That carousel is gorgeous at night :love:

Though I think I'm almost more impressed by how clean the entrance dome for it is.

The front entrance pictures look great. That carousel cover is really clever.

Very beautiful, definitely ;)  I didn't think you could improve on this area, but damn if you didn't.

Glad that you are back, everything looks fantastic! I especially like how you kept it easy on the lighting rather then over doing it. Well done.

You guys are too kind. Thanks for all the encouragement. Keeps me going. And now......since I played PC until 4am......bad life choices.....here's an overview of where the park stands now.....and......a teaser of things to come!

I was gawking at that overhead shot of the plaza for ages. God, there is so much to look at. I can see flavours of French, Spanish and Victorian-American influence in the architecture. I can imagine walking in and being overwhelmed by the amount of stuff to look at.
And as for worrying about theming the rest of the park, I wouldn't worry. Just take it one step at a time. Also the rides and the landscape can inspire a theme. Just have a good look around and spend a bit of time in there and you'll be brimming with ideas.

That mix reminds me of the uptown parts of New Orleans, an artifact of many changes of ownership over the area.  Lux spent some time there recently.  I wonder if that's where he got the ideas?

It's quite possible I did subliminally get inspired by my five months in New Orleans. Hadn't thought about that, but it makes sense.

the overview shot looks really cool.
i have just a "small" critique. Your carousel is so well detailed, with its surrounding, but the ground texture looks a bit flat. if you just add another grass texture on it, in my eyes it would look way better, and maybe some more flowers or small grass folliage. the rest looks great :)

Very intriguing.  I see a bunch of suspiciously roofless buildings in the overhead view.  But it appears the the stuff  you show in the detail pics are facing away from the camera in that pic, up a bit left of top center.

The detail pics are superb, of course.  I expect nothing less from you ;)

Thanks. Those roofless bldgs are actually "skeletons" that I plunk down and then add to in order to create these bldgs. Just seems faster to be able to drop and drag the bones of a structure where I want it and then decorate accordingly.

This park is definitely unique and looks really fun! I am sure guests will be lining up for many attractions, so I may want to buy a priority pass.  ::)

Howdy. More progress shots...in no particular order. I'm sort of working on all sections bit by bit. My goal with this park is to keep it ecclectic in it's motif and consistent throughout so there won't be specific "lands" so to speak. Anywho......here are the screenies!

That's some very nice architecture but the lighting in the screenshots makes it hard to see the details.

More progress shots. As you can see between the last overview and this one, I've started theming the go karts and am plowing through the lower left side of the park while darting back and forth between other sections as well. It has just dawned on me how absolutely enormous this park is. I still have so many rides to add....yeesh. Anyway, the screens.......

Hehehe, you're the one who laid this whole park out to start with as a challenge to yourself :).

Anyway, those pics show some more of your excellent work.  But they're kinda washed out.  Maybe next time vary the time of day so things appear in their best light.

Good idea about the photos. What do people find is the best time to set for daylight to give the photos their most illustrious appearance?

Looks wonderful!!!  As for lighting images.  9 or 10 am and 3 pm or so are good and provide longer, more dramatic shadows.  And it depends on which side of the building you want to light up.

Well, for daylight pics of buildings, the best time of day depends on a variety of factors, so I find it best to put the camera in the place I want to get the shot I want, then play with the time to get the best lighting for that shot.  I might end up using different times of the day to take pics of the various sides of the same building.

You have to consider the orientation of the building on the map, relative to the path of the sun, and the angle you're looking at the building from.  The south side is illuminated all day, but the light comes at different angles at different times so changes the shadows.  And depending on what the building's made out of, its surfaces might glare at certain times of the day when seen from certain angles.  The north side, OTOH, is always at least partly in its own shadow, although near noon this is minimized.  The east side is illuminated in the morning and shaded in the afternoon, and vice versa for the west side.

Another factor is things near to the building that can cast shadows on it.  This I find particularly annoying because I never consider this when making stuff, and when the light is otherwise perfect for the building, half of it is covered with the shadow of a nearby coaster or something.  But you can usually tweak the time and hour in either direction to fix this and still have pretty good light.

Vacation?  Didn't you spend several months vacationing in "N'Yawlins" ?!?!?!?!?  Geez, you work for a great company.  Are they hiring? :D

Anyway, I really like the new stuff here.  There are some very imaginative/unusual buildings in there that still manage to blend in with the surrounding loveliness in a coherent style without standing out and looking weird.  You'll have to tell me how you do that ;).

Also, much better control of the lighting in the pics ;)
