Fall Summer Showdown FSD 2017 *Final Results*
« on: August 25, 2017, 07:51 PM »

Intro
The smell of Fall is in the air, leaves are ready to Fall and kids are going back to school. Down at Uncle Smith's Farm however, things are just heating up. Uncle Smith's Farm host an annual Fall festival for the local town folk. This year however they want to go bigger and better then ever.

The Challenge
Over the next two months they need your help! Every two weeks a new challenge will be released in which you have to complete. Some may be a cake walk, other will require more attention. At the end of each challenge a judging panel will rank all entries. The person with the most points at the end wins.

The Fine Print
At the start of the competition you will be asked to make a thread for your version of Uncle Smith's Farm. A file will be provided then. You will work with this park file for the duration of the competition. You will need to post a determined set of pictures prior to the deadline. Each challenge will have some rules but for the most part it will be free reign.

I do request that you sign-up if you would like to compete though you may join at anytime. (You may not be able to catch up but you can still have fun.) Likewise I need a few judges to help judge entries. If you are interested in that, please post below. Worse comes to worse it'll be just me.

Schedule:
1st Challenge: Starts September 1st, Ends September 17th
2nd Challenge: Starts September 15th, Ends October 1st
3rd Challenge: Starts September 29th, Ends October 15th
4th Challenge: Starts October 13th, Ends October 29th

Final Results:
AdventureWorld Europe by Tayspru
Mr. Mott's Pumpkin Park by DasVideoDude

Insomnus by Cling87
Farm Of Forgotten Legends by Kiotho

I really don't think I'll have the time to compete, with university starting the fourth of september, and it will take a lot more time than last. I do think, however, I can find the time to be a judge. I would love this to go on, so if you need one, sign me in for the judge panel!

Cling87 makes a great point ! Showdowns have always been about pushing the boundary of theming and immersiveness , this does sound more like temporary / quick attractions on a farm ... maybe the format could tweak ? I would suggest just alter the "story" so that there's a high budget and "3 years" until the park needs to be ready to open?

I agree with Tayspru, I feel like we'd be doing some sort of fall carnival.


Please let us know if we're wrong and you have bigger things in mind.

I 100% with the concerns given. I think I threw you guys a little off with the storyline. (If you really think about it, it would be unrealistic anyway for the most part.) It will not be a plop and play competition. Hopefully that aliviates any concerns without giving too much away.

In that case sign me up for real :D

Are we gonna work anonymously again? I kinda like that and I think it's fun for people to try to figure out who made what as well.

BTW shouldn't it be FSD?

I have no issue with that, however without at teams that is a few new accounts. We would need to make sure that is alright with ShyGuy. Do you have another idea just in case?

In the past, before secret profiles, we just sent our images/submissions to whoever was hosting the competition, and they posted anonymously for us. Could do that, maybe?

This seems right up my alley but part of the fun in Showdowns for me was team collaboration.

Will definitely be following :mad:up:

I guess that will work. (As long as Panda signs up to judge so we have three judges. :P)

I was surprised by the turnout. Hopefully next year if successful we can drum up even more interest for teams. :)

Challenge 1 will be out in about 12 hours or so from this post. There will be some minimal CS required to set the story if that is alright with everybody.

You know what, I'll throw my hat in the ring since I love fall projects and I need something to keep my seasonal schedule busy on weeknights. :mad:up:

However I will just be here to judge, not to make results threads or videos for the showdown (shudders).

RCT-3.org (now coaster-games.org) really needs some attention. What about this: Someone who speaks german and doesn't participate in this competition hosts the competition there so members from coaster-games.org who want to do something competetive can join the competition as well.

So, nearly four months later we have our final results. :P I do want to thank everyone that entered and competed, to see all of these parks was a treat. I personally learned even more and if we decide to continue a competition in RCT3 (and I hope we do) that the next one will be even better. I will be sending out a survey later so please fill it out when you have time. So without delay, here are our winners for the Fall Showcase Showdown!


AdventureWorld Europe by Tayspru

If you are surprised by this one, then you haven't been following FSD very well. :P Tayspru decided to go all in and completely take the park to new  concepts. As hinted by the park name, the park focuses on different sections of Europe. The park was highlighted by Vampire, and Arrow Suspended Swinging Coaster. (I should mention he also went all in and merged in the Zolare track as well so the track could bank. Not easy if you know how this works.) Overall I think I speak for everyone when we hope Tayspru will continue this park into the future. :)



Mr. Mott's Pumpkin Park by DasVideoDude

A very close second, DasVideoDude decided to play more on the original park but with a nice twist. The park features a custom Arrow looper was well as various smaller attractions for those looking for something not as intense. DasVideoDude does intend to continue this park so keep a look out!



Frontier Farms by The Grey

This park shows the dedication gets you somewhere sneaking into third. While very basic, this park goes back to the heart of RCT3, simple and clean. Viper, the parks defunct manufacturer challenge coaster is complete with a custom layout as well as a detailed station and gift shop. We hope to see the completion of Fang and more from this park soon!

Congrats to everyone who participated. The winners did absolutely amazing, and thank you for showing off your incredible designs. I am inspired to renovate my parks to have the same level of detail as you all. Awesome work!
