Kev- Here is a tutorial to fix the RCT3 billboard issue:,15814.0.html

It sounds rather complicated but it's actually quite simple.

Welcome to SGW, Kev. :)  I know there are round windows available, I've used some of them in my parks. I'm not sure, but I think there is at least one round window in shyguy's Circus Center sets; set 1 and set 3, maybe.

As far as letters go: errt_EasyLetters set has flat lettering that glows in the dark (also non-glowing). There's also Zeppelin's rockwell font set with modeled 3D letters. I'm sure there are others as well. You can also make images in a paint program and place them on billboards. I used a billboard image for this Voyage To Atlantis ride side:

Hey RTRC. You can find Summer Showdown competitions from 2015 and older, in the RCT3 archives here:,19.0.html

Not sure which board has the more recent competitions. I think maybe 2018 was the latest one, and I'm pretty sure it was for Planet Coaster.

Okay, so I wasn't going to ask what that square of rocks is, in the first pic; but my curiosity got the best of me. Is it a sand/dust bath for the roos? A helicopter pad for vacationing roos? A teleporter, so the roos can teleport to other enclosures? A roo cemetery plot? A sandbox for little roos to play in?... I think that covers all the bases.

Yes, a very wise thing to do (says me). :)  With Large Address Aware the game can use ~4GB RAM, instead of the default 2GB. This makes larger, complex parks more stable, or at least less unstable. Less crashing. It's not a cure-all, but it helps.

Hey, disneyfanjmd. About the crashing: Are you using Large Address Aware, so the game can use more RAM? That may not be the problem though. Some custom content (scenery or CFRs) is too big for the game to calculate the shadows properly; so it crashes.

I love the row of shops set into the rocks. Floating tree? Those are the best kind! You hardly ever see them these days. (I think they've gone out of fashion.) :D

Great news, indeed! Do they have a website yet?

Thanks for the heads-up, shyguy. I figured something was brewing, as things weren't looking/working as expected the last couple of days. I was wondering if the differences were maybe that I accidently changed something on my computer. Now I know. I appreciate still being able to use the Classic theme. :)  I think I'm the only one who still uses it. :-\  It has its problems/limitations but it's what I'm used to; I know where everything is and what everything looks like, at a glance. Plus it's a little easier on the eyes than the default theme. I'm gonna miss not seeing someone's park image on the Home page. Maybe, perhaps, possibly, an image could be displayed elsewhere? So far, I haven't noticed anything different from how it used to be.

Wow. This park is very large and spacious. The Compass Plaza alone is almost as big as most average parks. :o  I really like Ralfvie's Arabian Days & Nights sets; well, I like all of Ralfvie's sets. And I like Fisherman's fairies flitting over Sorcerer Mickey's head a la "The Sorcerer's Apprentice". Seems like such a natural, yet I've never thought of it before. With your mention of the shady areas, I kinda miss the cast shadows. I'm not sure if you have them turned off or if it's just because of the custom paths, etc. that don't show the in-game shadows. Looking forward to seeing the various Lands. :)

I love the interior- colorful and diverse. Brings out the kid in me. For some reason, the girders on the ceiling really bring the shop to life; not sure why. At first, I thought that the marquee said "Enchanted Toulon". Toulon was the strange puppeteer in the Puppet Master films.

I like the table saw with the planks strewn about. The new attraction is going to be a Hell-themed darkride with devils and demons and... oh wait.

Mighty fine lookin' roo you have there. The faces do look rather roo-ish. The creek looks very realistic, especially the bank. What is that stacked yellow and green thing? Scratching post? Feeder?

I really like the Humpty Dumpty scene. Well, not so much Mr. Dumpty; he's sorta 'meh'. But the rest- beautiful, realistic, and inviting. I'd like to follow the janitor down that path. :)

Hey, planetthrilldude57. The only one of those that I have is Joey's Oude Tuffer (old-time car). I just uploaded it to the CS Depot here:;sa=view;down=4111

Hopefully someone else has some of the others that you're looking for. :)

Thanks for the tour, wowman. Did you show us the Whip ride (in the cavern) before? I don't remember seeing it. The video provided lots of additional views and details; like the intricate detail and color of the Kathmandu bridge as the camera crossed over it.

Looks like it's gonna be another great-looking interior. I'm intrigued by that giant Tinkertoy can; is it an in-game item, a toolkit item, or a billboard image? As a kid, I loved making 'working' carnival rides out of Tinkertoys, cranked by hand, using rubber bands as belts to give them movement.

Wow! This looks wonderful, LaBarbue (and welcome to SGW :)). Beautiful, highly detailed, and very immersive. The set decoration and lighting is excellent. I like how the logs/cars leave the station through that small archway. And how, in that one area, the track circles around on two different levels, one above the other. The scene with all the floating lanterns is (dare I say) magical. And I like how the guests meander past some of the sets on their way to (or from) the station.

A wonderfully detailed area, Berlin87. I like all the colorful paper lanterns strewn about, especially in the trees. From the night shots I've seen elsewhere, those lanterns don't put out much light, so you need a lot of them to do the job. More lanterns= a good thing; more color, more excitement, more theming. :)

Quote: "From ramen to dumplings to spring rolls: Enjoy the taste of China!"  I'll have some of each, please. I have a particular fondness for spring rolls. :)

I voted "It will be decent." Not really something you'd feel the need to write home about, but good for a year or two till it loses it's newness. The non-varying serpentine track seems kinda boring at first, but darkrides like this need a lot of turn-arounds to suddenly reveal the next scary/creepy thing. Such as:  :mc2: :1eye: :alien: :devil:.

I checked my "tracks/TrackedRides" folder, and I have "TrackCTR_T11Edits" installed. Is that the one? I can't remember using it, or if I had any problems with it.

Hmm. This one's a toughie. I liked the overall concept and name of Hethetheth's Witch-Oak coaster better. But I liked the coaster layout and station (beautiful) of iEddiez's Icarus better. Oh, after watching Icarus a second time, I figured out that the wooden planks are 'wings'. Clever. (But not very aero-dynamic. :D) I don't wanna choose!

I haven't been to a Disney park since 1976. :o

Yep, thank you to our shy host. :)  This is the only site left (I think) where we can share our theme park creations as ongoing stories with pictures, videos, GIFs, etc. Most appreciative. :yes:  (I am working on an update.) ;)

I voted for "Tomorrowland 2055 refurbishment" because (Disneyland's) Tomorrowland has been pretty static and uninteresting since the '98 refurb. After the '67 refurb, it had a lot of movement and excitement; not so much, now.

Re: Feed The Clown- Like Fisherman said, they're "terrifying". (Almost as terrifying as the clowns in that real photo. ;)) I suppose the game involved tossing a rather large rubbery ball, just barely small enough to fit in the clown's mouth. So, even though they're really close, the ball would almost always bounce off the clown's face instead of going down his throat. It would have to be a "nothing-but-air" toss. I'm not really sure what your version of the game is? Maybe like one of those Horse Race games where you have to squirt water into (in this case) the clown's mouth. First one to fill up the clown, wins. Those attendants look rather rough and grim; a perfect match for the scary clowns.

Greetings, loopycoasterfan (Ethan). Welcome to shyguy's World. RCT3 is still my game of choice, but I follow the Planet Coaster threads here as well (PC just looks so spectacular!). I'm sure you'll find a way to contribute to the site. Just commenting in people's threads goes a long way. :)  If you're still interested in RCT3, maybe you should locate a copy of the game (disk or digital download). There's still things you can do with the old game that you can't do with Planet Coaster. ;)

I think you and your friend made a wise choice by going with the theater façade. When I started reading the description I thought, "What? Who's gonna go into a dry cleaning store inside a theme park?" I understand that the magic show is meant to be a pleasant surprise (I'd like to see it. :)), but folks aren't going to know that, and won't be going into the dry cleaners, unless they spilled Dr. Pepper on their shirt or something. ;)

I like your refreshment stand. It has an iconic look to it; like what you would see in a real amusement park or state fair. Very permanent looking. I can picture it boarded up during the off season. Hmm, I wonder what "Feed The Clown" is? Tossing cream pies at a clown face?
