Im not all that great at making buildings, but its nice to have a coaster station at every roller coaster. If anyone has any cool Station designs please post them here.

Thanks

Just work at it a bit and use your imagination. It'll turn out fine in the end.

Froggy, who is Dave all about? Is it Blower? :p

Blower is an Eric. Daves suffer constant ridicule in today's society - and this experience allows other people to.....um.....experience the horrors that Daves must go through.

Mind you, they do deserve it.

:D :D :D
I am looking forward to this - though having been teased as a kid, I pretty much remember the feeling. :bulb:

I believe that ride has only one-track, goes in circles, has often bizarre elements, and refuses to acknowledge the laws of science.

In addition, you have to sit next to someone who claims to be your uncle. He has an "Unfortunate swelling".

Ah yes, I'd forgotten that design feature..:bulb:

I suppose it's better sitting next to him, than having him sit behind you at least..;)

Guys, can't you keep the spamming to the RCT CC? You're hijacking the kids question...
Nuance, every coaster is unique in it's layout and space available for a structure. It's recommendd that you play with it, make mistakes, learn and improve from them. There are tutorials in Strategies that can help with building anything onc you understand the basics.

this thread is a useful idea for opening the door to more coaster station prefabs, also include what track type it's meant for if it is not obvious, here im guessing some kind of B&M type coaster like SFGA's Batman-The Ride.

Dave, back to the point at hand; cool you shared a picture, did you put up a download cause if you did, I can't find it; if not could you ??

Thanks :confused:

I don't know how people can do that; I have to make individual stations based on the situation the coaster is in.

It's an on-going project. It will appear.....one day...

I made a station for The Rock one day. It was about a month ago so I don't remember what CS I used. Most of it is Shyguy's and Vodhin's. Nothing fancy.

First time I've ever uploaded anything, hope it all worked. Sorry I don't remember what all CS I used. There were lights but they didn't save with the file. Three files - Base, Ceiling, Roof. Everything should be the right height.

CS I know I used: Rockwall, Shyguy's Main 1 and 3, Shyguy Circus, RCGS Set (Belgabor), Aceana's Pavement Essentials Expanded
I don't remember where the counters came from.

My advice for you is to keep it simple and let your imagination run wild, play with a few things and test different style and techniques. Don't be afraid to use more than one scenery pack, that's actually a good thing.

Hope this isn't Necrothreadya (sp?). This isn't too bad an idea, but instead of posting for downloads, just post pics, this can show great building/station creativity, plus help people come up with new ideas/solutions.
