Hello everyone,
Well I didn't quite get the results from my last park. Way too big. So I've made a smaller park. Much smaller. This way I can concentrate more on quality rather than quantity. Oak Meadows was quite lagalicious. I did get a movie out of it so it will always be remembered as my very first park. Thunder Valley will be quite different. Much more landscaping as I go. So without further ado I give you "Thunder Valley".
And on the first day the mountains were raised.
http://img207.echo.cx/img207/2114/shot01306so.jpg
And it was good.
And so on the second day the waters poured fourth and washed the dirt away to reveal rugged mountains and lush valleys.
http://img207.echo.cx/img207/9862/shot01344oz.jpg
And it too was good.
And on the third day the way was known.
http://img207.echo.cx/img207/9862/shot01393nc.jpg
And it was good as well.

On the fourth day of creation my true...oops wrong song.
And so on the fourth day was created a beginning so everyone would start equally.
http://img83.echo.cx/img83/3047/shot01463xd.jpg
And so dawned the fifth day.

Hmmm. I like your way of portraying the making of this park. I'm curious to see how it goes along.

Question though,

Do the peeps walk over those boardwalks? When I try that they just go through them. Also, and this is just me, I don't know how people get lights off the path like on your picture they appear to be on the boardwalk. I can't make that work is there another mod that I haven't seen yet or am I just not paying attention?

Anyhow I like what you did with the entrance.

rickywsf
05-15-2005, 01:03 PM
To tell you the truth Kidfox I haven't opened the park just yet so I hope they walk up onto the porch. As for the lights I used the Landscaping lights and then the shift button to lift them up onto the porch(hold shift and move the mouse away from you). I was just going into the game to work a little more so I'll check on the porch thing as well.

KiDFoX
05-15-2005, 02:12 PM
All this time I never noticed the landscaping lights! I see it now, thanks!

rickywsf
05-15-2005, 02:23 PM
So kidfox I opened my park and no one went in. They went as far as the path but not onto the porch. I tried to put path under the porch to no avail. So I made some adjustments. I'll post tonight when I get home from work. Thanks for the info.

Nice terraforming work on this new park of yours rickywsf.

And of course the peeps don't walk on scenery. It's a shame, they should be able to in certain cases. But you'll have to try and make that using only paths.

Can't wait to see what you do with this! :up: :)

KiDFoX
05-15-2005, 02:44 PM
What works for me is to use the dirt path and raise it to the level of your boardwalk. It makes a wood walkway that even though the boards are diagonal it still looks good with the scenery. You can use the 1/4 wall around the raised path to make it look similar to what you have now.

I really like the entrance so it would be cool if you could keep everything else the same.

And so on the fifth day the "Wheel of Life" was created up high for those who will feel as if they were going nowhere in life but a circle. And there are many of those guests in the realm. And they were given the first fan to cool off their tempers.
http://img125.echo.cx/img125/319/shot01510ei.jpg
And I made them close to me so I could keep an eye on them.
And all looked well.
http://img125.echo.cx/img125/778/shot01531py.jpg
And they were given trees and a resting place on their endless journey.
http://img125.echo.cx/img125/8376/shot01543vm.jpg
And they were given more trees and water to quench their thirst, and light so they could see they were going nowhere.

On the sixth day there was food for the masses and a place to ponder life's questions while eating.
http://img174.echo.cx/img174/9359/shot01581pp.jpg
And there was more fresh water. This to be shared with the local wildlife.
http://img174.echo.cx/img174/2238/shot01598aw.jpg
And there became shelter to protect from the environment.
http://img174.echo.cx/img174/2473/shot01603ar.jpg
And therein was served mechanically pulled buffalo. And of course chicken because it is said that buffalo tastes like...well chicken.
http://img174.echo.cx/img174/3879/shot01616xr.jpg
And all was peaceful for awhile.
http://img174.echo.cx/img174/2387/shot01629pp.jpg
And the buffalo frollicked because they were not on the "Wheel of Life"........

And so the Seventh day had arrived and there was yet much to be done. But because this is the seventh day we will rest in this simple glade that was provided before moving on.
http://img149.echo.cx/img149/9864/shot01655ti.jpg
And because the land was becoming populated there was revealed a better way of moving about. And it too was made to travel through the realm in which I abide.
http://img149.echo.cx/img149/1673/shot01668dq.jpg
And where there is a start there must be an end. But not THE end.
http://img149.echo.cx/img149/6319/shot01683rw.jpg
And there was a loading zone to make ones travels more comfortable. And along with the loading zone came into being a place to p*ss and moan for those that were inevitably unhappy. Oh yeah and as you can see from the 2nd and 3rd shots down Sting was hired to perform in the loading dock! LOL!

And as time marches on, for this is the eighth day, the number of discontented people grows. And they will not ascend in the after life to live forevermore with me upon the mountains. Thus a portal to the nether regions was created to take these poor souls away from perfection. And it was guarded by the Gate Keepers so that the souls could not come back.
http://img268.echo.cx/img268/7250/shot01774wr.jpg
And it had an enclosed waiting area so the good people could not see the suffering.
http://img268.echo.cx/img268/82/shot01781eq.jpg
And it was large because sin breeds sin and many people were weak to sin.
http://img268.echo.cx/img268/9296/shot01791ik.jpg
And it was given large windows so that the sinners could see what they were leaving behind.

And during that eighth day the town grew and thrived.
http://img268.echo.cx/img268/5144/shot01843yn.jpg
And the wisest of all, The Judgement Maker, Resides in the town square to pass fair judgement to all.
http://img268.echo.cx/img268/2948/shot01860uo.jpg
And the people passing through to the Nether Lands.... no that doesn't quite sound right...Nether World Wailed when their eyes viewed the tortures that awaited them.

And so the ninth day was a day of rest from creation. And on this day nothing was done (but a home video).
http://uploadhut.com/view.php/115525.wmv
or http://rapidshare.de/files/1860903/Thunder_Valley_Entrance_0002.wmv.html
And it came to my attention that as the light faded into night a tiny fragment of the sun was attached to my creation finger. And my home movie became fudged. (Sorry everyone, forgot to hit shift L). And so it will be done again on another day as well. And with the making of this that I call "History of the World pt.I" heavenly music was introduced to the world.

And on day ten because the people of the realm needed somewhere to lay their little heads I created the "Bonanza Hotel". And it was a hotel because there yet needed a profit to be made.

http://img241.echo.cx/img241/2070/shot01955ux.jpg

Actually there is a way...but it invovles...MURDER *creepy organ music*

HEHE....sorry but, seriously there is a way, I've done it :D

Just simply pull the land down like...9 sections, then put in the deck where you want the peeps to walk, add the path over the hole and pull the land back up until the deck is flush with the parthway....end result ;

Yes ebitusa they are jpeg. But they are 1024x768. And there are a lot for one page. How do you get the pic smaller? What is the screenshot tag? And how do I use it?

Tom65789
05-30-2005, 06:02 AM
well you can get a file converter by searching bmp to jpg in google and a file compressor or you can use the screenshot tag to make them all smaller like you did in your last shot

-[A.S] Fanie-
05-30-2005, 01:10 PM
1) type [ screenshot ]


2) paste the link to your picture


3) type [ /screenshot ]

No sapces betwee "[" and "screenshot"

Wow. Thanks for sharing your park!!! I love the pics and captions. You've got some very nice buildings and scenery going on. Insides look great too. Even the land colorations work well.
Not much else to say. Looks great!
Hmmm...Try maybe raising some land up around the water ride, and maybe some more trees and bushes around rides. (makes peeps feel like your going faster)
Well, that's all.

Your park is looking great. If I can just give one little piece of advice. Maybe use the other photo spot. It is smaller and not as obtrusive as the Microsoft Photo Spot one. Great Job!

rickywsf
07-16-2005, 03:50 AM
About the photo spot. I wasn't sure if they take the pic right in front of it or not so I put in this one although I will probably change it to the smaller one, this one is too intrusive. Anyway I have a few more pics of "Sidewinder" for everyone.

A few more pictures for your (hopefully) viewing enjoyment. This first shot is over the rooftops of "House on Haunted Hill" looking towards "Thunder Valley Falls".

This was taken while in a helicopter above the Western side of the park. "Sidewinder is in the background.

Of course I got sick when the chopper zoomed right up above the clouds so I could take a "MAP" shot of the park.

Your park is still looking awesome. I don't know if it is just me but the colors on the rapids ride seem a little out of place. Maybe try some other ones. If you want...I love the park though!!!

Thanks for the compliment and advice Disney. It's the whole colorblind thing again. I'll try a different combo. So I went to work on the Western side of the park again and came up with this.

Awesome park, I'm very impressed by the scenery and the way you build your tracked rides along the terrain, looks fantastic.

Everyone on this board has managed to inspire me to build a park. Every day I see a new screenshot of something I want to do in mine.

Gorgeous (and by the way - I did like the captions)

Thanks Kyeaton! I always seem to make my coasters conform to the terrain somehow. It seems more realistic to me. I've slowed down work on Thunder Valley while I think up something for the last quarter of the park. Maybe I'll rework the whole caption thing. As well I'm starting a new park everyone. It's called for corners and is going to be a city type place. Sort of like Las Vegas with hotels/resorts along an intersection with each hotel/resort having it's own theming and rides.(Ala New York New York, Aladin, Circus Circus, etc.) I hope this sparks interest. (And nobody steals the idea! lol) That's it and thanks again!

Here are a few night shots of Thunder Valley. This first is of the Western section that I was working on. This part is now done I think.

This is a cool shot of "Bonanza" shooting through a turn.

And this last is of "Sidewinder" and it's lookout area.

I have time for the next two days to try and finish the park and hopefully get some video going but I might spit my time between Thunder Valley and Four Corners. Enjoy!

Ok I'm stalling now because I'm trying to figure out the last 1/4 of the park. So here are a few more pics. I added more buildings to Town Center.

Hi Everyone,
I'm back! I lost my internet connection for almost a whole month. I was surprised I found my post. It was the last one on page 15, just before the cutoff. Anyway I'm back and going to be continuing on with Thunder Valley and I've also made a lot of headway on Four Corners.
Four corners is going to take a very long time to make as I made it as a scenario and I have to research nearly everything. I'm a sucker for punishment I guess. But I do have roughly 16 Hotels at the moment and 4 shopping malls. I'm using 4 different themes as per the name Four Corners. The 16 motels will gradually buy more land or buy out their neighbor. Whichever seems fit for the moment. They will even buy out and incorporate the malls into their own design. All the while adding amusements to keeps their guests happy. The end result should be 4 hotels with shopping, rides, hotel buildings and landscaping. The 4 themes that I am using are: Carribean Pirate w/Tropical, Space, Atlantis w/Tropical, and Sultan w/Tropical. Generic buildings will be used with all themes.
Sounds fun huh? What it looks like right now is a post-apocalyptic city in ruins. Hahaha!!!
Watch for it I should start posting pics in its own thread.

well lit and well designed. Realistic and the night shots look great.

Only problem is i've had a little side project that i was planning on calling Thunder Lake, but i'll think of a new name. Don't worry.
