If the hotspot is moved further away then the building overlaps with the surrounding roads and flags. There's not much space left there:

Tell me if this fixes things; if this doesn't work, I may have to shrink the building (which would mean redoing the fully constructed version).

EDIT: To clarify, current sizes are 0.15, 0.3, 0.6, and 1.2; if I shrink it, sizes will be 0.125, 0.25, 0.5, and 1.0. If that's too small, then I'll have to make new versions of the building for the next release

Hm, with this comparison I actually think the one in master looks better. There the builder stands on the mattress, now he seems to be dangling in the air:

I think further shrinking wouldn't be good, the building and especially the door is already very small in height compared to the workers. I think we should leave it as in master, but let's wait for further opinions…

Maybe move the ladder to the place where the builder is working? So the builder visually "stands" on the ladder.

The people are too big relative to the building, so making it shorter top-to-bottom is a no-go. I'll make a usable version in time for the June 8th deadline, then a better version after it.
I tried scaling up the ladder (and removing a couple steps); I should have a usable version within the next hour or two (hopefully much less).

EDIT: Yeah, there's no way of making the current version work, not even removing the front wall. I'll have to shrink it (horizontally, not vertically), but I'm sure I can do it.

EDIT 2: Bang, zoom, smaller building.

Any objections?

The fully finished version should be redone within the next few hours.

Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away, a time-traveling barracks fell on both Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader. Alderaan survived unharmed, but Rian Johnson became the new Sith Lord. Here are some images of the barracks:






It's still a better story than The Last Jedi.

EDIT: I should mention that the construction and finished version aren't 100% lined up if you use the same hotspot (see the first image on this page); you'll have to move one of them up or down a couple pixels.

Two days remain, which is more than enough to finish phase 1. But the deadline grows close, so any comment should be prompt!

The prompt for a prompt comment results in a comment that this looks very good face-smile.png
