Hi guys,:tiphat:

Pictown is back.

Now it is animated thanks to Dan's work on the incoming Prelude III
A lot of new very cool features have been added and the mesh
has been improved for a better integration to earth.

A lot of things are now animated like AI traffic, trains, smokes, lights, but
you can also command some other like hangar's doors. There will be also
some new stunning cars as firework truck (With VC), police, new Mmu etc. etc.

A series of screenshots worth more than a hundred words.
It is almost finished but it needs a good doc, some good
scenarios and some adjustements.

Stay tuned. :cheers:

Thanks Matias.

I'm very happy to know you liked the first version of Pictown.

I think this release will be better because benefiting the very
cool animation features from Prelude and the opportunities to
act on the set. It will be much more scenarisable and become
more pleasant to prepare your trip to Orcus Patera or to rest
after a very long space trip.

I try to make Pictown pleasant at many level of details.

Here are two screens describing better what I want to mean.

Atlas, GPS

:lol:

But really thinking about making a list of streets and roads and name them.
For the V3.0

It will be very simple to add little houses in Pictown.
Could be fun for an Orbinaut to get his own home.
Fast-toche has got one at this time.

Then it will be possible to start a mission getting out of bed, taking a shower, having coffee and newspaper before driving a tricked out muscle car to the launch facility. :lol:

No mail service at this time.
Mayor faces sedition at Pictown.

I was thinking about the possibility to each orbinaut to build his own house wherever he wants in Pictown via UCGO Cargos.

But the problem is that each cargo is only 1,3m cube.
A wooden house ( for example ) may need at least 10 of them.
But there is a problem to release them.

Thinking about the default flat bed truck from UCGO.:idk:

Just launch it carrying 10 cargos.
Release them wherever you want, then unpack them all with a UMmu without moving them.

Done.

Then it will be possible to start a mission getting out of bed, taking a shower, having coffee and newspaper before driving a tricked out muscle car to the launch facility. :lol:

That was the idea we had with Dan a few years ago.
UCGO + ABFO ( advanced building for Orbiter - Now Pictown -or Orcus Patera + PRELUDE) = better immersion
Now it's almost done.

Four models are available.

The packed cargo is only here for eye candy.
Specific to the default Ucgo flatbed truck.

Build one of them wherever you want.
Buy one now ! :lol:
