Both are right. Yeah I am going to try and recreate it. I have never ridden it, so that is a big henerence. So thing have to be takin out. Like the holding break, there is not one for diagonal pieces, the turn you see it the first pic should be alot smoother, and just some other thing that have to be changed around for the game. I have the layout done, just have to theme everything. One question though.....Can you make any track go underwater or just water tracks? And Can they go under with a diagonal piece? These are bot important for the recreration and I can't seem to get them to work.:mad:

the second shot really gave it away. there are only like 3 vd coasters on earth, alton towers is like, in a hole for part, the one in china well, is not this, and this has sheikra's paintjob, ending turn into the water, and plunge into the ruin thing. it looks good though.

I rode it, the holding break is needed and it shouldn't be on a diagonal slant.

I got a sorta holding break working but not a good one. Does it not go down at a angle from the lift? I hope not because that is gonna cause some problems.:eek:

how are you going to do the immelman, as there aren't any on VD coasters on RCT3 (Unless they've put them in WILD! and my mate hasn't found them).
Looks quite good, if you want to get the track layout right, try this site:SheiKra videos (http://www.nogodforme.com/Sheikra2005.htm) Download the Front Row one, so you can see what's going on...
Good Luck with this, I made a version in RCT2 using a trainer, but it wasn't that good... It's quite a hard coaster to build!

Just make it so that it goes out of the station turns 180degrees, goes up hill, turns 180degrees and then goes down the hill.

Sprog2-You are a lifesaver!!!!! Those are just the pics I have been looking for! Oh yeah and I hate you:mad: . HAHA Now I have to go back and fix everything. I worked on the ride again this morning, and decided to redo the last drop area. I also keep redoing the layout finding new ways to do everything the best I can. Sadly I can't do the immelman:( , but I went with the half loop-to-loose dive to try to get the feel. All the disabilities the game has with angels also slow me down. The first hard turn around the lift hill is a killer to do, and I have decided to go with what I have now. If I do it just like the ride it is impossible, so what is does is a helix, then a wide "up" turn, and a quick angle turn, to get it lined up right. This is the only way it can go to worj with the lift hill, immelman, and the second drop. Here are some pics, which now will be mostly redid and have to still have alot added to them:

The second drop with the half loop in the background. I have to add buildings and the Smokehouse still.

And now a pic of what has to be fixed, and what has to be added:

Thanks to Grog for the pic.
http://img181.imageshack.us/img181/4686/shot01656zz.png
The colors match up for the pics.

Red-I can recreate this turn exactly but I will make do. Just have to rearange the tree and water a bit.
Green-Yet to be added.
Blue-Have to fix the way the water goes at this angle. The path is what is going to be tricky.
Yellow-Have to add the Smokehouse area.
Orange-Have to make the building.


So as you can see I have alot of work to do and now with the pics from Grog2 I should be able to fix what needs fixin.:) :up:

Also you can see I changed that after the coaster drops into the tunnel it turns a little underground. I done this so that adding the water and building/paths would look better. You really can't tell though while one the ride.

Ok. The real ride has scoopers on the back of each train that scoop water and hurl it way up in the air and spray the crowd. ITs a lot of water but the people on the train dont get wet. very cool if you could get it to work, or like you said, make it look better:D

Thanks!:) It will be both. I like making videos so their will be one.

I figured out why the track won't go under to. It is because I have Wild! so that is it, I guess? Does anyone have or have seen some pics that show the rides entrance area? And also the area behind the turn out of the tunnel, like where the smokehouse is? Any of these would be greatly apprcieated(sp).

Looks like a pretty good overall recreation! There is a major track issue, though, and I'm not sure why you did it.... I think you made it more complicated by doing this, but I don't think you can change it without some major re-doing...


The second and final vertical drop... why is it at a diagonal? I think it would be more accurate and actually easier to theme if it had been just straight. I don't think that the brake run goes over the path, either.

The station is a lot higher than where you have it right now. You should be able to put about two customized stores under it(that's about the right height for the game, I think...)

I'm not so sure that the immelman should be that far away, I think maybe you should have not had one or two of those straight peices, I think this might have made it a bit easier too.

Also, the path never goes above the track. The track just appears to go "under" the water. The path goes just beside the tunnel, but never crosses over it.

Trust me on these, because I stood near Shei-Kra for nearly two hours once while waiting for my mom and sister to change their clothes since they got wet. I thought they were just going to the bathroom, but they went to the car and I got stuck there for about 2 hours right where the train comes out of the tunnel that goes "under water"....

Just another little tiny thing with the supports. The supports after the lifthill approaching the holding brake are just straight, vertical poles.


But it's way better than anything I could do! :D 5 stars!

hillibilly
11-28-2005, 05:17 PM
Thanks Y_N_H! But I think I can explain everything I did lol(or I might just be in denial lol:haha: )

Anyway......
The second and final vertical drop... why is it at a diagonal? I think it would be more accurate and actually easier to theme if it had been just straight. I don't think that the brake run goes over the path, either.
When I first started I has it to go striaght, but I soon found out that to have it go staright would mean that the turn out of it would not look right. THEN I found thi pic:PIC (http://www.nogodforme.com/images/Sheikra023.jpg). And also saw that it went diagonal with the first drop....to have the hill diagonal would mean no holding break and know large loop. So I went like this hope that explains that.

The station is a lot higher than where you have it right now. You should be able to put about two customized stores under it(that's about the right height for the game, I think...)
It is now up higher. I am sure two stalls could fit underneath it. Thanks for the stall idea though, thats a good measure to go by.

I'm not so sure that the immelman should be that far away, I think maybe you should have not had one or two of those straight peices, I think this might have made it a bit easier too.

I was think about that too last night when I saw the above pic. That will be fixed. Also look how far away the drop is from the break-run...I screwed that up big time. Thanks again!

Also, the path never goes above the track. The track just appears to go "under" the water. The path goes just beside the tunnel, but never crosses over it.
My path never goes over the tunnel.

Just another little tiny thing with the supports. The supports after the lifthill approaching the holding brake are just straight, vertical poles.
That was fixed last night aswell after seeing this:PIC2 (http://www.nogodforme.com/images/Sheikra032.jpg) .

So I think that is everything. Right now I am mostly concern with the loop being so far away, and the freakin exit LOL. Everything else is going find though. Thanks again.;) :up:

I relly like your sheikra receraction it looks relly acerted so far what tipe of coaster did you use for this receraction? I think that atria should have put a vitradrop coaster car on the extened coaster it whould have been relly cool if the vitra drop coaster had an incine loop and a half loop so you could do it with that tipe of coaster. I think that your coaster looks relly good I can'nt wate for some more screenshots of this receraction. Did you use the pumpers supports to the coaster? If you din'nt I think that you should add them to the coaster it whould make it more reallist looking. when do you think that you will relese the recreation of sheikra?

Now that is nice! Spot on!
I've ridden SheiKra Twice, and that really does look just like it!
Have you got holding brakes on it yet, or are you just using block brakes?
The use of the steelworx pack really bumps up the realism, I think the way you've done the water cushion is fine, As there isnt any water under the track, its in a little basin, and the way you've done it is great :up: :up: :up:

Also.. I HATE YOU TOO! You have WILD!:D I'm not allowed to buy it "because christmas is coming up"...

Keep up the good work, can't wait for a video! (Also can't wait to get WILD! and for you to release this, so I can have a proper look up close)

Oh, sinerman, IT IS THE ONLY ONE WORTH RIDING... you ride SheiKra, and oblivion is simply, erm, boring and short and slow. Haven't ridden the Japan one, so I can't compare it, but this is one of the best coaster's i've ever been on (Hulk just beats it!)

G5 in Japan is Ok. Its not as good as Oblivion, but to be Honest I don't think SheiKra's as Good as Oblivion either. Oblivion is so short-Its brilliant. Also, Its the first of its kind.

The "Look through the widow at the hole" pic lol.

Well I have ran into a couple of more problems. First, the after the coaster loops, since I don't have the right pieces, I can't get it to go striaght enough to not pass over the ride station. It passes over way to far up this is killing me for two reasons. The station can't be up high because the track the runs into the roof, and it also can't turn enogh to make a smooth transition to the break run.

Second, is the half loop not being over far enough from the station. This means that the exit "silo" doesn't have enough room to fit. Also the main entrance area, where the loop starts and comes a little over the path, can't look right. The station is also being a Bi#%ch lol. I can't seem to get the path right due to the station and the lift hill, and the loop.

Basically this whole thing has been chioces to have one thing over another. It SUCKS to pick. So what do you guys think really needs to be there and what we can live without.

I have some good news....I am still working on the ride, but not as strongly as I was. Just a little bit here and there. I think I have the track problems fixed though it is just the exit of the ride that is giving be troubles(where the silo is) See the way the innemal goes up at just a diferent angle then what the game allows it means that the exit can't fit. So I am redoing a new kinda exit that will fit it more. Pics soon:D
