So I decided to do something just a tad bit different for this weeks 3D. The image I am creating does not have multiple levels, but it still gives an appearance of coming out of the screen in a very subtle way.
So let’s get started. Level 36 gave us a new decoration in a Stolen Bumper Car. It is amusing to see it in Springfield. Now the question is, just how to design with it? Where’s a good place to put it. Well the kid in me wanted to make a fun track with them. Not the normal open square to smash into one another with, but almost more to race around a track and smash each other with. Lol.
I give you my Bumper Cars…Go Kart Style…
First I laid out a basic design for a track with the pavement. I like to use the pavement as it allows you to place items on it.
Then I outlined the outer area of the track with the Large Hedge. I left an opening as the “entrance” to the track.
The inner area I wanted it to look as though the drivers could “see” into the center, so I used the Boardwalk Fence.
Then came some fun designing. I placed some of the cars currently available in the center (as it is a car track) like the Freakmobile, Burns Limo, Chalmer’s 1979 _ONDA, and the Piece-of-crap Car. I also placed two Left-handed Roadsters at the entrance. I know many of these are donut purchased items, I just wanted to give a few different options for any level player. Chalmer’s car and other decorations would work just fine. I also added “car” type decorations too. Pylon/Orange Cone, Gas Pump, Stop Sign,and Barriers.
Just for a laugh, I also moved the Springfield Tire Fire next to it. It fits, right? As for the Stolen Bumper Cars, I randomly placed them all over the track to give the appearance they were being raced. As with most tracks, there will be crashes…so I also displaced a few areas of the Large Hedges to look as though they had been ran into.
I had previously made another one to go with my Noiseland Arcade, so here is a different take on the idea.
So there you have it. Short and simple way to design with the Stolen Bumper Cars. Many more decorations can be added and other items used to outline the area. Now I want to see how YOU would make one. Share your pics on our Flickr and/or link them below. 🙂
Til next time…
