Sup. When I first introduced myself to these forums, I mentioned that I was working on a “Resort project”. Well, after nearly 2 months of work put in so far, I’m proud to release details of the inside of the Sunset Resort for the first time.
Two things to note before we get to the screenshots. First, the resort itself is named the Sunset Resort because the daylight out in the outdoor areas is always set to sunset, which I think adds to the overall atmosphere of the Resort. Secondly, as noted in the topic header, a lot of this Resort is still under construction, so expect this topic to be updated quite a few times over the course of who knows how long. Anything can be added, modified, or removed with and without notice.
With that said, let’s step right in.
—Entrance and Seasons Garden—
Upon entrance of the Sunset Resort, you’ll walk into the Atrium (unless, you decided to take the entrance to the Outdoor area for whatever reason), in which straight ahead you’ll find what I call the Seasons Garden. The Seasons Garden changes every single season according to the Northern Hemisphere. Right now, it is Spring, so the Seasons Garden is full of birch/oak trees and flowers. However, upon the arrival of Summer, the topiary will be replaced with palm trees and shrubs and the like. There’s also changes for Autumn and Winter.
—Plaza and Shops—
If you keep walking straight ahead from the Atrium, you’ll enter the main Plaza. Aside from the advertisements on the wall and the topiary that corresponds with the Seasons Garden, there’s not too much going on in the Plaza right now, but the Shops are a different story.
Our first stop is McDonald’s, because there just absolutely had to be a McDonald’s in this Resort.
For this McDonald’s in particular, I kind of stylized it more like an old McDonald’s rather than the more recent modern ones.
Right below McDonald’s is the Arcade. Ignore all the quarters on the floor.
Meanwhile, right next to McDonald’s is the Vineshop, a store specializing in Vinesauce merch…even though there isn’t a lot in there for some reason. This was also primarly built about Vinny and Joel, but references to other Vinesauce streamers may be added in the future.
This is the spot to grab some spicy hot vinyls from both Red Vox and a rather unknown musician.
After you’re done “shopping”, you can check-out with good ol’ Meat.
Oh, by the way, ignore Mr. Dink’s dead corpse. We’re still in the process of removing it.
Next up, across the Plaza, we got the Trophy Room. This is a pretty simple room, just meant to showcase all the trophies I’ve managed to collect throughout my playthrough of the gameworlds.
And finally, the shop that I put the most passion into, the Sports Grill.
Some elements of the Sports Grill are based off of real-life sports bar and grills in the area I live in. The pictures on the TV’s were achieved simply through gizmo movement, but as you can see, there’s 1 TV left alone so visitors can watch their stuff on that if they so desire.
As of now, the Theatre is still being worked on, but I have created this little concession stand as a starting point. An NPC might be added later.
One of the landmarks of the Outdoors section of the Sunset Resort is the Owner’s Cabin, AKA my place of “residence”. I’ve truly personalized it to my liking, so there’s some gaming stuff and a desk for work and business. I might redo the walls though, they’re looking a bit bland at the moment.
While working on the Sunset Resort, I’ve visited other people’s Resort condos, and out of all I’ve seen, barely anyone seems to touch the Pool area. So, with that said, I touched it up a bit, with a furnished outdoor bar and also umbrella tables around the pool.
—Suites (Supernova Hotel)–
Finally, let’s end things off with the suites in the Supernova Hotel. At first, it was going to be a community condo area, but considering it’s gonna take a while for that feature to come out, I decided to give each room a different theme.
This area is still a heavy WIP, but I have one completed room to show off, the Halloween room, because who doesn’t love Halloween in April?
So, with that, that’s all there is in the Sunset Resort as of now. Being my first big project in Tower Unite, I’m pretty proud of it so far. More stuff will be coming soon, so stay tuned…or not. It’s not like I’m forcing you to.
