Title: Wonder World (Rocky River Rowboats)
Post by: shyguy on December 23, 2016, 03:15 PM
Mr. Wonder would probably not want me to show this, but I'm going to anyway. I just wanted you guys to know that the first theme park for the Walter Wonder World Resort is now under construction. Keep in mind that this pic is a very early work-in-progress.

This park was legendary in RCT3. The first building spells a lot of good for this rendition.
I don't recognize the objects, so  :up:

Will this park contain only four lands, or will the other lands be available as "DLC" to the ticket price?

Thanks everyone. With great trepidation, I once again re-imagine Wonder World. I hadn't really planned to do this at first, but well, you know...

This park was legendary in RCT3. The first building spells a lot of good for this rendition.

The long term plan is to have all 7 lands that were depicted in the original model. Right now, I can't make any promises, as in its present state, I can't build even the original 4 lands in Planet Coaster just yet. I'll have to wait to see what we get in future updates from Frontier. So this project will most likely take years. This will not be a carbon copy of the original Wonder World. It will be a new and improved version, with a mix of new and classic attractions from the original park. An on-site hotel is also in the plans. So I'm hoping I'll eventually be able to do everything I want to do. We'll see...

Couldn't be any more excited. Wonder World may have not been the projects I first came across back in the day, but it was one that inspired me to pursue this hobby and now career. You showed a young enthusiast's love for the fantasy worlds of theme parks to be something that was attainable and doable. I got lost for hours at a time wandering through the threads and actual park; studying and comparing to real world parks and learning so much about themed design, guest flow, area development, etc. You really opened up a pandora's box of inspiration for me with this project and the forums you've created and I can't wait to see where you take this. :up:

Thanks for such very nice sentiments. It's really nice to hear that my work inspired someone whose work and talent has far surpassed my own. Thank you. I hope this park will live up to your expectations.

The original Wonder World threads are long gone. But you can take a quick tour of my original park at this little blog I created...http://www.shyguysthemeparkworld.com. Be sure to view each entire article to see all the pics. It's very out-dated compared to what people are doing today with RCT3.

I later attempted to rebuild the park on a much larger scale with brand new custom scenery. I didn't get very far until Windows 7 made it impossible to continue. That thread is over in the RCT3 Archives, here...http://www.shyguysworld.com/Archive/index.php/topic,7752.0.html. Be prepared to spend several hours. ;)

This new (and hopefully, final) version will be very similar to that last version, but not quite so gigantic.(The Expo buildings were huge!)  And hopefully, I will actually finish the park this time, with tons of new areas and attractions.

^^I just followed that link to the 2nd WW because I don't think I ever saw the end of it while you were working on it (and yes, I skipped to the end because, lazy).  Good stuff, but makes me appreciate what Planet Coaster is giving us in terms of graphics, and really makes this new attempt that much more exciting.  Be prepared to keep revisiting your newest remake though because there's still so much we can't do, and I remain optimistic that those missing gaps will slowly fill in...

There's only so much I can do right now with the current state of PC. I'm putting a lot of faith in Frontier in hopes I will eventually be able to create all of the 7 lands of Wonder World.

Stop teasing them shyguy.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Ticket-Plaza.jpg)
Here it is. The entrance to Wonder World!

This is still very early in development, so this pic does not represent the finished look. There is still more landscaping and many more details to be added.
Title: Re: Wonder World (Sneak Peek)
Post by: shyguy on January 10, 2017, 01:59 PM
Now that Mr. Wonder has officially unveiled this project, here are some details...
As you may notice, the Expo 3000 Space Port is not quite as imposing as it was in earlier versions of the park. As much as I would have liked it to be more massive, from a design perspective, larger does not necessarily mean better. A huge Space Port created several problems, foremost was the large, empty areas around it. Making it smaller will give Expo 3000 a tighter feel. It will feel more like a land, as opposed to a series of pavilions separated by large empty spaces.

In earlier versions of the park, I tried to cram a huge ride inside the building. Well, it was never designed to hold a roller coaster. The original concept was a walk-through attraction of a futuristic space port. But as that was not possible in the very early days of RCT3, it became a (bad) roller coaster. It was later gutted and a new version was created, which was ten times better, but still suffered from the tight fit inside a building not designed for a coaster. In the failed attempt at Wonder World II, I made the Space Port gigantic, in preparation for a large coaster. But that created the problems I pointed out, with the building being too large.

So, for this version, the original concept is going to be implemented. A futuristic Space Port. If that sounds dull, don't worry. It will still be the launching site of a high speed attraction. But that attraction is going to be so huge, that it will "spill out" of the Space Port building, and take guests on a much different ride. And there are more plans for the inside of the Space Port building, but I'm not going to disclose those just yet, as they are still just ideas at this time...

I'm so glad Planet Coaster works better for large round structures than RCT3. Sure, it's a lot of flat sides put together at small angles, so it can't be "truly" round. But it looks so much better than the small curved walls on the grid put together in your original RCT3 Expo 3000  :P
Title: Re: Wonder World (Sneak Peek)
Post by: citytrader on January 10, 2017, 03:31 PM
I actually like the slightly smaller expo center. It is still pretty imposing, yet, as you mentioned, isn't totally overpowering.

The flowerbed is clever, and works beautifully. Are you thinking of recreating the war of the worlds attraction? That should be great!

Can't wait for more!

Not exactly. "Spill out" wasn't the best choice of words. It's more like, "leave and go elsewhere".

Wonder World II featured completely round walls, all cs made specifically for the Space Center. So it actually looked better than what can be done with PC. Unfortunately, I can't even open the park file in Windows 7 anymore, thus the cancellation of that project.

I'm rather disappointed with the flower bed. It all turns white as you move the camera away. I'm hoping Frontier fixes this problem. As for War of the Worlds, that has not been confirmed. The original attraction (from the model) was World of the Future, which featured slow-moving vehicles through futuristic scenes, similar to the old Horizons attraction at Epcot. That attraction is more likely to happen. War of the Worlds could still make it to this version, but in a completely different format.

Nope. Expo 3000 already has a monorail planned, which departs from the Transport Center. (Just like the old Wonder World). The Expo 3000 Space Port will still be the launching center of a roller coaster/dark ride/??.  ;)

Title: Re: Wonder World (Sneak Peek)
Post by: Nemmie on January 11, 2017, 04:15 AM
Is that the transport centre I can see poking in on the right of the picture?

I much prefer the Expo building in this version. The size is better. I also like how it's more modern looking but still has that 60s, 70s retro vibe. Is it going to have any more detail in this version or are you still going for the more austere look of the original?

One thing I love is that you've nailed it to such a degree that when I look at that picture, it looks like I'm looking at a classic picture I've seen many times over the last few years, but when you look, it isn't a picture from RCT3. It's like when Hollywood does a remake of a classic, but done well, with care and honouring the original. Love it.

Master of tease. I see Transport Center on the right too! A little hard to tell from the low angle but I think you've nailed the scale down for the entry plaza and Expo 3000. Im having trouble with my own projects getting the scale just right especially not being able to change the high perspective from a setting similar to a camera instead of a human. Its prominent enough that it dominates it surroundings and acts as a barrier to the park, but not so overbearing like Space Earth at Epcot.

The Space Port and Transport Center are being modeled after the Wonder World II versions. I expect there will be some added details not seen before, but the land will keep the simple, retro style of the original park. Although, as you pass under the Space Port and enter the land of Expo 3000, you will find a much different land than seen before. I never liked the layout of the original, especially with that huge, ugly bridge spanning the two main areas. So big changes are indeed planned.

Scale is still one of the biggest challenges. The Ticket Plaza is perfect, I think. As you enter beneath the Space Port, it gets a little tighter than I had hoped, but not terribly. The Transport Center is coming out a little over-sized again. I've down-sized it twice, and it's still is a little bigger than I wanted, but due to the minimum path size of 4 meters wide, I can't go any smaller. I do wish we had a smaller path width, as it would make interiors easier to build.

I think this will be the best (virtual) version of Wonder World yet! I'm glad you've scaled back the scale. Of course, as you said, it doesn't help that PC does everything it can to make sure you build bigger than necessary. I have to say that's my biggest gripe of the game so far. Regardless, this is already looking awesome and I can't wait to see more!

If you're worried about how large the transport center looks next to Expo 3000 building because from what I can see, if both are in the same view it may make Expo3000 appear small, just find a way to block sightlines. A row of trees and landscaping on either side of the walkways adjacent to the ticket booths in the plaza will help diminish visibility to the transport center and reduce it in size. Or a few trees butted against the transport center's sides itself so that it only peaks above the treeline in guests sightlines from the entry plaza.

That's amazing! I don't recognize any objects at all, haha! So eh... how did you do that 120 degree angle in the white walls?

I have always liked the clean look of Expo 3000, although it's starting to look a tad bit... outdated  :sweat:

I had a look at your models (in case anyone else wants to see them, click here (http://www.shyguysworld.com/index.php/topic,429.msg14860.html#msg14860)) and I'm wondering why you opted for only one row of windows at the top, while the model has two. I think two would look better.
Also, I see you haven't yet added the letters to the Expo building. Because I myself wondered how it could be done, I had a try at it in the spoiler.

Agreed. But I didn't want to change the two top iconic structures of Expo 3000. Again, these are early pics and I'm mostly concentrating on getting the basic layout of the land to make sure everything lines up correctly and fits. This will be very important later, as many of the attractions will intertwine with one another. New details and landscaping will possibly bring these more up to date. I'm still doing a lot of learning and experimenting.

I tried in Wonder World II, but it made the building way too tall. This version of the Transit Center will be very different from the model and much closer to the WWII version.

Also, I see you haven't yet added the letters to the Expo building. Because I myself wondered how it could be done, I had a try at it in the spoiler.
I had already discovered that piece and that's what I plan to do. Great minds think alike. ;) I'm still deciding whether to put it in the same spot as in the model, or move it down below the actual building, just above the main entrance gates.

That model thread hasn't aged well. The model pictures are great, but then there's all the excited spam over moving text and fonts, and then all the begging for it to be a real park is... a bit much. Would you ever consider moving all your old Wonder World pictures somewhere without all of that? I know there were some pictures of the model in your blog when you showed how things changed going to the original RCT3 model, but it seems like that series just stopped pretty abruptly after reading through all the posts.

As long as we are reminiscing, my personal favorite was always the seven seas boat ride. It amazed me how well you combined all that scenery into a small world type attraction. Fate's was great, but your real creativity showed with the boats.

The interior. This is the men's restrooms. Or is it the women's? The signs outside are confusing.

"It all started with a restroom" -Walter Wonder
That sounds obscene.

What?! No toilets or urinals?  I don't think the guests will want to pee in the sink.....ha ha ha! 
The toilets are across from the sinks, you silly person.

You're Rumbling Ridge was one of the closest things to Matterhorn at Disneyland I had seen so it really stuck with me.  Matterhorn is one of my most favorite attractions.  You had many others I loved, but Rumbling Ridge was my favorite.  :D
I'm very looking forward to building the new Rumbling Ridge Bobsleds, as I never did it justice in RCT3.

Seven Seas Boat Ride will probably not make it to this version. It was originally the Boat Ride to Storybook Village when the original model was built. That is the tentative plan for this Wonder World. Fate's House of Fun is planned, but the final design is still in the works, as is the type of ride that will be the Wizard's Castle. I have no idea what that will be, but it won't be spinning pumpkins. ;)

Quite wonderful! The detail in this is going to be insane. I already know it.
It is. I hope my computer doesn't explode. (I'm saving my money as I have a feeling I'll need a super computer if I want to build the whole park on one map. And I do.

Since a lot of people are reminiscing, I want to add that my favorite was always Catfish Cove.  On the plus side you already have most of the scenery pieces you need, but on the down side we're missing critical water rides.  I'm crossing my fingers that Frontier comes through on that.

Outstanding bathrooms.  Those are words I don't get to say very often in life.

Also for the size of Expo 3000 I understand! When I tried recreating it in Minecraft it really didn't work well, now we know why!

Can't wait to see where this goes. Hopefully there will be no shenanigans this time around!

I'm pretty much forced to use "path covers" over all paths, as creating the paths I want to is impossible with the current pathing system.

The "spongebob" ride was the Expo 3000 Space Port. Sadly, spongebob will not be returning to this attraction. :P It will be MUCH different.
And there is one new flat ride planned for the Expo 3000 area.

Shrieking shack? If you mean the Haunted Shack, yes, it is planned, but no details have been confirmed. And it may be some time before I show off the Plantation Restaurant, as it, along with many other things, are in a very early construction stage. I'm in the process of laying out the entire park and making sure everything will line up and fit correctly. So there won't be much to show for a while. Just little tidbits for now...

Like the Guest Relations building.

You won't find the stanchions in any of the menus. They were quite easy to make and came out looking much better than I had expected.

Yep. It's early construction of the World of the Future building (War of the Worlds in the RCT3 version).

Construction has also begun on the Waterfront Restaurant.

I really really like it, but I can't help but to think that it looks a bit clean? It's not your fault, the art style in PC is cleaner than the one in RCT3, but I still think the area could do with a few props here and there. Make it look a little more rustic, and less modern(especially the chimney area).

The building still looks great regardless, and am super excited to see more!

I agree 100%. But keep in mind this is early construction. Props and landscaping will be added later. And I expect as Frontier adds more objects and building materials, things could change drastically. But I do appreciate the helpful criticism. :)

Definitely an improvement over RCT3! That's a great way to make some shutters BTW.

May I ask how you chose the themes for the lands of Wonder World? For us it was quite logical to make an alpine village in RCT3 simply because we had alpine scenery, but toothsticks and cardboard don't really have a theme...

Looking wonderful. Loving the clean builds. Are you going to keep the rigidity of the original catfish cove or are the facades going to be more mish-mashed together and staggered a little more? Just curious.

Really enjoy the waterfront restaurant ant the jagged edges of the seating area. It contrasts well with Expo3000 in the background.

I really can't remember what my original motivation for creating each land was. I know I created Alpine Village because I really like that style of architecture. But if memory serves me right, there was no alpine scenery in vanilla RCT3. I made it. ;)

Looking wonderful. Loving the clean builds. Are you going to keep the rigidity of the original catfish cove or are the facades going to be more mish-mashed together and staggered a little more? Just curious.
Catfish Cove is going to follow the layout of the model fairly closely. I'll finally be able to make the main street on a 45 degree angle which will make it fit alongside Alpine Village much better. The town is built mostly alongside the water with much of it upon rustic docks. This is incredibly difficult to do in PC. Couple that with the fact that I'll be doing interiors makes it hard to create a mish-mash style. But it will be much less rigid than the RCT3 version.

Everything's looking great and it's so great to see Catfish Cove making it's return. I really like the new chimney. It gives the building more character, I think.
Thanks. The old chimney's position made little sense, as it was right behind a window. So moving it and making it more prominent was a needed change.

OK, I'll bite. What did you make the shutters out of?
The edge of the 2m Thick Wood Beam. Not perfect, but I'm hoping for some stand-alone shutters from Frontier for replacement in the future (or UGC, when that gets implemented). In fact, I expect to make a lot of changes in the future, as many objects I'm settling for now are placeholders until something better is available.

And as others have pointed out, these buildings are just SO iconic now. You show us little sneak-peaks and sometimes it's just the edge of the building poking into view, but we recognize them immediately. And when you stop to think about it, we're recognizing buildings that aren't even real, that none of us have ever seen in real life, that have never existed except for your wonderful models. And yet, we're all so familiar with them, it's like we're all recognizing something from fond childhood memories. And that is an amazing achievement.

Yes, this is definitely bringing back that giddy feeling I had when first seeing Wonder World materialize in the early days of RCT3. Planet Coaster is making it possible to imagine Wonder World as a real park...the game looks so good. And the dome is not War of the Worlds, but part of the World of the Future complex. WOTW was not part of the original plans and model, but I still have tentative plans of bringing back that attraction, either in Wonder World or perhaps another park...

that dome! Damn shy you naild it! great work!

So, I'm curious, are you laying out the entire footprint for Wonder World? Or just the Expo area? I guess I'm interested in your process. When I was working on DA, I would lay everything out on paper, paint the terrain for that bench, do the general terra forming, then create all the paths, then build section by section, sometimes structure by structure.

The lighting engine is so underutilized in this game, it frustrates me. The architecture is amazing, I hope that you can figure out a good way to get the night shots to turn out once you get that far. Or maybe by then the floodlights won't be the size of a person.

That looks great! Love those supports! Are they entirely made with the shapes?

So, I'm curious, are you laying out the entire footprint for Wonder World? Or just the Expo area? I guess I'm interested in your process. When I was working on DA, I would lay everything out on paper, paint the terrain for that bench, do the general terra forming, then create all the paths, then build section by section, sometimes structure by structure.
The supports are made from the shapes.

As for the process, I am laying out the entire park. I have roughly marked the borders for each land and am roughly placing the foundations for major attractions, etc. I have started building simple shapes for some of the buildings, to get the proper scale and to make sure things are going to line up properly. Especially Catfish Cove and Alpine Village, which are built facing each other on opposite sides of a river. So right now, there a construction "projects" going on all over the map. I don't know if I will be able to build the entire park on one map. The size is fine. Just don't know if the lag will kill my computer.

I am concentrating heavily on Expo 3000, including detailed interiors. So this bench will include a fully detailed Expo 3000. If lag gets bad, I'll make a 2nd bench, rip out all Expo 3000's interiors, and then fully detail another land or two. I'm just going to have to see how it goes.

I only wish PC gave you more control over the sun. Those massive atriums would look amazing if you could perfectly point the sun patterns. The lighting engine is so underutilized in this game, it frustrates me. The architecture is amazing, I hope that you can figure out a good way to get the night shots to turn out once you get that far. Or maybe by then the floodlights won't be the size of a person.
Lighting works a little oddly, so I'm not concentrating much on that yet. In fact, there are a lot of things I'm just putting on hold until we get another update or two before I can decide how I'm going to tackle some things.

BOATS! I need BOATS! :D
And a full-size carousel! And a shuttle loop coaster! And better path and terrain tools! And......

A new addition to this version of the park is Expo Station, the "City Hall" of Wonder World. Here, you'll find banking services & ATMs, information, reservation desks for dining and hotels, lockers, and more.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Construction/Reservation-Station.jpg)
The Reservation Station: The place to make your dining reservations throughout the park(s) and resort.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Construction/Expo-Station-Int.jpg)
You'll find plenty of ATMs here as well as the Internet Island, for those who need access to a computer. Above, large screens will show off various areas of the park.

More pics coming soon as construction continues...

Apparently, Mr. Wonder has several future parks on the drawing board. Water World is definitely one of them. (It all depends on what the future holds for Planet Coaster)

Whoa. These buildings are incredible. I love the interiors. Great use of Sci-Fi scenery.
Thanks, matt.

I admit they're way too shiny and the color is too light. And Mr. Wonder demanded them to be ripped out and replaced. :glare:

Seriously, I agree. It can be frustrating. Here's hoping they come out with a nice spooky theme (I believe a folder for same already exists) that includes nice pretzel or doombuggy type cars, and some nice dark walls. I loved those true black walls we had in RCT3.

Here's hoping!

I'm torn between both options. The vermilion (I think that's what I'm seeing?) floor has a more 1980s feel to it whereas the current one seems a lot more modernized, but they both have that beautiful reflection that gives everything this ultra-sleek feel that just ties in with the rest of Wonder World.

The fountain/support structure has been built for the Transport Center Atrium.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Construction/Atrium2.jpg)
I've never loved the way this has come out in any of the Wonder World versions. I make dozens of changes during construction and then finally give up and move on. That's where I'm at with this version.

(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Construction/Atrium-Rendering.jpg)
A rendering of the atrium sculptures shows some little decorations on the structure to give it a more whimsical and inviting look. Do you guys like this, or should I leave keep it without. Also, what sounds better...Wonder World Transport Center or Wonder World Transit Center? I can't decide. :-\
Title: Re: Wonder World (construction continues)
Post by: TMH on February 23, 2017, 03:20 PM
I prefer Wonder World Transport Center. Transport sounds more futuristic, like something you'd use to describe interstellar space travel. Also it can be abbreviated to Transpo Center by Annual Pass Holders.  ;)

I kind of like the stars. They suggest more kinetics, as if water molecules are falling down the sculpture.
Title: Re: Wonder World (construction continues)
Post by: citytrader on February 23, 2017, 03:22 PM
Your give up and move on is my "OMG, that's beautiful!" I think that turned out just fine.

Personally, I think the undecorated supports fit in more with the rest of the structure. The little stars might work better if they were around other areas of the building. So I guess, add them elsewhere, or leave the support clean. Totally my opinion.

I like the sound of Transport over Transit. The word Transit makes me think of smelly buses! ;D

I prefer it with the stars gives a more futuristic feel to it! And transport rather than transit and in the UK there is the "Ford Transit" van which all workmen seem to use and it makes me instantly think of one of those!  ;)

Well, as there is no consensus of opinion, I've made my own decision. It was called Transport Center in the past, so it will retain the name.

I've added the "molecules". I may remove them. Still undecided.

Post by: wabigbear on February 25, 2017, 03:11 PM
To give an honest opinion - the building itself is made up of sharp angles, so to me the curves in the supports look out of place.  I wonder but that a similar support structure made without curves, but using straight angles in a similar pattern, might work?

The 'stars' also don't look like stars to me...they look like snowflakes and I know that's not what you're going for!

I 'd stick with "Transportation".   Or maybe Wonder World Transfer Center?

I never called them stars. They look more like jacks. TMH called the molecules, which I like that idea. As for the curves...yes, that may be the problem. But I wanted a contrast to all the straight lines. As I said, I'm moving on. I may change the design later.

I agree that the curved support structure looks a bit out of place, but I think that's a good thing. It draws just enough attention to itself and because it's different, it makes the centerpiece more visually interesting. It's more "artsy" instead of being just a support.

Your interiors are incredible. Your builds in general are just so clean and carefully crafted. Really shows off the amount of work and attention that is going into it. As far as transport center's central feature, I know you're trying to stay true to the original designs, but maybe a new concept might fit in better. Maybe something directly inspired by transportation or travel? Maybe a feature that takes cues from each of the lands in the park. I mean you're forcing guests to travel around this central feature so making more of an artistic piece that provides guests with inspiration is better suited than something thats just architecturally pretty. Its a shame we can't do kinetic sculptures cause that would fit in perfectly.

Love it! Gorgeous skylight feature. I'm guessing that you are hoping for some more versatile glass ceiling pieces in the future, the arches feel a bit discordant with the rest of the architecture. Something a bit more squared off and triangular would likely feel a bit more natural in the space. And have you considered beams or trusses spanning that atrium roof, or at least poking through? It feels a bit thin without a visible structural element there.

The colors feel very balanced, not too blue and not too gray, and the red floor seems to work much better with a bit of light on it, as opposed to the really shiny floor you had problems with previously.

I'm wishing I could remember the old Transport Center mall to see what to expect when it's finished. And hopefully the April update adds some much needed diversity to the game pieces.

The iconic clean structures were fascinating back then and a source of inspiration for us all. I also really dig all the details on your interiors. That arcade for example is freaking gorgeous. It really shows what a great game PC is and what you can do with it. Especially looking forward to your reimaginiation of alpine village, which was my favourite set to use in rct3.

How adorable! Mr. Wonder was able to afford a pint-sized version of the Space Mountain load area!
I'll be sure to inform Mr. Wonder that you find his park adorable. ;)

I wonder what the rest of the Space Port looks like.  :)
Me too. We're still working on the designs...

Wait what!? How did I miss this iconic park. I remember wonder world back in the early rct3 days, glad you picked it up again for this reimagination in PC. The iconic clean structures were fascinating back then and a source of inspiration for us all. I also really dig all the details on your interiors. That arcade for example is freaking gorgeous. It really shows what a great game PC is and what you can do with it. Especially looking forward to your reimaginiation of alpine village, which was my favourite set to use in rct3. Keep this up man, really digging it so far!
Thanks, BataliaIndustries.

Gorgeous!!!!!!!
Thanks, Lux.

Thank you. Yes, the RCT3 version of the Space Port interior was pretty horrific.

I love the pixel-y borders, but the red seems rather jarring. Perhaps you could include some different colored lights to balance everything?
Still tweaking things. Although I'm not really bothered by the red lights.

Wait...Is that an arcade?!?!?! OMG!! That's crazy. I love it!  :love: :scared: :love: :drool:

Prizes will be typical arcade crap, depending on how many tickets you win playing the games. You know...rubber frogs, squirt guns, copies of RCTW.

Stunning.  I've been catching up and when I got to the arcade I thought "Well, he can't possibly do any better than this," and then you showed the Space Port...  Clearly I was wrong.
Thanks. I'm pretty happy with the Space Port loading station. It's fairly modest compared to some stations I've seen. But I had to squeeze it into a tight spot, making it small, but functional.

Sadly, it's true. My evil uncle has him under a very binding contract. It basically says, "Work for anyone else, especially Scooter, and you die." But that doesn't mean I won't be continuing to expand the park. I may even build a new one, if it makes enough money. May be awhile though.

But let's get this topic back on track.

(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Construction/Wonder-World-Sign-1.jpg)
The Wonder World sign has been put up. Do you like this version, with the letters lined up straight?


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Construction/Wonder-World-Sign-2.jpg)
Or this version, with the letters offset slightly?
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: Kinderly on March 14, 2017, 02:52 PM
I would personally go with the offset. Its more visually interesting, however the first sign fits more with the style of Expo 3000... Just some things to take into account.

I guess my vote is for option 2.
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: TMH on March 14, 2017, 03:33 PM
Why do you require our input? Where's Shyguy in this design decision? Very suspicious.

Anyway, I prefer 2 as well. It's more fun and helps establish the entrance as "speaking" for the entire park, not just Expo 3000.
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: Nemmie on March 14, 2017, 04:00 PM
I like them both. The 1st one is more in line with the area. I really like the 2nd one though as it takes away some of the starkness of the scene.

I've been absolutely no help whatsoever, so I'll go now.

Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: CoastersPaul on March 14, 2017, 05:52 PM
I do like the second style, but I'd have to agree that the first is closer to the rest of the area so far.

Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: Guy_With_A_Stick on March 14, 2017, 11:16 PM
If it were for the entire complex, definitely #2. But because it's in Expo 3000, I'd vote for Option 1
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: shyguy on March 15, 2017, 12:39 AM
You guys are not making this easy. :P
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: FlyingDutchman7 on March 15, 2017, 01:42 AM
Option 1: option 2 is too hard to read easily (as a park entrance title should).
I love how every picture has this future-as-thought-of-in-the-60s vibe around it: it's so clean, but without the Apple-bright white and without the gazillion lights you see in modern looks of the future (e.g. Tron). Sure, this makes Expo 3000 look old, but it has a lot of charm.
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: AemJaY on March 15, 2017, 02:51 AM
Option 1 cause it fits better with the rest of that section!
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: SPRidley on March 15, 2017, 03:52 AM
As other people said 1 fits more in the area but 2 looks super fun. Basically it depends of the feel you want to give to the entrance, apart of being an Expo type entrance.
Future and science can be fun, so maybe go with the offset!
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: shyguy on March 15, 2017, 10:23 AM
How about we put the letters on hydraulics, and have them shift positions throughout the day? ;)
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: JPAlmighT on March 15, 2017, 01:46 PM
Actually, and please don't take this the wrong way, I'd kind of like an option 3.  I don't feel like the lettering (maybe the size) is giving this park the prominence it deserves.  When little kids approach that building for the first time, their little jaws should drop.  You raised the bar with those interior pictures above, making this incarnation light years ahead of the RCT version, so now I'm kind of wanting to see that same style progression from the exterior shots as well.  [runs away and hides]
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: LostThought on March 15, 2017, 03:42 PM
What about varying the height of each letter to form a slight arc?
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)

Tried it. I didn't like it. But nice suggestion nonetheless.

Actually, and please don't take this the wrong way, I'd kind of like an option 3.  I don't feel like the lettering (maybe the size) is giving this park the prominence it deserves.
Well, if you look at the entrances to most theme parks, the name of the park is not displayed as huge and impressive. Maybe at the entrance of the parking lot, but not at the park entrance. For all the times I've visited Disneyland, I can't even remember seeing a sign at its entrance. Also, keeping the letters small makes the Space Port look even larger.

Thanks everyone for all the advice. I agree pretty much with what has been said. The 1st option fits the style, whereas the 2nd option has a more inviting feel, but is a bit of a contrast to the Expo-style. Gonna move on and think about it later. ;)

Meanwhile, the Sports Deck (the 3rd level of the Astro Arcade) is under construction. Mr. Wonder is a little upset that I have filled most of the Space Port building with a giant arcade. But he doesn't realize that the Space Port was never meant to be a ride, and you just can't fit an E-ticket attraction inside. You will still board the Space Port attraction (name still pending) from inside, but the main part of the ride will be located elsewhere. And that's not all that is going to be located inside the Space Port building...

Oh, it looks like a great deal...until you realize you have to sink all 4 balls to win a prize ticket. And you need a minimum of 10 prize tickets to exchange for a prize. And the prize for 10 tickets is worth about a nickel. Mr. Wonder knows exactly what he's doing. ;)

Thanks. I'm trying to make this park as realistic as possible...within reason. Too much detail and my computer will explode. Most backstage areas will be left to the imagination...like employee break rooms, etc. It will mostly depend on if I think it will be fun to build or not.

Wow you're really going all out with the details. You must have a super computer. Is the track to the right of that first picture "on show"?
Yes. The right track is on ride. That's why the theming kind of "fades in" at that junction. The house lights are on dim for this shot. Normally, the house lights will be off during operation so most riders won't even noticethe back stage stuff. Theming isn't complete yet, which is why the end of the corridor looks "empty" near the purple lights. One thing I don't like about PC's lighting is the way the lights spill over through walls. Those purple lights are from the Arcade.

In fact, that might be my one little gripe with the area. With the dark walls, floors, and ceilings, it's a bit monochromatic!  :D  I guess the gaudiness of the arcade games offsets that.

Somebody hasn't been paying attention. RCTW is the 1st (crappiest) prize.




Obviously, you never played PAW :D.  Given the very small user base of PCs back in its day, it was way more of a disappointment per capita than anything since.  And besides, both crappy prizes you've mentioned are Atari products, so the failure of 'RCTW should not surprise anybody.  Even way back when Atari consoles were all there was for video games, most folks still found it more fun for 2 people to throw a ball of some sort back and forth between themselves for no practical purpose. :D

Whereas I'm not totally in love with the interior, it'll have to do for now. I'm hoping to go back to areas I'm not totally happy with and rework them as more assets are released for the game.

Shyguy, God of interiors. That arcade is so great eand the little services and facilities that youre incorporating are really adding to the realism and wonder of the game. Where do you find the motivation!? The queue line for the coaster is a little stark and repetitive, almost like a themed six flags queue. Maybe add panels to break up the space a little or a ceiling feature maybe? Similar to how Tokyo Disney's Pooh Hunny Hunt queue is.
Title: Re: Wonder World (Space Port construction)
Post by: TMH on March 30, 2017, 06:25 PM
It's a nice psychological trick how you shaped the queue. Guests should feel like the line moves quicker the deeper in they get.

Unless I'm looking at it wrong, and the zag's get longer the longer you zig. Hm. Maybe that makes more sense with the no entry signs... In which case, how delightfully excruciating of Mr. Wonder.

You are correct. Pretty crafty of old Mr. Wonder...

This is technically the overflow queue (or pre-queue?). It's what I like to refer to as the line to get into line. It's before you actually enter the Space Port building. This part of the queue begins the slow immersive process and it isn't until you get inside the actual Space Port that you become completely immersed in the Space Port environment. And there's still quite a ways to the launch station from here.

Cruel...just cruel - lol there are psychological tricks designers play when designing the queue...but mr wonder just straight up went for cattle pens. LOL no subtlety there.

Love the look of space port though - is that the only part of the queue or is there a more guided part like Space Mountain once you finally get IN the mountain. This is almost like Star Tours, but even star tours was kind enough to vary the scenes with ships and stuff.

Oh Mr Wonder...you cheap snake.

You don't have to have any experience with the game to appreciate the IMMENSE detail you're putting into every nook and cranny. I can't really say anything that hasn't already been said. If ToursDepartinDaily is still around, Mr. Wonder should invite them to do some HDR photography once the park is officially open.  ;)

Thanks. Expo 3000 is a futuristic Exposition, with some sci-fi elements. Even though it's a 60's style retro look into the future, featuring stark, sleek design, I would still hope that people would crave some warm and cozy places. In the world of Expo 3000, the Sunrise Cafe offers up a homestyle slice of the past to its guests.

Thanks. At first I thought it was too big, but I think the scale has turned out just right. The Expo Space Port plaza ended up just a tad too small, but good enough. Scale is very difficult to get right when you're first starting out with this game. And yes, Mr. Wonder will very likely do a tour of the Transport Center.

LoL. It really is an astonishing sight isn't it? I am loving the fact that this is going so well and the dredded Lag monster hasn't hit this park to! It would be amazing to be able to have a Wonder World park in the same map!

You're right. I distinctively remember Plokoon being shot down while trying to take aerial photos of Wonder World 2. :P

Holy cow how did I miss this thread. The details In this Recreation are ridiculous. You go over and Beyond what everyone else does and multiply that by 10. I mean you how much hours per day to spend on this working on it weighing things out. Especially all these abnormal shapes it truly is inspiring. I remember when I first joined the Atari forums back in 2005 and seeing your Park and how simple it was. But to me that was crazy so just seeing this and it's updated form is breathtaking.
Thanks Plokoon. But aren't you dead?

Mr. Wonder takes a nighttime visit to the Transport Center in Expo 3000 at Wonder World. Although it is still under construction, with no outdoor lighting yet, there is still much to see. Too bad the visit it interrupted by an uninvited guest.

There are probably more pieces used in building the Transport Center then there are in an average full-size Planet Coaster park. ;)

I had no idea the stars (yes, they are now definitely stars) flashed until I started making that video. The sign I used automatically does that, but as I work with the game paused, I literally didn't know they flashed until I set the game to night, took it off pause, and started recording. I didn't really want them to flash, but I guess I'll get used to it...until I replace them later. ;)

Post by: shyguy on April 21, 2017, 11:22 AM
For the original Wonder Shows, I used a software product called Xtranormal. It was relatively cheap. You paid a few dollars for each character, scenery set, or voice pack. Unfortunately, they went out of business. And anyone who had bought the product lost all functionality as you had to be connected via internet to the site for the software to work.

Recently, a new company took over the business called Nawmal. The greedy SOB's want $2000 a year for their product. (There's a version for school use that's a lot cheaper, but is very limited) I downloaded a trial version, and found they had removed the high quality voices with crappy ones.

I searched and found a company that provides text to speech software (NaturalReader) that had most of the voices that had originally been offered by Xtramormal. You can use it online for free, but it's very buggy. So I splurged and bought it for $70. That only gets you 2 voices though. You can purchase additional voices, but they want $40 each. So I don't expect to be adding more voices any time soon.

And devs wonder why users hate DRMs.  I used to be a gamedev and my boss always swore he'd unlock everything should we ever go bust, which he also swore would never happen.  Well, as far as I can tell, he lied both times.  We did in fact go bust, and he didn't unlock anything.  I quit some months before the apocalypse so can't be blamed for either failing, of course :)  But that hasn't stopped my name being cursed to this day in forums inhabited by our former customers, because I was the forum mod so was the public face of the company.


All of which is a roundabout way of saying how impressed I am that you've kept this place alive for so long.  I'm new to this place but not to the site admin game.  Even now, one of my hats is running my fire department's website and administering its training area.  The only way this is superior to running a game board open to the general internet population is that I get to sit at the table over coffee with my users, and should any feel like trolling, I can bash him or her upside the head one time, which all agree is better than losing a week's pay or more over some trivial argument :D

Thanks for the advice (and offer for help?) Although I have other options to get more voices. I've also used Sony Soundforge to change the pitch to create extra voices in the past.

Meanwhile...this will most likely be the first ride to open at Wonder World.

But I'm struggling with the name. The original attraction was called the Auto Raceway, very similar to Disney's Autopia. But this is different. And of course, they're not autos. I've come up with Astro Raceway, Expo 3000 Raceway, Wonder World Raceway, Astro Racers. I'm thinking that I may not even want "Raceway" in the title, as I may add a kiddie version of the Auto Raceway later, as a homage to the original attraction (and depending on what Frontier adds to the game). I think I'm leaning towards Astro Racers although I'm not sure is "Astro" even applies to this. An ideas or suggestions?

I liked how you integrated the raceway into the Transport Center! They really are pavilions organized by unified themes, unlike the model/RCT3 version which just grew organically.

While not quite as chaotic as Wonder's dream, the Sunrise Cafe is still quite busy. After breakfast, guests will get to explore the rest of the accessible areas of Expo 3000.

This is so exciting! Like I feel the excitement haha. Great work everything's looking amazing thus far. I can't get over the cleanliness of it all. And the way the sunlight beams through and into the interiors is just awesome, even without actually having transparent window pieces yet.

2nd to last picture:  LOVE the shadows on the shiny floor, feels so very authentic. 

Question:  Let's assume you already had all the custom scenery at your ready back in RCT3, did this take more or less time to build than the same space did in that game?

Question:  Let's assume you already had all the custom scenery at your ready back in RCT3, did this take more or less time to build than the same space did in that game?
This took a lot more time. But add the time it took to create the CS for the RCT3 version (and I'm talking about the WW2 version) it's probably around the same amount of time. The original version of the Transport Center from Wonder World (1) went pretty quickly as it was a fraction of the size and used very little new CS.

Btw, the 2nd part of the Transport Center Expansion is up at shyguy's Theme Park World, for those who want to compare this with the original version. http://www.shyguysthemeparkworld.com/

The Wonder World 2 version can be found here... http://www.shyguysworld.com/Archive/index.php/topic,7752.480.html

Title: Re: Wonder World (Transport Center Soft Opening)
Post by: Bullethead on April 29, 2017, 07:04 PM
Looks totally awesome, but I'm rather confused.  It's probably due to my lack of depth perception, but I find it hard to relate the inside pics to the outside.  The outside shows full-height, outward-sloping glass walls on the lower level and mostly solid, inward-sloping walls with a few holes in them on the upper level.  Beneath both is a kinda subterranean level.

Then I look at the inside views, and the full-glass walls appear to slope in instead of out.  This has been driving me nuts all along.  So is this just me or am I missing something?

NOTE:  It's OK to say it's just me.  Being able to recognize where my mental conceptual processes have it all wrong and then compensating for that is what allows me to drive 30-ton firetrucks down subdivision streets without hitting any kids or cars parked on the side of the road :D

Your confusion most likely stems from the fact that I'm only showing the exterior view of the entrance atrium where the fountain is. Actually, the outward AND inward walls both comprise the second level, as seen from the inside in the picture titled, "The Transport Center Atrium". What you are calling the "subterranean level," is actually ground level, seen in the picture titled, "The ground floor entrance to the Transport Center."

The concourse, which is where the Sunrise Cafe and Emporium are, is beyond the entrance atrium. So those are different walls in that section. The entire Transport Center is massive, but seems smaller viewed from the front entrance. There's actually a lot more to the concourse still under construction that I haven't shown yet.  I haven't shown any aerials of the building either, because they'd give away parts that I'm not ready to show. ;)

What a great Achievement for Wonder World. My congratulations Mr. Wonder :up: Isn't 60s architecture the most futuristic architecture style? Amazing to see that you bring the flair of World Expo 1962 back to Amercia!

"The Waterfront"

(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Construction/Waterfront-area.jpg)
The third "pavilion" in Expo 3000 is the Waterfront. The area is roughly the center of Wonder World, or hub, from where most of the other lands will branch off. This will also be part of the main parade route for the park.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Construction/Waterfront-Dining-Area.jpg)
The centerpiece of this area is the Waterfront Restaurant. This high capacity eatery will be the largest in Wonder World, serving lunch and dinner, cafeteria style.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Construction/Waterfront-terrace-dining.jpg)

It IS a concrete floor. And it's a pool, not a pond. A "cement pond", as Jed Clampett from the Beverly Hillbillies would say. Maybe the lack of reflection makes it look bad. Reflections seem to pop on and off depending on the camera position. But I managed to get a nice shot seen below.

The plural is caimans (I had to look it up myself).  But really, it depends on latitude which variety of crocodilian you have.  Caimans in South American, American Crocodiles in the Caribbean up to the south tip of Florida, and Alligators from there north.

Yep. The Speedway was nearing completion, and then Mr. Wonder decided he wanted a dark ride section. So nearly 400 ft of track was added inside the facility. Designs are still being worked on for what exactly you'll see inside. So unfortunately, the Speedway 3000 opening will be delayed.

OK, I'll bite. How did you accomplish those skylights?
It's just a pair of the glass canopy pieces, placed atop another pair rotated 90 degrees.

Here's an artist's rendering of Speedway 3000 as it travels through the Power Plant, which seems to have a suffered a cave-in in the lower depths. The new attraction could prove to be a shocking experience. ;)


Shame about the cave-in but I suppose that's to be expected in earthquake country.  You know, if you run a wire from the go-kart's spark coil to the driver's seat, you can create the amusing effect of making the driver jump.  When he jumps, he mashes the gas pedal.  As the kart accelerates, the driver is thrown back onto the wire and jumps again.  Repeat.  Endless fun ;)  I assume you already know this, however, and that your karts are already so equipped :D

Well, being from the World number 1 hydro production country, I cannot do anything but to to give like 667, at the hydro plant and general area.

Really, looking at the plaza and building are awe moments.

Thank you for making this place. There is nothing more for me to say. I'll just get by jaw back another day, when is done being on the floor.

Mmm, now im wondering how did you make that dome so perfectly shaped. Seems you used some flat panels (the rectangular arthshapes?) but once you get to the top I dont undertand why they dont start going through each other if thats the case.
Well, they do go through each other. But the dome is so large that it's probably not as noticeable then if it were a smaller structure.

Please don't give Mr. Wonder any ideas. We wouldn't want any more deaths at a Wonder park.

This is a family park. No alcoholic beverages. Although drunk people do tend to spend more money. Hmmm.....

Waterfront Restaurant Grand Opening!


The Waterfront Restaurant has officially opened. It, like the rest of Expo 3000, is only accessible to guests staying at Laffite's Landing. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner, cafeteria style. The fair is simple and affordable which will make this restaurant the perfect spot for families on a budget. It will be the largest restaurant in Wonder World. Burgers, Pizza, and Pasta are the main staples. But the menu could change in the future.

Enjoy a photo tour of the Waterfront Restaurant on opening day...

One of the many favorite things I have with your work is how you put as much attention into the ceiling as you do to what's at eye level.  Your parks are a full 360 experience.  Seeing those skylights from underneath is a prime example.

Thanks MARK. Yes, I'm trying to make this as realistic as possible, which can actually be harder than your typical over-the-top PC park. Making something simple and realistic look good is much harder than making something spectacular look good.

So you want the guests to be able to reach those sharp tools? :P  And see that ladder nearby. ;)  Okay, so I'll lower them. :mad:up:

(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Catfish%20Cove/Construction/Fishermans-Inn-const1.jpg)
The Fisherman's Inn is under construction at Catfish Cove.


And now for the bad news. Wonder World has had a couple set backs. First, a fire broke out over night in the kitchen of the Waterfront Restaurant last week. Most of the interior and parts of the restrooms were heavily damaged. The restaurant is now closed and crews are rebuilding the damaged sections. Three nights later, a water main broke under the hydroelectric dark ride section of the Speedway 3000. Due to massive water damage, the entire interior of the building will need to be gutted and completely rebuilt. This will delay the opening of Expo 3000's first ride by several months. So updates will be sparse for awhile as most of the construction crews will be moved over to these two areas and away from any new additions to the park. Why do my parks always have such problems? :(

It's a really weird feeling seeing recognizable CS parts from RCT3 make their way into this game, and we don't even have CS yet. You've definitely sold me on this version of Catfish Cove.

Why do my parks always have such problems? :(

Cause you want the insurance money.  ;)

There were real-life related, in fact I lost much more. Make sure you make multiple back-ups of your park files and save them to multiple locations!

Losing stuff always sucks, but if I lost something as expansive and detailed as this project I'd be pretty frustrated. If you're actually planning on recreating everything you lost, then you're far more dedicated than I am. I'd probably move on to a different project, maybe even a different game! :D

I didn't lose the whole park. Just about a month's work... Most of the Waterfront area, the hydroelectric building, a bunch of landscaping, and a couple things I hadn't yet shown. But this gives me a chance to make some things better, especially the hydroelectric plant interior, which I wasn't too excited about to begin with. I did think that park files were stored on Steam Cloud. I found out that they're not.
Luckily, I did have a backup copy on an exterior hard drive. Note to self...make back ups more than once a month. :facepalm:

Oh man! I really feel for you buddy.

It can be really demoralizing to loose a load of work like that but I know this won't deter you. We've seen many iterations of this park over the years and each one is better than the last. So we know you have the drive to keep going. And I know it will be even better. I can't wait to see what you come back with.

Such sad news to hear, but I am sure that the new outcome will be even better from what we have seen so far. Even though such a loss sometimes can be frustrating, it sometimes is for the better.

The new photo from Catfish Cove looks promising, I love what you did with the pathcovers, adds so much to the area instead of the regular paths. Can't wait for the first ride to pop up :)
Title: Re: Wonder World (Construction begins on Catfish Cove)
Post by: Nemmie on June 10, 2017, 05:57 AM
I've just opened the game and I got a Steam message before the game started. It said that my PC was not synced to my cloud files and would I like to upload/download files so they match. This isn't unusual as it's happened before. It's usually only a discrepancy of a couple of hours so you just hit the button and let the files sync and then the game fires up.
However, I spotted that it said that the files on the steam cloud and my machine were from different times on the 23rd of April. If I'd just synced it like I did other times, would that have wiped everything I'd done since then? I Thought it was really weird and maybe something similar could have happened with your game?

So I'd advise everyone to double check the dates if you get this message.

Shyguy, I lost my hard drive earlier this year and was surprised to find my entire park in the Steam cloud (my most recent save, even).  And I never did anything to put it there, just happened that way.  I wish I could think of something unique I might have did to recover it that could help here, but seems like when I installed Steam and the game on my new computer there was my park.  So sorry this happened.
Title: Re: Wonder World (Construction begins on Catfish Cove)
Post by: Nemmie on June 10, 2017, 06:13 AM

I've just been asking about this on a PC Discord I belong to.
If the problem is like what I mentioned above, apparently, your local files will be up to date even if the message says it isn't. So if you get this message, always upload your files to the cloud and down download them as they are usually out of date.


I hope this helps some people.

I also lost my hard drive. Before I replaced it, I loaded the game up on another computer, and there were no park files in the Steam cloud. Is this something that I need to configure? Or maybe I'm not understanding how to access the Steam Cloud.
Title: Re: Wonder World (Construction begins on Catfish Cove)
Post by: JPAlmighT on June 10, 2017, 10:47 AM
I could be wrong, but I don't think it is something you have to do, rather it saves in both places by default (which is why some of us have been getting the sync errors between cloud and hard drive as Nemmie mentioned.)  My thought is that if you DON'T want it saved to either PC or cloud, you have to tell it so.  Somebody please correct me if this is wrong, because I'm merely assuming.

You turned off your autosaves, didn't you?  I'm wondering now if those are the files that go right to the cloud.

What showed up in your saved parks when you re-installed PC?

No. I still had autosaves on.

Nothing. I had no parks at all.

It also had me create an avatar, as if it was the very first time I'd ever played the game.
Title: Re: Wonder World (Construction begins on Catfish Cove)
Post by: JPAlmighT on June 10, 2017, 12:03 PM
What that's saying to me now is that your newly installed game is not connected to your [correct] Steam account.  And I say that because it seems I had two accounts with Steam, probably something to do with the Beta.

Post by: Bullethead on June 11, 2017, 03:45 PM
And now for the bad news. Wonder World has had a couple set backs. First, a fire broke out over night in the kitchen of the Waterfront Restaurant last week. Most of the interior and parts of the restrooms were heavily damaged. The restaurant is now closed and crews are rebuilding the damaged sections. Three nights later, a water main broke under the hydroelectric dark ride section of the Speedway 3000. Due to massive water damage, the entire interior of the building will need to be gutted and completely rebuilt. This will delay the opening of Expo 3000's first ride by several months. So updates will be sparse for awhile as most of the construction crews will be moved over to these two areas and away from any new additions to the park. Why do my parks always have such problems? :(


I hope this is not an in-game way of glossing over real-world problems?  My own house flooded from a broken pipe (YAY, tap water, not creek water), which I worked into the story in my last park update, but it's been causing me great difficulties every since.  Hence, I have such things on my mind, which is why I had this concern.

Good day to our kind host, and to visitors of his work as well.

This is sad, to lose files, for I know the feeling, that is what brought me to my knees in RCT3, losing my last project and all custom content for it.

It very nice to see you roll up your sleeves and pick it back up. Thank you for building it, as I'm sure the second version will get more attention and love.

Hard learned lesson, I had the teaching too. This is how I learned about backup drives, I always back up my files now, all of them, always!

Today was the grand opening of Speedway 3000 during the Sneak Peek Weekend. I managed to get some early coverage of the event.

(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-1.jpg)
The entrance to Speedway 3000 is through the Transportation Center.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-2.jpg)
The Speedway 3000 queue. You can get a Priority Pass for $2.00 to bypass the stand-by line, which was well over a 2 hour wait for most of the day.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-3.jpg)
The second floor of the Transportation Center offers views of the Speedway queue, although you can't really see the ride itself.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-4.jpg)
You can see Wonder World's hydro-electric plant.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-5.jpg)
The monorail was busy all day, bringing guests to and from park. Access to the park is by monorail only, via Lafitte's Landing, as the Wonder World entrance and parking lot are not quite ready.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-6.jpg)
The queue is deceptively long, which you don't realize until you're on the bridge, crossing the track. You can also see some very unfinished construction of a future area of Expo 3000 beyond the hydro-electric plant.

That cattle pen is both so realistic and so horrifying at the same time. I'm sure the Priority Pass doesn't make the queue shorter. Hopefully Mr. Wonder will be able to fund great things with all this revenue.

Foliage can make or break a park, and deliberately choosing small trees was a great move. You've nailed the scope.

I terraformed the land first, adding hills and valleys. Then laid the track to follow the terrain as best I could. Then went back and fine-tuned everything with the terrain tools as well as having to re-lay several sections of the track multiple times. (This was before the ability to remove collision detection, so it was a bit tedious)

Amazing go karts track and surrounding of it.

The amount of details in the scenery is stunning and used with wise tought and great skills. The track is fading really well with terrain, which is also very nice.

This park is turning me on very high... as one of the most amazing around. Thank you for this amount of pictures to show the progress, it is very appreciated.

Nice usage of basic shapes, with a great imagination.

Thank you, thank you. Have a nice day, and to all visitors as well.

Thanks. I'm trying to use billboards sparingly, as I don't know what a lot will do to my performance. I know too many can kill an RCT3 park, and I expect going overboard in PC could do the same thing.

Here's the last update for the Speedway 3000. Last we left, we were heading into the hydro-electric plant.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-20.jpg)
Spirally down to the lower levels of the plant through the "water room".


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-21.jpg)
Watch out for those low-hanging cables. They don't look stable.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-22.jpg)
Looks like a cave-in has damaged those electric generator/laser thingies and knocked them out of alignment.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-23.jpg)
The riders don't seem terribly concerned.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-24.jpg)
A broken water pipe and electrified floors. That can't be good.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Transport%20Center/Speedway-25.jpg)
It looks like flooding and a downed cable are causing the problem.

These lucky guests made it out unscathed. Just watch out for that spark-spitting mechanism.

Great Stuff as always Shyguy!
Thank you.

I love how HUGE everything is, yet it never feels out of scale. So good, so very good
Expo 3000 was a good area to start with while learning how to scale correctly in PC, because of the size of each pavilion's main structure. I could get a little over-sized and it would still work. But I think I got everything just the size I wanted. :)

What a great way to plus the original ride. Wonder what else is in the Hydro Electric plant... Here's to the future!
Thanks. Well, you've seen pretty much everything inside the plant. Although that's only a fraction of what will be housed in the full structure, which will be the largest in Expo 3000.

Until Frontier begins adding the kind of rides I need, it's going to be more restaurants and shops. (And there are a LOT of restaurants and shops in Wonder World)

Although I like the indoor section more than the outside. The sunshades are a little bit repetitive.
Well, you're entitled to your opinion. ;)

The octagon roof! Ah, brings back memories from a time when that CS piece was one of the few ways to make stuff look off the grid in RCT3.
And it was a lot easier to make it, and import it into RCT3 than it was to recreate it in PC.

Thanks Paul. Well, Catfish Cove is a bit easier than Expo 3000 because it's much smaller and building it is not as repetitive. Although, building a town along the banks of a swampy river has it's challenges, especially in PC.

The General Store is a very rustic shop, selling simple items like candy, snacks, cooking utensils, and of course, theme park souvenirs like Catfish Cove t-shirts and other fish-themed merchandise.

Each shelf unit is a 2x4 wall billboard, turned on its side and sunk into the ground so only the top 2/3 show. The shelves themselves are in-game planks.

The images, I think.  Like the carnival game with the cow as the backdrop.  Come to think of it, I believe you were using them in the midway along Catfish Cove.  And actually, I might have those laying around on an old hard drive of mine as well...

(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Model%20Pics/Aerial-WW1.jpg)
Here is a picture of the original model. This version of Wonder World will follow pretty closely to the original plan, although the scale is bigger and the acreage will be about 30% larger. International Street will remain where it is in the model. As you can see, it was never fully developed. The space planned for the land will be a lot bigger than in the model, so it is going to be pretty huge. It will actually be the first area to open, and will be separate from Wonder World. There will be no admission charge and it will be mostly comprised of shops and restaurants. The land will be a sort of smorgasbord of different areas from around the world as well as different time periods. As it grows, it will eventually stretch all the way to Expo 3000 and will then become part of the park, and admission will be required to enter. Also, some major attractions are planned to be added so it will be much more than just a shopping plaza.

As far as the rest of Wonder World is concerned, the design will remain very close to what you see in the model with the exception of Expo 3000, which has been completely redesigned, but will still consist of mostly everything in the original plans. This will also impact Circus Center, whose layout is still being worked on. The left half of the land will probably be very close to the original, but the right half will most likely be quite different. The layouts of Alpine Village and Catfish Cove will remain virtually the same, but with a few extras added here and there. And the major attractions in Alpine Village will be getting some huge changes, but I can't say any more about that now.

The two lands at the back of the park, Cascade Canyon and Far Winds Valley, which never got past the planning stages, will certainly be coming to this version of Wonder World. But that's quite a ways away, so I have no details to share just yet.

So that's a general overview of what is coming in the future.

It's part of International Street. Look closely and you can see it in the model.

Thanks for the link to the model details.  Egad, that's a work of ART!  It needs to be in the Smithsonian, although I'm not sure which building.  Science and Industry, perhaps?  That's my favorite of them all.  And I'm serious about that.

Post by: Grrt on July 29, 2017, 09:44 AM
Your interior looks great! those Those seats are a perfect fit. Now if PC would add some more. The detailing is very convincing and not over the top. The kings table is a great idea and the stained glass compliments it well. I'd say you could hide a floodlight behind it to emulate the light that would be coming through it in reality which would make it really feel like a focal point. It's a bit dim there currently.

The yellow is unavoidable with those chandeliers, but if you hid some floods in the ceiling and floor colored them a dim red, you would offset that and get something closer to the orange/red candlelight you are probably going for without really adding extra light, which I know you probably want it to feel pretty dim in there. Red is generally a dim color.

Thanks for the tips. There actually are several lights hidden within the floors to "brighten" the room, as the candles don't shed enough light by themselves. I used a very dark yellow. I can try adding some red to see how it looks.

http://www.vendian.org/mncharity/dir3/blackbody/UnstableURLs/bbr_color.html

I always copy the hex codes from this website when I'm trying to emulate light that isn't pure white, particularly candlelight and things like that. All light sources typically plot somewhere on this chart, or very near it so it's a helpful tool when coloring light. Though in reality, our eyes tend to perceive things on this curve as being white after we adapt to them, so be careful going too red.

I'm still working on the same map. FPS is between 30-38. So it's pretty smooth, but that's with the game paused with no peeps. I haven't measured FPS with peeps in the park, but with 2000, it still seems okay. The file is taking longer and longer to load. I don't know if I'll be able to build it all on one map, but I'll keep going as long as I'm able. Sorry, no overviews. It's just too messy.

On that middle section, I love the decorative details near the top and the bay window down below, but I'm feeling like the open area in the middle needs something to keep up with all the detail of the two outer sections on either side... maybe another window?  But then, if you hadn't posted the source photo I don't think I would've noticed...

It needs some more details and as CoastersPaul said, those quoins are too large. It's still a WIP, and I appreciate the honest feedback. I'll work on it some more.

I think what is throwing me off most is the sign. There's a blue and gold fantasy sign that works pretty well, can be sunk into walls, and doesn't have glow, though, it might be too big for your structure. Another gripe I'm having is that the vertical beams just sort of end. On your source structure you can see that there are other beams (not sure of the specific name) that end them in a more sensible way.

Other than that, I think you've got a pretty solid structure. One thing that continues to amaze me about your structures is how you make them look like they were built out of your RCT3 CS. It brings a nice sort of nostalgia to the whole thing.

One of the things you do so well is to impart a sense of scale to everything without going incredibly over the top. Everything looks very well balanced.

Some builders have no sense of scale at all, and build these enormous structures that you would never actually see in real life or even in a theme park.

It can be a very fine line to walk, but you make it work beautifully. I hope I'm clear.

Your parks are always so theme park - y in a way not many others are able to achieve. I'm so fond of those sight lines for the entrance to the courtyard. I do think that some narrow flower beds against the buildings would help soften things up a bit (especially surrounding the bay window). Going from stone pavement to the stone base of the buildings is a little harsh.

Can't wait to see Wonder World's second ride inside the courtyard...

Yes, I agree. The area looks a little cold and stark without some planters. This being the first time I'm building International Street, I'm working strictly from the model. Whereas the other lands have had time to grow and mature through their many incarnations. I'll be adding more details and definitely more foliage as I can continue to tweak the design.

I'm planning on building ALL the lands from the model.

Oh, that one.  ;)

Okay Mr. Photographic Memory, I haven't decided whether or not it will be built. The scale might be too big for the area, and Mr. Wonder and I are currently looking into alternative ideas for that section. That area was originally planned as a Medieval faire, with game booths and such. But a game center is already going to be a part of Circus Center, so I'm not sure I want 2 such similar areas. But again, it's common for theme parks to have more than one gaming area, so we'll see...

/\LoL, I know what you mean. Maybe Shyguy could make a non functioning version of that ride made completely out of scenery. Kinda like the Parachute Drop in NoNameLandia from the Planet Brocoaster series.

It might be better to leave rides out of this new area though, because its technically outside of Wonder World and not attached to the main area (at least that how I am imagining it based on the model). So it might be better to treat it like, dare I say it in a Wonder thread, Downtown Disney. Where it is filled with shops and restaurants themed to different areas. Thats the vibe I always got when I had heard "International Street."

What do you think Shyguy?

That's exactly the plan for phase one of International Street. Let's just call it more like CityWalk, for Mr. Wonder's sake.;) It will be opening soon as just that, a place with shops and restaurants. But the future plan is to eventually gate it and connect it to Wonder World and add several rides and attractions.

It almost feels like you've exported your original CS sets from RCT3 to Planet Coaster and simply pushed the quality even further.

It's pale yellow. But because of the way lighting works in this game, the front faces of all the buildings in this section area in a perpetual shade. I might tone the color down a bit in that building to see if that helps. You're right, it looks more lime green than yellow in that screenshot.

I will say I also thought the same things as BlueSpirit...the Royal Confectioners building in the center seems small in that screenshot compared to the structure on the right (the name escapes me!), but you showed a screenshot before taken at peep level and they looked just fine in it... 

Not sure if it's just the angle or what, but I noticed the apparent size difference too, but then you're not done yet so they may blend together better when finished.
Title: Re: Wonder World (International Street construction)
Post by: shyguy on September 10, 2017, 10:19 AM
The Royal Confectioners was purposely made small so the castle would appear larger. It;s supposed to be a small cottage. It's that way in the model as well. The angle the shot was taken also exaggerates the scale difference.

I'm trying to keep the interiors as simple as possible but still looking good. As I said above, I may go back and change some things later when there are more assets available. Also, I want to build Wonder World in its entirety on one map. So I don't want to get ultra detailed. But I have a feeling I may eventually have to split up the park into separate maps, as there is SO much more to be built. We'll see.

And I continue to tinker with the look of the shop. This time, I've removed the wooden ceiling and replaced with stucco. I'm sure I'll be making little changes all over the place as time goes on.

These interiors are gorgeous. And your billboards look flawless. I have to ask you what wizardry do you use on them? All my artwork looks appalling in game. I often spend over half an hour trying to darken or adjust the image, and trying it in game, but 10 tries later, it's always low res, washed out and with completely altered colours.I'd love to know your magic.

The colour change is sadly unresolvable becuase of how the lighting in the game affecs the billboard instead of the textures. The thing is, Planet Coaster's billborads like to crush dark colours and black, so the only thing that will do darken the image is take a lot of quality from it.
I have to say, after using the save into jpeg sRGB (as an option just before saving, it seems it doesnt work if the document is originally sRGB only, so you need to tick that box during the save) I havent had many problems with colors apart of the crushing blacks.

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. Whenever I show (nearly) finished work here, the screenshots never look as good as they do in game. And it's then that I notice many flaws. You guys are a great "test" audience because you'll usually let me know if something doesn't look right. I know I'll be making minor adjustments to this scene, but glad to hear you guys like what I've done so far.

I use Photoshop and always save images in .jpg format, highest quality, and always tick ICC Profile:sRGB when saving. That said, it takes MANY tries to get it right. They still come out fairly low res, but you don't notice it from a distance. Dark colors come out horrible. And I've never been able to import a dark brown without it turning green or orange, so I can't create wooden textures at all.  If anyone has a wood grain texture that look good in-game, I'd pay big money for it! :P

And I'm so excited to see Alpine Village. I had a little chuckle when I saw the clock shop because again, it was instantly recognizable. I keep having to remind myself that, with all it's iconic buildings, this isn't a real park recreation. I'm really looking forward to Professor Fate's.

No enhancements. It's probably because it's a night shot with indoor lighting, which looks totally different when taken during the day.

(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/International%20Street/International-Street-Entrance.jpg)
Phase One of International Street is the Medieval Village, featuring old England and the beginnings of Germany. The area is free to enter and is comprised of shops and restaurants only. This will give a nice boost of income to the Wonder World resort, allowing work to begin on more ambitious lands and attractions. Once new rides and attractions come to International Street, it will become part of Wonder World and will require an admission ticket to enter.

I'll be posting a photo tour of Medieval Village throughout the week.

International Street Phase One: Medieval Village Tour

(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/International%20Street/England/King-George-Castle.jpg)
Our tour begins with King George's Castle.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/International%20Street/England/King%27s-Collection-Ext.jpg)
Inside, you'll find the King's Collection gift shop.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/International%20Street/England/King%27s-Collection-Int.jpg)
You can purchase "kingly" souvenirs like crowns, toy swords, collectables, and t-shirts. Also, you can have your family crest printed up and framed in a large selection of royal frames.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/International%20Street/England/Mead-Hall-Reservations-Entrance.jpg)
Also located inside the castle is Mead Hall. At the reservation desk, you can reserve a table and return here at the appointed time. Without reservations, you'll have to stand in line with the other peasants at the alternate entrance.

So in love. Excellent work shyguy. Your builds are so clean and well executed and those interiors are just downright perfect. Great cohesive theme while still keeping interest throughout. Your facades play well together and are scaled appropriately. Its so easy to oversize everything.

One note, the roof of the castle is very flat at the moment especially from the monorail. Maybe adding a few faux roof peaks behind the castle walls next to the main central tower will aid in breaking that "bigbox" look. Almost as if behind the fortress walls is the castle village with the peaks of roofs peeking just above the fortress walls. Just a thought.

Thanks. I appreciate the constructive criticism. There is a reason for the flatness of the castle walls, as it is actually a stadium which will open sometime in the future. So aesthetically, it doesn't look the best, especially from certain vantage points. But everything is still a work in progress, so I'll be working on ways to make it look better over time. I'll certainly give your idea some thought. There are buildings planned behind the castle, so that may solve the problem. I'll have to see how it all looks once it's finished.

Might I suggest adding either wall covers, tapestries, even a framed print or something on the rest room wall. It's just wood (ceilings) on wood (columns) on wood (walls). Some other material might help break the wall up a bit.

Always great to see peeps in the park. Love how everything is coming together. I have to say, though, your gift shop looks a little stark. I know it's hard for interiors, but it looks almost too open, as in lots of blank floor space. I'd assume you'd have as much room as you could for merchandise to make that mad $$$. Small quibble, though.

I think letting it be functional and trying to make it seem fancy to the guests somewhat justifies all the open floor space? Even still, I agree it's a bit too open - maybe it could use a few items in the middle of some of those empty spaces.

Ya. It looked better during the day when I built it. At night, it does look a bit dreary and plain. But then again, it's supposed to be something out of the medieval times, and I don't think the bathrooms were colorfully decorated. ;)

And here im wondering how you got so many people entering the restaurant to buy stuff for the screens (also the one with amelie as hostess is incredible)
Step One: Close all food vendors in the rest of the park. Step Two: Wait for the peeps to be so starved that they will flood the only existing restaurants. Step Three: Place the peeps strategically for each screenshot. I use all sorts of tricks when posting screenshots. For instance, the are photos taken at night with flood lights to make it look light out and the billboard signs Photoshopped using daytime images superimposed so the letters don't look black. ;)

Small quibble, though.
I think it's partially due to the fact that I try to make everything peep accessible and the minimum floor size is 4 meters wide, twice what it should be for store aisles. That, and the fact that I don't like making shop interiors, so they come out simpler with more floor space. But I will keep that in mind for the future and try to make the shops more intimate.

I love seeing peeps walking along a second floor balcony.  Do you actually have pathwork leading up to it or did you place them there manually to stage the photos?  (So far I've only tried the former, but the main paths are so wide it gets kind of clunky trying to hide the staircases)

Second floor wooden balconies are next to impossible to create and look good. There is a staircase inside the building, but because of the thick concrete foundation of elevated pathways, I opted not to use pathways on the upper deck. A temporary path was added and peeps plopped there for the screenshots only. Frontier gave us the option of removing curbs and railings from ground paths. I wish they'd go one step further and let us remove curbs and that clunky foundation from elevated paths too.

The Oktoberfest Restaurant is the sole attraction so far in what will later be the Germany section.

The Oktoberfest Restaurant has its "soft opening" as it still isn't completely finished. More decor needs to be added to the waiting room.

Dining guests will be entertained by a German band in the near future. For now, it's just dinner and piped in German music.

Thanks Jay. The fence is just the metal fence sunk a bit, and then a second one sunk to add the bottom rail.

Thanks  JP, although it depends on the lighting. The next screenshot shows the difference when it's in the shadows.

Just gonna say a big thanks to everyone for the nice comments. The little side street doesn't exist in the original model, or the RCT3 version, so it was fun to put this new little detail into Alpine Village. Although it was more of a necessity than an inspiration, as the game wouldn't allow me to put the restrooms under the second (working) floor of the Alpine Village Inn. So I had to put them over to the side, thus creating the side street. Now, it's one of my favorite spots in Alpine Village, as simple as it is.

LASERIUM is planned to open before the rest of the park, along with International Street, to start bringing in more revenue. Once Wonder World officially opens, the public will still be able to attend shows without needing to purchase a park ticket.

Yes. Expo 3000 is mainly comprised of big, simple buildings. The interiors are where all the cool details are. And, yes, there are some (hopefully) pretty spectacular things planned for the future.

Are you still in the same park file? Or are the two lands split up? There is always something nice about having everything in one file, it feels so much more satisfying to me.
So far, everything is in one park file. I haven't needed to split it up...yet.

Just kidding, of course.  Truly beautiful and not a single piece out of place as usual.  Gotta ask:  Making the horizontal lights is fairly simple if not time consuming, but those vertical posts along the stage are much smaller than the smallest round lighted sign.  What did you use for those (would those be called Tesla coils?)  It's something I've tried to do often but with much less success than this.

Thank you. I'm never quite sure how good (or bad) something is until I show it off here. Glad you guys like it so far. Although just wait until you see it with a show going on. :whistling:

Gotta ask:  Making the horizontal lights is fairly simple if not time consuming, but those vertical posts along the stage are much smaller than the smallest round lighted sign.  What did you use for those (would those be called Tesla coils?)  It's something I've tried to do often but with much less success than this.
I used the small oval lit sign. ;)

Thanks so much, AcesCalifornia. Your words inspire me to keep plugging away at this monster I created so many years ago. This is the last time I'm recreating this park, unless it ever becomes a real park someday... :whistling: :n00b:

I honestly don't know if I really have OCD, but the picture facing the seats gives me the good kind of chills.  Even when I copy and move multiple objects I don't seem to be able to get that kind of perfection.  Between that, and the lighting, this is definitely a "best of" shot.

Wonder World was the first park I created in PC. And now that the scenario editor allows for a park increase I may do some more work to the park since I filled it to capacity. Mine was based off of Beverly hills cop 3 and I even put the music from the movie in the park.

The biggest difference is that your Wonder World makes mine look like a toddler built it. You have so much detail and imaginative thought and designs. Your an exceptional PC builder and I look forward to everything you have in store for this park.

Through the magic of advanced holographic technology, any group can perform at the LASERIUM, from any time period. For the LASERIUM's inaugural show, I present Alphaville - The Forever Young Resurrection Concert.

(Mr. Wonder will not allow video shown of the concert. But still images are okay. So this is basically a fancy slideshow of the performance, just to give you an idea of what the show would be like. It's no masterpiece, but the music is good. So turn up the volume. Sit back. And take yourself back to the 80's, to a time when synthpop ruled the airways.)

Yes, Alphaville only had two big hits here in the states, but they continued to put out several more albums. I used many lesser known songs, mainly chosen for their dance beat so the peeps would get out on the dance floor and shake their stuff. :P

Thanks for all the great comments and support throughout Wonder World's 1st year of construction. Phase Two will begin in the new year. You can expect lots of changes, major additions, and the park's official opening to the general public. It should be exciting times for Wonder World's development. As Phase One comes to an end, I leave you with a pair of screenshots of the new LASERIUM.

Yes. They're not perfect and this is actually one time that I think the scale is too small. But they'll have to do. Now Frontier just needs to make some animatronic muskrats. ;)


Phase Two begins

Well, the new year brings the beginning of the second phase of Wonder World. In this phase, we'll see the existing lands begin to grow and change. We'll maybe see a fifth land finally emerge. And the park should be far enough along to finally officially open. So, to start off Phase Two, here's something I know all of you have been hoping for...

It's going to be a while until Expo 3000 Space Port is complete. So I'll just be showing sneak peeks until that day comes. Here's a shot of the queue on the way to your departure gate.

This is my first dark ride, so it's still a learning process for me. I'd say I'm about 60% done so far. The entrance, queue, and track layout are finished, and all the major sets are in place. I've got a lot of set dressing to do now. Lots of little details need to be added, plus some big ones as well. And then the soundtrack. And finally, a POV. ;)

I guess I could route through Mithos. What? Delayed!?!?!

Crummy spaceport!

Well, the Space Port (entrance) does have some similarities to Star Tours, but the ride is much different.

This is my first dark ride, so it's still a learning process for me.

I'm not even a little bit worried; you always raise the bar with everything you attempt.

And also, you meant first dark ride in Planet Coaster, right?  Because your WW rides were among the first I think that showed me what RCT3 was capable of in that genre and got me into that game in the first place.

Yes. I've had to make many changes. What many times looks great at first, doesn't work at all when viewing from the ride cam.

I'm not even a little bit worried; you always raise the bar with everything you attempt.
Thanks. I don't know about raising the bar, but so far, I'm fairly pleased with how it's coming out.

And also, you meant first dark ride in Planet Coaster, right?  Because your WW rides were among the first I think that showed me what RCT3 was capable of in that genre and got me into that game in the first place.
What, those old crappy rides? :P  Seriously, it's almost embarrassing to watch my old POVs compared to what is being done today with both RCT3 and PC. Time has not been kind to my old parks.

AHHH! I want to see more of that ride!! I remember the first time I watched the original version of the Space Port ride, I had the same feeling as I watched that little teaser. I am so excited for this project! Everytime I come into this thread I get more and more excited for this.

One thing came to mind. If the station is not located inside the actual Space Port and over by the Go Kart track, where does this scene take place? Makes me even more excited to see this project progress (since I don't want you to actually tell us where it is outright).

I can't wait for the actual video of this attraction!

A Brief History of Wonder World's Signature Attraction: Expo 3000 Space Port

The Expo 3000 Space Port has gone through many changes over it's lifetime. Let's go way back before there were any theme park sims and it was just a model of a small, fictitious theme park called Wonder World.

(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Model%20Pics/Old-Model-1.jpg)
Originally, the attraction was called the Expo 2000 Space Center. It was a walk-through attraction and there was no ride. In this never-before-seen composite photo, the original building was much smaller and occupied space in the center of Expo 2000.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Model%20Pics/Old-Model-2.jpg)
Later, the building was torn out and a 30% larger version was built in a new location. The Waterfront Restaurant took the place of the original building. This made room for future additions, like the Transportation Center.


(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-wIovXBIe3Aw/VT_gKQducZI/AAAAAAAAAaA/HGzaBOJMUUI/s1600/Original-Space-Port.jpg)
When RCT3 was released, Wonder World could now be created on the computer. This was the first version of the attraction. Expo 2000 was renamed Expo 3000 and the Expo 2000 Space Center became the Expo 3000 Space Port, featuring a roller coaster instead of a walkthrough. The coaster was pretty bad, as it mainly just went around in circles, following the perimeter of the building.


(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9T05uBkUMIE/VT_l5QGkVRI/AAAAAAAAAak/gPM3n6xgkfU/s1600/New-Space-Port.jpg)
The introduction of custom scenery lead to a much better version of the main building. The ride itself was completely removed and a brand new attraction was built with a better coaster and several major dark ride scenes added. But it still suffered due to the fact that the building was never meant to house a roller coaster, and cramming a ride of this caliber inside resulted in a very cramped attraction and some unrealistic track configurations.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Expo%203000/Floral-W.jpg)
Next, the never competed Wonder World 2 began construction. To solve the problem of the cramped spaces, the Expo 3000 Space Port building was doubled in size. Unfortunately, the ride itself was never built. Also, the huge size of the building created other problems, as it was too big for the land, and created large, empty areas around its perimeter. The whole project was eventually shelved.


Which leads us to today. With Planet Coaster, Wonder World can finally be realized in a much more detailed and realistic fashion. The new version of the Space Port is the pinnacle of the attraction's long and bumpy history. It's still not perfect, though. I decided to scale down the Space Port building to its original size. Expo 3000 doesn't feel as empty now, with very little wasted space as was the problem with the last version. I decided to keep the original idea of the Space Port building and have it just that. It is a futuristic space port where guests board the attraction. But then, the ride vehicles leave the building and you are transported to the launch site, quite a distance away. This works well, with the ride doubling as a kind of People Mover type ride. The problem is that once the main events of the attraction are over, there is a long ride back to the Space Port. I tacked on an extra "ending" to the ride, which helps. But it's kind of an anti climax. Still, this is still the best version I've created so far, and I'm pretty happy with it.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Space%20Port/Space-Port-Sneak-Peek-1.jpg)
The Expo 3000 Sneak Peek event was held last weekend. Apart from the massive crowds that showed up, it was quite a success. This pic was taken early, before the crowds arrived.


(http://www.shyguysworld.com/my%20pics/Planet%20Coaster/WWW/Wonder%20World/Expo%203000/Space%20Port/Space-Port-Sneak-Peek-2.jpg)
Later in the evening, it got pretty crazy. Mr. Wonder should have limited the amount of tickets sold for the event. Instead, he got greedy and put no cap on the event.

What a treat that was...  truly loved how the peoplemover aspect was as interesting and entertaining as the coaster part, this was a full dark ride before you even got to the launch.  I loved the interaction with the other Expo3000 attractions.  And nice job adding some story at the end to fill up that trek back to the station.   I was pleasantly surprised at how much of the scenery from the adventure pack you were able to incorporate (and how well it worked), glad you waited for that pack to finish this. 

I could say more, but I think the comment above mine summarizes my thoughts nicely.   :2thumbup:

SG, this is one of the best rides I have seen to date in this game. its very difficult to 'tell a story' with some of the limited scenery we have in this game, but you nailed it. The voice over helps a lot. I have used that in the past on a couple RCT projects, but haven't in PC yet...and I should.


Love the mixed ride types, part People Mover, part Space Mt., Part dark ride. Great combo.


The specifics were also ingenious. The Chief Beef ad, then seeing him being collected by the aliens....the portal was a great idea and executed perfectly...and I especially like the x-ray screens and the idea of the rat hanging on the back.


This is a well thought out ride and tells a great story.

Thanks everyone so much for your awesome comments. I was really sweating bullets after I posted this, as I have built this up so much and was honestly not sure if the ride would live up to all the hype. I've been working on it for so long and after a while, it's hard to tell whether or not it is any good until you get feedback from the community. I'm happy you guys like it and I feel very satisfied that the hard work I put into it paid off. I'm also relieved to be finally finished with what I'm sure is the most complex attraction at Wonder World. The rest should be a walk in the park. ;)

Hmmm. Now, what's next? ::)

*Before watching video* I have been waiting for this day for a long time, this thread was started back in 2016 (December so it still counts  :D  LoL) and this was the NUMBER 1 POV I was waiting to see! Professor Fate is a very close second. I can't believe that day is finally here! I'm happy that comments like this help you keep going with this project. You really have something special here with Wonder World.


*After watching video* To quote Doug Walker's character "The Bum" "That was the greatest thing I have ever seen in my life!" That was awesome. I remember you saying that you were worried that the long trek over to where much of the ride took place was going to be long, it was but I enjoyed the chance to get immersed into the story. It gave opportunity to hype up the trip to Mythos. I especially loved the fact that you added the Chef Beef advertisement, pure gold!

When they landed on the unknown planet I was so intrigued at what you were planning on doing with that section, now that its able to be more developed. You have no idea how happy I am that you came up with something other then Spongebob characters! I know it was a fun thing but to me it always was a distraction. Those things you decided to go for I thought was pretty cool! Idk what those were but I thought everything turned out amazing in the end!


Also, was that Wanda Wonder who voiced the Space Port Navigation AI? I think that might be a cool easter egg if so.

If I had to be critical, which I don't, but if I had to be...   The only thing I would say is there are a few times when it is a long period of low action but I think you gave us enough to look at that it would not really be a major problem for most people.  It would not bother me.   

I know I am the kind of park enthusiast who can appreciate a little slower if it tells a story.  Its not for everyone but you know, some people need VR goggles to like a roller coaster and some think the roller coaster itself was fun already.   You can't please everyone.

Wow that ride is perfectly composed. I often use voice covers for my darkrides and not many people use that as well. So I am very happy to be able to watch such a ride. The voice fits perfectly to the whole setting and underlines and supports the storyline a lot. The whole ride has an interesting and well elaborated suspense curve. From the beginning to the end it´s like a great and completed experience. The atmosphere of departure, the wish to discover new worlds is perfectly created in the queue and station. I like the style of theming a lot as well as the interaction with the park area outside and inside, for example the gaming hall. The trip to the unknown planet is unique as well, the undiscovered creatures are nice. It´s a great experience to watch this ride all in all.

Man I really wish PC would take all the specularity off of everything.. Especially concrete, WHICH ISN'T THAT SHINY, PC DEVS. It really makes dark ride sections hard in this game. Definitely something RCT3 has over this game currently, and is weirdly something that, at least in theory, should be an added level of depth that gives PC the edge. Maybe there's a setting within NVIDIA control panel to force to get rid of it.. You would think that a game built around complex environments and rides would have an engine capable of dealing with that. ::) But I make these gripes all the time.

THAT BEING SAID. You did a phenomenal job wrestling with the problems inherent in PC and overcoming nearly all of them. I noticed a few close clearances, especially that last turn at the end, but nothing major. Other than the stupid specular reflections bleeding all over the materials, the only real gripe I found was as I said before, the lights in your main queue room, which look to be area lights, are showing light all over the ceiling, which would be impossible. It's just cause the light distribution is a uniform sphere throwing light equally in all directions including up, and you have half the sphere in the ceiling, and half down in the room, so at the plane that they're intersecting it's throwing light sideways onto the ceiling. And since it's the brightest thing, it kinda sticks out. You could just hide them in little chandelier disks.

(https://i.imgur.com/DmfF681.png)
/crudedrawing

In some of the starfield areas, you are illuminating a lot of the trackwork, I think realistically they'd aim the lights off the track if at all possible. It kinda takes away from the effect when you're supposed to be in space. Though that is also, a minor complaint as most people at parks aren't gonna be phased at all by seeing the trackwork. But future reference maybe. ;)

That tunnel sequence just before the starfield segment turned out beautifully though. And as many others have said, this feels like the attraction Tomorrowland should have. A cohesive attraction blending the best of the People Mover, and Space Mountain. The queue is fantastic and it captures your atmosphere perfectly. The blue colors work great, and you've added tons of interest and exposition in what is a very dark area, thanks in part to all the self illuminated details and lights dotted everywhere.

And I can't help but notice your facade for the ride is dark, you should really get on that. ;)

Yes, I agree. More and more, I'm putting "fake" lights on the ceilings and turning them off, and then putting the actual lighting under the floor. I think that makes the lighting look more realistic. The queue was one of the very first things I built, and I don't think I was using that trick yet. I'll have to go back and see how I did that and see if I can improve the look. ;)

In some of the starfield areas, you are illuminating a lot of the trackwork, I think realistically they'd aim the lights off the track if at all possible. It kinda takes away from the effect when you're supposed to be in space.
I didn't light any of the tracks on purpose. Any segments that are illuminated is caused by light bleeding from other sources. So there was little I could do. But you can see the tracks in the real Space Mountain too, so at least I'm in good company. Maybe we can expect light to act realistically (and sound, too) in Planet Coaster 2, once computers are powerful enough to handle that.

A happy accident. ;)

If you're using area lights you'll get a lot of bleeding cause they spew 360 degrees, and if there's light coming from the rest of the building unnaturally I guess that can't be helped. But if you use the spot fixtures or boxlights they generally have a pretty tight beam angle that you can rotate off of obstacles. Of course this becomes more work and requires more fixtures to hit everything you want and hide them. Though it's nice with tracked rides cause you have a very predictable line of sight so lights are a lot easier to hide.

Brilliant in every way. You can be proud of this already legendary ride.

I loved the way you built up the tension with the great queu and slow start of the ride. Really well done. The audio is really good as well. I also like the amount of details. It's not just details to make it look more intricate. All the details are functional in a way that they support the story and the vibe . Great job!

Wonder World is a fictional park I wish truly existed. And the scary thing is, I believe that it would be good enough to be successful in the real world, along side the likes of Disney, Universal, and others. The concept is inspired: Guests enter the spaceport into a futuristic city splitting off to other unique and imaginative lands with each their own number of fascinating attractions and experiences. Therein also, thoroughly considered vehicle, track, building, theming.. down to the very bushes and trees contributing to the park’s fascinating atmosphere. Every screen has been great and I look forward to the completed product. The only question is... which one of you am I talking to?  :wacko: :)

That restaurant looks terrific! Nice use of the Munster benches and especially the jewels for the stained glass. The patio is really cute.

I like the clapboard, but did you consider the wallpaper or wooden walls? Might looks nicer in a restaurant.

The staff break area is a nice touch, but I'm surprised Mr. Wonder allows employees to have breaks.

Yes, I can find Wonder World in its entirety on one map. The question is how long will I be able to keep it that way before lag gets too bad.

absolutely love this restaurant. Nice color scheme, very cozy.

Well, your partially right. While I am setting the stage for the next big attraction, I may not build it quite yet. Still waiting to see if we get any more goodies from Frontier that I could use.

I can't really explain how large the map is without showing you, and I'm not revealing that yet. As far as fps, I haven't checked that in a while. But on my brand new i7-8700k processor, it runs pretty smoothly. Unless I let too many peeps in. ;)

The Haunted Shack - circa RCT3

(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Br4CkdSjng4/WLIZbSBCe0I/AAAAAAAAA_s/b5bmDngeoa4Nj1GeAIIwxO2T0GM14pgwACPcB/s640/Shot1442.bmp)

Strange and spooky sounds have always emanated from within the walls of the old, abandoned shack. Locals tell tales of the ghosts from the nearby cemetery taking up residence inside. Only the bravest of guests dared step foot inside, in search of answers. Those who did, could never come up with any rational explanation for what they encountered within.

But then, late last winter, an intrepid ghost hunter traced the eerie sounds coming from somewhere inside the basement. With hammer and shovel in hand, he entered the previously boarded up basement and broke through the rotted out floorboards in search of an answer. And he found it.

Coming to Catfish Cove in Spring of 2018. The new and re-imagined Haunted Shack. It was scary enough for those brave enough to venture inside. Now, be prepared to face the terror below!

I like the facade, but something just doesn't say "haunted" to me. Maybe some vine overgrowth, or perhaps angle the windows at like five degrees or something, just so it looks "off" if you follow.

Disney Imagineers wanted to make the Haunted Mansion look "haunted" from the outside, and Walt insisted against that. So I'm taking Walt's side on this. ;)

It's been a while since the last update. I've been pretty busy with other things. Plus there's a lot I'm just not ready to show yet. But here's a little update to let you know I'm still plugging away on this.

The Crawfish Island Melon Stand.

Post by: wowmanrct on April 14, 2018, 01:21 PM
So I have a funny melon story. Was at a client dinner (in southern CA which was quite foreign to a number of the people there) and most of the others had a bit to drink...and our sales AE was also a bit flighty on top of that. We walk out and she looks up an yells..."hey look, a melon tree"....wait for it...the tree had several semi-deflated balloons stuck in it. Needless to say several of us couldn't stop mocking her and laughing for a good hour. She really had no clue.

Wow, this has really come along since I last looked!  I had about 10 pages to catch up on.  Can't begin to say how amazing this all is.

Could you, at some point, show an aerial view of the whole park so far, just so I can get an idea of how all the lands are arranged?  I haven't been here very long so never saw the RCT3 version.
Title: Re: Wonder World (Haunted Shack)
Post by: shyguy on April 18, 2018, 06:12 PM
Thanks, Bullethead. I'll post some aerial shots soon, but I don't want to just yet, as it's such a WIP. The lands are all very unfinished and spread out all over the place and don't even connect to each other yet. Plus, there are some things I don't want to reveal yet.

Post by: JPAlmighT on April 19, 2018, 02:22 AM
That's a great shot, thanks for making that pic click-able!

Here's a question:  The RCT3 WW had a lot of terrain elevation variation with it.  Is that something you'll be doing in this version as well?   (It's been awhile, but for some reason I'm remembering Catfish Cove being lower than everything else.  Or maybe that's just where it fell on the map.)
Title: Re: Wonder World (Haunted Shack)
Post by: shyguy on April 19, 2018, 10:07 AM
I think there was the illusion that Catfish Cove was lower because Alpine Village was created at a higher elevation. The same applies to this version. There's a slight elevation climb to get to the ground level of Alpine Village. And then several more elevation changes throughout the land. Catfish Cove and Expo 3000 are at the same elevation. Although Crawfish Island is lower in elevation.

What horrors await in the caves below?


The Haunted Shack was originally envisioned as a walk-through attraction, similar to Knott's Berry Farm's old haunted shack. But at the last minute, I decided to add a ride to it. Since it wasn't planned, I didn't have a whole lot of room for the ride section. But I think it came out fairly well. It's no "E" ticket attraction, but it's a quick, fun, and creepy ride, similar to a Fantasyland dark ride at Disneyland. I'll have the POV up shortly.

Well, that's definitely a feather in your cap.  I've been banned from several forums but never the whole universe :)

But seriously, you can contest this.  Using snippets is totally covered as "fair use" under copyright law, provided you give credit where credit is due.  You can, in fact, sue the asshole for infringing on your right to fair use.

Well, perhaps it was more than a snippet, but the ridiculous thing about it was that I recorded it from an album whose entirety was posted on Youtube by the aforementioned author. So anyone can listen to it on youtube without purchasing it. But I use a portion of it as background for a ride, and that's not allowed. 8|

Well, Mr. Wonder is a bit less creepy than Disney's Head, so it could be worse ;)

Anyway, that was a wonderfully creepy tour.  I quite enjoyed the whole presentation.  I thought I recognized several famous paintings in the latter part of the queue, though.  Surprised you didn't get blocked for them, too :D.

I always had issues with using JW music in my Indiana Jones park back in my RTC3 days. I always had to make sure it was like in 15-20 sec increments and intertwined with other music...or totally overlayed with the track and other sounds effects
to get them to squeeze through.

and BTW - love the queue and the ride. The entering of the small shack and going underground is a great idea.

^Thanks guys. Glad you liked it. As I said, it was more or less an afterthought to add the ride-through, so I didn't spend too much time on it. But I think it came out as a fun, little ride. Here are some on-ride photos.

Anyway, amazing as always, everything is so elaborated in this park. We can see that you have a clear vision of Wonder World and it's fantastic !

I know it may sound weird, but I fell in love with the Melon stall you pasted in the previous page !

Well, let's find something to complain...
AH yes! At the entrance of The Haunted Shack you kept the basic doors of the game (I don't know if you know what I mean) without hiding them, and I think they are so futuristic that they don't fit in well... But I'm just nitpicking.

You mean the little gates right before you board the ride? Yes, they don't really fit, but I'm not sure how to hide them since they're animated and need to open and close. Frontier should add different versions like they did in RCT3.

YAY!! I've been wanting to see what a Planco version of the Haunted Shack would be like and you haven't disappointed me. It was creepy and has a bit of old fashioned darkride cheese thrown in for good measure. The lighting and soundtrack was great. The only thing I could say is that the queue could have done with a bit of fencing near the water, but it was a pretty much perfect addition to Wonder World. LOVED IT!!

Thanks, Nemmie. And I'll go back and look into the fencing issue. I think I kind of rushed this attraction near the end, as I was approaching burn-out. There are a few areas I still need to go back and fiddle with.

Yes. Everything is still on one bench. I've opened it to peeps many times, and with Fraps recording, it drops to around 18-20fps with around 1000-2000 peeps.

The Seven Seas ride was created solely for RCT3 because at the time, CS was not a thing and it would have been impossible to do an interior. But with the scenery that came with the game, I came up the idea of the Seven Seas Boat Ride. But with Planet Coaster, I can go back and create the ride that was originally designed to go there, and fits the Alpine Village theme so much better...the Storybook Village Boat Ride. So this is my plan, although it's not 100% set in stone. But fear not, the Seven Seas Boat Cruise is still on the drawing boards for this Wonder World version. It just won't be in Alpine Village. ;)

Whatever else you say about him, Mr. Wonder is a great slave-dirver multitasking manager.  He obviously doesn't need you for filming but his park still needs to be built.  While you also edit his videos of another park under his watchful eye.  Truly, all us multi-national park-builders should emulate his methods.

Very nice work, BTW.

This place looks like it grew over centuries rather than was built at 1 go recently.  Very nice.

On a side note, I fail to understand the logic behind Frontier's decisions as to which coasters allow kids and which don't.  For example, the Cascade water coaster doesn't allow kids, despite it being rather tame and the type of ride for Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.

Can't wait to see what you do with it. Just have patience, as there is a bit of learning curve and it takes a while to get the hang of it and learn all the various tricks. Don't hesitate to ask the community if you're struggling with anything or can't figure out how to do something.

Thank you everyone for the nice comments.

Would anyone be interested in collaborating with me in creating the interior of Storybook Land? My plan is to create scenes from the stories of the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and Mother Goose Rhymes. I suck at making custom characters. What I'd love to do is have someone help create the characters and some of the set pieces. Then I will create the interior sets and arrange them all inside the show building. I have a list of about 20 possible scenes. So if you would like to help create fairy tale scenes, or at least the characters for the scenes, let me know.

This looks awesome Shy. Alpine Village is definitely My favourite part of Wonder World. Though if you end up doing the Asian Fantasy themed area in PC that might take the cake. All the stuff in Alpine Village is awesome.

I felt the view from catfish cove looks a bit odd though. I think it could potentially be improved by having some terrain climbing partway up the wall in some parts? I think that wall going all the way down into the water looks a bit bare. Some terrain, rocks, and foliage i feel could really give it that finishing touch?

A great day to all who live on Planet Coaster!

Alpine village, Catfish Cove, why in the world of planet coaster this ring me urgently some memories, lots of memories from the roller coaster tycoon good ol' days? One would never know.

Nevertheless, this park, which is truly great a whole, is so much filled with tons of details the amount of imagination behind the conception is as stunning as the piece of art itself.

This park, and it's creator, is core reason to keep coming back to this forum for inspiration, as example of dedication.

Thank you so much for sharing your vision of this game, and your creation with a story(and historical factors) all linked for our enjoyment, and community.

I've wondered just how the sight lines for Wonder World would work out if ever fully realized as the initial model intended. In particular, the contrast between the two lands you've shown in the past update. And if there is any contingency or story that might back up or explain the visibility of one land from another. Something typically taboo in your... erm... competitors parks. :-X

Catfish being in a depression, and Alpine Village on a bit of a hill seems to lend some answers in my own head, though I'm curious if you have any continuity about this developed of your own.
Title: Re: Wonder World (Alpine Village construction)
Post by: shyguy on June 28, 2018, 08:50 PM
The only real reason for the visibility of the one land from the other is simply because of the limited space when I originally built the model. It just ended up with Alpine Village looking down upon Catfish Cove, with the Rocky River separating the two. So despite the real world geographical distance between the two realms, in Wonder World, they exist side by side.

So despite the real world geographical distance between the two realms, in Wonder World, they exist side by side.

From looking at the pic in question, it seems to me that the apparent sight-line issue here only exists at the altitude of the camera.  But I don't think the peeps can get into the upper stories of any building in either land, and at ground level you can't see one land from the other.  In Storybook land, the peeps can't see over the wall.  In Catfish Cove, they can't see through the solid phalanx of buildings.

Peeps would only be able to see both areas from a boat in the river between them, if there is such a thing.  But even then, the wouldn't see both lands at once as they'd be on opposite sides of the boat.  Thus, there'd be no mismatch of styles in the same viewpoint unless the peeps were looking down the length of the river from one end or the other.  And a few widely spaced trees on either bank would solve that, given the perspective, assuming that's considered a real issue.

See, I live near the Mississippi River in an area where it was an international boundary for a couple centuries:  Spanish/English on my side, French on the other.  Because of this, there are different architectural styles and even different spoken languages on opposite sides of the River.  Also, during all that time, the infrastructure and economies of both banks developed to stay on their own side, not cross the River.  Thus, even today, folks on both sides regard the others are aliens and crossing the River is fairly rare.

Astounding and inspiring, as usual. Again, these pics take me right back to really fond memories of seeing the RCT3 version all those years ago when SGW was young.
And as for help with the interiors, if I can help a little, I will, but I'm struggling to find pieces small enough to make construction vehicles, so I wouldn't know how to make fairytale characters.

I modeled this after the old Earth Station at Epcot Center, which used to be in the building beneath Spaceship Earth. But I think that was before your time. ;)


From Wikipedia
Earth Station
The original post show for Spaceship Earth was called Earth Station. It lasted from 1982 until 1994. It was a wide open exhibit space that included:

EPCOT Center Guest Relations
Seven large rear projector screens mounted on the walls of the exhibit space toward the ceiling that displayed visual previews of various EPCOT Center attractions.
WorldKey Information: Interactive kiosks that offered previews of various EPCOT Center attractions. Guests could also talk to a live cast member via two-way closed-circuit video, or make a restaurant reservation while in the park.

Yes, I've given up waiting, even though I'm sure they could do it fairly easily. Maybe they will in the future and I can swap the faux version for a working version. That is, if they don't have some oversize loading station making it impossible to fit the space.

Well, if they do it as a flat instead of a coaster/track ride, then the platform wouldn't be nearly as much of  an issue.  I can a boat ride as a modified bumper cars where the boats wander around somewhat randomly and then return to the dock.  Which would be the platform.

Anyway, that's a very attractive water hole :)

I like that PC is giving you a chance to build this park in a real-world-esque landscape, complete with mountains and vistas in all directions.  Catfish Cove is one of the best lands to showcase the beauty of nature that this game can provide, and you're taking advantage of that nicely.

It's supposed to be a Weeping Willow. There's several others near the Plantation Restaurant, which I showed quite a while ago, but no one seemed to notice them then.

I think I've always tended to create simple buildings and concentrate more on the flow and organization of each land. I do sometimes go back and a few extra details where needed. But in trying to create a realistic park, the money is spent on the attractions and not so much on the architecture. I once read a snippet about Walt Disney who rejected a spectacular design for something submitted by one of his artists because is was simply way over the top. Walt thought the design looked like the artist was constructing a monument to himself instead of creating a cohesive look for the land being designed.

My main goal is to create a unique atmosphere for each land, and not try to wow people with over-the-top designs. That, and trying to keep the FPS up.  ;)


Been gazing at that last photo, especially the bridge, wondering how much was in game pathwork and how much was you creating from scratch....

Very photogenic landscape and atmosphere!
The bridge was created by laying planks down, covering the in-game cobblestone path. In fact, I cover most of the in-game paths with other surfaces including flat roof pieces, billboards, etc. All the paths in Catfish Cove are covered with reddish colored blocks from the Adventure Set, giving it a kind of hard, dried mud pathway.

Post by: Bullethead on January 17, 2019, 06:03 PM
That bridge is fantastic!  Very realistic bracing there and the plank surface with heavy creosote is perfect ;).  It's like many of the bridges where I live.

And I really like the panorama with the Expo sticking up in the background.  I can imagine Mr. Wonder sitting high up in there gazing down at his serfs in Catfish Cove and cackling like Mr. Burns.  "Eexxxxcccellent!" :).

The rowboats are basically a children's ride, with the boats on an underwater track. A silent motor keeps them moving at constant speed. Riders can row with the oars and steer the rudder, but they're really just there to give riders the illusion that they are controlling the boat.

All these shots are interesting and beautiful, but the last one- doubly so. I especially like the river islands (called 'aits', I think). The rocks and plantings along the bank look great.

Quote: "Someone needs to tell Mr. Wonder that rowboats don't have rudders."

Well, now that you've posted it here, I'm sure he'll find out about it. ;)  So these rowboats are like the old Disneyland motorboat ride from yesteryear, where it didn't matter which way you turned the steering wheel or if you stepped on the gas pedal- they were just for show.

I like the chickens on the roof. But, what are they finding to eat up there? Locusts and other animatronic bugs?

Clever use of chickens!  :D

It looks really great! Love how you masked the change in elevation with the ride and wall. Question; How did you get the path so close to your vertical wall? I've tried similar, but always have a gap that is hard to fill. Is that a path cover? It looks like the regular path.

Well, they need the oars to fend off les cocodries.  This is a bayou, after all :).

Also, oar-propelled boats of this size, with a transom stern, are called "cutters" and do in fact have rudders.  They're too big and heavy to be steered well with just oars, and are also so big and heavy that they need oars at all the seats.  So the rudder is actually realistic and you might want to consider adding a 2nd pair of oars.  Of course, doing that would require everybody to pull together like galley slaves but hey, it would provide an educational experience for the kids ;).

It's a regular path I used, but it's elevated. It connects to the ground near the base of the buildings. It was a huge pain to accomplish. ;)

... So these rowboats are like the old Disneyland motorboat ride from yesteryear, where it didn't matter which way you turned the steering wheel or if you stepped on the gas pedal- they were just for show.
Exactly. But I didn't want to compare them to those. I'd have to use the "D" word, and you know how much Mr. Wonder would hate that.

Wow, it really has been a minute since I was here last. I came to see if an old thread was still active and found the site had been rearranged. When I logged in old habits kicked in and I clicked the "Show new replies to your posts" link, was extremely happy to see that this thread had continued being updated! Especially that the last picture update was from my birthday.

I am so excited to see this progress! Catfish Cove is looking amazing, as well as Alpine Village. These two lands have got to be my two favorite lands of the entire park (with Cascade Canyon being a very close third). I am in awe at some of these pictures and some of them actually seem real and from a distance I was actually mistaken a couple of times!

I really can't wait to see the new Storybook ride. I'm also really intrigued at how you plan on tackling the Rumbling Ridge. Who am I kidding, I can't wait to see how you do any of the rides! LoL.

4 main rides left? The Storybook ride, Wizard's Castle, Rumbling Ridge and Professor Fate's House of Fun? I'm assuming the War of the Worlds ride is scrapped? To me it seems like the Space Port ride building takes its place. Regardless, I'm still excited to see how this progresses.

Oh, and thought I'd mention this, if I ever win the lottery or something I totally would give you a portion in order to build this park, even if its a small amount. I'd love to see this park IRL some day.

It was great stopping by, I hope to not remain a stranger for much longer!

Sorry, but my creative juices just aren't flowing right now. I'm taking some time off from my Planet Coaster projects for a while.


Those shots are absolutely gorgeous  :o ! Hope you get flowing again soon!

No, there is no actual rowboat ride. It's just the rowboat props with the seated animatronics from the Studio Pack DLC.

I love the river! They remind me of the Efteling lake, which was so magical seeing all the boats navigating themselves.

Wow Shyguy! Wonder World looks absolutely gorgeous in Planet Coaster. I'm in love with those rowboats - they are so cute! Can't wait to see more :)
