It's done! Hoorah and stuff! Remember to read the Read Me I have included in the file, as some of you may not have downloaded a CFR before, and it explains where this needs to go!

ORIGINAL POST:

For now, here's a picture of the Pirate Ship that'll be released soon for your peeps to ride soon! It was modelled by myself, with Imagineer John doing the animation etc.

http://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t189/Jonnyears/Shot0528.jpg

The blue, red, and green areas are recolourable and it'll hold 32 peeps.

Before the final, working ride gets imported, I wanted to get any comments that you may have so that I can improve the model before there's no going back!

good job.....the only thing is the loading station it looks alittle plain personally....i dunno what else u have planned...but everything else looks good.

This is awesome! I love Pirate ship rides! It looks really good so far, and I am really sure it will come in handy.

But one thing I dont like is how the recolorable parts are so bright, mabey dim them down juts alittle.

If I'm not mistaken, someone else was working on a similar project. But you seem to be further ahead. It looks amazing! Much more realistic than the Atari one! I agree with simtanic8 though; would it be possible to dim down the colors? The current colors don't seem to fit with the RCT3 harmony too well. Other than that, I have no complaints. Swinging ships are staple rides of any park, this one will definitely be useful for all of us!

The colors are perhaps a bit too vivid, at least for this ride. And the loading area is somewhat plain; not that it would be the biggest deal to me. Making a CFR is hard enough, I don't want to make it harder for you. The ride itself is really good, and it looks very realistic. It's much better than the one in RCT3 right now, so I think it will get a lot of usage.

I would add some texture to the supports (red part). It looks to bright. Maybe add a ruff texture to it to look a little older.

It's an excellent model, but is that really the texture you want for a pirate ship?

The colors are very bright and the textures aren't very realistic. I know nothing about modeling and making these things though so i can't really help you any further.

i is guessing you are making the short stumpy version and not the big version :

if you are making the bigger version there is something which makes it look strange...

look cool.. but seen like a ramp has slope over and need to make ramp correct and include the fence by the ramp.

Pirate Ship need to put spot around the galleon with the window, cannon, mast, crow's nest, captain cabin, anchor, helm wheel, and anything that look very best.

08-20-2008, 05:09 AM
It looks great Jonnyears! My only critique is the platform. The texture looks all stretched out and fake and the steps or step looks a little odd. Maybe try to simulate the platform in the second picture Stu posted. But other than that, I think this looks really nice and I'm glad we can have a generic swinging ship instead of a pirate one all the time.

Yes; finally someone has created a better pirate ship:D
It looks really good, but I think there are some things that could could change.


It would look much better if there was a mast in the middle of the boat, but I have no idea of, if it's too hard to do make one.
I don't think the texture on the boat itself fits with the rest of the ride. I find it a little blurry looking while the steel construction is perfectly sharp.

that looks pretty sweet but someone else is making one to but this looks very realistic and I like it better than the other one. (No offense Xav_Sk ;))

Hello again, everyone! Thanks for all the positive comments. I really didn't know what I needed to do to improve the model but thanks to you, I have lots of new ideas! :) Now, onto answering questions, don't be offended if I haven't replied to you directly, I'm sure your answer will be found somewhere in this post!

good job.....the only thing is the loading station it looks alittle plain personally....i dunno what else u have planned...but everything else looks good.

I was planning to make the loading station as plain as possible really, because then, you can easily customise it with all the released custom scenery sets. I was just planning to do the ramp/stairs to get onto the boat, and then you can build it up how you want with CS. That's not to say that I wont be adding more details now to the platform, as suggested in other comments.

Also.. here's an idea! If you use the tool to have invisible paths, it's very possible to make this just like the real ones, with a hole in the bottom! That's why I haven't modelled anything beneath the actual boat, so you can do this!

I would add some texture to the supports (red part). It looks to bright. Maybe add a ruff texture to it to look a little older.

~Joe

The texture used for the recolourable parts are the same as the ones that JCat/Pumper used for Steelworx. Where it is just a single-shaded square. Though, you are quite right, it doesn't look right on a ride like this! I will sort it out with a more realistic texture.

Pirate Ship need to put spot around the galleon with the window, cannon, mast, crow's nest, captain cabin, anchor, helm wheel, and anything that look very best.

I shall be adding these parts now. Particularly the crow's nest in the centre.. which is a must-have for all Pirate Ships!

I don't think the texture on the boat itself fits with the rest of the ride. I find it a little blurry looking while the steel construction is perfectly sharp.

As suggested, the steel parts wont look so 'perfect' texture wise.. so the boat wont look out of place as much. But the textures can always be improved!



So this is the ship of "piracy" you where talking about!

Indeed so!

Blimey, this is a long post! Thanks again. I shall start improving the boat right now!

I need to asked one question, i have just got to say that this ride is amazing, but i just wanted to know if you could make other rides that travel around uk on the fairgrounds, because there is a few rides that i would like to see.

Well, Imagineer John is kind enough for putting a lot of work into this, so I wouldn't want to make him do it again! As soon as I can do it completely by myself, I plan to make more, I was thinking of doing something like the 'Bash Street Bus' from Chessington.

Nice ride you have there! The only thing, the ship looks a little simple.. Like stu said, that little stump thing on the front, and maybe some fancy lights at the backside ?

Thanks! Just a little update, the texture of the wood on the boat has been updated, and will now be recolourable! I have built up the ends of the boat, with detail being added now.. and there is a mast in the middle!

I will see about lights.. because I was going for the kind of Pirate Ship for a theme park, which never seem to have obvious lights on.. so I was going to leave it without, and then you can use Vodhin's Light Set or whatever to light it up. Though, I'd like to see what everyone else thinks!

^ Thats good news! You are the man! How big is the ride in the game? 5x8?

It's 5x10, but it may change by a square or two.. when it gets to Blender, it will have to be resized, so it could be slightly bigger, slightly smaller. but somewhere around 5x10.

08-20-2008, 06:06 PM
Looks great Jonny! I doubt most people will color the structure red and green...how does it look recolored to colors most people WILL use? Like black, gray, browns or lighter greens. Those might look perfect.

The only question I would have is whether you have tried Vodhin's coaster lights to see if they actually line up or not.

Otherwise this looks great!

Jonnyears
08-20-2008, 06:13 PM
Hoorah for speedy replies!

Thanks, sir! It was stupid to colour it bright green, red, and blue.. it looks hideous in those colours! I will import it again shortly, and I will colour it black, brown etc.

I would hope that Vodhin's coaster lights would line up.. but as I say, when it goes into Blender, it will be resized slightly so I have no way of knowing yet. If the key areas are lined up the the edges of squares though, hopefully Vodhin's lights will line up.

The only thing that I would improve is the loading platform. A nice deck style would be nice

Jonnyears
08-21-2008, 03:12 PM
Just a small update, you can see that I've added some detail to the boat, and it's now recolourable (Which is why it's bright blue!)

I just wanted to see what people thought of this platform, if it's good enough, I will finish it off with some nice steps etc.

http://i160.photobucket.com/albums/t189/Jonnyears/BoatPlatform.jpg

Also, please excuse the awful quality you get with Milkshape! The textures look better than they're shown in that picture too.

stu-2693
08-21-2008, 03:15 PM
you can import a flat ride with milkshape? http://www.doughnuts.vodhin.org/23.gif

KingVeveraine
08-21-2008, 03:15 PM
^ He can then import it into blender, you make CFR's with Sketchup so it is all good.

I think the mast looks great, and the port window cannon things add some nice details :up:!

Jonnyears
08-21-2008, 03:19 PM

Yeah, as King Veveraine said, I'm more comfortable modelling in Milkshape, so when the model is finished, it's going into Blender.

The new versions looks alot better. But I would say to get rid of the mast becasue some members might have a theme, like space, and a Pirate ship in space wouldnt look nice. But what ou have without the mast would lok good for that theme. I dont know, its just an idea.

~SImtanic8

I'm afraid I'm going to keep the mast there. More often than not, people will want a mast on the boat. I've yet to find a pirate ship without a mast myself, so I would to keep the common features of the ride here. I hope you understand.

A blue boat? I thought you made a wooden boat?

The wood is going to be recolourable. To work in the importer, it's got to be blue, so you can change the colour in the game.. to brown if you want it similar to how it was before, or you could go for something more colourful.

You know how its custom does this mean you can place it ontop of vanilla scenary and pregame stuff? Also if you can ride it as you said where would the camera sit? On the back seat, in the middle, looking toi the ride or the the top of the ride like an aerial view?
Now ive said what i wanted id like the congratulate you on your progress. It must take loads of detail and time so i feel honered that your doing it for the community!

Steffen
08-22-2008, 11:11 AM
Nice that you've added a mast, that looks much better:up:
Concerning the texture on the boat itself, I think it would look much better, if you try to add some kind of wood texture. Since it a pirate ship, it should look like a galleon:

My intention for the ride is that you use the tool to make paths invisible, and then use the invisible fences so that you can't tell that it's enclosed in this space. Making it 4 squares wide saved space if the floor/collision detection might be a problem.

You know how its custom does this mean you can place it ontop of vanilla scenary and pregame stuff? Also if you can ride it as you said where would the camera sit? On the back seat, in the middle, looking toi the ride or the the top of the ride like an aerial view?
Now ive said what i wanted id like the congratulate you on your progress. It must take loads of detail and time so i feel honered that your doing it for the community!

I'm not sure about the collision detection... as far as I'm aware, you have no control over the path tiles the game automatically creates under your ride, so these would most likely have collision detection.

John has put two cameras on the ride, one at each end. No static cameras have been placed next to the ride.

And thanks for your kind words! This is one of the most complicated models I have done so far.. and I'm using Milkshape which is complicated anyway!

Nice that you've added a mast, that looks much better:up:

Thanks, I agree about the mast, it's made a big difference! It's not clear in the picture at the top of this page, but in game, the wooden texture will be very clear.

Hmm.. I'm not sure if it makes a difference but make sure that the folder is called 'Custom' with a captial C.. see if that makes a difference.

It would be great if you could post some print screens, then I might be of more help to you.

Works fine for me, and I do have Vista.

One thing I noticed jonny, and this may just the way it works, but I place the entrance and exits on one side of the ride. As peeps entered, those who were loading on the platform closer to the entrance were just instantly transported from the entrance to their seats, while those who loaded on the platform on the far side of the ride actually were seen walking all the way around and climbing up the steps. The same when exiting, those on the front side were instantly transported to the exit tile, the ones who unloaded from the back platform actually walked around.

A very MINOR thing, and really nothing that prevents me from using this as-is, but wanted to mention it anyways.

We were expecting someone to bring this up! John explained it to me, so hopefully I'm right here.. but this is the case with the bigger rides (The problem occurs with the larger Vanilla flat rides.. it's to do with the paths the peeps take, when they try to find the shortest route to their seats. For some reason, they decide to jump from the entrance straight to their seats.

As far as I'm aware, it's pretty much unavoidable. It's a bit annoying, but as you say, it's not the end of the World.

Few notes For people:

-Peeps occasionnally jump to the seats
-There are 2 full swings you can make this 4,6,8 etc.. when you increase the number of circuits.
-3 way recolourable


I will keep working on trying to fix those peeps and peep splines its just with cfr's peeps will take the quickest route to their "seats". With the loop spline they will try and go around it in some cases to get to the middle row as that is the closest spline point. However the other points it is a longer distance to take the other peepsplines.

As the area is so large with the CFR its going to mean adding alot of splines from different points so that the peeps will possibly go to them instead of jumping to the seats and missing the orginal splines.

WILD AND SOAKED:
You may need wild or soaked but you may be able to get away with the patches to run this CFR.

Nice man!, a normal ship :D ..The peep problem for me isn't that necessary but would be lol if they walk on the ship :P
But very nice modelled and nice textures!

Thanks everyone, glad you like the ride! :)

I like the ride it really nice CFR but there no lights at night for it.

I had thought about lights, but in real life, I have never found one that has lights on apart from floodlights etc. So if you want lights, it's easy, just put a couple from Vodhin's Light set and it works great!

well finally we have a generic pirate ship

great job

I thought you liked his more!! :mad::down:

WILD AND SOAKED:
You may need wild or soaked but you may be able to get away with the patches to run this CFR.

That might be the problem, with the two people who can't get it to work? Hmm..

Blimey, that looks tacky! That's a more fun-fair type Pirate Ship, when the one I modelled was really the type of thing you'd find in a theme park. And those don't have lights like that actually on the ride.

There is no need to download the patches to see if it makes this work. I have both expansions but no patches. If you explain exactly what you did, that might help. :up:

If you don't own any expansions, you probably will need the latest patches, but if you have them, you don't.

Making something like a Haunted House would be a bit tricky, and would probably not have brilliant results. Though, I do plan to make another ride one day!

Wha... the.... *random mutterings of disbelief*... when did custom rides become possible!? When I stopped posting here animation wasn't even possible. Guess I have missed a lot. Looks great.

08-25-2008, 08:13 PM
This is excellent. Much better than the one that came in the game.

Question? Can the base not be modified from the original?

Any chance you would eventually make real cable skyway cars instead of those awful chair lifts in the game? ;)

Thanks a million for this work of art.

What do you mean " The saftey is not working"?
If you are refering to the restraints they are not animated in the first place as doing so would result in over 30 meshes possibly and currently there is a 30 mesh limit.

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean! Could you explain again?

By the way, to make it easier for people who have problems with Rapidshare/Filefront and other sites, the ride is now avaliable on my new rubbishy website to download directly. Hoorah! No more clicking through endless adverts on Filefront or waiting 45 seconds on Rapidshare! There are also 'fun' facts and stuff on the Pirate Ship page if you wish to find out more!

I love this!!! I have used it several times & it works perfectly.:D:D
I was wondering how hard it would be to add the counterweight to the top & retheme the ship to a Space SHuttle? It is exactly the same ride except it goes all the way over. Would it be that much more animation? Is it a big ordeal? I have no idea how to do custom scenery/rides so I'm just asking. It would be great if it can be done.

ImagineerJohn
01-10-2009, 04:29 AM
It depends on if Jonny plans to remodel the ship and retexture it. Pretty basic really to edit it all. However i would have just made a brand new flat ride as the Full inverted swinging ships have different frame type.
