something that would be cool is something to put over the speakers like a tree so you can place it around rides withought it being seen or a rock or some other thing

I can probably make that.....but polygon count will most likly be highso it will ave to be blocky or lag your game.....but ill see what i can do.:)

I could make a tree or rock....and have the rock/tree be a speaker........but should it be a normal rock/tree or should the rock/tree have a speaker coming out of it?

How about making snow covered trees and other snow items e.g snowmen, snow balls, snow covered walls and roofs :D

snow pieces sound good.
also, i had requested a set of musicians a while back, and i would really appreciate it if they were made. just 4 simple pieces: a drummer/drumset (1X1 tile), 2 guitarists (one playing acoustic, one electric) (1/4 tile) and a bassist(1/4 tile). something like the scenery from rct2 would be great. (no motion, of course, as it is not supported)
-thanks;)

I said i didn't want to do walls and roofs......as for trees...not sure.....will have to try making them for first time. I can make some snow balls and snowmen though....easy:)

well I was thinking kinda make it look relistic and have a little very hard to see speaker in it which I know you dont want to do walls but something like this one (Bon bon land dog fart coaster(seriously) http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/hiimmisterdude/speakerinwall.jpg) or you could put that speaker into the rock so it looks a little more real and put it in the tree somewhere

hey, no worries. i hope somebody can make these for me:bulb:
well, anyway, good luck with this set, looks good :up:
[EDIT]
i just got an idea... it would be cool, since you are going to do snow theemed things, if you could make something like a snow bank and a similar piece to put against other walls to make it look like if it was partially covered with snow...

Zeppelin
11-20-2005, 01:35 PM
ok, I have started work onthe pack and have the pool table (with relolorable top) almost done, I just have to texture the snowmen, and the icecube.....well that was paticullary easy but I may go back and makeit a little more real:)

in my opinion they should be about the size of around 4x4 give or take a few depending how it looks,

cant wait to see the pool table....try cut out the pockets so coasters can go through them :up:

if its a big pool table of course lol

Zeppelin
11-20-2005, 02:08 PM
I'll try to do that with the pool table but it may be too many polygons........I'm going to make real size ones and large ones that way people can use them however they want.


I am having trouble with the soccerball.....I have no idea how to texture it....it always comes out wrong because of the hexagon and pentagons on it.........so I may not do that one



Edit: ok I am am/was doing the staspeder3000........andi got the general shape........impored it into the game, but I'm affraid the Polygon count is too high........my fps goes from about 100 to around 80 when i add one. I am trying to reduce the number now but i might have to drop the idea. If i can't get the polygon count low enough....how would everyone feel about letters like cafeens's, but in a different font?....good or bad idea?

i just thought up a new scenery-idea at exactly 3:59 cdt. how 'bout somebody makes a pack that holds real coaster stations? like, someone would make a pack that includes the incredible hulk coaster station, raging bull station, top thrill dragster, etc. but they have to be coasters; no drop-zone building ****. good idea? huh? :D

i got another request, how about some flat roofs with sky and star textures etc??

tmb11
11-23-2005, 12:58 AM
hmm, well if you want to try doing something challenging you can always fulfill my custom scenery wish (let me find the link...)
edit: anyways, this is what i posted:

This isnít really a request but more of a suggestion. There have been many great things created by custom scenery authors (all of which I love ) but the one thing Iíve never seen created that I think is something everyone loves and would like more of. TREES! I always see posts that ask for more trees in the next expansion or to get wild because it has lots of new trees etc. but I havenít seen any created by custom scenery authors. I know someone made a ďspookyĒ tree in one of there dark ride sets but thatís it. I think one thing that might be hard is all the leaves but even then just dead trees (with no leaves) would be cool. I think itís something the community would love just as much as pumperís (great) supports. I do have a few requests of different trees but the rest you could design, or even ignore my ideas. anywayÖ

1. A super tall tree like the red oaks in California. You could make a cool park with those and make some parks a bit more realistic. Something thatís at least twice as tall as the sugar pine.

2. A massive tree like the tree of life at animal kingdom (okay, maybe a little smaller), that could be used as the centerpiece of the park.

3. One that braches way out like the banyan tree except bigger and farther (branches)

Maybe a few bushes too. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone was willing to do this and would support you all the way . If you are up to it pm me if you have any ideas or want someone to help with designing or something like that and make sure to provide a link to the thread! (though Iíll be checking this forum regularly). Thanks =)

ok, i think i have enough......if i take any more than i will not be able to release the pack in a week or two as i plan.


I wont include anything beside what's on my list.....but maybe in the next one.:)

and the final list is:
rockwell letters and numbers
the speakers
--3 rocks W/speakers
--maybe some trees with speaker*
--trachcan with speaker :P
--speaker that can be placed in walls
--large speakers for stations
snow themed things (not walls and roofs)
--snowmen
--snowballs (piles)
--ice cube
--possibly some trees*
--snow shovel
--snow pile
--snow drift
sports theme
--soccer- a soccerball
--Baseball- a baseball/bat
--Football- a football/helmet?
--Tennis - tennis raqet/ball
--Golf - a golf bag/clubs/ball/scoreboard
--Rugby (egg chasers) - a rugby ball/goals
--Pool - pool table/balls
--Darts - darts/dartboard
--Ice Hockey - stick/puck
--Poker - poker chips (100,500,1000,and10000 chips)
~and~
giant turkey*
hydrolic

note: *=may not be done due to polygon count making to much lag. or that object will look very blocky.

All objects in the sports part will be made in a small and large version that way they can be used in a gameroom type area or as scenery for coasters.'

The pack will probably be realease late next week or early the week after due to problems I am having with icons.

Ice cubes are cool :o . Besides people do this on there own time out of there own free will so apprectiate anything they do even if it is an ice cube (i personally like ice cubes)

I hope you do the trees zepplin, but it's your custom scenery so you should do what you want. I knew it might be tricky to do with all the leaves...Hope you make all that stuff, but it is a big list. (it would be awesome if you could make all of it though).

the problem with trees is that I have no idea how to do alph textures......and even ifI did do alpha textures that would be soooomany polygons.......I curious just how they make the trees for RCT3.

Late to post but I have a few ideas...

LIM's; regular and inverted
Hydralic launches
giga coaster brakes
snow covered trees and roofs
figure out how to get LOD in use

The speaker ideas above were interesting, what I'd do is create the commonly used big amps, and make it placeable on block pieces so it can go in custom stations. The default speakers in the game are so unrealistic when you have a decent speaker system... None of those things could generate even half the bass of the small sub I have.

OOOOO...that's a good idea (easy one aswell)......I'll have to add it......and the hydrolic lauches will be in there (will add to list)

Oh, and Zepplin, for a future pack (because I'm planning on a cool new dark ride) could you make me a sign that says, "The Pharoah's Chamber" for my ride, if it's not too much trouble. You know, like some sand and curves, not just a square. Thanx!

If youcan give me a rough idea of what you want the sign to look like then yeah I can make it........just PM or email me a rough idea of what you want the sign to look like and I will do it after I finish this scenery pack.:)

I think you should keep going with that poker chips idea, and make an entire casino theme pack. Poker chips, cards, martini glasses, LOTS of stuff with flashy lights, those huge spotlights that go up into the sky, a red carpet...

stuff like that. I think that would be cool, lol.

The tree will just be a regular tree that has been reimported so that it will be a speaker. I'm doing this because I have no idea how to make a tree so I will just reimport a few trees that are in the game (some spooky and a few regular).

Ok, I could and was thinking about it but I couldn't do flashy lights or those big moving spotlights because A. not possible to do animation. B. I'm having a hard time with lighting andthe scenery.

I think I will do the casino pack.......so the poker chips won't be in this set....but in a caino set I will do afterwards I guess. unless no one wants a casino pack.:confused:
