I know some people were wanting some new trees for the game & here's a little preview of some "goodies" I'm working on. This won't be a huge theme, just a few new trees & some rocks & maybe a few other things, I'm not sure what all just yet.

Mart, i'm not sure if you've realised but RCT3 uses the criss cross method for trees. I'd love to know what performance you get using those trees, as they appear to be cyclinder trunk based.

I'm messing about atm with some trees, but of course we don't have transparent textures yet... so they look pretty fugly :P

I think you should just add these on to your Egypt pack. But, maybe it's just me.

Looks great tho!:D :) :up:

I know exactly how most of the trees are done in RCT3, they're simple panels, which is fine. Right now we can't use transparent textures & a few more 3d trees won't hurt the fps, unless people get carried away, which will cause a lag no matter what props you use. The ovl's for these should be about 75k per tree I believe, which is about like 2-3 pieces of some of the wall pieces in the game.


YNH-I'm not sure if I'll add these with the Egypt stuff or not, I have some odds & ends to put together sooner or later lol, they might just wind up in Egypt though, I haven't decided on it yet.

Great work but, before you do start these other packs you should finish what you have already started. I'm not trying to be rude, i'm just saying alot of people wat that egypt pack......... including me.

Just my opinion, looks very good though.

my only comment on the leaves you should make it with like jaged edges so it looks like there are different lenght of leaves.

No offense taken hag ;) Most of this stuff is old models I already had laying around & just needed to fix the textures & tweak them a little & get the size fixed, etc. The Egypt stuff is going along well, just not as fast as I know everyone would like lol
I wanted to do the leaves like that, but for every added "jag" it makes the model size grow & I want to keep these as small as possible & still look good. We have enough lag problems already, I don't want to add to it any.


RCTMaNiAc255 & stryker5 - Big Thanks to you & everyone else here for your continued support for this stuff.

CK the Fat
06-16-2005, 01:30 AM
3d trees would be great but... they wouldn't be "filling" enough to make a decent forest with. Not unless they had about 5,000 polygons or so. Perhaps these can be lone trees, like little thing planted in the plaza of an Egyptian city.

marnetmar
07-02-2005, 10:04 PM
The palm trees will be included in the Egypt theme I'm working on, but this little theme will have a few much needed items in it like the one below ;)

Brrriliant! Too bad the peeps won't use the tables as tables...

marnetmar
07-07-2005, 05:25 PM
A little update on the tables: I wanted to make the umbrella's recolorable for people, but for some reason the table & support for it & the umbrella pole are also changing color too. Actually though, the more I look at it the more I like the idea. What does everyone else think?

http://www.modstothemax.net/games/rct3/designersdatabase/marnetmar/temp/tables.jpg
Table Color Test

Yeah CK, it's too bad the peeps won't actually use them as tables.

Park Novice
07-07-2005, 05:28 PM
I think that the colouring of the tables is great as, most white tables will have some sort of colour reflection from the parasoles above just as yours do.

Looking forward to this download!

Milkdud
07-07-2005, 05:54 PM
Omg I love it! I want them now! :D

I like the way the colored tables look! And I love the marble looking tabletop! The only bad thing besides the peeps not being able to use them would be the people walking right through them! Hehe.

ytivarg
07-07-2005, 05:58 PM
I, too, really like the subtle coloring of the table to match the umbrella. As Park Novice said, when the sunlight comes thru those umbrellas, there would be some coloring to the table. Just think of it as a 'happy accident'.. cuz it looks fantastic.

My only question is, what is the 'peep clearance' around those corners? Are peeps going to be walking through the tables when they go to sit down? Could you also include a round tabletop?

Anyways... they look awesome!

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you like them.

ytivarg - I have to finish testing the square ones for the size, but the round one (pictured earlier in this thread) is basically done. The peeps seem to walk right through them at times regardless of the size. Kind of like they walk through each other lol
With no collision detection & since there's no other tables to try to have any "correct" settings to get peeps to use them, they're pretty much for looks, but hopefully that will be something we can fix in the future.

JCat
07-07-2005, 06:28 PM
As mentioned earlier Marnetmar, I love the fact that the table changes color along with the umbrella - it may not be what was intended, but the turn out is excellent!

I kinda figured this would happen, but it's really no big deal... the addition of the tables just for visual purposes far outweighs the peeps walking thru them.

07-07-2005, 08:30 PM
LOL.... I just made a request about this earlier today... Little did I know! :D

I really like the table tops matching the umbrella colors as well. It gets my vote :up:

Any chance you'd be releasing tables without parasols? They'd be really great for indoor restaurants...

I know that getting peeps to maneuver away from an object is possible. Just get a Top Spin, add the entrance in the back and watch how the peeps maneuver to the side so they don't bump into the Top Spin's supports. If you guys can figure out how that's achieved it would rock!

I'm making 2 each of the round & square tables, one set with & one set without the umbrella's & I'm going to see about making a picnic type table for people to have maybe the log type benches on each side. I think that might go well with the western type scenery.

I might be able to get the collision detection working for these, but I'm not sure of what all is needed for the flag settings. I'll give it a try before the release & see what happens.

Please no collision detection, we wouldn't be able to put it on the paths!

ytivarg
07-07-2005, 09:15 PM
Yeah, if colission detection is enabled, they wouldn't sit right on the paths...

Unless there is a vertical colission detection to be turned off, and a horizontal one to be turned on...

marnetmar
07-07-2005, 09:18 PM
I forgot about that, I was trying to keep the peeps from walking through them. Oh well that makes it easier anyway lol

KiDFoX
07-07-2005, 09:23 PM
Peeps walk through benches and each other anyhow so why not tables? I have video of peeps walking on water, in mid air, and through the ground after installing soaked.

So my point is if we have to put up with that sort of behavior which Frontier and Atari should have been able to prevent walking through a table is a small price to pay just to actually *have* tables.

After hearing some people talk about the color of the pool lounge chairs & umbrellas & not being able to change them, I got to thinking that I can fix that.

I doubt that we can get the peeps to actually use these yet, but hopefully we'll figure that part out before long.

Please remember - This texture is only for test purposes, it will be different when this is completed ;) The final texture will be made recolorable for these, so they will go with any setting.

Thanks for the comments, I'm a bit behind on everything, but this theme's going to be a small one & will hopefully done before too long. It's not going to be a lot of things.

Park Novice, I'll see about adding some towels to the lounge chairs.

DJ I used Milkshape to make the models.

marnetmar
07-24-2005, 11:15 PM
This looks better now than the polka dots from before lol I still have to make the other lounge chair & get the size fixed & get it in game, but you'll be able to change the colors of the red to match your surrounding waterslides, etc.

I've changed the name for this theme to Marnetmar's Leftoverz, since it's kind of a bunch of odds & ends. It should be done & released early this coming week. I have a few last minute items to fine tune & get all the icons made still. Here's a few pics of some of what's in the theme.

I love that bus even though I am not a fan of Six Flags it is sitll cool. The tables will add a lot, somethign that has been missing even if peeps won’t see them as tables it adds a lot for those of us looking at the parks. The signs will come in handy for people who like to do park recreations as well so nice job :)

I have started playing around with some 3D programs but with both jobs I don't have a lot of time and I am not making very fast progress it amazes me what the modders on here are coming up with and how useful it all is.

Hey Marnetmar good job there, just one question, does the 3D modeller you use utilise shading groups?

WalkingSnake
08-07-2005, 09:21 PM
Like I've told others, using pure black (such as on two of your signs above) is not a good idea in RCT3. Like the dark ride set, black won't show light shining on it, and it just looks odd as a sign color. :)

marnetmar
08-07-2005, 10:35 PM
Thanks for the reminder about the black WalkingSnake, I forgot all about that. I'll fix that shortly ;)

Here's something else that might come in useful for people, recolorable lounge chairs & umbrellas.

The peeps won't use them unfortunately, we don't have any flag settings to go by for these. But people can have different colored ones to go with the other scenery they have.

Sorry I missed this earlier danbo, I use Milkshape modeling program, it has shading groups available in it. You can try it free for 30 days from the link in my signature. After that you have to purchase & register it, but it's only $25.00 & well worth it.

Thanks


I'm not sure exactly what you mean Larry, but if you can post a pic I'll see what I can come up with.

Well, I'm looking for solid walls that can help form my bridge. There aren't any other solid walls that could follow the angle of the land, then Shift up to make the sides of the bride or the side walls. The arches are a huge help, but there aren't any that are one block high and two long. I'll have to ask Klinn about that.
Thanks!

marnetmar
08-16-2005, 05:26 PM
I'll see what I can figure out for this Larry, I'm pretty sure one of the flag settings will allow for a prop to align with the land. Does the texture make a big difference?

larry241
08-16-2005, 05:32 PM
Just the plain colorable walls in the red building colorable walls theme is fine. That way, you can make it look like concrete or stucco or painted.
I also sent a PM to Klinn about making arches.
I'm begging.
Thanks!

08-16-2005, 08:04 PM
hey larry, might i suggest trying what I do.

Just build the wall from as close to ground level as possible, then after it's built do a shift level down, and it will go underground and it looks like it's built right into the ground, and I guess it is.

larry241
08-16-2005, 08:11 PM
Not sure you understand what I'm looking for.
I want a solid 1/3 wall, like a fence, to angle with the land. There is not a current option to do so with solid walls. And all of the custom ones have collision turned off.
Second, the arch, if I sank it into the ground, is still circular. I'm hoping to get one that is more oval.
Hope that clarifies.
See ya!

Yoo hoo!!! Marnetmar. Where are you?

MUST HAVE TABLES AND UMBRELLAS!!!




Okay. Just thought I'd bug you. So how's progress going on this most anticipated pack?

marnetmar
08-20-2005, 12:08 PM
Sorry for the delay in updating the progress of this, so here's where I stand at the moment:

Things are mostly done on this, I still have a few props to complete & test:

more rock props, some which are offset so you can stack them more naturally instead of just one on top of another

Some flag props for the game similar to the ones on the Six Flags bus

The wall piece/pieces that Larry241 requested, I'm not sure how close I can get the textures to match the ones in the game, but we'll see how it goes

I think I'll add one of the re-colorable umbrella props by itself

That's all I have right now, unless I think of something else to add to this. I'm hoping to get this all done by next weekend (fingers crossed lol)

lol Thanks Larry, I'm not sure what's going to be in Wild! as far as Egyptian themeing, but in one of the pics posted yesterday (also below) there's camel's running around & 2 pyramid type props. I'm not sure if those are props or wall pieces to make pyramids.

I have one little request for you, if I may. I need some diamond shaped ornaments for the walls in Wonder World.


http://img364.imageshack.us/img364/6210/diamonds1on.jpg (http://imageshack.us)
I made these from Caffeen's letter set, but I'm not too happy with them. What I want are solid, colorable diamonds, one full wall height, no collison detection, 1/4 tile size, and maybe not as thick as a regular wall.

If you have time, it would be great. If not, well, there's no harm in asking.

Thanks, shyguy.

Shyguy, that shouldn't be hard to make, I'll see what I can do for that for you.

Robo, I'm hoping to release this late this coming week or over the coming weekend.

shyguy
08-21-2005, 02:21 PM
That would be WONDERful!!!! Many thanks!

One thing I didn't mention is that the diamonds shouldn't be a full 1/4 tile wide, in other words, they shouldn't touch each other when lined up side by side. And I need to be able to position them up and down at 1/3 wall height increments. (Though I think that's standard with all pieces, right?)

marnetmar
08-21-2005, 11:25 PM
I had forgotten about making this awhile back until I saw the Tower of Terror park in the exchange. I just need to add the texture & get it sized & it'll be ready to go with this pack also.

I believe that it was found that ticking flag 14 allows wall/fence to follow terrain slope...
...although I have not tested this personally

No Xophe, that's just 1 table, but I'm sure you could probably line up another to make it longer if needed.

Hey, marnetmar, is there any way you could include like a circular light that goes flat on the ground like in Animal Kingdom? I mean, just a small, quarter tile circle that looks like a light. And maybe a small cylinder one as well? :)

I'm not sure what you mean YNH, do you mean just a flat round panel that sits on the ground?

Would the cylinder one be laying across the ground or standing upright?

yeah, a flat round panel on the ground, but with a sort of glass texture with a thin black(or re-colorable) ring around it.


And the cylinder one would be standing up.


Thanks, I hope you can do these! :D The lights they gave us in the game are kinda weird....

I know, I just would like them to hide the lights we have now. Like, if you make these, then I'll put the lights below the ground and put your lamps above them so....well..you know what I mean. :rolleyes:

08-27-2005, 10:06 PM
Here's a question for those that'll be using the flags:

Would it be better for them to be regular 1/4 tile props or path edge props? Or does it even matter?

Your_Name_Here
08-27-2005, 10:08 PM
I think you should make them all different.

1. Center of a tile, so that you can place them atop generic roof spires.

2. Quarter tile.

3. At the edge,corner of a tile so that you can place them on the side of fences and such.

Unless it's too much trouble.

TheSkipper
08-27-2005, 10:09 PM
If they are "edge" type, but scenery, they could then be put on lift hills. If they are 1/4 tile type, then they can't. See what I mean?

marnetmar
08-27-2005, 10:12 PM
Sounds ok to me, I have them at 1/4 tile already & the full tile is just a change in the setting, I'll have to realign the model for the path ones, no biggie though. Thanks for the input :up:

08-27-2005, 10:30 PM
I have an idea about those pool chairs with the umbrellas...

Line them up so that they match the actual pool chairs u get in the game which the peeps lay on. Then you place the custom pool chairs over them, making it look like the peeps are actually laying on them.... If you know what I mean :down::noob:

08-28-2005, 01:54 AM
Circus Center NEEDS those flags. And, yes, they need to be in the center of the tile to place atop roof spires. How about a single pole length by itself that's stackable so we can make flags at different heights.

I'll have to make the cylinder one smaller, I was more worried if it was what you wanted or not. The other one isn't perfectly flat, it barely rises above the ground.

marnetmar this maybe leftovers but these so far look like some of the most useful scenery made for the game

I love the look of your flags and umbrellas etc.

One of the best is the large rocks well done.

The only problem with that six flag bus is it doesn't look like its made for rct3 but still probably when its being used it will look better.

Well done.

Cant wait for the release

Didn't see the walls until now. Thanks.
I appreciate the time and effort you put into all this stuff.
I am understanding and not pushy at all, so thanks again for working on it.
Can't wait to use!
By the way, I'm sure others would want similar, but with other textures. A whole wall pack would be cool.
But I'm NOT asking for it; just saying it would cool.
See ya!!!

larry241 - No problem, I'm thinking of probably releasing this as soon as I can get a couple of texture issues worked out & a couple of minor alignment problems fixed & then maybe either adding to it or making a part 2 of this theme. Right now it's closing in on almost 40 pcs.

I have some bad news for everyone:

Today my hard drive died on me & right now I'm in the process of getting everything reinstalled/updated on the new one. I know some of this stuff was lost, as I had it on the old drive & it's a total loss.

Once I can get everything back up & running properly, I'll be able to see what all was lost & start rebuilding again. I have to reinstall RCT3/Soaked & many other things, so this is going to take awhile to get it all together.

I'm very sorry about this to everyone, but this theme will become a reality as soon as possible, as will the Egypt stuff I was working on.
