Hello everyone and happy Friday! I have been watching the recent news on theme park reopenings due to recent events, and have taken a step to add more realism to this project and soon the others. Disneyland Park is expected to reopen on June 1, 2020.

To the Disney fans who come often, you will instantly notice a few differences with the main entrance. I am going to tell you how the entry procedure has changed.

Before going through the contactless security check and temperature screening, guests are informed/required to have proper mask protection. There is a mandatory temperature screening after the contactless security check that involves the pre-existing metal detectors. Should a guest need an extra screening, there are new procedures that the security team has been trained to perform, while maintaining proper safety standards.

The massive tents will house the temperature screenings and any potential questions regarding face covering standards. We have plenty of cast members and health officials on-hand to help any guests requesting assistance.

Once guests are properly screened, the magic can resume normally (with some extra caution of course). This summer we are bringing back Summer Nightastic. There will be extra magic in store for guests, such as movies on the castle and various events to help celebrate summer. During the adjustment process, Summer Nightastic will be limited while things go back to normal. Guests will be informed of any changes to the schedule should it be deemed necessary.

For almost 3 years, this has been the sign that has welcomed guests to the park. Recently, we changed some of the posters in the entryways to help reflect some of the highlights. There used to be more, but RCT3 kept making billboards difficult.

Some experiences are currently in-development, but will be opening this summer/fall.

Due to the guidelines, Mickey And The Magician will not be performing. Other shows that will be closed are Mickey's Philharmagic, My Friends Tigger and Pooh. The nighttime castle shows will proceed as normal, but will be heavily monitored by crowd control cast members to ensure everyone is socially distancing.

This is a sight that never gets old! Main Street will be the first area that sees some new procedures as well. Social distancing guidelines will be followed for all lines at the merchandise and food/beverage locations. To the best of our ability, Main Street will have two way traffic to help not only keep a steady flow of guests, but to follow the requirements.

Yep, still not over this! I am excited to see the Walt Disney World Cinderella Castle when the refurbishment is complete. This was done to celebrate 3 years of magic, and there will be more later this year!

A land that is still a work in progress is Tomorrowland. There are in-game paths and grassy areas still common in this land that will be filled soon.

There's a great big beautiful tomorrow shining at the end of every day! That song is true everyday and we will continue to live in a world of progress.

A not-so-hidden Mickey.

One thing I feel is a really cool design element is the location of Space Mountain in this version of Tomorrowland. Normally, Space Mountain is off to the side or in a corner. In this version of Tomorrowland, Space Mountain is prominent in the land and sets up the area for Mission Space. It is something different yet functional.

Last photo from Tomorrowland, now it is time to explore another area of the park.

Adventureland is very different in this Disney park. We will have Pandora: The World Of Avatar, as well as some other experiences that are pending development. Pandora is in the process of adding details and structures to help further tell the stories of the experiences that will be offered to guests.

Do not be fooled by this overview, Pandora is actually huge! The goal for this land is to make it seem as distant as possible. We do not want you to see Cinderella Castle or Space Mountain at all. This land is very close to Main Street, but you will not see it.

This is one of the most thrilling elements of Flight Of Passage. Also in this image is the Satu'li Canteen that is currently in development. It will feature the same offerings as the version in Disney's Animal Kingdom, so those in Dubai can have their cheeseburger pods real soon!

Flight Of Passage will feature 2 launches and 3 inversions. This will be an attraction to attempt to get a fastpass for because it is a unique experience.

The Imagineers took great care to make sure Pandora cannot be seen throughout the park. Currently, there are a few areas that you can see Pandora (Agrabah for example), but much of these areas are going to see developments as well that will fix any issues with sight lines.

Adventureland in Dubai will be different, the stories that will be told are still in development and will be until the right mix is determined.

Cinderella Castle is a sight to see, and RCT3 has been very helpful to cure that craving for Disney magic.

Fantasyland is a classic area. Goals in the future are to further expand and tell more classic stories to bring more experiences to the park. Some will be returning and others will be brand new! I am not going to get into details yet because I want to work on the transitions and get everything to fit.

Honey Chicken at Kanga's Kitchen will be sold when the park reopens. I think there would be a riot if Kanga's Kitchen was not open.

To close this update, I wanted to say thank you all for the continued support. This is an ongoing project (like the others), and there have been a lot of months where this went silent. My goal is to pick things up this summer and do long updates if I get a lot done. I want longer updates with better quality instead of the updates being short and choppy. Other than that, see ya real soon!

Been busy busy busy! Trying to readjust to online learning for my summer classes after going on a week long trip to Indiana to visit family. Working on my RCT3 projects on the down-low to get them a high quality before going back to posting like crazy. The last few months have been real isolated for me. Lately, I just see nearby family and that is it, but with everything opening up I will probably start going out more like I used to. Other than that, life is alright. I am glad to see you guys on here!

I am just going to camp out at the entrance everyday. The expansion definitely looks like a thrilling experience is coming and just like most of this park, it will be unique!

Quit spoiling us! Awesome creations and I am always ready for more from you because you are truly pushing the limits.  :yes:

This looks great cody! Great castle and architecture. The lighting is glitching out in the bottom left corner, but I know it's can be hard to fix those sorts of things.
Thank you so much! The castle comes from an old building save file that I modified to not have the stage. As for the lighting on Main Street, the struggle is real. I will have to look into better lighting for Main Street (possibly the whole park) once I finish Pandora.

Excited to see the progress that has been made! I am doing the same as I have made progress and am getting ready for an update as well.
Thank you! Once I get some stuff done outside of the RCT3 world, I will try to post multiple updates in my projects. It has been a long time since I have done any formal updates.

I am loving the progress. Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit in my parks used to have a launch up in order to to make it up the "lift." This was before the CT existed....good times. Overall, what you are doing is awesome! I would/do have a hard time with studio parks, but a recreation I could see takes the ease off of making sure themes fit. This is a recreation I try to keep a close eye on because it is amazing!

Sometimes you need a little magic to get you through the day. Disney however, keeps making magic through the night.

I am hard at work on getting things "update ready." From floating mountains to new experiences, things will be even more magical this summer!

Awesome job on the starflyers! Kind of scary seeing it in RCT3, many of us will be going to space with this cfr/ct.

Well done! I am considering getting back to making small parks to get some ideas going for the bigger projects. This is definitely giving me ideas.

I have Planet Coaster and Planet Zoo on my new laptop and RCT3 on the other. When I have free time from these now online classes, I swap laptops and play RCT3 because of the numerous projects I have going. Planet Coaster is different, but I play it sometimes just to get my theme park gaming fix, but it will not replace RCT3 for me. A lot of the members that commented above have great points that I agree with because RCT3 has so much that has been done to it, I personally could not just toss it away.

The teaser looks too real to be Planet Coaster, most of this project makes me question what is real anymore! Well done!  :D

I love the way everything is looking! This is already very detailed, so I cannot wait for more!

This is looking awesome. Maybe the Orlando topper and maybe a plain shape for the top. This is going to be a neat addition to skylines of many parks!

Congrats on another creation! It looks amazing in-game. I am currently experimenting with layouts, and once I have a location set it will be built in my Hollywood Studios!

From myself and all of us here in the SGW community, Happy Easter. I hope everyone is doing well this Easter Sunday, and if you do not celebrate it I hope you are staying safe during these different times. May all of your parks thrive and continue to inspire everyone in this community.

Both are incredible! I am excited to see more creations from you and cannot wait for everything to be in-game.

With this I want to formally announce that my Disney's Hollywood Studios is getting a Toy Story Land. This will be one of the first few steps of getting this park developed.

Francescoaster you never stop inspiring me and this is probably going to be one of my favorite CTs of all time. I am excited to be able to get on this attraction without a fastpass and being able to push the envelope on storytelling further.

This is awesome and thrilling! Looks like the peeps enjoy it too!

Impressive! I can only imagine the pyro budget for each showing.  ::)

We know who requested slinky dog (me) and I am super excited! Any creation of yours is amazing and I am ready to have one of your creations in one of my Disney parks. If you need more ideas, I am always open. :D

I do miss the days, around 10 years ago, when I would visit SGW and see the first page filled with new shared content and parks. Heck, I miss the days of the SGW arcade! Anyone else remember that??

I wish there were more people uploading on here as the first page goes all the way back to 12 January which is just over two months ago. I guess the core SGW rct3 folks never made the transfer to PC or most likely there are too many alternatives.
I remember being really young and just watching from afar. SGW has seen many changes since then and I am grateful to still have this community. With the recent events, I suspect a few more posts than what has been the "norm."

Planet Zoo / Re: Oak Creek Zoo - By Shiftzie
« on: March 18, 2020, 01:52 PM »
This is a beautiful zoo! I hope it sees a lot of donations from guests because it is amazing.

This is really giving me some ideas. You are making these pavilions amazingly! The facade work is spectacular, and it is really making me want to go to my RCT3 park World Of Discovery to make different adaptations of what you have created. Egypt for me I always want to make some small coasters for the energy, and include something inside a pyramid. Your take on Egypt (and Germany) actually plays with sightlines and what the guests are seeing at various angles, which is very difficult to really "master." This is what I want to see and you are nailing it!  :up:

You never fail to amaze me even with the simplest things. Nepal is looking great, and the night shots definitely show off how the time of day can bring a new life to an area. Well done!

This park is starting out great! It is simple yet has a certain charm with it. The charm really comes from the landscaping, and I feel if you keep working with that aspect as a "seller" this park will be even more magnificent. Again, you are off to a great start, and as you move on you will get picky with how things look.

I like the way this park is looking. I feel flat rides are great sources of energy in any type of land. You picked a great option for the Mexico area because the simple theming fits. Well done!

I feel the same way about the current events. I am now fully online for my classes, so that cuts out driving time. I do have to do schoolwork, but I oddly feel I have a lot of time to get back to creating.

I love the classic yet energetic feel of this park. This park is large and I could see myself spending many days trying to ride every attraction within the park. I love the look of everything and cannot wait for more!
