Hello everyone !
I've had the game for a while but haven't created much with it. I recently started a theme park with a Medieval/fantasy flair.
So far, I've only completed the entrance and 90% of the right-side Main street, but there's more to come !

Here are a few pics.










Hope you enjoy these ! Any comments or criticism is welcome.

PS: If anyone has a good idea for a name for this park, let me know !


UPDATE : Here's the name I'm choosing for the park : Legendary Realms - A Medieval-Fantasy voyage into forgotten lands...

That's some great building of the entry complex and very realistic half-timbered buildings in a charming arrangement.  I do have a nit to pick, however.  If you're going to skew the half-timbers so significantly, IMHO the walls should also be out of plumb as they're all interconnectec.  OTOH, if the walls are all vertical, then the half-timbers should be fairly true, too.

This has a great old world/medieval look to it. An excellent start. Looking forward to seeing this progress.

Thank you ShyGuy ! Coming from the mastermind behind WonderWorld, this means a lot ! I'm working hard on the next set of photos !

Thank you very much BulletHead !
You got me there  :-[ I hoped no one would notice that architectural mistep... It's really do to lazyness on my part. I actually did make some buildings with askew walls, but later on I didn't feel like going through all the trouble  :whistling:
I guess there no shortcuts possible now that I've been caught ! I'll go back to pushing those timber frames out of whack !

The skewing is actually pretty discreet on the old building I used it :



I'll try to make it mor noticeable on the newest buildings, but that'll probably mean I'll have to do a lot of filling the gaps...


Anyhow, Thanks again for your comments ! Stay tuned for more in the coming days !

For skewed (as in out-of-plumb) walls, you can't use gridded parts.  I'd recommend the "colourable" panels on the scenery tab instead.  However, some of the haunted house panels on the buildings menu might work, too.

I also tend to use the Temple set pieces for awkward shapes. It's looking great so far though.

Thanks both ! I started experimenting with both options and it works like a charm !


Here are a few new photos :

I added some railings to the ticket booths at the entrance



Here are the two new buildings placed on the left of the entrance square



The one on the left houses an info booth, while the left one is just a facade.



In other news, I'm toying around with the idea of calling this park : Legendary Realms.
The general idea would be to have this park divided in several realms, a Medieval market town for the entrance area, a countryside, Mythologic isles, a Dark/Shadow realm, and maybe a Nordic village.
If you have any suggestions for a park name or even ideas for lands that fit the med-fantasy theme, be sure to comment !

I'm currently working on a concept-map so I can give you a glimpse of what may come.

This is so charming and fun! I'm loving how this is shaping up!
I think like I live like I work like I love.....voluminous and disjointed. Get used to it.

I already find this to be beautiful and charming. I cannot wait for the storytelling you are going to do with the upcoming experiences.

I don't know how I missed this until now.
I love all the details on the buildings. There's some really nice shapes too. I can't wait to see how the park looks when the rides start to go in.

Thanks guys !

Here a small update :

The left portion of the entrance square is nearly done, a clocktower has been added (Can you guess which real-life theme park ride facade has inspired it ?)



I think the clock-tower works very well from outside the entrance, really draws you in




See y'all next time !

Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant.
I really love all the wonky angles.
May I make a suggestion? I think if you vary the plants in the planters at the front a little, different shapes, colours, heights, maybe a few flowers and small trees, it will bring it to life.
But it all looks amazing. I love it

Still loving the buildings! I can already feel the fantasy/magic pouring out into the entrance!

Hiya Everyone !

it's been a while since I last posted. I've been making slow progress for the pas few days now that I'm confined at home.

Here are some New pictures, the MainStreet is develloping with new shops and areas.














So, obviously some things are still being worked on, but I hope you've enjoyed what I've shown so far !

Until next time, be well !


great looking town square, half circle, whatever!!! :)

I love this 'old world' architecture. Very nice. :)

Thanks for the kind responses !

Here are few pictures of the work I got done today...

This side street left of the entrance plaza is finished !
Later on it will lead to a covered gallery running parallel to the main street, with entrances to the back of the shops and eateries similar to DisneyLand Paris.



I particularly like this little house.



Another view of that side street.




This shop facade is progressing as well. I'm thinking of calling it The King's Emporium, let me know if you guys think of something better !



It comes with window displays too !





That's all for today !
Until next time, be well !

More really nice screenshots. :)  "The King's Emporium" sounds good to me; plus you already have the crown near the entrance. ;)

Well damn!  The architectural views in this place are phenomenal.  Nothing is cookie-cutter and the details are EVERYWHERE :)

True !

Thanks a bunch !
I try my best to add details even though it's a pretty long process. In the end it really helps tell an over-arching story of the land through tiny individuals pieces of storytelling.
It makes the whole place feel "lived-in".


Hello everyone !
I hope you are all staying safe in the confine of your homes, and putting all your free time to good use, working on your hobbies, spending quality moments with loved ones... but also playing a good deal of Planet Coaster ! I know I do !


Here are the newest developments at Legendary realms !

A new shop facade has been built : The Red Boar Boutique
. It is really just another entrance to the same shop as the King's Emporium, but that's theme-park trickery for you.



Building on a sloped terrain is no easy task...





Now I feel I'm really getting into the groove of things, so I might redo some of the older buildings just to remake them up to the same standard of quality as the newer ones... We will see !

And now for some night and interior shots !



Building shop interiors is really not my favourite thing to do. But thanks to some really handy workshop and toolmaker's kit downloadables, I was able to ease some of that burden.





The interior of the shop(s) was thought of as a bazar of sorts, a treasure trove of unusal trinkets and amusing finds from all over the king's domain.



You can see all these "treasures" lining the tops of the walls. "In-universe" these shelves would feature objects and artifacts from all the diffrent realms (lands) that compose our theme-park.



Maybe these crates could sport inscriptions and writings of all the various and exotic destinations they have been shipped to/from.





And now for the final treat. I just love this shot.



Thanks for tuning in ! See you all next time.
Until then, be well.

The Red Boar Boutique is a fine example of the architecture that makes your park so enjoyable, TheWZRides. Loaded from bottom to top with old-world goodness. Sort of Alpine; sort of Bavarian.

looks great

The buildings are perfectly themed. So many details, great work. The interior is superb as well. Great lighting!
