Your last screenshot looks very Death Star-y to me, wowman. I half-expect to see Luke and Leia swinging through the scene on a cable amidst blaster fire.

I also like your holiday avatar. :up:

Moving onto the pain of this part of the park. My attempt to add a Horror Heights ride. Here is what this area looked like early on in the process. The ride is in, some scenery placed on the load part of the ride. the queue and priority lane are in place. The square pathway pad is where the post ride shop will be located. Timing the triggered events to the ride was very difficult, but it eventually worked out well. My downfall was trying to trigger video screens. Due to lag and especially, when trying to record, the videos were just way off and doors were just not timing correctly when trying to capture it to share with all of you.



Again, a terrible ride name. Here is the entrance to the finished product.

Sorry to hear you are also experiencing the lag bug.  Hopefully the devs will fix it soon!

Your stuff looks fantastic!

Looks great, Wowman!  And I think "Shaft Drop" is actually a good name given that such things happened several times in the movies.

I always like letting the priority and regular queues see each other, so one group can gloat and the other will be encouraged to buy priority passes ;)

Themed queu's  :up:. Great job on this one, themed for top to bottom. I love it.

I always like letting the priority and regular queues see each other, so one group can gloat and the other will be encouraged to buy priority passes ;)

I went to this halloween event once in one of the parks in my country, where the queu times on the rollercoasters where between 100 and 160 minutes. I bought a fastpass, Walking past and seeing all those insane queu's are the best 40 bucks i ever spent. The regular and fastpass queu's were so close we could interact with the folks in the normal queu. (You can imagine what an evil dude like me would do in those scenario's).

One of the scenes. at each stop, I had a door open and played a video scene. Some had real props in front of the video screens as well to try and add some depth to the scene.

THX - I do love those billboards

And here is the video of this ride. You do get a much better perspective on the look and feel of the ride, but I did have a bear of a time recording this. The lag was so bad the syncing of the triggers for the doors opening and the videos playing correctly just didn't work the way it was all timed out playing in the normal game.

I think that looks very good, even with the lag.  I hear making a Horror Heights is a challenging stopwatch and repetitive tweaking pain due to it being a flat ride, so I've never bothered.  But they sure do look cool once you finish them.  Bravo!

BTW, you might want to edit this video a bit.  After the car returns to the station, there's about 30 seconds of black screen followed by a repeat of the clip of Vader throwing a chunk of wreckage down the hall.

Back fresh from a week at WDW. Had lots of fun and got some great looks at Galaxy's Edge going up. Really looking cool.
Moving onto Mustafar...the volcano planet. Here is an overview video of this land.

I feel conflicted about this park coming to an end.  I'm pretty sure I told you this already several pages ago but when I got PC on release and joined the official forum, this was there already in its early stages.  And ever since, it's been a continual source of both inspiration for how to do things right and enjoyment in its own right as if I was a customer.  Things just won't be the same without its frequent updates which have always been part of my PC life.    Still, I must again congratulate you on bringing this epic to a successful conclusion and I look forward to being able to stroll the streets, even at 3 FPS, when you finally upload it ;).

Anyway, I really like the overview video here and thing you've definitely ended on a high note.  The volcanic features are very well-done, as are the buildings.  Can't wait to see more.

Great job on the volcanism in this area. Especially the central volcano as you walk down the main path. I also like the bubbling lava pits next to the flatrides. (A little dangerous though, which I like.) ;)  Seeing the monorail go in and out of the mountain tunnels adds interest to the scene.

It's been a while since I visited this thread, so I had a lot of catching up to do. Those last 3 rides are excellent. Too bad the lag spoils the povs a little. But it doesn't keep them from still looking awesome. I love the Star Wars themed Horror Heights ride. I've never attempted anything with the Horror Heights and doubt I ever will, so I'm always so impressed with those who have the patience to do one.
And the Battle of the First Order was incredible. I loved those huge impressive set pieces, and all the explosions and battles going on all around. Great stuff!

Some random shots of this land from different angles






I really need to get better at pulling my parks into scenario mode and make the landscape outside the park boundaries fit in better and be so abrupt.

I'm thinking the shops should sell BBQ and smoked food ;)  Especially given the proximity to geothermal power.
