I'm probably going to get flamed completely off the forums... but, it's kind of frustrating trying to find a decent track around here. IMO... the game is called ROLLERCOASTER tycoon.. not ThemePark Tycoon or CuteLittleBuilding Tycoon.. they have software for that stuff too. For me.. it's allllllllllllll about the coasters. Even though I've been playing RCT since Day 01 on the release of the original RCT; I consider myself to be quite the noob when it comes to coaster design. I just slap 'em together... test 'em out.. and hope the results are nice. Sooooo.. without further ado... my first couple of track submissions for RCT3... please be gentle

"Eat the Rich" track file... a nice little Woodie with a 7.92/7.86/4.52 rating (http://www.ripway.com/members/getfile.asp?file=\2004-11\208877\Coasters\%5BWoodenRC%5DEat+the+Rich%2Etrk)
I can't remember correctly.. but it just MAY be my first woodie with an excitement higher than intensity without the use of scenery or theming.

Eat the Rich(song by the band Krokus) (http://us.f2.yahoofs.com/bc/419a4f1c_11fb3/bc/RCT3Stuff/Eat+the+Rich+music.wma?bf3OlmBBkCAF5i1f)
It's cheezy and unneccessary.. but after testing.. the peeps in one of the scenario parks all loved the music

"Gordian" a nice(yet expensive)Stand-Up Twister with a 8.17/6.62/3.47 rating (http://www.ripway.com/members/getfile.asp?file=\2004-11\208877\Coasters\%5BStandupTwister%5DGordian%2Etrk)

I'll be posting more tracks here as I get 'em designed.. and I'll try to keep from posting too many schitty tracks.

Comments/criticisms/assistance is/are greatly appreciated

All but the song file links are working now... I'll be linking a few more track files in a few minutes.

You can try http://www.imageshack.us/ for hosting pictures just make sure they are JPEGs or they won't work.

if you can't change them to Jpegs then do a search on the net for "BMP to JPEG"
it should give you a good list.

But for you I see you have a Jpeg convertor or change the file format.


Looking good btw, they look fun.

With additional track pieces.. .this coaster type has tremendous potential. Had fun playing with it.

This one I call "Swift Kick in the Lap Belt" Feel free to rename it to whatever you want and landscape to your heart's content.
