Announcing the Expo 3000 Set!

The set is now bug-free and ready for download!



Get the Expo 3000 Set HERE (http://sebar.com/shyguy/).

The Space Port acts as the entrance to Wonder World and its first land, Expo 3000.




Most of the scenery pieces were designed for exclusive use for this park, such as the specific attraction signs. But there are also a bunch of all-purpose objects that will be very useful for your own custom parks. Kind of like Marnetmar's Leftovers. I'll post more pics in the following days.

Yay, oh quick question, those large support-thingys on top of space port, are those one piece or many pieces combined? Also, I'm buying Milkshape in a few days(woohoo!) and I was wondering If I could have a few tips with custom scenery from you shyguy...

The long, angled pieces are each one object. There's four 90 degree ones and four 45 degree ones. The vertical pieces are small blocks stacked on top of each other with spire pieces at the top.

As far as tips, I'll gladly give them. But I know nothing about Milkshape.

Here is a pic of the first group of objects that will be in this set.

As you can see, they are just odds and ends...mostly decorative pieces and building blocks. The counter and the door should prove useful to some of you.



More pics coming soon...

This is way more than just odds and ends, Shyguy...

I can think of a million uses for any of those pieces...

This will be a great set... (I have two weeks off from work, and I'm planning a RCT-Marathon, so by all means... Release this!:haha: :haha: )

Just kidding... Enjoy your plum pudding and your eggnog, and the company of family and relatives. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Signs, signs and more signs!

You'll probably have little use for most of these signs, except perhaps the front ones mounted on the wall.:p

Now these will really be helpful!!!

They look Awesome.

Thanks for all your time that you put into this. Your work is outstanding.

Can't wait!!!!!! It would be neat if the wonder world sign could be made with no letters put into place and the diamonds would be large enough to fit Zeppelin's Rockwell Font in there to make a sign that you might need. Would that be possible?? Or even practical?? Even to do the same with the laserium sign. Do the sign but leave the letters off but big enough that the rockwell font would fit.

All these things could be done, but not by me, I'm afraid. The sets I'm making for Wonder World are basically for ME to create my park the way I want. I'm releasing them for 2 reasons...So people can download my park and view it with the scenery in place... and for anyone who would like to use some of the more basic objects that are more versatile for anyone's parks.

As far as combining objects with the Rockwell Letters to make cool signs, I think you'll be able to do that with some of the scenery pieces that will be included in the Main Street Set 3, which will be the next set I'll release.

Signs like the restrooms and food menus would be pretty neat:up:

How did you know, that this are all pieces?

ShyGuy I Hope I Can Download Pack Today I Need It
What did you make all the last days?

Why can't you be more patient. These reminds me to Amazing Earl, one of the best ride creators for RCT2. He has lost the lust to create more rides for the community because anyone bother him with questions like the both above. If Shyguy think, the pack is ready for download, he will release it, otherwise you have to wait.

Well Said RTC-Spanky... I wait... maybe impatiently, but I wait. I know its not easy to create these things. Thats why I continue to thank the Designer Peeps who create scenery. They make our RTC3 modeling that much more enjoyable.

Those roof edges are (as FoxRogue said) from the Soaked! expansion. Just to clarify: Look under Office Walls...

Guess what everybody. The Expo 3000 Set is finished and ready for download!! :D

At present, it is only available at Rapidshare, but I will have it up at my mirror site shortly, for those who have trouble with Rapidshare.


The pack is no longer available at this time due to a couple of issues. It will be available again shortly once these issues have been resolved.



The majority of these pieces should cause no problems, as I have kept the file sizes and polygon counts low.
But....There are a few pieces that have very large texture files which will use up a lot of memory. These are mostly the signs, so I doubt you will be using many, if any at all, in your parks.

There is one piece that I think you WILL use that has a large texture file. It is the multi-colored floor tile. I have created a second version of it, that references the first, which makes it a tiny file and it shouldn't cause any problems. Both files are included as I don't know any other way to do it. They are marked accordingly in the set.

Have fun and let me know if you have any problems.

Love The colorations on the Mosaic and other pices where you select one color and a matching range of values are updated automatically. This is pretty cool.

I was hoping that the Wall caping (as seen on the trim of all the roofs in your Wonder Wold Pictures) would be available in this pack. :(

For those of you thinking about downloading... Dont think. DO IT!

There were some crashing problems with some of the pieces. The lockers crashed mine too, once. So did some other pieces. I know how to fix this, so I will re-import the lockers and post the updated file real soon.

Then, please let me know if this fixes the problem.

Umm...

It has gone through a LOT of testing and it doesn't crash on my set. Other users have already posted pics of their parks using this set and it's not crashing their parks. I only have one computer and I can only test it on that one. I can't guarantee it's going to work for everyone. But please don't tell me I'm not spending enough time on this.

Also, there's no way I can fix something if you don't give me enough info for me to troubleshoot with.

So, if anyone has problems with this, post here or PM me and tell me specifically what problem you're having and what you do exactly that leads to the problem. And please be sure you have it installed correctly first.

sorry if you found my stuff to be rude I know you worked a lot on this and that you tested it a lot but its just it really seems like you are going to fast you made 4 scenery sets in less than 3 months and I think you really should spend a lot more time to test it and try to get a wide range of people to do it. Anyways I will tell you each piece I was useing when it crased. The first time I placed some of the tile floor and 2 lockers and it crashed second time I place 9-10 lockers before it chrashed and 2 doors and 2 mens and ladies room sign. the third time I had about 10-15 lockers more floor the mens and ladies room doors and 20-25 normal walls. please dont get me wrong I think your sets are great and I know you work hard on them but I think you should test it more before release.

The pack has been temporaily made unavailable for download. If you've read through the posts, some players are having some problems. I have also discovered a missing piece which is pretty important. I will add that piece and then test this pack some more.

Please, let me know if anyone else is having problems. If I don't hear anything, i will assume everything is okay and the problems are user specific and not problems with the pack.

Remember, custom scenery packs might not work for everyone, depending on the type of graphics card you have, or the amount of memory, etc. If a certain object causes problems, don't use it. As I stated above, some of the objects have high texture files and could be memory hogs, which can cause crashes on lower end machines. If trying to add custom scenery to large parks, this could also cause crashes, as the engine can only handle so much. The multi-colored floor tile is one of those objects. The referenced version got left out of this pack, and needs to be put back in. So I reccommend everyone replace the version they have now with the new, updated version that I'll release very soon.

Again, please, if you have problems, let me know and give specifics to the circumstances, so I can better troubleshoot the problem.

Magnum
12-29-2005, 04:41 AM
The first time I tried the set it crashed, but it was not the lockers... I think I just had put down the PNP Eye wall and some counters... Then I played for an hour without a crash, testing every single piece... No problems!

I'll mess around with it some more, until the second version (with the missing piece) is released, and see if I have any difficulties...

And it makes me sad when I see people post that Shyguy doesn't spend enough time testing and working on his projects... To me it seems that is all he do... So, thanks again Shyguy! Your stuff is what makes this game go 'round...

I have found out if one of the pieces required high memory which it is more chance crash on your computer, it is depend how powerful computer you got.

Argonath is one I might not able to release it at all because it is deadly high memory because of 512x512 textures. my computer almost can manage it till many rides added.

I haven't chance download it, but dunno if it is working on mine.

As I read about the problems and that you made it temporaily unavailable, I will wait until you have fixed any problems and be still unkissed for this time:(

I am not complaining about how much he works on his scenery I am just complaing on how much he gets it in the game most of his scenery has bugs right now because IMO he was trying to work to fast so he made great sets just when he got them in it didnt go in right. I am just a little mad because the set made my game crash and I lost a hours worth of work.

I am not complaining about how much he works on his scenery I am just complaing on how much he gets it in the game most of his scenery has bugs right now because IMO he was trying to work to fast so he made great sets just when he got them in it didnt go in right. I am just a little mad because the set made my game crash and I lost a hours worth of work.

Welcome to the community! It happens. Things don't always work out and people lose stuff. I've lost a whole park once, but I re-did it, and it turned out better.

I'm not gonna let a little bug make me mad, Shyguy does his best. You try to make a pack in a couple of weeks. then you'll see how hard Shyguy works!

Not trying to be mean or anything, but please have some respect.

hiimmisterdude,

I don't think the Expo 3000 Set alone caused your game to crash. Custom scenery takes up more memory than the regular objects in RCT3. If you use a lot of it, you will run out of memory, and your system will crash. Everyone's system is different.




Which leads me to this decision...

When game companies put out their games, they list minimum and recommended system requirements. I'm going to have to do the same. Since I have no idea what the range of system requirements would be, all I can do is list MY system's specs as the recommended requirements. If your system doesn't meet these requirements, then you might not be able to use my sets. Sorry.

So far, I can find nothing wrong with the Expo Set. Most of the files in it, with a few exceptions, are much smaller than my previous sets. If you are using my previous sets a lot, you have a much bigger risk of having problems than if you are just using this one. My earlier sets WILL be updated, eventually. For now, you should not use them, or at least do so with moderation. And that goes for any custom set. The more you put into a park, the more it will bog down your system. This is in no way my fault. It was how the game was designed. Even the most powerful computers will eventually crash if your park gets too big.

With that said, unless I get a lot more people having problems with this set, I will make it available very soon.

The recommended requirements for this pack are a high end graphics card with 256 mb of memory, and a Pentium 4, or it's equivalent, with 2 gigs of RAM. That's what I have. If you have less than that, use this, and all my packs, with discretion and moderation.

12-29-2005, 02:40 PM
I have a high end card, 512 mb ram, and an AMD athalon 2.0 ghz processor, and your mainstreet sets work for me. I haven't tried this set yet tho.

hiimmisterdude
12-29-2005, 02:50 PM
aw mine is only 1 gig a ram and 2 ghz I have a AMD athlon(tm) XP 2900+. But shyguy still your other mainstree 2 set works perfectly fine besides the draw distance its this one that crashes me to desktop which is a nightmare.

Maybe you havn't heard, that you can save your game from time to time. If you save your game you don't must rebuild the whole park, just the few things, that you build 'til your last save.

I can understand, that you angry, but if you think it really over, it's your own guilty, that you have lost your park. If you use custom scenery parts, you do it on your own risk. Unfortunaltly Shyguy and all the other scenery creators have not a whole arsenal of computers to check the scenery on every single systemconfiguration.

That's really stupid. Everyone cries that he want this scenery as fast as possible, but when it is release and the game crashes, the same people yell again. Strange world.

@all scenery creators: I suggest to send your next scenery-parts to some selected users for testing, before you release it.

I still don't know why this is happening. Maybe your graphics card doesn't have enough memory. Or maybe 1gig of RAM is not enough. It could just be that you're nearing your memory limit, and this set just put you over the edge. Just don't use it, and continue building your park. You might find that it still eventually crashes. All I can do is wait to see if anyone else has this problem.

anyway, great work on this; i have already used it a lot!

Thanks for the input Cyberleader and flaminlambo. I'm glad everyone is not having trouble. Which shows it may have nothing to do with my set. All systems are different. I'll wait a little longer to see what other input I get from the community, and then I'll post the set back up.

And let's stop picking on hiimmisterdude. The pack isn't working for him, and I don't blame him for being upset.

I have had a couple of crashes while trying to use the Expo set today... And this was in a completetely "barren" sandbox... I downloaded the first version, before the "locker fix" (though to me it seems as if it's no particular piece that is causing the crashes).

About your thoughts on graphic cards and RAM... I find I'm a bit confused. My computer runs a 64MB card, with 512MB RAM, so it is far below your recommended specs, Shyguy... (and lately Windows has been complaining about a shortage of virtual memory...) BUT... I have soon completed my Lakeview park (check in the Parks forum), which is almost exclusively built with Main Street packs 1 & 2, as well as Iceatcs' Timberframes, and when I play that park the game lags a lot, but it has never crashed...

So I really don't know what to make of this... I was really looking forward to the Expo set, since I intended to use it in my "Futura Fair", but now I feel reluctant to do so. What would be your advice and what do you make of my confusion...:eek: ...?

I think your Custom Scenery is what is keeping me so "in love" with RCT3, despite all the issues with the game. And like someone in love, I do not want those feelings to end... I want to continue to use your scenery...

Maybe I should just buy a new graphics card and double/triple the RAM... (as if I can afford that right now, with a son and a greedy ex-girlfriend...:D )

Well, well... Your hard work is deeply appreciated and I hope this problem will solve itself somehow... Or I'll have to wait until Main Street 3 is released...:haha: ...

This is very confusing for me too, guys. I used a new technique when importing the files, refered to as referencing. This is a feature in jonwil's importer to keep the files sizes really small. I think this is causing the problems. I was having a lot of crashes on my computer, too. But I managed to fix things and stop the crashes, at least for me.
I posted a thread, discussing the problem with jonwil, but he couldn't seem to recreate the problem for himself, so he's not been able to do anything about it.
This is very disturbing for me, as I've used the same method on most of the Main Street Set 3. I've had no crashes using that set, but I have no idea how it will work for others. I hope jonwil and the other scenery designers are reading this, but they've all been very quiet.
I'm not sure what to do at this point. I do think it is a memory problem, and anyone with anything less than 1 gig of memory will probably have more problems.

I could be wrong about this. Who knows? :bulb:

Anyway, I've managed to get another crash using the diamonds and the basic 3H wall. And I think I've fixed it. It definitely has to do with referencing system.

Do me a favor, Weasel, if you will. Open up the scenerio editor or a new sandbox park, or even a park in progress. Just place a bunch of diamonds (both sizes) and pan around a bit. Then place a bunch of basic walls. My computer crashed every time. Maybe not right away, but pretty soon after. See if this happens to you.

And, if anyone else would like to do this and let me know the results, it would be VERY helpful for me.

Looking through some scenery that came with RCT3 and through the Expo 3000 set, I noticed that your pieces have really small file sizes... Could this be a problem? Most of the "pre-made" stuff have file sizes around 300-600 kb, Yours are 1 kb (most of them) I'm no expert, but maybe the small file size is the problem...

Small sizes is NOT the problem, it's the solution. Atari game pieces are close to the same size 1kb. That means large parks, very little memory required. He just happened to run into a quirk. Hope it can be solved and shared with other creators.

I hope you get this set working shyguy threes are some pieces in hear that seam to be very useful. I haven’t tried the set yet but with only a 128mb video card and 512 ram I have had no problems with your other sets. The only thing that I can see that can be causing you the problems are the references will working on my scenery I tried the texture referencing option and I had some problems (ex. The piece with the texture would be recoverable but the piece that referenced wouldn’t be recoverable it would just stay be black with no paint bucket to change the cooler). My only suggestion would be to try a set that doesn’t use references. I gust hope we can sort out these reference problems because it would save a lot of memory and decrees lag in the game.

The set works fine for me, I'm making a park with buildings entirely made from this set, and the park hasn't crashed once. Well, it has crashed, but not because of Shyguy's scenery.

Shyguy, I took a look at the ovl files for this set to see if I could see anything that was wrong.
But, in order to continue diagnosis, I would like to see the current "WIP" ovl files (i.e. where you fixed the issue you mentioned with the 3h wall etc) for comparison. And also (if you are prepared to do that), the "source files" (i.e. the .scn files) for the scenery items. I think I know why the reference stuff is failing, if I can get that stuff, I might be able to identify further.

Email it to jonwil@tpgi.com.au if you want me to look at it and try to solve the problems for you.

shyguy
12-30-2005, 08:58 PM
I have removed the referencing from all the objects that seemed to be causing the crashes.

The Big Diamond was being used as a reference.
The Lockers piece (not corners) was being used as a reference.
The 3H Basic Wall was being used as a reference.

These were the pieces that were crashing the game. The pieces that referenced these objects, didn't seem to cause the crashes.

Now, I am not getting any crashes on my system. There are still some pieces that are being referenced, but they haven't caused any crashes yet, for some reason.

The Space Port Spire piece (the vertical, 90 degree, blocky one) is being used as a reference for all the other Spire pieces. I haven't had any trouble with that piece.

Below is the updated set. Anyone who would like to test it for me, please do. A simple test is to just place a bunch of the same piece down, change colors, rotate the camera around a bit, wait...and then do the same with another piece. If there's a bad piece, the game will crash very soon after it is placed.



Expo 3000 Set (http://rapidshare.de/files/10133134/shy-Expo_3000_Set.zip.html)



jonwil,

Glad to hear you're looking into this. You can download the above file and compare it to the first set. As for the .scn files, I don't ever save to that format when creating my sets. It seemed superfluous to me and I wasn't sure what the purpose was to do that. Let me know if you need anything else and I will be happy to comply.

Also, I changed the file names of the 3 pieces in question to make sure they weren't being referenced by an object I didn't remember.

"wall basic' is now 'wall basic3'
'diamond big' is now 'diamond big2'
'lockers' in now 'lockersnew'

Thanks for hosting this, but.... This was for testing only. I think the updated set is okay, but I'm not making any statements just yet. And the only link I'm putting up will be from MY mirror site. I don't mind that you have a link, although you didn't ask for permission first, which is common protocol. But the only link I will put up on the first page will be mine.

Everything looks great. This set let me finally finish the map on this scenario. I had been strugling with how to do what I had in mind until I started playing with this set. What I didn't use to build the structure I did place in the crater and let the game run wiht about 950 guests in the park. It ran for about 18 hours with no problems.

shyguy
01-02-2006, 02:39 PM
Well, it looks like all the bugs have been removed and the set is ready for general release. Thanks to everyone who took the time to test this for me and apologies for those who were inconvienenced by the initial release.

As always Shyguy...excellent work.

All you great scenery folks are keeping me up late nights now....LOL JK.

Actually we are living in very grand RCT3 times. Couple all of your work with Frontier's stuff and no single word can describe the gold RCT3 has become.

Anyhow thanks a very big thanks ShyGuy for this marvelous expansion pack.

I am unaware of any scenery packs that have yet to be updated to work with Wild! (now that I went through and updated them all :)
All of the ones I have (including all of shyguys packs) work just fine with Wild!.
In fact, unless someone is still using a really old scenery importer (which I doubt would be the case), any newly made scenery will work with Wild!.

Did you download the latest version? There were problems originally but it looks like his fixes worked for everyone else that was having crashes before.

Your building looks great the only suggestion I would have is to change the colors of the custom stalls the yellow and red doesn't fit with all the blue and white.

W1ckeD
01-03-2006, 04:20 PM

Yes i did.
I copied the new version over the old version.
Or should i delete the whole set and then put the new version in?

It's probably best to delete the old version before installing the new one.

Marnetmar got to it before I got the email notification but I have found you are always better off deleting the old custom scenery file before installing an update to it.

shyguy
01-03-2006, 08:56 PM
Yes, if you don't delete the old set, it leaves some of the old corrupted files that were originally being referenced, which would continue to crash your system.

I would definitely replace it. There are several files with new names, so if you download or upload any parks using the set, they won't be compatible with players who have the new version. Be sure to delete the set completely before installing the new one.

shyguy
01-08-2006, 03:07 AM
In the "themed" folder, you should see the Expo Folder. Open the Expo folder and you should see another Expo folder and 2 files.

If you don't see 2 files and you open the second Expo folder to find another Expo folder and the 2 files, then you've got too many folders. This is the most common reason for getting the error you're getting.

Fix this so there are only 2 Expo folders. The first one and the one inside with the 2 files. The 2nd folder will contain all the rest of the files.

I'm having problems with a certain item in this pack... The "gateway gifts sign" i think is crashing my system, i'm not sure it's that piece but i tried to place it and it worked, then i rotated the screen and it crashed as i was doing that and scrolling through the set... could you look into this?

shyguy
02-02-2006, 04:34 AM
weasel497,

I checked out that piece and it's not being referenced. It has a large texture (1meg) which could cause problems if you're low on memory. Re-boot and try again and see if that helps.

Hello ShyGuy,

I am kind of new to this forum even though I been using RCT3 for a while now. But I must say there are a handful of you guys here that really know how to create beautiful parks. That Wonder World entrance you created is nothing short of astounding. Equally astounding is that you create custom scenery packages. I am very interested in the custom tables you have created as seen in the picture above. However, I am not sure which of your packages the tables are a part of. Is it the Expo 3000 pack that is mentioned a few times here? Could you give me a link where I can get the pack?

Thank You,

JG

Don't mean to sound all snobbish and over fussy and correct. That wasn't my intention. But I have seen it many times over and over again with those that come to these forums and do not use proper spelling and grammar and usually someone comes along and rips them a new ...well you know what.

Well, I got tromped on for much less in the past and usually the rules for every forum is different. So that makes it worse. Take this one for example. The mods HATE double posting. However there is a problem with the way this forum works and it times out way to fast. So when you sign your post back in, you don't know if it took or not. So many times I reposted not knowing my original post went through.

So...to all...I don't mean to sound snobbish. I am just watching my step, that is all.

I wish I knew how you were making them, I would love to help you make more buildings if I had the tools to build it.. kick ass job though so far man. you should finish main street then maybe start on tomorrowland. Space mountain and innoventions should be fun. More importantly, Fantasyland will be great to make. I really could use some 30 degree walls. Let me know how I can help if your still doing it.

Okay, sorry to bump old threads, but I have a problem. I have the stuff and everything, but when I load it, when it gets on Activate Objects, it stops at 53%. I waited a long time, and it still said 53%. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

When I get on Activate Objects at 53%, it freezes.

shyguy
10-14-2006, 12:14 AM
Are you talking about the park file or trying to use the scenery?

If you answer the question, we can help you. If it's the scenery pack, you may have it installed wrong. If it's the park file, it may be because you don't have enough memory. In either case, try hitting the space key when it freezes and see if continues loading after that. You may also need to have Soaked and Wild for Expo 3000 (the park) to run.

KiDFoX
10-14-2006, 09:00 AM
Yeah, like Shyguy said...

I am not following what you are trying to do. When you say load game are you just trying to open a new sandbox park or are you opening ShyGuys expo park? Can you open a blank park OK or does it get stuck with blank parks as well?

There are a lot of things that could be going on depending on what you are actually trying to do here.

I am off to ValleyFair! again but someone can answer I am sure if I miss your answer.

Thanks, shyguy. You have been helpful.

I press the space bar, then it moves, but then I get the message "We're sorry, RCT3 has encountered a problem and needs to close." I have installed the scenery, I put the music in My Documents RCT3 Folder, I have put the pics in My Pictures. What am I doing wrong?

shyguy
11-19-2006, 08:42 PM
Sometimes you have to download the file twice. The first time seems to cut off prematurely. If you immediately try again, it usually works fine. It will ask to overwrite the first file and be sure to say "yes".
