RCT3 Custom Track coaster. Showing how much RCT3 has moved forward.

Fri Apr 27, 2012 8:23 pm

Hello, over the past few days I have been making something special in RCT3. A Custom Tracked ride made using the PEP track. And I'm now going to show it to you. As you will see the ride is far from finished. And more updates will be on there way soon.

Now I have kept something secret but I'm sure people who are also on shyguys world could probably guess what it is I'm not showing you.

Just some info, I'm doing this to show people how far the RCT3 community has brought forward RCT3 since the release of it. So the ride has no theme, but will use various CS sets that I think are excellent. If you can think of a particular set that you think is good please tell me and I'll try to include it in some way.

Please Comment with suggestions and improvements. :D

Haha that has the most flanges I've ever seen!

I think I know what's in the building!

The banking looks good - I'm a big fan of the direction switch on the hill in the second to last picture.

The coaster and scenery looks great, but I'm afraid the overuse of supports and flanges ruins it somewhat. Maybe just tone it down slightly?

Have a look at Old Spice's Asian Empire set for Japanese/Chinese scenery :)

Thanks Don't_Look_Down. About the supports, on other sites I've shown this on I've had a lot of positive comments on the supports so I'll keep them.

And thanks to the suggestion on CS. :D

The corners are oversupported as well as some of the track.

Did my Link in the Scatbox Work?

All I will say on the over supporting issue is look at chetah hunt when its got the two rail track. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=z5jyCHZR83Y#t=63s

Or Th13teen. Thats got a lot of supports.

Yes the link did thank thanks. :D

Wow looks good any chance of a POV when its finished.

And er.. is the ride going to do a lift in that tower and then a drop track in that other building?

Yes there will be a pov when it's finished and from constantly watching the ride when I finish each building I can say it is quite impressive although a little jerky when it goes into banking, but that cannot be helped.

And no there is no drop track because to my knowledge no one has released one yet and I can't make custom track.

My dilemma with the 'over supported' track, is that you've just exceptionally thick supports, for exceptionally thin track!

But moby's steel jungle v1 witch I used for this is the only support set that I've got that has that much flexibility, flanges and is the thinnest of most supports. And the other supply's which are thinner are designed for in game track so they would fit properly onto the track like the ones I used do. :)

I think the point that everyone else is trying to get across is that you've got an unnecessary amount of supports for such a small ride. Simplicity is best (and saves you time as well). Take this picture for example:

Image

Now when you were talking about this low to the ground section you refereed to Cheetah Hunt and the amount of supports it has. Now while it is true there are a lot of supports they are all simple vertical struts. Your curve however not only has lots of supports but you've joined them all together in an over complicated way. If you were to delete every section of horizontal support (except for where it connects to the the track of course) I guaranty it would look much neater.

Also you say moby's steel jungle v1 is too thick but It's not too dissimilar to the supports on Spinball.

That's my advice anyway, I hope it helps. Thanks for the mention ;)

Thank for the support nightfall. :D but I'm going to leave the supports because I like them and when doing the the supports just on there own just didn't look right to me. And Ive had people on shyguys and the RCT lounge saying the thu really like the supports.

I guess you can't please everyone. Don't think I'm ignoring your advice because it's your comments that keep me going. :D

Hello again. :D

Just wondering if anyone would like to see me put this coaster up for download?

If not enough people want it then I might email it to people. :)

The scenery looks great and the ride does some very nifty manoeuvres. My only concern is how much speed it looses in places. If you could fix the speed in certain areas by lowering the track then that would really help your ride. Good stuff, though! :)
