Hello all. It's time for the eleventh developer diary for School Simulator.

The Discipline Master series has used more or less the same models for the school campus buildings and rooms since Episode 1. Indeed many of these models are even older; going all the way back to Magnus3D's Bottom Line Comics. These will be largely be retired for School Simulator, with a new generation of models being used to build our new virtual school.

Today I wanted to show the design of the new campus, or at least the best I can using text, showing the much larger size than previous D.M. games:

Main Building
The main building of the campus has three floors. This is where the main classrooms are as well as most teacher and administrative offices. It has a central section with two wings on the sides (left for juniors, right for seniors). It looks something like this: |_| ; current layout is as follows:

Central [Floor 1]: Stairs <-> Offices <-> Entrance Area <-> Conference Room <-> Stairs
Central [Floor 2]: Stairs <-> Offices <-> Restroom <-> Offices <-> Stairs
Central [Floor 3]: Stairs <-> Offices <-> Restroom <-> Offices <-> Stairs

Left Wing [Floor 1]: J1 Classroom - J1 Classroom - J1 Classroom - J1 Classroom - Restroom - Shared J1 Teachers Office
Left Wing [Floor 2]: J2 Classroom - J2 Classroom - J2 Classroom - J2 Classroom - Restroom - Shared J2 Teachers Office
Left Wing [Floor 3]: J3 Classroom - J3 Classroom - J3 Classroom - J3 Classroom - Restroom - Shared J3 Teachers Office

Right Wing [Floor 1]: S1 Classroom - S1 Classroom - S1 Classroom - S1 Classroom - Restroom - Shared S1 Teachers Office
Right Wing [Floor 2]: S2 Classroom - S2 Classroom - S2 Classroom - S2 Classroom - Restroom - Shared S2 Teachers Office
Right Wing [Floor 3]: S3 Classroom - S3 Classroom - S3 Classroom - S3 Classroom - Restroom - Shared S3 Teachers Office

AUX Building
[Floor 1]: Stairs - Bandroom - Music Room - Entrance Area - Infirmary - Security Room - Restrooms - Stairs
[Floor 2]: Stairs - Computer Lab 1 - Computer Lab 2 - Art Room 1 - Art Room 2 - TV Room - Restrooms - Stairs
[Floor 3]: Stairs - Science Lab 1 - Science Lab 2 - Science Lab 3 - Science Lab 4 - Misc Class - Restrooms - Stairs

Gym Building
Gym / Indoor Arena <-> Weight room <-> Home locker room <-> Guest locker room

Theatre Building

Library Building

Canteen Building

Outdoor Arena

Exterior
There are currently 10 exterior maps that wrap around the school.

I'm going to leave it there for today. Next time we'll talk more about the classrooms, which are being designed and presented a bit differently than the standard maps.

Lastly here are few early renders (no-touch work having been done or backgrounds added) of some of the new maps:
