Cromer Pier - Re-Issued
Re-issued at http://www.ShareCG.com/v/64300/view/5/3D-Model/Cromer-Pier
This is my model of Cromer Pier as it was first issued and still exists on my hard drive. It is pretty accurate and the only moving part is the water level, by which the user may bring the tide in or out.
There is very little that I wish to change here - perhaps a door or two opening - but I do want to add a handful of stalls selling rock, candyfloss, wind shelters, deckchairs, the famous Cromer crabs, icecream and whatever else I have the urge and time to produce. Perhaps a Punch and Judy show - who knows? These will be in the locations indicated.
During original development, the most fascinating thing for me was the sea. Not only did I want to bring the tide in and out, but I also wanted to give the user the option of adjusting wave size and the amount of foam. Well, I managed it - but only for D|S. The gentleman who at that time professed to be a Poser expert and who had converted previous models of mine reported that it was impossible to adapt my method. Since I had absolutely no knowledge of Poser, it was left undone. Now however, I know a lot more and wish to have another try. There is little doubt that it will take time.
I also have an idea for animating the waves and wish to try that too. It should look very nice if I can manage it. Add a sound file (as in my Big Ben model) and the result could be memorable.
Watch this space. If you have any other ideas, now is the time to shout.
