Title: Some tourist attractions (UFO incident and others)
Post by: vilvoh on November 02, 2008, 08:03:15 PM
I'm making this tourist attraction based in something I saw sometime ago in a pixel art forum. It's a pair of aliens that have had an accident. The army is the first to arrive there. It'll be desert climate only.

EDIT: preview updated

I'm sure there isn't any directive "no aliens in Simutrans". And it isn't much of a military, only a green jeep… approved :)

Mulder and Scully have copyright so I didn't have more options..in earlier sketches, there was an army helicopter, but I remove it because it took a lot of space. It's based on Roswell incident.

P.S: There are not soldiers because they've been abducted... ::)

Pfff.... too late. I was about to post saying:

"Where is the tourist attraction you said? I'm not seeing any. By change, has it been abducted?"

 ;D

Post by: vilvoh on November 03, 2008, 08:14:36 PM
I've updated the preview. Now the aliens glow, the impact crater is more dirty and I've added the desert ground texture. I've corrected lights position, too.
Title: Re: Tourist attraction: UFO incident
Post by: VS on November 03, 2008, 08:22:08 PM
Are you aware of the fact that you can cut the two aliens from base image, put them into FrontImage[]=*blahblah and have them glow whatever color you choose, apart from the special ones? Or at least theoretically it should be possible.

And did it work?

I always talk about this but never tried it ;)
Title: Re: Tourist attraction: UFO incident
Post by: IgorEliezer on November 03, 2008, 08:56:34 PM
May I make a suggestion?

I think this add-on would fit better in pak96.comic.
Title: Re: Tourist attraction: UFO incident
Post by: vilvoh on November 03, 2008, 11:44:35 PM
And did it work?

I haven't tried yet. Anyway, I don't remember if there are big buildings animated (2x2 or larger)

I think this add-on would fit better in pak96.comic.

 :-\.... I'm not sure. It has no comic style, but is true that it's quite informal. Let me finish it and we'll see.
Title: Re: Tourist attraction: UFO incident
Post by: PatrickN on November 04, 2008, 12:42:56 AM
It reminds me of some graphical errors I had when I made future.pak and the saucer ship flew through some buildings.

I like it.

While I finish the UFO incident, I have time to create this Poseydon temple. The design is not mine, is from a pixel-art website. I used GIMP to create the water effect, but the final version will be in 3D. I have to fix some textures and add a fence, too.

UFO incident, renamed to Close Encounters of the First Kind, finished... Its chance and passengers level are not very high, therefore it won't be very common. I don't want to see any alien invasion in Simutrans.. :)

Yes, although we might need poseidon's help, sometimes, for an extension request made before, ;) IMHO. :)

BTW, Good Job, with these add-ons, vilvoh. :) Although this time, I'm a bit late in seeing them (November -> January). ::)

We already know that we're not alone in Simutrans universe, but now it's time to put in contact with them. That's the reason why SimuSeti project was created, and this is its radio-telescope, called "The Big Ear".
(http://www.postimage.org/Pq11_9HA.png) (http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=Pq11_9HA)

It's based on an addon I saw at Simcity forum, but adapted to Simutrans. I've to fix the scales and add the details to buildings (windows, roofs, etc..) and ground (trees, people, roads, security fences, etc..) but until now, the result is better than I expected.. ;D

Post by: vilvoh on May 18, 2009, 09:05:58 PM
Thanks Hajo. After reading the novel I became a big fan of the author, and I also though it was a good opportunity to replace the original cathedral that appears at pak64, which if I remember correctly was painted by Raven, wasn't it? In addition, It was going to be my two cents for the pak128.Britain project... The image that inspires this object is this wallpaper (http://www.ken-follett.com/images/pote/800x600/Pillars_06_800x600.jpg)

Ah, it's a pity we don't have pak512 to show off all the detail you'd have to add for such a pak... hehehe

The 2x2 cathedral in 64 is made from photo of some famous real world building... can't remember anymore which one it is though. Hajo could tell us ;)

Thanks Hajo. After reading the novel I became a big fan of the author, and I also though it was a good opportunity to replace the original cathedral that appears at pak64

Sounds like a good idea. The old image never really fit well into Simutrans, and the new cathedral will be a nice replacement. the idea of having photorealistic images never really took off, better to go with the style that most existing buildings have.

I think I'll use the new cathedral for pakHajo.Evolution too, once you tell it's ready :)

As the forum still has problems with attachments, I've taken a break, but today I've come back to work on the pending projects, so here you've the work in progress of Kingsbrigde cathedral and Big Ear Radio Telescope. I've also started working on a tourist attraction for pak.Brasil (Corvovado's Christ the Redeemer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corcovado))
(http://www.postimage.org/gx1HSOl9.png) (http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=gx1HSOl9)

(http://www.postimage.org/aV1pyfnr.png) (http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=aV1pyfnr)
I've added a road to access to all buildings, and I've resized all buildings to pak64 scale.

Finally, I've finished the Big Ear. I added an extra antena, several trees and bushes, and the fence. Its chance is low, so probably it won't appear often, one or two by map as much. The intro date is 1951.

@Edson - is that from a blender model?  If so would you mind if I could have it to use in pak128.Britain? (It would need re-scaling and probably best to re-render it using the pak128.Britain settings on my setup).  It looks really good...
Title: Re: Some tourist attractions (UFO incident and others)
Post by: edson on July 08, 2009, 02:58:03 PM
No, not used to Blender, I am doing testing with Google SketchUp, I am getting good results with it, look at a more expanded version of the Cathedral:

Oh OK.  I think it is possible to export sketchup models into something blender can read though.  If you are happy for your model to be used in pak128.Britain (with modifications) and be open-source, I'd be very interested in it once you have finished.
Title: Re: Some tourist attractions (UFO incident and others)

It's needs a 3x6x2 template. The scale is not bad at all. See the building in action..

Even though it is most likely original size, I would suggest to shorten it a bit to fit it more into simutrans world. Ideally I would get 2x2 size, then it could replace the old kathedral.
Title: Re: Some tourist attractions (UFO incident and others)
Post by: edson on July 08, 2009, 08:20:55 PM

Second rotation would be great; otherwise this will forbid map rotation ... Should not too difficult with 3D modells though.
Title: Re: Some tourist attractions (UFO incident and others)
Post by: vilvoh on July 08, 2009, 08:56:49 PM
Have a look at this screenshot...

(http://img365.imageshack.us/img365/6516/yorkscalecomparison.jpg) (http://img365.imageshack.us/i/yorkscalecomparison.jpg/)

Now, comparing the whole, I think the small one fits better. a 2x2 size, as prissi suggested, would seem very small imho, but you can make the test. Btw, there're some white zones near the borders that should be removed for the final release.

DO not misunderstood me. The one on the previous page is very beatiful. However, a replacement for the current 2x2 cathedral is alsodesired. That was, why I suggested also a little shortening for a standard cathedral replacement.

You're right, I'm afraid I do misunderstood you. I'm sorry.. :P  Anyway there must be a better candidate for replacing the pak64 old cathedral that fits better in a 2x2 template, like Sacred Family cathedral (http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=2b988cdda50dffc1de72962b5da7a751&prevstart=0) at Barcelona, Spain, for example

(http://img365.imageshack.us/img365/6516/yorkscalecomparison.jpg) (http://img365.imageshack.us/i/yorkscalecomparison.jpg/)

Now, comparing the whole, I think the small one fits better. a 2x2 size, as prissi suggested, would seem very small imho, but you can make the test. Btw, there're some white zones near the borders that should be removed for the final release.



I think the big one is far more realistic in terms of scale. Those mediaeval cathedrals are huge.
EDIT: it's the tower blocks that are too small, in fact.

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.

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...  ;)

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

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?

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.
Title: Re: Some tourist attractions (UFO incident and others)

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.

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)

Looks cool, though the lanes (where the golf balls go) were what I was saying looked too much like concrete as gray (in reply #137)... The borders of the lanes would be fine as gray, as they often are concrete. Does minigolf where you live have lanes of concrete or gray carpet?
Love the ticket building and the little people playing golf.
As a minigolf player, I always found holes like the next-to-last one, where you have to run the ball along a rail, very hard, hehe. Great job!

Well, they're usually white or light grey, green is only for top notch minigolf. Anyway, I needed a color to distinguish it from the grass, and white was rather plain. The same happens with the border lanes. I think the different colors give it a funny point.

Okay, that explains it. Around here, almost all the minigolf places have green carpet or artificial turf, but it's interesting to learn about how things are in other places.
Yeah, I like the colors for each hole.
Thanks for all your hard work on these! The pak64 isn't getting much lovin', these days, so I appreciate your contributions all the more (since I have a laptop and don't want to tax it as much as pak128 does).
