I want to host a very unique Create-A-Park contest. This time instead of making a skate-park, city, or factory the contestants will be making a theme/roller-coaster park. Your park will not be judged base upon 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 .

What you will design
You have to design a theme park with the theme of your choice. You must build at least two coaster rides, but more are preferred. Coasters can be any kind of ride that will take you from point A to point B on a specific track either skating or grinding. Your park must also have two alternative rides, but like the coaster more than two are preferred. You will also have to make a CAS to represent your park's mascot.

Park Scoring Criteria
  • Have at least two coasters in your park (5)
  • Have at least two alternative rides in your park. (5)
  • Have a specific theme to your park. (5)
  • Have a central decoration to your park. Gardens, Sculptures, Statues all work. (5)
  • Is the park's paths and zones designated in a logical way to get around to the attractions quickly. Does the park have an entrance/exit? (10)
  • Does the park have a mascott? (5)
  • Is the coaster design creative? (Unique layout, drops, inversions, helixes, ect) (10 + up to 5 for every additional coaster up to 4 total coasters. Max 20)
  • Is the alternative ride design creative? (10 + up to 5 for every additional alternative ride up to 4 total rides. Max 20)
  • Does the park have decor fitting to the theme. (Only counts for places where guests are intended: Paths, Queues, and the attractions them selves). (10)
  • Is the central piece use unique, and creative?, Is it placed at the entrance or center of the park? (5)
  • Does the mascott fit the theme of the park? (10)
  • Aside from thematic decor, is there any additional attention to detail? (Extra areas, ride booths, lines, ect)(10)

Max Score for your park is 110.

Park Penalties
  • Having a coaster that cuts player off at any point along the rail. Or having a bobsled fling a player off the ride without any input from the player. (-5)
  • Using just the Hawaiian Statue without any additions as your center piece. (-5)
  • Having a simple loop as your coaster. (-5)
  • Having your coaster come within 12 feet of the guest areas weather above or behind, unless fenced off. (-5)
  • Having any two or more rides bisect each other along there paths. (-5)
  • Having any coaster or bobsled be required to move using the players own power, no jumping on and off the rail to gain momentum. (Chainhills, launch stations, and ladders are exempt from this)(-5)

Special Scoring
  • Having your coaster have the most drops. (To qualify each drop must exceed 12 feet, and be followed by a minimum of 5 unit long straight away, or turn, or hill). (+5)
  • Longest Drop (To qualify the drop must be followed by a minimum of 5 unit long straight away, or turn, or hill)(+5)
  • Longest Track (+5)

Scoring
Your score will be the average of what the the judges state.

Judges Score is (Park Score Criteria + Special Park Properties - Park Penalties)

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

Dates
1/17/2017 - Contest creation Date
2/7/2017 - Must Submit a Park by this date in order to qualify
2/10/2017 - Last day to make modifications to your park.
2/11/2017 - Judgment Day.

Judges
1. Soaring Wings
2. -Empty-
3. -Empty-

Request in the thread to become a judge.
If you chose to become a judge, you must use the rubric on this post for the specific non-objective quotas.

Notes
This Contest, specifically has objective quotas to try to see what people come up with, and how they choose to achieve that quota. This contest is intentionally supposed to be hard and lengthy so that way nobody can easily whip of a park in a few hours. Custom goals are not required, and unless they are specifically used to enhance an attraction they will not count towards your final score.

Thank you, Soaring Wings, for making this contest for us! I think 2 weeks time for a complicated contest like this is very short, although I do understand why you made it this way. Where do we upload our stuff, by the way?

Whoa! That's a pretty good one!

I have a question - Can the mascot CAS be one imported from a THUG2 mod that fits in THUGPro? For example,the Wiener Vendor:

I guess it can be pushed back an additional week. There really is no rush. I don't know how to use contest page on THPSX, so either PM your CAS and CAP or post your CAS and CAP in the thread.

I never thought about that when I made the thread. Your park's mascot should be a custom one that you made.

Like how many tiles along is 12 feet? Can my theme be depression because my entire park will be grey since thats the only colour available? Whats the prize? How do I guarantee I am winner? Am I allowed to use glitches/mods to get rid of the space limitation and stack objects etc? If I do literally all the things you have asked will I score 100/100 points and get given the Lamborghini prize? Do I need to submit the park by uploading a file online or can u come on t pro and get it in game? Thankyou for your time and I look forward to winning the contest for best meme theme park.

No, the CAS has to be made to fit the theme of the park and also has to be made for this specific contest. Although I guess a Sporrowland would be funny.

Whats a race track?

Basically any track that you make that you can race around on. But the track has to be a complete loop. No  par-core/skate moves (basically buttslaps and boost plants) should be required to complete a lap. Shortcuts or boosters are allowed and it is acceptable to be able to use the par-core/skate moves (again buttslaps and boost plants) to access the faster routes.

Quote
Whats a free fall ride?
 :


Basically anything like that. You are free to choose however you want to make a ride like that.

Quote
Whats a transportation ride?
Anything that you can use to get you around the park. The CAPs most likely won't be huge so creating one may be kind of pointless, depending on how your park is designed.

Quote
Who else is a judge? Can I be a judge?
You can judge

Quote
In the rules u say '12 feet' how do u know how long 12 feet is in game?

Because the block pieces tell how tall they are. 3 units up is 12 feet.

Quote
Like how many tiles along is 12 feet?

About 1.5 units.

Quote
Can my theme be depression because my entire park will be grey since thats the only colour available?
It can, but you have to make it work.


Quote
Whats the prize?
Bragging rights.

Quote
How do I guarantee I am winner?
You can't. Just try to make you park as impressive as possible, and follow the rubric.

Quote
Am I allowed to use glitches/mods to get rid of the space limitation and stack objects etc?
As long as the park can load normally in free skate.

Quote
Do I need to submit the park by uploading a file online or can u come on t pro and get it in game?
Its your choice, either link in the thread, or PM me. I just need to know where I can find your park and CAS.

I want to find a way to advertise this (and the community/forum) in general, to maybe get something going again. (I feel like THUGPro and it's community are pretty much dead and nothing interesting happens, no new players joining, etc.)

What I do now is just tell people about randomly in in-game rooms, people get annoyed of that and they know me as that spammy contest advertising guy. I don't want to be annoying but I sincerely do want some sort of community to grow again.

Does anyone have any tips for me? Also, it seems like when I redirect people here and they DO make an account, they'll be on for an hour, make 2 posts, just to be never seen again. I feel like the top 10 posters will never change.

(insert sadness here)

In my humble opinion, this contest is a bit complicated with too many rules associated with it. When I first saw the post I was interested, but then after I read all of the criteria for it, I decided I didn't want to participate. Please don't get me wrong, a great job was done on it being very detailed and it is explained what is involved very well, there are just so many rules for it- it makes it a challenge to want to participate.

At this point in this series, it is what it is for participation. The series is extrememly old now, and many people will jump on for a bit for their nostalgia fix, and then move along. Without a new update to THUGPro, or a proper new title in the series, it's tough to get people to hang around for very long.

There are some behind-the-scenes things in the works with thpsx.com right now, and we're tossing around some ideas to keep things fresh and interesting, as well as try and keep people interested, involved, and playing the games. Stay tuned for all of that...

I give SoaringWings props for trying to do something on a contest here. My encouragement would be, if something like this is done again, keep it a bit more simple. It should be approachable and something that people could do in a couple/few hours. 100% my opinion, and please SoaringWings don't take offense to the feedback. I, personally, have run multiple contest/tournaments/events/etc over the course of this series, so just trying to pass along some of the things I've learned over time.

Hey Wings. Here's an ironic message from Chatter.

I regret to inform you that I am not participating in this contest. I'm not very motivated to join this one, and it is partially due to the contest being overly complicated. It makes me feel shitty because I am that one go who'd do anything for stuff  to happen and redirecting people here and everything.

Sorry.

I downloaded and played this, and I was very impressed! I'm especially impressed by people who can use the rail tool properly, I just don't know how people do it, my custom rails are the messiest thing ever. Overal, I was surprised how ''easy'' the requirements seemed all of a sudden, it seemed like you hadn't had to go all out, you kept it small, nice and proper, which surprised me and was very nice to see.

Thanks! You can move rails easily by zooming in,which will slow down the speed,allowing you to make it better to move and to organize.
