Hey, that is pretty nicely done! You show a lot of promise as an artist :).

I do have one concern though, with TT scale, it looks a bit too big, overall the thing looks realisticly proportioned, but compared with other 2x2 tile objects, I'm not too sure.

Overally size-wise I'm not sure, but it sure is nice regardless of any of that.

Perhaps adjust the size of the building to fit a 1x1 tile. Then the rest could be built up using eye-candy graphics or similar!

Hmm, I think condensed into a 1x2 tiles it could work quite well. Hell even in it's current stage it's probably not too bad, I'd have to see it in game to get a feel for it.

Tnx everyone, Nice that you likes it! :D

Well, i might have overlooked that.. I made it 2x2 since 1 or 2 tiles looked kind of tiny. I proportioned it after a original 2 storie house from TTD. But since its a McD, and not a house, i added 2 pixels in height. But compared to other 2x2, I have no clue... :roll:

Perhaps adjust the size of the building to fit a 1x1 tile. Then the rest could be built up using eye-candy graphics or similar!
As i mentioned to Aegir, 1 tile looks too tiny. But if thats whats need to be done make it realistic and code it, so be it! :D

Actually, what I ment was that a 1x2 would be best and then you could add the parking spots separately - possibly as eye candy or station tiles! Don't think the building itself needs to be reduced!

Sizes in TTD is pretty much difficult and a matter of taste. While similar objects do look okey compared to each others, adding other stuff all of a sudden wrecks it all! :P

This looks really great.

Now if only their food were as good as that drawing, half the world's problems would be solved.

The cars and trees are definitely of the right size. You can look at Zimmlock's police/fire stations if you want to shrink it to 2x1.

Well, why "Mc Donalds"? Their chips are awfull. Only their prices are low, as they have no customers! Why not "Goodies" (The leading fast food company in my country) or KFC.

OK. Besides my personal opinion about the certain brand, your graphics are great. Thank you.

I dunno which McDonalds you go to but they're regularly packed out over here.

And KFC is ten times worse than McD's.

For the record, I eat both.
