Hospital Building Progress

Here are some photos of the hospital. I have positioned them in some different layouts to give ideas of what can be done.

  To the left is the "basic" hospital. I plan to pop the PDF online with one ward colour (grey), and the 3 hallway parts shown (which are shown in grey). It will allow the builder to create a ground floor, 2 ward hospital for smaller games. This is perfect for the "Mega deal" of hospital beds as each ward fits 8 beds (so 16 altogether!).


 An expansion pack will be released later which will include a 4th bit of hallway (the part connecting to the green ward). This allows the ward to go as wide as you like. It will also include a stairs/lifts to get to a further floor, and new wall prints for the "longer hallway" part, which will accommodate for the lifts/stair doors.
As the expansion pack allows you to go wider and taller, I will also provide a "fire escape" stairs to connect to the exterior (left).
Photo to the right shows the the "basic" size, which goes up to a second level. I will also be working eventually on an entrance pack, which will connect to the mid section. It's not essential, it's just something hard core gamers might like as an "add-on".






To the left is the "ultimate" layout. It will have 3 wards along the back, and two wards on the front, and an entrance in the middle. This is the design I am aiming to build, although it will take up



Right: Shows how the lift/stairs and entrance would connect to the centre piece of hallway/corridor.
Finally, an alternate layout which I might do one day. I'm only doing this as a side project when I get bored of sculpting and stuff.









That's all for now with the hospital. I'll probably start uploading stuff to the website for it next month. Ohh totally forgot, so a few weeks ago I was talking about moving and houses all going too quickly. About a week after I wrote that blog, a new apartment popped up online, we went to see it and agreed to it there and then! It has a great sized 2nd bedroom, which is perfect to make as a proper office/workroom. It has a master bedroom with ensuite, main bathroom, and an open plan kitchen/lounge. The lounge is a little on the small side, but it should be good enough to get a sofa and dining table in there (with the TV and bookcase of course!). We get the keys on Sept 6th, but we plan to move in on the 7th. So we've been packing things up, which means a lot of my sculpting/hobby/business stuff has been packed up!! But it's ok, I'm keeping a bare minimum of stuff out to keep me going!

Righty oh then, that's all until next time. Cheers again to everyone who has bought some of the recent items!

  2. That hospital is going to have a real "wow" factor when you finish it. I did smile when you mentioned an add-on pack for "hard-core gamers!" That would be me, then, hee, hee, hee!

  5. Congrats on the new house!

    I see you got it all figured out for the hospital, being so adaptable. I was thinking, maybe you could do a more "post apocalyptic" type and add some blood stains on the floor and the walls, and some rubbish and such on your basic design to get even more variety in? So the builder could pick either nice and clean or messed up templates :P

    1. Cheers Mathyoo! I plan to bring out many "add-ons" for the hospital, one of which will be a zombiefied version, blood stains, bullet holes, random blood foot prints etc. I want to give as much choice as possible, so if people want one thing but not another, then they only have to buy one type. I'll make them all cheap so people can buy as many as they need/want :)

  6. Love it! This isreally starting to grow!

    People can add the odd bloodstain here and there if they want to. A big smear or a pool of blood in the middle of a hallway. All adds to the feel of it.

    Well done so far mate!

    1. Cheers! Yeah they can alter it to however they want it to look. I will be bringing out a fully zombified version as well, I'm kinda excited about that hehe
