On here there are some pretty incredible custom train and custom scenery makers, but I've never seen a CFR. And even if there were, I don't think anyone would make one just for you, it's a really long process and really a bit pointless as there is a ride incredibly similar to it already in existence.

Thanks for the help a few posts back. Still having some small issues. The game freezes up unless I start to place a ride before I even open the scenery panel. Not too bad, but if anyone knows a way to fix this, that would be great. I downloaded shyguy's Main Street sets (all 8), but only 5, 6, 7, and 8 show up in the game. Any suggestions? Sorry for all the questions, I'm still relatively new to CS. Thanks!

1. I download the sets.

2. One by one, I unzip them directly into style/themed.


Viewing style/themed from the mac side of my computer (i also run windows on it).

3. After confirming that all appear in style/themed, I start RCT3.

4. I open up my game (Boulder Leisure Park).

5. First, I begin to place a flat ride. If I forget this step, the game freezes as soon as I click on any button in the scenery menu.

6. I open the "walls" menu. Only sets 5, 6, 7, and 8 appear.

7. If I do not save frequently, the game freezes and Windows says "Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 has stopped working".

8. I restart the game and continue where I left off.


It's quite annoying, and I've looked all over the internet for other solutions. At the recommendation of other sites, I have also tried extracting to my Desktop, and then dragging to style/themed. I have downloaded other sets as well. Some of them show up in the game, some do not. I have no idea why this happens.


If you look at my thread (link in signature), in my latest post you'll see a goofy looking building designed with usable portions of the Main Street sets. I've now resorted to using roofs from the "colored walls" set that comes with the game to go with that building, and it looks tacky:






Any advice is helpful. I hope I explained well enough. Thank you for your continued help!

I have a Macbook Pro 15" Core i5, and I've found that all of RCT3's Mac issues are resolved by installing RCT3 on a Windows partition using Boot Camp.

I'm not a Mac user so I'm probably not going to help much. Do you have all the updates, and Soaked and Wild? I don't recall off hand, but I think a couple of his sets required the add ons.


It's the only thing I can think of at this point.

I need some help with the scenario editor, how can I get my land for my park bigger?


What is there in the scenario editor cannot be made any larger, that's as big as land goes.


Also, this may be a stupid question, but I forgot the cheat that is used to take away the menu icons to take a decent picture in game, anyone know how?
