Absolutely incredible! Of course filling the map means this project is massive and I wanna say congrats on that because that is absolutely insane! Well done!  :D

WOW! You should be knighted for this amazing achievement, sir. It's not even as if you filled space with mediocre filler to "make up the numbers". Every inch of this park is beautifully crafted and expertly executed and has come from such an amazing imagination. Your sleep must be blessed with beautiful, colourful dreams, my friend, to have pulled all of this wonder out of your mind

I go through these pics, looking at the incredible detail, and I wonder if even my new supercomputer will be able to handle this monster!

Bravo, sir! Can't wait!

The milestone isn't that the map is full, the milestone is that the map is full of all that great stuff ;)

I don´t know what I can say about this masterpiece than it´s AAAAALLLL perfect!
You´ve out-done your self with this project! This is some kind from outta space...I must see all by myself and see how you´ve done this and that.
Hopefully you will put this on the Workshop soon. :)
I feel happy for you, that you could build on and finish the Kaleidoscope after so many troubles with lag and annoying stuff. You endurance and passion for this project is inspiring and I hope we will see projects like this from you furthermore.

Re: Kaleidoscope Piers: zipline and overall shots

Thanks so much, guys!  I keep thinking of little things to add.  I just added a zip line ride that goes from one pier across the water to another.  And it's only a ten to fifteen dollar upcharge.  What a deal!   ::)





Nice views from the top too!





I am ATTEMPTING a fireworks show next...but I am not looking forward to wrestling with the sequencer.

For now, here is the whole shebang so far and some beauty shots.

My favorite pic is that night shot of the wooden coaster all stretched out along the pier. :)  I never realized before just how striking it looks all lit up at night, with the reflection in the water.

A zipline...  brilliant idea for an addition, and executed marvelously.  You, sir, do not take shortcuts. [We are SO different that way]   :P :P :up:

What did you use for the actual zip cable?  I don't see the usual clutter from the in-game pieces...

I used them on my telephone poles in the town too.

Its just an absolutely amazing fantastic project, looking soo good!!! I so much love the mix of these amazing surroundings with the village, the perfect created hotels and the beach vibe and then this breathtaking pier amusement park in the front featuring all those crazy, amazing detailed attractions and scenery. The map and scenes are so full of life and color. Just by looking at those pics I get that lovely stomach feeling of big anticipation for going to the park tonight... Simply perfect!!! :)

Thank you!

So, I made a fireworks display.  VERY simple and short...mostly for background pictures.  ha ha.  The fireworks are launched from a platform out off the end of the central pier connected back to the pier by an L-shaped jetty.







The control booth:





VIP Seating at the end of the pier:



Once the Ghostbusters set comes out tomorrow, I'll probably be reworking the facades of some of my buildings across the street from the park.  In the mean time, I've been busy packaging up the billboards and custom sounds for the release.

"Ooh! Ahh!" (I'm watching the fireworks :D)  It's nice that you have guys in the control booth doing all the programming and launching so you don't have to do it. Piece o' cake! :P

Seriously though, I didn't think there was anything that Kaleidoscope Piers didn't already have; and yet you keep finding more neat stuff to add. :)

When he gets down to "...and a partridge in a pear tree", I think that's when the park will be released, as Nemmie guessed earlier. Either that, or the park BLOWS UP!  when the countdown reaches zero.

I'm so glad I don't have to work on Saturday.  I have this feeling that I may need a few free hours.

Really nice beat-up old postcard, Fisherman. Did you do the rips and tears, etc. yourself? I went back (to page 22, I think) and watched the video of the Old Mill. Wow. As JP noted then, the opening sequence- transitioning from 'old footage' to present day was a joy to watch. And I too recognized the "Summer" theme from RCT. I also recognized the "Ragtime" theme, but couldn't place where I'd heard it before.

Thanks!  Yup.  I added all the weathering and tears and stains in Photoshop.    :D
