Tak is a pagoda inspired by a roof style found from the south pacific to south-east asia.

It's my first attempt a thatch-style roof (without custom rooftiles). Although the lot is 3x4, it's a small house, in terms of living space: A single largish room, which you can subdivide a little, but I wouldn't count on housing a big family here. I'd say one impoverished fisherman and his wife. Impoverished by the mortgage, if you ask me: Tak costs $78,148.

I've tried a new technique to try to deal with the unfortunately transparent underside of floor tiles: A grid of low walls used basically as a truss roof. Check it out and tell me what you think.

Tak is part IX of the Shozen series. Check out my profile for the other parts.

* No EP required
* Hack-free
* My Ultimate Architecture Tutorial can be found here
* To run this house on your machine, and to build interior walls, you need to install the Unleveled Walls by Numeror (Praise be his name!) These walls are not a normal install: They don't go into the regular downloads folder. Read Numeror's instructions and do not use Qxpress to install the walls.

* Tak uses Targa's Designer LadderStairs

Let me know how you like it, give me thanks if deserved. And if you really like it, please give it a good rating. But most of all, if you use it in the game, please do post a screenshot or two here. I'd love to see what you do with it.
