Residential (low) - UK Terrace #1 (Level 1 -5)

Description
This is my attempt to address all the previous problems I've have had getting my house assets to spawn correctly.

This theme covers one type of low residential house based on my previously uploaded Stone Terraced House asset.

Please subscribe to all assets in my 'Residential (low) - UK Terrace #1 (Level 1 -5)' collection http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=539384551 for this theme to work.

It includes a variety of plot sizes including 1x2, 2x2, 3x2 and 4x2 plus a 2x2 corner. I have restricted the plot depth to 2 for visual consistency and to allow each zoned area to develop in a similar way.

Each asset size has versions from level 1 to 5 to allow the district to level up and still remain as one house type. This is something which is perculiar to terraced areas and will help to make the residential areas more realistic.

I suggest that the smallest zone size should be a 4x4 square as smaller areas seem to spawn corner assets anywhere (not sure why this happens), and these areas don't look realistic. (see image)

I haven't used the prop variabilty option as I find it far too difficult to use when creating so many house variations. However, each asset has a variety of props used for the gardens allowing for a good variety when they spawn. In addition, each level has (or can have) different gardens which will add to the variety.

Most assets don't use colour variation as that is built into the sets of houses. Variation is set into the 1x2 single assets to alter the door colour.

Each asset has an lod which includes specularity and illumination.

Subscribe to all of the props in my 'Macwelshman's Asset Props' collection http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=537408361 for the gardens to work properly.

I will eventually create further themes for my other terraced, semi-detached and detached house assets. As I add more assets to each house type I will create additional themes that allow levelling up from one asset to another.

Eventually I see each theme working together to create more dynamic and controlled districts.

Please try this theme out and let me know how it works for you. If there are any problems let me know in the comments below so I can make any changes before I go ahead and create further themes and their assets.

Welcome back! I haven't played my British city in a while - might be time to take another look at it!

I have been out of the loop for a while but may start adding some new and updated assets soon. I'm thinking of recreating some of my houses with built in fences/hedges/walls and sheds and garages. I don't know about you, but I sick of having to load so many 3rd party assets just to get buildings to look good. I'm hoping this will reduce the load on the FPS - assuming I make them as efficiently as possible.
Let me know what you think.

Thanks for your support, I'm working on the other assets but it's quite a task to get them all done.

Works fine for me. It would be great to have the rest of your houses working again, I miss them in my city they are awesome assets!

Seems to work fine for me. Thanks!

Thanks! I was playing around with the layout and found it's possible to plop trees between the gardens even when they are up next to each other. It adds a bit more variety.
