Modern PWs, I need you!

I need a modern server who has been accused of looking like Era to help me out. I'm in the works of something and I need a server willing to supply me with screenshots of their server that people have complained look like Era. The payout will be beneficial in yours, and hopefully many other PW's, interest.

I'm looking for screenshots of interiors and exteriors. You can post them here, or in PMs.

Thank you.

I hope to get a fast response, because I really can't finish what I'm doing without these screenshots, and I don't want to just use them without the owners permission.

I'd suggest Graal Ghetto, but Shadow would ban you if you said anything that he deems "negative" about his server (e.g. suggestions).

Interitus was kind of accused of looking like era. But definitely not a full blown era mimic in most peoples eyes. But the style of the tiles, such as roof tiles, flooring wood tiles, carpets, some bricks etc . . .
So if you think you would want to test thi with Interitus looking tiles, I'll post a screenie for you. Let me know

I'm about to go to bed but I'll try to get some screen shots of some stuff that I think is a copy of Era. I'll also supply an example from Era to show you tomorrow :P

One thing I'd like to point out is that it's not just graphics that make servers look like Era. Leveling style has a huge impact.

I saw a huge similarity in the way the floors are done with these 2 screen shots. The one from Era is not the best example but I think it shows.

Lol he banned twinny for logging on and saying something like that, then banned me for not giveing him my Sten on era, and for uploading a video on youtube of him spawning items then selling for Era things.

Seriously people, nobody in real life makes floors like that, so you really shouldn't if you're trying to make an actual modern playerworld. You also don't find such large amounts of unused free space.

And if you have lots of free space you should have support pillars that are semitransparent and only the base is blocking while you can walk under the upper part of the image.

Large buildings have steel frames, do any modern level designers consider this and build around the steel frame?

People do not build rooms with that many corners in them, seriously. When you're making a modern place the room shape doesn't need to be something spectacular, its the content that should be eye-catching.

Sadly, when I made my tutorial I completely forgot levelling tips which included these very things.

I never got that either. I always used to make levels with crazy carpets and random corners in levels, but I stopped. It doesn't make sense. Most buildings on Era are rectangular but then inside you have this:

Exactly, nobody makes rooms like that in real life, it wastes quite a bit of space.

Its possible for interiors in modern Playerworlds to have destructible walls if you do it right. Like how many buildings have your solid outer walls and weaker inner walls that you can bang on it and the whole thing makes noise.
