Yeah, I think they were the ones at the excel. Thanks for this, although modelling the complex geomtary of a modern plastic seat like this wont be too easy :p

In 3ds max its simple. I just do a low poly version of the seat and apply a mesh subdivision tool, in my case I used turbosmooth modifier.

If you have any kind of subdivision tool in sketchup you can do the same.

I'm looking at some plugins which is a subdivision tool. In the meantime, this is what ive acheved using the tools I currently have. Just plastic and concrete atm, im going to add some steel.



Edit: Good enough :L

Nah, its fine. Quite a few places are like that. ANyway, this terrace would only be open for big games, this is for a club with an old ground which is too big for them with failing attendances, a bit like Wrexham :p
i actually didnt need any plugins to make it, if you like i can make a tutorial

I tried doing a curvy roof based on yours without plugins, didn't take too long and seems to have worked out well Obviously only the top of it is done, but the rest is pretty basic stuff

The roof on my velodrome was probably a smoother curve because the sections are tiny, there it has lots of bigger sections. download it take a look.
Not taking anything away from you, stress's stadium is still really good.

Edit: My detailed seats are really slowing down sketchup :/ Might switch back to semi detailed seats.

it also depends on the structure of the roof, leedsrule's one is a different structural system to mine hence different method of making it in sketchup, each method of making it in sketchup should lend itself to a particular structural system or vice versa. try looking up pictures of stadiums in construction, that should give you the perfect idea of how to build it in what ever 3d modeling software you are using

^ Looks good, I was ngoing to do something like this to go alongside the olympic park but I had no time.

Use both seats and bnches. No idea where the 'best seats in the house' are in baseball but put big comfy chairs there and benches everywhere else.

If you're going for another tier above, maybe use benches in the lower and seats in the upper?

I've taken the screenshot below to illustrate the problem of using complicated seats in sketchup. As you can see in the component window I have up, this seat design has 916 edges and 301 faces. A very basic seat design (made up of two rectangles, one for the seat itself and one for the backrest) has 7 edges and 2 faces. As I'm sure most of you know, the thing that slows down sketchup more than than anything is the amount of polygons (faces). This complicated seat design has 150 times more faces than a basic one, therefore using 150 times more processing power, meaning your computer can only handle 150 times less seats. To put this into context, my laptop usually handles 100,000 basic seats without too much hassle. With the design below, my laptop really started to struggle at just 800 seats.



Of course, the seat doesn't look to be THAT complicated. The problem with this design is the many curves. It is necessary to remember that in sketchup curves are split into smaller flat/straight sections (the default is 12 sections). Therefore instead of an extruded curve counting as one face, it counts as twelve. My recommendation if you want to use more complicated seats is that you keep curves to an absolute minimum, preferably using none at all. If you really require the use of a curve, draw the curve using less sides (the number of sections your curve is split up into. The number of sides is shown in the bottom right corner when you select the curve tool before you draw your curve. I hope this makes sense and is helpful to people?

Im just going by how american baseball stadiums normally are, the best seats are right behind home plate. since this is a small stadium i dont recommend luxury seating behind home plate as those will not sell in a minor league stadium. just make the entire grandstand normal seating and if you are going to add any outfield seating make that bench.

Nope. That quarter circle has 6 sides; i ve made only one side and copy&paste and rotated it. If u make pillars for the rows, its easier.

There will be no 2nd tier. Im thinking that the middle third will have seats, and the other two third will have benches.

Anyway, i designed it for a high school or a little baseball team.

Still so much to do, the facade hasn't finished yet
