Project: Egypt (RCT2)


Recommended Posts

I've always been fascinated with my travels to Egypt. Well, I thought it would be fitting to start a new park (RCT2) based on those travels. I have done several Egyptian-themed parks in the past, but never really had time to finish them (boredom and work main 2 reasons). Hope to stay on course with this park. Enjoy!

The more developed areas are looking rather nice. The landscaping is a bit distasteful, but works in larger areas. Rather than copy the same foliage pattern in large and small areas, why not try more subtle, manicured foliage in smaller areas, namely those entirely surrounded by path?

^Will do.....thanks.

Work still progressing on Project Egypt....still in process of finalizing some names for attractions as well. I'm pleased with most of the results thus far.....still some tweaking to do for sure (in some areas). Hope you enjoy.

With the Holidays fast-approaching, construction of my Egypt park has slowed a bit. But, here are some recent pictures of current progress.

SCR291.thumb.jpg.7b98422aa1ba5d319841d7a16e774ad8.jpg

Nefertiri's Curse Plaza area. I'm happy how the area turned out.

SCR292.thumb.jpg.cde00e31497e8e2b8b66731379975f72.jpg

You can get a glimpse of the current state of this area. The heavily-themed water ride turned out quite well. Also, you can see the hypercoaster 'Sekhmet' in the background.

SCR294.thumb.jpg.4a1113956b48353e2b7f03548a3e55aa.jpg

The river rapids ride nearly complete. Just a few more touch ups to go.

SCR296.thumb.jpg.3c887d308cad09d4d902ba4d01b880cd.jpg

Theme continues for the last part of Sekhmet as well as a the unnamed water coaster.

What you are winning in your buildings and structures you are losing in the crowding and colors: The park looks great, but it's WAAAY overcrowded on a visual level. Objects and rides are blending in together, and admittedly causing visual distractions.

 

I'd recommend trying this: Balance out your building colors a bit (Not everything has to be sand! That's a huge myth about Egypt!) and re-think the speckeled grounds aspects- go for 'sections' of green vs. sand vs. brown' instead of the patchwork aspects. I think in the long run it will look more clean and will be easier on the eyes.

 

R.D.

Having seen some crowded parks in RCT, I don't really have a problem with crowding in this case as long as it works and it looks nice.

 

The colors could be a bit diversified though. That's probably my biggest issue with this park at the moment. Other than that, it's pretty impressive. Almost reminds me of dmaxba's parks visually.

Thank you for the comments (and critique) of the park. I also believe some of the colors are the same bland style, but it was part of the theme. I have made some changes to the colors of rides and screen shot pictures will show the changes. Meanwhile, the part of the landscaping may have some updates soon. I made the landscape scenery as is due in part that the theme or idea was based of a "Dubai" type of theme park based on the desert and this was the result as most of the greenery has not fully taken shape. That was the thought or idea. I will look at each area of the landscaping and adjust to a more colorful taste. Meanwhile, onto the screen shots (with some updated color schemes). Also, ride names are a work-in-progress.

I know this park is really crowded and everything but for some reason I love it.

 

One thing I noticed though... I feel like you can do more with those freefall towers. First of all, I'd combine it into one combo tower... it looks strange having them separate and then if possible I'd theme it a little more. Most of the park is really busy and well themed and those just look very "thrown together".

Thanks for the comments. Here is another update.

I get what you are saying about the drop towers. One is designed as a free-fall version, while the other is a Space-Shot version....that was the purpose of having both side-by-side. I have updated some of the colors (of rides) a bit and did some tweaking here and there. Let's see what you think.....
