Title: VIP RiverKit
Post by: Orange_o_ on October 07, 2011, 04:38:39 PM
It's been long as you have seen in Antigone and on previous topics, my raging river.

Many of you have to ask me, unfortunately it was left unfinished.


The solution was to finish it. But if it had not been done so far, it was becaufe the one hand, other projects were in progress, but mainly because I was not completely satisfied.

His appearance was "too fast" for some, and color unpleasant. It was made in a hurry and its evolution was limited.


I never upload this river, sorry.  &mmm





But I created a new river, which I hope will satisfy you as much, and perhaps more.

The aim is to create a river MMP, with different aspects. Rapids, to the calmer waters, creek to river...

Hi Girafe,
this new water looks really awesome, makes me eager to play with it.  :)
But the old version is not as bad as You think,  $%Grinno$%  i know a lot of rivers and creeks with a more brown earthy water and You should think about not to stop this one. Hope, im not the only one...
Great work as always, im addicted to Your stuff since i found it for the first time,  :)
greetz, Carl

Too bad, that you don't upload the old river. I liked the color and also the "fast" part.

The new one is also great.

Youre wrong !  :P

As much as I love the new set , this is something else and so , I join my voice to those requesting the release of the previous one

That's incredible. The river looks like it was real. I feared, it would run out of my screen, when I saw it the first time.  $%Grinno$%

As we already talked about cooperation, now I think that I won't continue working on my riverkit. Yours is so much better than mine...

That riverkit looks really amazingly realistic.

But I do not think that you should stop developing the other one. I saw it used in Badsims MD and it also looked really good.

The problem is that the basically blue texture of your new creation won't fit into rocky areas as good as the older one does with its greyish texture.

@Knapp: Please don't stop working on your PW-tiles. I do not at all think that it is worse it is a different approach.

Where I'm from the rivers and creeks usually don't have any water, they only fill and run after a rainstorm....and the water is very dirty as its carrying a bunch of sand and weeds with it.  &mmm

I'd like to add my voice to the chorus...please release both the older river kit with the fast, grey waters AND the new one with the calmer, bluer waters.  Anyone familiar with me knows that finding realistic PW has been a mission for me for many years and I really like what you have done.  My wish list includes: slope tolerant PW, transition tiles for PW/GW meetings, and, with your (hopefully) new additions, non-rapids matching PW so we can plop seamless transitions of river water moving from slow/meandering to falling/rapids.  Being slope tolerant is the big issue, as rapids, in real life, do not occur over flat or low slope waterways, they occur over steeper slopes...that's what makes the water move faster and more violently.

Keep up the good work!  I wish I knew how to do what you do, then I could try my hand at solving the PW problem, too!

Wow, I think that everyone above said all that should have beem said. Both are amazing and we'd be very grateful if you released both.
Just one question: What does PW mean?
Title: Re: VIP RiverKit
Post by: Girafe on November 13, 2011, 03:34:20 PM
PW = ploppable water  ;)

I will humbly add my two cents to the conversation. I would love to be able to choose from both of your stellar creations but I would gladly use either. These are amazing.

Hello!
I know that nothing more has been written a long time
and has not worked on the water on.
I'm interested in whether this magnificent water will eventually be completed.
I would love to install it in my landscapes. It is easy
wonderfully.  :thumbsup:

LG Fasan  ;)

10 years after   ::)

A few days back, a member PM me to see if I would be willing to share Orange_o_s RapidRiver Kit. This happens regularly, and regularly I reply that being not the creator and considering that David never wanted to release it, it would break the communty rules. This  obstinate member contacted then David directely who replied him that ... he didn't kept the files, and told me to ask you or Girafe if you could send them to me.   David being retired for years with no intention to come back, Im assuming that he dont want (so dont I) to be regularly bothered by such request, I have so decided to share it in this thread, via a link to my DropBox.

The 13 pieces of the kit;

It looks good even at extra zoom SizeOf 8;

David was a pioneer. ;)

the MMP ends by the waterfall piece, which, personally, Ive never been able to place correctely (the model being partially underground it probably requests to be plopped on slope) . The whole set is rather touchy to use and requests some training before to master it. Plus, the straight borders of the various pieces request patience and skill with other MMPs to hide them, but, well thats now your affair !

I have modified Davids MMP properties for more flexibilty and added a blank final model, all pieces are also available as props (under LE, search for VIP_Or_RapidRiver01, 02 , 03, etc.) .
