Only problem with overbanked turns is you can't built up the terrain around it.

Otherwise...wow! :shock:

yes you can Blaze, use object.txt cheats to turn off ride and terrain collision detection. :P

Tried doing that sort of thing before.

Now the extended coaster doesn't exist and if I try opening a park with one it crashes.

Far as I know, there's no way of getting it back, either. #-o

Looking good

Can't believe I’ve missed the last months updates. if you hadn't kept sending me sneak peeks I wouldn't have realised how far you've got.

Just a note: I plan on doing the Ultimate CTR after the 1st of September. It might be sooner depending on how quick I get some work done. Afraid I won’t be doing any other RCT stuff till then either :(

Thanks Nightfall. Honestly don't worry about the Ultimate CTR (sounds like Morwenna speak - every CTR you've ever dreamed of in one! :P ), it'll probably be a few months before I get that far.

For some reason my options.txt isn't working, hence the train tracks not overlapping. :? I'll keep playing around.

Whaa?! To be fair, aren't you going to Phantasialand?! I'd take that over RCT anyday! :P

More delays :roll: but there's at least a week before I leave so I'll probably get it done before then, just in case I get any new ideas while away :D

Looks like a really accurate recreation, it must be really difficult to do. Really looking forward to see where this heads.

Also anted to know where you got these path covers/curves etc.

Without a doubt one of the best rct parks out there! Your attention to detail is superb and I can't wait for it to be finished. Easily my most favourite park that I've ever followed. A stunning job well done! :)

Thanks SLC. I used Shyguy's Planters, Moby's Curved Walls & Floors and CTRS' Paths 1 and 2 sets.

Yes, and most likely before its finished when enough of the park is ready to show. Otherwise you'll be waiting decades.

I love to post on these even when only one picture has been uploaded but there isn't much more I can say apart from it's looking wonderful.

Keep it up!

Thanks guys! And Jonny, what happened to your epic park?

Been doing a little bit on the Trauma Tower and Pub In The Wood. Weirdly I've never been to this area of the park, so it's a little bit of guesswork whilst trying to work out what's happening from photos. I gave up on the pub after 3 failed attempts, so if it doesn't look quite up to scratch forgive me. In the future I shall come back to it and probably make a usable interior. I know the sign is useless, it was a photoshop skew job from the best photo I could find. The Trauma Tower logo turned out a bit better.

As always, work in progress. It obviously needs a few more trees.

Again, flawless work Captain. Never been to LWV myself so I don't know how it compares but still seems great anyway. :D Also, do you mind if I ask where those roofs are from? I've been looking around for those a while now. :)

Well, that project is on a bit of a standstill at the moment, I'm currently working on a few parks currently and that one has just been pushed back unfortunately. Hopefully soon enough another one of my parks may surface along with Blue Waters but thats a while away at the moment. :(

I have only visited the park once in my entire life, but I must say that I think you have captured its beauty and realism aspect perfectly.

Well done, and I can't wait to see how you develop other areas of the park.
