Oahu? That's different. :)   Looks like you already have the entire park built. :o  I love all the colorful neon and interesting shapes. Looks like a cross between Tokyo and the Emerald City of Oz.

I like the decorative archway leading into the Kathmandu area. And I love how the Tamur River Ride winds its way around, and through, the temple structures. :)  Oh, and... what the heck is that face on the mountainside?!!?!?! :P

Turkey: Hmm, with over 300 million people, and most of those people eating T-day dinner together as families- *does the math: 300 million divided by say, 6, carry the 2, subtract the ham*... I'll say  B. About 74 million.

Thank you, Gravquian. :blush:  Sometimes I think that I've bitten off more than I can chew; but then I think about all the CS, CTRs, and CFRs that I've downloaded from the CS Depot over the years, and I remind myself that I should give back to the SGW community, any way I can. :)

Thanks, LordZephon! :)  I'll download all your stuff from the mediafire links and begin uploading them to the CS Depot (might take a while ;)).

An excellent addition! Makes sense that you would start construction with the crash-through walls(s) and build the structure around it. I like how you used the river rapids ride to create that curved section of whitewater. And those flying buttress arches! They are my favorite part. In fact, that whole section of Qadira looks fantastic. :up:

Oh my, yes! Many of your sets no longer have working downloads in the CS Depot. Not sure how you would make the sets available though. DropBox? PM? MediaFire? Maybe someone who knows about these things could chime in. I'd be happy to upload them to the CS Depot. :)

Welcome to SGW, jstow97. :)  I have both of those sets and I will upload them to the CS Depot in a day or so.

I like the interior shot with the lamps hanging on those long pendants. The restaurant looks like it was remodeled from an old classic train station. Very nice.

@planetthrilldude57: I have a set called "TheCook_brickwalls". The readme says it includes stucco pieces, and that the set is incomplete. So I think this is the one you're looking for. I'll upload it in a day or so. :)

EDIT: The set is now available in the CS Depot. :)

Quote: "Think "Plymouth Rock"."

Shoulda went with my gut instinct, but it sounded too obvious, like a red herring.

Pee-Wee Herman and the Alamo: Again, my initial hunch was  A: Basement. Seems like forts/buildings back in the day (and in that part of the country) probably didn't have basements... although, it would come in handy for munitions and food storage. But that's what I'm going with.

Wow. They added tons of stuff! It's great that they're still giving their support to this game.

Planet Coaster Parks / Re: Fabuland 1985: Grand Reopening Day
« on: November 12, 2019, 10:20 PM »
Okay, *catches breath*, "Let's start at the very beginning, a very good place to start." ;)  I like the Fabuland title font; it has an old European look to it. Sendi looks happier in his/her new location- he's grinning from ear-to-ear, (he couldn't do that before since he was missing his left ear :P). I can tell from the glimpse at the Spukschloss interior that the ride will look elegantly weird (you seem to specialize in that). As does the exterior; a once-great mansion that has fallen into disrepair.

I'm not sure what "post car ride" means? I've never heard that term before. :-\

The Hotel Blue Buffalo (fun house) looks... fun. :D  Does it have a working interior? A walk-through perhaps? I like the beer garden shot with the green tables and orangey-red umbrellas. They look like flowers.

And like shyguy said, the park map looks great. The green background is a stand-in for a tree-filled forest. The text is very easy to read. And I like how you tinted the paths in the different areas to match the color of the text for that area. (You seem to specialize in that, too.)

I think the editor's notes are a good way let us know what to expect, and to let us know why you did things the way you did them.

Michael Dorsey?? I can't believe you remembered that, either. :P

The 1620 Puritan colony: Hmm, I'm tempted to say Plimouth Plantation, but I'll go with what wowman said- A. New Guernsey, and for the same reason.

RCT Community Board / Re: In search of RCT3 ride files
« on: November 11, 2019, 10:07 PM »
Hi, bman7. :)  If I understand correctly, you are looking for RCT3 custom flat rides (CFRs). You can find a whole lot of them in the CS Depot here:

https://www.customscenerydepot.com/index.php?action=downloads;cat=160

The CS Depot link is also at the top of this page. While there, you can also click on the CS List and search by Author, Custom Scenery, CFRs, CTRs, etc.

Some of the files have old links and can't be downloaded. But we're gradually re-uploading those files if we have them, to the CS Depot to make them available again. The goal, which is also the goal you stated here, is to create and all-inclusive archive so that the rides and other custom content don't vanish forever.

If you are looking for a particular ride and can't find a working link, let us know. if I, or someone else here, has the ride, we can upload it to the CS Depot to make it available again. :)

I'm going to guess that it will be a Tilt-A-Whirl ride. I don't think Lake View Heights has one of those yet. I like the queue and station of Lake View Falls; sorta modern, sorta rustic- Modern Rustic!

Look! Up in the sky! It's a (whirly)bird. It's a plane. No, it's SuperFisherman!

The helicopter tours building and parking area look nice. I'm having a hard time locating it in the park pics. It seem to be on the outer edges somewhere; maybe over by TopGolf? The plane looks great in these screenshots, but if you're walking around in the park, and you look up, you'll see it frozen in time; like an Outer Limits episode (or was it Twilight Zone?) :P

Absolutely no experience here, but I'm pretty sure that outward facing benches/chairs are possible. Vodhin has a set that places usable benches at various angles and away from the path. Here's the CS Depot link:

https://www.customscenerydepot.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=954

Maybe you already have it. I'm not sure if Vodhin's thread is here in the archives or if it was only at the old Atari site. Seems like a lot of useful RCT3 info is becoming lost to time. :(

Pretty sure (really sure) it's  B: Dorothy. Haven't seen the movie in decades but the name jumped out at me as soon as I saw the choices.

I still have the PM you sent me way-back-when, inviting me to join the trivia game. :)  I keep it just in case I decide to join. I've kinda gotten in the habit of playing the game here at SGW, which has the added bonus of other SGW members joining in if they so choose. It helps with keeping the site active.

Arg! Christmas decorations? I'm still eating Halloween candy. :P  Looks nice, cody.

RCT Custom Content / Re: Quian's Renfrews' v1 Set
« on: November 09, 2019, 08:31 PM »
Hi Gravquian. I just downloaded your set and tested it out in the game. :)  Not sure that I'll be selling Rooster Balls in my parks ;), but like you said, these can be used for any type of stall. I used one of Belgabor's invisible stalls inside the Renfrew stall, and assigned it to sell the Moorish Kebabs, which look like the "Nuts-on-a-Stick". I named it Chicken Kebabs and the peeps never suspected a thing. :P

I also tried using other custom-made stalls (including the in-game generic stall) and they fit the Renfrew stand pretty well. They had some (usually minor) piece of the counter sticking out the sides or front, but nothing that a little bit of shrubbery, etc. couldn't take care of.

I think my favorite items in the set are the thin scrolling signs (even diagonal versions!). I can see those being used in many situations. :up:

23
What a great ride! :)  The façade looks even better than I had imagined. The western town reminds me of Disneyland's Rainbow Ridge (now extinct). As we enter the mine, I like the row of rickety support beams angled every-which-way (except straight). I love how the ride is a mix of slow and fast sections. Also a mix of genres; old west, rustic, and spooky. I enjoyed the spooky areas the best (and I think you enjoyed making the spooky areas the best ;)).

Lots of classic dark ride concepts here- the lights that come on as you enter the scene, the glow-in-the-dark bats, etc., the skeletons (gotta have skeletons!), and the soundtrack. Is that an actual dark ride soundtrack? As far as finding the gold nugget... not sure. I thought I saw something that looked like a gold nugget on top of the crate just before entering the spiral tunnel; but that could've been just about anything. :n00b:

Nice job on this, Plokoon.

« on: November 09, 2019, 04:06 PM »
The dino pic looks great, to be sure. :)  I just wasn't aware that they had stuff like that in Animal Kingdom; didn't know where it fit in. I'd be taking pictures left and right in parks like this. Probably would've taken at least half a dozen of the big green dinosaur alone. :whistling:

I love studying the Pandora shots. It's clever how the Imagineers made the rocks look like they're floating by disguising the supports with the various vines and foliage. Um, how does that cartoony dinosaur fit in? And I'm not sure what we're looking at in that last photo with the 'cave paintings'. Looks like some sort of recess in the rockwork.

Best. Land. Yet! I think I say that about every new area you show us. :n00b:  Really breath-taking. I like the row of flags between the mountain peaks. All the pagoda/temple type structures add lots of interest and color to the area. And the sky temple ride is the perfect exclamation point!

Quote: "I do like the randomness of dinosaurs! Like a lost world of sorts JB  :D"

Oh, I agree Plokoon. Nearly all my (RCT3) parks (or scenarios I've played) have some sort of jungle cruise type of ride filled with dinosaurs. I love the idea of it. :)

28
That mountain in the background of the first shot reminds me of Sugarloaf in Rio de Janeiro. (sort of a random comment, huh?). The peeps really like your park, judging from the crowd in the 'late afternoon' shot. And I like how the angled support beams in the Mine Ride are set into the rock, like they're really supporting something. Speaking of support- That one cactus floating on the side of the Mine Ride rock looks like it need a little. ;)  Although, I suppose that's the sort of theming one might see in a pier park like this. I mean, if yer gonna have Stegosaurs, lions, and giant scorpions in Jungle Land; then why not floating cacti? :P

« on: November 06, 2019, 10:29 PM »
A great background story, Elch. I liked the toppled lampposts and the leaning tree (I hope Sendi got his ear back). ;)  Judging from that early morning shot, I think the park will do just fine with the new owners. Nice start.
