wood elves don't have as much of the units im missing with the dark elves.
