The great circle (For lack of a better name)

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Using a simple height map, i created a big park which i will be filling up with nice attractions. I plan to use the full area in the middle. Every now and then i will provide an update. I will only use vanilla rct2 attractions and scenery. I mostly like to make somewhat realistic rollercoasters, I'm not that great with scenery (But i'll try).

For people who want the scenario, I attached it below. No money, no objective, all rides available from the start. 

If anyone can come up with a better name, I'm listening:D

Park Name: Nippleslicious ... "nipple-licious"  :D 

Thank you. I will 'consider' it:P.

Things i built today:

- Overview:

- Eye of the tiger:
A triple-launch coaster that is first launched up the hill, but without enough speed to make it over. Then it rolls backward, passing the station and into the half loop. After this, it moves forward again, now with enough speed to make it over the first hill. After the hill it enters a cobra roll, a small tunnel, and then the big orange loop. After this it will go through one last inversion and return to the station. For some reason i kept hearing the song 'eye of the tiger' in my head while building this thing 9_9

- Chairlifts:
I just HAD to use that loop in the rollercoaster for something cool.
Also, built a little winding path up the middle mountain (Or 'nipple', if you prefer:D)

Wow, it's amazing how quick the years fly by when you're actually trying t make everything in your park look NICE.

Things I built today:

Tiki Tong area:

An area in vibrant colors, telling the story of the ancient deity Tiki Tong. It has a Launched Freefall, a woodie, and a 3D cinema. Needs some nicer looking fences near the roller coaster. Also i just realised I need to color the car of the launched freefall :P

An enterprise near the entrance (because why not):

Kartventurous:

A dinosaur themed kart track with a fly-over through the station.

Monkey Puzzle:

A nice and small roller coaster, for the smaller monkeys in the park!

Reverse Racers (And srecaR esreveR):

Two dueling reverse-incline launched woodies. First, they are pulled backwards up the chain, after which they will race forward over several hills, switching places a few times until they reach the end of the track. After this, the cars will race again, but now in the other direction! One of the coasters has it's cars starting in reverse:D

Expedition BigFoot:
An expedition through the jungle on BigFoot trucks!

Venomous:

A bright green and purple giga coaster.  First it is pulled up the cable hill after which it passes some hills. Then it turns around in a pretzel-like curve (I was gonna call this coaster 'Pretzlcoatl' but Venomous looked better on the signs:P). After this it passes several more hills, of which one swoops around the first drop. At the end, the coaster passes over the station and into a curve that flies high over the edge of the cliffs, after which it reaches the brake run.

Station building:

I especially like this part where it swoops around the first drop:

Wild wild rapids:

 A river rapids, nicely hidden behind the Venomous roller coaster. I decided to make a rocky area here with several hills and buildings. Behind this area is an unifinished river boat ride which i will show later when it's done :P

Cliff diver:

A vertical drop roller coaster that dives of the cliff, where it turns itself into a big knot. After that, it climbs back to the station using a lift hill. I decided to build the station on the second floor of an existing building, which turned out quite nice (can be seen in the last picture).

A hounted house, sandwiched between on a rock between the tracks of the Cliff Diver.

Overview:

Built some extra paths up the middle section, and also an elevator ride. Almost at 50%!

Splash Manor:

The boat ride that i mentioned yesterday, but had not finished yet :P Just a simple splash boat that travels around and through a big building.

Old Timer Safari & Afterburner:

Two rides that i made to fill up the space between Venomous and Cliff Diver. Old Timer Safari is a vintage car ride that travels through a garden, through tunnels, over the station and beside waterfalls. I could write a big story about Afterburner as well but it is just a Top Spin :P Next to Afterburner I built a food court which isn't very popular (yet).

Wicked:

Every park needs an SLC, right? :P Well, this custom SLC has 7 inversions, with the first one even before the lift hill! Real headbangin' good. Also, I built Scrambler next to it, in matching colors.

Nice park! Needs some touches like headchoppers, small details near paths, benches, bins and lamps. Try to be a bit more inconsistent with bins and benches, try to place them near ride exit so it looks like people can sit there if they don't want to ride the ride or spots that might be used for picknicking etc. I personally like watching walkthroughs, google street view or even vlogs for this. It gives you the time to appreciate the little details and the infrastructure more. Also, try to have somewhat wider paths at the major rides and some shortcuts to create a faster connection between major attractions or a minor path for a good view to make photographs of the rides or to withdraw from the ride violence.

But these are just details.

I will probably add in more details at the end when i run out of space.. or not :P Glad you like it.

Your building at a good click... looking good

Thanks! This is actually the first time I'm making buildings around most of my stations.. Only while building this park i found out you can use CTRL to keep building at the same level as another object 9_9 Makes it a million times less tedious to build something nice.

Things i built today:

Overview:

I built lots of temporary paths to help the peeps get around. Will look better later :P. Also, i finally connected all the stations of the railway around the park.

Shipwreck bay & Boomerang:

Shipwreck bay is a swinging ship next to a big waterfall.  Boomerang is a simple junior reverse-incline launched shuttle coaster, with the start and end suspended over the cliffs.

Yellow submarines:

Because we all live in one :P. I will probably add a helicopter ride above this area. I think it will look cool. And the submarine ride station will get a nice building.

And last but not least: Rocket man!

This launched roller coaster was named after a loser dictator who likes to detonate nuclear bombs. It's true. Very sad. Anyway, I'm quite proud of the building.

Gyrocopters:

Like mentioned yesterday, i built a helicopter ride over the submarines. For some reason it'sreally popular with the guests! :D I also gave the submarine ride a nice station building.

Behemoth:

After the succes of the previous SLC in the park, it was decided the park needed another inverted roller coaster, but with much bigger capacity. Meet Behemoth, a tall B&M inverted coaster with 6 inversions. I really like the lay-out of this coaster and I am happy with how compact i could make it. :D

Only a small update today because I didnt have much time :)

Built Mamba, a big woodie with 2 inclined helices.

I'm quite happy with how this one turned out :D

First helix:

Falcon's fury:

Just a roto-drop tower. :P It fit nicely into the space i had left in that area.

Rush hour:

A car ride which travels through a small city  on three levels. I'm quite happy with how it turned out. It took so long to create all those buildings. :S

Mumbo Jumbo:

A virginia reel that first races downhill through some tight turns, then travels through some big curves, and finishes by going back to the station using a chain lift. I first built the entire track and then later decided to raise the floor under it, which looks pretty good in my opinion. :P

Space center:

A space-themed building with a motion simulator and space rings. Also has a fully functioning rocket! (its only function is being a piece of scenery though).

Silver Speedway:

A LIM-launched rollercoaster, themed as a race track. Gets launched through quick twists and turns while staying close to the ground, and passing through the station building a few times. Keep your head low while riding this one!

Mumbo's keep & Swan Lake

A ghost train that travels through a big castle. Built a swan ride next to it in an artificial lake around one of the towers of the castle.

Rocky Racer:

A mine ride that makes 3 laps through a rocky landscape. Great for the people who are still scared to go on the bigger rides :D

Ktumba:

A steel stand-up coaster that first travels through two loops, then through 2 corkscrews, and then finishes with a helix. Nice and compact lay-out. Fun fact: Ktumba means Dishwasher in Polynafricesian. (I totally didn't just make up that language;))

PopocaPretzel:

I didn't have a flying coaster yet, so i decided to try and build a nice one! After the first drop the coaster goes through sort of a pretzel loop, hence the name :D. After this there are several more inversions, of which one is a one-and a half twist through the station building. I am quite proud of the end result.

Raptor:

A mini rollercoaster that first gently travels through an area inhabited by some giant reptilians, after which it climbs the lift hill, and falls down through some steep hills and twisting turns.

Neon Blast:

I had a little bit of space left, and I wanted at least one coaster to extend outside the middle area. I decided to do this with a reverse freefall rollercoaster :D I gave it some bright colors and I think it looks quite nice.

I also added some rides where i had some space left, like Ktumba's Karpet:

Yeah.. so.. Remember when i said i wouldnt build on the outer area of the park? And when i said i would only add some details.. Just forget i said all of that :P Here's Anomaly, a big hyper-twister rollercoaster on the outer edge of the map.

59ef8be2b5e21_TheGreatCircle2017-10-2420-44-03.thumb.png.d8c8c38c3b1360d359954b0cf1bdeb65.png

Its distinguishing feature is a bridge over the cliffs, which transports the vehicles to the chain lift and back to the station at a gentle speed.
