Destination Xuropa IV

There's a real buzz at Blast Point Resort as the new land finally opens.

Step through the portal and travel to the distant planet of Xuropa IV.
This beautiful planet is the only place where we can mine the mysterious Zoon Crystals that power the portals that make interstellar travel possible.


The entrance arch for the area is a trans-dimensional portal


The arch section can be pivoted away from the array on the left side to allow any heavy machinery or works access through










Looking over the bridge just inside the new area, the early morning crowds explore this new world. (Just ignore the Blast Point Hotel in the background).

Love the Old West theming on the arch. (joking!) Your Portal is just dripping with sci-fi goodness, Nemmie. A very striking and iconic look for guests entering the Xuropa IV area. And the structures beyond the arch look very intriguing indeed.

JB Thanks so much. There's loads to show beyond the portal. Watch this space. And I'm glad I got that Western vibe on the arch totally nailed ;)

Wowman Thank you very much. Unique is exactly what I was going for. I'm so glad you like it

Just inside the entrance arch/ portal, here's what greets you in the morning sun


But we're turning left and going over the bridge

I love your architectural decisions. Like, in the first pic, how part of the roof of that round structure (on the right) sticks up higher than the rest. And how, in the 2nd/3rd image, the bridge railings angle outward rather than straight up. My lizard brain wouldn't think of such things. I also like the orange and blue colors of the bridge supports.

@JB Thanks mate. That round structure was the most difficult thing I've ever built in Planco as it isn't just a simple dome, but blended domes with different circumferences. And that's before we talk about the rest of it. You'll see why when I show it properly. I built it 3 years ago and i still get flash backs.

Just over the bridge a shallow pool with fountains surrounds the plaza


Jutting out of the rocks and crowned with industrial pipes and futuristic technology, a refuelling station welcomes weary space travellers








And opposite, a seating area to relax and enjoy your meal

Lucky guests. They get to live and explore in such a well thought out and interesting environment! That's quite an impressive HVAC system on the "fueling station" roof. The taller element (on the roof) reminds me of Marty McFly's self-lacing sneaker. :D

@wowmanrct  Thanks very much  :D
@JB Thanks. I hope the guests are happy. And as for the Marty McFly thing....LOL! I can't un-see that now

EXTRACTOR

Themed as a huge mining machine drilling into Xuropa IV's crust, EXTRACTOR harvests the precious ZOON Crystals that make interstellar space travel possible






Above the queueline, the control centre hangs, keeping the engineers away from the dangerous ground-tearing equipment

Extractor truly does evoke a mining/tunneling/drilling machine, and very sci-fi. Well done!

This new area is mind-blowing! The style of architecture is so special and unique...just brilliant! The entrance gate is such a wonderful created piece of art. And everything else is just perfect as well...designs, colors, pathcovers, roof shades and the integrated rock themeing is like the whole theme totaly out-standing! Wonderful work, Nemmie!

PORTAL Cafe

@wowmanrct  Thanks man. Very kind words again. I appreciate it very much  :D
@JB Thanks.  I'm really glad it's coming across with the theming. And thanks for the compliments
@zero G  Thanks so much. I've always been a massive fan of your stuff so I'll take all of that a huge compliment


Through the portal and across the stars, Portal Cafe stands as a meeting place and recharging point for hungry galactic explorers.

@jb Thanks mate. The angled pylon also hides the support post for the overhanging deck. I did try it more upright, just to see what it would look like and quite honestly, it looked really boring. The angle kinda made it look more futuristic, streamlined and interesting. And as for eating there, you ain't seen the menu yet  ;)

Here's some more shots of Portal Cafe

The second pic is my favorite today; with the Café framed by the foreground trees. In the next image, I like how the basalt(?) rocks lining the path mirror the angled pylon of the Café.

Thanks @JB. I'd like to sound all arty-farty and say that the rocks mirroring the pylon was a considered choice to be aesthetically appealing, but I'd be talking out of my bum as I'd not even noticed that. Happy coincidence  :D
@Baneif. Thanks very much. I wanted to make my own sci-fi scenery for this area and it all started with a sketch I did of the entrance arch. The rest came off that and evolved into what it is now.

More shots of PORTAL Cafe


On the roof, there's a deck where you can eat and look at the view








And in front, an old mining drill sits amongst the vegetation

What's beyond those orange doors?


The view as you enter






In front of the counter, the staircase spirals up to the door that leads to the roof deck


At night, it has a different vibe


At each side of the counter, there's a touch screen ordering panel for those who want to order their meals direct

Beautiful! The inside is every bit as futuristic as the outside. But it also has a welcoming warmth to it, especially at night. It reminds me of the bridge of a space ship. Love the neon tubing in the stairwell.

Re: Blast Point Resort - Xuropa IV - Information Terminal
« Reply #176 on: November 23, 2021, 08:22 AM »
 @wowmanrct Thanks so much. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out.
@JB Thanks for comparing it to a spaceship. I guess that's a great thing when you're trying to do sci-fi. I had a lot of fun doing the neon in there too.

Information Terminal

Over the bridge from PORTAL Cafe and opposite EXTRACTOR sits the Information Terminal. Guests can buy Fast Passes and Annual Passes, book accommodation for the Blast Point Hotel and even get credits out of a machine on the wall to spend. You can also get information from the friendly staff.










Guests can even climb the stairs to the viewing deck for excellent views across the vistas of Xuropa IV

I love the slanted glass walls of the Information Terminal ("terminal" sounds much more sci-fi than just 'booth'). I noticed there's no overhead lighting/street lights in the park, at least not in the Xuropa IV area. Relying instead on low-to-the-ground path lighting and light given off by the buildings themselves. This also adds to the futuristic look of the park.
