Heading back down street two for a bit. I cut a hole in the walls that Sdanwolf made on this street to access an unused area behind the street and added this indoor market/eating area.



I wanted to still have the over all look and feel of the streets out side, but I raised the ceiling up a bit to give it more of an open air look.



There are a couple of places to get refreshments, or go to the bathroom, or shop inside this building.

Nice blending of the new food court into the rest of the place.  And while it does blend in perfectly, it still somehow, despite all that's gone before, have enough detail differences to be its own thing.  How did you manage that?  I'd have been out of ideas for variations on this theme long since :D

I just start clicking on stuff until it looks like it fits in. :)

That's my patented excuse as I have no talent.  You need to do better than that ;)

I may have said it before, but I feel like we've watched your own skills come along greatly since this project started.  Dagobah and Endor were mostly nature based and didn't require this level of detail, but now each shot is literally just (pardon the word choice) wow, man! 

So much quintessential SW themery going on here.  One of the most inspiring scenery uses I'm seeing is the upside down staircases to create the perfect SW archway.

Amongst all the (good) clutter and detail in this alien/Star Wars-y marketplace, the restroom sign stands out like a universal beacon. :D (To us humanoids, anyway.) Good job on this, wowman.

Build A Blaster sounds fun. I hope it is not a security issue.  ;) Overall, I always get excited to see your posts.

@Cody, I wouldn't worry about the blasters.  They're harmless to everybody except stormtroopers ;)

Moving back outside...and jumping back to the Hub area...when you past through the hub from either of the streets, you enter the plaza area. Here is the view as you enter from the hub.
Thats the entrance for the queue for Battle of the First Order on the left.

Here is a rotunda-type building I made. Nothing special as far as game play goes...just an empty place for the guest to cool off. Although, I do like the way it turned out.



There is a small food court and restrooms on this side of the plaza



Arched doorways that will lead to other areas of the park



Closer view. The exit on the left will lead to a third street that we will look at later, to the right will lead to the interior of the Death Star section of the park

While I am no Star Wars fan ( I know...heresy!), the level of creativity and detail in this park is astonishing. I am amazed by some of the wonderful ways you use the assets to create such an incredibly immersive experience. Really well done. It's gorgeous!
I think like I live like I work like I love.....voluminous and disjointed. Get used to it.

I'm always amazed at how well you capture the look and feel of the Star Wars universe. This is not an exact re-creation, which is good IMO. When people try to make exact copies of real-world parks/rides/movies, it (almost) always comes up short due to the limitations of the game engine and available content, no matter which game you're playing.

I guess the secret to making a Star Wars park is to just throw everything ya got at it. And arrange it all so that it looks like it serves some sort of purpose. :up:

That round building is so perfectly done I can't see any facets on it.  How you do that?

They're there if you look close. Just a bunch of temple pieces fit together.

Nicely done with the forced perspective.  I've never really tried that.

The night lights looks great.  But in the last pic, you might want to adjust the way the plants clip through the porch roof in the right side of the screen.

BH - I will go back and adjust some of the clipping/bad placement when I have some time. I do get sloppy with that sometimes when I'm tired or don't review everything from every angle.

Thanks for nice comment Lux.

Moving through the Plaza area, there is one last street on the back side of this land. Its basically used to get to Mustafar in the back corner.
There is also a flat ride tucked back in this corner where the queue is accessed from this street.



this street is more like an alley due to my poor path planning as I ran out of room for what should be a wider pathway through this area.
That archway will also lead to the Death Star interior hallways in the next land we will explore.



Same arch from the other side, which will ultimately be the interior of the Death Star.

I think it's good to just an "alley".  All the street vendors and shopkeepers from the other streets have to live somewhere, and this is that place ;)

The fire marshal hopes the fabric awnings just above the torches are made of fire-resistant material ;)

I hope this is one of the most created building pieces in the new toolmaker thingy. I hate making round buildings, but they do look so cool in game.
