I would also like to see more packs directly related or tied to KITBASH, environments particularly…
One of things sellers assume is that end-users are going to seamlessly integrate an environment.
But the reality is, if they could do that they probably already have the chops to make similar packs.
It takes ‘real skill’ to integrate packs into existing work, and make them look like they belong there.
That’s why the marketplace is a bore, there aren’t enough hybrid packs that offer benefits like this.
Or content that has customization tools built-in to help you integrate packs, as it’d really add value.
Real-world cities often integrate Asian architecture or temples next to Western buildings next to Italian restaurants…
And guess what, it just works…
The human brain doesn’t register its all wrong / can’t happen. It just works. But how to replicate that in virtual cities?
There is a hands-off approach taken by MP creators such as: ‘Well, here it is, my latest environment… Now its your problem to try and integrate it into your own work’. Whereas, it’d be nice to have the option to pay more and have creators take a different approach like: ‘its our job as creators to help you integrate this into your own work. So here’s some tools to help’… Or ‘here’s our price list to help you with custom tweaking if you need it’.
But the marketplace never expanded to that sadly… Sorry if this sounds harsh… But there’s such a lack of ambition on the marketplace, its a crime… A lot of it stems from creators feeling trapped and thinking ‘Well I have to price this @ 10 / 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 USD / EUR in order to sell anything. So I may as well just create another factory building or rundown zombie apartment, as that will definitely sell, right’??? Its kinda sad… Epic promised more… :p**
