Still waiting for the Cooling Towers fix!!

Prev1
Wow never noticed that, nice catch :thumbup: Definitely seems like an easy fix. Maybe they were not aware of it and it will get fixed for the next update now :lol:

    Good point! The current shading makes the tops of the towers look like domes.

    I've been here a long time and I never heard it in here. Doesn't mean it hasn't been mentioned though

    Doesn't look different at all, except for the side the lighted area is on. Makes no change to how it looks (I see no "dome effect".

    Good! You found the mistake! :D It does make a difference in that the new version looks right. The shadow on the inside has to be on the side the light comes from. But tbh I never noticed it before, too... :D

    Maybe keep the power plant occupied? The shadows are invisible when the towers are smoking. I've never noticed the lighting because I like to have the animation going.

    I have the candy cane skin, that stays on all the time.

    Not sure If the shadows are any different.

    It's less noticeable on the candy cane skin. Now if only there were more skins for it. The Pride event would have been a good opportunity. Or maybe even an invisible/clear as glass skin just for laughs. :P

    I remember you mentioned this before, Dotcom. I've always like the dome-like effect, and I put fountains behind them to emphasize it.

    Here's another one to ponder ...all the flags blow one way, the Whacking Day 'snake' windsock blows the opposite direction

    But you can rotate the flags, at least, so that's a user-selected direction. Not sure whether you can get them to match the windsock or not.
