Community Chat / Happy Easter
« on: April 12, 2020, 11:24 AM »
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.


Hey everyone! I started a discussion in the Roller Coaster Tycoon realm of SGW, and I figured this would be an "ice breaker" for discussions in the Planet Coaster section. I do want to learn more about everyone and want to potentially learn how to have multiple theme park gaming disciplines instead of just one game.

As for the discussion question:

I am not a master of Planet Coaster at all. For this game, I am a "click and place" player and spend little to no time theming. I do set small goals in terms of theming and having a continuous flow of themes, but my method of playing is at a beginners level. I am definitely open to hearing more from everyone because I am sure there are others at the same level as me. Please let me know what you think!

Hey everyone! One thing I want to try is to create discussion questions catered to this realm of SGW. Instead of writing full length reports, I would like to see what other members of the community think about various topics that could potentially allow everyone to learn.

As for the discussion question:

The type of parks that I feel are the hardest to craft are studio parks. We do not have a plethora of custom content to create these kinds of parks, but they are not impossible. For me, sticking with a company for a studio park can be either easy or difficult based on how detailed you want to be with your creation.

My Disney's Hollywood Studios park is an example I have a hard time getting the right mixture of concepts instead of random IP's. I prefer a flow in a studios park instead of soundstages with random themes. I do like the direction WDI is going with the real life studio theme parks, and that is the angle I wish to go with.

RCT Parks & Rides / RCT3 Quick Builds Series
« on: June 18, 2019, 08:08 PM »
Hey everyone! I know I have tons of projects on my plate, but sometimes the small parks are what seem to grab attention. I am going to experiment with different building styles and maybe bring in some popular theme park based books into live streams and see what I can do with what they mention. I am planning on a stream tonight, it will be a text stream to kind of test out this concept. I am willing to get out of my comfort zone, so I hope everyone enjoys this because it will be fun!  :D

RCT Community Board / [Discussion] How can I get better?
« on: May 20, 2019, 11:48 AM »
Hey everyone! I have been thinking of ways to get everyone to get into deep discussions with reflecting on your own strengths and weaknesses. This is going to only relate to RCT Games and gameplay. Not only are we going to discuss what we are good/bad at, but maybe someone disagrees or even wants to help you. Please share I am looking for constructive feedback not destructive feedback! I am going to make kind of a list, so if you have your own criteria definitely share.

Working with custom content
Park entrances
Real world inspirations

Okay/Needs Improvement
Keeping the story/consistency

Not To My Standard/Work In Progress
Theming continuity
Mixing scenery/variation

These are some of the things I notice, please do not beat yourselves up. Just make it to where you can say this is possible not impossible. Any questions, comments, concerns can be presented below, but if you need anything personal please contact me! Have a thrilling Monday!

Sorry for the constant lateness and off weeks. I explain the reasoning in this edition, but I always get so much support from everyone. Thank you!

Community Chat / The Weekly Ambassador Review
« on: March 18, 2019, 06:21 PM »
Hey everyone! I apologize for missing a deadline. I have been busy getting back into school mode since I was off last week. Before I reach the tenth edition, I wanted some feedback to get ready for the upcoming editions. Summer 2019 is when I estimate the editions will be refined and a bit better in terms of content and structure. I am still experimenting with what works and what doesn’t. I do appreciate the positive outlook I have gotten for bringing it back, and I hope to keep it going for a real long time!

Happy Sunday everyone. I did say this was going to be a "jumbo" size, but I broke things up into smaller chunks so it was not 30 pages of stuff. I rather be short, sweet, and to the point.  :D

Community Chat / The Weekly Ambassador Off Weeks
« on: February 25, 2019, 04:16 PM »
Hey everyone I am sorry that I did not post a Weekly Ambassador edition. I was away from my laptop and busy busy busy. This week will also be an off week because I have a "research trip" to Walt Disney World. Expect a "jumbo" edition next week. That is about when I begin spring break which is perfect timing. Again I apologize for the inconsistency, it was just one of those weekends. For a discussion, here are some (or a lot) of questions.   :D

Weekly Question(s):
1) How do you feel about the changes being made at Walt Disney World, especially Epcot?
2) What kinds of experiences do you think Disney will be going for in the near future?
3) With the official name of the new Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios Orlando, there is construction taking place for the rumored Jurassic Park roller coaster. What will be next? (New theme park does not count  ::))
4) In your creations, how do you know an area will be refurbished/re-themed?
5) With Epcot having multiple festivals, what would your park celebrate and in what season? What experiences will be present?
6) How much theming do you like to see used on roller coasters?
7) What is your worst theme park experience?
8) What area/attraction/etc has the worst theming?

I can go on and on, but this is the jumbo question week.  :n00b:

Happy Sunday everyone! I am going to try to get a normal schedule going. Fridays are my "free days" as well as Saturdays (for the most part). I hope you all like this edition, it is "medium size."

My apologies for the delay, but this edition will be a little different. As we progress the editions will evolve so here is the first "different" version. Please let me know what you think. I was tempted to make it even longer, but this is only the second edition.

Community Chat / Weekly Address #73 (Last One)
« on: December 28, 2018, 10:55 AM »
Happy Friday everyone! From the title, this is the last weekly address post. I am taking a huge leap and having The Weekly Ambassador return next week. My goal is to have the "due dates" set for Fridays, but I might give myself a range because a week is normally defined as Sunday-Saturday, so Monday-Saturday will be the range of posting with Friday being the main target. The weekly address posts began in the RCT3 board back when RCT3 was independent. Now these posts have moved to the Community Center and are planning to change into The Weekly Ambassador with improvements. My goal is to make The Weekly Ambassador somewhat of a newsletter. I might even do the first one early for feedback purposes. I will be analyzing more works to put into The Weekly Ambassador, but if you want an "advertisement" for your creation definitely comment below or message me on Discord or here. I know I slacked a little with these posts, but at times life gets crazy which is why I am giving myself a range of days to work with. If anyone wants to help I will very much appreciate it, but all in all I am happy that these posts lasted for quite a while and now it is time to really make my mark. I am more than likely going to have celebration parties in my parks tonight  ::) that might end up in the first edition, but thank you all for dealing with the random posts.

Weekly Question(s):
If there is anything you want to see in The Weekly Ambassador, what will it be? How might I make the transition easy and effortless?

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas Eve. We are now just hours away from Christmas Day (for some of you it is Christmas Day already). I am just going to leave this post right here because this is the time for being with friends and family. Thank you all for being a great community to share the spirit of the season with!

Happy Monday everyone! The spirit of the season is making its mark since Christmas is next week! SGW is the place to celebrate the holidays in theme parks, as well as share new ideas that can become realities. This week I have plans to spend time with the family, and I will be off and on here. Next week, my hopes are to be fully back. I have many concepts that have the possibility to change the scope of a few of my projects. I hope everyone had a great weekend and happy posting.

Weekly Question(s):
What is your favorite holiday tradition?

Community Chat / Start A Chain Reaction
« on: December 06, 2018, 06:59 PM »
Hey everyone! This is somewhat a motivation post, and I really want to see more activity. I do want to say some members are present all across SGW, and they are the ones who normally expect nothing. Those members only wish to inspire and share their ideas with the world. I really want everyone to go to those boards that really are overlooked and at least post once or twice. This can start a chain reaction with members returning the favor then it evolves into a large cycle of activity. I know there will be some members who say that they will not do that until their creations see comments, but sometimes it takes time. Once ideas really develop, more members will be attracted so definitely keep posting no matter what. I highly recommend checking out different projects, if someone has a hyperlink definitely visit it. I have learned about impressive creations just by clicking hyperlinks. Do not think of this as a rant, but think of it as a motivator. Thank you for your time, happy posting!
