View Full Version : [REL] Swinging Mine, Tractor Ride and Carnaval Festival

04-17-2009, 07:14 PM

I've been busy in the last days. This is what I was working on:

Swinging Mine
This ride swings from side to side (at least in the non-tilted curves). It uses a tracked mixed with pieces from the Spinning Wild Mouse and Mini Coaster. Of course it has animated restraints but this one needed animated doors too. The turn-axis-values I used are not perfect and need to be improved. I will try different values. Maybe the track pieces will change too in the future. I had to get rid of the 3x3 non-tilted curve because there is no button for it anymore. If you want single cars, click the switch cars button. Somehow it was impossible to use a single car of the whole train. Please keep a big bucket or medical station near the exit ready when you build sharp curves.

Old McDonalds Tractor Ride
This ride is based on the Old McDonalds Tractor Ride from Fort Fun in Germany. These two are the only pics I found: *Clickety click click* (http://www.themepark-central.com/page.php?id=121&aid=107)
I wish the proportions of my cars would match with the real ones. But they look cuter somehow. Maybe it's because of their peep sizes. Mmh, yes, probably ... I blame RCT3. :P

Carnaval Festival
No, it's spelled correctly. There is a darkride in De Efteling (Netherlands) which is called like that and it's one of the few rides I have ridden in my life. I really like it so I created this CTR. The special thing about it: It uses the RoboCoaster interface to rotate the cars (the bottommost buttons is for the rotation, the others do nothing). And since it doesn't have such ugly wooden tracks but a carpet floor with a gutter in the middle, I had to recreate that with a CSO. It contains parts for every track piece. Billboards and terrain pieces. Use the billboards to put a carpet texture on it (I packed two of them into the download) or another texture. The terrain pieces use the texture of the ground. But that's not enough. If you don't to fill a whole tile with the trackcover, use the B-Versions to cover only the track (for example if you want to use Mr PKI's Coaster Tunnels (I haven't tried it yet)). The Carnaval Festival design of the cars probably don't fit with the style of your ride, so I created a plain color version too. Medical warning: Do not watch any videos of the real ride otherwise you will be humming the melody of it's soundtrack for days!

It happend to me sometimes that the game crashes while I was editing the track (especially the rotation) or while changing the cars. SAVE before doing that. I'm not responsible for any park and time you lose!!!!

I absolutly love all of these CTRs, the swinging mine cart looks incredible and unique and the dark ride looks phenomenal. It will surely be extremely useful. I can't stress it enough on how much I like the bottom cars.

04-17-2009, 07:28 PM
Wow! This is really cool! Downloading!

04-17-2009, 07:45 PM
For the tractors, mabey you could add haycarts in the back and have 1 person up front. That way a haunted hayride can be constructed. Also, I DEFINANTLY will use Carnaval Festival. It will be AWSOME! Mabey you could also make the ones like this (http://www.dafe.org/attractions/darkrides/phantom/04car.jpg) and this (http://www.betterhaunts.com/hmfaq/doombuggies.jpg). I just really hope you could do the first, mabey even one with that little design?

04-17-2009, 08:02 PM
Can you use your CTR with wild if you got RCT3 Platinum

04-17-2009, 09:15 PM
OH MY!! DasMatze! That's the closest thing to an OMNIMOVER!! You are awesome!! Thanks for making these rides. :)


04-17-2009, 09:31 PM
You sir, are an awesome genius, the fair ones are amazing, I'm betting someone's starting their haunted mansion recreation as we speak

04-17-2009, 09:33 PM
That's the closest thing to an OMNIMOVER!!
Word for word the exact same thing I said when I saw this ride. :haha:

04-17-2009, 10:01 PM
Hello DasMatze, I see you create awesome CTRs and I really want them. However, when I go onto your site, I receive a http 403 forbidden from bplace.net. I think there must be something wrong with your server.

Or maybe I can't get onto your site with my Hong Kong IP no. and yes, I've tried this with several computers. All of them received the forbidden message.

Just to let you know.

04-17-2009, 10:18 PM
Wonderful! Thank you!

Love the tractor, very cute!

04-17-2009, 10:19 PM
^ I got it, Must be your conection.

Thanks buddy, Thanks for taking your time and sharing this with all of us. You are the man!

04-18-2009, 02:18 AM
Whoa! I love the doors on the mine carts. The animation on those is sweet. I never would have thought of something like that. Also, that omnimover type ride is wicked cool.

04-18-2009, 06:40 AM
Finally! I can work on my project of Expedition Atlantis Again!

04-18-2009, 06:49 AM
Fantastic work DasMatze! =] They all look amazing! Really well made and should be a lot of fun! ;D

04-18-2009, 06:54 AM
Do not watch any videos of the real ride otherwise you will be humming the melody of it's soundtrack for days!

:haha: So,True! ....Thanks for these dasmatze they are truely amazing

04-18-2009, 08:06 AM
Problem with the Carnaval Festival..

I know you said it will crash. but i cant even use the ride. As soon as i put down the first station it crashes. Do i have it in the right folder? //tracks/tracked rides ?

04-18-2009, 08:09 AM
Merry Christmas!


well.....this release its very big but great as always !!
With this addittions RCT is much better !!! :up:

thanks again !

04-18-2009, 08:12 AM
Can you use your CTR with wild if you got RCT3 Platinum
You need both wild and soaked
Problem with the Carnaval Festival..

I know you said it will crash. but i cant even use the ride. As soon as i put down the first station it crashes. Do i have it in the right folder? //tracks/tracked rides ?

I think you got the wrong maps indeed,Read the readme carefully , Make sure u put the right maps in the right folder

04-18-2009, 08:13 AM
i got it fixed :)

wow they are really! really! cool :)

sham they dont have like a moving platform stations.

04-18-2009, 08:48 AM
It seems like the Efteling is the most inspirational park for firsts. The first madhouse, now the first turnable darkride ride. I can completely understand why it's such an inspirational park.
Anyway, great ctr's. Like always. The idea to make it turnable... you knew exactly what every one wanted.
Thanks for another great adition to our parks :up:

04-18-2009, 08:55 AM
The swinging mine ride looks amazing!

04-18-2009, 10:03 AM
^^It isn't because de Efteling is very inspirational. All CFRs/CTRs created that are also in de Efteling can be found in other parks too. So the fact that all firsts are all from de Efteling is because de Efteling has a big variety of rides with special rides. I can't wait to see someone making something like Droomvlucht ;).

Anyway, Thanks DasMatze for creating these nice rides!

04-18-2009, 11:01 AM
yeah I know forgot to add both so my question now right can use wild and soaker with this CTR's.

04-18-2009, 11:28 AM
^You actually need Wild! For two of the CTRs... I think it's a yes.

04-18-2009, 11:32 AM
wow, amazing. I love the Efteling. Next time a Vliegende Hollander car ? :P

04-18-2009, 11:43 AM
Awesome work!
I really like the Carnaval Festival cars. I can't wait until somebody makes the Carnaval Festival CSO. ;)

04-18-2009, 11:43 AM
hello dasmatze. thats some nice models you made there especially the swining mine.. but what else could we expect :P?

I have a question. What is the bones in sketchup if you want a rotation like that and free rotation like on the carnival and your gerstlauer spinner :)?

04-18-2009, 11:43 AM
Look awsome see can't wait try dark ride carts out thank alot help with new ride this did.

04-18-2009, 11:44 AM
Wonderfull cars! and I love the track covers, that's just incredible.. love it :)

04-18-2009, 10:51 PM
Great work! All I want are those awsome swinging mine cars but don't get me wrong those other ctr's are great.

04-19-2009, 04:42 AM
Super Fantastic! The swinging mine is absolutely one of the best things you, or anybody else did for the game!

The swinging works great and the way you animated the movement in the overbank and the inversions is amazing.

I especially love how you combined various track elements. This makes a perfect coaster. It would work great with your spinning coaster car (hint, hint!) and if you ever plan to do a Gerstlauer Bobsled CTR (hint, hint!) http://rcdb.com/m/ig1011.htm?picture=6
we would have another great, modern ride with many building possibilities.

The Carnaval ride crashed the game during my first attempt to rotate the cars. Too sad, it is such a great idea and wonderfully designed.

04-19-2009, 10:22 AM
i love those mine carts, i attempted something similar this week but yours are just amazing!!!
is there a new tutorial for rotation bones?? or is it because youre special :)

04-19-2009, 11:31 AM
hah! Wicked :D

04-20-2009, 12:50 PM
These are completely amazing. You are just totally ripping through CTR's like nobody's business. Incredible work. The Carnaval One is probably one I'd use for sure.

Here's a thought for maybe your next project. Maybe something resembling the Pony Xpress at Knott's? Just throwing the idea out there. I'd love to try to make it myself and have considered attempting it a few times but my modeling skills are nowhere near worth the quality of things that you or Gadget, or Old Sprice are making... among others. Just throwing the idea out there though. I think it'd make a great addition.

04-26-2009, 08:57 AM
Really Great! I've made a design in RCT3, but every time when i try to input a rotation the game crashes immediately. Did everything as described in the readme, and also tried a reinstall of the stuff... Still same problem, someone has a solution?



04-26-2009, 09:42 AM
does the new version of ctr need wild always? since I downloaded the original spinning coaster and studio tour and they worked fine and now that you changed them, they need wild.

04-26-2009, 07:58 PM

Try only editing the angles while the ride is in yellow test mode...that seemed to make it crash less often for me...but it still crashes a LOT... :bulb:


05-02-2009, 07:17 PM
hey, love the doombuggy-esque ctr.

i installed it but im having some problems.

1) where do I find the scenery section of the download once I'm in the game. I don't know where to find it

2) I built a simple test track with the doombuggy carnival track and then saved. Then, I tried to rotate the cars on one piece of track and the game shut off. What am I supposed to be doing?

05-03-2009, 12:02 AM
hey Shaq,

1) They appear where the terrain blocks and tunnel entrances from the original game are...he did that because half of the track covers use the terrain texture...but the billboard ones are there too.

2) Yeah...he's aware of the problem...there are some bugs with the CTR creator that are still being worked out. I gave up on the ride I started with the Omni-mover...it crashed every time I went back to edit an angle. :(

Thanks. I actually figured everything out. As for the omnimover, i figured out how to work it without crashing. I played for about 2 hours fine without crashing. If you want to angle the vehicle, what I did was first build the track, then save, then go through and do the angles (while the ride was in yellow test mode). It worked for me

05-03-2009, 05:03 PM
These are just Fantastic DasMatze!!!!
I really like the Swinger...and the transport looks great as well , I forgot to test the tractor:( but sure it is great .
Thanks so much for these . You make some amazing rides.

05-04-2009, 07:10 PM
Thank you, thank YOU, THANK YOU! This is amazing! I know you may not want any suggestions for future plans but could you try the Maurer Sohne spinning cars, plain ones and one with a design like Waldameer's: http://www.rcdb.com/ig2657.htm?picture=10 and http://www.rcdb.com/ig2657.htm?picture=13.

05-06-2009, 06:33 AM
Yay! Yay! Hooray! I figured out how to use the Carnaval ride without crashing the game. I only installed the "CTR_DMCarnavalFestivalPlain" cars into the folder "...\Atari\RollerCoaster Tycoon 3\Cars\TrackedRideCars".
Then I made a new "CTR_Bahndaten" file, imported it into the CTR_Creator and installed the new folder into "...\Atari\RollerCoaster Tycoon 3\tracks\TrackedRides". Try and tell me if it works for you too!

The carnival festival really needs to be fixed, because it almost always crashes. The other are good though.

05-06-2009, 07:24 AM
Thanks for that Myotis! (It's nice to hear from you)

Before everyone uses it's own CTR file with that car, please wait until I fixed the "official" CTR (to prevent incompatible rides and trackedrides-folders full of unused CTRs).


Edit: It seems that the "WagenRotationswinkelFlag 1" (CarRotationsFlag 1) has solved the problem. Please redownload and try it. It's possible to build it underwater too now.

05-06-2009, 08:14 AM
Awesome work Dasmatze! I will download it later!

Cheers =D

05-06-2009, 09:17 AM
Hey Dasmatze!Very good job,i like all you CTR´s!!!
The Swinging Mine are sooooo cool!!!!
Do you have a new Project?

A CTR of Free Fly coaster is a cool idea!

Thank you!

05-06-2009, 03:06 PM
^ you shouldnt ask him a request, we have a request thread already.

05-07-2009, 10:30 AM
Thanks that you fixed it Dasmatze, finally I can work with normally.
Seriously, thanks for all your hard work :)

05-07-2009, 10:18 PM
The carnival festival ctr still crashes when I edit the rotation. I even downloaded the fixed file and it still crashes!

05-09-2009, 04:43 AM
^The same happens to me.

05-09-2009, 10:18 AM
Hey.love the carnval ride. but i downloaded the new 1 and it still crashes. just keep up the good work and im sure ull find a solution soon.

05-09-2009, 10:31 AM
I think it's important that you finish the track before editing the rotations.

05-09-2009, 10:56 AM
Dasmatze, how did you activate the robocoaster interface for your carnaval ride? And what type of animations do you have to make and where do you put them?

Im trying to do an EMV ride with my Indiana jones jeep vvv

05-09-2009, 05:55 PM
DasMatze, I think it is an error with the CTR creator, because the same thing happened to me when I was trying to edit the Eurofighter track. Might be a good idea to have ML look into the problem and get something out to keep it form crashing the game.

05-10-2009, 10:10 PM
So, DasMatze...is it fixed? I haven't tried the new version...I'm on vacation...


05-11-2009, 06:05 AM
Glad you finally fixed them.

05-12-2009, 09:15 PM
Just want to say I really appreciate this ride, it's really useful, and I'll put it to good use. :D

05-13-2009, 03:28 AM
Dasmatze could you release the CF ride with no bug's or... do i have to solve it on that difficoult way?:weird:

05-13-2009, 06:46 AM
I really like the tractor ride dasmatze, because i have put that into my park.

Dasmatze please can you read this message about your website please.

Hi Dasmatze

I just wanted to tell you something about your website, I wanted to download the Cheat Group from your website and when I download to my desktop and install it comes up with error and something like o byes instead of the
Filesize:7,73 KB, so is there anything wrong with it.


05-17-2009, 10:15 AM
I downloaded the carnaval festival,
but the cars don't turn!

05-17-2009, 10:23 AM
^You have to click that thing that looks like a baseball diamond to the left, and start messing with the control on the bottom of the window it opens up.

05-17-2009, 11:06 AM
well also i tried everything, but it wont turn the cars...

if i enable the direction change thing the game crashes...

so im afraid the CTR wont work.

and i got soaked and wild

05-17-2009, 11:25 AM
I just downloaded them and they worked great! Thanks DM!

05-17-2009, 11:52 AM
The last cars crash my game when I try to turn them but oh, well. They're awesome!

05-18-2009, 05:10 AM
still doesnt work here

05-18-2009, 09:40 AM
Great Work Dasmatze!! Forgot To Download :D


05-19-2009, 06:46 AM
well it still doesnt work here,

only the swinging mine and tractor ride are working now...

Capn Pogo
05-19-2009, 01:54 PM
The Carnaval Festival seems to work sort of 50/50. For a moment I thought that testing the ride and letting it compute the results (Excitement, Intensity etc) made it work, but that theory got debunked the more I used it. But hey, sometimes working is better than not working at all eh? :P

It's really great to see a ride that people have wanted in the game for so long finally made as a CTR.

05-30-2009, 05:02 PM
Any update on Carnaval Festival ?

05-30-2009, 09:46 PM
Any update on Carnaval Festival ?

from the looks of it... 不 >>>>> (it means "no":p:haha:)

06-07-2009, 04:36 AM

I just ran across your new rides the other day... WOW!!! :eek:

You have truly outdone yourself, yet again!

I have definate plans for the tractor. It's gonna be perfect.

The Tram, while not in this thread, is stupendous... I love it! Time to start working on that Universal Studios Back Lot Tour again... ;)

The Swinging Mine Train is a blast to play with. The way the trains swing is a lot of fun. I can see a lot of great rides being created with this ride. (While goofing around I even got the cars to flip a full 360 while re-entering the station too fast after a 90 degree bend. It was hilarious to watch!)

My other favorite is the Carnaval Festival Omni Movers. I begged Frontier to add that feature to thier Haunted Hotel ride all through the Soaked and Wild Beta tests. It never happened. I'm very happy to see that you were able to pull it off. What you've learned and what you've done for RCT3 has been incredible. I know I'm going to have a lot of fun with these new rides, and I'm sure others will to.

Thanks again for all the great scenery and rides. We've enjoyed every bit of it!
