Planet Zoo / Re: Brookfield Zoo
« on: Yesterday at 01:55 PM »
So I decided to move/shift everything over to the left to give myself more room on the far right. I will provide updates once I make more progress on this. Game kept crashing when I was trying to delete the enclosure, so I'm not getting very far very fast.

Lets start to take a closer look.
There are basically 3 main entries to this land/island from other areas of the park.
First we have a bridge coming from the Sub-Continent (yet to be built) part of the park. Here is what that entry looks like.



Coming over from the SE Asia (yet to be built) part of the park is this bridge and entry building.

Very ambitious for your first project in PZ. Hopefully you don't get overwhelmed or overly frustrated and give up, as I am very much looking forward to seeing this progress. I'm surprised to hear you are running out of room. Are the maps in this game smaller than those in Planet Coaster?
the map is large - - I just didn't plan the spacing out very well and now that I'm seeing what I have left to squeeze into that side of the map...it most likely will not fit. I can shift every over to the left, but that would mean starting over...not sure if I have that in me right now.

I'm already running into spacing/layout issues, so I may have to change the end design a bit. I started to place the transport rides (Green for the train, Gold for the gondola), and also started some path placement and the first animal enclosure (tigers circled in red). As you can see its way too large and I need to size it better before any details start to get added. I have to say, still not please with all the management requirements even in sandbox (like power, staff buildings, etc.) that are needed as this will make spacing/sizing ever more difficult.



Looks like I may run out of room to the far right of my map to fit in the aquatic animal section of the par. Seeing as this is not even in game yet (and we have no clue if it ever will be)...I'm not too concerned. I may just add a faux front to this area that you can see from the paths, but can't really support anything real.



This could go down on record as being the slowest build I have ever done.

what a massive park this has become for being a pier park. love it. Like the plane with the banner...so classic for something like this.

Hey guys...also a reminder. Let me know if you want to officially join in on my trivia game I run via email (all for fun). I do have a few openings for new players if you are interested.

Couple state questions this week


What state is the top coal-mining capitol?
A: Wyoming
B: West Virginia
C: Pennsylvania
D: North Dakota


What state is the only state that does not have a National Park?
A: Rhode Island
B: Michigan
C: Alabama
D: Delaware

What state is the top coal-mining capitol?
A: Wyoming
West Virginia is no longer the coal-mining capital of the U.S.; nine of the ten top-producing coal mines are located in Wyoming


What state is the only state that does not have a National Park?
this question was deemed INVALID
So….after researching this a bit more...

The official answer was supposed to be Delaware., but the question is a bit dated as DE now has an official site as well.

After looking into this more the question was not really worded very well from my source…and it should have been a park managed by the Natl Park Service.

The dino pic looks great, to be sure. :)  I just wasn't aware that they had stuff like that in Animal Kingdom; didn't know where it fit in. I'd be taking pictures left and right in parks like this. Probably would've taken at least half a dozen of the big green dinosaur alone. :whistling:
Yep - that park has a dino land. Its a mix of some different themes.
1. there is a kind of archaeologist area, with a play area for kids and a sand pellet like digging area where kids can dig for bones.
2. a science type area where the dinosaur ride is (Indiana Jones ride from Disneyland re-themed)
3. A dino theme cheesy traveling carnival type area (where this picture was taken). It has some chance games, a dual spinning mouse coaster, and a dino version of the Dumbo ride.

A lot of fans hate this land and want it replaced, but I kind of like the atmosphere and liveliness of this area...I think its kind of fun. In recent years Donald and his crew have taken over the area and there are dance parties and other fun stuff like that going on.

There were some rumors that this was going to ripped out and replaced with Indiana Jones land, but they are just rumors (that I would love way more than the dino theme)

very nice ride. I love the tight surroundings and the speed is perfect. Like a coaster dark ride. Very cool

I love studying the Pandora shots. It's clever how the Imagineers made the rocks look like they're floating by disguising the supports with the various vines and foliage. Um, how does that cartoony dinosaur fit in? And I'm not sure what we're looking at in that last photo with the 'cave paintings'. Looks like some sort of recess in the rockwork.
Sorry - I should have captioned the photos a bit better.
The Dino was in the Dinosaur area of Animal Kingdom and I looked up and the sky was so blue, with the clouds and I had to capture it...loved the way it came out.

That last picture was part of the ceiling in the queue of the Flight of Passage ride in Pandora. The mix of colors just caught my attention as I was standing there not moving (pretty standard for that queue)

That architecture...I just can't even...  This is so beautiful, man.
THX - but I will give credit as we walk through this in more detail. Most all those buildings are, or at least started out as workshop items. There was no way I could build all those from scratch on my own.

THX guys. Lots of details still to come to share from this land. Seems like it took forever to build (didn't help that I switched computers in the middle of it).

And here is what the finished land looks like. All the land painting is completed, the terrain details are put in, all the plants and detailed scenery items are also finished.

Slow start to this zoo project, but I did start to lay out the plan in the map by painting some main areas and also started the pathing for the entry plaza and main garden promenade to the Roosevelt Fountain area.

Then we move into the phase where more details are finished. Here the mountain is more completed...it still needs all the final painting and fine tune manipluation, but this is real close to what the final land formatting will end up looking like.



More buildings are added and the flat ride positions are adjusted as well. Also, some of the scenery details are starting to take shape.



I do jump around a lot from section to section in this stage to keep the overall plan in place and to make sure anything I do will not totally wipe out something else.

Then as I start to add details, I break the area down into way smaller sections to fully finish...like work on the market street, then the back of the street, then the bridges to the land, then the area around the flat rides...etc.

« on: November 06, 2019, 07:17 AM »
Well - I will be trying to build a recreate of a real zoo outside the Chicago area called Brookfield Zoo...but I will be using a future master plan version of the zoo that I will be working from as the inspiration for this zoo. I'm sure I may have to take some liberties in some areas, but will try to follow the master plan as close as I can. I really hope that this turns out to be a good thread and that you will enjoy it.

Great thing is the plan has a sky lift ride in it and what a great surprise the they included a gondola type ride in the game release - - make me so excited.

Anyway...here is a shot of what the plan looks like.


My other tread on Zoo Design goes into great detail on the evolution of this master plan if you want to see those details about this zoo.

I'm glad for this thread, I'm sure I'll purchase the game but aside from a couple of videos I haven't really done much research on it and I'm not really sure what to expect.

Those of you who have made the plunge, what is the "build mode" like?  Is it similar to Planet Coaster and RCT3 where you have complete control over every aspect, or is it more like RCTWorld where they just give you the buildings and you plop them down in their entirety?  How about pathing and game controls? 

I think what I'm saying is that if they've imported the Planet Coaster build basics, I'm much more likely to jump in...
Its basically PC with different skins and with animals instead of rides...and actually, there are 5 rides

just like PlanCo as far as building goes and a ton of great looking pieces. There are also blueprints made up as well that you can use.

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.
