thx for all the comments and yes I have a POV coming. I made one but the FPS were terrible, so I'm working on approving this before I post it. I'm creating scaled downed versions of the park with just the land I'm trying to video and some surrounding area to "fake" the look of a full park.
Hope to have it in the next couple days.

I don't know if you've already solved the FPS problem in a different way, but here's a video made by Silvarret on how you can get high FPS even if your game doesn't run that smooth.

I think this worked. Getting that program to install was a bear with all my security software, but finally got through it. I did a test record and the results are very good compared to what I was getting before.

Which was shamelessly cribbed from Lousy Anna :D\


Nearly 50 years ago, there was a persistent urban legend amongst us kids back then that the Spee-lunker's Cave at 6FOT was infested with water moccasins and that some kid dragging his hand in the water had gotten snakebit and died before his boat returned to the station.  Which of course is silly, given that cottonmouths are piscavores and there were no fish in chlorinated Spee-lunker's Cave.  But still.... :D

Still can't believe you built an X-wing that looks like it came with the game.  Amazing.

I've been thinking about this (and the lack of weather options,) and I'm wondering if you set the time of day to something very early in morning or late in afternoon (before night) for your pictures maybe it will look more Dagobah-esque?  The bright sunlight keeps taking me out of the illusion...

Thats not me - I used that from the blueprints way back in the alpha days and I don't have who created it. There are several out there now that look really great.

That looks like such a wonderful place to hunt frogs.  The area should be full of them and the lighting works more in the hunter's favor than the quarry's.  I'm getting hungry just thinking about it ;)

Sneak peek at my Gungan underwater dark ride. Still need to finish all the themeing, but I'm liking the look so far.

Wow, you nailed it.  Even the lighting feels authentic to the film visuals.  I'm not too familiar with the bubble special effect, but maybe it would help sell the underwater aspect a bit.

Sneak peek at my Gungan underwater dark ride......


Was that from the Baby Vader movie, where that hideous thing with the floppy ears and abrasive personality came from?  Egad, I had to spend thousands on shrinks to make me forget that whole thing.  Now you've brought it back.  I'll be sending you a bill :)


But that said, I suppose that makes it an appropriate subject for a dark ride :D

Back to Dagobah...
couple pictures of various shops around this land that I never shared.
Here is a small hat shop tucked away in a corner.



and this is a bit out of place, but hey...who said businesses from one system can't expand into another. This humid hot swamp needed a cool place to relax.

Looks very good! I love how you (maybe accidentally) tried to hide the flume support into a tree in the first picture.  :)

Unlike bullethead, I loooove Jar Jar :D  And I think it's a shame he wont be there ;) That being said, since you dont have other "fake" animatronics, I think it's okay not to have him. I absolutely love the way you created the feel though. Feels SO real. Good job :)

i know having more than scenery would sell it much better. I may add a few of the in game aliens just to make it a bit more interesting

Hoth Ice cream! How creative! I love that idea so much! Digging your park, as you might tell from my username. ;)
Wagibear "It is entirely possible that Atari will attend in a different way than as a exhibitor. Someone may park their van outside the Convention Center entrance with a big Atari RCTw banner draped in the front window.  Or maybe Mattlab will dress in a trenchcoat and approuch anyone with a PRESS badge and whisper  "Psst!  Hey, wanna see a new video game?"... "

Good day to all and to the host of this park.

I can picture the incoming in-vador of AT-AT and AT-ST coming from behind the Hoth Ice Cream stall.

This is the second SW themed oriented park I come across, and must admit that this one is coming together at good pace and with a very good look. Even if the theme is not really original, the park is and is also very inspiring for dedication and hard work.

The Dagobah part is no less than very impressive.

Thank for building this place, very nice.

With your pictures, I am happy every time I get a reference, or I remember an architecture. However your park look maybe a bit too messy to me, the connections between the differents areas are sometimes not clear and too abrupt. Anyway, the theme is original and I still like to follow the park as it grows.
