Expo Station, the "city hall" of Wonder World, gets ready to open.



Large images from around the park are projected above the information kiosks.

This looks incredible. I love the way you blend the in-game facilities into your areas because the ATMs really look good in the Expo Station. I am sure these are being used as kiosks for guests, so it is very creative. Well done!

I modeled this after the old Earth Station at Epcot Center, which used to be in the building beneath Spaceship Earth. But I think that was before your time. ;)


From Wikipedia
Earth Station
The original post show for Spaceship Earth was called Earth Station. It lasted from 1982 until 1994. It was a wide open exhibit space that included:

EPCOT Center Guest Relations
Seven large rear projector screens mounted on the walls of the exhibit space toward the ceiling that displayed visual previews of various EPCOT Center attractions.
WorldKey Information: Interactive kiosks that offered previews of various EPCOT Center attractions. Guests could also talk to a live cast member via two-way closed-circuit video, or make a restaurant reservation while in the park.

The use of that ridge piece! Love it. Has a very modern feel to it, almost too modern for what I know about Epcot (first visiting WDW in 63 days YAY!). Also, it's very dark in there. Maybe light it up a bit more?

Construction has once again resumed on Wonder World. A new area of Catfish Cove is well under way.

This partially answers Jay's question, way back in July. ;)

The netting really completes this scene; without them it just wouldn't have the same impact. I also like the moss hanging down from the tree.

Thanks for the nice comments and sorry for the delay in replying. Real life sh*t has gotten in the way of progress, but work on this hasn't stopped...just slowed down a bit.



The Rocky River Row Boats will soon be opening in Catfish Cove.

Yes, I've given up waiting, even though I'm sure they could do it fairly easily. Maybe they will in the future and I can swap the faux version for a working version. That is, if they don't have some oversize loading station making it impossible to fit the space.

That's my fear as well.  Love that area shyguy.  Is that green tree one you made?  Looks like the green bush rotated and added to a standard tree?  Looks fantastic and is a nice contrast to the others.

Well, if they do it as a flat instead of a coaster/track ride, then the platform wouldn't be nearly as much of  an issue.  I can a boat ride as a modified bumper cars where the boats wander around somewhat randomly and then return to the dock.  Which would be the platform.

Anyway, that's a very attractive water hole :)

Yes, I created the tree exactly the way you described.

I like that PC is giving you a chance to build this park in a real-world-esque landscape, complete with mountains and vistas in all directions.  Catfish Cove is one of the best lands to showcase the beauty of nature that this game can provide, and you're taking advantage of that nicely.

Sorry for the real life stuff.  But really dude, this is your website, I think you should be allowed to say "shit" here.

All on those pics looks so fantastic! The tree looks so natural, I even didnt notice first. It was just there where it belongs... Then I read the comments and took a second look. Man was I thrilled to see how you built that! It looks amazing!

It's supposed to be a Weeping Willow. There's several others near the Plantation Restaurant, which I showed quite a while ago, but no one seemed to notice them then.

This made me laugh. And cheered me up a bit. :)

Thanks. :) Here's a few more pics...



The entrance bridge to Catfish Cove from Alpine Village is complete.



A view of Rocky River from beneath the bridge. The row boats will soon be traversing these waters.



A panoramic view of Rocky River and Catfish Cove. The Row Boat ride, along with the rest of Catfish Cove, should be opening soon. (I'm not sure how much longer you'll be able to see Expo 3000 in the background, as the lands will most likely soon be split into separate maps.)

Love that last shot. Its really starting to come together shy. And really enjoy the simplicity of everything. Sometimes you get caught up in layer after layer but simplicity is sometimes best.

Been gazing at that last photo, especially the bridge, wondering how much was in game pathwork and how much was you creating from scratch....

Very photogenic landscape and atmosphere!
If it doesn't include either Roller coasters, Music or Hockey... count me out....
