Universal's Islands of Adventure is my all time favorite theme park, and since I've just recently gotten RCT3 back, I have begun to build my OWN version of one of the best theme parks in the world. I doubt it will be as impressive as many things on these boards, but I just wanted to share what I've recently been building...

 

 

Thank you L-33 for your amazing Port of Entry sets... Port of Entry is one of my favorite themed lands anywhere. In my Port of

Entry's main drag, I have Ocean Market Trader playing. At the end of the street, the music transitions to The Call to Adventure.

 

 

"The Adventure Begins".

 

 

A rainy glance back down the Port of Entry.

 

 

A very WIP shot of my area around Hulk's entrance.

 

 

A most likely unattractive mix of Steelworx (bad) and Moby's Steel Jungle (good).

 

 

A little overview so far. My Hulk really dominates over the Port of Entry.

 

All comments and criticisms are appreciated. Thank you!

Wow! This looks really good so far. I really like the amount of detail your putting into this. The one thing that kind of bugs me is the supports on Hulk, if you look at a pic of the real life Hulk. You'll probably see what I am talking about, anyway I can't wait to see more!

Thank you! And yes, I definitely need to work on the supports. I don't think that they're too bad, but I'll definitely be tweaking them.

 

Looks good so far. What are you gonna do to make it your "own"?

 

It will not be not an exact replica. It will have many of the same lands, themes and rides, but they're placement and the way their executed will certainly be different. My Marvel Super Hero Island is already carried out and set up in a completely different fashion. You'll see next update!

 

Loving the detail and accuracy so far. Keep up the good work!

 

Thank you!

And now on to some more photos of my Islands of Adventure!

 

 

Another view point of Port of Entry, this time just before you enter the park.

 

 

I really like this shot... Looking back down Port of Entry in the rain. So pretty!

 

 

A very incomplete picture of the entrance into Marvel Super Hero Island.

 

 

Hulk's exit pathway, which leads back into Marvel Super Hero Island.

 

 

Another view of my version of Hulk, which shows the train emerging from the Gamma Radiation tube. I know that I need to work on these darn supports, gah.

 

 

Port of Entry at night... Thank you for reading/looking!

Looks good so far. I'm loving the detail you put into the Hulk. That exit path, what CS is that from? I've been searching for something similar. Also, in your final pic I noticed you have a large walkway area for guests. That doesn't confuse them or have them walking in circles? I've always used single paths due to the large path issue had with RCT2 but I've never tried it with RCT3.

 

Can't wait for the next update!

Looks awesome man! IOA is definitely my vote for prettiest park in Orlando, and you're doing a great job of capturing that.

Thank you! I also agree that it is Orlando's most visually stunning parks. Minus a few spots, it is quite the amazingly themed park.

Thank you! The exit path is actually NCS. And no, it doesn't happen in RCT3, but I know exactly what you're referring to with RCT2!

 

------ Update #3: Doctor Doom's FearFall ------

 

 

A beautiful early morning shot with, yes, Doctor Doom's FearFall. The tower spike CS really makes or breaks the ride...

 

 

My version of the entrance into Marvel Super Hero Island. Let me know if you think the letters are too tacky or anything like that... I thought they were fitting for MSHI.

 

 

The entrance to Hulk's queue.

 

 

My version of the Doctor Doom's FearFall facade. I like how it turned out, but I do feel like it is missing something.

 

 

Doctor Doom's FearFall at night. I also like how the lighting turned out. I find that the facade looks very ominous and imposing.

 

Well, that concludes the small update on Doctor Doom's FearFall and other Marvel Super Hero Island progress! All comments and criticisms are very much appreciated

Good job! Gosh I still can't get over on how great the Port of Entry looks!

 

My advice, regarding the letters, would be if you can change the letters, at least for the MARVEL logo. If there is a way to reproduce the actual MARVEL logo, I think it would be better. Also, did you change the train colors of the original Incredible Hulk Coaster? I noticed the test seat car is green and white.

 

The other scenery for MSHI is great though! I can't wait to see more

Thank you for the comment! I will try and see if there is a way that I could change the letters into the MARVEL logo... Maybe a billboard? And no, the test seat has the wrong color scheme. I also need to the change that. Thank you again!

 

------ Update #4: A Question ------

 

I took the advice of Toborg123 and went ahead and downloaded Krypt's space-shot CFR, and replaced both of the in-game towers for Doctor Doom with them. However, I'm not too sure I like how they turned out...

 

 

Even though this is MY version of Islands of Adventure, the towers do have that unchangeable white to them. Is there a way to change the white? Does it look bad and less foreboding? Hmmm.

 

 

Another shot taken from the backstage area of Port of Entry. Do the towers seem too tall?

 

 

A shot from the backstage area of Hulk to show off that white color on the towers.

 

 

A crowded Port of Entry... Just like the real Islands of Adventure!

 

 

And what fun would this be without a little tease... *queue up the John Williams* :yes:

 

All feedback and comments are very much appreciated!

Sorry it's a month after you posted! Um I think they're not too tall, but the white does not go well. I think the original ones were better. Sorry again for not posting.

--- Update #5: Welcome to Jurassic Park ---

 

 

The gates of Jurassic Park seen as guests turn right from the Port of Entry.

 

 

Jurassic Park River Adventure is seen directly ahead.

 

 

Woo-hoo, snacks and a new water ride!

 

 

The infamous JP:RA splashdown. And the patch of grass in the bottom left is definitely a WIP.
