    it's not really designed for much rooftop action,but it has the basics.

    Stefan,

    Can I ask are the buildings seperate objects?  Can they be moved around like the ones in the Streets of Old London set?   I note that the water plane seems to extend under most of the scene. The possibilities for kit bashing with the three Village Courtyard sets are almost endless.

    This one is now top of next week's shopping list. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

    Cheers,

    Alex.

     

    Yes; you can move the buildings

  • I've added to my Stonemason collection in a major way!  Picked up Streets of Tuscany and cleared out some of Stonemason's back catalog on my wishlist.  Saved a lot and got lots of great products so it is a good day!

    I just bought this. I haven't really tried to use something like this before. Do you have to load the entire set, if you are going to do a close up in front of one of the buildings?

  • cherpenbeckcherpenbeck Posts: 1,347

    Fantastic. Already bought it. Glad it's not encrypted, as I will continue to work with 4.8.

    Did I mention it's fantastic?

    in cart and bought as soon as I saw it.  I have really got to stop looking. Just...need to stop lol.

    Sonja, I tried to stop looking in the store.  It was actually getting easy because some of the promos just do not do justice to some of the products, but then I come to the forums and everyone else's renders sell me on more products!

    edit to add: Not saying Stonemason's products do that, though.  His promos are always top notch!

    I just got this set and I love it , for Iray materials there need to be done some adjustments as couple of the building walls ( the glossy roughness is too low resulting in wet glossy effect when the light hit by the angle , and also some parts are too dark bellow the normal brightness but easy to set back to 186 -50) and definitely water shader is too heavy will slow down the rendering a lot and not really needed  , so here my spin video in Iray using this set , I played for over 2 hours ..here shorter version just click the image bellow

    Perfect! Insta-buy because this is pretty much the setting I was looking for as part of a project I'm working on. heart

    (Though now my budget for this month is almost used up.... crying Why is there still so much month left at the end of the money?!)

    Fantastic render, Erik. You've set a very high standard for the rest of us to beat.

    Thanks guys! But of course 99% of that praise should go to Stonemason.

    Here's another Octane for DAZ Studio render, using the same settings, from a different viewpoint and a wider camera angle (28mm).

    Cheers!

    We actually have some buildings that seem influence by that type of architecture here.  Enjoying my second year of completely free of snow and freezing temperatures here in FL.  I see where it is being very brutal in the north we abandoned for the sunny south.  I haven't had a chance to render this since I downloaded it.  Hopefully, my current render will be done soon so I can play with all of my new Stonemason goodies.  Maybe tomorrow.

  • Utterly stunning, as always with Stonemason, but I can't help noticing that the "Streets of Tuscany" don't appear to include any actual streets...

  • StonemasonStonemason Posts: 1,073

    yea I wouldn't take the names of my sets too literally,I'm pretty lazy at naming these things :),it could just as easily have been called 'environment#0172'

    Great renders showing up here,love that series of images from Mec4d! and nice one from erik in Octane!

  • StonemasonStonemason Posts: 1,073

    looks awesome, your twin Ttans seem to render a bit faster than my twin titans :\
