Haha, how wonderful to have an update... such nice work too!

And yes, get a canopy on there, stat. Perhaps even a little platform for a little bit of a game wrinkle?

Thanks!

”Game wrinkle”? Please explain.

Wonderful work Peder. Sublime to the core. Canopy would just complete this wonderful project.

Best wishes,

Great to see this back in production Peder. One of the all time great LAF projects. Long live the chicken race! :)

I wondered who necro'ed this thread and then I see it was the creator, and for good reason :)
Cool additions, insane detail!

Always keen to see this thread re-visited, just exciting creations. Love the bathing beauty, have a number of those type vignettes in my collection. The Eureka one is my favourite.
Cheers,

Sorry, probably should have said something like "add to its playability".  :P

In any case, you could go many different ways. The basic one of course is just a fabric canopy over hoops or beams. However you could make it a hard top with railing which would add a defensible fallback point or observation deck.

A sort of compromise would be to have the forward third/quarter of a canopy as an actual platform, with any fabric canopy making up the rearward portion. So only a little sort of bridge, as it were (is the barge pulled along from shore or do they have a tow? A small command platform would certainly be appropriate in the case of the former).

Oh and one other idea I had was to have rolled up netting or additional canopy tied up along the top horizontal edges, thus leaving the sides open, but suggesting the travel compartment could be additionally sheltered (probably ineffectually) by drop-down curtains in case of inclement weather, a swarm of locusts, or what have you (but not, of course, the stray arrows of incensed locals).

Glad to see my effort are so engaging. :) There are many other considerations with this game (and I have gotten lost in details many times in trying to compete it) so I will have to think carefully before I invest any more in the comforts of the International Pytheas Society.

You are kind. At the same time you should know it is me spending time on too many details like this that has stalled this project.  :)
