The final four 3D images from ColeHammy59's Animal Kingdom park:

The dinosaur looks a little wonky; he wouldn't hold still. :mad:up:

This last pic is my favorite. All the foreground stuff really stands out from the building in the background.
I hope you have enjoyed these 3D images from a RCT3 park that no longer exists. But we still have ColeHammy59's videos and screenshots, so all is not lost.

You can visit ColeHammy59's Animal Kingdom park thread here:,18498.0.html

Wow Spanky, the wait was worth it! Your 'little' teahouse looks like a four-star restaurant. HeltRoy's pagoda looks fantastic; I love the muted colors. And those vases- beautiful! Everything about that last screenshot shouts 'China'. :up:

I love those beehive-style thatched roofs. What the heck is that floating stuff in the last pic? (rocks and trees) Avatar's floating mountains?

Fantastic terrain work! I love the contrast between the highly intricate building and its stark surroundings.

Here are the four penultimate 3D images from ColeHammy59's Animal Kingdom park:

Here's a trivia question I learned yesterday: That stretchy, sticky adhesive wrap (comes in many colors) that medical personnel wrap around your arm after a blood draw (or whatever)- For whom was it originally developed?

A: Cats
B: Dogs
C: Horses
D: Humans

Hmm, this one's a toughy... I don't think it's a hummingbird- their eggs are real small but so is the bird. House wrens are also quite small but I've never seen one of their eggs. Robin's eggs don't seem all that small compared to the bird itself. I'll go with C: The ostrich. Huge eggs but the bird is really huge.

That's gonna take a lotta wood. Gonna have to chop down a whole forest (maybe two)!

I like your Whip ride. It's amazing how much the Spinning Wild Mouse cars look like Whip cars; except for the googly eyes and the cute little snout. But yeah... Ya gotta replace it with the new Whip that's coming out. It's gotta fit! It's just gotta!

And I think you got the spinning disk name right- it's just "Spinning Disk" (I think). Did the (real) Cakewalk stairs move back and forth, tilt, etc. (funhouse style)?

Beautiful shots, as always JP. I like the light bulbs wrapped around the globe-shaped roof decors on the Rialto.

Dunk-A-Doodie..... :w00t: :mc3: :mc3: :mc3:  (Closest I could come to a doodie emoji)

Such beautiful warm lighting. :)  Les Colimençarts has a interesting look- inviting and elegant, but eerie.

Storybook Resort sounds interesting. :)

Quote: "...all kinds of sweet stuff. Not healthy, but de-li-cious! Except the balloons. I wouldn't try these. "

If you don't want us to eat the balloons then you shouldn't place them in such tempting, easily accessible locations. Why buy a candied apple when a nice, delicious red balloon is there for the taking. :mad:up:

(I like how you insert humor into your stories.)

I like that second image 'postcard', as well. Makes me wonder where it's been and how it came to look like that: Originally photographed in 1897, then made into an albumen print postcard in 1903, bought from a souvenir stand in 1904 when it was folded up and carried around in someone's pocket for 23 years, discarded into a trashcan on a sidewalk, which tipped over during a torrential thunderstorm, causing the postcard to float down the runoff next to a curb on a busy street where it was run over and splashed with mud numerous times before it was 'rescued' by a passerby and dried out next to a wood stove, becoming a little too dry and hot, which caused all the darkening around the edges. Then wowman saw it online and posted it here. :P

I like the first pic, too. Sort of a watercolor wash with India ink outline. (No elaborate story for this one.)

Well, I assume it's  A: US and Canada.  About 3,000 miles. The only one I'm not sure about is Brazil and Argentina. Do they even share a border?

A few days ago, ColeHammy59 posted an update in his Disney's Animal Kingdom park. (RCT3)

Park thread here:,18498.0.html

It was a bittersweet moment. We got to see a wonderful overview of the park in his YouTube video. But he informed us that the park file no longer exists; no more updates.

While watching the video, I felt myself experiencing a sense of loss, knowing that the park is no more. I also saw many scenes that would make excellent 3D images. So, as sort of a final farewell to the park, I made several stereo images from Cole's video. I'll be posting the 3D images here, a few at a time, over the next several days.

For those who aren't familiar with these types of 3D pictures: click to enlarge them, cross your eyes until the left and right images overlap, and allow your eyes to bring the overlapped images into focus. A few people can't make this method work. If requested, I can also post the images using the parallel viewing method, where you focus your eyes beyond the picture (instead of in front).

More images next time. :)

Thanks for the go-ahead, ColeHammy59. :)  I'll get on it. And yep, I was planning on posting a link to this thread. Maybe the images will generate a little activity in the ol' RCT forum.

The first pic looks like a huge red dragon coiled amongst the rocks and trees. :)  Not sure about the pink trees placed next to the red track. Around the station, they look fantastic. But with the track they seem to rob each other of color; the pink looks less pink and the red looks less red, if that makes any sense? Just a minor quibble; it still looks great. That's just my first impression anyway, others will probably disagree. ;)

Very nice video, very nice park. I enjoyed walking through it. :)  Lots of detail. Beautiful buildings surrounded by trees and foliage. I liked the colors on the spinning wild mouse coaster.

What a tragedy that the files were lost. :(

EDIT: After watching your last video I saw a lot of scenes that I thought would make some nice 3D shots. So I captured several stereo (3D) pairs of images. I don't want to clutter up your thread with my efforts, so I thought I would post some of them in the RCT3 Best Pictures thread, if that's all right with you. Of course, I'll make it clear that the images are from your park. I'll wait a couple of days for a response before posting any images. :)

Beautiful screenshots, wowman. The last one really holds my attention- something about the green and orange colors, the mix of foliage and rockwork, and the time of day.

I agree with you, planetthrilldude57 (your username's too long  :P). The current lack of RCT3 custom content creators is the main problem, well, not so much a 'problem' as simply the way the world works; things change.

New CS sets/CFRs/CTRs would definitely spur new interest, but there is little incentive to do so. All that time and effort for very little response. Most people have, understandably,  migrated to Planet Coaster, or so it seems- I wonder what the numbers really are? How many people play PC vs. how many still play RCT3? Whenever a 'lost' RCT3 CS set, etc. gets uploaded to the CS Depot, it gets lots of views and downloads. So maybe there's still a lot of quiet interest in RCT3.

I keep saying that I'll get into RCT3 custom content creation 'one of these days'. And maybe when I'm done with my Imaginarium thread, I'll actually do it.

I hope the colorful wedged building in the Geology area is part of the new plans. Maybe re-purpose it as something else. It's a real eye-catcher. :)

The horse must have escaped the tar pit and lived a long and happy life. :)

That's a neat way to illustrate what a tar pit is all about. I'm guessing that the tall dirt walls are man-made (concrete), otherwise they would erode away whenever it rains. Plus, danger of them collapsing onto the guests. I assume the fossils in the walls are also man-made-  real ones would be too tempting for souvenir hunters. Maybe #5 is that smilodon(?) fossil up on the rocks to the right of the pit.

The flowering cherry/plum tree and the foliage really bring the scene to life. :)  I like the muted colors on the structures; it gives them a 'harmony with nature' look. Beautiful. :up:

Good job on the bike path; with its scenic curviness, it really looks really real, fer real. (sorry.) As does the fenced-in walkway over the creek and the skatepark.

Bullethead probably isn't too concerned about a few potholes-  after all, he has to contend with gators chomping on his tires from time to time. Has to turn his fire hose on 'em to shoo 'em away. (pesky gators :mad:)

I just noticed how the numbered boxes on your map (and the large boxes at the top and bottom) are the same color as the paths in that area. A nice touch, having each area defined by its own path color. :)  I think it registered on a subconscious level but I didn't put 2 and 2 together. :n00b:

Love the falling-apart, rustic look of Dyna-Mine. And I like where the track makes that half-loop/twist thingy and doubles back under itself.
