View Full Version : Ride Photo

06-29-2005, 02:25 PM
I have checked many places on the web and I cannot figure how to access the photos that were taken on the ride with the photo section.

I see the flash of the camera but how do the peeps "purchase" these shots after the ride?

None of the stalls have an option to sell pictures et al.

Sadly nothing to access, as they don't "exist" Only photo's taken at photo spots will appear in your image folder.

However, you CAN "fake it" with the souvenir shop. Place it along exit pathby gates, where path joins the park path put up a do not enter sign. Name the shop "ridename" photo's. change the postcards to "ride pictures" and go to town. The will buy them.

Thanks for the advice, good idea.

However, is there a way I can "snap" a still shot of my peep on the ride. Like they show on a real ride. Just thought it could be used in a different way. Like I have some neat shots of my peep behind different events in the park, but not on the rides.

Anyway, like your idea about changing postcards to photos, I am going to use it for sure.

If you design custom peeps, their on-ride photos will show up in your My Pictures, RCT folder as long as you have the right checkbox checked in the options menu.

about this, I have a little problem. I made a roller soaker with photo track. Only no photo's are taken and placed in my folder. And I mean photo's from my custom families. Does it work in your game?

07-01-2005, 07:52 PM
Same here, my custom peep is on the ride and the flash goes off and no picture. However I took Skippers idea and made a photo booth just off the exit of the ride and these peeps are buying them.

Thanks Skip, any more ideas keep me informed.

Now this might seem ridiculous but is there a way custom made mine rides can go into underground mode, without having to construct it over again in each scenario?

07-01-2005, 07:56 PM
yes, load it in and hold left shift and lower. however the intersections with the terrain have to be dead on and completely vertical for what the ride needs. Not an easy chore.

My understanding on photo's was that custom family photo's only go to folder when taken at photo spot's.

I'm sorry to ask one more question. Now I have an underground railroad of sorts. I can not get the peeps to the ride. The path goes to the face of the hill and won't go any further. What is the secret to building underground? I would like to make an underground mall.

The manual and tutorial are somewhat ambiguous.

07-02-2005, 05:14 PM
well, not by placing a photo spot. And that's what this topic is all about. pls don't go off topic. I suggest you play the tutorials and use search on the general discussion. there are alot of threads aobut tunnels there

I have actually had On-Ride Photos taken on every ride of mine with a camera when my family I MADE is on there. But you have to have the on-ride photo checked in the options for it to work.

so if they buy the photo from the souvenier shop, do i get to see it in the folder? i mean my RCT folder, in My Pictures folder, in My Documents Folder?... sheez am i pathetic or what?:p

07-08-2005, 01:01 PM
No, those you don't see, but the ones you do see peeps can't buy. So it's a trade off. You are only appearing to have on ride photo's

If you have photo spots, your peeps will take pictures there that will show up in your album. You can also click on your custom peeps to have them take on-the-spot pictures of the peep's family.

But I would highly recommend against setting the option to save all your custom peep's pictures if you have the one-of-a-kind peep program. :-P

i just stumbled into something, the way you could get a picture of other peeps aside from the custom peeps in photo spots is to wait in the photo spot view then when a peep poses to get their pics taken you save a pic of that spot, hey this might require a lot of timing, and i'm not sure whether the peeps would like their privacy invaded but, what the heck, i'm Lord in this game and they are my minions bwahahahahaha:haha:

I have did just that, got some "weirdos" doing things like some people would behind real life cameras. The AI is really ingenious.

It makes interesting story boards also.

Thanks Skip

There are options in the game settings to allow peep photos. Keep in mind that only your custom made peeps will have their pictures taken. The options allow for photo spot and on-ride. Keep in mind that when turned on, the pictures on ride will be taken every time the peep goes on the ride, not just once...

If the ride has more than one circuit, a picture will be taken for each time around. So if it goes around 3 times, you have 3 pics of every user-created peep for each time the ride is ridden.

Make sure you clean our your folder of all those excess, stupid photos. half of the photos don't show up, or are a bad shot. I just got ride of 48 photos.

Ya, I had quite a few pics with a balloon in front of the face or of my peep looking like she's sneezing or something. Pretty realistic, if you ask me since that's about how most of my park ride pics turn out.

I have had peeps holding their hand behind their partners head in a manner someone would do to like make "horns." I know the graphic image of the peeps hand is somewhat crude and undefined, but it easy to imagine what really is going on.

What was really funny was when the teen boy peeps were snickering about the belly dancers, you know pointing and covering their mouths.

Like I said before the AI of this game is very ingenious to say the least.
