The large round part on the left; the angled 'exit' portion on the right; ivy trailing down everywhere... I love it! Maybe use it as an Alpine ski resort. (We're seeing it during the summer months here.)

Managed to get to work in Kaleidoscope Piers today.  By some Christmas miracle, I've been able to bring blueprints in at 9 or 10 FPS (sounds bad but hey at least I'm building.)

So...the skyline of the West Pier is undergoing some DRASTIC changes...





SLC track by themepark.media (I just redid a bunch of the support work).

@Ricardo1987:  That's a great-looking building!  It would fit right into the more mountainous, wetter parts of the Wild West, anywhere from the east flank of the Rockies to the west flank of the Sierra Nevadas.

@Fisherman:  Wonderful name for an SLC :P

I finished my life-size replica of the "Wildcat" at Lake Compounce.  It's probably about 90% accurate.  The download's over in the rides section if you're interested.

@Bullethead and Fisherman: Those coasters are wonderfully made! Art on itself.

@Ricardo1987: Your buildings make me feel part of a western movie. Gorgeous details!


Since months i got to spend some time ingame again. I tried to stay in the spirit of these days and create a Xmas tree with lights. Im not happy with it yet but its getting there.

Good to see you, Forgath!  I like your trees.  If you're not happy with them, maybe mix in some of the short droopy strings to add some variety.

Thank you Bullethead. And yes, ive been considering the curves strings. In my idea however it would not look good, the 'loose drops' in the string if there is no branch.  I'm probably taking it to serious  :blush:

I finished up another life-size coaster replica that's been in-work for a month or so.  This time, it's the CCI "Great White" at Morey's Piers.  It's over in the rides section if you want it.

Thanks.  But this one was built in 1996.  It's barely old enough to drink  :o  The previous Wildcat, OTOH, is 91, same age as my father, who farts dust but drinks like the sailor he was in his misspent youth ;)

Tested the TMT today with a very simple billboard I made in Blender with 2m x 1m x 10cm in size. The texture is a 256x256 pixels png. The file size of the TMT upload is 72kb, the received converted pcugc file is 196kb. The workshop upload eats already 0.384 Mb... But still ok.

The building is something for a new park I'm planning...
A lot of greets, Corkscrewloop :)

Nice billboard corkscrewloop!
And thats a well made coaster Bullethead :)

I spend time on creating a winter scene. No pictures yet to show but hopefully soon.

Corkscrewloop, is it possible for users to apply their own textures to that billboard or will it always say "Ice's Boutique" ?  Either way, though, keeping the file size that small is an admirable achievement, and the sign looks very good.

Forgath:  glad you like the coaster.

Thank you.  Adding a car track-ride through the buildings and scene is an idea in my mind to give it more meaning.

Thanks Bullethead! Users own textures are not possible yet with TMT objects I think. This object here will always say "Ice's boutique" or whatever I put as a writing / logo on the texture, before uploading into TMT.

Nice billboard corkscrewloop!
Thanks! And a nice scene you are building, Forgath!

Now a test with flexi color feature:

However, flexi coloring the writing produces mixed results, depending on the chosen color...

A lot of greets, Corkscrewloop :)

Just this little project I started. Trying to create a 1:1 scale B&M hyper with a two tone spine. Thickening of the spine is insanely time intensive! ::)

@The Grey:  I seem vaguely to recall that red Arrow-looking coaster.  Glad to see you're back on it.

I got a lot done on my life-size replica of the Schwarzkopf portable double-loop thingy, the only example of which is no longer portable.  It's called "Colossus the Fire Dragon" and is at the Lagoon somewhere in Utah I think.  It's only about 80-90% done as yet.  All the supports you see except the circles around the loops are custom.

Thanks Bullet! It's a Tedious process but the results are coming out stunningly! The main reason it's taking so long, is on the curved pieces, each and every "small block" needs to be hand rotated and moved into position (accurately) to fit each "small block sized" section. Currently the best method is to complete each track section tie to tie and each section consists of exactly 32 blocks! Depending on the shape, each section is taking me anywhere from 15 minutes for the straighter pieces to 30 minutes for the curved ones towards the bottom! Not to mention I have to make each track tie to compensate for the enlarged spine! You can really see how skinny and off the in game track really is! Here's a video on how I did it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3XqobLAX_w&feature=youtu.be

Wow, that's a lot of work!  Why did you put each block on from scratch instead of extruding (with CTRL-X) from the previous block?  If you do that, then the new block will be lined up with the old block and you won't have to fiddle so much getting the new block lined up.

I did some of this sort of thing yesterday on that double loop Schwarzkopf above.  And all for nothing :).  See, despite having played this game extensively for 2 years, I had NO IDEA you could change the colors of individual track pieces in the track editor.  I thought you could only do global colors from the ride's customization tab.  And when I did that, I couldn't get the colors right for the loops.  They had yellow legs but the whole upper part was blue like the rest of the track.  That just didn't look right.

So....  I spent a couple hours carefully stringing blocks all along the loop supports, so I could paint the blocks yellows.  It looked awesome :)  I got 1 loop done, felt proud of myself, and sent a screenshot to Fisherman.  And he said, "You know, you can just select the loop in the editor and repaint it by itself".  D'OH!!!!   :facepalm:  So, I deleted all my hard work and just repainted the loop supports.  But I'm not bitter.  I learned a very useful thing which will help a lot in the future.   B)

So, the reason I'm not extruding (CTRL+X) is due to the fact that individually placing the pieces "Aligns with surface" which Is why I can get the spine to follow the track so closely. Each block is technically at different tilt, rotation and angle (only applies with the banked and curved sections of track) If the track is straight, then I can CTRL+X.  I technically have only one finicky adjustment instead of 3. With my method, the game does two of the adjustments for me and I have the correct tilt and angle that follows the track block by block, and I essentially just have to rotate the block correctly and align it with the previous block and its on to the next one. Hopefully that makes sense!
