I will do my best to keep an up to date list of all contributions. If you post somethign and I do not get it on the list you may feel free to poke me with the soft cushions or force me to sit in the comfy chair.

2 words...Beautiful work.

Awesome stuff... I especially like the Carbon Canyon City Station. :up: :up:

Truly impressivee and inspired, great work!

Thanks KidFox I'll use em for sure! :D

07-21-2005, 10:12 AM
So cool! I can't wait to get home tonight and dowload this!
Ok, still jealous.

I have some buildings I could save and release for download. Do you want this to be a mega-building download thread where I could post some stuff too?

Really, really nice stuff there!

07-21-2005, 11:38 AM
Hey all thanks for the positive feedback! Makes me glad I stayed up late to finish this when I see that people enjoy it.

CK, Yeah that is a good idea I could modify the original post with that in mind. There seemed to be some indication yesterday on the general discussion forum that people are interested in downloading buildings.

07-21-2005, 11:44 AM
Sounds like a good idea!!!!!
I've got some too that people have been asking for.

07-21-2005, 12:07 PM
I took a break from working on my parks tonight in the couple of hours I had after work and a meeting to modify some of my custom buildings so others could download and use them. I started off with the three out of four released parks that have train stations and modified those structures for download.

Kamp KiDFoX Station

Carbon Canyon City Station

Expedition Pointe Station

I then decided to include the town square from Expedition Pointe including the entrance and finally opted to include two buildings I had revealed in Klinn's Frameworks thread.


Recreation of Jack's Surf Shop on the left and another commercial building that sit at the corner of Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach California

A note to those who wish to download this set:

Jack's Surf Shop made possible By Klinn's Frameworks set.

Details on Kamp KiDFoX Station made with Soaked! scenery.

EP Town Square uses Soaked! scenery

Jack's Surf Shop in the Huntington Beach group uses Klinn's Frameworks custom set and EP Square, HB buildings and the KiDFoX station use scenery from Soaked! So if you do not have Soaked! you will not get the full effect and things may look rather blah.

Carbon Canyon Station and EP station use RCT3 basic scenery and will work without Soaked or custom scenery.

That's all for now, I had a few more screens but I am tired so there it is then...

Hope these are useful.
See ya all later I am going to bed!

Thanks KF.
Let's all be sure to only post completed buildings and downloads. This shouldn't be a thread for works in progress. It would get waaaaay toooo loooong.
I don't think I'll be able to post any tonight. My wife gets back from Phoenix tonight. But at least this weekend.

07-21-2005, 12:20 PM

I agree, particularly in light of the number of works in progress that are never finished. The list I maintain would only be for completed projectst that users can download.

I don't think it matters if someone posts a WIP photo here it just won't be added to the list until it is finished and I will link the post with the finished photo to the dowload listing.

That should take care of that problem :)

This is the second custom building pack I have put together this one features KastleKiDFoX which I created just for this pack as a spooky park entrance but it could be used for a dark ride or a coaster or a food court, most anything really. I designed it so you can create a balcony with path tiles so the peeps can actually use it.



Daytime view

Another daytime view

Next are two ride houses that are modified from Expedition Pointe. These can be used for a variety of coasters and modified according to your needs.


The first is the ride house for the American Centennial Racer coaster which features room for dual stations and has a sign board on the top where you can add Caffeinated’s letters for a custom sign.




Lastly I have included an adventure style ride house that I use in Expedition Pointe for the B&M twister however it was originally built around a Vekoma tilt coaster so I know you can easily build whatever you need inside.


Hope these are useful.

Anyone else interested in adding to this thread I will link you at the top, if no one is interested I will let it slide off the index to the place where all the six flags parks that never get finished live...

EDIT: Forgot to mention that the castle need's Pumper's dark ride set and Klinn's frameworks set. The ride houses are RCT3 standard scenery.

Great work KF! Do you mind if I use these in my new park? These are great! Also, I'm thinking about linking up to this thread. What color link would you like?

Also, where can I find Klinn's and Cafinated's great work?

07-22-2005, 10:43 PM
No I don't mind if you use any of these that is the point of making them available. Feel free to use them as is or modify them if necessary.

Any link color but pink polka dots is fine with me.

07-22-2005, 10:50 PM
I made it FIREBRICK because of buildings. LOL :rolleyes: But I still need the links to Klinn's and Cafinated's art work.

07-22-2005, 10:52 PM
Ok... go to this thread (http://ataricommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=474101) and download Skippers desktop tool. He links all the custom scenery for you.

In our My Documents/RCT3 folder there should be a Structures folder that is where the dat files for the buildings go.

07-24-2005, 03:28 PM

DJ Atomix
07-24-2005, 03:42 PM
I just tried random ones.

07-24-2005, 03:45 PM
So what happned when you tried them?

DJ Atomix
07-24-2005, 06:42 PM
I got an error like theres no data or something.

07-24-2005, 06:46 PM
Do you have the custom scenary?

DJ Atomix
07-24-2005, 07:03 PM
I had an error with the scenery before, I'll try again though!

DJ Atomix
07-24-2005, 08:33 PM
Nope! Still having trouble. But the error said, "No objects found" or something like that.

In just a minute I'll post some of my buildings...

The following pictures are taken from CK World, just so you get an idea of how they can be used. The building editor doesn't save footpaths or stalls, so you can see how I wove them through in these shots.

That's only two of about seven buildings I saved for this purpose.

07-26-2005, 05:40 PM
I dont want to promote my park, but I am doing alot of Hollywood style buildings, for my Warner Brothers park, and sorry I cant post exact pictures, but after I upload them, I delete them, so go to my park (WB in my sig), and scroll down to the entrance. They are copys of the ones in WB parks, but they turned out really well. If anyone wants some of my buildings then tell me, or if you want a another building espically made for you, then ask me too, I love building them!

I am so glad they redid these forums because somehow I missed this thread. Great work and great idea. I truly suck at making buildings so this is a wonderful idea for me. Thanks KidFox and CK.

ps...CK, yours are not coming up for download. Any chance of putting them back up?


10-31-2005, 04:33 PM
Ok this is my first try with custom Scenery! I'm not good at making buildings.

So W1ckeD are there some new custom scenery pieces on there that you have created? The awnings do not look familiar and some of the other pieces seem new.

I like it!
