Item Descriptions
================================
-Every Item Is Saved As A 3x3 Square
-Every Item Only Takes Up A 1x1 Square

*Please See Corresponding Picture
For Reference*
--------
Item #1: This is a 'Corner Piece' so-to-speak and can be used
as diagonal fillers on the outside curves of wooden
coasters -- or -- can be doubles on the same square
to form a full box. (Item #3)
Saved As: Tyc00n10s-Wooden-Supports-Box-Corner.dat

--------
Item #2: This is an 'Edge' Piece. It serves as a filler for any
gaps or as a standalone item.
Saved As: Tyc00n10s-Wooden-Supports-Box-Edge.dat

--------
Item #3: The 'Full Box' is the most versitile, and probably most
used piece in the pack. It is the heart and soul for every
wooden support your coaster desires.
Saved As: Tyc00n10s-Wooden-Supports-Box-Full.dat

--------
Item #4: This is the 'Top Piece'. It will cap off every support.
Can also be used standalone, or directly ontop of footer.
Saved As: Tyc00n10s-Wooden-Supports-Box-Top.dat

--------
Item #5: The most used piece in the pack. The 'Footer'. This goes
everywhere on the coaster. Not much more can be said.

This package was created entirely by Tyc00n10, with Shygy's Alpine
Village Set. All ideas (from this package) are originals, and should
not be copied in any way or form without consent of the creator. Shyguy
was kind enough to release this set for villages, I have created with
my imaginative mind, these supports, and are now free for all of you
to use. I hope you enjoy the kit.

Now all your parks can be graced with my generous, and versitile support work! :D This would not have been possible without Shyguy's pack. A round of applause for him. :up: Enjoy!

Really clever use of Alpine Scereny Pack. These will definately come in handy.

Excellent job - brilliant idea, tyc00n10! I'm sure everyone will get a lot of use out of this. :up: :up:

Glad to see you guys like this pack so far. I need suggestions as to what I should make for a second pack. I know it is versitle and all, but I think it needs more.

-Should I make them in different colors (like browns/whites)?
-Should there be any more pieces added to the pack?
-Should I try to make it as custom scenery?
(I would make this as custom scenery pieces, but I have minimal knowledge of doing so.)

I've seen this pack used by a few of the users on here in some of the more recent parks and it does fit very nicely with how they have used it. Thanks for downloading the pack. Suggestions are welcome to improve the pack.

I really dont know what to suggest. This is great btw. Is there any way to delete the origional supports though? That would help these new supports look more natural.

Edit: well, actually, it would be nice to have diagonal pieces, if that is possible. Maybe we could get shyguy to make some new pieces for this purpose.

The only thing that I can think of is to have supports that are equal in angle to a lift hill and a steep hill. This way they can go right up under the track. I haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but I'm sure it's very nice!

So you can either Bury 1/4 tile rocks (or other scenery) under the supports, or just leave them as the "core" of the supports, and then "frame" around them with the pieces.

Diagonal pieces are not currently possible with the alpine set. There are simply no diagonal pieces :bored:. The only way I could think of doing that is attempting custom scenery (its too complicated for me right now). Or maybe Jcat could make "Woodworx" and have woodie supports, tunnels, and all sorts of other cool stuff :D

Hmm... thats not entirely necessary, but I could see if you wanted wood supports on a steel coaster. Best bet is to just leave the central supports from the game, and build around them. I may possibly make a pack with around 10 pieces, including your angled suggestions, in about 3 different colors. So 30 structures... ugh... I should just make custom scenery.

Does anybody want these in Light Brown, White, Black, Etc.?
Thanks for taking the time to check it out.

For colors, that'd be very nice for multiple themes. Dark Blue, Dark Green, Dark Red, Black, White, Light Brown, the whole Sha-Bang!

Oh, the new trackbeds scenery has a woodie support killer that works, but you have to put it right under the track, but these supports cover it up pretty well.

Shouldnt this be in the Custom Scenery Forum??

These are "structures" built from "custom scenery" - so it should mainly be here... but soon, the pack will be fully custom sceneryized, along with a nice support killer, much like The Cooks. His new trackbed set is great. I actually got my hands on it the other day.

-I actually have in fact tried to start custom scenery with this. I am so far able to get an item into the game (which is good), but apparently 1 square (1m x 1m) in 3DS Max is 1/8 of a tile in RCT3.... somehow, thats just not right.
I just need to get the scaling up to par. Ill be making pre-built pieces (this pack), and then include other various items appropriate for a wooden coaster.

-The pack will be called "Wooden Mayhem" - and has absolutley no scehduled release date, mainly because I really need to learn the basics of scenery creation.

I thank you for downloading this, but this may become obsolete in a while :p. And if any of you scenery creators have the idea to use my -mayhem prefix, I would advise strongly against it. (Unless your pack astronomically blows mine out of the water :haha:) Thanks again! Hopefully I will screenshots of my progress. (But that may be after my school schedule ends on June 14th).

Not to put down your work, but these supports really sucked. Here is what I came up with and I personaly find them a little bit more of a classical look.

Hah... um thanks? I do appreciate you input though. Its always good to have, pros and cons. But can you elaborate on why they suck? :p Is it because they are structures? or because of the 'classical' look? etc.

However, as I stated in the previous messages, I will be making this as scenery pieces - as soon as I figure out the appropriate scaling in 3DS max, and when my school finals are over. So by the summer, I should have some sort of models of appropriate size in the game. I have the box models, and footer models already imported, as well as a pack made, but nothing is to scale. Still trying to figure out the basics of 3d Modeling.

Thanks to all who have downloaded and enjoyed. :D

Your support's have no meat on them. Personaly, I just think that they look like twigs. I'm not trying to put you down of anything but I think that vercital beams in Skyguys Alpine Pack work just fine for supporting wooden roller coasters.

That an also your box supports look to tall. They look about 1 & 1/3 unit high and I think they look more realistic when they are 1unit high.

And I mean once again you have a really good concept here. I took your idea and fixed it around a little bit and thus you get what I posted in that picture . . .

But by all means go for it, it's always good to have more then one way to support a coaster. :noob:

Umm, Maxamillion, he did make those out of the Alpine Village Set. As you see here:

1. Roller Coaster Tycoon 3
2. Shyguy's Alpine Village Set

So, unless I'm missing something, your pretty much using sHyguy's set, just used in structural form.
