80's Video Store

80's Video Store


https://www.mediafire.com/file/6cw4a0xw ... e.zip/file

A near exact replica of our local Blockbuster before it closed in the early 2000's

A very simple map with a nice cozy atmosphere.

The idea was to fill up the shelves with a couple hundred movie boxes from the 80's and 90's, until I quickly realized it would require over 2000 boxes to fill up the entire store, so I settled on only about a dozen or so.


& Happy New Year

What a trip down memory lane. Love how exact the texture for that berber carpet pattern is.

There used to be a Blockbuster around the corner from me, about a mile's walk, and I did have a number of late fees accrued with them (for obviously no good reason) but then the entire chain of stores disappeared and I didn't have to pay them.

A little off topic, but... Don't tell anybody!

Don't feel bad EG I never payed my late fees either, otherwise the map is definitely good. Love the ode to the '80's and that carpet!
I miss $1.99 movie theaters, .25 cent candy bars, and a bucket of popcorn bigger then your head for $2.75. I miss going into a magical carnival with tattoo covered contortionists, big breasted bearded ladies, and a half man/half woman exhibitionist named Taylor handing out tickets for the latest roller coaster ride, instead of having all three of these either taking my coffee order, ringing my groceries up at the super market, or deciding whether or not I get a bank loan today. Shims and Shmoos, Herms and Hawombs. Everything changes (good or bad).

Yeah, nice map - great atmosphere - loved the late fees touch - made me laugh when I paid the penalty :gj:
