[RCT3] Temple of the Feathered Serpent (Indiana Jones)

Postby MayTheGForceBeWithYou » Mon Feb 06, 2012 7:36 pm

MYSTERY AT RECENT MAYAN DISCOVERY HALTS EXPLORATION

JUNE 3, 1937-GUATEMALA Diggers at a recent archeological discovery have been vanishing around the excavation sites, much to the concern of scientists and the superstitious.

The discovery of a Mayan temple by United States archeologist Henry "Indiana" Jones brought shock to the world of ancient history. The motifs and artifacts inside the temple depicted the Feathered Serpent, one of the most revered Mayan deities. Digs at the site uncovered an elaborate labyrinth of passageways and chambers winding deep into the temple's heart; many of these remain unsurveyed since the diggers who explored them never returned.

"We are very concerned about these events," stated Manuel Sanchez, the head of the excavation work at the site, "and we don't know how to address it. We brought Mr. Jones back to check the site, but we haven't heard back from him...and that was last week! We are halting all excavation indefinitely, unless we can get to the bottom of it."

One digger told us his account of one of the disappearances. "I was carrying numerous pots from a hallway back to the main chamber when I heard a loud scream and sounds of a struggle from the next passage," he told us. "I ran over to investigate. All I found was a puddle of blood and a few stray feathers."

Though he does not want to risk his workers, Sanchez is trying to organize an investigative team to try and find Jones. "If there is anyone willing to help at any cost, I will gladly recruit him or her for our search party."

What is happening inside these ruins? Could it be possible the Feathered Serpent is still patrolling this temple that the ancients dedicated to it?

We will keep you updated on this story as more information becomes available...

My ambition may have gotten the better of me. I'm setting off on my biggest project to date, and it will likely take a few months to complete. I will post updates as they come, so be sure to watch this thread for new posts!

Same...the more progress I make, the more excited I get myself. :)

I'll try to get a few screenshots tomorrow to actually show where I am. Best I have for now are the teasers above. Temple overview was from about two weeks ago, and the ride itself was taken on Saturday.

EDIT:
FIRST OFFICIAL UPDATE! :b :br :b :br
I've made minor progress with the ride itself, and added the first bits of theming.
*NOTE* Image files are big, so allow ample time for loading...

I really love the concept and those trains are fantastic! Nice little project, definately worth continuing. Would this be put inside a building of some sort?

I had been wanting to do an Indiana Jones style ride for a while, but I never thought of a good way to actually execute it. I never really liked the EMV CTRs I've played around with, and they had some really crippling limitations (constant speed, low variety of track pieces, etc). This one really seemed to free up the constraints I thought I had.

To answer your other question, the ride will be enclosed into show scenes. It's just going to be a while before I get there. ;)

If you're wondering, the CTR is called "Mine Bender", created by ImagineerJohn over at RevolutionaryRides.net. I'm also wondering where this project goes, as I usually think up scenes with little (if any) previous planning; I'm essentially making it up as I go! :lol:

ANOTHER UPDATE!!
Little work done on the actual ride today, but I made up for it with working outside the show scenes. I present to you my next update, where we look at the queue...

I said "queue", not "Q". :roll:

Here's the mostly-completed cavern. May change a few little things, but that's pretty much the basic way I like it.
