    Edit: Actually, I opened this thread because I needed some help with my objects. Meanwhile, I am slowly approaching Blender and the TMT. For this reason, I have given the thread a new title and will gradually show my "works" here.


    After a (in my opinion very) long training period, it seems like I can finally bring in my first objects. But obviously I still have some problems with the texture.

    The sign is missing in my view, the color, if you look at it from the front. The whole object looks pale .

    Both during the day and at night, when ILLUMINATED FROM ABOVE.





    Looking at the sign from below or lighting it at night FROM BELOW, the colors are bright.





    What have I done wrong here.

    Another "problem" is that object is invisible from the backside. I could imagine that I did something wrong with reducing of polygons and maybe must recalculate the model, but maybe it's another issue and you can help me out here with some helpful hints



    Any helpful hint is much appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance

    I can answer this one -- PlanCo has forced backface culling, which means that they save resources by only rendering the front of each polygon. You can see this in-game with the Grand Galilean -- move your camera inside the ship and most of it disappears. If you want the back of your sign to show, you have to model that with the normals facing out -- hope that's clear enough.

    After several attempts, our park management finally managed to commit one of the most important figures for our new park



    I think Shrek fits very well into the set, even if he looks a bit stiff at the moment. (Maybe that's the visit to the toilet)

    Nice work on your Shrek TMT items! Good luck with learning how to make TMT items.

    I look forward to more of your adventures with Shrek!

    P.S. on your request I have moved this thread to the Completed Items section and have renamed the thread.

    As Patreon of Sdanwolf, I was allowed to wish for a building or vehicle. I wished for the school bus from "Shrek The Third" and the result is just great. Thanks a lot for this.



    I've posted that picture also in another thread, but the picture also shows another attempt by me to design a sign (Farbucks). A funny fact by the way is that Sdanwolf himself has tried on Shrek's swamp . But I think Planet Coaster was still in alpha phase at this time.

    We need signs like this very much, but why made everyone special signs. The Shrek-Sign is good, but we need signs, we can use for every park and not only for a Disney Park or Shrek Themed Area. Thats my problem whit the Toolkit stuff. I like it very much, but I donīt need it for my parks. I have tried to make more usefull things, but I have not the patience to work with blender, max 3d.....

    But I can make textures for that. An example
