  1. I will probably never use the CTR because 1) I don't play RCT3 much anymore and 2) I wouldn't have any reason to use it regardless. I'm just making a suggestion, because I believe that the cars would be so much more flexible to users if they were re-colorable and without the decals. I know that a Megacoaster CTR had a version specifically with Expedition GeForce decals and another version without them.

     

    You all take this way too seriously. I totally appreciate the time and effort put into it, and it will look fantastic in-game.

     

    The Megacoaster is different though, all of the Mega Coasters have the same train so a recolorable one would make sense. Kingda Ka and TTD both have custom designed trains so there is no "generic" version to make recolorable. Another thing to take into consideration is how long it takes to import these. Think about it, every texture needs to be put into its own group, bones have to be added, and then everything has to be pieced together in the importer. We are already doing that 12 times each for Kingda Ka and Top Thrill Dragster. That is 24 imports for two different CTRs due to all of the variants of each one that will be possible. When we get to the Blitz V2 CTR, that one can be put on the Custom Track so that there can be a generic version to use. We haven't gotten to that yet though.

  2. I'm just saying that you always complain about 1-time use tracks made in N-L that only work for one layout design yet you make a coaster train that only has one use and is made for only one layout. I respect the work you put in, but I would remove the decals.

     

    There is a difference. If I am recreating Kingda Ka, I am making Kingda Ka trains the way that they look in real life. This CTR is part of a Strata Coaster CT set. It will have a Kingda Ka CTR and a Top Thrill Dragster CTR. There isn't a point in removing the decals because it won't be recolorable. It can't be recolorable because it uses 5 different colors and RCT3 only allows 3.

  3. For those who are wondering about the CTR, it will come in each of the 4 colors of Kingda Ka's trains.

    So the cars will all have Kingda Ka decals on them? Bad idea imo.

    I agree. Even if they aren't re-colorable, you really should do a few without the decals on the side.

     

    Also, a consistency issue - the long portion of the restraint that extends from the side of the headrest and wraps around should be placed to the inside of the car, not the outside. You have it correct on the left side of the car (right side in the picture). Like this.

     

    Yea, the cars will only have Kingda Ka decals on them. Why would they need to be generic? Kingda Ka is the only coaster in the world to use those trains.

     

    The restraints are supposed to be like that, I never noticed that they weren't flipped.

  4. So I lost my iPod on Nitro a few days ago. When I went to the Lost & Found they were closed but they gave me a number to call. I've called every day and nobody answers. Does anyone know if there are certain times when they are open? It seems odd but maybe they have certain hours. Also, if by some reason they do have it (I think it fell out of my pocket when I was getting out of the seat, not during the ride) would I have to go to the park to get it back? Thanks in advance.

     

     

    I lost my iPhone on nitro around 9:00am. At 11:00am, I went to the lost and found to file an official claim and they had already found it. They have a dedicated "picking team" that walks the ride paths and collects all lost items. I was seriously impressed that they already had found it. You should contact the lost and found department in person( because you will have to identify something original/specific about your item) as they probably have your iPod .

     

    Lost and Found is located on the far north side of main street, closest to Nitro. I believe their operating hours are park open to 5:00pm.

     

    Thanks so much for the info. I actually saw someone walking around picking stuff up as I went through the MCBR on Nitro (same ride I lost my iPod on). Hope I can get to the park! I live 1.5 hours away, but if I convince my family to get the 2013 season pass we can get in free for the rest of 2012 so it won't be that big of a deal.

  6. That must hurt. But this doesn't surprise me, this is on of the GP. Surprised he didn't suffer a broken neck. Ive always found It "dumb" when people throw their arms up during TTD's launch. It's going to cause you nothing but pain and possibly a broken arm. Just my 2c.

     

    I put my arms up on Kingda Ka and I have never had a problem with it.

  7. RollerSoaker had an absolutely horrible capacity, but it was a pretty fun ride. I went on it every time I went to Hershey just because I was with a group of family so we could chat on line. We always got lucky with a wait starting in the station, but that was still nearly 30 minutes. I think it would be cool if they replaced it with a ride like Divertical, but I'm not sure if they would do that since they already have Tidal Force. I do think it would be a cool addition though.
