Expanding on my "path tutorials, this zip file has the complete tutorial, with text on the images to make it EZ to save. Just go through the sequence.
Also included are some EARLY teasers of another park, "Greatland"
which includes a stone arch railroad bridge for the miniature railroad.

Thanks Skipper as always good job in helping us find new ways to create things for RCT3.

Wow...I'm impressed with both the stone arch bridge and especially the bridge with planters. And what a creative idea for the fencing by making unowned land. I never would have thought of that. Good stuff!

Thats very cool (of course it would take up too great a deal of space for the small park competition, but for a regular size park ;) )

It makes me wonder if Frontier and Atari might start considering along with the items they plan to release, a best of bonus, with buildings, scenarios, parks, and rides to cram on the CD (Afterall there is 700M of space) with Soaked. Certainly some of our hints and tips would be valuable as would some of the structures that our best designers (Skipper, you know who you are!) have come up with.

Coasterbuff, I wondered who would be first to figure out what was done to get the railings ON the path tiles. You win!

DW, thanx, I just practice, think and try.

You are the PathMaster. That railroad viaduct looks great too! I keep on wishing we could import different locomotives. ;)

I vaguely recall that one of the building sets has a piece which is half of an arch - the face of the arch, not the underside like the one you've shown. I wonder if that could be used to build arched bridges? Hmmm, need more hours in the day to experiment with RCT3...

Thanx, Platinum, be sure to see the other tutorials, too. Especially the bulding one .......... 16 megs.....

Great tutorial Skipper - have you got any for tips on making gorgeous hotels like the 'Lodge' in your new park? I find planning huge park focus points like this a huge headache ( but in the end rewarding ) when building big buildings such as this piece by piece.

Any tips would be most welcome...

Actually, digicub, The Lodge is my SMALLEST "mall" it's not a hotel at all and is a functiong food cout shops structure. Get the mall/building tutoria, and also check out what was done in galactica here: www.members.fortunecity.com/scourge/galactic1.htm

Wow Skipper, you certainly don't do things by halves do you? LOL, seriously some more tutorials on major structures - planning and building - would be great.

Love galactica by the way!

The building tutorial is pretty massive at 16 megs, can't get anymore major and thanx! Glad you liked Galactica! I tend to be "exteme" even knowing nothing...:D

Check out what's in Wild Kingdom and Greatland, then, too!
