I'm stuck ???  ::)
I've been wrestling with getting the roof right and I'm not even that sure if the roof is needed. The look I'm going for is that the roof hasa always been there, its removed from life on the surface but the people who live here think nothing of it. To us, the visitors to the place, it is utterly incomprehensible. Created by means and to a purpose unknown. I've tried vairous grids, they kind of look like a green-house, I've tried great stone trees and gossamer dragon fly wings but each is too noisy, they intrude on the scene too much. The stand-in (opt 6) I like the most but it needs more and I kind of like the spirals.

Suggestions please :) I really am stumped as to where to take this and I would really like to finish this one :)

Cheers

I am really hung on '5a' as being the best for its uniformity and color. It blends well with the mountains; and, the brace that you've put in at various intervals. Great work on this one! I do like the landscape of '3'.

A monorail would be nice - but, maybe I'm asking too much.

No.6 for sure! Although, they're all really cool. I like the last one immensely but I think you should lift the outer fractal from numbers 1, 2 and 4 and replace No.6 fractal with that.
Amazing workroof, man!

Henry Blewer

I like tests 3 and 6. 6 is the best one.  Excellent work Richard.

For me its a tough choice between 5A and 6. I'd probably go with option 6 because it is the most unique and therefore most unlike any ring world before it.

Tangled-Universe

3 or 6.
I choose 6 over 3 because 6 has more feel of floating in space, while in 3 there's more feeling as being "captive".
I like the POV and hues of 3 though.
Fantastic work!

Number 6, definitely! Not too eye catching and distracting from the superb surface, but immensely there. How did you make these grids? Lightwave? They're fantastic!

I'm just going to put in a vote for 5b because it's so unusual. 3 and 5a are also good.

cyphyr

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I have an idea of a way forward now :)
Funny sometimes how you have go go on a long journey to come nearly back to where you started. No-one went for 4, which I thought had great potential. 6 has been the standin until I could come up with something better but it looks as if its almost right as it is ... .. .

Richard, this is truly awesome, and I think you're right with 6. It suggests strength in structure without being invasive on the sky. Well done, this must be some of the best work I've see with TG.

Perhaps #6 with a slightly more dense pettern ?
Hmmm... wonder what this button does....

Seth

#6 is the best to my eyes too

MacGyver

My choice would be 3 with the hexagons. I really could imagine to live there :D
