Just if need some details for your factory, I found pictures of adequate electronic factories.
Just for some elements and things like the backyard. Those can be seen nicely on the pics.

(The one produced light bulbs, the other radioelectronics)

It looks like a good idea. Nice job :)
Think of some antennas in the roof... and blinking lights, lots of lights ;D

Really first preview. Else it looks good - but regardless of I don't know what situation is around rights for original electronics factory, still original factory is very nice and this one need long time to it would be at the same degree of beauty.

It looks nice, and pretty similar to factory's I visited.

Maybe it could produce machinery as well? or something new

I like where it's going. It really does look legitimate. :D

Also, a request, or at least a request for you to consider: That fence, imho, would make an awesome fence by itself, if it wouldn't be too much work...

Ooh. You just made me think of you as a better painter than before :D

(there goes my last creative appreciative comment - but well spent!)

thank you very much!!!

Thanks! The fence, actually comes directly from "PARTS" file release september 2008. It would be possible indeed to make it as a standalone fence, i will put it in my TODO list.

Also the tower will probably be edited and released in a couple of variants as an office tower (COM building).

Now much better - but still very much has to be done.

well, obviously additional work is needed, painting is not a quick and easy task, but could you tell me specifically what are you thinking of?
Title: Re: ELECTRONICS FACTORY
Post by: Václav on January 05, 2010, 02:25:18 PM
Change:
shades - roof and walls could be shaded
colours - walls could be lighter or darker

Add:
cars on parking
goods on area in the front of "cargo" gate

isn't connection between building and tower missing in right-bottom image?

btw, it looks great indeed.

Post by: Fabio on January 13, 2010, 08:09:04 AM

i will look at it some more, but from my studies so far, the connection is completely hidden by the tower...
Title: Re: ELECTRONICS FACTORY
Post by: Combuijs on January 13, 2010, 08:18:58 AM
Then you should study a bit more  :D . According to the left bottom image the bridge connects to the left part of the low building (e.g. the side where trucks are parking).
Title: Re: ELECTRONICS FACTORY
Post by: DirrrtyDirk on January 13, 2010, 09:46:43 AM
According to the other 3 views, I'd say, yes, there should be a bridge visible on the 4th as well.
Title: Re: ELECTRONICS FACTORY
Post by: Fabio on January 13, 2010, 10:08:34 AM
If you look, the bridge is large from the second to the fifth window, left side, of the top building floor (see top images).
These windows are concealed by the tower, so it should be the bridge IMHO. Also the bridge is roughly half of the tower's size.

But these windows are in full view on the image with the "missing" bridge!  It really does look like the bridge should be there.

thank you The Hood, thank you all... I was looking at the wrong windows... something was fishy, but I couldn't find my error.
It will be fixed now.

Looks good. The only thing making me a bit uncomfortable is the roof, - all Factory buildings i know have got a lot of windows in there.
But they are pretty old and you've got Air conditioning on your Building already. Maybe some solar Panels then? Speaking of Windows, maybe open a few of them?
Title: Re: ELECTRONICS FACTORY
Post by: Fabio on January 13, 2010, 03:10:53 PM
in most of newer buildings opening windows is forbidden/not allowed (specially if they have forced air circulation). But i will see.
Definitely i'll give a try to solar panels, instead, the roof is a bit empty also in my opinion.

Yup, air condition and solar panels are good ideas to fill the empty space in the roof. Maybe some cameras or street lighting could also fit well. Btw, looks really nice :)

Post by: Fabio on January 13, 2010, 09:54:31 PM
Here with bridge fixed and solar panels... they don't turn, as they need to be orientated towards South...

Gotta love how it's the only one in the winter scene with snow on it.  ;)
Title: Re: ELECTRONICS FACTORY

Snow might eventually come, but it's an extensive process and when one does not know which items will stay...

On the other hand, snow should be mandatory for all NEW objects to include ;)

What is that blue spot on the left (just above the two parked trucks) in the winter scene?

Great job as always!

Wow. Commited. Everyone, grab 128 nightly on Monday... it's nice :)
Title: Re: ELECTRONICS FACTORY
Post by: grampybear on February 03, 2010, 12:05:14 AM
Tip of my hat to you...A wonderful job. Will this be available as a Pak add-on or must we wait for a new Pak128 release?
Title: Re: ELECTRONICS FACTORY
Post by: DirrrtyDirk on February 03, 2010, 12:10:14 AM
as VS said: it should be part of the actual pak128 nightly by now.

Looks good. Love it. ;D

I think that it should be part of the next release of Pak 128 ;D

IIRC it's included in the last release (1.4.6)
