This was my first ever project in RCT3. Before Soaked! Before ANY custom scenery. Back in the day...

Overview of whole island

Mind you... this is not an exact replica, I looked at pictures for inspiration and gave a few of the buildings my own twist. The dock house is almost exact however.;)

Cool concept - great Clint movie too! Can't wait to see the final on this - the Island shot looks sweet.

Thats pretty much everything...
The movie is postponed a couple days because I just got ahold of Vegas and I have to make it a kickin' movie, so i have to transfer everything I have from Movie Maker to Vegas... should be fun... but worth it!!!

03-19-2005, 06:51 AM
im greatly looking forward to the video! your cell blocks are so cool, and I love the way that you put the cages right on top of the cues! very spooky! :) can't wait to see the kickin' video ;)

03-21-2005, 09:29 AM
Thanks for the support so far. Just to let you all know... the video is in post production and will be out by the end of the week... *fingers crossed* ;)

03-27-2005, 11:37 AM
Just dropped in to check on things... I really love that first pic with the sunset.... And I LIKE that water tower!!!! great idea :D
I can't wait til Tuesday rolls around. I'd LOVE to ride this one!!

Great vid East! I especially loved the breaking out of prison effect :D. I also liked how you added the security guards walking around inside the jail.
My only negative comment would be that there were too many overbanked turns on the coaster.

But again, great video. Very effective editing :up:

03-30-2005, 03:16 AM
AWESOME!!!! (sorry; no.... I haven't seen the vid yet... DLing now. Just happy it's ready!!!!) I can't wait to check it out... I'll post again when I do.

EDIT: BTW, I STILL really love how you used the pawn for the church bell!!! (and the temple walls for cell bars, to!!! AWESOME!!!)

03-30-2005, 10:15 AM
Thanks for the feedback so far, I was really trying to harness the "essence" of Alcatraz in the video... hopefully I did a good job.


And for Phantom... here are 2 more pics showcasing the belltower

Good vid!! Like the concept and music. I really don't like rapidshare anymore. It took me 12 minutes to download that. Im on cable. The past week it has taken me over 5 minutes for a 10 MB video. Good video though!

03-30-2005, 12:02 PM
coasterdude89... I usually use uploadhut but im on dialup and rapidshare just worked better uploading this time, sorry about that... at least you have cable (jealous :cry: )

03-31-2005, 03:29 PM
i was wondering how you were going to do the cell block, but it came out great, good job

04-02-2005, 12:07 AM
I recieved a private message about downloading this... just to let you know... if you use a download accelerator... it may not work on rapid share, try disableing it and try again.

How do you build an island with water surrounding it. When I try to do it, the water won't appear because it has nothing to grab onto.

04-03-2005, 02:03 PM
To form an island... leave the area where you want to build alone and lower all of the land around it. That's it... its that simple!

I've had a few people asking for the park file to play around in. I'll be posting it soon. I just have to tweak a few things before it's ready.

03-10-2006, 12:46 PM
hey can u repost the video cos when i tryed to download it it said file has been deleted in-activity timeout or something :'( great park though!

Moving this to parks now that there are current replies...

03-11-2006, 08:40 PM
I was kinda shocked, there hasn't been any posts on this for almost a year.

03-11-2006, 09:25 PM
Its an amazing vid :D. I really liked the coaster. Cool ava BTW

03-11-2006, 10:49 PM
I've been to Alcatraz, and those pics are pretty accurate. Also, no posts for more than a year? Are you done yet?

03-13-2006, 10:21 AM
I've been done with it since almost a year ago. I cant release the park file though since the computer I did it on had a crash and I lost the file. Its not a whole park, Its just a heavily themed ride.

03-13-2006, 11:20 AM
Reminds me of the time that I lived in Alameda; but I have a question. Where is Dirty Harry? He needs to be in there somewhere. :D

03-15-2006, 01:27 AM
I'm glad to see that people still like this that I did so long ago before all of the custome scenery. This was even before Soaked! was released. I'm on the verge of releasing some pics and a video for the new park that I'm working on. The new one, unlike this one, will be a full park, not just one themed ride. Its really encouraging to see that people are still wanting to see more of my ideas after so long.

03-15-2006, 10:57 AM
One problem with downloading from bitterjuweler:( it links to tycoon3d.com and that site doesn't exist anymore:(

03-15-2006, 06:08 PM
I'll see what I can do about getting the video up and running again on rapidshare.

03-17-2006, 12:26 AM
woah............this is old...................lol. Great vid nonetheless! Maybe you should try to revamp it with the custom scenery available.........you know, to blow away our minds!

03-17-2006, 08:44 AM
Sorry... I'm too busy with my next project right now to even think about remaking this. Maybe in the future, possibly. But as of right now... I doubt it.
