Didn't know where to post this else, and because OTTD is going 32bpp and just 3D graphic creation makes longer sense for it in my mind, I made a new thread here in the TTDPatch forum.
First of all, before you cry how damn big that thing is, and that it's too big and ugly and whatever comes into your mind
It's a work in progress, I know it's not very detailed, has wrong colors and looks kinda boring. (But, I mean, so many reinforced-concrete-buildings in the real world look also VERY boring.)
It's inspired by the german station Hannover Messe/Laatzen
, but not an exact copy.
Now it's your turn: I can't decide me for a roof pattern (I mean the roof of the platform skywalks), so maybe you can help me a little bit. See "Hannover Messe Laatzen recent.png", upper graphic (A) for the following questions:
The white roofs:
- cross striped or
- lengthwise striped as seen in the background one.
The grey roofs:
- striped and shaded or
- narrow striped as seen in the background skywalk.
Last but not least:
I can still modify the height of the building, and also think that it is needed... I don't know why, but although (see "Hannover Messe Laatzen.png" pic) my building is just 3 pixels taller than the big station hall of one of Michael Bluncks great stations, it looks disproportional higher, not to say "damn-huge" Wink. Maybe it's the "window" pattern... The "windows" which you see are something like 2-3 meters in height, but unfortunately they /seem/ to be bigger.
I've made also two variations of the Messe/Laatzen station: The one in the middle, (B) (in "Hannover Messe Laatzen recent.png"), has less taller skywalks, the one below (C) has a smaller main hall. Maybe it would be the best to make a version which unites both variations, but first I would like to read your opinions.
