Frequently Asked Questions
I am a 3D print shop/print service and want to sell models from the Townbuilder- how does licensing work?
After the Kickstarter is fulfilled, we plan on opening up a Patreon were we distribute models on a monthly basis. This is were you will also find a merchant tier.
This will include all released models and the license to sell our prints for the month you supported us.
So a fixed price for as many sales as you can muster.Last updated:
Once assembled we will provide you with one STL-File for every story of your building. That means you will be able to swap stories around and have a nice and playable interior.Last updated:
This is the 60k stretch goal and has been unlocked. You can decide which parts should be connected and which should not be.Last updated:
This is also one of the problems that we have in the backs of our minds, but to present to you an Open Beta it was not at all a priority on our schedules. We have a couple of ideas both for pegs and magnet holds and they will be implemented since we planned on doing this as an early Stretch Goal.
This stretchgoal was reached, we will add a PEG and Magnet system to our models!
You will be able to choose where those will be placed on your finished buildingLast updated:
But we love the idea! So once the Townbuilder is save and sound, we will get back to that!Last updated:
Yes, if nothing goes wrong, you will be able to use the Beta accounts in the normal Townbuilder.Last updated:
All unlocked set themes will be voted by the community, we will give you guys access to a poll where you can vote for the theme you would like to see modeled for the Townbuilder.Last updated:
The current plan looks somewhat like this:
> Get the Townbuilder Web App finished with all features
> Get the Townbuilder usable on Mobile devices
> Talk about possible offline Solutions
So currently no, but we would like that to be an option in the future!Last updated:
We don't currently plan on allowing user-submitted designs into our system.
Our system of models is pretty complex and, for a lack of a better term, fragile.
If each model isn't positioned and offset 100% correctly, and we are talking about pixel perfect here, the whole thing comes crashing down and buildings won't be printable anymore.
We would absolutely LOVE for this to be possible, but I hope you understand that our first step is to get the Townbuilder steady and production ready before allowing users to introduce models into the system.Last updated:
In the BackerKit surveys, also known as late pledges, you will be able to pay with Paypal. Just wait until a few days after the campaign closes.Last updated:
In this Kickstarter, we offer you unlimited access to our editor the Townbuilder, and the Sets (Models for the Townbuilder, essentially individual building blocks) that come with your individual pledge. As long as this project is alive, you will be able to build with what models you have and generate STL-Files for the buildings you made. There is no extra fee here. You pay for access to the software, once.
In the future, we will provide more Sets to broaden the usefulness of the Townbuilder, and you will be able to get access to these Sets either in our Store or by supporting us via Patreon.Last updated:
