    Very charming screen, Fred. You're constantly improving. Really like the the custom wooden supports. The overall atmosphere is pleasant. This just needs a little bit more finish. Great job.

    too much black though, try and mix in some grey, reddish tints on the roofs

    This is a very charming screen, Fred. I agree heavily with BelgianGuy on there being too much black. 


    Overall, this feels rather drab; it needs a pop of colour here and there, but it certainly is not bad! You've got me interested.

    Feels a bit rushed, but overall it could be quite nice with a bit more polish.

    On what kinda stuff you see it as rushed? I didn't rush it. 


    Gonna try some different colors on the roofs. I also found a new fitting wall texture I can use in the buildings. Will show a new screen this evening or tomorrow. Other tips and suggestions highly appreciated :)

    Good work ! I also agree there's too much black

    I like this a lot, especially the flume supports and all that frame stuff! I actually don't mind the black as much, but it'd be nice if you could add a fountain or something to break it up.


    Aside from what others said about the roofs and stuff, I think you should make all of them overhang a bit, or at least add some trims.

    Obviously you have a few things to finish, but it looks nice so far.


    Don't forget path amenities!

    Yeah Fredd, great job on the flume supports, or rather the choice of object. :p


    On a different note, I do enjoy the old rusty mining theme. Just as I said, make sure it's not too orthogonal.

    Not as manically detailed as other stuff we get to see which I like. Very good composition too. Rather likable screen.

    I tried patches of red, gray and black roof. I don't know if this is a real improvement. I tried full red and full gray roofs here and there but I really didn't like those. So it will be these patches or just complete black roofs;


    Otherwise, I don't think Australia's Outback needs more detailing except for landscaping details :p or color, the red clay is enough color for me and the outback is a bare landscape anyway. Some colored flowers wouldn't fit the theme at all.

    Not keen on that multicolour roofs. I'd keep them black, with maybe one or 2 tiles per roof a different colour, not total patchwork like this.


    Just as if the roofs have been patched up in places.

    It's too orthogonal! The wilderness doesn't have such 90° angles for their cross country trails.

    Yeah pick either red or grey and make it work both is too much.

    Trust this guy Fred, he's a RCT Mine Engineering Pro :D

    I'm just gonna stick with black. I tried red and gray but both didn't convince me.
