Hey

Well got hold of my copy of RCT3 yesterday and spent today playing around with it. Anyway Ive started on a semi-dark ride, log flume with crocodile cars to be exact that takes you for a 'cruise' into the depths of pirates, warriors and forbidden lands! Anyway the ride is only about 10% done, but heres some shots so far!


http://www.vapourhost.com/rct3/Shot1.jpg
This is the entrance into the ride so far, plain and simple until the station area is all themed out. As you can see the whole ride is enclosed and semi-dark.

http://www.vapourhost.com/rct3/Shot2.jpg
As you turn into the entrance your met with a dark glimpse of the lift hill while you pass through some fire fed snake tourch's, enough to give anyone the creeps (this piccy is a bit bright but in motion it looks sweet)

http://www.vapourhost.com/rct3/Shot3.jpg
Edging up the first brightly lit spooky hill, with little alcoves filled with flame tourches and that creepy silence!

http://www.vapourhost.com/rct3/Shot4.jpg
Coming over the top of the light hill and round the bend we encounter the evil priate protecting his special treasure, beware stand clear!

http://www.vapourhost.com/rct3/Shot5.jpg
At the end of the evil drop (in progress) we arrive on the beach packed with priates fighting over treasure, cannons, water and some nice palm trees.

http://www.vapourhost.com/rct3/Shot6.jpg
Turning the last corner we leave the pirates to fight taking a quick glimpse of some treasure before braving the next 'area'

http://www.vapourhost.com/rct3/Shot7.jpg
Wow, a new section, wonder whats in here?

http://www.vapourhost.com/rct3/Shot8.jpg
Belly Dancing anyone?



Well thats all for now folks, expect more updates and a download soon so you can ride the adventure too!

Small low res video available, low gfx, laggy game too due to runnin on old machine but its gives you a slight idea. I know the boat needs lowering but I cant go through the pain of it atm coz I have to remove and put roof back on ONE tile at a time using shift key!!! :eek: bring back the ctrl key!!

Good work. The 3rd Screen reminds me of the 1st hill lift on Valhalah at Blackpool pleasure beach

Hey

Thanks for the comments so far! didnt expect it to get a reaction this good. Well spotted dant, I loosely based the begging turn and lift on valhalla after spending last week at BPB going through 2x 2day wristbands, hmm bye bye 90 :(

very very nice just hope the peeps like it!!! Oh what I would do would be to go through the chambers slowly and to go to the next part you would go up a level, but at the end would be a brightly lit treasure chamber right at the top then you would go over a small hump you could not see over and plumet in to pitch black and down back to the station. Though I would use splash boats in stead as I have made an exitement 11.3 splash boats but only a 8.7 log flume. Also you could probobly do somthing good with the river rapids.

very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very big well done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hope the next part is just as good .Post screenys soon.

p.s the pirates look like they are dancing and try make the pirates be seen side on or so you can see their faces

Hey

Iam just finishing off the last of the pirate section then moving into the exoctic warrior bit, once done I will post a video up as well as some more updated shots! Have fun, will take a while tho as its hard placing roof tiles WITHOUT the ctrl key, one of the 2 complaints I have with the game.

Great job. Now if Atari can deliver on a ton of more scenery we could even build grander rides and parks.

But this is awesome. I was going to build something similar primarily as an exercise, but now I'll have to rethink things a bit. But your work and time have paid off, and your work is a true inspiration. As more scenery, animatronics and ride parts come out, we can only imagine where this will all go.

It will be funny to see if people stay home rather than go to the real parks and ride these instead ... LOL

Cheers:D

Thank's for the video.

I like it a lot I think I'll also try my hand at it. I would never thought of enclosing a water ride like you did. Thank for the inspiration.

I agree, more scenary is needed. I hope they expand on the current themes as well as add a couple of new themes.

Hey

Yeah I agree, we could do with LOADS more animatronics, just 4 pirates pfft! What would be cool is to have say 5 different pirates, each pirate could have say 5 diff animations plus the ability to set colours, this would bring loads of new possibilites in!

Ah well, for now Ill work with what I have.

Hey

I wont upload the park until the end as I dont want people to see the mess ups I make as I go along, rest assured tho I will produce an upload for the park as well as a complete video and gallery for it! I didnt know people could get this inspired and excited about one of my creations!!

Imagine making a ride like Spiderman at IOA...hope the expansion packs give us even more indoor ride features.

I agree! Best work I have seen to date. VERY nice job.

But now it makes me wish for SMALL track triggered prop items. How cool would it be to have those chest of gold pop open as you approach with something jumping up?

Good job, again awsome ride.

One of the things that caught my eye when I was out shopping for a game was Rollercoaster Tycoon 3. I was going to purchase version 2 but then I see part 3 and read the box "NOW RIDE THE RIDES!" and i'm like whoa! Finally! Put RCT2 back and rushed to the register and went straight home!

Possibly the most fun for me is creating rides like these and riding them. I will probably spend more time building good looking rides than good looking parks.

"It will be funny to see if people stay home rather than go to the real parks and ride these instead ... LOL" --- I was thinking the same thing, ROFL.

Hey

Well Ive been waiting for the patch for the euro version before continuing with this ride, however I will need to start the ride again for the patch effects to take place! Dont worry tho, I will be making this ride as part of a complete sandbox park, more screens to come soon and will be in a new thread, dont worry I aint vanished off the face of the earth!

It has been at least 2 weeks and I haven't been seeing any response to this thread. I am so curious about this ride and would like to know an update of it. Thanks.:) :D

EDIT: Oh, I didn't see your response above, vapour. I guess I should pay more attention.:p

Hey

Well the time has come for this ride to take on its real identity, yes thats right I have FINISHED crocodile cruise, but its now under a completly different name, the ride will appear as part of another post by me in a few weeks time as part of a complete park setup, Anyone want to guess on the new ride? and yes its a real life ride recreation.

Anyway, just thought Id finalise this post and let you guys n girls know about the current workings of my creations. Honestly Iam not sitting back doing nothing! something big IS on its way!

Keep your eyes peeled!
