"Møøse bites" is just an off-the-wall Monty Python & The Holy Grail reference. (Maybe you already knew that?) You mentioned the painfulness of young Will's sprained toe, and you included a moose in the "Flora & Fauna" illustration, soooo naturally I thought of møøse bites. (It has to be the "o" with the slash through it or the humor just doesn't work.)

You have a nice, big picnic area here. Not everyone is going to bring their own food from home. A zoo-themed snack bar would be great.

Hmm. I really have no idea on this one. I suspect the answer lies in the wording of your question: "professional" and "championship". Seems like he changed his name quite early in his career. So I'll say  B: 1.

Thank goodness there was no sexually implicit language or images in this update. No siree Bob. Wouldn't want anyone to get the vapors. Young Will Tanner looks kinda hot... maybe one of his friends should open a window to let some cool air in... I'm sure it would help if he removed his shirt as well. Sprained toes are almost as painful as møøse bites; I should know, a møøse once bit my sister. No, really!

Community Chat / Re: Micro Soft Edge vs IE 11 ... another... dang-it!
« on: February 16, 2020, 09:14 PM »
I use MS Internet Explorer 11 for many things (like SGW). But I also use Chrome and Firefox for many other things. I suspect IE will continue to work fine for quite some time, maybe years. If not, then I'll probably switch to Chrome for those things. I've never heard of MS Edge; maybe I'll give it a try (if I need to). I'm still using Windows 7 and, like IE, I suspect it will continue to work just fine. No Windows Updates/virus patches, etc. though. I haven't downloaded those for ages anyway. I just rely on my antivirus program (free version of AVG) and an anti malware program.

Hi Gravquian. About unlit textures within an alpha based texture, doesn't errt's EasyLetters use unlit letters in an alpha texture? (Maybe that's not what you're referring to.)

Quote: "we even have a church". Yeah, where the clergy get a nice discount at Mother Edna's Boarding House.

The ballroom is everything one would expect an 1890s hotel ballroom to be- very elegant JP (Prof. Marvel). I especially like the nighttime screenshot photograph showing the stage with the grand piano.

"Gay Boy". Obviously a reference to the old phrase 'gay blade', a fellow who enjoys life and dresses fashionably; maybe even a swordsman. Only someone with a smutty mind would think otherwise... Not me... Nope. My mind is clean as a whistle... or a freshly lathered back at the Bath House (thanks Teddy). Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to attend a weenie roast near the Huge Eggplant (La Grande Aubergine Ballroom).

Lengthy, yes; but fascinating and humorous. Love the line about the Clergyman Discount. I like how you weave sexually suggestive phrases into the text, like: Teddy became "a favorite" at the Bath House (working till dawn); Berta and Doerthe (hmmm...) "whipping clients"; "weenie roast"; La Grande Aubergine Ballroom (the Big Eggplant), etc. And of course, the images are fantastic. I'm guessing that you did some research in selecting the first and last names of the various characters. They fit the era perfectly.

German language: I believe the answer is  C: Requires the capitalization of all nouns. I know, from visiting German based RCT3/theme park sim sites, that many words are capitalized. Whether they are nouns or not, I don't know.

I figured there was a lot of 'wowman magic' put into these workshop downloads. I was right. ;)

Here's one: What color did carrots used to be (long ago) before they were selectively bred for modern produce departments?

a) purple
b) orange
c) yellow
d) white
Yep, they were purple, back in the day.

Oreo filling: It's hard to imagine them coming in any other flavor but vanilla/white, back then. But I'll say C: Mint.

Hey, Gravquian. Isn't there an arched scrolling sign in the game? (Maybe it was custom.) If I remember correctly, the sign wasn't a rounded arch; I think it only had 2 angles, like the peak of a roof. The text would scroll up on one slanted side, then down the other. Seems like I've seen one with 3 angles; same as above but with a level horizontal section in-between the 2 slanted parts. So, if I'm not imagining seeing this, it should be possible to make at least a peaked roof type of scrolling sign. Maybe even with multiple angles, like you're trying to do. I think one with 3 angles would achieve the illusion of a rounded arch sign.

Whoa! Thank you, Gravquian. :)  You've immortalized me in RCT3! I just downloaded the entryways and tried them out in-game. I like the pebbly texture. I'm sure I'll be using these; I'm thinking sci-fi or modern theming.

I don't think I've mentioned it yet, but that's a great looking Mainstreet. A lengthy full-sized street with many shops. Do any of the shops have interiors, or are they facades only?

Wow, an actual BlogSpot page. You guys are going the whole nine yards. Can't wait for that wide-angle lens. ;)

I like the flowery text in the "Flora & Fauna" chapter. Perfect for an historical society publication from this era. Nice illustration for the chapter head, too. Although, it's all 'fauna' and no 'flora'. :mad:up:  That's understandable; adding trees and flowers to the illustration would make it look too busy and hard to sort out. And most people want to see the animals rather than the plants. It's more fun to feed a bear than a Sycamore, or a Trillium. (The Trillium would be safer though.) I see I'm rambling. I'll stop now.

Ahh, I kinda liked the idea of the domes being bouncy houses. :D  But the new roofs do look nice. I like the crown on top of the topiary arch. And the Joshua trees(?) at the entrance of Space Ranger have a nice alien/sci-fi look to them.

Just watched the whoooole video. :o  Absolutely riveting. To be honest, when I saw that it was an hour and a half long, I thought "Well, I'll just watch the beginning and skip through most of the rest". Nope. Didn't happen. From the opening scenes, I was hooked. I sat mesmerized through the whole video, and it seemed more like half an hour. And like warcat said, I don't have the game, so it was a real treat to walk through the park and ride the rides.

This video is a pleasant reminder of just what an accomplishment Kaleidoscope Piers is. The Channel5 guys' gushing is well deserved. :up:

Miss Edna Mae Jr. - A chip chunk off the old block. Nice to see another working woman break the glass ceiling (and floor... and bed... and pretty much everything else). "Frau Blucher" (Cue horses neighing in terror). I like how you're smoothly transitioning to amusement park rides, as opposed to the other kind.

Hahahahaha. :)  Dear Mother Bruin; always smiling, and so youthful looking. That's probably her high school yearbook photo. Madame Edna Mae... oh my... I bet she can bench press her own weight- 500 Lbs.- with the mattress on her back- while 'entertaining' one of the local male population.

The characters and bios started out innocently enough. But then... down the rabbit hole. Thanks for the grins and chuckles. :)

Quote: "The original history of Rose Park is, in fact, in terrible shape, having been dropped behind a book shelf and used as housing for a family of mice for years...  We would have shown the original cover, but after several decades as the floor covering in a mousey outhouse, it simply just wasn't in shape to be displayed."

Ah. I knew there must be a logical (and hilarious) explanation.

I absolutely love the character names and bios (and images). "Dewey, Cheatum & Howe". LOLed at that one (really). Sounds familiar; like it's from a 3 Stooges short?

"Tete de Taureau", i.e. Bullhead. Haha, close enough I guess. I'm still trying to sort out how one can be an amateur Neanderthal.

I'm sure J.P.'s hat was all the rage back then (or not). And Mr. Bruin's ursine visage (and hands) made me laugh. (He doesn't look so 'big' to me, though.)

This was a great update, Wagi and friends; humorous and creative.

I really like the idea, and execution of, the old book, Wagi. Especially the 'color plate' showing the wreath of wild(?) roses. My OCD self can't help but notice that the pristine (red) cover of the book doesn't comport with the ratty, falling-apart interior. But who's keeping score. (Me, evidently. Did I mention I'm anal?) I also like your choice of fonts. I know from personal experience that re-creating book covers and pages is actually kind of fun.

It's really remarkable how you've captured the 'storybook' look and feel in this park. A combination of beauty and fantasy; like a well-illustrated book of fairytales. Many of the scenes remind me of Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit.

I'm going to pretend that the blue domes on the Kid's Castle are inflated bouncy houses. :P (Are they?) I can picture the little tykes careening off the springy walls; slamming into each other. I like the Medieval-themed courtyard inside.

Neat idea- a director themed café. In that one photo, I see Spielberg and Lucas on the right. But I don't recognize the two on the left. Nice looking building. :)

Yay, slots! I would imagine quite a few people will find use for these, Gravquian. (The Cherry Bonus machine is the one I would play in real life.) Herbie and his lollipops, haha. I like that you included a cash machine. Really nice textures, too. Thanks! :)

I like the little details; like the photos from different movies on the walls. I look forward to seeing the 'drive through' ride. :)  I don't think I've seen mylar balloons in PC before; they look nice.

Beautiful enclosure! I like the round 'islands' of pathway winding through the middle. The vertical teepee-like poles add a lot of visual interest. :)  The gharials seem to be a little elusive though; they're hiding pretty well. ;)

I like how the chair swing flat ride is surrounded by lush foliage. The large spiral in Gorges Profondes is a striking (and interesting) track element. I also like the colorful geometric decorations on the façade of Neon Drive. The nighttime screenshot of Neon Drive, with the red neon rings captures the futuristic look very nicely. The night shot of your main street with the huge spiral of the coaster in the background looks great. And the colors (aqua and orange- 2nd to last pic) of the castle/manor looks very elegant.
A very nice first project, Mistercg. And welcome to SGW. :)

Adding the mist curtain and strobe lights to the T-Rex was a nice touch. It contributed to the out-of-control feel of the ride. And placing the T-Rex just before the drop added even more to the chaos and sense of danger.
