Planet Zoo - Zoo design
« on: May 06, 2019, 10:29 AM »
Wasn't sure really where to share this...so decided to put it here.
I will be doing a video series on zoo design and redesign using a local zoo I grew up with as the study example.
Hope you enjoy and can learn something from this as you start to play the new game coming out in the fall.

Glad somebody's getting this game.  It'll be nice to get some good data on it.  I'm not much interested in running a zoo but I wouldn't mind breeding up the best strain of fighting chickens :)

Jury is still out if I'm actually going to get the game (don't want to many distractions from PlanCo if I can help it...but you never know). I'm just talking about zoo design in anticipation, but to also give others something to start thinking about.

Here are a few other videos that show off this area of the zoo.
After watching this video it was confirmed that the bears to rotate between the three enclosures...much like I believed what was indicated for the future changes for the big cats. This gives each animal 3x the exposure to new environments.

Not gonna lie I am super excited for Planet Zoo. This game will be great, and I think all of your concepts with your research are impressive. It definitely shows the care everyone has for their creations when pulling real world examples into our works. Marvelous job everyone!  :D :D :D

Wow - that looks great for the animals. large and very interactive for them. The deep swimming option is so cool. its amazing that an animal that large can just swim like that. the huge bright indoor building with no cages is also awesome.

I started building this zoo today using the future master plan as my guide. I'm sure there will be some limitations, but I will try to replicate as best I can. I will start a separate thread for it once there is/if there is a place to do so.

The new Planet Zoo board is the place for your thread. ;)  It's for posting parks, discussions, tutorials, and anything else pertaining to PZ.
