Nice to see an update, cody. (Now I need to do the same.) Looking forward to seeing Tomorrowland up close and personal.
The inside of Tomorrowland is definitely taking inspiration to the layout of WDW, with of course minor changes. I have been working on most of my projects, but have been doing about a thousand things on the side as well.

Nice update! Excited to see how both Pandora and Tomorrowland turn out. Especially curious to see how you execute Pandora as it really has not been done in RCT3. I know you are not doing a recreation but I don't think anybody has really done anything with Pandora as far as a dedicated land.
Pandora is definitely a beast to be doing, I am taking a different approach from when I started the land. Flight Of Passage has seen some deconstruction after its second launch. In the second to last screenshot, hopefully you can make out one of the floating mountains. This is definitely an engineering marvel, and a RCT3 pain. Hiding beams is a bit hard in the game, but with just the right plants you can do it. The bottom of the rocks being used is not textured, so more rocks had to be used, and this was another challenge to get the colors to match up. The appearance of my Pandora is definitely different than that of the one at Disney's Animal Kingdom, but it is crazy enough to work.

As for Tomorrowland, the hard part is of course working with some limited scenery, but getting crafty is the main component that is making this version work. The colors I am actually really proud of, and I am in love with how the land is looking as a whole. I did not change any of the predetermined experiences at all, so that made it a bit easier to create the path of the peoplemover, all I needed was other buildings with one housing the station which will be denoted as the Tomorrowland Public Transport Co., since having a constantly moving attraction in RCT3 is nearly impossible with it functioning.

He's not alone.. :whistling:
I saw the preview and yours looks great, I did see one of our experiences made its way into your version. I love the lighting in yours and the landscaping is really incredible, glad I got a preview!

Since I did the update, I have gotten the buildings fully laid out. Now I am determining which experiences I want in this Tomorrowland. My old concepts called for Mission Space and Soarin' in Tomorrowland, but I am leaning towards something different. I am trying to keep Tomorrowland IP free, but some have been present in other Tomorrowlands for so long, they are practically tradition. The goal is to get this to be a Tomorrowland that is timeless and have a clean/modern(ish) look and feel to it.

As for Pandora, I am trying to get the floating mountains to have that look that is "just right," then I will plot the new layout for Flight Of Passage. I want Pandora to feel as natural as possible, and hide it from the kingdom that is outside. Pandora is one of those areas you have to really check your sightlines at various heights, especially for Flight Of Passage. That is why the trees are much taller, to hide Cinderella Castle and the rest of the park.  Once these tasks are done, then getting the lighting just right should not take too much time.

I love the idea of adding Mission Space and Soarin to Tomorrowland as this will be unique from your usual Disney Park Tomorrowland.

(RCT3) Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort Dubai: Brief Update (1/10/20)
« Reply #423 on: January 10, 2020, 07:45 PM »
Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to share the recent news on this project because I am making big changes and tinkering around to make sure everything is just right!
  • The Tomorrowland Interplanetary Society (Mission: Space) was announced (Discord). Flights will start soon!
  • To fit Mission: Space, the Alice in Wonderland mini-land will be moved to a different location. The land where the future It's a Small World was going to be is now going to be utilized for Alice in Wonderland, as well as other IP's. It's a Small World will still find a home in Fantasyland at a later time.
  • Adventureland concepts are being planned, future updates may potentially include development of Adventureland and Pandora: The World of Avatar.

Overall, I have a lot of concepts being lined up for Disneyland Park. Tomorrowland is becoming a big focus on concept development and is somewhat leading into the developments of other areas/experiences. I hope to have a photo update soon!

(RCT3) Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort Dubai: Additions (2/23/20)
« Reply #426 on: February 23, 2020, 04:06 PM »
Happy Sunday everyone! I have been busy with so much, but this weekend I have taken the time to come back into RCT3 and get creative. I am still busy with my education, but I am trying to work everything out to where I have most weekends for leisure.



For nearly 3 years, this has been the entrance to Disneyland Park. Of course there have been numerous changes, but it still has its original charm.



The sign says welcome, but the magic has already started!



Another classic shot. The attraction posters are still one of the best parts of this entrance. There are some unique ones you will not see at a Magic Kingdom park (unless things happen).



As always, Mickey and the Magician is busy! I cannot think of a time when this does not have a huge mass of guests.



But, one of the few reasons I am here is one of the biggest in the park's history. For those who have been paying attention to news at the Magic Kingdom in Florida, we have our own bit of news.



Cinderella Castle has seen some love! The paint-job took numerous attempts at getting the colors just right and making sure it was not too drastic of a change, but I think the creative team nailed it!



The colors chosen were influenced by the news of the Cinderella Castle in Florida getting painted in preparation for the 50th. I think our colors are of course going to be a bit different, but I feel this could be a good representation of what is to come.



The next area I want to get into is Tomorrowland. The bad thing is that there are still in-game paths present in this area, but that is for guest flow. A trick is to use the in-game paths so you know where the guests will go instead of using an invisible path and having little to no idea.



The main takeaway from this photo is that the Mission Space or "Tomorrowland Interplanetary Society" is under construction. The attraction is expected to open soon (latest will be this summer).



See in-game paths! Tomorrowland is still under development, and should be completed later this year. This is dependent on the amount of creators block that occurs.



The last addition I want to talk about is a new experience in the Winnie the Pooh themed mini-land.



Rabbit's Garden Spin is a family friendly attraction that is really our version of the tea cups. This is also the start of a potential expansion. I know there are lots of stories I am interested in seeing in Fantasyland, so I am 90% sure an expansion is going to happen.

All in all, this project is only going to continue to grow and develop. Next week will make 3 years since I started this project. Sadly, the screenshots from back then are non-existent, except on my laptop. I am ready to keep working on this as soon as possible, and I hope you are all ready to see the new magic that is coming real soon!

Nice update, cody. :)  I like the green path in the Winnie the Pooh area. Along with the many trees, the rustic fence and flat ride, it definitely gives off a Hundred Acre Wood feel to the mini-land.

I agree with you! I have seen multiple videos of Tokyo Disneyland and how just simple path colors work with different areas. The goal of the Winnie the Pooh mini-land is to include different experiences that are also simple attractions that would be great for families.

Great update as always! Love the addition of Rabbit's Garden Spin, it adds to the mini-land very nicely. Was hoping to see a peek at Pandora, but I am sure it will be worth the wait!  :)
Rabbit's Garden Spin took me a little bit to figure out a theme for that particular flat ride. I then thought of Rabbit having different things around his garden and a few buckets are definitely needed to carry things in a garden, so why not.

As for Pandora, I am still hard at work with that area. The possibility of previews starting this week is likely. This will more than likely just include Songs of the Shaman. The goal is to be done with Pandora next month, but depending on various factors this could be pushed back to April or even May. Compared to a few months ago, Pandora has seen some progress, and I hope to get into it more and more.

Sometimes you need a little magic to get you through the day. Disney however, keeps making magic through the night.



I am hard at work on getting things "update ready." From floating mountains to new experiences, things will be even more magical this summer!

This looks great cody! Great castle and architecture. The lighting is glitching out in the bottom left corner, but I know it's can be hard to fix those sorts of things.

Thank you so much! The castle comes from an old building save file that I modified to not have the stage. As for the lighting on Main Street, the struggle is real. I will have to look into better lighting for Main Street (possibly the whole park) once I finish Pandora.

Excited to see the progress that has been made! I am doing the same as I have made progress and am getting ready for an update as well.
Thank you! Once I get some stuff done outside of the RCT3 world, I will try to post multiple updates in my projects. It has been a long time since I have done any formal updates.

Hello everyone and happy Friday! I have been watching the recent news on theme park reopenings due to recent events, and have taken a step to add more realism to this project and soon the others. Disneyland Park is expected to reopen on June 1, 2020.



To the Disney fans who come often, you will instantly notice a few differences with the main entrance. I am going to tell you how the entry procedure has changed.



Before going through the contactless security check and temperature screening, guests are informed/required to have proper mask protection. There is a mandatory temperature screening after the contactless security check that involves the pre-existing metal detectors. Should a guest need an extra screening, there are new procedures that the security team has been trained to perform, while maintaining proper safety standards.



The massive tents will house the temperature screenings and any potential questions regarding face covering standards. We have plenty of cast members and health officials on-hand to help any guests requesting assistance.



Once guests are properly screened, the magic can resume normally (with some extra caution of course). This summer we are bringing back Summer Nightastic. There will be extra magic in store for guests, such as movies on the castle and various events to help celebrate summer. During the adjustment process, Summer Nightastic will be limited while things go back to normal. Guests will be informed of any changes to the schedule should it be deemed necessary.



For almost 3 years, this has been the sign that has welcomed guests to the park. Recently, we changed some of the posters in the entryways to help reflect some of the highlights. There used to be more, but RCT3 kept making billboards difficult.













Some experiences are currently in-development, but will be opening this summer/fall.



Due to the guidelines, Mickey And The Magician will not be performing. Other shows that will be closed are Mickey's Philharmagic, My Friends Tigger and Pooh. The nighttime castle shows will proceed as normal, but will be heavily monitored by crowd control cast members to ensure everyone is socially distancing.



This is a sight that never gets old! Main Street will be the first area that sees some new procedures as well. Social distancing guidelines will be followed for all lines at the merchandise and food/beverage locations. To the best of our ability, Main Street will have two way traffic to help not only keep a steady flow of guests, but to follow the requirements.



Yep, still not over this! I am excited to see the Walt Disney World Cinderella Castle when the refurbishment is complete. This was done to celebrate 3 years of magic, and there will be more later this year!



A land that is still a work in progress is Tomorrowland. There are in-game paths and grassy areas still common in this land that will be filled soon.



There's a great big beautiful tomorrow shining at the end of every day! That song is true everyday and we will continue to live in a world of progress.



A not-so-hidden Mickey.



One thing I feel is a really cool design element is the location of Space Mountain in this version of Tomorrowland. Normally, Space Mountain is off to the side or in a corner. In this version of Tomorrowland, Space Mountain is prominent in the land and sets up the area for Mission Space. It is something different yet functional.



Last photo from Tomorrowland, now it is time to explore another area of the park.



Adventureland is very different in this Disney park. We will have Pandora: The World Of Avatar, as well as some other experiences that are pending development. Pandora is in the process of adding details and structures to help further tell the stories of the experiences that will be offered to guests.



Do not be fooled by this overview, Pandora is actually huge! The goal for this land is to make it seem as distant as possible. We do not want you to see Cinderella Castle or Space Mountain at all. This land is very close to Main Street, but you will not see it.



This is one of the most thrilling elements of Flight Of Passage. Also in this image is the Satu'li Canteen that is currently in development. It will feature the same offerings as the version in Disney's Animal Kingdom, so those in Dubai can have their cheeseburger pods real soon!



Flight Of Passage will feature 2 launches and 3 inversions. This will be an attraction to attempt to get a fastpass for because it is a unique experience.



The Imagineers took great care to make sure Pandora cannot be seen throughout the park. Currently, there are a few areas that you can see Pandora (Agrabah for example), but much of these areas are going to see developments as well that will fix any issues with sight lines.



Adventureland in Dubai will be different, the stories that will be told are still in development and will be until the right mix is determined.



Cinderella Castle is a sight to see, and RCT3 has been very helpful to cure that craving for Disney magic.



Fantasyland is a classic area. Goals in the future are to further expand and tell more classic stories to bring more experiences to the park. Some will be returning and others will be brand new! I am not going to get into details yet because I want to work on the transitions and get everything to fit.



Honey Chicken at Kanga's Kitchen will be sold when the park reopens. I think there would be a riot if Kanga's Kitchen was not open.



To close this update, I wanted to say thank you all for the continued support. This is an ongoing project (like the others), and there have been a lot of months where this went silent. My goal is to pick things up this summer and do long updates if I get a lot done. I want longer updates with better quality instead of the updates being short and choppy. Other than that, see ya real soon!

The 'lands' are all looking very nice. :)  I think my favorite will be Adventureland. You're still teasing us with glimpses of Pandora. I like the fact that you're trying to keep the rest of the park out-of-sight, out-of-mind; striving for total immersion.

Adventureland is tricky, but the inclusion of Pandora only adds to the aspect of an adventure. The teases are actually on purpose because it is so messy on the guest level along with buildings that are incomplete. I have a huge queue and story for Flight Of Passage that it will take a bit to get just right. Other than that, I am happy you like it and glad to hear from you!

Great update! Loving the progress on Pandora and can not wait to see the full reveal! Are you doing the Navi River Journey in your land as well or something else? Love the billboards at the entrance as well. A very small detail that adds realism to your park just like the real Magic Kingdom! I also love that you are paying attention to the sight lines for the immersion factor. This is a very important detail that sets the new generation of theme park lands above the rest.

Excellent comment, and plans for Pandora do feature a possible expansion pad for something unique. The area is already taking a whole different approach to the existing experiences in the Walt Disney World version, so it will be an original concept (for the most part). Sight lines for me is what really sets the scenes in a park. In a Disney park, the real world is shielded away, and this is part of the reason Disney is so much different than other theme park franchises. The hard part for Pandora is how close it is to Main Street, and keeping the Floating Mountains from being too much of a visual intrusion to other areas. Trees of various heights do help, so Pandora is taking a bit because I want to nail the "hidden" factor. Guests will see the floating mountains be revealed from a bridge that is the transition from Adventureland to Pandora. Darknight I wish you good luck on some of your areas in your Universal recreation (Diagon Alley  ::)).

As for a current update, I repainted Cinderella Castle to have a more pink appearance with some yellow (pretend gold) details to it. I am paying close attention to what is being done to the WDW version because it definitely looks different. The current amount of guests is in the 500-600 range, normally in the 3000s. Anything with a theater is closed, and will be until proper social distancing measures are worked into these areas. Projected reopening date for theater experiences will be next month.  :D

Excited to see how you manage to pull off that hidden immersion factor! Like you said that is going to be the same challenge for me when I build Diagon Alley! I will be looking closely at how you do it as I am going to need some inspiration when trying to replicate the same in my park. As far as the Social Distancing and Covid19, I appreciate your dedication to making the park feel as realistic as possible. With that said I will probably stay away from that as I kind of want to forget about it when playing RCT3!  ;D

A lot of trees for hidden immersion. For your Diagon Alley, you will want to get full/large trees behind some smaller trees or shrubs. Also take note of the heights of the buildings in your Diagon Alley because this will affect the London waterfront greatly, so forced perspective techniques of altering the heights as you progress higher will be a good method.

As for the health related changes, I used it as a creative point and a potential look at how might a Disney park be preparing. Yes, we had insight on Shanghai Disney's procedures, but I have been very interested in the US parks and their procedures. Today was the opening of the theme park reservation system for WDW, and it was a long process for some and short for others. It took about an hour of waiting for the screen to load and once it did, the process was kind of quick. My RCT3 parks do have this process, but it has been streamlined. Also closing the theater experiences has reduced the amount of guests greatly in my RCT3 parks, definitely a realistic change that I did not think would produce few guests.

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today is a special day, which is the third anniversary of the opening of this Disney destination. The future looks bright across the whole project and will continue to grow and change for many more years to come. The world is definitely a lot different, but the magic never stops at a Disney park. Happy third year anniversary Disneyland Resort Dubai!

(RCT3) Disneyland Park at Disneyland Resort Dubai: New Normal (7/7/20)
« Reply #447 on: July 07, 2020, 09:55 PM »
Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I am going to be sharing how Disneyland Park has resumed to normal operation as well as some changes that have taken place and some additions that are coming!



Disneyland Park has been a very busy place to be, and stage shows are being held with social distancing guidelines in place. The RCT3 world is not to keen to the health and safety measures of the real world, but we can pretend.  ::)



At the small gift shop, guests can purchase hand sanitizer and anything they may need during their visit. This is a popular stop, so if you can avoid going here during early hours it would be a good option.



Mickey And The Magician is resuming as normal, with social distancing guidelines. An interesting addition is the right side of the facade has been extended to carry on the theming. The goal is to hide Disney's Storybook Resort from Main Street as much as possible. I am very proud of how this turned out.



Main Street is always busy because it is the first thing guests experience before visiting the various lands in the park. Cinderella Castle saw more painting done to it. The spires are now a lighter blue with the walls of the upper portion being painted a bit pinker with gold (RCT3 yellow) accents.



The makeover is definitely different for this park, as Cinderella Castle since it was constructed for this park had the classic white walls. This makeover has changed just about everything from the ground up, and I am happy to see how good it has turned out. It does look like Sleeping Beauty Castle now, which is very interesting.



The skyline of Disneyland Park is one of my favorites, especially looking at Tomorrowland.



As for new additions, the transition from Fantasyland to Tomorrowland and vice versa is being constructed. What is left is to pour concrete behind the monoliths, which is a classic Tomorrowland look and takes inspiration from the original WDW Tomorrowland.



Lastly, I am happy to announce Stitch Encounter will be the next addition to Tomorrowland. I am planning on adding a quick service to this building, more than likely a form of Cosmic Rays. The goal is to get more guests in Tomorrowland to kind of spread them out across the park, and theaters are great for getting guests in the park and in various areas. Stitch Encounter is similar to the experiences that are seen in the international Disney parks.

I hope you all enjoyed this brief update, I got inspired from all of the posts on social media inside the Magic Kingdom today. It is good to see the parks starting to reopen because they are definitely an inspiration to us all.

Great update! Love the Castle Makeover and extending the façade of Mickey And The Magician was a nice touch as well! Looking forward to seeing more and I too was inspired by seeing real life photos from yesterday inside the Magic Kingdom. It has been too long! :)

I have been keeping close watch on the real world Disney parks reopening. I am overjoyed to see Disney pictures filling my social media and have paid close attention to what has changed. Some changes I feel would be great permanently such as the monorail barriers and cavalcades.

As for my RCT3 Disneyland, a lot of thought is being put into this project. I want to mix different experiences with what I know. The backstage with Mickey banners really contributed to the addition of Mickey And The Magician because it can be used as part of the story very easily. The facade is inspired by the Town Square Theater in the Magic Kingdom, just a little different. The facade looked great by itself, but I wanted to see if I could extend it to potentially hide Disney's Storybook Resort a little bit more, and you saw the results it turned out great!

The castle makeover has been a process of trial and error (not so much error). I wanted to bring a makeover to my park because it just turned 3. The original castle was the Disneyland Paris version of Sleeping Beauty Castle. The old screenshots have since been blocked with Tinypic disappearing, but I still have all screenshots just incase I get ambitious. Cinderella Castle already looked great, then the first version of the makeover looked pretty modest and pretty unnoticeable unless looking at it from different angles. The second version is a lot more vibrant and the spires I actually used to use the lighter blue on them, so I knew it would work but did not picture it working this well.

I know this is a long reply, but these are some of my thoughts and the origins of some of my recent decisions. I am glad to still be working on this massive project it definitely has been a fun one!

UPDATE: I have begun fixing the screenshots for this project. My goal is to get through a few pages per week, this will depend on a few different factors. Once all screenshots are fixed, I will move on to my other major projects.
