A new WIP of Archaeological sites, the release is very close.. ;D


Hmm... is there any way to make it not place where it would have to modify the ground level? It looks a bit odd to have it appear with a wall, like the fossils were trucked in after the ground was leveled.
Sorry if someone has already mentioned this.

No.

Maybe you can think of it as a part already cleared away. Maybe they started the excavation because they were removing the natural hill and found some ancient walls.

The worlds most epic monument of love. I hope it will become really epic, even in Simutrans :)

In addition to Taj Mahal, I'm also working in two thematic buildings: an aztec/mayan pyramid and a shogun castle.

May I beg you to render the Japanese Castle for me in 128 size as well, once it's done? I could use it for a Japan related project of mine... por favor, PLEASE!

Sure, but you'll have to fix things and increase the detail level with a painting program, as the textures I'm going to use are not high quality.

Good question... on the one hand four rotations are always nice, on the other hand it's often more or less a waste of memory, since not that much more to be seen...

If it's not too much work, I think four are good start - I can still leave some out when I get to work on it - if we do it the other way round I might have to bother you again...  ;)

Well, I don't know. I'll have to push F12 three times more, which is very annoying... :::)

The aztec ruins are finished and The Taj Mahal only needs the textures.



@DirrrtyDirk: The pak128 version of the shogun castle is at graphics.simutrans.com. I only apply a sharpen filter to the image.

Shogun castle finished, with winter version.

EDIT: the aztec ruins, now called Teotihuacan ruins, are also available for downloading. It only appears in tropical climate.

1) Do not double-post. This means if you have the last post in a thread, MODIFY that post, do not post another post.

2) It clearly states these are works in progress, there is no download.

Because of this as well as you claiming you made content that you didn't, I have removed your rights to post except in the Forum Lounge. You are not ready to participate in the wider forum at this time. When your posting ban expires, you may post in the Forum Lounge.

I have an idea. Don't think of it as a request but just an idea yousomeone could pursue if desired.
Race tracks. There could be two kinds, a long, skinny one for a Drag Strip and a more square-like one for an oval track... or for a curvy GrandPrix/Formula1 type Race Track.
What do you think of the idea?

That is a driving school, where you train and are examined for your driving exams. It is part of pak.japan (which needs and updated badly) and the japanese wiki.

Really nice work.

It looks pretty huge I'd say. But i don't know, maybe that's the right scale? I've only seen photos of it - so it's really hard to tell.

edit: ok wikipedis says 58 m tall. So the scale is about right (or maybe even too small), compared to these 4-5 floor buildings next to it.

IIRC, the object size is about 5-6 floor, that means about 35-42 m. in real life. Anyway, I've finished it. Only has one rotation and without winter version neither special colors.

Sure. I've realized there's one in pak128 and I already made some tests long time ago. I'll try to reboot that project. Thanks for the suggestion... ;)

Around here, miniature golf greens usually have green, blue, or red carpet or artificial turf. The gray/silver looks a little too much like concrete, to me, but the overall image is very good!  Is there a building there where they take your money and give you clubs/balls? Or is this a public recreation area? :)

It's just a work in progress. The final version will have a color for each step of the circuit, the carpet will be probably green or white and I will add several trees and people playing. As you have pointed out, it also needs a ticket office. It's going to be a city tourist attraction (curiosity building)
