yeah, use image shack and than you can still set up thumbnails in the thread to lead to enlarged pics.

a while i ago i tried to recreate californing screaming but just coulding do it accurately because of the restrictions when you are sending a track diagonally as opposed to north south or east west, how did you fix that.

nickobob
03-30-2005, 11:55 PM
California Screaming was weird. The launch is actually diagonal on the real ride so i needed to somehow make it straight by wrapping it around. I built it on a different map and moved it into this one. I'm thinking of remaking it because the station and launch aren't lined up well to where i'm satisfied. I'll post some picks of what i'm talking about, I didn't really want to show how shabby a job i did on the station but i will anyway because it was worth it to make the track real.
If you can understand what i'm saying i hope i ansewered your question.

sub780lime
03-31-2005, 03:21 PM
i definately understand what you are talking about because i had the same problem when trying to make mine, its really tough, i had the same problem when trying to recreate silver bullet at Knotts Berry Farm, you just cant do what you need on the diagonal which is just necessary

nickobob
03-31-2005, 10:00 PM
Here are a few picks of screaming,

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y56/nickobob/Shot0096.bmp
This is just a overview

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y56/nickobob/Shot0106.bmp
Now this one prooves how i did screaming. See how the station isn't at all detailed like everything else and instead of going straight and out the track circles around. Also see how close the supports and coaster are to the small sidewalk, this is probably the only inaccurate thing in the park.

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y56/nickobob/Shot0108.bmp
This shows after the launch how instead of going straight down like the real one does it goes left and down to make it so the track fits with the rest, my way of compensating for the diagonal launch. plus all the other stuff.

Thanks for the positive comments so far. And remember if you want to see any pic i can probably get it.

Thanks

Try photobucket.com. They are a good source and will automatically resize images if they are too big. :)

Do you have a link to the pics at imageshack? Looks great so far. Tower needs a just a little work!:D

sub780lime
04-04-2005, 04:37 PM
what i would do is register at imageshack, just requires an email address, resize your images in paint by about 35 percent, save them. with image shack once your registered you'll have an image panel (remember to add the site to your favorites once you register) in the image panel, it will show any images you uploaded, including links, one link is a labeled thumbnail link for forums, put that in your post and you will have a thumbnail that will lead to imageshack for a full size image.

When do u think the park will be ready for download!?

nickobob
09-21-2005, 10:35 PM
I'm so sorry for letting this thread go and finally looking at it to see a response that i missed. My ansewer is i would make it available for download if i knew how.
As for the park itself i havent worked on it much in the last 5 months. I'll probably go back and redo most of it if i'm going to be able to make it downloadable. That way it'll be perfect.
I also revived this thread because some people didn't get a chance to see my park and since people like Disney Parks this one can go along with em.
I'll get new pictures out soon of updated parts to the park.
Thanks for your patience

Nickobob

Also i'm pretty mad because i can't change the name from updated so long ago.

I might just have to redo all the pictures by just copying em and pasting em. I'd not delete this one because of all the good comments but then i won't have that old name on there

Nice park! Only thing I'm sorta not sure about is the scenery. Screamin could use some custom scenery for the Mickey Mouse face and the sort of blue walls covering some of the ride should be smoother. If you could find someone who would dedicate the time to make some of the scenery, that'd be great. Some other ideas for custom scenery is the backdrop picture in Hollywood Pictures Backlot, more scenery for Soarin, Disney Animation props, etc. Otherwise this park looks real cool!

i'm sorry to say this, but this is a really innaccurate recreation. Its just lacking detail and the stuff that makes it a recreation. you can probably make this alot better if you just started over and reapllied yourself.

What he said

If you really want this to be accurate you should do a little more research


Only trying to help.

RCTTalk
01-23-2006, 05:42 PM
:up: Well, I commend the maker for attempting California Adventure. First off, I believe it's a much harder park to re-create than Disneyland. There are so many custom sceneries for Disneyland but you tried to work with what the game gave you and it looks idenifiable. I really love the peak of your Grizzly Mountain, looks very accurate.

greenlink009
01-23-2006, 07:14 PM
Yeah. I do thank the dude for recreating DCA. BUT!! If any of you people visiting this forum would help out by making a lot of custom scenery it'd be great. AennilQ made some great points. The rides are OK but they could be EXCELLENT if you were to have all of the scenery needed to bring out the sort of magical atmosphere Disney has in all of its parks.

aennilQ

well, there are alot of ways that he can improve on what he has done, by using the custom scenery available. For instance, lets take the last drop of grizzly. First, he should make it proportionate to the ride. Second, he should get the track layout right. -only 1 turn. He should then sink the rapids down into the ground, to the lip. Line the edges with marnetmar's rocks, and various bushes and trees. Make a small body of water as close to the inside of the turn as pssible.- Hard to do with rct3, i know. The put the sinking ship/ whale entrance to a pool complex slightly below ground. They will shoot up water. Finally, place scenery items around. There you go. A few simple steps make this 100x better.

DBFan117
01-25-2006, 05:11 PM
I thought about building a DCA but then I stopped because I didn't want to do multiple projects at once. Here is how my Soarin building looked. It was far from done and needed more scenery but it is just to give you an idea of the what you can do with no custom scenery.

Wow. Pretty accurate. But would have the Disney feeling if it had more scenery (especially custom). Man. I hope I'm not annoying anyone by repeating myself a lot.

Wow
I checked this and for some reason it had about 20 new posts. Ya i made this park before soaked came out. So i had very limited stuff, and still do. I don't believe in using custom scenery, theres always a way around doing stuff in the game anyway. I'll post later on this and maybe start the park back up. I could easily make it better, or make it downloadable so anyone who feels like fixing it can.

Nickobob

That's like saying you don't believe in modern medicine and would prefer medieval techniques of herbs and bloodletting.

Truly the spirit of DCA there. That must have been what Barry Braverman said about the park (without the downloadable part).

Theres another saying. It's a video game that can apply to this in some ways. its "Cheat codes are for video gamers who don't want to play the real video game". Probably the same with custom scenery. It does come in handy sometimes though.

Thanks K_peek,
Ya, i just dont like to hack games, i've tried it before for other games and it doesn't work to well for me. I prefer to just manipulate the game however i can. You can basically do anything with it, including dark scenery without custom, i can tell you how if youd like. So, what should i do. Make it downloadable or start on it again?

Thanks

You really need to use custom scenery if you want this recreation to look accurate. Atleast get marnmetmar's leftoverz for the rapids.
