Yay, slots! I would imagine quite a few people will find use for these, Gravquian. (The Cherry Bonus machine is the one I would play in real life.) Herbie and his lollipops, haha. I like that you included a cash machine. Really nice textures, too. Thanks! :)

Thanks JB. 

   Glad you like them.  As you probably noticed, the cash machine front was
from an image of an actual unit.  I just did a check, and to-date, the Games
have been DL'd... Depot = 11 , MF = 19.  Seats... Depot = 11 , MF = 14.
Hope they get the dl volume the Drink Machs have achieved.

Hey Y'all,

     Back again with a small RCT3 set.  Hope you like it.  :)


( For some reason the above pic would not load to the CS_Depot listing. )
{ Maybe I should have resized it, smaller. }

Quian's JB Entry Pack set
https://www.customscenerydepot.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=4078
http://www.mediafire.com/file/vyh0dbhahkr4fkw/Quians_JB_Entry_Pack.rar/file

     The above image gives you most details on this set.  The CS_Depot link
will be active upon approval.

     The 1.03mb download includes a 4 image Pics folder, a ReadMe, a Textures
folder, and the actual set folder.

*Side Notes* :   Humm...
      1.  Seems it is impossible to make Arched scrolling banners.
      2.  I suck at making a 2 or 3 reco, recolorable texture.
      3.  Arched name banners take a (few) extra steps.  And with
          SketchUp, requires use of the yellow pin (Importer no like).

     If you've comments about anything above... please reply here.  Maybe
you've some helpful hints to share.

Happy Gaming !

Whoa! Thank you, Gravquian. :)  You've immortalized me in RCT3! I just downloaded the entryways and tried them out in-game. I like the pebbly texture. I'm sure I'll be using these; I'm thinking sci-fi or modern theming.

 :D  :D  :D

   You're most welcome, JB. :)

   Sorry the name-banner did not turn out as well as I had hoped.
And, that no diagonals were included of the no-name units.

   Had intended to include some arched Scrolling Sign versions. But I was
unable to produce them (properly). Here is an image of what I tried for.



The 1-item test set won't even display in Sandbox mode.  Using the
Scrolling Sign sid.  Of course, if I use the Full Tile sid, the sign is all
wonkie. So... it is either near impossible to create such an arched
scrolling-sign... or I simply am not getting the settings done proper.
I will experiment with it more.  The arched "window", and arched
"banner" (&/or scrolling sign) are the most time consuming parts.

   Included the used textures, in the download just in case any-one
wanted to do their own matching wall set (or such).  Of course, I've
no complaints if any-one else wants to attempt this Arched Banner
(scrolling sign) project.  Just expect a possible headache or two. :)

{ I already know of a work-around version. And may do 'n' submit lt.
   But it would have no arched scroller. Posterior-painage, yes, I know. }

Happy Gaming

Hey, Gravquian. Isn't there an arched scrolling sign in the game? (Maybe it was custom.) If I remember correctly, the sign wasn't a rounded arch; I think it only had 2 angles, like the peak of a roof. The text would scroll up on one slanted side, then down the other. Seems like I've seen one with 3 angles; same as above but with a level horizontal section in-between the 2 slanted parts. So, if I'm not imagining seeing this, it should be possible to make at least a peaked roof type of scrolling sign. Maybe even with multiple angles, like you're trying to do. I think one with 3 angles would achieve the illusion of a rounded arch sign.

Hey Ya JB,

Thanks for the input.

Yes, about some segmented scroller signs.  Or multi-part scrollers.  I'm possitive that SJJr, and some
others have done such signs.  But it seems I shot for another impossible goal... a true arched scrlr.
{ About like doing unlit textures, with-in an Alpha based texture.  Just won't work.  Dang-it. }

Nearly have a V2 of the Entry Pack ready for import.  Gotta do some testing (and tweaking). Still some
prep stuff to do yet.  Don't want to give to much info for now (in case of human errors).  But I revamped
the name-banner units some.  And am including more objects.  If testing goes well... there will be some
(streight bar) scrolling sign units.  The in-progress set will not require the removal of the first set.
With any luck (and good weather), completion may be by this coming week-end... or next.

Hi Gravquian. About unlit textures within an alpha based texture, doesn't errt's EasyLetters use unlit letters in an alpha texture? (Maybe that's not what you're referring to.)

Hey'ya JB,

Sorry for the delay in responding.  Between work, sickness, and a leaky shed (where I set my computer up)...
darn rain.  I'm way off where I had hoped to be with the revamped set.  The usual "over-kill" in set creation is
crazy stuff also :) .  The shed (& rain) thing... I smoke but Mom don't (and she is on oxygen).  So I set-up out
back in a (Heated, when I'm in there) insulated cheapy shed.  When I can't set up... don't get much done. :)

My loss (I guess), I don't have errt's EasyLetters.  And have never used them.  He may (or may have ?), known
setting and such to use... that I've no clues about.  I attempted to use an alpha with recolorable lettering... and
I tried a (non-black) alpha with unlit lettering.  Sadly, failed badly at those attempts.  I've done a work-around
that I hope will be acceptable.  The first part will have 20 objects, as will Part 2.  Parts 3 & 4 may have 40 (+/-)
items each.  Repeating (again, re-revamped) items that have alternate options selected.  The over-kill type stuff. If completed... a 5th part, will contain some miscellaneous extras.  Then, my revamp will be completed.
Want to finish this project, before venturing into another area new to me.  Or doing a revamp on some scrlrs
in an on-hold project... that is in need of such work.

Hey, Gravquian. I used Errt's Easy Letters to spell out 'Imaginarium' in this pic:



They're un-lit, recolorable, and I'm sure they use an alpha texture (transparent background). I have no idea how it's done, but at least it's possible, it seems. :)

Hey Y'all,

   Crazy, crazy, mixed up stuff happening in our lives.  Guess I'm lucky tho, I'm still working.
{( I'll fore-go the rant about work'n hours and conditions. )}

   Been more busy than a beaver, also, with way to many unfinished projects.  But have made
progress on part of them.  Such as the 3 I'll introduce shortly.  Still being a novice at make'n
CS/CSO for Rct3 ( Rct3P ), I still make many "Noob" mistakes.  Some often bring about a
total re-vamp of a project.  Sadly, that does not always mean improvements.

   Although the following sets have a "Part #" in the name, they are basically "Stand Alone"
groupings. 

   The following sets have been submitted for approval, to the CS_Depot.  Please obtain the
sets via those links (upon their acceptance).  Till then, MediaFire links are available.

QuiansJBEntryV2Prt1.rar
( Quian's JB Entry V2 Prt1 )


   Here is a re-vamp of the "JB's Games Entries" set. I hope this V2 set is an improvement.
All 20 objects are static (non-interactive), and are FT placement.  Downloadable via...
https://www.customscenerydepot.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=4091
(http://www.mediafire.com/file/kz4838c64gw4jl9/QuiansJBEntryV2Prt1.rar/file)

===
QuiansJBEntryV2Prt2.rar
( Quian's JB Entry V2 Prt2 )


   This group is Interactive.  There are 20 objects with FT placement.  Ten have a level bar
type Scrolling Sign.  Ten have an odd custom designed Scroller.  Please do read the text file.
They are interactive, and assigned specific path options.  They worked in my testing, but are
also the first objects I've imported with these type features.  Yes, basically you are getting
only two (3D) models.  But duplicated with different placeing options.  And a choice of two
scrolling signs.  Hope they will be useful to many players.  Downloadable via...

QuiansElizBanrsV1Prt1.rar
( Quian's Eliz Banrs V1 Prt1 )


   My small humble dedication to Elizabeth.  A 20 object FT static set... with her name in it.
Hope Y'all find use for this set.  Downloadable via...
https://www.customscenerydepot.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=4093
(http://www.mediafire.com/file/4h40bwbs15fod3b/QuiansElizBanrsV1Prt1.rar/file)

   Please take note.  I did make an error with this offering.  Found after completion of the
set, and durring testing.  Seems I forgot about "Shifting In-game",  and the 1-meter move
increments up or down, of objects.  There-fore, I bloated this set with 12 un-needed items.
There was no need of the 1h, 2h, nor 3h Banners.  When only the 4h were required.  Sheese
did I not mention novice-born "Noob" mistakes in the 2nd paragraph (way above)?
Please (forgive ?) over look my blunder, and accept this set "as is".  Thank you.

Happy Gameing

Just downloaded all 3 sets from the CS Depot. Thanks again, Gravquian! :)  V2 looks to be even more versatile that V1.

You have a nice set there Gravquian. To quote one of my favorite quotes, "The hardest part is starting. Once you get that out of the way, you'll find the rest of the journey much easier." Wish you luck on your future projects!

Make the magic happen
