Firework Pictures and Videos Thread

Really looking forward to seeing everyones firework displays, especially with a back drop of their park.

Persoanlly Im still waiting for the summer update to install.

Excited. [big grin]
 






My second fireworks display.. 1 minute and 20 seconds long. It contains discs, peonys and lots of high displays too. It has two finales with one being fake. No music yet, can't work out how to synchronize with it. Until I can do that, it is gonna have to be silent :p (also the park is Tropiland :p)

That looks really good! I haven't had the chance of trying the new update and I am really curious to the impact of the fireworks on performance.

Thanks :p The performance is really due to graphics card. Higher graphics card = more performance with fireworks. I have a 960 and haven't noticed any drops at all, only when you see the fireworks through your park. (i.e if you are looking at your park through the fireworks, because this adds extra stress on your graphics card) but really, not much problems. For me atleast :D

That's great to hear! Thanks for the quick answer.
 
As soon as I heard fireworks were being released, I knew exactly what I wanted to do;



Now I know it's a bit messy compared to the real thing, but this was a 15 minute practise and I'm sure some tweaking will make it look really good.



However the fireworks do seem to have a mind of their own in terms of where they are going. I understand some slight movement from wind etc. But considering we can aim them at 15 degree intervals, there's a big threshold in where the firework ends up.

Thats a great idea

but the ingame fireworks definately needs more fire and smoke, looks more real and magical like that

Nice idea to have a general thread for posting pictures of your firework displays!

I have moved this thread to the Community Creations forum + pinned the thread.
 
Last night I have made an nice firework show in my park.

Hmm, it was all HD to me. Very good show.

I made one myself, mostly as an experiment. This video is just the display sitting in an otherwise empty testing lab park. The purpose of this was to
1. Learn how to make fireworks displays
2. Learn how they fit into the PC economy in terms of cost vs. income
3. Try out some ideas for the real display to be installed in Quarantine Island eventually.

So, the basic idea is to gradually build complexity to a big finish. I think there's too much of the former as things really don't get interesting until about 1 minute in. Also, any fireworks at Quarantine Island naturally must have a heavy dose of the dictator's propaganda so the display is a monotonous repetition of the Nicotinan flag colors while the abhorrent Nicotinan National Anthem ("The Ballad of Tentafu") drones on in the background.

IOW, don't expect too much from this. But it's a prototype. The real show will eventually be better ;)

Great Buildup. Are you putting music under it? Would become very nice [up]
That's more praise than this deserves ;) Thanks.

I'm not a fan of musical fireworks shows in real life. One, as an old artilleryman, I prefer to hear the explosions :). But two, due to the distances involved, the lag from the speed of sound always makes the music out of sync with the show. So I was thinking of either having no music at all or just use the Ballad of Tentafu.
 
A quick first attempt at a firework show in my main street.

Hello everyone.

A complete NOOB alert here! This is my first post, first ever game video and first ever time with the fireworks.

Sorry for the low quality - my PC goes into meltdown if I try and run it at high.

I have uploaded the park file to Steam Workshop if anyone is interested in seeing it in full quality (although i am unsure how to make the upload available to everyone, not just my friends.... does anybody have any ideas? )

I'd love it if somone is up for rendering a high quality video for me, I am envious of the above.
 
Recording this was a bit too much for my computer, I had to adjust the soundtrack manually because the image is slightly lagging. It's still beautiful, isn't it?

Like the fireworks very much, but would like to see also some more scenes, how the guests react to the firework, like in the promo video for the Summer Update. Just a litte suggestion.
