Billboards are now available on Steam Workshop.
Below is published:

- BB1 Billboard (Billboard with its support already attached - fixed)
- BB2 Billboard Support (stand alone support to be used with BB2 Billboard screen)
- BB2 Billboard Screen (stand alone screen to be used with BB2 Billboard support)

Because BB1 and BB2 are different you can add both and they can have different images on them.

If you change all the shader type for slides (S1 - S3) from bumped2 to bumped alpha unlit then it is like the board images give light. Give it a try, looks much better!
See here with unlit image planes:

Hope you like it.

Can I ask? Where in SW does the noticeboard appear? I've looked in the obvious place - custom scenery - nope and I've even looked in custom flat rides, again no show. (I can't believe its an environment, park of the month or a general park).

Would love to have this item in my parks - if only I could find it!

Hi BigDraco,

When I look on the Steam Workshop and search for most recent items they all show up. Are you sure they are not there? Maybe it is different for me then for you however they are set to Public. I did notice that the in game SW does not show all the content either on my side but I'm not sure if it is related to my poor internet connection. Anyway if I look on Steam itself it does show up under scenery objects.

Let me know if you can see them when looking for most recent items.

If you go on Steam and choose workshop most recent, you will see them. Select what you want and subscribe. Then when you open TPS and go to the workshop and select subscribed in the drop down menu you will see them.

Yes - I've got it now!

Up till now I was only clicking on the "SW" icon within TPS. All I ever saw were items under the "All" category.

I wasn't aware of the link to TPS in Steam itself - http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/browse/?appid=254590&requiredtags%5B0%5D=TPS+Custom+Scenery&actualsort=trend&p=6 so I wasn't aware of all the other goodies (like Abletudu's dragon - I MUST HAVE for me!)

Now I know to go to this page and subscribe to the bits I want to use - its much easier. I'm still not sure why certain other items don't appear under the "All" category but at least I've resolved this with your help.

If anyone else has the same problem - subscribe to items on the above link and then get to them under the subscribed banner.

Seems like it is not my internet connection then. I have the same, not everything is showing up in the list when using the SW in TPS itself. Better to browse on Steam itself!

For the Billboards BB2 and BB1 please change the shader type to alpha unlit for the image planes if you want the image to light up. As long as TPS does not save the shader type we have to change it manually every time we add it to our park. I'm sure it will be fixed soon.

Just a side note (and not intended to detract from this thread): If you have any items that you have uploaded to the workshop, you can list them at http://forum.themeparkstudio.com/index.php?topic=2090.0 with a screenshot and description.

Thanks Abletudu,

Have not noticed it. Will add it tomorrow to that list as well. Maybe a good idea to make separate thread for each category, like custom scenery, flat rides, coasters, etc. to keep things in order.

I have asked that when posting, that it is catagorized, so far coasters alone (right now have to be parks) are not possible at this time, but I anticipate that it will be at some future time.

Awesome! That's exactly what I need for my new project... 8)
