Testing lights... These are "animated" (the lights just change color, making a proper texture animation would be hard since this is not a CFR).





The tower's lights use the same colors of the tower itself, same thing for the gondola.
The lights on the gondola change color faster than the one on the tower, so the lighting scheme looks more varied.

I could cover the whole tower "lattice" structure with lights, but for realism I prefer not to do that, since the tower lattice is used to go from the inside of the tower to the outside and vice versa, when climbing to the top for maintenance.

The lit version will be separated from the unlit one, so you'll be able to choose which version to use.

Whoa!!!!  That is amazing!!!

Hi, where can I find the whirpool download? I'm not founding this in cs depot
Thanks

Released the log flume and raft ride, not final, but it's usable.



I already thought about it, but it's a massive piece of ct to make, requiring a boatload of tracksection to be useful for that kind of rides.
I don't know how Markus Lomberg could make CTs with that number of sections, but with my method it would require ages.
Just to let you know... my log flume uses about 70 track sections. For a I-Box ct you would need about 3000 or so, basing on how many pieces ML's ct have.

Here, the whirpool is aviable when you build the ride.


Paths Update:



New paving style, plus matching queues for all my paths.

You can see the queue texture looks worse than the path one, depsite the resolution is actually exactly the same. It's because rct3 seems to manage queue's textures differently from path's ones. This issue is much less noticeable when zooming in.

These look great, francescoaster. New path/queue textures are always welcome; we don't have to resort to using path covers.

Thanks to JoeyWP post, I'm starting to make some reversers for my log flume CT. If I manage to do this, I will experiment an elevator lift for this and for the rapids ride.

Yes I do, but usually I don't release it. For now I made a station platform set (animated gates, floorless dropdown floor, etc), an egypt theme set and an aztech theme set.
