This is for Custom Scenario's, please include a brief descriptiomn of the goals, and rank it, easy, medium, hard.

Note: Like all Forums under The Exchange heading, there are no dead threads and no need to chastise someone for replying to older topics. You can resurrect old threads here.

We need to find the thread of all the RCT1-2 scenario recreations cyclone and a few other people did. It was a long thread too. It would be well at home here!

I'll post a discussion thread for each one, but I do agree the other thread is a good one to pin. :)

The 17 scenario thread should now be here. As I go down the "line" everything I hope will be sorted to the proper places.

Don't forget folks this is for scenarios that are completed.

Not coming soon. Use the user created media section to posts pics and videos of upcoming parks.

Surprised they didn't add a coming soon section--but at least the got this done. And I'm Super thrilled too--I actually can find some things I'm looking for.

media is for video's. Like if you do NOT intend to upload the Park, ride, or Scenario.

Pics and clips of W.I.P.'s go here or in Parks or depending on goals or not. Same as it was when everything was bunched together. The Exchange guidelines still apply to all sub-forums.

Skipper you of course didn't understand. UNFINISHED Scenarios do not belong in here. Pictures from the finished scenarios are more than welcome and in fact encouraged.

But if you are Promoting a COMING SOON thread then it does not belong here. All a Coming soon thread has is Images and a bunch of text--thus it is MEDIA.

I know that we suggested a "coming soon/unfinished projects" Thread--very dissapointed this was not added Especially since that was the majority of the old forum. Now it is just going to be a cluttered mess.

toomuch, if someone is near finishing a scenario, they can post threads in this forum...then later provide a download link (also edit original post). And given how many posts I expect this forum to have, it could also be for discussion of scenario-making and things like that.

This is just IMO NEway.

Why would it be cluttered??, self promotion of a scenario or a ride or a park doesn't change except that each now has it's own place.
So, if someone is doing a scenario and wants you to know about it where would it make the most sense to find out about it?
In the scenario forum.

I wouldn't announce or promote a track in custom scenery, or a park in media. The main reason it became media was to get excellent video work it's own exposure, not have that become cluttered with park and scenario promotions. Then we'd have had no reason at all to give everything it's own area.

I do agree near complete scenarios could be ok but one of the reasons I left the Exchange forums was because people promoted a scenario/park/whatever and never followed through and posted a link.

It got so bad that one day out of 20 threads I read in the exchange forum 19 of them had no CONTENT attached to them--this is an EXCHANGE FORUM to trade content.

Just like in the Real world Promoting should be done when you have something to offer. That is why we asked for a coming soon forum many months ago along with a sepearte category for each product that comes from the RCT3 user created stuff.

We offered so many suggestions prior to you changing the forums and I see now many of them were just flat out ignored. I guess I should be happy with what you gave us. And To tell you the truth I'm more than thrilled but I refuse to create and post any Finished Scenarios/park/scenery amongst a hodgpodge of Uncompleted Names of actual old threads and the reasons I left the forums to begin with all listed below.
"Wait til next month when I've finished this" --Never finished
"coming in 6 weeks" --Never finished
"my scenario almost complete" ---Never finished
"Will be done tomorrow" - Computer crash no post
"blues clues land of the demons" --Never finished

Pictures sell the park when you are able to download something. I have been away from these Exchange forums for so long for the exact reason I stated above. The TRUE content was getting lost.

Hopefully I can say I'm wrong on this--With the split of the threads perhaps I will be able to wade through alot less of these unfinished threads--or maybe *coming soon* or *DOWNLOAD* should be included in the titles to seperate these things(of course nobody would follow those guidelines).


EDIT: While I'm at it figured I would post what "media" really is:
Media is NEWS plain and simple
multimedia:The combined use of media, such as television, radio, print, and the Internet, as for advertising or publicity.

People have misunderstood the meanings of these words since the advent of the multimedia word. It has grown to represent VIDEO and that is far from the truth.


**********************************************
Special Edit 2 Note:The Reason I've posted these posts to begin with because there are already empty threads throughout the entire exchange forum--some dont even have pictures just "text descriptions" This is not limited to the scenario section(just happens to be the section I show the most interest in).

Please note, I did not Make the change, like you, just a cog in the wheel of progress. I understand the "wading" and cursing over the empty threads and b.s. I understand what media is.

I also understand what the intent of the heirarchy was as well, All things were considered to make it easier to locate different types of goodies.
While media is and can be news. I'd rather follow a park or ride's progress in one forum, not two. That would just further confuse people, "go here for what I am doing" "Go here to get it"

I was rereading our posts here and then in the forum and was struck that one we are fully unified on what the forum still is.

There are threads here for underdevelopement scenarios. (And that should be a part of this forum, though perhaps the title should clearly say-- Name of Scenario-COMPLETE, or Name of Scenario-Underdevelopement)

And then I did not see any of the guidelines about what the scenario part of the park is, what are the different goals for Apprentice, Entrepreneur and Tycoon, etc. That is somewhat of a disservice that I think is very much needed.

I see I have to close this... This thread is NOT where you post your scenario's......
