Despite the crazy game bugs following the latest update, I managed to finish my TopGolf and i-FLY complex (more shots in my park thread)

Damnation, Derek, that's marvelous stuff..  I shudder to think of the park count of that golf palace ;)

Getting in the christmas mood with a music box.

Let your imagination take you to take great places.

@Coastercad, that music box is amazing. It's pretty quirky too and I like that.

I spent the last few days playing the in game scenarios as I haven't been building rides for ages in PC and needed a fix. I've still got all the ones that came with the updates to do, but here's some shots from the last one in the original campaign, King Coaster. It's also the first time I've really played with the in-game Sci-fi set.

I finally got to log into steam last weekend and update the game with the latest patch. So here's hoping I get to play it at some point soon.

Good to see you back, Forgath.  Hope things have improved for you.

I've been making wooden coasters.

Here's a set of dueling coasters inspired by but not anywhere near a copy of, the sort of thing the Philly Toboggan Company makes.  I like the head-on pass on the 1st drop here :)





And here's something that's pretty much a life-size replica of the "Wildcat" at Lake Compounce, Bristol, CT, a  Philly Toboggan classic built in 1927.  But it's enough different from the real thing that I call it "Bobcat" instead.  The station is weird, boarding from the inside, so fitting a queue in there is a bit of a challenge.

BH, those woodies are so nice!!

Thanks.  I decided I needed to up my game with those so I've been studying real examples.  The duelers are stone simple, what I call a "dogbone" layout.  It's a straight line run out and back and at each end, the 2 tracks cloverleaf away from each other and back to the middle.  There are a couple examples running, both built in the 70s.

The "Bobcat" is also pretty simple but more interesting. I had to watch POVs to figure out how it all worked because from the satellite view, you see the lift and the brake run parallel and side-by-side but no inkling of how the train gets from one to the other.  Turns out, the coasters leaves the station towards the camera in the pic above, then does a right U-turn under the high turn in the foreground, then a long, leisurely stroll to the bottom of the lift.  On the real ride, which doesn't have PC's annoyingly large platform to work around, the U-turn doesn't stick out under the high turn, and there's a shed there for the transfer track, so you can't see this from space.

I also realized I was totally wrong about the station on that "Bobcat" coaster, thanks to more careful analysis of Google street views.  So I moved it out from under the high turn and built a bridge over the track for the queue, which is how the real "Wildcat" is.  So now that it's very much like the real thing, I renamed it to "Wildcat".

I still want to do a few more things to it before I upload it.

Nifty bridge, CSL!  Do I see a bunch of planks wedged in the gaps to make a cool pattern?  It's hard to see from this angle.

Amazing! You must be a really quick builder, or did you do some preproduction?

Thanks very much.
I did a bit of prep, but once I'd made one piece, It was just a case of copying it over to the opposite side and then Advanced Copy Rotate. Even the custom spire didn't take too long

That has got to be about the best ride skin I have seen yet. Love the idea of using the ornaments in the pillar construction.

I am a little disappointed Nemmie.................



That you didn't show a night screenshot. I mean, you can't make something so beatiful and only show it in daytime.
Let your imagination take you to take great places.
