Hersheypark is my "home" park so I was thrilled to learn Soaked included some Hershey stuff. I couldn't resist trying to make an accurate rendition of the park in RCT3.
When finished I plan on including the entire park, Chocolate World, parking lots, Hershey Arena and Stadium, the Giant Center, Zoo America, surrounding areas, and the chocolate factory. As we all know though, RCT3 isn't exactly friendly with slower computers - and my system barely runs the game, but I still use RCT3. I don't expect to be finished until I get a new computer lol (and even then I hear people still have problems with larger parks).
Anyways, here are some pics of my progress. Everything is still under construction though. Sorry for the bad quality, but the only way I can get the game to run is if the settings are low.

Founders Circle with Comet in the background:

Great Bear soaring close to the ground just before the Immelman (one of my favorite parts of the ride!)

Minetown Restaurant and the Comet station in the background:

Kissing Tower:

Flying Falcon and some kiddie rides. I wish the developers would have made a generic version of the Huss Condor...I think the flames look stupid lol (but that's just my opinion)

Sidewinder:

Sidewinder, Trailblazer, and Storm Runner (under construction). Why they only allow diagnol inversions is beyond me ggrrrr!

Canyon River Rapids:

Tidal Force...not quite to scale but at least it should fit:

That's all for now...hopefully we'll all get better computer performance in the future and I will be able to complete it lol.

That looks cool, I wish there were more uses for Storm runner, but why did Atari team with Hershey for Soaked! I mean they only have 1 park, Atari should of picked Wet n' Wild or Six Flags again! I cant wait for the download, but I dont think you should make the factory or Stadium, they will just take up lag, you might as well make the park more detailed instead.

Great work at Hershey Park for RCT! It's also my "home" park so I guess I can judge you on it! I know that RCT doesn't have the best paths so I'll let most of that slide. Great work though!

Thank you all for your comments :) !

live_the_thrill , I'm not sure why they teamed up with Hershey...you're right though, one would think they would team with a larger park chain and audience. I am trying to make it as detailed as possible...I want to keep to Arena and Stadium because of their locations, but you're right - the factory I may scrap.

RCT4me , I'm building the park on a Dell Inspiron 8100 notebook, PIII 1.3 Ghz, 512 mb Ram, GForce 2 32 mb card...yup, it's slow lol.

DJ Atomica , I hope to finish it sometime in my life lol - when I don't know (I have to save for a new system - and even then I hear people still have problems with large parks so I'm debating if it's even worth it)...yeah the layout of the park will not be 100% accurate because of the limitations with RCT3. It kinda looks like an "L" on it's side right now. I have been there a number of times and am doing most of the terrain work by memory, so that may be off as well in certain places.

I'll post some new screens when I get some more work done.

I get in for free every year. I go to the Trailblazer Pavilion for some chef's meeting that dad has to go to. So I have to get in for free. LOL But that's a nice pavilion, but there are two. Yes, two. There a verry small gap inbetween them. You can't tell from the public walkway.

Good job talonboy02! I liked Hershey Park, sadly, I live about 6 - 7 hrs away from it. I still remember going on that ride at the gate for the tour of the Hershey Factory and getting free Hershey candy at the end.

That would be the Chocolate Tour at Chocolate World.

Looks wonderful. Hope you put it up to download soon. I wish I could see in for real.
I guess I shouldn't complain I have Disenyland Magic Mountain Wet and Wild Knotts Universal and Seaworld all close by. :p

Thanks again for the comments...here are a few more pics. Again, sorry about the quality, but I'm sure it looks better on faster computers:

An overview of Tudor Square, Rhineland, and the main entrance:

Chocolate World under construction:

Parking lot (I didn't add cars yet - the park is still "closed" for the season :) ) and Chocolate World. I also included the Chocolate Tour ride inside and used an on-ride soundfile. Special thanks to HP Slappy for the sounds (as well as others throughout the park)

The new pics are good. I would like to download it. Can you save the buildings and rides separately? That would be cool.:noob:

Jrnck97, why did you ressurrect this month-old topic. talonboy02 may update if he feels like it, or let it go down the drain; it's all up to him.

Anyways, PM'ing him would have answered your question just as well.
