Weather balloon type dealy-o's, water and sediment/soil facility in bottom left, greenhouse in center, living quarters far right. Animation will consist of a gondola and some birds.

Plz give crits on changes, additions, keepers, losers, etc. Thx.

Looking good. I might change the shape of the ballons a little, looks a lot like light bulbs. And maybe beef up the cord attached to them as well. looks a little wimpy, but it may just be super stong alien string. ;)

Thanks :thumbsup:

But just so you know, go take a look at some weather balloons:p
It's fairly accurate. I will probably end up changing them to something more high tech when i 3d it, but they will most likely be resemblant of a weather balloon. The cable they are attached to cant be beefy cuz then the balloon wouldn't float.

I appreciate your input, I will probably end up making the cables beefier depending on the new design of the weather balloons.

Thanks again
