This just gets even better and better! You have an art for making things look and feel real, the Hayo Inn and Griddle House only add into this "reality factor" and it is just brilliant.  :love:

Thanks, guys!

I added a new hotel across the street from the Hayo Inn Express!  La Planca Inn & Suites!   ;)





















Enjoy your stay!

Ok, seriously with your signage... it's so good I can't stand it.  But if you feel like sharing tips, what format do you save your images in?  The clarity is incredible both in night and day shots.  This is, as always, just fantastic.

Thanks, guys!

JP, I just use that weird profile the devs suggested way back when billboards first came out.
ICC Profile:  sRGB IEC61966-2.1 and I save as a jpeg.  It usually works pretty well.

Can't settle for the free continental breakfast at the hotel?  The Griddle House is too crowded???  No worries!  Head on around the corner to the IHOFT.  The International House of French Toast offers a wide variety of breakfast goodies for outrageous prices.  Fill up on syrup and bacon before enjoying a nice morning riding roller coasters at the park.   :n00b:

I actually chuckled out-loud when I saw the International House Of French Toast  sign and logo. You do have a knack for realistic hotels and restaurants. :)

Thanks, guys!  So I spoofed another real-life restaurant.  Now Planco Beach has its very own Cracker Bucket country store and restaurant!  Enjoy some chicken fried steak and meatloaf and buy a rocking chair or two on your way out as you exit through the gift shop.   :mad:up:

And then we'll have to rent a couple of strollers to lug the rocking chairs around the park for the rest of the day. A win/win for Kaleidoscope Piers; they got us coming and going. :mad:

The Cracker Bucket looks great; very folksy. I wonder if the player pi-ani is for sale, too? (We'd have to rent a whole bunch of strollers to lug that thing around.)

You really captured their standard restaurant look, and all with the in-game pieces, as though they were meant for this all along.  (I also really like the background tree-line, nice way to give your map edge a realistic horizon.)   :up:

Needs more pickup trucks parked out front, probably with their wheels still on, since this looks like a high-class joint...

Thanks, guys!

Not sure the rocking chairs and piano would fit on the bus or the tram, JB.  Hmmm...  :whistling:

Thanks, JP!  The oak trees were a quick fix.  The plots of land on the back and side of the Cracker Bucket lot were too skinny to build on.   :D

Only two spots left to build on - a tiny one (big enough for a gas station or convenience store maybe?) and a large lot (maybe for a WalMart knock-off?)  I'm saving the giant plot of land over by Top Golf for a family fun center with go-karts, mini golf, bumper boats, etc. (Already made the bumper boats themselves...ready to put them in the water)

Oh yeah, Wagi.  I have LOTS of parking spots to fill. I'll be sure to add more trucks at the Cracker Bucket!

Fisherman, this is so incredible! Love the hotels and the new stores, really can't decide if I'd go for french toast or fried steak... I assume both ;)

Thanks for the nice comments, guys!

Need a decorative throw pillow for the trip home?  Forgot your toothbrush?  No worries!  Stop over at the RED DOT Superstore!  Please return your cart though.

Shoulda called it Bull's Eye. :mad:up:  The big cement spheres out front are the icing on the cake. Even the cart return racks look authentic. And as if 'Red Dot' wasn't enough, you regale us with a whole shopping center! Love the names of the other businesses. :up:

CRIKEY!!!!!! I've missed so much. You've added LOADS!!!
And all I can say, is excellent as always, my friend. I love the little touches like the shopping cart on it's side in the car park. You just know some lazy bugger left it there and then some little in-breed in a knackered old jeep knocked it over.
I can literally see Miss Coco Peru tottering past on her way in saying, "That bothers me"

Seriously though, how the hell has your computer not exploded yet?

Need to fill up after the long trip to Kaleidoscope Piers?  Or just need some beef jerky and a Lotto ticket?  No problem!  Pop in at MERRACO gas station and convenience store.  (Interesting fact:  MERRACO is America in Planco)  (Ice Freezer blueprint by SteveH500 on the workshop)

From the official Planco-English Dictionary site:





























SOOOOooo...I only have one plot of land left!!!  Just the spot for the family fun center!  Here are some shots from around the town of Planco Beach:
