View Full Version : Potential Minas Tirith Scenary

12-18-2005, 08:30 PM
Some of you may know that I am currently constructing a park based on the Middle Earthen city of Minas Tirith (see my sig for link). I can do a great deal with what has already been created for the game and what came with it, but I am still lacking in several things. The main thing is the army that will assault the city, something I had built into my RCT2 park with terracotta soldiers and elephants and a large statue somewhat resembling a troll. For anybody that really has no profound purpose in life or just looking for something to do, help would be most appreciative in this area. The things I need are not walls as much as actual scenary items.

-Siege towers: I can create these with current game items, but they will look fairly pathetic, and I haven't found anything that could function as wheels (RCT2 had moving wheels on one of the scenary items or something).
-Trolls: Several different kinds would be nice, perhaps those pushing siege towers or grond (in a pushing stance maybe?), as well as battle trolls.
-Orcs: Something close to the terracotta army items from RCT2, these don't necesarily need to closely resemble orcs, but I do need an item that only covers one square and yet fills it with numerous, lined up little soldiers.
-Trebuchets: I used oil derricks in RCT2, no such luck with this game, so for now the trebuchet towers of the city stand empty. Would prefer they take up 4 squares, as that's the size of the treb towers.
-Grond: I could make a completly crap version of it, but it wouldn't do the amazing city justice to see some poorly done battering ram laying outside in the fields.
-Catapults: Mordor's army did have catapults, so these would be a welcome addition.

I have one more request, something I haven't found done yet but I am curious as to if it's possible. I would like to have several rollercoasters serve as nazgul type hypercoasters, diving down on different parts of the city. This will work well with the suspended roller coaster, but I would like to know if it is possible to modify or create new "cars" for the rides. I don't want the "Witchking" to be a train of 5 cars with airplane wings. That said, I wonder if the game allows for a modeler to create his own ride cars. Since I haven't found anything yet that allows for it, I do doubt the ability of this in the game, but I would like someone who knows for sure to tell me.

Thanks for any help offered or tips where to find existing scenary that may resemble what I am looking for. I would have put this in the 6 page stickied thread, but it's an aweful long post for page 6 of a thread. It does seem somewhat selfish of me to ask for a new type of scenary that would only apply to one park, but other things could utilize such new advances I should think.

Actualy, both sides had catapults, in the movie.;)

Well, Gondor had a similar war machine, trebuchets, which use a sling instead of just the throwing dish, but one or the other would be fine for both.
