Title: Theme Park Contest [Results]
Post by: Soaring Wings on February 20, 2017, 01:59:18 AM
I wanted to host a very unique Create-A-Park contest. Instead of making a skate-park, city, or factory the contestants have made a theme/roller-coaster park. The parks where not judged base on how skateable it is, rather the creativity of the rides, design of the park, and how closely the the park follows the building codes set by the rules .

On the day of judging, I will make a video of your park and mascott and upload it to my youtube channel after all participating judges besides my self have sent me the scores.


What can be a coaster
All coasters should be built with the intention of having perfect rail enabled
Any kind of connected rail loop, breaks are allowed in the station and what ever method is used to get the train its power. (Launch Station, Chain/Boost Hill, Ladder)
You are free to decide how to get the coaster it's momentum. (Launch pads to olly, Starting at a high place, ect are all accepted, but you shouldn't have to jump on/off the rail/track to get its momentum
Down Hill Bobsled/Salom Track
Bobsleds are okay for players to gain momentum on there own power, but gravity or some launch system should give them a large chunk of there momentum
Bobsleds are allowed to have jumps with breaks in the track in them, as long as the jump is relatively easy to make.

What can be an alternative ride?
A Race Track. (Must be a circuit track)
A Free Fall Ride
A Target jump ride, kind of similar to that in Super Monkey Ball example:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBEWTAbvp94
A Hedge Maze
Transportation Ride
Basically any attraction that is a ride or has some form of interaction

The Mascot
Your Mascot will be represented as a CAS that you make
Your Mascot should embody the general feel of your park

The pole/chainlift was actually a really cool idea.

Thanks for the rating.It's a real shame the maps have a rail limit though,it would be real cool if the rail tool wasn't limited.

I've no suggestions of contests for now,but depending on the theme,i might give it a try.

I was just placing rails and then the joint was over,the green line disappeared.I have also noticed some time before doing this map that if you copy and paste too much rail pieces,the game crashes
