Glad you like it folks.  Thanks for the kind comments.
SimonJM - LOL.  That was quick.

Sometimes I can react with the speed of a startled sloth ... wink

(Chuckle)  I see that you have promoted yourself, too.  What, no grand uniform?

The perennial problem with democracies is that of choosing leaders.  It’s like picking teachers of sex education in schools - those who would be good at it don’t want to do it, while those who are keen would best be behind iron bars.

Our very good friend Music2U4U is again hosting his annual June Freebie Render Challenge which has lots of prizes, so get over there and take a look.  One small prize that I have made is this Saxon shield, based upon stuff found in 1939 in the Sutton Hoo treasure hoard. Following the usual custom it will not be made available to the general public until two or three months after the winner(s) of the competition get theirs.

The next major task to be undertaken is a revival of the shopping centre first issued a while ago and then withdrawn.  I will keep everyone informed about progress on this thread.

For the benefit of those who did not see my original shopping mall, I show the general scheme below.  Eight blocks or rows of shops are to be arranged along two sides and on two levels, all facing inwards.  Nothing is to be changed here, the idea being that the roof, external walls and blocks of shops may be removed or rendered invisible as necessary in order to get in your cameras and lights.

In my Mark II, external parking, bus shelters and roads were included, but I believe this to have been a mistake; they will not be included this time around.  Nor will I include the bouncy castle on the ground floor.  This is available as a separate download if you want it.  Instead, I will include a “Husband Creche” where guys may watch football on TV and drink beer while their women and kids are shopping.  This will be much more to everyone’s liking.

Textures and so on are ready to be moved over from the old model, so (one hopes) this should not take too long to produce.

You baffle me.  Are you saying that you want the version that includes carparks?:blank:

Since the new version doesn’t (if I understood you correctly), then yes — might need ‘em sometime.  Which isn’t intended as a criticism of your decision not to include them in the new version!  It’s a just-in-case thing.

Do they really have “husband creches” in British malls, Skipper, or is that just something you and Beckham are pushing for?

No problem.  Here you go - http://www.ShareCG.com/v/62469/view/5/3D-Model/Shopping-Centre

That leaves me free to work on other stuff.

Dorsey, the husband creche is one of those jokes that has a sharp edge.  There are a few appearing around the country now and the one in my area exhibits a notice, “Is he dragging at your heels, whining and complaining?  Park him here while you go shopping.”  It raises a smile, like mother-in-law jokes, but if you dig deeper you can sense a growing masculine resentment of the greatly increased power of women over the last few decades.  Unless appeased, this will inevitably lead to considerable social unrest, not least increased divorce rates, violence against women and so on.  In that sense, the “husband creche” is a warning signal that should be heeded.

Glad you like it.  There is little point in my continuing with a Mk III when it is mainly a smaller version of Mk II.  No - I have switched my attention to relaunching the model of Cromer pier.

Sorry to hear that — I was looking forward to your new mall, your preview pic is nice!  But I’m sure the new Cromer pier’s gonna be great too.
