Miss Edna Mae Jr. as Little Egypt, such a natural. Looking at her photo, I think I would steer clear of Miss Sophia Winters... at least 2 states away. I'm guessing Miss Jones performed a series of exotic bird calls.

Quote: "The end of Volume One of the History of Rose Lake Park is almost here!"... Oh gawd, does that mean there is more than one volume?! My eyes! My eyes!

A beautiful and exciting coaster! I like all the water elements placed throughout the ride.

The "Brookfield Zoo" sign looks really nice all lit up at night. :)  Maybe the second pic could use a little more lighting? Looks like the peeps are gonna stumble over the umbrella tables and planters.

Judging from the abundance of armadillo roadkill that one hears about, I'm going to say  D: At least 10 pups.

We were so caught up with Marjorie's birthday wishes that we forgot to wish happy birthday to Dr. Jason Fishington (Fisherman). At 50, the old guy is getting pretty creaky now. ;)

Oh my. I don't know which of those photos is scarier. The writing continues to be spot-on.

A nicely written story to set the scene. The suspense builds!

Nice update, cody. :)  I like the green path in the Winnie the Pooh area. Along with the many trees, the rustic fence and flat ride, it definitely gives off a Hundred Acre Wood feel to the mini-land.

About Marjorie's birthday wish, I'm afraid my sick and twisted mind could come up with only one thing... Marjorie: "I wish I could be 'effed' by a big cock." Am I right? Am I right? :w00t:

I really like the green awnings all splayed out over the queue. You always find original and unique ways to theme your queues (and everything else.)

Another toughie. I'm guessing the ultraviolet vision is used to locate food. Plus, only things that fluoresce will glow in UV light/vision. Seems like lots of things in the ocean are fluorescent... so I'll say  B: Blue whales. Although, why wouldn't other types of whales/cetaceans have UV vision? King of Siam sez: "Is a puzzlement."

Again, hilarious. Thanks Wagi. You made me eject precious bodily fluids (from my nose) with that last line. And where the heck did you find that squirrel-hat photo. 8|  Is it for real? It doesn't look photoshopped. Why on Earth would anybody where a hat with a stuffed squirrel attached to it. Especially a proper young socialite. I'm not even going to speculate about the deep-sea diving suit photo. I'm guessing that's "Mr." Chas. White on the left, in the photo.

"Despite not sharing a common language..." (haha, I love that line) I bet Stubbs and Hoolihan were able to communicate using a plethora of rude hand gestures which they undoubtedly picked up in their home towns and on their many travels to strange and exotic places.

"Møøse bites" is just an off-the-wall Monty Python & The Holy Grail reference. (Maybe you already knew that?) You mentioned the painfulness of young Will's sprained toe, and you included a moose in the "Flora & Fauna" illustration, soooo naturally I thought of møøse bites. (It has to be the "o" with the slash through it or the humor just doesn't work.)

You have a nice, big picnic area here. Not everyone is going to bring their own food from home. A zoo-themed snack bar would be great.

Hmm. I really have no idea on this one. I suspect the answer lies in the wording of your question: "professional" and "championship". Seems like he changed his name quite early in his career. So I'll say  B: 1.

Thank goodness there was no sexually implicit language or images in this update. No siree Bob. Wouldn't want anyone to get the vapors. Young Will Tanner looks kinda hot... maybe one of his friends should open a window to let some cool air in... I'm sure it would help if he removed his shirt as well. Sprained toes are almost as painful as møøse bites; I should know, a møøse once bit my sister. No, really!

Community Chat / Re: Micro Soft Edge vs IE 11 ... another... dang-it!
« on: February 16, 2020, 09:14 PM »
I use MS Internet Explorer 11 for many things (like SGW). But I also use Chrome and Firefox for many other things. I suspect IE will continue to work fine for quite some time, maybe years. If not, then I'll probably switch to Chrome for those things. I've never heard of MS Edge; maybe I'll give it a try (if I need to). I'm still using Windows 7 and, like IE, I suspect it will continue to work just fine. No Windows Updates/virus patches, etc. though. I haven't downloaded those for ages anyway. I just rely on my antivirus program (free version of AVG) and an anti malware program.

Hi Gravquian. About unlit textures within an alpha based texture, doesn't errt's EasyLetters use unlit letters in an alpha texture? (Maybe that's not what you're referring to.)

Quote: "we even have a church". Yeah, where the clergy get a nice discount at Mother Edna's Boarding House.

The ballroom is everything one would expect an 1890s hotel ballroom to be- very elegant JP (Prof. Marvel). I especially like the nighttime screenshot photograph showing the stage with the grand piano.

"Gay Boy". Obviously a reference to the old phrase 'gay blade', a fellow who enjoys life and dresses fashionably; maybe even a swordsman. Only someone with a smutty mind would think otherwise... Not me... Nope. My mind is clean as a whistle... or a freshly lathered back at the Bath House (thanks Teddy). Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to attend a weenie roast near the Huge Eggplant (La Grande Aubergine Ballroom).

21
Lengthy, yes; but fascinating and humorous. Love the line about the Clergyman Discount. I like how you weave sexually suggestive phrases into the text, like: Teddy became "a favorite" at the Bath House (working till dawn); Berta and Doerthe (hmmm...) "whipping clients"; "weenie roast"; La Grande Aubergine Ballroom (the Big Eggplant), etc. And of course, the images are fantastic. I'm guessing that you did some research in selecting the first and last names of the various characters. They fit the era perfectly.

German language: I believe the answer is  C: Requires the capitalization of all nouns. I know, from visiting German based RCT3/theme park sim sites, that many words are capitalized. Whether they are nouns or not, I don't know.

I figured there was a lot of 'wowman magic' put into these workshop downloads. I was right. ;)

Here's one: What color did carrots used to be (long ago) before they were selectively bred for modern produce departments?

a) purple
b) orange
c) yellow
d) white
Yep, they were purple, back in the day.

Oreo filling: It's hard to imagine them coming in any other flavor but vanilla/white, back then. But I'll say C: Mint.

Hey, Gravquian. Isn't there an arched scrolling sign in the game? (Maybe it was custom.) If I remember correctly, the sign wasn't a rounded arch; I think it only had 2 angles, like the peak of a roof. The text would scroll up on one slanted side, then down the other. Seems like I've seen one with 3 angles; same as above but with a level horizontal section in-between the 2 slanted parts. So, if I'm not imagining seeing this, it should be possible to make at least a peaked roof type of scrolling sign. Maybe even with multiple angles, like you're trying to do. I think one with 3 angles would achieve the illusion of a rounded arch sign.

Whoa! Thank you, Gravquian. :)  You've immortalized me in RCT3! I just downloaded the entryways and tried them out in-game. I like the pebbly texture. I'm sure I'll be using these; I'm thinking sci-fi or modern theming.

28
I don't think I've mentioned it yet, but that's a great looking Mainstreet. A lengthy full-sized street with many shops. Do any of the shops have interiors, or are they facades only?

29
Wow, an actual BlogSpot page. You guys are going the whole nine yards. Can't wait for that wide-angle lens. ;)

I like the flowery text in the "Flora & Fauna" chapter. Perfect for an historical society publication from this era. Nice illustration for the chapter head, too. Although, it's all 'fauna' and no 'flora'. :mad:up:  That's understandable; adding trees and flowers to the illustration would make it look too busy and hard to sort out. And most people want to see the animals rather than the plants. It's more fun to feed a bear than a Sycamore, or a Trillium. (The Trillium would be safer though.) I see I'm rambling. I'll stop now.

Ahh, I kinda liked the idea of the domes being bouncy houses. :D  But the new roofs do look nice. I like the crown on top of the topiary arch. And the Joshua trees(?) at the entrance of Space Ranger have a nice alien/sci-fi look to them.
