Newgate Street

I've started the surrounding area to the station, here is the first bits of Newgate Street, will work my way down to the Wear Valley Hotel and down to the 4 clocks. The buildings are pretty simple shapes, because I am filling in the whole town I have made a call on where I will use my polygons, hopefully the textures will more than make up for the lower poly housing.

In other news,
I was never keen on drama's or soaps, period or otherwise, however it is certainly entertaining seeing Vera Duckworth and co doing a state side show.

Almost there..

Starting to feel right now. Once the surrounding area goes in I will feel much better.

Station Progress

Now that TS2013 is out my focus this weekend has been on the Station.
I have finished the platform edges, and missing buildings as well as cleaned up many of the loose ends.
My next task is to make the 2 or 3 different lamps that were on the platforms.

I will also need to re-bake the whole station with a new light map. The one I did many moons ago has long since broken.
I look forward to showing the progress over the next few days.

Are we there yet?

It's been one of those days, (is it done yet..? what about now!?) just when i should be popping the champers
I get dragged into something. :)

So in between scenario playing, I have just been tinkering in the editor as you do, put a train on some tracks in my wood and drove around, amazed at how great it looks and feels.

cho cho boys, see you on the other side.
