The Cryptkeeper
After crossing Murky Lake on the rickety old footbridge, you'll find yourself in the dark shadow of Cryptkeeper Castle, home of your fearsome host "The Cryptkeeper"

Join The Cryptkeeper in a ghoulishly frightening flight through his castle, dive into the depths of Ghastly Gorge and hold on for your life in the hallwoed grounds of The Creaking Crypt.

This is a Tale From The Crypt you won't soon forget! As your fiendish guide says, "Hold on to your drool bags, kiddies!!!"

I just posted a new pic of Cryptkeeper Castle that is closer to completion. It's up in the first post. I have 2 more buildings to build to complete the ride - one in Ghastly Gorge and The Stationhouse. I'll probably finish them tomorrow and post a few more screens before I go into video mode.

Thanks Teirmose, Milk, Griffman & jddietcoke. You all roxxor my boxxors!

I just completed The Cryptkeeper. I updated the first post with new pix. Check em out and let me know what you think!

Whew! That took a while to build! :eek:

The Cryptkeeper Stats:
Excitement: 8.22
Intensity: 8.91
Nausea: 6.96
Top-speed: 62.53 MPH
Ride Lenth: 02:46

I wish I knew how to get the excitement rating above 9. Coaster designing is not my strongest suit. Maybe one of you coaster gurus can lend me a hand after you see it run (I'm talking to you n747, entersandman144, Griffman, CoasterExpert, chrsharvick29 & others). I could use a few pointers. :)

And speaking of seeing it - I think I'm going to get started on the video. I have no idea how long its going to take, but I anticpate it being complete before the end of the week.

Woohoo!

Griffman
01-06-2005, 01:48 PM
I'm not sure how i get such good ratings. My rides just come natural to me. Try using very fast drops and lots of them. Make sure you have at least twice as many drops as inversions. Banked drops work very well. And of course lots of scenery!!!

Milkdud
01-06-2005, 03:34 PM
OH MY GOSH!!!!! That's freaking awsome!!!!!! What a ride!!!! What a castle!!!!
Thanks Teirmose, Milk, Griffman & jddietcoke. You all roxxor my boxxors!
No no no no no. YOU, my friend, roxxor MY boxxors! :p

Also, don't worry that your coaster doesn't have a 9 rating, that doesn't mean anything really. The game has a very crappy way of calculating the rides ratings. Usually the only way you can get 9+ rating is if the ride is a giga coaster, or if it's REALLY REALLY long and unrealistic. Trust me, 8 is a really good rating, don't you DARE say that you suck at rollercoaster designing b/c it's an 8.

I mean, you can make the ride go 300+ MPH and just go straight and the game will say its low exitement low intensity...lol. So don't base how good a coaster is by it's rating, trust me :p

Wow! Impressive castle, Simbolism. The lighting in the night shots is very well done too. Even the smaller buildings out back of the castle have a great "gothic revival" look about them.

Keep up the great work!

Griffman
01-06-2005, 08:17 PM
Actually milkdud I can make twister coasters with excitement over 9 so thats not true wth the Giga Coasters. I can make rides that are 2 min long and have an excitement rating over nine. But you are right. Eight is a very good rating. And simbolism does make amazing rides. I just like to go for exc. of nine.

Simbolism
01-06-2005, 09:27 PM
Thanks again ya'll.

@Griffman/Milkdud - Thanks for the kind words and advice regarding the coaster-design. I can't help it though - If I know 9 can be achieved, I WANT 9, GOSH DARN IT! [edited for language]. What would be even more helpful would be to have the formula for what each track piece adds/subtracts to ratings at each given speed/force. I wish some sort of table existed... y'know what I mean?

@DisneyFREAK1178 - I actually started Frightmare and built the coaster in November - before I began work on Inspiration Park. It was a pretty good coaster-run (I built it just to see how it would look racing through the canyon) but I didn't have any vision for the theme of the park, so I started working on Inspiration Park - and soon found myself spending all my time on it (I :heart: that park).

When Inspiration Park died last week, I opened this park back up to apply some theming - and in doing so, added the castle and about 45 seconds to the coaster (inside the castle). I'd say I've worked on the castle/coster for about 20 hours - and the rest of the park for about 20 more back in November, for a total of 40 hours. There are 2 other near-finished coasters in the park; "Wooden Stake" (Woody) and "Terrorgasm" (4D). I'll post screens of those other coasters soon.

@Klinn - Thanks for the comments regarding the architecture & lighting. I wish I could pick the colors on the lights. And wall sconces would be handy, too. Floating lamp-posts look kinda funny. I've found myself building balconies on some buildings just so I can light the upper floors and not have it look goofy :bulb:

@Belloman - Thanx :) The "Frightmare" font is called "Buffed". The title font is called "PostCrypt"

I heartily agree - actually, I wish we could pick both colour and intensity of lights. I was recently lighting the inside of a structure and wanted a light on a path right beside a wall (sort of a faux wall sconce :)) but the default intensity of the light source blew out the texture of the wall.

I also wish there was an extremely simple generic lamp - just a globe on a pole. In one area I needed something like that. Even the existing 'generic' lights were too ornate. I ended up using the Miner's Lamp just because it was the least intrusive.

01-08-2005, 05:01 PM
Wow - a great video and a great ride. Who cares what stats RCT3 gives it, I give it a large quantity of thumbs up! :) The loop around the large skull was a cool touch. Your castle is impressive enough from the outside, but the careful design that must have gone into it to integrate the coaster, well... <whew>

BTW, your title sequence was very good too - I've always had a soft spot for the Electric Light Parade music.

Took me a little while to D/L even the medium quality video - your site must be getting hammered by enthusiastic visitors. :)

Originally posted by TheSkipper

Actually, the coaster used to be shorter. My wife said that it needed another building in the canyon. Who am I to argue with her? She's only seen the back of my head for the past 2 months since RCT3 came out. :D So, I added all of the elements between the loop and the lifthill after the original ride was constructed :) Total ride length is 2:46, but a good 15-20 seconds of that is lifthill and brakes up to the launch.

Please stay in the white/gray area and do not build over the red border! I've updated the rules above to make that clearer.

(reposted from earlier thread) I actually started Frightmare and built the coaster in November - before I began work on Inspiration Park. It was a pretty good coaster-run (I built it just to see how it would look racing through the canyon) but I didn't have any vision for the theme of the park, so I started working on Inspiration Park - and soon found myself spending all my time on it (I :heart: that park).

When Inspiration Park died between patch #1 & #2, I opened Frightmare park back up to apply some theming - and in doing so, added the castle and about 45 seconds to the coaster (inside the castle). I'd say I've worked on the castle/coster for about 25 hours total. Add another 5-6 hours to create the video for Cryptkeeper.

Wooden Coaster Contest WINNER ANNOUNCED!

http://www.simbolism.com/rct3/fm/stake.jpg
Wooden Coaster Contest Winner! Milkdud's Wooden Stake before inclusion in Frightmare. Click to big it up

Congratulations MILKDUD on your winning coaster! $5 bucks is yours along with the inclusion of your Wooden Stake in Frightmare with a complete themeing treatment and video production! Expect to see the video completed by this weekend.

Along with having the highest excitment rating of all entries (8.20 before theming!) it was also the most fun to ride and proved to be the best use of the space provided! It kept its speed up through the duration of the ride and had the best "headchopper" I've seen in a long while.

What a great response to the Coaster Contest! And each one was a treat to ride! Thank you to Milkdud, Xe0, daBug, kalei, sniper1263 & BASSOFeeSH. While Milkdud takes the gold, there were some great rides submitted.

First Prize: MILKDUD for overall greatness
Second Prize: Xe0 for the best single drop
Third Prize: daBug for unrelenting speed

Honorable mentions:
Sniper1263 for a fantastic compact layout (I'd like to use this coaster in another park, with your permission)
kalei, for the best out-and-back
And the winner for the longest train (17 cars - and backwards to boot!) goes to BASSOFeeSH.

Judging was based on track creativity, use of the space, RCT3 ratings, and overall enjoyability by Simbolism and Mrs. Simbolism. All judgements are final :D

Thank you to all participants!!! Stay tuned to this thread for the themed Wooden Stake video - coming soon!

What was the rating before theming?

Also, whats happening with Terrorgasm? Ive been building heaps of really good multidimensional coasters myself and I cant wait to see what Terrorgasm is like.

You are all fantastic :heart:

I'm having tons of fun working on The Stake & construction is moving along...

The tower is nearing completion!
http://www.simbolism.com/rct3/fm/ws_tower.jpg

You might notice that I changed the color scheme of the stationhouse. I thought it looked too much like a dollhouse before. Personally, I think these colors are a tad bit spookier :weird:

Also, I want to thank circleVision for providing some inspiration on the tower. The Stake's tower wouldn't be the same if I hadn't seen your work on Sleeping Beauty's Castle. If you haven't checked out Adventure Kingdom, you're missing out on one of the best parks in this forum (http://www.ataricommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=441035).

There is still TONS to do! I've got a bunch of little projects spread out all around the coaster. Overall, I'd say things are about 1/2 done.

This thing is GIAGANTIC!

I think I'm going to enclose the lift hills next (there's 2 of them).

Thergothon: Terrorgasm is still in need of a major overhaul. It's WAY too fast to be enjoyed by anyone sane and the rotations are way off. I'd say an update on it is at least 3 weeks away. :(

Happy building to you!

Milkdud
01-25-2005, 07:17 AM
Sweet! I do like the new color scheme! ANd also I do see some circle vision in the tower (the slate mixed in). Gosh I can;t wait for the finished product and the movie!!!!!

@Milkdud - Thanks man - Nice avatar ;)

@satriales, @DarkSim, @Tmul - Thanks :) I appreciate the kind words and the time you spent to make them.

@Terimose and others talking about the ratings - I wish I could take credit for the mega-boost in excitement ratings. Milk's coaster went from 8.20 to 8.75 during theming. The boost to 9.7 was due to "low friction" being turned on. After riding it both ways, the low friction ride was pretty exciting, so I left it that way. I hope you don't mind Milk!

Here's two more screenies of progress on Milkdud's Wooden Stake:

http://www.simbolism.com/rct3/fm/ws_ts.jpg

http://www.simbolism.com/rct3/fm/ws_cemetery.jpg

I'm going to name this section of the park "Transylvania"

There's a new transport ride at Frightmare called "The Night Train". You can see it departing Transylvania Station above.

Can any Special FX Wizard help figure out how to get a foggy mist arcoss the cemetery?

@Milkdud - I was talking about the ugly one - YIPES!

DarkSim
01-27-2005, 07:26 AM
Yeah! Mist! I wanted to know how to get that - it would be perfect for my spooky park. Speaking of which, I think I'll start it now. I'll try and get some screens up when I've got it looking how I can picture it in my head.

Great work so far Simbolism - that big grey tomb with the pillars looks cool - I bet it's great with the coastercam :)

Milkdud
01-27-2005, 07:33 AM
:eek: WOW!!! That looks SO awesome!!!! So what's inside Transilvania Station?

Mulefisk
01-27-2005, 01:23 PM
If you want mist, there's a neat little trick I know of. Go to Ride events, and select the volcano. Hold down shift and lower it underground until you can't see it anymore. Place it and wait for a few secconds. The smoke from the volcano will be appear above ground! This trick can be used to creat things such as hot springs, or just to add a creepy feeling to your rides.

Hope this helps!

Simbolism
01-27-2005, 01:42 PM
Thanks :)

@Milkdud - Transylvania Station contains a bit of Wooden Stake, A "Night Train" station (you can see the train in the pic above), an info booth, a soda machine, a small restroom, and an ATM machine.

@Mulefisk - I'll need to test that out - thanks for the idea!

I've gotta agree with you Griff. That's why I joined the contest, because it would be such an honor to have simbolism theme my ride if I won and I did and so I knew my coaster was in the right hands :D :up: :up: :up: :up: :up:

The only downside is that it moves too fast... wish I could slow it down a ton - so it looks like its just hanging there... slowly drifting,

I've been following "Frightmare" for weeks now. You're doing a GREAT job. Can't wait for the next update!

I have a few tricks that I'm working on now using the APE. Fog/Mist is definately in the list. So are ghosts/ wandering souls and smallfires/bonfires. (Yah.... the Spooky theme is a favorite of mine, to!)

Terraforming is nearing completion
http://www.simbolism.com/rct3/fm/ws_mount.jpg

@fromthestart: Thanks for the compliment :D The best thing I can recommend is to think in terms of "scenes" . Lifthill scene, graveyard scene, station scene, exterior scene, etc. Study architecture books to get inspiration for your srtuctures. Try to convey a certain mood with your landscaping, buildings and scenery... And get to love your shift key :P

@Phantom: Thanks :heart: You're nearly as obsessed as I am! I'm flattered you guys are using my screenie as your desktop! <blush>

@TheButcher: Thanks - I'll check on that link

I agree YNH. The haunted house doesn't fit in with the rest of the architecture. That last screenie I posted was a "helicopter shot"

I've taken precautions to ensure that peeps don't see the spooky house except while on the ride. The paths, landscaping and buildings all play a part in "hiding" The Stake's best "scenes"

Peeps will never see the creepy house from the park:

Also, I was playing with the advanced particle editor to make some slow moving mist, however, all I was able to make was fog that covered the bottom of the ground. it was pretty eerie in the APE, but then when it became a firework, it looked bad because it was too short but I think I know how to fix that problem. BUt my comoputer froze in the APE and when I restarted my computer something odd happened with the monitor's display and I can';t open RCT3 :(

02-08-2005, 05:33 AM
Finally finished that download.... *whew!* :weird:

The opening shots were great. Really showcases how much work you put into theming what peeps will see before the ride. I only noticed a few shots of the theming around the actual track. This is my only bit of constructive criticism on the vid. You can only see so much during an on-ride video, and it's difficult to concentrate on both the track layout itself, and what's going on outside the actual ride. I would have liked to see a few more shots that showed off the amazing theming that you are flying past on the ride too fast to appreciate.

I understand not wanting to show off too much of "what's in store" before the actual on-ride video. Perhaps a few 'closing shots' after the on-ride. I know how much work goes into the theming inside the ride area, and you've done a great job with it. Show it off a little more! :up:

The ride was fun, and disorienting... always a good thing! Theming was excellent. Video production was great.

Simbolism does it again! Great job! :up:

Bravo once again Simbolism.

The intro was spectacular. Your logo and Milkduds looked top notch. I loved the way you did the credits at the beginning.
The fonts that you use just blow me away. Where do you get them all?

The scenery was very nice. You and Milkdud finally made me like a wooden coaster. The ride is one I will take many time in the future.... I saved it to my hard drive ;)

At the end, was that increase in the light something like maybe the sun coming up? If so, my hat is off to you.

Oh... the guillotine at the beginning, wow what a mood setter.

Oh... Oh... the king chess piece in the grave yard was a smart way to work a cross into it.
I mean what is a grave yard without one, cross that is?

There is a lot more I could say but I will leave it to others. :up:

@Terimose: Yes indeedy - the day/night cycles are timed to one full circuit of The Stake. Did it by accident, but liked how it turned out :)

Congratulations Milkdud on an impressive coaster design! Very intricate and well-paced. Catching glimpses of other sections of the track built up the anticipation, wondering how it was all going to fit together. :up:

And the theming, landscaping and building... :eek: wow, you keep pushing to new heights, Simbolism. I played the clip a number of times, hitting pause in several places to enjoy the view. I wish that skull with the cool red smoke was about 4 or 5 notches lower so I could have enjoyed lookign at it for a longer period of time as the coaster heads towards it.

Definitely my favorite ride video done so far!

Edit: Dang, forgot to mention how nice the intro credits were. That spooky graveyard with mist effects really turned out superbly!

Wow, it is a dream,
good thing, i've found some advanced RCT users on this forum then,
i really love the fog effect and milkdud's wooden coaster, it is a long trip around, love everything but not much same compare to first one, cryptkeeper because crypt have more scenery around than wooden stake, but it is fun ride esp with firework effects around.

Hope u will able to do on 3rd coaster. :)

You are one of the best park makers of this forum, well done. With your parks you make people, like me, to continue doing better and better our park, you are the one that inspires us. Well done.
A question: Which movie editor you use?, because its a fabolus editing.

I use Sony Vegas (http://mediasoftware.sonypictures.com/Products/ShowProduct.asp?PID=914&keycode=3138-3000) for the video editing.

Thanks again for the fantastic feedback. It makes me giddy :D <Blush>

VERY AWESOME VIDEO!!! Great coaster Milkdud!!! I would've posted this sooner, as in yesterday, but I was having forum problems (e-mail- typed in the wrong one and it got mad, but it is fixed now:)).

I can't imagine what you will... oops said too much.

Great coaster Milkdud, and Top-notch theming as usual Simbolism!

Put a smile on!:D

Simbolism does it again! Another brilliant job themeing a ride that isn't even yours. I would think it's difficult, but he takes us to new heights. From the rumors I hear around the mill, the next production from Simbolism will hit close to home and be even better than his first. Keep up your excellent work!

I'm excited!!!!!! This park is coming along so great!

>>>BUT<<<, I hope it's gonna be more than just a few videos....

I don't care if it's a full blown "scenario" or not, I just can't wait to try your parks out on my own computer!!!! While a scenario would be great, I hope you'll share the parks with us once you're happy with them!!!


Keep up the GREAT work!!!!! to Sim and his incredible theming/park design, as well as his "elves"!!!!

I know it's redundant, but now you "owe" me an update!!! (LOL)
Keep up the great work, everyone!!!!

By The Way....... (sorry for the double post).....

I did a search and looked back a few months.....
I got a real kick out of it when I recognised some of your earlier designs, and put them all together with your current stuff....

You've been having a ball with RCT3!!!! (How's that for an understatement?!?!?) :D

You're earlier designs were VERY good, but you can definately see the difference between then and now!!!!

Keep up the good work!!!!!! :up: :up: :up: :up: :up:


When all else fails, follow the yellow brick road....:bulb:

Hi gang,

Long time, no post!

As it appears that I don't have the same copious amounts of free time that I had back in 2005 when I was making Frightmare, I have decided to put up the .DAT file of the park in its unfinished state. By downloading the file, you can check out all of the little details that didn't translate well in the screenshots and videos.

So... go ahead and download and have fun. You can download the file HERE (http://simbolism.com/rct3/fm/frightmare.zip).

Happy downloading and hope all is well with you, my long lost community.

Wow. It's an honor to talk to you, Simbolism. Your name is just what you are. A symbol to all of us of a supreme user of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. Without your parks, many of us would lack inspiration for our parks. I'm not sure what else to say besides... thank you.
