Hi!

Some of you may know that I was creating an unofficial Gerstlauer Eurofighter car (http://www.dasmatze.de/rct/page.php?62).
http://www.dasmatze.de/rct/images/downloads/ctr/Eurofighterk.jpg (http://www.dasmatze.de/rct/images/downloads/ctr/Eurofighter.jpg)

Here's the download:
http://www.dasmatze.de/rct/page.php?65

And a fast made video which YouTube messed up:
http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=Tk2RMSkcjNs

Feel free to show me some tracks/parks where you used it. I want to see how much it fits with different styles. I also started creating a wooden texture a few weeks ago.

Very greatfull for this dasmatz. And very very creative.

Hopefully this is a first of many QUAILTY CTR cars

. Style .
12-18-2008, 04:33 PM
Now we can make somewhat realistic Eurofighters, hooray ;D

I think it's actually quite amazing what are done these days with RCT3. I need to catch up I think, because the last thing I remember when playing the game, was just random custom scenery ;p

This CTR editing programme is definitely progressing fast, given time it'll be custom track pieces that are able to be created.

DasMatze, this car is very well made/realistic and clearly a lot of effort has been put into it, you should be proud of yourself. :)

Well, when I tried it, suddenly a thought hit my mind: would it be possible, that you release the car as a CSO model, so we can put it up on some storage tracks? That would be fantastic! - Now I have to go back building a Eurofighter :D

There is kind of a problem with how it was packaged. If you look in the tracks folder, there is a TrackedRideCars folder. And in that folder, you'll find the CTR file (CTR_DasMatze_Eurofighter). You just have to move that folder into Tracks/TrackedRides, and it should show up in the game.

Really? I thought I fixed that. Anyway, it's fixed now. Thx for the note.

I started creating a wooden texture for the car a long time ago. If I finish it, I will import it as a second car, post my texture templates and start a contest where the best textures will be in the game as alternative cars.

12-19-2008, 10:08 AM
When I try to put "Cars" and "Track" into the main directory, my computer asks, if I would like to exchange the old maps with the new ones - should I say yes or?

DasMatze
12-19-2008, 10:42 AM
@djfriktion: ok, but it was a great moment for a /facepalm pic. :D

@SeniorDIEGO: Read the readme.

@Steffen: Yes, because the folders already exist. But nothing will be replaced.

Update:
I animated the restraints (and did some changes on my side). Just download it again and replace the files in the Cars-folder.

Thanks Das. I remember my first take on custom cars, it was way back before CFR's with Doughnuts (Stu here), we couldn't do that much but it was a shot and after seeing this I have to say that me and Doughnuts would have had it if we kept going.

12-19-2008, 11:30 AM
Wait, so does this work without wild? I just installed it and it didn't show up, and I think it's because I don't have wild.... but I dunno.

TPM INC
12-19-2008, 11:32 AM
yeah, you need wild because of the track that it is on.

12-19-2008, 12:25 PM
Hmmm.. The cars don't show up with the extended track.

TPM INC
12-19-2008, 12:28 PM
That is because they use their own CTR that uses the extended track. It comes with the download.

metromover
12-19-2008, 12:34 PM
Wow, these cars are absolutely amazing! Thanks and "Hut ab!"

I just have a question that also bugged me with the NetOn custom rides:
As I understand you used the extended coaster as track for this but why are the large, steep-to-straight pieces and the overhang drops (which would be quite important for a Eurofighter) missing?

I don´t know anything about coding and all this and I am sure that you had your reasons for excluding those elements. Is it possible to implement these at a later date?

tomtomtom
12-19-2008, 12:44 PM
what the hell, when i opened up the coaster, the track is upside down

03gibbss
12-19-2008, 12:49 PM
^ You have to choose to place a normal track section first and then you can change the banking so the track appears right way up and then build the station ;)

DasMatze
12-19-2008, 12:51 PM
@metromover: I don't know, it's just not possible. Maybe the controls to build those pieces are overwritten with the one from the really small steep-to-straight piece.

what the hell, when i opened up the coaster, the track is upside down
The purpose of a readme is to read it.

TPM INC
12-19-2008, 04:43 PM
Das Matze made the CTR Track by using the CTR Creator by mixing Track 5 (for extended coaster. flying coaster, inverted coaster, etc..). You have to find what it says to find in the read me file through your coaster list.

Steffen
12-19-2008, 04:52 PM
Maybe I'm a little slow, but do I have to make a CTR and then use the Eurofighter train?

TPM INC
12-19-2008, 04:56 PM
That is one option another option is to use the CTR that Das Matze made. When you download look under Tracks and then TrackedRides and you will find CTR_Das_Matze_Eurofighter. Take this file and put it under this directory:
program files/tracks/coasters {or} tracked rides.

I made a ctr for this car on the wild mouse track but whenever i try to build a normail station (not inverted) it crashed any help?

There's now also a second car with a wooden skin. Just download it again. I deleted the inverted station.

I also start now a challenge. I give you the texture templates and you can create an alternative skin. The best ones will be chosen and imported. Template-Download:

Thanks Das, I guess I have to make a new version of my Desperado file.

Okay so let's get this straight. All we have to do is change the colours to out likings and you'll decide which one's are best?

shaun allsop
12-20-2008, 11:49 AM
This is just a thought and It may have allreay been asked so I do apoligise dasmatz.

Im guessing it wouldnt be possible to texture the cars as a billboard as they arnt clcikable. The ride settings just appear.

Can they not be textured in the same way as the pre show CS from stu or like the Make your own logo shop. I.E its a template that is then importet into the game (overrites exsisting files??) then peaple would be able to customize it how they wanted.

Pobarshmallow
12-20-2008, 12:44 PM

A competition. You create textures on templates, I put them onto the model, maybe correct some mapping problems and then I take the best ones and release them as alternative cars.

Im guessing it wouldnt be possible to texture the cars as a billboard as they arnt clcikable.
That's right! It's not possible.

It's a car, a CTR and and a tracklayout.

Yes, I know that I'm annoying, but now I've tried to make the Eurofighter with the CTR-creater, but I can't get it to work either.

Are there anyone who would like to make a little TUT or something? That would really be a huge help.

Vodin posted this on another thread about a CS set that someone was having trouble downloading, it might help here:

empty temp internet files and any previous download- windows can sometimes assume that a download it already has is the one to keep.

Also, if you use any internet helper applications, like download accelerators, those might cause corrupted files, too.

Before you get mad at me, I read the FAQ and tried everything I could think of. Each time I try, the program I use says there is something wrong with the file or that there are no files to extract. I've tried WinZIP, WinRAR, WinACE, and 7ZIP. None of them have been able to extract the files. Any ideas of why I can't even with 4 different programs? I READ THE FAQ!

I found a solution that may work for you. Instead of left clicking the link to download, try right clicking instead and selecting "Save Target As". Save it to your desktop and then extract the zipped files. That seemed to work better for me.

Good luck and hope this helps others that were having similar issues.

^ Wow! That looks great! ... I just have no idea how it'll look on the actual car... It hurts my brain just to try and visualize it... :p

Question: I'm on a Mac, and, as a result, do not have the ability to use Wild. I love the car, though, and even got it working in the game until I came to a track piece that required Wild, and my game crashed (of course). I've asked this question in the RCT3 Mac area and got little response, so I thought I'd ask here: Is there a way to, on a Mac, get the Eurofighter car on another track (such as the looping coaster track... I never use that anyway... :haha:)? I really, really want to use the car, but I can't if the game keeps crashing... :(

Thank you everyone. I appreciate it.

I could give a graffiti car a try, if that is ok with Dasmatze. I might need to make a few duplicates of the sides so I can fit more names and so they do not repeat twice. I will need to know who should go on it(if they want to)and if they want to make their own "graffiti" or I can make one based slightly on their avatar.

One thing though, and I may be way off with this because I don't really understand these new cars. Is it possible to put these on another track with the hex editor or any other way? I looked at it but couldn't find anything. The track it's on automatically is practically the extended coaster but I can't make beyond vertical drops with it...

It's still a really cool car, but any help would be appreciated.

whenever i build a eurofighter using this, nobody will pay to go on it, even if its free they say its to expensive, ive re downloaded it a couple of times but still the same, every ride has the same rating for excitment and that even if ones a massive good coaster and the other is just a circle

can anyone tell me if this is meant to be like this or if its just mine?!?

It is like that because it is really hard to give a ride values that not end in ratings below 25 of excitement, intensity and nausea. Try yourself by creating your own CTR with that cars.

Create your own CTR.

In your bahndaten.txt

This applies to some other coaster tracktypes as well, not just the extended.

Feel free to show me some tracks/parks where you used it. I want to see how much it fits with different styles. I also started creating a wooden texture a few weeks ago.

Here is a coaster I made with the wooden version of the Eurofighter

I've been working on a coaster with your car on the extended track (unedited from the download) for a while now and currently I'm working on the chain/launch part. However I stumped into a little problem: The launched lifthill isn't working. To be more precise, the track doesn't speed up the car. It just slows down and falls back. Just like a normal track piece. Does this happen to others as well, and if so, is it perhaps possible to fix it?
Thanks in advance.

what kind of coaster did you take the loop from? i thought that you took it from the looping coaster but when i checked, the track was too wide.
