Welcome to Eureka! Not much of a skyline to speak of right now, but that'll change over time.





Little detail shot of the Welcome Plaza. The Parisian-styled kiosk was once built for another project, but I think it fits nicely here.





Still a ton of detailing to be done, and I'm not too sure about the extremely generic buildings flanking the arches, but I also don't want to go all overboard with elaborate theming here. Maybe generic is just fine?



See you next time!

Looks great so far, Berlin!  I think the whole thing looks fine even if you consider it "generic".  Looking forward to seeing this develop.

The buildings next to the arches have a nice contemporary look and feel. Unless you want them to reflect a specific theme, I think they look great, as is. :)  I guess it depends on what purpose they serve in the park. Right now they're a generic entryway, sort of like Disneyland's hub/plaza surrounded by the differently themed 'lands'. A non-themed area that leads to all the other lands. Maybe that's what you're going for here?

Super realistic as always.  Anxious to see what direction this takes you (and us!)   :up:

It is pretty unreal that I actually had to double take to see if those were real pictures or P.C. pictures lol. Phenomenal work.

@ wowman -- thank you!
@ bullethead -- Much appreciated! I decided to stick with the generic buildings
@ JB -- I agree with your line of thinking. They are fine as they are right now.
@ JPAlmight -- Thank you! Glad you like it
@ Cinestrio -- Haha, I have to admit that the in-game filters also do miracles!



Some fresh shots today of recently finished, colourful projects





A cozy corner serving French delicatesse




Le Vingt 27 Sept is situated right next to a drop tower. Screams and snails!




A bit further down the path, we find 99 Colours, a famous chain.




Don't forget to get your caricature taken by Old Joe - he's pretty good!


Thank you for commenting and for visiting - see you next time!

I've said it before and I'll say it again I love that 99 colors building. The backdrop next to the tables is great.

Really enjoying all the small details in this. The electrical box and wires on le vingt 27, the generator next to the drop tower, and the pcoaster caricatures. Everything is great so far.

Your screenshots always look like real photographs. And it's not just any filters you may be using. The way you compose the shots and the attention to detail and realism make even the most simplest building look beautiful. I love the little caricature stand, too. That's something I don't think I've seen anyone else do.

The Le Vingt 27 Sept image: It's amazing how something as simple as a few vines on the wall can really bring the scene to life. And like the others have said- the artsy editing on the caricature images is clever and a joy to behold.

@montu -- thank you so much, I am really glad you like 99 Colours! I wanted to go with something generic but fun. Also, thanks for noticing all the little details. I put so much love into this project :o)

@shyguy -- thank you! And you are right, a bad picture can't be saved with a 1000 filters, so I always make sure I choose the right angle, lighting, etc. That is 90% of the work, by the way. The rest is just a matter of downgrading a bit of the vibrancy, shadows, etc.

@Bullet -- ha, thanks! Park Eureka recently hired Bullet & Head Communications Ltd. to come up with their snazzy slogans

@JB -- I agree about the vines! While I appreciate builders using hundreds of pieces for one facade, I think simplicity has its own, unique attraction :o) And thank you for your nice words about the caricature stand!

@Nemmie -- good to 'see' you again! Thank you, thank you.



Just a small but significant update this time, as it took me more than a week to come up with something nice for this part of the park:
Meet another new ip at Park Eureka: WHOOSH!




Whoosh is a wildly popular superhero, starring in a series of live-action movies produced by Eureka Pictures.



More pics of the Whoosh roller coaster + more in the next update – see ya!

You and your skills...  :drool:

Really like the palette on this... you somehow got to use red and green without remotely making me feel a Christmas vibe.  And the branding elements here are fantastic:  Signage, logos, custom path lights, and using build mode walls and roofs in a unique way that that comes across realistically.  So much to see and drool on from just one photo...
