Amusement park modifications

Posted by 0235 on 17 May 2021 in English (English).

So, while adding houses to my town, I decided to spruce up the local amusement park, though I have been waiting for it to fully render to be able to show the work.

It has bugged me for quite a long to how sparse and barren it is, also including only 2 of the 4 toilet blocks! It is also a shame that car parks that are marked as grass display as grey!

Would be nice for the roller_coaster=track to render, as it seems they have been moving to that quite a bit

Before and after

A big mystery though was that my larger screenshots i have for before and after show a mysterious community centre appearing, and some bridges over a river, which i didn’t add myself! relief knowing there is at leat 1 other person out there editing this town!

Location: Kettering, North Northamptonshire, England, United Kingdom

I guess you mean this community centre.

My Aunt and Cousins lived in Northumberland road on the edge of the park when i was ten years old … 1957 .. Heaven! I have added edited a bit in the area after walking it the area either alone or with Kettering Ramblers ( HI all ). Northamptonshire and the Nene have some great footpaths. I was concerned for Wickstead Park when i ran short of income due to covid. Visit it it’s great.

Nice work. While the rendering may not be perfect yet, what I’d really love is an amusement park themed OpenStreetMap layer emphasing POI rather than infrastructure so that we can all see our areas as kids again.
