Title: Renee Feu Adventure Park - Port of Call
Post by: wowmanrct on August 23, 2018, 07:38 AM
Well - here is my next adventure in PlanCo.
I'm going to try and use a park I created in RCT3 as the starting point. While I will switch a few things out...I will try and follow that old park layout as much as I can.

I'm also trying to decide if I will just some construction pictures, but mostly completed work (like I did with my Star Wars park), or if I will show work as is progresses...maybe even do some build videos???

Anyway - here is how my mind works.
I first draw a real rough draft of the whole park layout to start working with.
(https://imageshack.com/a/img924/151/QVvBh1.jpg)


Here is it color coded - lands are inspired from the Indiana Jones movie locals

Purple - entry plaza and Port of Call. A central market place with shops and places to eat and get supplies for your adventure to exotic locals around the world. There may also be a few small flat rides here and a train station and boat station.

Light Green - Jungles of the World. Lush jungles with mystery and danger lurking around every bend. There will be a coaster and raft ride here as well a flat or two.

Light Purple - Venice. a quaint village area with waterways and shops  - not sure what this will be yet, but maybe a shopping district with a flat ride.

Pink - Area 51. The government has alien and mystery stuff here that you never know can happen if released- dark ride and maybe a coaster

Gray - Temple of Doom - Race through the caverns on a wild mine train coaster. This area may also have mystery caverns deep below.

Green - Germany. Castles and villages are the setting for Indy's latest adventures

Dark blue/green - not for sure yet, but maybe Hong Kong where there will be a night club and a car ride

yellow - Egypt - Beware of the mystery of the pyramids. Desert setting with a tracked ride and a coaster or two.

Tan - Africa. an extension with Egypt and a place where jungles and animals lurk in the shadows. There will be a water ride and other flats in this area.

The dark blue lines are general placement of the rivers that will hols a boat transport ride. black blocks are planned stations
The dark purple line is a train transport that also has black station locations.

No fair starting with a plan! :D

Anyway, I look forward to seeing this.  If it's only half as good as SWL, it'll still be awesome ;).  Are you taking suggestions for the "not sure yet" area?  There are a few places not already on your list.  Mediterranean islands (with our without U-boat bases), the Holy Land, the Andes, the Colorado Plateau (although Area 51 is already in the US SW), or even the big city university where Prof. Jones taught class.

Post by: wowmanrct on August 23, 2018, 06:14 PM
Yes - I have a few open areas in case what I have planned grow a bit bigger than I think I need, but also some other areas.
I have the University (Harvard, even though I know thats not what the university was...I need to look it up) penciled in the upper corner along with Hong Kong. I also have The West penciled in for the ? area...like the beginning of the the third movie. I also have Tibet on an island, but I didn't mention that in my list. I'm also going to go through all my Young Indy TV show disks and see if maybe I can pull something ut of there. Lots of WWI stuff on that show. Africa/Paris/and maybe even a war battle zone land??? Hmmmm.

That is about how my plans look when I actually draw them out. Mind-mapping is a great strategy for anything. It provides a safety net that helps fight creators block. I cannot wait because the story-lining is looking great as well!

OK - Opinion time. I was working on this park...and I'm thinking of switching it up from a licensed entity (Indiana Jones) to more of a Planco branded park...say Renee Feu' Adventure Park. It will have most of the same planned ideas in the map, but with some slight twists where needed. It will have the same look and feel, only PlanCo based. What do you think?
 
Title: Re: Indiana Jones Adventure Park - A new start
Post by: JB on August 26, 2018, 07:53 PM
Well, seems to me that you would have a lot more success (and fun) making an Indy-ish park rather than attempting to stay true to the movies (or Disney rides). All theme park sims are lacking in some way or other; best to take advantage of what's available rather than trying to force it to fit a narrow (Indiana Jones) theme. That's my 2 cents anyway.

I say "Trust your instincts, Luke.  Turn off your targeting computer."  No disrespect to your awesome Star Wars park, or anybody else's parks inspired by or even recreated from real life stuff.  Those are quite hard to do well, as I'm finding out myself with Dixie Landin'.  However, I honestly prefer to see folks let their own imaginations flow unconstrained by trying to conform to something pre-existing.  This is mostly because I utterly lack imagination myself so regard exhibitions of imagination by other folks as magic shows ;).  But also, I get more ideas to steal that way :D.

So, I decided to switch away from Indy and make this park a female branded adventure park. It will still have all the same plans and very Indy influenced as far as rides, locations and sets, only branded with Renee instead. I will change the name of this thread to reflect this.

Post by: wowmanrct on September 03, 2018, 01:46 PM
As guests pass through security and cross the bridge to adventure, they pass across the entry plaza. A place to meet friends and gather before you enter the park. This are is speckled with little scenery and garden areas that set the stage for the adventures to come. There are also planted berms around the edges to hind the parts of the park that will bend around the plaza area.

Here is the area from above.

I have been working on a house remodel project, so haven't had much PC time recently. I worked on the whole park layout a bit and here is what it is looking like right now. It will get modified as I start with the details.

the white line is the current proposed train track and stations
the blue line is one of the river boat transportation line and its stations
the green line is the second river boat transportation line and its stations

Title: Re: Renee' Feu Adventure Park - Entry Plaza
Post by: Bullethead on September 11, 2018, 11:26 AM
Looks like fun ;).

I see there's a bug with the river boats now that makes them useless as transport rides.  The boats don't stop at any but the 1st station.  I expect this will get fixed shortly so go ahead and build it as you want it, but don't be surprised if it doesn't work as you want to start with.
Title: Re: Renee' Feu Adventure Park - Entry Plaza
Post by: wowmanrct on September 14, 2018, 12:10 PM
I hope this gets fixed as I need them to be transports for this to work. I see that the trains have the same issues.
Anyway - trying my part at the 3D image...here is one of the security area.

^Success! (It's about time :mad:up:) The pic turned out really well. The foreground objects (palm tree & lamp post) always make these 3D images especially nice. I like how the security checkpoints trail away from the camera. And how the background palms stand out from the distant hills. :up: Hmm, I just noticed that the 2 halves of your image aren't the same width (left is narrower). How'd that happen? No biggie, but that part of the image won't be in 3D. Still, I like how you arranged the shot to include as many layers as you could. (I would include another *thumbs up* smiley but I already used up my quota. :P)

I really like that façade!  As you might have noticed in the recent contest, I fell in love with the temple parts ;)

I'm just thinking ahead here, but given that you'll have both a tropical jungle area and a Temple of Doom area, are you going to make a rapid transition to some other theme inside the gate so as not to do my thing and overdo a particular theme? :D
Title: Re: Renee' Feu Adventure Park - Entry Plaza

Post by: Bullethead on September 17, 2018, 04:22 AM
I meant, is the main plaza just inside the gate going to be like whatever city Renée lives in, as the base from which she sets out on her adventures?

BTW, I believe the façade and thread title have typos.  I think it's "Renée", not Reneé"  :)
Title: Re: Renee' Feu Adventure Park - Entry Plaza
Post by: wowmanrct on September 17, 2018, 05:43 AM
Oh great - now I have to start over. Thanks for pointing out my grammatical errors. Inside the gate is going to be a "port of call" area...which will be a mashup of various styles and things...kind of like a hustling market/central hub to the adventures that await you.

Very nice 3D shot, wowman. I stared at it (cross-eyed) for about 2 minutes. There's so much to see and so many layers to see them in. You might want to take a look at the 3D GIF animations I just posted in my RCT3 park and see what you think- maybe try your hand at it if it's something that interests you. :)

A little bit of building behind the scenes. I had placed the train track that will circle the park...but it was too close to this plaza area and to high...so I pushed it back and lowered as low as I could go before it conflicted with the path...had issues making it lower  as when ever I removed the path I couldn't get is back the way I wanted it. So, decided this height was good and would work. There will be station built on the raised track real soon.

Title: Re: Renee Feu Adventure Park - Entry Plaza
Post by: Bullethead on September 30, 2018, 06:29 PM
In my experience, tracks and paths follow different rules.  Track limitations can be turned off (partially) but not path limitations.  The upshot is the following 3 bullet points:

* a station (but not the rest of the track) must have at least 4m clearance above or below any existing path.
* a path must have at least 4m clearance above or below any existing track, and 4m below and 8m above an existing station.
* a track (not the station, just the track) can be placed at any elevation relative to an existing path.

So, if you want tracks making level crossings with paths, or running along main street paths at ground level, you have to make the paths first.  If you also want the station at the same ground-level elevation as the track and paths, you have to leave a space in the path network for the station, so you can put it at ground level.  If you have to change a path at the same elevation as a track, you have to delete the track first, then change the path, then rebuild the track there.

Note that stations have a flat surface bottom that's 2m below the level of the platform.  It's this flat bottom that must be 4m above any existing ground-level path, so the track in the station is 6m above the path.

I've got to start doing plaza decorations like that compass.  You always do it and it always looks great.

Did you, however, verify that the directions are accurate?  Or inaccurate.  After all, if peeps can't find their way back out, you might make more money off them :)
Title: Re: Renee Feu Adventure Park - Entry Plaza
Post by: wowmanrct on October 11, 2018, 08:35 AM
Good point. I think its wrong. I was setting it up as the entrance faces north, but the way the sun moves in game, compared to the park, does not look correct. Now this is going to bug me throughout the build. Thanks a lot buddy!
Title: Re: Renee Feu Adventure Park - Entry Plaza
Post by: Bullethead on October 11, 2018, 02:36 PM
Hehehe, just doing my job ;).

It's easy to figure out the directions.  Just put a vertical post somewhere, set the time to 1200 or 1300, and see where the shadow is.  That way is north.  1300 usually aligns closer to the map's world axes, I guess due to daylight savings being in effect in the summer when parks are open :)

That building and the way the train passes by look perfect.

In the 1st shot, I saw some stuff on the back porch of the building and immediately assumed it was a BBQ for the staff to make lunch with.  But then I saw it was a spare life preserver.  Maybe you should put a BBQ there, though ;)

THX guys. I need to redo the window shutters. I used a tv monitor (as a billboard originally) but they are lit up at night and I didn't really like that...but I see we have new shutters in the new DLC, so I will swap those out as soon as I get a chance.

Here you can see this building at night with the glowing shutters

That's quite a posh set-up.  In my experience, a "guest relations" building has only been about buying season tickets, reserving the park for large parties, and lost-and-found ;)

After some feedback, I changed this building to now be called the Adventurer's Club, instead of the Guest Relations building.
Also, the shutters have been updated from being tv monitors (acting like a billboard), to using the new in game shutters, so that they do not light up at night.

Really nice map. They take me a long time to do as well. Like you said, a lot of that time is spent experimenting with the photo editor's effects. And if you're like me, the most time is spent looking for the right fonts to use. I recognize the Papyrus font.

Post by: Bullethead on November 10, 2018, 06:58 PM
Damn, Wowman, I know you build way ahead of what you show but that's still a huge amount of stuff for a new project :).  I really like where this is going already and also the styling you're putting into it.  The overall layout and the stuff you're going to scatter around it are all pregnant with pending awesomeness.  I really look forward to seeing this get fleshed out.

Remind me not to book a flight to this park, though.  I think I'll take the bus instead, given the number of crashed aircraft around the place making me think the local airlines aren't totally safe :D.  I love how you used the plane engine as a ceiling fan in the Adventurers' Club.  Hadn't noticed that from the stills.  But that makes me ask, why is the prop still turning on the crashed biplane in the entry plaza?  Wouldn't it be more appropriate for that prop to be either still (as like the plane ran out of fuel) or bent (as in still running when it hit the ground due to crashing for some other reason, such as bad weather) ?

I think I spotted the familiar silhouette of a Nepali 5-tiered pagoda in the Port of Call area.  I'm very flattered you like it :).  But please feel free to make it your own with structural and color changes.  I envision all my blueprints as mere starting points for artistic innovation.
Title: Re: Renee Feu Adventure Park - Entry Plaza
Post by: wowmanrct on November 12, 2018, 06:08 AM
Yep - lots of downed transportation in the jungles and such.

Here is another drawing of a plan in my head for the Port of Call area. lots of random placed buildings and paths. This area is kind of the main street of this park, but very unstructured. Want it have have the feel of a bustling port of sorts.
(https://imageshack.com/a/img923/3128/41cG6z.jpg)


And as I start to place stuff...I also circled the main areas of where stuff will go and you can kind of see how it starts to follows my chicken scratch.

I'm really building this area out slow, so I will post photos as I make progress in each smaller group of buildings. (life and work have been busy. remodeling the master bath and its been dragging on for months now...almost done and I can spend more time playing this game for fun).

As I mentioned above, most all this land will be blueprint imports from the workshop. I will give credit the best I can as I tried to keep track of everything, but there is a lot, so please forgive me and let me know if you see some of your work and I didn't call you out.

First is Confisco Grille Restaurant by Universal802. Great work on this building and I had to use it. I did embellish a little by adding some extra plantings and an outside eating area.
I left the name as is and see this as the main more upscale restaurant in the Port of Call area.

I also added a pathway behind the building that traverses along the river

This area is a couple hut like buildings with a market area in front of them.
Used blueprints from the following that were modified slightly to get them to fit and added a few vending machines as well.:
Pieces from Arabian Style Bazaar shops/stalls/stands Market Place by Paulsley (Spice Market and snake charmer)
Pieces from Arabic village by Indes12 (huts)

I like it! I can see an inspiration from Islands Of Adventure, and in some instances Adventureland. Great combination of ideas present in other parks and excellent originality.

THX again to all that are enjoying my playtime.

Just to give you some perspective...everything I have covered in detail so far in this land is in this circled in this original overhead shot of this land as I started building it.

Moving onto the next section of the Port of Call. This building was pulled from the workshop from my good buddy Sdanwolf's Mad Scientist's Garage. I did make some modifications to it to fit more with my park and called it the Itchy Ape Garage. It hold a shop on the side and a few vending machines inside. You cam also see the directions sign that I will placing throughout the park to help guest (virtually) stay on track and not get lost.

On the back side of this group of buildings i used Corner shops - Arabian- Workers Village Stores by TheGreenBear. Again, changed it up a bit to fit in in better. I also added a covered corridor between the two buildings that houses a bathroom. I will have better pics of that later.

Hehehe, "Itchy Ape" :D

I recall seeing Sdanwolf's garage.  You really found a good home for it.

BTW, in case you didn't know, "feu" (fire) and "fou" (crazy) are pronounced the same in French, so naturally there are a lot of puns based on this.  Ever since Renée Feu got into the game, I've called her "Renée Fou".  So this park has had me chuckling every time I read the thread title :).  Maybe you could work that into the park somehow?

Here is the section of this land that I'm showcasing right now

On the other side of this central complex of buildings we have Beer Stall Cart by Kao and Carribean Clock-Tower Building by Sebguy.

Here is a closer look at that connecting hallway that houses the bathroom.

I like "main neighborhoods" as a change from "main streets".  And this one is has such a unique blend of scenery.

I like the lighting very much.  I'm sure Grrt is thinking, "but you didn't light up the whole place and there are big shadowy spots".  But this is some pieced-together building in a 3rd World country that's lucky to have electricity at all, so it SHOULD have dark spots ;)
Title: Re: Renee Feu Adventure Park - Port of Call

I have to say...after just being at Disney again, I was paying extra attention to lighting in every park this time around. And while there is a lot of accents and specific themes going on...I really noticed this time around how dark the parks (paths) actually are at night. If it weren't for people wearing light up Christmas light necklaces...I would have head-on collided many times with people. As many times as I were in parks at night before, never really noticed this before this time until I really paid attention to it specifically. So, I may start to change my lighting schemes as I progress along in my parks.

Sooo... the upshot is- simulated themeparks have better lighting than real parks? Who knew.

I like all the paper bag lanterns- hope it doesn't rain. :D

I've noticed the same thing on my last visit to the Disneyland Resort. Main Street is nice and bright, but some of the other lands are hardly lit up at all. I kept thinking, "they need to add more lamp posts here so the paths are bright like mine are in Planet Coaster." :P

This section contain the following blueprints:
Medium Egyptian House by shiremct

The Florist Caravan by Wikz
In front of Moorish building I made - is medieval market by Arisylphia

I like that last shot best. If you're standing where the camera is and you look down the street, you see all the lanterns and interesting buildings- it draws you in. Makes you want to walk over there and see what it's all about.

Is there some significance to the giant floating pumpkin next to the Observatory restaurant? :P

its a small hot air balloon that was part of the blueprint. I was going to swap it out with the in game one, but it was just too larger for this area, so I left it as is and thought it worked ok. It looks better from other angles.

I was also going to connect the different building along this path more, but in the end decided it was better to allow the views of the river between them as this part is more like a street along the river. I also tried flipping the buildings so the main walk was along the water, but I didn't like the way the building felt more separated from the rest of the area when I did that.

Wowman, you sell your own Moorish building short here ;).

Anyway, I was curious about that "flying pumpkin" from earlier pics and think it works in fine as-is.  As for lines of sight across the "bayou" (I live next to the bottom end of The (Mississippi) River where it's nearly 1 mile wide even when not in flood stage so anything smaller is a bayou/creek to me), I see all kinds of interesting things in the background there and in the previous series of pics, too.

Some of those background buildings you see are just placeholders of stuff I downloaded from the workshop and might be placed in the general area you see them...or not used in the end. Thats how I plan to place what I want to use so I don't forget I downloaded them by the time I get to that section of the park.

Beautiful scenery.  Except in the 1st pic, there's some horrible thing near the left edge.  Luckily, you mostly hid it behind a tree ;)
