We expect so much from you with each update and somehow you not only meet my expectations, you shatter them.
How many times over how many years have you done this to me now?

Ocean Cyclone is incredible.  The layout reminds me of Seaside Cyclone ;)

The lights on Ocean Cyclon are soo cool! It must have taken hours to complete and make them perfectly aligned to the track? I can't wait for the POVs of your rides, so let them come :)

More amazingness, I see.

Even though I'd thought of doing it, I don't think I'd ever have enough patience to do those lights around the coaster. And they look really, really beautiful. And the station is so well designed. The colour choice (again), is so nice and the simple yet elegant design just fits the mood of the area so perfectly. I love it.

Lattice? Really? Looks wonderful!

Yup!  Took forever to make.  Ha ha.

Something so simple yet never before seen (at least, to my knowledge).

I love it.

For thinner lattice work (or a trellis), you might want to try out the veranda pieces so long as you have something to cover the... back area because parts of it will stick out. It can be sort of awkward.

But anyway, enough of that. I can't believe I missed out on so many fantastic updates that would seem (at least for me, and I imagine most others) to take days or even up to a week to work on yet these were dished out at such a fast pace and yet, it didn't feel at all like you should have spent more time on them before posting.

So many brilliant things to comment on here, the facade on Fire Mountain, that extra woodwork + lighting on the log flume to give it that extra "pier" feel (to compensate for the fact that it's not built around lush landscaping, you know, that's how most people make their log flumes attractive but since you're on a pier, you had to do it differently). And Ocean Cyclone is just... the epitome of a pier-style woodie with all aspects (just the right amount of theming, coloring, architecture, appropriate fencing, a believable layout, etc) covered.

You not only took something on board that hasn't been attempted on PC yet (again, to my knowledge...) but you've set the bar pretty high for anyone who wants to try their hands on something similar. :P

Thank you!  The lattice is seen from both sides so I had to do it this way.

Yeah...it took a LONG time.   8|

I hope it's worth it.   :D

Today I worked on the main entrance to the central pier and the street.  Still a work in progress.

Gorgeosity and bliss!  Wow, what a wonderful park!  So many great ideas to steal draw inspiration from!  I learn so much from your work, Fisherman.  Thanks.


BTW, I agree with the move of the woody to be parallel with the beach.  It reminds me of the 1st woody I ever rode, the Zephyr of Pontchartrain Beach long, long ago.

That entrance though.  :up:

I can't get tegidcam to work right for me.   :confused:  Oh well.

So I moved the Sun Flyer up the Central Pier...I like it better in the middle of things.

And I added Wave Runner and High Dive to the West Pier













Everything so far:



I'm kinda stalled until we see some of the new content for the upcoming update.

Usually pier parks are small. This one's going to be the size of a large amusement park. Looks like a fun place to visit.  :D

That entrance is spot on! That is perfect!!

The fact you already have half a dozen fantastic coasters and there's still so much space - this is going to be a Must-visit for any peep!
Fantastic.

I fracking love this park...it's combining everything you'd expect in a pier park without it looking cheap or trashy. This is what pier parks COULD be if owners didn't make them such lowball bottom-line attractions. Love the new coaster as well - very pier style out and back.

Keep it coming man, it's so nice to see you create again.

Thanks so much, guys!

Worked on the areas around The Ocean Cyclone.  Made a little Administration/Handicapped Accessible parking lot, lots of fences, and some nice concrete.   :love:

I love the parking lots. They add a great sense of realism to this park. I was trying to figure out what you used to make the fences around the handicapped lot. I was thinking, what the hack objects did he use to make those?
And then I realized they were the standard pre-generated fences. :facepalm:

Oh, and the park is nice too. ;)

Ha ha!  Yup...just the railings on the paths.

So I made all the parking spots handicapped accessible...makes more sense, I think.  The employees can park across the street with the peeps.    :yes:

Better?

Those parking lots  :love:
You know what? This is one of the only parks I would love to have in a scenery mode with some challenges to play it with a little story about it. It reminds me to the pier stage from RCT1.
I really hope Frontier makes custom scenarios soon.

Hey Derek,

This is just too much awesome to handle. I can't believe just how charming you've made this whole thing. No one else that I've seen in the whole Planet Coaster community has attempted anything like this. And that's why SGW rocks. The people here are on another level.
Even though it isn't on this thread yet, I've seen the back of the sign with the sunglasses and it's so inspired and so quirky. I love this park so much.

And also, I've seen that you're having surgery this week, so as cheesy as it sounds, I want to send you love and support and I want you to know that we're thinking of you. Make a speedy recovery and come back soon. We're here for you buddy.

Malc <3

Wonderful work as always, Derek! Love the access parking lot. Very nice touch.

Also really like the simple west pier and central pier facade entrance pieces. They look great!

Hope everything goes fine this week. All the best, buddy. You know you'll be in our thoughts and prayers.

Thank you so much for the well wishes and kind words about my park so far.   :blush:  Y'all are the sweetest!

I'll post updates on surgery day to let you guys know how it went if I feel up to it.

So...since I don't know what rides we're getting yet, I've been working on other stuff.

Around the World in 80 Days:





Sally's by the Seashore (a souvenir shop) and some food and drink vendors:







Check out that sight line to the East Pier!



Everything so far:











Oh...and some backstage areas:





Across the street will be a parking garage which will hide the stairway from the biome entrance.  I also plan to make a whole street of old buildings, some of which have been converted into modern restaurants and cheesy tourist traps (Ripley's Believe it or Not, Ripley's Haunted Adventure, wax museums, etc.)  I'm sure I'll get a lot of buildings and facades from the workshop.

Back in RCT I never got the fascination with parking lots, but even before seeing this update I've kind of seen how what's outside the park really sets the stage for what the park is.  In this case the palm trees dividing the two lanes really gives a sense of the geography, if that makes sense.  Plus I think it will make for some pretty awesome POV's down the road.

However, I've never had a problem with employee areas.  Those have always been awesome to me, and that's the best I've seen  :P
