    Planet Coaster

    Haven't made much in the way of proper progress recently, I've been pretty stuck on the steampunk area and yesterday I decided to completely rework the area. I redid the facade of the Spinning Coasters building, I think it looks far more cohesive that it did before, I much prefer it. I also made a Baron 1898 inspired theming element that doubles as support for the lift hill, I built it using the Intamin Giga Coaster track and a variety of different scenery objects, I'm really pleased with how its turned out. I also redid the Spinning Coaster's layout and removed the restaurant, I really didn't like the exterior of the restaurant, it was far too big and bulky. As for the Spinning Coaster my main point of contention was the space of track after the Immelman turn and before the dark section, nothing really happened in it and it just seemed like a poor use of space, I feel it's much better now. As part of redoing the Spinning Coaster's station I tried my hand at using the in game pieces to create something they're not intended for, once again I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, however the station still needs a lot of work. I've also started work on the entrance area for the park, it's inspired by Chessington's North entrance so don't expect it to be filled up like Towers Street when it's finished. I'm not too good at designing entrance area's so I'm keeping it as barebones as possible, the large building at the end is going to be a manor house when it's finished, the park's major gift shop and staff offices will be inside this manor (I may attempt to make an interior for the gift shop, but no promises) The building outline in the corner of the entrance plaza will be a pub/restaurant when it's finished (Think Greedy Goblin at Chessington). I'm at the point at the moment with this park where I'm happy enough with it to leave it alone for a little while, which is great because I have university re submissions that I should be working on instead of playing this game, so yeah, no updates for a little while. As always feedback and suggestions are greatly appreciated, thanks.
  2. rise of the demon is so so good, I loved the original but rise is just such an improvement, the politicians were a laugh as well, even if they killed the mood a little..

    Planet Coaster

    hey guys, been working on my park a bunch over the last few weeks, a lot of that time was spent deciding which direction to take the park in. I spent around a week making a new area with a wing coaster and I ended up scrapping it and going waaaaaay back to what I had prior. on my second try I feel like I made something pretty good, so this is the new area I've been working on; it's a steampunk themed area, it contains a screaming swing, spinning coaster, a carousel (none of these rides have names) and my first restaurant (I'm not too proud of the interior so I wont be posting it here) the spinning coaster ends with a short indoor section, the goal was to try and make it feel like a realistic UK ride, one where the rough edges like the walls of the shed are a little exposed and the theming inside is relatively light. (I'm trying to make this park feel real) the steampunk area is still a way from being finished, but I'm pretty pleased with what I have so far. I also went back and redid many parts of the german area; I added some new sections to the elevated pathways, I also redid the autobahn's layout and added a small plaza area beneath the elevated area. the autobahn's station has been relocated as part of its new design, it's now in a far more easy to work with position than it was before (it used to be under the launch track of specter (now eidolon)) I've spent a lot of this evening doing work on eidolon, building its station, redoing its entrance and theming it's queue. I really like how the queue looks at night. here's an overview of the whole park so far, it's still a long way from being finished, the next area I'm going to start is probably going to be the entrance plaza (the beige path at the bottom) once again suggestions (especially names!!) are always welcome

    Planet Coaster

    booted up planet coaster today with the intention of just messing around with a roller coaster that interacts with a rapids ride, ended up wasting my entire day pretty much starting a new park and half finishing the first area. this area is themed to germany, an the big rollercoaster that runs through the area is going to have a horror theme when it's finished. I really like the idea of mixing horror elements into an area that isn't entirely horror themed (basically just transylvania at chessington). the roller coaster - specter - is inspired by mack mega coasters the majority of the queue for the rapids winds around itself in the middle of this plaza area. I'm really disappointed by the rapids in the game, having a straight station sucks to begin with, but then not being able to add more boats than the station can hold (like the log flume) is what really ruins it, makes it almost impossible to imitate a turntable station. I tried to do this but it really isn't good, if anyone has any tips on how to do this while still having a functional ride, please let me know. I really like the way specter dives into this barn. does a barn fit in with the germany theme? probably not. (the car ride snaking below the area is called "the autobahn" btw) the giant wooden mess in the middle is to give that long stretch of track some support while adding a theming element (I'm not sure what it's meant to be though) basically the rapids have cut off a crucial support on that long stretch of track, and no amount of poking and prodding can get it back, I really wish you could build your own supports in this game. if anyone has any better ideas for the theming element/support - please let me know.

    it had a crap name and logo, now it has a different crap name and logo, nothing of value was lost and nothing of value was gained.

    Bubbleworks

    I've only just read this topic today and I'm genuinely amazed to see even some appreciation for post 2005 Bubbleworks, even if you didn't go on the original its easy to see that it's just soulless, corporate crap. How anyone can feel like they have any sort of emotional connection to the ride in it's post 2005 state is beyond me, thank god it's finally gone.
  9. Got 2 rides on Ghost Train yesterday, each time I'm going on it I'm enjoying it more, however that 2nd VR section is still bollocks. Operations towards the end of the day were incredibly poor, our group was held up in the area between the pre show and the ride for about 10 minutes, and by the time we got in the train so many people were put in in one go that the operators struggled to find everyone a seat, it was a bit of a mess. One old guy attempted to sit on the floor as a form of protest but the operators were having none of it as there was definitely a free seat somewhere.

  13. Interesting that they seem to be suggesting it'll be open next week, they must have some confidence in that if they're putting it on the website.
