Headed back out the other way, you can go up the ramp behind the stadium to get to the main stadium entrance.



Here is this area from above. I added a dashed line to show the direction of travel...from Mos Eisley at the bottom...and from the canyons at the top. Don't forget about that back door walkway I added as well to alleviate congestion in this area.


And when you enter the stadium you get this view

I love all the narrow alley ways and passages through the rocks.  Really cool!

Is there somewhere you can get a piece count from?

Zoom way out so you can see the whole park in only part of your screen.  Then go to the bottom right corner and get the Area Select tool, same as if you were making a blueprint containing multiple things like buildings, scenery, and rides.  Having that, drag a box around the whole park, then look in the box in the upper right showing what's you've selected.  That'll give you the part count.

Wow - I had no clue you could even select that much at once, even to get a count. I will go do that  right now and post the results.

So, it took over 10 minutes for the selection to finish counting and display the number. I thought for sure the game was going to crash, but the pointer was still movable, so I knew it was doing something. as it stands right now...61,349 pieces. Phew.

Geez.....  I did this for Quarantine Island and it was "only" about 38K parts, so yeah, that's a lot :)

That is just breathtaking! Wonderful work!

Having never seen that movie (seen most of them, just not #1 - Number 4, damnit!!!) is that what the stadium looks like?

Well, I am about 1/3 done with Coney Island, and I am at 61,219. Have to wonder where Derek and shyguy are.

(Sorry to hijack your thread, I just thought that was pretty cool!)

Yikes. I'm about 85-90% done with this park at that count

I couldn't make is as grand as the real thing and I am somewhat limited to what my building skills are...so I basically just used the original as inspiration. Here is a shot from the film.

Yours looks terrific! The scale of the movie set would dwarf the rest of your park. Great job capturing the spirit of the stadium.

Wow!  Nifty racing stadium with some very complex path-work!  Can't wait to ride it ;).

BTW, I always thought it was a bit silly that they had such a big grandstand at the starting line in the movie, given that 99% of the race was way out in the desert where the fans couldn't see it from the stands.  Your smaller version seems more appropriate, leading folks to the assumption that the other seats are at places out in the desert where there are more likely to be wrecks :)

I feel you are nailing the details given the constraints the game has. The entire park and every concept is brilliant!

Scaling everything down was a good move. Everything fits in fine and works well.

Looking the other way now



A weird creature I tried to make


The coaster stations and queues are in the 'hidden' building at the end of the main concourse.



Zooming out a bit



And zooming out even more to show a full overhead of the stadium. The building on the left is the coaster stations and queues, hidden by rock work and billboards.

Wow, I'm just starting to realize that you've got billboards EVERYWHERE in this.  And they work so well!  That's really clever!  Awesome stadium, too, especially how the peeps can actually walk around in it.

And the critter looks cute ;)

Confession. There is really only one core path through the stadium...enter...go down one side of the stands...cross over the bridge...go down under the stands along the concession concourse and into the pod racer garage. all the other guests in the stands are on individually placed path pieces, with 'placed' guests that are now 'stuck' on that path/location. It was the only way I could get some people in the stands. I did most of this before the Studio Pack that had all the variations of people. I originally had pirates and Sci-Fi animations, but the pattern was too repeated, so I came up with the stuck guest idea. This is why they are so scattered as it was very difficult to try and place multiple path pieces around without them trying to automatically connect and then I couldn't hide them as easily.

Well, there's nothing wrong with a little hostage-taking, especially near Jabba's palace ;)

Besides, it looks like they're cheering :)

Under the main grandstands are some vendors where you can get food and drink.






Down under here you can also access the ground level viewing window
