the inside of the main building starting to get decorated. This was before the Aussie pack was out, so I do a lot of updating a bit later.

In the middle of the Aussie area, I placed two aviary buildings per the master plan. while the game doesn't have anything viable to put in these buildings, I just used a couple random exhibits to draw visitors in. There is also a staff building connecting these two structures together.

Since you're doing the lorikeet habitat now, you might like to see shyguy's San Diego Zoo thread about those colorful birds here:

(If you haven't already seen it.) :)

Beautiful paths. :)  They draw you in. I like the skyway gondolas they have in this game/sim. They're futuristic looking. I was going to call it a monorail, but it looks like it has 2 rails; more like an inverted or suspended swinging coaster.

I should point out that the bridge on the left of the last two photos will eventually lead to the Africa animals/section of the zoo.

The train passes along the back side of this area and along the dingo habitat.

I like how the train travels outside the hustle and bustle of the park, proper. Giving the guests a more scenic view, in places. Did you make the roos, or are they part of the game content? I like 'em. :)

I'm trying to figure out why all the peeps are running in the middle screenshot. Is an animal loose?

Re: Brookfield Zoo

they just run a lot. I really never have animals that get out

Very warm and inviting. :)  It makes me wanna linger awhile and look at everything. That's what humans would do anyway... no idea what the peeps think of it.

So, with the notification that an Aussie pack was actually coming out soon. I started to prepare this area of my zoo for an upgrade. The pack didn't really have the animals I was expecting, so I had to mix things up a bit to make it fit better. But this also resulted in an immediate growth area for this part of the zoo.

I decided to add a large dedicated koala habitat and restructure where the birds would go as well.

The red area will be the koala's. The blueish box around the red will be the indoor part of the exhibit.
The gold area will be the cassowary, with the green box being their inside shelter area.
The purple will be the keeper/staff areas.



Here is where this expansion will go compared to the rest of the Australian area already built.

here are the two new enclosures taking shape



The red is the cassowary outside area getting built. it will be viewable from the train ride.
Blue is the keeper's area which will serve and have backstage access to both enclosures.
Yellow is the shelter house for the cassowarys.

here is a closer look at the cassowary habitat.

The train ride passing by this enclosure



Where is will pass through a tunnel and enter the Africa area. The tunnel also hides the side of the shelter building.

Jumping away for a movement...

Here is a quick otter habitat I added to the zoo. Needs some clean up and finishing (I can't figure out the underwater feeders yet), but wanted to share.

Another winner. :)  This is a really nice looking habitat. I also like the fallen trees used as archways.

here is the start of what will be the koala building. There will be two outdoor viewing areas and an inside central area as well.

I like that little bump-out in the walkway (inside the walled area) so the guests can see the kritters from several different angles. (Notice how I spelled critters with a 'k' because... koalas.)

here is what the animal navigation area will be in this habitat.



the shell of the building (for the interior part of the exhibit) is completed, but still needs to be refined an decorated.

Jumping back to the reworking of the dingo habitat. I decided to combined the two separate areas into one, with a tunnel that connected them under the building.

Here is the entrance from the outside into the tunnel.



The other side of the tunnel actually comes out inside the building and the dingos can exit trough a door to the other outside part of the habitat.



The shape of the entire habitat.
