One thing I do have a problem with......


The tallest one.... It gets to the top and almost immediately drops. It should hold it there for at least 4 seconds before falling.

CedarPointer
07-19-2008, 10:06 PM
^Also, they (at least the Moser Rides one I've been on) rise to the top a lot quicker; they go back up as quick as they fall after the first drop.

Yup. And they also rise to the middle of the tower and drop you after you do the first full plunge.

THat one is different then the ones ive been on but... :p

Would it be possible if you could do a 45 degree rotation on the rides? That would make it completely awesome and make it looks more realistic...


anyway, EXCELLENT job on these. I wanted one for so long and now I have something to put in my park.

Thank you.

CedarPointer
07-19-2008, 11:37 PM
^Imho, 6 entries would be a bit much to add into the thrill rides menu- imagine when it will be like the Generic Walls menu. ;) That would, however, be great for a Busch Gardens style ride.

Thankyou Fisherman, Something i wanted to acomplish was to create new Kiddie Rides for Rct3, Something it really lacks.

Thanks for making this also making a seperate download... i tried it and it works great but only thing is it disappears when u zoom out a bit..... but it works great...looking forward to what u come up with next.

If you set your LOD's Higher It wont dissapear as fast.

One thing I do have a problem with......


The tallest one.... It gets to the top and almost immediately drops. It should hold it there for at least 4 seconds before falling.

The one i was basing my version off Does not hold. The system they use is a lock and unlock system which when it reaches the top point it Drops instantly. Nearly all drop towers use this system. Theres nearly no rides that "actually" stop but slow down to a really slow speed. But mine does slow but it drops instantly Like a video i took the idea from.:up:

^Also, they (at least the Moser Rides one I've been on) rise to the top a lot quicker; they go back up as quick as they fall after the first drop.

I wanted the Feeling Of Suspense and not fast, thats why i kept the speed really slow for the larger version.:up:

Yup. And they also rise to the middle of the tower and drop you after you do the first full plunge.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=vfV-M7gCho0
^^^^
That one is different then the ones ive been on but... :p

That is running on a different sequence to most of them. Thats running on "Frogger Bounce". I didn't want that for the large version but more of a free fall drop with the mini suspension bounce in it:up:

^Click this then click on "Spring Ride", there is a video of it. (http://www.moserrides.com/funnyrides/funny-rides.htm#)

Also, draw distance should be made further imo.

If you all look closely at the video you can see one of the Springs running on the same type of sequence that i recreated for my versions.
Finally!A frog hopper!Why didn't they put one in the game in the first place!lol.Downloading now.

You would have thought they would have but they may have had the problem like i did with them being 2x2.

Would it be possible if you could do a 45 degree rotation on the rides? That would make it completely awesome and make it looks more realistic...


anyway, EXCELLENT job on these. I wanted one for so long and now I have something to put in my park.

Thank you.
its possible but i didn't want to clutter up the Ride catergorys with the same rides.

^Imho, 6 entries would be a bit much to add into the thrill rides menu- imagine when it will be like the Generic Walls menu. ;) That would, however, be great for a Busch Gardens style ride.

Wow, I am very happy for you from made the real rides. Good Job and I got download and look much best.

I don't think it would clutter it up, but that's just me. And i respect your opinion.

I was merely asking if it were possible or not.:)

^^ As I said, do you think the generic walls is cluttered and hard to find things in? That is what the rides menus will be like if we have 6 of each ride. ;)

Yes some one spotted this just the other day. It seems to happen with most C-flat rides. Even Heave Ho seems to have a limit to it. I am not to sure at the moment what the problem is thats causing this, I shall try and find out and get fixes done. :up:
I am guessing its to do with collision heights i have put on them which i find really annoying to try and get right.

Hi, I have a problem with the Hopper, Spring Rides and Rockin' Pirate Ship.

Hopper has power box but there are no power box for spring rides?

Please let me know you can fix it.

First i did not put mechanic power boxes on the other two as i could not find a place/ area which is easyily accesbile so i use the left saftey piston on both the springs. ( Those boxes are not necessary only for show in rct3)

The Dissapearing: Those are your Ride LOD settings the higher you have them the further out you can go before it dissapears.

As for lights. I did not want to put any lights on these as i always hated the rides having ingame lights however, With the new light changer by errt i suppose adding them and being able to turn them off will be possible now.
Heave Ho Does not and Wont have lights on it as the real ones dont have lights on at all.
I might not add lights to the Kiddie Hopper as they dont usualy have emitant lights on but a 2 strips of flashing lights down the sides. So it is actually possible to make CS overlays to these 3 new flat rides and use animated "lit_" textures acting as lights similar to vodhins string light set.

There may be V1.2's of all of these sometime in the future when i have chance to fix them but i am currently very busy out of the rct3 world at the moment.:down:

Apologies about using a .Png for my first thread image it was just that the software i was using at the time only exported the Png. image file type so i was stuck.
However i quoted only 2 pictures by accident as you may notice i did delete most of them, but those two that were left did not work for me and i could not remove them they were just blank? I dont know why it was only those two images.

awesome stuff! When did creating custom flats become available? this makes rct3 10x better now! (in my eyes :D)

How long did it take you to create these?

CedarPointer
07-26-2008, 07:00 PM
The Dissapearing: Those are your Ride LOD settings the higher you have them the further out you can go before it dissapears.

The only problem with the LODs is that when I zoom out enough (yes, my LODs are all the way up), it disappears, instead of becoming less detailed. *Makes it a bit tough for flyover or skyline shots. ;) *

You can always turn up the geometric imposter distance, mine is 500.

Also, on my youtube page (shown in signature) I posted a video of the flat rides available (yours and belgabors) and I gave credit.

I would like to see some greater LOD's. I have mine at 1,500 (max) and it disappears too quickly. I'll live though.

One thing I did notice is that for some reason, peeps will queue, and when they are able to be seated, a few just leave the ride altogether, and the queue line will occasionally empty when this happens. Not to big, it does fix itself occasionally. Just something to keep in mind.

TPM INC
07-30-2008, 09:58 PM
No ttd rox you place right there at style

Well LtG really the LOD only helps it out by such a small amount that if you keep increasing it (I think above 300 nothing will happen).

I have never seen the peep problem before that sounds very strange and i dont think its anything to do with the ride itself as the queing is not controlled by the ride. If the peeps are "kids" that may be why as they cannot ride as it is set that way:up:

As For LODs i will get something sorted at some point for all those requesting higher LODs.

Imagineer John you have done some great work...from what I know only 3 people have succeeded with animiting rides....I have to say you have done a great job. I seen in one of your posts you mention possible future suprises which I am sure we are all looking forward too. I dunno what you have planned next but maybe one day you will be able to accomplish one of these well known attractions.....keep up the great work :)

You should put it in themed because that is where everything goes into if it is custom scenery or custom flat rides

In your style folder you should make a map called 'custom'.
Place the map called 'ImagineerJohn' in it.

These are fantastic. Excellent work. I did notice though that these are the closest ride design to remaking "The Hollywood Tower Hotel" Ride. If i knew anything about coding i would give it ago but these are still great rides and i cant wait to use em.

Thanks for all the hard work.
