I like the color adjustments in B. Once it's shrunk down, the colors look a bit faded.

I'd say the structure still looks fine at the smaller size.

I'm thinking the color fade of the shrunk one is due to the pond disappearing. The building is the same height, but I made it narrower which caused the catwalk to be in the way. I can adjust that so the pond is more visible.

Still prefer the larger park. I did notice that the shadows may not have enough transparency. In the following show I reduces the shadow transparency by 50% -- the clipping is less noticeable while still getting the desired 'this is on the ground' effect. Compare to the unmodified shadow of the Nursery structure to the right of it:

With the recent change I made fixing another issue, I can do that pretty easily with the shadows now.

And yeah, I like the bigger one too. :)

That's a pretty good effect, adjusting the shadow transparency. The clipping is much less obvious.

I based the recreation center off of one of the early drafts for the medical center.

This also ended up with three fairly different overall feels, depending on where I place the upper deck pieces. I thought these were all fairly interesting, and I'm not sure which I like best. I was aiming for the "A" version, but "B" is feels more like the original. "C" is a descent middle ground, though I wasn't necessarily aiming for a compromise.

Preferring the `C` version.

Yeah. I kind of like the B version because it's different. But when considered on it's own, I think the C version looks better.

Given the options shown,  I'd have to agree that "C" is the best one.  "A" looks like it has a Nazi Iron Cross on top of it.  "B" definitely looks a lot like the original.  I keep having in my mind that they all need to look wildly different from the originals, but that isn't really true.  Similar is good if what you're starting with is a good design in the first place.

I suppose that's true. I was more thinking fire department when I saw the symbol, but fair enough about avoiding the perception of hidden nazi symbols.

I'm also seeing the fire horns versus a nazi cross...  :o

All so good, it's hard to choose. I kind of liked A the best, ... but maybe that's saying something about me, and being a stickler for rules.  :-\  Ehh, I'm going to go have a shower.
