The high school is immediately recognizable as a school. In the first screenshot, I quickly scanned the text and thought it said "Stoners" instead of Stationers. Ha! I'd like to see that in Bedford Falls!

I like the decorative border. And it never occurred to me to have 3-D points-of-interest buttons. I like it! (I may have to steal it.) ;)

The first one looks like a van Gogh; during one of his less troubled times. Or maybe one of Seurat's pointillist paintings.

The railroad scene reminds me of the diorama in the movie "Night at the Museum", where the little figures come to life.

The Suffragettes look surprisingly true-to-life. A well thought-out scene that tells the story at a glance.

"And no caption needed for this iconic scene". Ah yes. The erection of the scaffolding to begin construction on the Empire State Building. An iconic moment, indeed. :P

The foliage in the first screenshot is beautiful. Sensory overload! The daytime fairgrounds shot truly looks like a (early 20th century) World's Fair. You've captured all the stately grandeur that was on display in those bygone fairs.

Hi, chasriley8793. Usually when the game freezes up it's because a custom scenery folder is embedded inside another folder. If you press Alt Tab when the game freezes, you will probably see this error message on your desktop: "No :svd for :sid" (or something like that). Go to where the set is installed and see if the set is inside another folder. Highlight and Cut the inside folder and delete the outer folder. Then paste the inside folder back into your Style/Themed folder (or wherever you normally install custom scenery). Hope that solves your problem. :)

Love the Fantasia theming. I can picture Centaurs galloping around in those idyllic, colorful landscapes. And there's Chernabog staring down at us malevolently. Do the colorful columns represent the abstract "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" segment? They remind me of organ pipes. Really neat to see the enchanted brooms sloshing water everywhere. Which brings up an interesting paradox: Mickey was in Disney's Fantasia, yet he wouldn't be 'born' until 1928. This Exposition is set in 1904... hmm.

The Japan Pavillion is wonderful, with highly detailed landscaping. I love the iconic shot of the arched bridge reflected in the water.

Nice to have you posting here again, Supernovae. Good screenshots, too. Beautiful lighting.

Concise and legible; good qualities for a map to have. I like the scarab and pyramid vignettes.

I like how the palette knife effect turned out.

It really is amazing how well the game handles snow. I used to be a hobbyist computer programmer (sort of still am), I'm picturing mathematic formulas that determine which surfaces receive snow, and how much, based on their angles.

Love the water reflections.

Wow, everything is so lush and verdant along the Jungle Cruise and surrounding area! You really nailed the dense jungle look. Nice update!

Beautiful colors in those two shots. Dark, but not too dark. We can still see what's there.

Wow. Lots of impressive structures here! Especially the Palace of Fine Arts and the huge serpentine arch above the Magic Whirlpool ride. Um, what was the Magic Whirlpool ride, anyway?

This looks really nice! Your amalgam park is a little fancier and more detailed than most of these types of parks, which is an improvement, because, typically, there wasn't a lot for adults to do there. I think at least one of these storybook type parks could/can be found in just about every state.
Looks like a pleasant place to spend a few hours walking around, eating, and admiring the artistry and craftsmanship.

Thanks for pointing out the various paths and how they connect to everything. I'm actually getting familiar with the Egypt area, at least from the overhead view. I still get lost occasionally from a peep's eye view.

Looks like the Alps come in two different flavors: Winter and Summer. The real photos of the fair with the Alpine background look really great. From the photos, you'd never guess that they were flats. I wonder if the illusion worked as well for the fair goers? I'm also wondering why the Autobus was so high off the ground; sight seeing? Maybe it pulled up alongside a platform to make loading and unloading easier.

The Tyrolean area looks great! Very inviting, with interesting and picturesque architecture. I love all the mountainside wildflowers. I'm guessing that the Alps are a flat cutout? Probably some of Wagi's work?

Wow! Lots of new scenery items and (I think) re-texturing here. Are you sure this isn't Planet Coaster? ;)

Nice video recap of what this park is all about. It was neat seeing your friend's artwork and models. I also have a better understanding of where everything is and its relationship to surrounding attractions. :up:

The 2nd pic has tons of wildlife: On the right, we see a lone Cubic Antelope (Antelopus Cubicus) grazing in the tall grass. Its square shape offers protection from predators, in that, it's difficult for them to grab hold of the flat sides of the antelope with their teeth and claws. Native to the savanna regions of Africa.

Hanging from that crossbeam is a super rare Skinless No-toed Sloth (Slotheus Sansadigitus Sansadermis). As you might imagine, these slow-moving animals are often mistaken for hunks of hanging meat. Easy prey for a variety of predators. Hence, their rarity.

Oh, and there's some sort of cat in there too. He just ate a bag of cherry popsicles and puked it all up. :D

I like the lighting in the last photo. Shadowy but bright; like a surreal painting.

I love the grand arches of the Siberian Railway. Also the multi-faceted arched doorway (exit?) to the right.
The Educated Horse sounds like something P.T. Barnum would have on display, right alongside the Fiji Mermaid. Except Barnum was already gone by 1904. Still, I'm sure that horses clomping their hoofs to indicate numbers, etc. had been around for quite a while, and at numerous fairs and exhibitions. Funny how the horses seemed to know only the things that their owners knew. ;)

The Hanging Gardens has been one of my favorite Ancient Wonders because so little is known about it. Scholars aren't even in agreement as to what they actually were. It's generally thought that they were, as you depicted them here, basically rooftop gardens. Evidently that had never been done before, at the time.

I think the first pic is my favorite today. It looks like a giant desert snake wrapping itself around a rock formation.
Last pic, musta been a "buy one, get one free" sale on obelisks. :D  Actually, all those vertical pylons give the shot a striking look.

Haha, "exploding fun". So you laid down a tracked ride to use for the camera, right? Do they have an invisible track in PC? Or did you have to sink the track under the pavement? I assume the explosion was just the cars crashing at the end of the unfinished track. Sort of like Peep Bowling.

In the first pic, we get a nice view of the rare (and endangered) Globe Armadillo (Armadillius Globulus). His shell-like armor protects him from the roaming cats.
And in the last pic, we can see a Rocktopus (Octopuseus Stonicus) clinging to that upper crossbeam on the left-side viewing area. :D  Sorry for the irreverence, I'm feeling giddy today.

I clicked on your link, warcat. It took me to the Authors page, no white screen. I selected an author and clicked on a CS set; the set's page came up; still no problems. Probably something to do with whatever computer you were using. Good luck with the other computer. :)

Nice walk-thru of the funhouse and hedge maze. The multi-colored spider webs linger in my memory the most, I think.

I like the rock archway with its hanging vines. Very dramatic!
