Ok so far with my new park I've made the entrance which came out AWSOME :up: (Complete with pipeline coaster).
The screenies will talk for me ;)


In the FIRST pic, If you look to the left, that station is no longer there, I moved it to the back of the mountains because it wasnt right for the queve of the ride to be before the actual entrance of the park (The mountains are the 'entrance' to the actually rides, the regular little entrance of the park is further back) :) Its better suited right after the entrance, which you can see in the other pics. ENJOY!
(Also I may change the glass station b/c I heard glass can cause alot of lag, but maybe thats only if you have alot of glass in your park, so i think its safe :) )
Heres a zoomed out shot:http://img10.exs.cx/img10/309/Shot0135.jpg

Ok I've come up with a name for it. Its called "The Dreamcatcher" and the reason is since the parks slogan is making your dreams reality, the first coaster you see when coming into the park is a dreamcatcher, which will nullify you of any bad dreams you have as you come into the park ;). Tell me what you think.

What type of coaster was that?

11-24-2004, 07:36 PM
It looks like a pipeline coaster.

(Nice job!)

11-24-2004, 07:49 PM
Yep, Pipeline coaster.
The specs are
Excitement: 6.71(high)
Intensity: 3.98 (medium)
Nausea: 2.07 (low)
Which isnt that bad considering that i mostly built it to make the entrance looks nice and its pretty slow too. Also, the track nor the train hit the mountain side, ever.

And thanks alot Dattu :heart:

Sry for the double post but can someone teach me how to add this forum to my sig with the 'click here' link? As you can see from my current sig that i need some help :)

11-24-2004, 09:15 PM
What I do is I go into some thread (doesnt matter which), press POST REPLY, and click on the "http://" link. The first thing you can do is "Text displayed on the link". Type what you want there, and click ok. Then it says "Enter the full URL for the link. Put the URL there, and press ok. Something should come up. Copy and past that into your signature spot! And BOOM, go to any post that you have posted, and it will have words over the link (in your sig). Thats the easiest way I can put it! If you have any questions, PM me.

Ahh ok, I actually thought of doing that, so now i'll do it :) Thanks.

UPDATE: I've built the mall that leads into the sci-fi section. Its packed with shops, food courts, and a nice sky window to see the stars :)



UPDATE #2: OK folks, I just finished building this HUGE twister coaster for my sci-fi section. The scenery is not yet done but man, you gotta see the track :D

Tell me what you guys think. I'd love to hear some feedback ;)

Update #3 (11/25/04): Just finished the station, hope you like it:

Update#4: Also just finished another little section of the coaster and I think I'm finished (besides some small tunnels). I also might add some scenery INSIDE the room that you are about to see. Tell me what you think ;)

THis is a GREAT pic of my new tunnel (look at the expressions on the peeps faces! :haha: )

Construction shots of "Inter-Gallactic Catastrophy" A fully enclosed mini coaster to add to my sci-fi section, hope you likee :) Also please give some feedback on what you think, thanks.


Note that the 3 shots with the animatronics are leading up to the lift hill where the actual coaster begins (so you dont think that the coaster is boring :) )
I hope you enjoy!
(Also the walls inside that room are white and look really plain, what you recommend I do? Change the wall type or paint them another color? Let me know what you think, I'll experiment on my own also. Thanks.

Looking goooood mate.

11-26-2004, 08:36 AM
Looking good! But..........
There is one glitch in your twister coaster. Is it supposed to dissapear in the grass and then reapear a little bit later? Heres a pic of the mistake:


11-26-2004, 01:09 PM
Thanks alot Digicub! :D

Belloman, thanks for the compliment ;) Now I'm glad you asked that cuz I fixed that, what i did was save the coaster design then demolished it and then rebuilt it and viola, doesnt go under anymore :)

P.S.: I just finished inter-gallactic catastrophy. Heres a shot of the outside and two of the inisde that you havent seen yet. Hope you likee.

Nice Park so far. I really liked the mountains by the enterance and house the coaster winded around them. Also that twister coaster looks really fun to ride and I like how the inside of the mini coaster is. However Ive noticed for some reason when using the "Metal" type of buildings and you use the flat section it appears invisible from coastercam. I dont have any idea why but I stopped using metal structures because of it. Here the screenshot im referring too.

Edited: Wrong Link.Click Here (http://img80.exs.cx/img80/5413/Shot0165.jpg)

However the flat roof with the window appears and has no problems. Other then that great work. I added your park to my sig if thats ok. Could u also add mine.

11-26-2004, 03:07 PM
Thanks alot Enduro for the compliments ;)
About the steel buildings, I had no idea that they were transparent from the inside but its not too horrible. THey took a while to place so im going to keep them there :D I guess the coaster will be more of a nicley themed ride than a dark ride.
Anyways other than that I can't wait to get started on my next ride :D
Also thanks a bunch for adding me to your sig!! I'll add yours right away.

Update: Here's some peep cam screenies of walking into the sci-fi section (not finished yet of course). Enjoy.

Nice! I like the sci-fi section so far. I have a question... can I add your park to my sig? Will you add my park (Six Flags Grand Canyon) to your sig?

Thanks for the kind words and of course you can add me to your sig and I'll do the same but....

I have some news: I'm going to hold off on the park a little cuz my comp sux and my park is getting kind of tough to play, I'm going to wait till christmas to buy a new card. Right now I'm designing rides individually and its lots of fun not being bothered by lag. I'll post all my creations here as well, I have a few coasters to put up for download and some screenies.
Belloman if you dont wanna add my park now to your sig its fine but I'll add yours anyways ;)

There is a simple reason things seem invisible from certain views. In the computer-game making world, there is something we call "caulk." This is a type of texture that is not meant to be seen by players. You see it a lot in first person shooter games, on the backsides of buildings that are innacesible, on the underside of floors, etc. What caulk does is it makes the texture see through on one side, not the other. The reason this exists is for performance reason. Why should the game/computer need to compile/process textures that you will never even see? It is an easy way to speed up the gaming process. The pieces you used in the cieling were probably meant for the floor, where they would never need to be looked up at, therefore not needing a bottom texture.

Sorry, but I'm gonna stop the construction on this park :( I found that my computer can't handle a big park, so I'm just working on individual rides, its my passion...:D So i'm removing my park from my sig so I ask all those who have Fantasy Island on thier sig to remove it since theres no point since this park will not be finished :cry:

Thanks for the compliment though :)

12-09-2004, 05:18 PM
