  1. This thread still exists people! This is probably one of my favorite shots ever...
  2. I'm in possession of a rare color photograph from Opening Day of 1900. It's the only valuable possession I have left. It reminds me of the magic this place has. I hope you all can find some connection to it as well. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I hope you all are making it in these tough times. It feels like every day is getting harder for me. I've had to work my ass off looking for job after job.. You'd think it'd be a little easier for a man of my previous stature to get employed.. Guess not. As it stands right now, I'm making zero in terms of money, my prized and cherished theme park has gone down the drain, I have no house, Roosevelt's New Deal is just making me skeptical. Actually, regarding my house, I just recently went to check on it. It's become old and decrepit. Infact, the whole park has. There's not a sound coming from it except for maybe a few birds in the ceiling. The place reeks of marijuana smoke and shame..
  3. You need to turn the draw distance for your supports off in the options. It's the quickest, most hassle free way, especially if the woodie is the only coaster in the park and it is being fully supported.
  4. I toned it down a bit in my edit... I seem to generalize stereotypes that I come in contact with. Of course there's good women who know how to act properly.
  5. I know! They make themselves look like complete idiots, and then go around blaming somebody else for any consequences they get. Just today I was at my friends for dinner. And his sister was trying to ask him why one of our friends was being weird around her girl friend (she's been obsessed with him for MONTHS, he hates her, they refuse to see that, of course). She then didn't even wait for a reply from the majority and explained it all in her own twisted fantasy land about how they're gonna have everything they want with no regard for anybody else and especially not the real world. Then I say 'No, that's not at all how it is' and before even completing my sentence am promptly told to shut the f*** up and am screamed at at the dinner table with his parents and siblings present, being called a jerk and yada yada as she storms off looking like a complete idiot. Why are women such sensitive ignoramus's?? They pretend to live in their perfect twisted fantasy land. They act like they're the only ones who know anythingr. And when they aren't, they lie to make it seem like they are. Scolding anybody who challenges them. They're children. I hate to cross such a sensitive boundary, but as soon as we give them power, they abuse it turning themselves into the alpha-female.By calling us sexist, they fail to see how sexist they are. They beg for more rights, but they're already our equals, why do we insist on giving them the platform for which they can destroy? Nobody sees what the women do to the men, yet somehow the men are nothing but slobs with no feelings, needs, or cares for anything. Of course the only thing they see is what we can't do. Without men, women would have no source of power. Without men to attack and torture, women would have nothing to hold their self esteems at such a high level. For this reason, I can't give most women much respect. They thrive off of failure. I see the gears of their workings, and fail to see any reason they should be held so highly and with so much influence. There's part two of my rant... I could go on for a long time about this. It really irks me...
  6. Glad you're bringing this over here! You'll be sure to find un-biased posters, and plenty of them! Still looking great, and welcome!
  7. Jack Rabbit at Kennywood. I have sort of an obsession for the place... Happened to be the ride you don't see a ton of, despite its awesomeness!
  8. That isn't the Lost Kennywood sign. That's the gift shop in the plaza in front of the fountain by the Plunge. Not sure if you know that or not.. Gosh.. I started the base coat today and this is gonna get messy!
  9. I hate high school girls. I can't stand the way they act... their morals.. beliefs.. their better than everyone "I'm in charge" attitude.. Their "I'm just a defenseless little angel" excuses.. Their excessive sensitivity.. but especially how they are somehow ALWAYS right.. even though they're ALWAYS wrong!! It's as if they have no clue how to compose themselves other than like a child... Sadly this basically sums up the only bad parts of the last 4 months for me...
  10. Awaiting a coat of paint... Shitty quality because I have neither a scanner nor proper camera! I tried my best to edit it to a tolerable level.
  11. PLEASE change the colors of that Intamin! It looks like poop (literally!) Otherwise this park is great, you've got some nice architecture and ideas that just need a little tweaking and renovating. Also, I would try and reduce use of Spice's Trees, they will kill your park if you continue with it. Use the in-game ones. Your graphics engine on your computer won't make them look all that different since your computer doesn't appear to have a great graphics card. But the difference will be MUCH more fluid gameplay.
  12. This sounds like an excellent oppurtunity! Right now I can't think of a need for it, as I'm not making any videos, but if you check my park I'm sure that at some point in the future I'd love to recruit your help.
  13. These tracks all look great! I wish my RCT2 weren't so rusty or I'd blow you all out of the water. Oh well, I guess I'll have to wait for another RCT3 track...
  14. I HATE Lady GaGa. I hate that entire genre of music. Just like rap, hip hop, and techno. I know it is an opinion and the majority of people will agree with me, but I just cannot stand mainstream music. I have to agree. Haha, I try and cover it up a bit... But it's still pretty awful. Lady GaGa wastes talent. She likes Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson, yet her music is nothing like them... WHY???
  15. As if things couldn't get any worse, it's now come out that the park was planning a comeback attraction that could have held the park for a few years. Unfortunately, funds ran dry before the track could even take shape. The train would have recycled the Loop-de-Loop station, and provided transportation to and from the pool and to the entrance. But unfortunately this investment came too late, as the park finally fell into the deep red. As of now, there seems to be no hope for recovery, the park is decaying and each day that goes by that the park is inactive, things become worse and worse, not just for the park, but the whole country. A scene of what could have been. The roof is collapsing, and the paint on the Cyclone has peeled off almost entirely. Leaving us to wonder what this place will look like in 5 years.
  16. I'm hoping in the next few weeks I can upload my Kennywood Volcano art... It's been sitting in a display case for a long time. And I'm starting another painting, I want to do something else from Kennywood, but am stumped after looking through hundreds of pictures. The medium is acrylic, and I'm not extremely good at it yet, so anybody with ideas give me some!
  17. Good to hear. As you said, there's plenty who have realistic parks, not in RCT2 style. Regardless, this thread is on its way, and is so far looking very good!
  18. Has any thought been given towards incorporating rct3 into this?
  19. Ahh, you would be correct on that. My bad! I always try not having more than one water body for that same reason. It's a pain in the arse.
  20. Okay, how's this: Everything looks exceptional, but I am not all too fond of the building in the second photo. Unless that dome thing isn't actually part of the building, in which case I think it is fine. Everything else is great. I've had some mixed opinions on the building. It's based off of Middle Eastern style, as I've seen occassionaly in old parks and cities trying to mimic another style of foreign architecture in small doses. The old building masked the dome a little better, now the building is a little more polished off and simplified for better or worse. I'm not trying to nod off criticism, and I will take a look at the building for future development and hopefully make it a little nicer. I had many thoughts about what to do with the building and that seemed to fit best. Here's my reference building for comparison. Similar, but not exact. You can see that the dome is trimmed off at the bottom with a wall, different from mine. http://www.twip.org/photo/middle-east/israel/photo-10162-14-08-08-06-24-03-xl.jpg
  21. I'm currently working on the destruction...errr...reconstruction...errr...progression of my park! Dunno, does the park seem 'abandoned' enough?
  22. I'm really looking forward to this season. I find it real unlikely that I go before June though. Hopefully I can get my friends onboard though. The season seems like it's shaping up to be a good one with all the improvements they've made in the offseason, notably the retracking that went on on numerous rides particularly Thunderbolt.
  23. I believe I have the answer you're looking for... The game engine sucks, so it only renders fully reflective water on one level at a time. That body being body A, or whichever you decide to fill in first. It doesn't matter how good your computer is, or how high your settings are, that's what the game will always do. If you intend on having water bodies, you can still have multiple 'bodies' being reflective, they just have to have the water level at the same elevation in both bodies, as you were saying sometimes changing water level fixes it. And if you plan on taking and presenting pictures, I would stray from placing water rides (boats) in the water, as you can't remove the water then. You'll just have to fill the body you want reflective. Sadly, the game has many hidden limitations. Hope this helps!
