Hi, folks. I'm finally resurfacing in the forums after spending way too much time on this project. But it's done and I'm doing my happy dance.

This was a re-implementation of my old RCT Castaways "megapark" in RCT3. It was quite an experience, and some of you might be surprised at how much of RCT1 made it into RCT3. Some minor changes were necessary but all in all, I feel as if I reconstructed my park in 3D.


Here's the web page. (http://home.comcast.net/~samspoker/castaways3D.htm)

Here's the Castaways "documentary" video (32MB .wmv) (http://rapidshare.de/files/4127915/ScottsCastaways.wmv.html) (That's on Rapidshare)

I hope y'all enjoy it.

Here are some stills:

BEAUTIFULL! I always wondered if it was possible to recreate an rct1 park! You did a great job! everything looks great! Congrats on finishing! I am sure it took a ton of hard work! I will download it in a while... I might have to turn the graphix down a bit though! :D :up:

WoW a great video. I totally loved the construction phase (cars by the coasters! - very true).

Just a super park. I dl'd it and cant wait to explore the world of "tropical joy."

Thanks very much for sharing with us.

Thanks for the kudos, folks.

(The cars-by-the-coasters thing would make more sense if it wasn't on a tiny island. Do the workers show up for work by ferry? Oh, and if you look closely at the wooden coaster construction, you'll see that all the rides were built by....the mechanics!)

I learned a few handy tricks with the flying camera route editor. I will write a post about it soon. This will be an addition to the already-excellent tutorials on the subject.

Hello again, SamSpoker!

What trainer did you use to complete the original Castaways park in old RCT1?!

Thank You!
