So Mod Osbourne is probably going to hate me, but I think Camelot should feel more like an actual town instead of just a castle.



In the picture, I've moved the church & farmers house, + added a couple of extra buildings for Seers Village. I then had room to add a dividing wall an extra path, and some buildings / market stalls for Camelot.

A spinning wheel could be added to the farmers house, so flax spinning would stay roughly the same distance from a bank. A few extra yew trees could be added to make up for moving the church.

I feel silly asking but isn't Sinclair Mansion a part of Seer's Village? are there any plans to update that with the graphical update or would there be plans to update it at a later time? Co-Leader of S S Infinity
What did you think was going to happen?

I disagree with the concept of Camelot being a town.

The way I always saw it, Seers Village is a part of Runescape. King Arthur was merely displaced and ended up in Runescape. I think moving buildings into the castle area takes away from the established village of Seers.

Omg ! I really like it and it's just early ''stage''.

The Graphical rework give a plus in the game and it's feel 10x better, with big castle etc.
Hope you will update the dirt pass too ;p

I feel that Varrock don,t need to be updated right now and Kelda' too.
They did Port Sarim/Falador/Taverley and after that Catherby, and now Camelot/Seer's. It would be more logical if they do Ardougne/Yanille after that.

They are one of the oldest city in RS and they have 2008 graphic.. It's ugly as $%?&*
Varrock is a little bit updated, I don't feel that the case of varrock is urgent compared to this 2 city.

Now this is the kind of rework I like to see!

I loved Catherby and White Wolf; The RS world has always been a little too "flat", and some of these town layouts really show their age compared to the sort of creativity and design you guys are able to utilize with new areas these days.

(Whether that's just due to new tools, or due to new staff along the way as well, kudos.)

I'd take this kind of rework over a vague reskin any day. (Heh... No offense about Fally. I know it was a big city with a lot of content attached. But still... I'd have liked it to get something more. :/)

I'm really glad you're working on another graphical rework ^o^

As an early poster remarked, Seers' Village should feel like a village of seers, not a generic village. I hope you can make good on that!

Extremely important question. With the completion of the Seers Village Hard Tasks, you are able to move the Camelot Teleport to the middle of Seers Village. Currently it is in a very beneficial location, which is near equal distance between the Hops Patch, and the Seers Village bank, as well as being a very quick way to access the Catherby Allotment Patch.

With this graphical rework, where will you place it so that it is in just as beneficial a position as before?

He was displaced sure but he's as much a part of Runescape as Seers village is.

I didn't move buildings into the castle area, I added new ones.:P

Making it a small town would help seperate it slightly from seers village. Giving them more defined borders, would benefit Seers Village. Least I think so.

But I'm alright with whichever route the Ninjas take, posted an alternative because they were asked for.:P:)

.


King Arthur and his knights got the castle from the Sinclair family when they came to Runescape. It's not like Arthur owns any lands or rules anyone in Runescape. I really don't think it'd make much sense for it to be a town of its own.
