FarmVille Pic of the Day: TsubasaM's Farmhouse Illusion
TsubasaM is back with yet another FarmVille Pic of the Day. Though his last featured farm was very impressive, this indoor farmhouse illusion might be even better. TsubasaM showed us something new with his epic island resort, but this is something I'm sure most FarmVille players haven't seen before.
TsubasaM's indoor perspective gives us city-dwellers an idea of what it's like to be out in the country. Gazing out those big windows at endless sky, green fields, and trees is enough to make a man yearn for simpler times (or do something interesting with our own FarmVille farms). Also note how TsubasaM put up some picture frames in his house of crop mastery signs and barnyard animals. Very creative TsubasaM, and congratulations on having two featured farm designs!
TsubasaM sat down to explain this second featured farm design:
What inspired your creative farm design?
I was thinking of creating an illusion of being inside a house with windows that looking at good scenery of farms. I grew up on a farm and I would spend time by the window admiring the scenery, which gave me the idea of creating that concept.
Do you have any awesome decorating tips to share?
When you think of a design for your farm, make an outline or sketch first on how you want it to look. Then just give it a try on your farm. Just use a portion of your farm to try a bit of your design.
When I started my EC farm, I deleted my plots and at the top of my farm, I tested how I could accomplish the illusion of a wall. I went on to try the frame for the window and picture frames on the wall. I started with using hay bales but realized it would take hundreds to accomplish the look I wanted. So, realizing it would be quicker and more affordable, I switched to using fences. It's all about trial and error and most of all, patience.
How did you create the wonderful crop and hay bale art? Was it difficult?
It wasn't difficult at all. I knew exactly how I wanted it to look. I just keep testing portions of my design to see what would work well. At first I wanted to create the illusion of my wall using plots. I tested it at the top corner of my farm to see if it was do-able, but I failed, so I decided to use hay bales. That didn't go well because I didn't have enough patience to go through that many hay bales. I could accomplish a more beautiful wall with hay bales, but using fences could give me that with just a little bit of a problem with the corners being slightly off.
How long did it take you to complete the design?
The EC farm took about 4 or 5 hours to finish the whole design. I knew exactly how I wanted it to look so it was a lot quicker to do [than my other island farm] and spent some time in refining the design to make sure the fences were aligned correctly.
