After several days I'm finally satisfied wth the 1st genuine ride to grace my Six Flags - St. Louis Park (the parking lot tram doesn't count :p )

The Screamin' Eagle

Featuring both famous Red and Blue trains

Due to the coaster editor limitations (specifically turn and incline angles), its not perfect but its as close as its going to get after trying numerous variations. (If anything is to be changed it would be the third hill) The station and terrain still need some work, but the major bulk is finished.

Note: Its 3876 ft long (the real Eagle is 3872) and actually 2 identical coasters on top of one another using the track intersect options.txt cheat with the trains timed to run apart from each other. Other than the trains colors its almost impossible to tell its 2 seperate coaster unless you look really close.

I started in the back of the park to give an over all feel of the room and to get a feel for the terrain incline the park needs.
All in all its going well now, keep posted for updates soon.

Spanzini - It may take awhile considering it has taken several days for this coaster alone, and im still putting on the finishing touches, which brings us to the custom logo.

Now all I got to do is figure out how to get this baby in game.
Im not a noob to modeling but I am a noob to RCT3's format and Jonwills importer. Any tips , tuts etc. would be helpful. I'll get it eventually, I'd just rather it be sooner than later. :P

Ok, it took most of the day but I got it in game, (after some alterations) The game is very rough on the texture however.
This shot is when the logo is the most visible at daybreak, it gets too dark later on, even at noon. There is also some blue marring (bleedthrough?) where it is meant to be white. Any tips or help with these two texturing issues would be appreciated.

EDIT: I can't believe that no one has offered any texturing tips/help, but thats ok cause I figured it out myself as the screenshot now shows. I really can't believe that someone has yet to comment on the custom logo.

The Screamin' Eagle has landed! I'm finally satisfied after a couple revisions and can call it complete. 2 custom meshes were made for this classic coaster.
The Screamin' Eagle coaster logo for the third hill and scaled down version with posts for the entrance logo.

Sometime after Wild is released for two reasons: The giant ferris wheel is a must for the park (Colossus) and it will take at least that long to finish. I apologize for the lack of updates but the good news is that THE BOSS is finished except for its station and logo.

aww sweeeeet!!!!!!! could you make a download of just the scenery later? i c ant wait to see pics of the boss!!!!! it was my first coaster ever and my favorite coaster ever!!!! i want to see some pics soon. im so anxious to see. im also working on a recreation of six flags st louis, but i cant create custom scenery. im also waiting on a new computer that i can upgrade. otherwise, i would put sreenshots on the net. Great Job!!!! SF Stl is such a little known park, unklike Cedar Point or SF Magic Mountain. Its just soo cool that i will be able to have custom scenery for my home park. Im soo excited, Cant wait!!!!!!

Right click and select wireframe overlay.

I apologize once again for the lack of updates. I have a flash movie project that is scheduled for release at the end of this month, so I've been busy with that.
Although I'd like to wait until the station, scenery, logo, etc is completed, I know a few of you have been waiting to see SOMETHING new so I thought I'd take some time to show an overview of

THE BOSS
http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/8886/bossoverview0fa.jpg

You really find out just how limited RCT3 track pieces are when recreating this monstrosity. Even with all the photo angles and a direct overhead view at my disposal. Eagle was a cakewall to this beast. Various other attractions sprung up around it during my many rehashes of the ride when i just had to get away from it for awhile.
So fear not, all is not dead. In fact I have more finished than you think - including custom scenery for MR. FREEZE

some things are way off like. where mr. freeze and thunder river are in perspective to the boss. the third hill on the boss needs to be bigger. i cant wait to see mr freeze custom scenery. keep it up, looking forward to more updates

Ignore the other elements for now, the park has to be expanded on one side and many things have to be moved.
Look closely and you'll see the hill is set down into the terrain for now and the terrain still needs work.
Thanks.

Sick, SF St. Louis is my home park too, I made a very complte recreation of it for RCT1 a long time ago I even included the secret emplyee areas too haha from when I used to work there. Good work, there's no way you could get me to recreate SF: STL on RCT3 I'll get to frustrated with the limitations and trying to get the terrain to line up just right to connect paths to the attractions.

Hhhmm, Just because they're 8 days apart doesn't mean it won't matter. If you want to bump a topic atleast delete one of your posts you friggin' idiot. (Couldn't resist:p )

You could be a bit less rude, in spite of the dates, there were obviously no updates or there would have been other replies. In that case it's better not to edit OR reply.

I really love it! And I'd like to see some more real pictures to compare it! But so far, it looks very accurate! I've never been there though! Love the custom logo!

EDIT: Sorry, didn't see the dates either, lol.

Sorry guys.
My hard drive crashed back in Dec. and I lost everything - not just the park and models, but all my projects and mods.
Since then, I've loaned RCT3 to a friend which I've yet to get back.
I passed RCT3 on the store shelf yesterday and it reminded me of the park I lost. Maybe I'll start it over again once I get it back but everything you saw in the screenshots I posted is Fubar.

I was just at SFSL and the Screamin' Eagle looks good but Boss and the area around doesn't look right...

Edit: I didn't see the dates for it all either...
