Re: TTSP Discord?

I think the idea of being unaffiliated is not using the name or branding. There are plenty of theme park based discord servers. Just need to know where to look. Long and short of it is that if the team wanted a Discord server setting up for TTSP, there would be one by now. Take it from someone who m...

Re: Project 42 (Nemesis Sub-Terra) - New for Scarefest 2018

I raised this possibility with a few friends of mine that used to work on N:ST. They've said that unfortunately unless they've somehow made space for a makeshift return staircase, the lower drop zone isn't able to be used even with the ride system removed because only one of the four corners houses ...

Re: Wicker Man in NoLimits 2: Feed the Flames!

At this point the main foundations are now complete for the lower end of the site and lines are being marked out for a boundary to be set. Most of Mutiny Bay will not be accessible, with the intention of cutting off the lake facing side of the courtyard, the internal courtyard itself, and Sharkbait ...

Re: Wicker Man in NoLimits 2: Feed the Flames!

The place for gifts to be given is becoming clearer! Wicker Man's landscape continues to come together with only a few big gaps left to go in the main site, as well as everything at the top end of the site still to go. Also I've made a POV showing where the track is up to, hoping to have the profile...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Okay THIS. There's only ever been one other coaster to make me genuinely question clearance and that was Colossus on the two headchoppers either side of the 'airtime' hill. But Wicker Man set a new level because I'm putting my hands down for the first fly through EVERY TIME.

Thankfully, I can gladly say that with all assets in the file being my own, I shall be releasing this upon completion! :)

Wicker Man in NoLimits 2: Feed the Flames!

Since my departure from Virtual Towers Online I was rather upset about not being able to finish making Wicker Man in NoLimits 2. So I decided I would, but this time I'm doing it for me. Completely remade all models so they're my own, and I'm already close to having a track profile ready for support ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Sooooo, the changes made. I can confirm that the projectors are realigned in the Seeper room. However today two of them were off and there was no sign of the strobe being functional again. The indoor drop strobe was functioning perfectly fine. One needle of the Inoculator working. Flasher working fi...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

One thing worth mentioning that hasn't been noted yet, is that when you stack in maintenance with three trains on the system, the final tunnel effects no longer activate until you're in it. The audio still plays in there though. So no more sitting halfway down maintenance watching some stuff happen ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I'm inclined to believe the restored effects on The Smiler did occur as I was messaged by a friend that was on park today saying the same thing. I'm going tomorrow so I'll be able to confirm.

I'm told the issues on park at present are down to a power surge but that's yet to be confirmed.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I've heard the same thing about Nemesis running one train for the entire season. Based on the reason I've been told, it's not due to budget cuts so much as maintenance issues.

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

The name came from there being a single tree in between the path itself and the Wicker Man construction site. It's down at the very bottom end of the path, near the queue line.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I’ve just recently seen a post on Twitter from Coastertouring, that John wardley has ridden Wicker man and has given a short review on his experience. Let’s just say he really enjoyed it, and by what he’s experienced it sounds very promising! Wardley was on site Monday to ride Wicker Man and provid...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Amanda has been stated to say that Icon will be themed around a Zen garden, which I'll remind you, is a feature very common to Japan.

And Bert, pagodas aren't just in China. The architecture is seen across the majority of Eastern Asia so I wouldn't be so quick to put them down on that one.
