I am not really adept at making custom scenery, but was wondering if anyone had plans to make invisible electric fences for animal enclosures? This would do wonders for visually pleasing rides that house animals. Because the game seems to think that animals have escaped even if they can't leave an elevated platform, a way around this would be either an update from atari/fronteir that allows for natural animal boundries or invisible fencing for rides

Good idea RSoxNo1, at the moment we don't have the flag settings & other info for the new animal enclosures, but possibly in the future it will be available & then some could be made.

Or maybe even rock walls with zero clearance that could be used to hide the fences might be cool?

If you take a look at my newest park (Animalia). You can see that I tried to find ways around the fencing problems. But I didn't want to completely sink all of the terrain. It would be nice if you could build non animal attractions within animal enclosures. Hopefully they have built in a hack to do this.

I hope someday someone will be able to find a way around this... I'd never use the animals as they currently are, but I can see a could ways to use them if it wasn't for the darn fences

I haven't tried yet, but the large rocks I made for my Leftoverz theme might work for this. There's no collision detection so they'll be no problems covering up the fences with them. I don't know if they'll align correctly yet, I never tried it, but I'll check it out before I release the set.
