  1. The first beautiful train for the new Eurosat "Cancan Coaster" arrived: Source: https://epfans.info/?id=4919&lang=&PHPSESSID=17406022e83306729edbd18810ee5859
  2. Official video from testing: [youtu_be] [/youtu_be]
  3. Please do not post things on our forum unless you actually know what you are talking about. Last time I checked, the coaster at Margate in the UK looks NOTHING like Wodan. Don't be like Trump and spread Fake News. We are better than that. Sorry, I should check that before posting, you are right. I life in a city close to the park and had a barbecue when all of our towns firefighters drive by in direction to the park. A friend just said that there are pictures of Wodan burning too. I already wondered how this could happen because Wodan is a good amount away of the pirates ride. I should have taken a good look at the picture than would have seen it is not Wodan. So sorry for that overhasty post. Just sad to see a part of my childhood in my home park burning down. But glad no one got serious injuries.
  4. On Twitter are pictures from Wodan wooden coaster burning too.... Sad day
  5. The black track you see in the picture is indeed the old track. They mentioned that they need to replace small parts of the track at one time to maintain the static of the the construction. But they will replace all the track piece by piece. And yes it was necessary because the ride was planned for about 20 years of lifetime and I think some track parts needed to get refurbished. And they add a second station for VR rides, so they have now two rides in one. They will use most of the original layout but they said they will add two new elements. In one interview one of the Mack's even mentioned one thing will be worls first. But not sure if he means an element on the ride or something about the theming (maybe an 360 degree projection).
  6. There is a nice german report of visiting the construction area of the eurosat with nice pictures from inside: https://ep-board.de/viewtopic.php?p=185394#p185394
  7. My latest latest workshop item. Enjoy! SkyRipper - this extreme coaster is high adreline rush for crazy people. A complete coaster around a huge tower. It is inspired by the SkyScrapper Tower Coasters which are planned to be build in the US. But i decided it to create it as workshop-item. So there is very little theming, cause i needed all parts to get it running. Most of the supports from the Tower are completly hand placed. So have fun riding it and rate if you like it (or maybe dislike it)! Steam-Link: steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=858735799 Here is the Video: [youtu_be] [/youtu_be] and some pics:
  8. Thx... i tried to get as much as possible into this ride with the 2000 pieces blueprint limit. Still hoping that they will make this limit higher (at least 3000 pieces would be great ). And i really hope they are adding more theming parts and animatronics... they are really limited at the moment. Or maybe SDK-Tools for modders would be great
  9. My first full dark ride for Planet Coaster. Worked hard to get it done with the 2000 pieces limit (we need more..... PLEEEEASSE [haha] ) . But i got it work to get a good amount of triggered scenes into the ride. So while i tried to get a good amount of detail inside, i had nearly no pieces left to do some outside theming... so it looks a bit ugly on the outside but i think it will spare a lot of work to get a cool dark ride in the park and just need to theme it on the outside so that it fits nicely.... have fun trying it: UPDATE: Fixed the bug that caused the workshop item to be "obstructed" all the time when you try to place it. Should work now fine Feedback is always appreciated Onride: [youtu_be] [/youtu_be] Steam-Workshop Link: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=821772360 Some pics: and some pics from the early stage to take a look an the track layout and on some scenes before the roof was put on the building:
  10. ^ that is right! It will be a kind of self controllable powered motorbike coaster with fast acceleration (up to 1.2gs) and can reach a top speed of 60 km/h (ca.38 miles per hour). It has a new developed system which controlles speeds via gears and a gear rack on the rails. The gear rack is designed to has low attrition and to be easy replaceable. And the system is even usable as transport system for factories. If you want to see the prototyp of the factory version take a look into this PDF from the manufacturer... It will help to understand how this will work (trains on page 1, gear rack on rails on page 2): www.hebezeuge-foerdermittel.de/sites/dev.hebezeuge-foerdermittel.de/files/HF0415_Foerdersystem-fuer-schwere-Lasten_web_0.pdf
  11. Great pics and report as always... nice to know that you are still like our European Parks so much. And little fun fact about River Quest: Did you know that it had a kind of Freefall/DROP-Element in it, but it was deactivated because of some safety reasons from the German-TÜV. It was the last drop... this one was contructed to stop the boat and then fall down, but if i remember right the missing safety belts in the boats made it to risky that someone could get hurt. Here is one pic i found which shows the mechanism: pic source: https://www.phantafriends.de/topic/15-mystery-river-quest/
  12. If you are looking into the picture gallery of the source, than you will realize, that the last picture shows a water park four times as big at it is now. The original plan was to build it with two more outdoor and two more indoor areas. They announced first that it is planned to build the world biggest water park, but later they changed the plans to start with a smaller sized Park and expand it over the years.
  13. Here is my first onride of my PLC adventure-darkride: edit: Sorry wrong thread... this was meant for the PLC-Thread
  14. So here is the onride video... my pc is not the fastest one, it sometimes has some frame drops. But i have to mention that even with that old pc i have PLC runs wonderful on my old desktop thingy. So have fun watching, not everything is perfect, but it is some fun to ride i think
  15. Thanks. Yeah i got it enclosed allready... was a lot of rock work. But it still need some details on it. And i ran into the problem that the supports run trough everything. So it wasn`t possible to build rides on top of it. Still some work needs to be done on some details, but when it is ready, i will upload a video maybe this weekend. But till then i can add some project photos from working on it some times last week. But it still missing details on the mountain and maybe some rides around the mountain... so here are some more pics: A little bit of details added: in this one i added a smoke effect in the curve before the treasure cave. But cause you don`t can´t controll speed in a good amount of the alpha you are racing a bit fast in this part. So it will be hardly to realize that it is there. In this pic i started adding rocks for closing the main-lifthill. It really looks great during night time. Another small detail added in that pic. I decided that the area in the lower left corner of the image was a bit empty. So i added this small red mini-vulcano thingy to that sceneand it has a bit of smoke effect, too. Another detail that will be hidden and which is just barely visible during the ride... cause you are a bit fast at that part. What can´t be seen in this pic is that i moved it back a bit some time later, because it was to close for a headchopper. Two lights giving it the right ambient look. So here the rock-work is one quarter done. Still a lot work to do. The next day i nearly finished to completly enclose the ride, but still some wholes in there. But it is starting to look really nice... even on daylight! This is the next screenshot i`ve done... it some time after completing it. And started to build a vulcano on top if it. This is why it maybe get a name change for final ride on the weekend. Will end this short update with this detail of the vulcano... hope you had some fun.
