Now thats a cool idea Tidus!

06-16-2005, 09:43 PM
:D Thanks!

06-16-2005, 09:45 PM
This sounds amazing already, Tidas! I'm a pinball fan, so I can't wait to see what you do with this - especially since you're a sculpting master (that lawnmower proved it). ;)

...and now back to my toothache.

06-16-2005, 09:47 PM
Oh, sorry for toothache, I wish they doesn't hurt when riding lawnmover..ehehe :D !

now will this be a rollercoaster, or some what of a themed area??

Sounds very cool

06-16-2005, 11:55 PM
AWESOME! Tidus, you always come up with the best ideas! :D :up: I definately can't wait to see how this turns out!:D :up:

06-17-2005, 12:27 AM
Pin Ball? I thought I was desprate when I made pirates lol

06-17-2005, 01:02 AM
sounds like... SPINBALL WHIZZER!:weird: :)

06-17-2005, 03:59 AM
This sounds like it'll be a very fun park to see Tidus :up: :up:

06-17-2005, 06:08 AM
Thanks Thrill Rider, KoasterKid23, k_peek_2000, vortexian & marnetmar!
This will be a park, not a coaster, not a sort of themed area but a huge mix of all, something never seen before...now I'm qorking hard to complete Vanguard very very soon, so I can put some pics about this hard project.......Ciao!

06-17-2005, 07:31 AM

Haha yeah great idea Tidus - a soundtrack provided by The Who, perhaps?

Spinball Whizzer is probably the funniest ride I've ever been on! I couldn't stop laughing the whole way round - it really feels like you're in a pinball machine!

06-17-2005, 09:21 AM
it is a great ride, i love the themeing and how its all compact :D

06-17-2005, 10:34 AM
This is going to be very cool!

06-17-2005, 10:53 AM
Thanks for your interest guys! I love Spinball Whizzer but this project hasn't nothing to do with this ride! I'll recreate a huge multi-floor pinball.......where people walks in....surroundend by tracks, lights & colour.....!

06-17-2005, 10:53 AM
Meh, Spinball Whizzer, in my Opinion, crappest ride at Alton Towers, waste of money, went on it, hated it. But, none the less, I've just finishes it in my Recreation in Soaked

06-17-2005, 10:57 AM
sounds like an interesting project. i am really looking forward to it. if it's as great as your other projects, it's gonna be amazing.;)

06-19-2005, 01:29 PM

keep up the reputation and the good work/spirit..


06-19-2005, 02:59 PM
Sweet! I love pinball.

The only problem is that the border is a bit jagged. Kinda weird.

Looking forward to see more of it! I like the plunger, too.

06-19-2005, 03:07 PM
Thanks YNH and maz...thanks for all..I'll remind your words....for the boarder...yeah, you're right. Is a bit jagged,but If I have raised all, now it would be very high...and unreal for a pinball table, so I've opted for this solution....
As always, suggestions are welcome!

06-19-2005, 03:27 PM
:GASP: That is amazing, Verry nice work. If you ever make a vid of that coaster, I'll be happy to hos it for you. Tidus I have every park you ever made on my pc I can't wait to see the finished version of this ride it amazing. Ony if you could sync fireworks to coasters man. How do you do this? This makes my parks look like a peice of trash.
Wow I love everything about what you make you put alot of time and effort into it. Wow cant wait until this is fully themed. Also I have a great idea for a video. Wow I love this you deserve every great comment that has been said. Your ideas are all great Crazysinki(If thats how it's spelled) gives me a laugh everytime. So everyone make way for tidus one of the greatest Rct3 players. It gives me great pleasure to enduct you into the Chickenselects3 Hall of fame.:D :mad: :sulk: :bored: :) :D

06-19-2005, 03:34 PM
Very great idea and work! That original!

06-19-2005, 03:46 PM
WOW! What a fabulous idea! Excellent- I would've never guessed that you were going to use a coaster for this- but WOW!

06-19-2005, 04:02 PM
that is really creative! cant wait till its done ... its gonna be awesome!

keep up this great work!!!

06-19-2005, 04:16 PM
Thanks Chickenselect willyfan2bibi Vodhin and soleil

-Chicken....I'm so happy that you like my works and have a laugh on Crazynski....imagine how many laughs I've made by myself constructing the park....I'm not a master recording videos with ASE...but for fireworks....I have an idea in my mind........for now reminds that one thing of ALL the pinball is missed......................the vertical section where points showed up........

-Vodhin...and this is only the beginning........!

06-19-2005, 04:26 PM
Looks wicked Cool!

06-19-2005, 04:33 PM
Man this is one park I can't wait to be finished!! I think this has to be the most creative idea I have ever seen on this game. 10/10 ida wise and will probably give the finished park the same score. off to rate the thread

06-19-2005, 06:31 PM
THis is gonna be so cool I can't wait

06-19-2005, 10:35 PM
Your are out of your mind. I own a pinball machine, and would have never thought of using it for a park, but it makes perfect since. Can't wait to see how twisted you can make the ball ramps. :)

06-20-2005, 11:41 AM
Thanks [a]WsOmE..., hillibilly, DisneyFREAK1178 & JASaxman_cm! Today I've started again the miltar service...I have a bit less time...but pics will come very soon!

06-20-2005, 02:05 PM
Absolutely fantastic!! Wonderful screen shots - and we're going to miss you not being around as much (good look in the Military Service).

06-20-2005, 02:25 PM
oh the Militar Service doesn't take me a lot of time....with this is the third recall that I have in Army...just 4 months.."working" in an office....and maybe playing RCT3......the summer is so hot.....and works are less.....:D

06-20-2005, 02:26 PM
Totally WICKED! lol hehe I wish there was a pinball themed coaster in real life. Now that! would be wicked. :D :D :D

06-21-2005, 07:27 AM
Nice coaster man :cool: :eek:

What options do ya need to change in the options txt file to make that transfer track? I forgot it :(

06-21-2005, 11:57 AM
Thanks guys! Another coaster will be presented later.....

T-rct you should add the "trackallowintersect line 1" but for many help find the "Options.txt" thread.

06-21-2005, 12:52 PM
WOW,awsome work Tidus.I would have never thought of =making my own pinball machine in RCT3!Neat idea. :bulb: :up: :)

06-21-2005, 07:15 PM
Thanks RCTMaNiAc255.
Guys today is time to present to you a giga coaster...Thunder Ball. I'm working on it from yesterday, and I have only completed the coaster with good result (excitement 8.56 nausea 4.30) and the station building. As you can see from pics, I have a lot of fun mixing many themes and I like the effect. Putting on terrain pieces from BLOX custom set I obtained a particular effect...peeps seems to be walking on a real pinball table...
I've also combined bob coaster track to recreate a pinball binary. Oh another thing, don't watch back the station.....in that zone I'll construct the core of each pinball...
But first, after add lights to the Thunder Ball station and start the back construction I need to create another part of Pinball......another coaster? maybe, or maybe not.....is name?
Iron Snake.

Ps....I've also created the buffer that each one use to control the balls direction, tomorrow I'll post some shot....bye!

06-21-2005, 07:21 PM
Holy crap - I love it!!!!!

06-22-2005, 03:26 AM
Nice work Tidus

06-22-2005, 04:11 AM
excellent tidus!

... how about some merry go rounds as some kind of bumpers?

06-22-2005, 06:43 AM
Sigh! I wish I had the inspiration that you have Tidus. Once again im impressed by what you've accomplished so far and can't wait to ride that pinball machine...

Good work indeed! :up: :up: :up: :up: :up:

06-22-2005, 12:22 PM
Thanks friends!!!! You are my strenght! Your words your interest, all!
Soleil, eheheh, merry-go-rounds are in my plains from the beginning...but I can't put them now, because I need to put first all the tracks, and it isn't so simple, for the less time at my disposition and for what I want to build...They are the last thing to put...I need to build Iron Snake first, and if it turns out as same as I have in my mind...it will be very funny!
Ciao e grazie ancora!:D

06-22-2005, 02:29 PM
Wow very nice work I would have never thought of making a park into a pinball game! The park is turning out to be very realistic considering that your making a pinball machine out of a bunch of roller coasters. By the way...are those tunnels fron Klinn's ElectroSet? I don't know because every time I open the set RCT crashes.

06-22-2005, 02:32 PM
Great work !

06-22-2005, 03:01 PM
:eek: This new project is fu****** awesome!:D

06-22-2005, 03:13 PM
Thanks guys!!!
for that tunnel, yes i used the Electro Set and BLOX set.
see ya...

06-22-2005, 03:33 PM
Looks Awesome Tidus!

06-22-2005, 04:47 PM
What an original idea! This is so cool. I would love to ride a coaster that is made to look like a pinball machine. Your work is awesome!

06-22-2005, 04:50 PM
Are you doing some sort of hacking in order to get the tracks on top of eachother like so?

06-22-2005, 04:50 PM
Electro and Blox, together, in harmony. Gotta love it!

Seriously, Tidas - I'm looking forward to the DL!

06-22-2005, 06:11 PM
Thanks tmul, disneyland255 and Pumper!

kennywood_man, for tracks I've added a line in the RCT3 Option.txt file.

06-23-2005, 07:28 PM
Hello friends, little update today...I have continued the buildings construction around Thunder Ball. Again massive use of Electro set and BLOX set! See the pics...and the Thunder Ball results...

You rock my friend! Those bumpers and the klinn dips - priceless!

06-23-2005, 07:42 PM
Thanks disneyland255 and Pumper...so they are called bumpers and not buffers, lol sorry...ok :p !

06-25-2005, 05:16 PM
Hello guys! I get Soaked! and I've completed also this park...is small but I think that you'll have fun it! Anyway I'm consciousness that this is not my best park ever, and I don't hide you that I have a bit of trouble building it..Initially I have planned to do some buildings on the rear of the table, but seeing how it turns I've noticed that other buildings creates a big chaos in this small map, and I don't like it...I put some thrill rides to recreate some pieces of each common pinball and I've covered all the table area with BLOX elements with a results that peeps walk on the table and paths are covered by BLOX set...
As always post your thoughts, now stay tuned for my next park....Isla de la Muerte.

Great job. You're very creative! What will you have in store for us next???

06-25-2005, 09:42 PM
amazing !

06-25-2005, 10:09 PM
Ahh you put the corkscrew coaster INSIDE the aqua blaster! What a cool effect! It's a good job you don't have a tilt coaster - too much tilting could set off the machine's alarm!

06-25-2005, 10:19 PM
are you going to make a video? that would be great. this is one of the most creative uses of RCT3 that ive seen yet.

06-25-2005, 10:24 PM
I just don't know how you do it. You are so creative. The way you think outside the box or should I say inside the box in this case is just amazing. The entire pinball layout is outstanding. In my wildest dreams it would never occur to me to build something like this.

I have ridden a pinball ride years ago in the now defunct Sid and Marty Croft Amusement Park that was located on the upper three floors of the now distroyed Omni building in Atlanta, Ga. Your ride is much better than theirs was. Heres hoping you never run out of creative ideas.:up: :D

06-26-2005, 04:01 AM
Thanks guys, I'm so happy that you like it!

- shyguy, my next park is "Isla de la muerte"...stay tuned for the thread I create it soon;

- sawyer...thanks!

- DarkSim, you're right...ehehe.....;

- dougbarkermrf...after all this months I don't know how to use the ASE, I have all the tutorials made by our friends, but never, the results as the same, I can make a video of the 3 coaster like The Ring 2 & Magic Carpet, but in comparison with the other vid parks....mine are so bad. Anyway who knows..:D ?

- Teirmose, thanks! I'm so jealous that in America you have a lot of Parks...here in Italy there are only 2 "real" park...the other are ridicolous...

06-26-2005, 04:04 AM
amazing again... a love your work how tyou always come up with the best things

good job


06-26-2005, 05:42 AM
I downloaded pinball....where do i save the file to...like when i download it, wher do i put it

06-26-2005, 05:49 AM
Thanks maz, sxflgshh14 unrar the file, get the .DAT file, cut & paste it in your Parks directory in ...\Documents\RCT3\Parks\ and have fun!

06-26-2005, 06:03 AM
how do i change it to a .dat file?

06-26-2005, 06:06 AM
The file you have downloaded is a compressed file with winrar.
Download this program and click on the unrar button, the .DAT file is IN the compressed file.

06-26-2005, 06:56 AM
there is a link that says pinball .rar......do i click on it or...

06-26-2005, 07:12 AM
If you don't have the program Winrar you can't uncompress the file!

06-26-2005, 07:37 AM

06-26-2005, 09:25 AM
As far as uncompressing the file winimp works great. Just type in the word on your favorite search engine, and the rest will fall into place.

The real reason I'm writing this is because the link for the park won't work. Does anybody know what the problem is?
Thanks in advance!

Tidus I think its great . Once again it is brilliant .

Snow :up: :up: :up: :up: :up:

06-26-2005, 12:42 PM
Atreyuu2003, the link works better I tried to download my park and it works fine...this time I uploaded it in Rapidshare 'cause alienhax yesterday gives me an error.

Thanks snowjones!!!

06-26-2005, 11:54 PM
Tidus - as usual, another unique keeper of a park. Amazing work the standard and custom scenery. The two coasters simply ruled - especially the launcher with the interesting track - amazing fun!

06-27-2005, 12:29 AM
I don't want to sound stupid here... :o
But, what are you doing with these coasters?

Tracks overlap each other, rollercoaster travel inside other rollercoasters, slides and coaster put together...

How are you doing this?

06-27-2005, 12:55 AM
Wow that is absolutly amazing. I doubted this at first. But BOY WAS I WRONG! You really pulled this off and it is incredable. I give this a 1000/100 IT RULES

06-27-2005, 01:07 AM
Thanks guys!

-Pumper...especially Thunder Ball takes a lot of time to do! I'm happy that you like it!

-Gibdo, I have modified the RCT3 options.txt to do this.....for more explanation check a thread named Options.txt.

- k_peek_2000......1000 is too much :D I think this isn't my best work...anyway.......thanks!!!


06-27-2005, 01:14 AM
hey, how do you get the tracks to like intercect into the ground and into each other. Its really neat!

06-27-2005, 01:15 AM
THe idea behind this park is fantastic, the bumpers for the pinball.:up: :up: :up: Thats great. The park although seems very cluttered. But it looks good, the idea is great, its coming along well. I will download this park. keep it up.

06-27-2005, 11:16 AM
- k_peek_2000 I have changed the Options.txt file in RCT3 adding some line codes...check the "Options.txt" thread to learn how to do it!

- kennywood_man, thanks for your words! lol every pinball is cluttered, I hope that I gave that feeling also in my park!

06-27-2005, 12:15 PM
I couldn't find a specific topic with that title, unless someone has renamed it.
This is the topic I think you're referring to.

k_peek, check this out. It sounds pretty neat. Something I might play around with later.
options.txt "cheats" (http://www.ina-community.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=453395&highlight=Options.txt)

Basically, the options.txt file has variable names with boolean values of 0 - false, and 1 - true. Just set the values accordingly, and you can get some strange design setups with your coasters and scenery. :)

Thanks for pointing this out Tidus. :)

06-27-2005, 12:50 PM
YEah! That link is the right link! I didn' remember the right link! Sorry! :rolleyes:
