Wanted to try the new custom scenery, and a dry climate after the non stop raining in my last park, here is the "Casa encantada"

A little restaurant at the entrance

Pool complex at night, the biggest pool is covered, there is a restaurant above the upper uncovered pool

the set from Stuck 71 has been really helpfull, especially for the "pueblo" looking, and the dead tree of marnetmar look alive with some bushes;)

Looks pretty good, I forgot, what does encantada mean?

P.S.: The last 3 pics are not working for me.
P.S.S.: They are working now.

08-15-2005, 12:46 PM
Wow... excellent start. You've hit the adobe-feel of those buildings perfectly with Klinn's arch pieces.

And, such a simple idea to bring life to marnetmar's dead tree... it looks great! That might have several uses... hmmm.... :cool:

Awesome stuff!

08-15-2005, 12:50 PM
Strange, all pics were in the preview, another try, so here is the pueblo

Btw, encantada means ...not exactly magic ...Oh I can't explain in English, help me, please, if I translate literally it would be "delighted" but it's a wrong translation
I'm running late see you tomorrow guys I'll find time to translate;)

Hi manue,
This is looking wonderful. That tree was a great piece of work. Neat idea. I think those arches really add the Spanish influence to the park. You should try adding an old Spanish church to the mix. Have you done research on pueblo's? You've got some great buildings. I like the use of custom scenery. Very ingenius! I did some pueblo buildings as well. Check out the pics in Roaring Canyons.
Good job, keep it coming!
Thanks for sharing with us.

08-15-2005, 02:54 PM
Very nice job! I love the atmosphere the park has. People have been putting all these custom scenery sets to some really good uses.

I think the giga coaster looks a bit out of place, but besides that, excellent park so far!

08-15-2005, 03:04 PM
great blending of landscape, buildings, and rides, into a great park atmosphere.

08-15-2005, 03:24 PM
Great landscaping man... great atmosphere, very Spanish alike...
The buildings are very nicely done!

08-15-2005, 03:29 PM
Very nice! Snacko likes it very much!

08-15-2005, 03:46 PM
Amazing !

08-15-2005, 07:11 PM
Wow ,so many replies since I left, thank you it's great!
I first have to apology about the spelling of my last post, my friends where expecting me and writing fast in english...the result it's terrible:(

Have you done research on pueblo's
Yes, I made the research on "new-Mexico architecture" "Adobe houses"...etc and I mixed it with spanish haciendas I've seen in spain and western scenery...It's a fantasy land located between Santa-fe, Ibiza in Spain, Nevada , and north Mexico;)

I think the giga coaster looks a bit out of place
I was on the way to do a wooden coaster which is better in this type of park but..telling you the truth I 'm bad at doing coasters, and this one is easy to built :D ok shame on me, I can spend hours on a building but I'm the laziest peep for some rides, it just has to be "rideable",I mean good stuff rates and happy peeps
So, out of subject but I was on a hurry to see a wonderfull fireworks that my city is offering every year, August 15th. Wow, half an hour of pleasure , I felt like I was 10 years old, "encantada":heart:

08-15-2005, 07:45 PM
You should try adding an old Spanish church to the mix
Oh Yes Larry, and there's some transversal supports in Pumper last set, great to make croces ;)

Last pics before I go to bed !!!

08-16-2005, 06:30 PM

Good job! :up: :up:

08-17-2005, 03:12 AM
Rctgirl, have you seen the date on the ****le ? I could add 2005 to be more explicit;)
Anyway thank you for the comments, and sorry to remind you about school, it seems you don't like it so much:haha: I don't learn anything about pueblos at school but those years are far, oh so far behind me:(

08-22-2005, 04:52 PM
Last pics, unfortunatly I played without shuting some programs running on my pc and the game crashed before I saved it, so I start again but theming and landscaping are not finished yet
Mine train station and Taos Express 2nd stop and another restaurant:

Huh, Milkdud?:confused: :confused: :confused:

:haha: :haha: !


08-22-2005, 05:11 PM
Those 8/22 pics are beatiful, Manue! Are you in Spain?

08-22-2005, 05:45 PM
I can feel a wonderful calm in this park! Well done!

08-22-2005, 06:30 PM
Me encanta! Su parque es bellesa! Me gusta much el Hotel con pisina! Muy lindo!!
muchas merci, molto gracias:haha:

Are you in Spain?
Thank you Pumper, I'm living near the north frontier of Spain, in "Pays Basque" and, even if there are few houses in the"spanish/mexican" style, the architecture is completly different.
But I always love adobe buildings, New-mexico architecture, and also the big Spanish haciendas we can see in Andaluzia, for exemple. Two helping things: search images on the web and...custom sceneries ;)

I can feel a wonderful calm in this park
I'm glad to hear that, Tidus, that is the way I want peeps feeling...relaxing, having a drink or lunch, admiring the vi....Oh no!! :rolleyes:
They'd better not ride my coasters but it won't be the main focus in this park, all the ideas I've in mind are soft attractions and nice landscaping

08-25-2005, 08:06 AM
Here are the last pics, "La Hacienda del sol" is almost finished, as the Taos express

Strange thing on the other shots, I place the roses where is the blue arrow and it shows also along the path
http://img372.imageshack.us/img372/8007/rosebug2oa.th.jpg (http://img372.imageshack.us/my.php?image=rosebug2oa.jpg)

but close up, they just appear along the path

Doesn't bother me, I like this bug:)

There is still an empty place in the middle of the park, I'll probably put som flat rides, a little more theming and landscaping and the park will be complete :)

08-25-2005, 08:26 AM
Looks awesome manue! You're terraforming is great!
The flowers in the game, by default, want to be on the ground. That's how you can put a tree inside a flower bed. You just insert either above or below the tree and it shows up on the ground.
See ya!

08-29-2005, 04:45 AM
Hi Larry, yes I didn't notice before the flowers stuff, now I know;)

But this one IS a bug :cry: I don't want some sharks flying in my western themed park:cry:

Great, I can feel the atmosphere. Even though it doesn't look like it, it reminds me of Cambrils, next to Salou. Maybe because those round towers on "La Hacienda del Sol". Anyway, great work and also a good idea using those "glass" custom scenery walls to cover the pool complex. I love this park. Music of the Gypsy Kings will make it complete:D

08-29-2005, 04:59 AM
And some random views

The park is completed and If someone is interested I'll put it for download tonight or tomorrow:D

08-29-2005, 05:01 AM
I'd love to have this one in my parks list.

08-29-2005, 06:38 AM
So here is the link, I still have time this morning but I'll be really busy next weeks and I know that, as I'll never considere a park finish; everytime I look at it I find some stuff to change/add/modify:rolleyes: I prefer sharing it now


Those custom scenery are requested:
Iceatcs curve slide supports
Cafeen letters
SK hangar 51
Pumper steelworx, darkride and blox
Marnetmar dark ride
Klinn framework
Thanks again to those:) I hope I didn't forget anyone

Music of the Gypsy Kings will make it complete
:cry: I forgot and it's exactly the music I wanted to put for the little orchestre in la Hacienda :cry:
As i told before i have to go back again and again in the parks;)

08-29-2005, 12:03 PM
Flying sharks are always anoying even in a beach park, the dive bomb the ladies hair and scare the kids.

Seriously this is great I love how you use custom scenery to get the right look and the colors are great.
