    Kyriakos... Cool. This effort can probably be used at this time as there are Space MODs going on now and I am sure others would like to have the Graphics.
    I realize this is a "work in progress"... You might consider metallic structures for colors :)

    Yes, I am not looking at textures at this stage :)

    Here is another idea regarding the form:

    Kyriakos... I like that even better. The more life like textures and the contrast between the Metal and Glass are Great.
    I am certain you will be experimenting and adjusting more but I really like these :clap:

    That would also work. I do like the Green Tinted Glass Dome on Post #7 as it contrasts better and adds a nice touch of different Materials. Guess my mind wants to see Glass and Metal and I really like the Greenish tint of the glass.
    Sort of reminds me of the old Coca-Cola Bottles of yesteryear but also states a material that could be futuristic, although some sort of Translucent Glass.
    The Glass structure would Not have to use the triangular bottom area... that could be Metal. In other words, a Glass Top Dome... or the entire Dome could be Glass all the way to the ground.

    Some changes:



    It isn't near completion - far from it. At least I am starting to get a few decent buildings.

    The Dark Bronze Metal looking structures with light bands around them and the nice highlights along with the Bluish/Green Glass on Post #7 has more of a Space Colony look. The Colors, highlights, Dark Bronze Metal and Bluish/Green Glass help to create a Space Colony Feel. A Smooth Glass Dome also appears more like a structure that would be used in space.

    I realize you are still in progress and experimenting. I would avoid the use of Pretty Pastel Colors as they will create an appearance on an Earth like modern structure.
