I should hopefully have The Glen ready for this month.

I'm probably going to enter my new and improved Pirate Beach. I really like how it turned out after making some changes and improvements to it.

I'll have Adobe Creek ready. pwahahahaha!

It's strange that we all got awards lol, but then they aren't undeserved.

I was going to enter Fireball Island, but it needs extensive reworking before i'll be happy with it. Also being ill recently I just don't think I'll get it done by the 24th.

Hey,

you all got awards because three of you were joint in second place with three votes each.

I'm hoping that Bluebell Wood will be finished in time for August but we'll see. I'm away on holiday for some of the month so I might not have time to get it done and I don't want to rush it.

08-05-2003, 02:51 PM
Oooo... more compition! Oh the thrill of running, even when i loose it's still amusing. I'm hoping to have Adobe Creek done but then again i really need to get some more done on the coladro park and I've started reading Clanseys again (it burns a few hour a day... Good Stuff). Still you can bet on me competing even if Adobe Creek isn't done... I'll enter the *slightly* improved Virginia Lake is nothing elce. And sfgadvKing, what happened to your new parks? You used to put them out quite often but recently you haven't been doing much of anything (that's been finished).

yeah i know, the last one i finished was pirate beach. i then worked on my section of the collabo which i think is my best work yet but its a differant style. i cant really use that style in my jungle park so i havent really been "imspired" to work on it lately. i will most deffinatly finish the jungle park (even if it means filling up A LOT of space with water). maybe i'll work on it today.

Skye

i put FI on hold for a bit....i'm working on something else now. Its going to take a while though to finish, probably for september though.

but not against this new park......screens wouldn't show much yet (its very spread out) but i will post a thread soon about it.

ride6
08-17-2003, 03:29 PM
Yeah, and mine won't be ready till sept. I would've finished it except i was kicked off the computer for a couple days over a little bit of fusteration (stupid, but my mom is EXTREMLY touchy right now). Not to mention that i've been working on the Collobo insted as well...

Skye
08-17-2003, 05:18 PM
so whats your park? You posted something beach? Can't wait to see it anyway. You know what my park is (time twister thread) so you can see what your competeing against. Sfgav king ias only one to post park so far.........

Valpengeist
08-17-2003, 06:18 PM
With parks being due this Friday, and only having one park entered, I think a combination of the August and September TNPPs would work quite well...

Skye
08-17-2003, 07:24 PM
sfgav king, i tried to open pirate beach but i get an error. anyone else get this?

ride6

Um, Adobe Creek. It's excellent... Maybe i should bring back that thread with a screen or two....

And Valp, next month will be very interesting with Intamin101 finishing DSP, Me finishing Adobe Creek, Coasterkidmwm finishing that one of his... etc.

Probably a good idea, but not too soon before voting. maybe a couple of days before voting starts.

Well i'm not going to be able to get it done in time for this month.... Next maybe.

I'm gonna get Kiddie Land in next month.

Is August and Sepetember going to be merged because ill enter my mini park i have for this month.

ride6
08-21-2003, 01:14 PM
oh yeah. They will be unless 3 or 4 parks suddenly appear out of thin air...

Skye
08-22-2003, 07:13 AM
well i just started my entry (time twister is on hold) but its going well. its not a huge park but i think the quality will make up for it.........

ride6
08-22-2003, 05:09 PM
Yeah. I think i may be able to finish Adobe Creek in time after all. Man if the deadline was a day later i know i could.

Skye
08-23-2003, 02:42 PM
huh? Just put it for september. Theres not enough entries anyway for august so no point in rushing it.

Rebel2000
08-23-2003, 10:28 PM
As some of you may have guessed, the deadline is being extended to encompass September, too. Now I don't want to see anyone pulling out parks because "Intamin101 may finish his soon" or something. Grow some freakin' balls.

BTW, this will be a combined RCT2/WW contest. We barely get any submissions as it is, so there's no point in running two contests. Just be warned, if you build a WW park, you run the risk of not many people being able to see your park. Ride6 took that risk last month and it actually payed off, so... just do what you feel like.

ride6
08-23-2003, 10:33 PM
So when is the deadline extened to??? I'd happily enter mine against Intamin101s even if it'll get distroyed. :D Oh well, i could still manage silver or Bronze. So when is the new deadline?!

Rebel2000
08-23-2003, 10:55 PM
10 pm ET, Tuesday, September 23rd.

ride6
08-23-2003, 11:00 PM
Oh, this otta' be good. Intamin should have his done by then.

So what? I'll be competing. :cool:

Skye
08-24-2003, 02:01 PM
well you haven't seen my entry yet.

ride6
09-03-2003, 10:52 PM
I'm taking warning but i'm not too scared... After all Adobe has lots of cool suprises that aren't in the screens. I know that doesn't sound possable with the size of the park but just wait...

SFGadvKing
09-04-2003, 06:50 PM
shut the hell up ride6. i've really gotten sick of all your cocky remarks. skye's park could very well be a great park and i sure hope it kicks your park's ass. i used to think you were a good parkmaker and one of the best up and comming but now im just sick of all your cocky remarks. as for me, i will take out pirate beach and im going to enter brazilian adventures.

Rebel2000
09-04-2003, 11:08 PM
Just remember this: skills and modesty is a good combination, but skills and arrogance is a bad combination.

Skye
09-05-2003, 12:42 PM
my entry is unlikley to be finished this month.

ride6
09-06-2003, 11:36 PM
Sorry, god. I'll quit with telling the truth lased with sarcasim since everyone seems to be all POed at me for it. Good lord. I guess i'll stop saying anything... I'll let you say what you think of my stuff. okay, I'm offically trying to stop making cocky remarks now.

Rebel2000
09-07-2003, 02:28 AM
Ride6, no other member at this site openly ranks themselves above other members, and I want to keep it that way. It makes for a much friendlier atmosphere, something you won't find at other sites like NE. So stop telling the "sarcastic truth" or whatever you want to call it. The truth is, there is no truth, and no one wants to hear your version.

how do i enter or where

Rebel2000
09-08-2003, 04:20 PM
First upload your park in Speedzone (http://www.thrillnetwork.com/speedzone), then post in the Submissions (http://www.thrillnetwork.com/boards/showthread.php?s=&threadid=25677) thread with a link to it.

ride6
09-08-2003, 09:18 PM
Yeah, I'll be entering Adobe Creek this month. Anyhow sorry about all the trouble. I can be easily provoked and such. Thanks for helping me see why it was a problem and more power to ya' for it.

Anyhow i look forward to seeing all the competition this month.

Skye
09-11-2003, 01:47 PM
i haven't even looked at my park for ages. sorry, i've just been so busy i haven't been able to play much rct (or any game). I might be moving as well and won't have access to a computer to play games so its possible it might never be finished, and i might not be able to make another park.

This probably means leaving this site for months at a time as well (i'll still visit ocassionally though!)

ride6
09-23-2003, 04:48 PM
Damn! Will we run a contest with only four enterys??? hmm. I hope so. If not it's a real bummer.

ride6

Rebel2000
09-23-2003, 10:53 PM
Let's have a vote. If you want to extend the contest again, vote yes. If you want to end this contest now and start the voting, vote no.

Skye
09-24-2003, 06:33 PM
my entry (real time twister park) has been delayed until at least december.

speedviper53
09-24-2003, 08:35 PM
Nooooooooooooooooooo!

I finished Forest Haven and its September 24th!!!! Cutoff date is the 23rd!

Damn, im never gonna win anytrhing with landslide valley. Oh well, i guess october looks pretty good.

ride6
09-24-2003, 09:10 PM
*sigh*. Just cancel untill November i guess. That should let some parks build up in the line so we can finally get a decent number.

good idea, have about 6-7 parks then, people might actually finish them. Ride6 do you want to help me finish time twister park?split the credit 50/50? Its taking ages, and i got the coaster designs but theres loads of scenery to do. Reply quickly cause i lose my internet access in 2 days!

ride6
09-27-2003, 01:34 PM
Sure Skye. It won't be done anytime soon though. But hey with 2 projects going i dought that i can get bored with both.

But i'll finish it, since you want me to. Just E-mail the park to Mroot63@aol.com and i'll get it tonight.

Skye
09-27-2003, 04:07 PM
well i still want to add some coasters. I accept your'll have to make changes here and there...and i still want credit for work i've done! those are my best coaster designs!

i'll put it up here and Pm you the password, if you agree to all of the above^.

ride6
09-27-2003, 04:53 PM
Why wouldn't I? I won't mess with any of the coasters, infact i may not build any new one either and you will get credit for you work. Feel free to send the password (and where i'd have to use it exactly) whenever you can.

Skye
09-27-2003, 05:19 PM
ill add some more first they aren't all there. I'll put the park up tomorrow here, it is on the other computer i can't be bothered to do it now.

ride6
09-28-2003, 09:42 PM
Well please hurry! Put it up Monday or otherwise we're sol. I'm happy to finish it but if i never get it well.... Project Shores it will be then...

Skye
09-29-2003, 06:18 AM
ok i'll put it up now! I need to switch to the other computer so it'll take me about 10 mins.

Skye
09-29-2003, 06:31 AM
ok here it is. please just keep my coasters intact. Anyone else the password is designed to be be maximum hacker-proof so don't bother guessing. thats not a challenge, just wait until its finished! Ride6 you can pass it back to me to add coasters if want. If you want to add coasters i would just say keep it realistic to fit in with what i've already done. (my rides are ultra-realistic). I'll PM you the password seperatly.

Skye
09-29-2003, 06:37 AM
rid6 your inbox is full so it ca'nt be sent. I try again tonight but i don't have the computer for the next two months so i'll send it to mod who can pass it on to you.

ride6
09-29-2003, 09:23 PM
oh sorry about that. I just emptied it. I sure hope i wasn't too late :sad:. I hope i still get it...

Skye
10-01-2003, 11:08 AM
i gave it to mikec to pass to you.

Skye
10-04-2003, 01:33 PM
i sent it to you. Who else downloaded it!?? I did once, ride6 might have, but there are more! It is password protected, you won't be able to open it. And a zip cracker won't find the password even if you have Four 3ghz computer, well not for about 2 years anyway!

coasetrphil
10-04-2003, 05:21 PM
I downloaded it, just to see when you would be asked for a password. I didn't even know you could protect a file with a password.

Skye
10-04-2003, 06:19 PM
its not a file its an archive, which limits access to the files it contains, through use of a password.

You can't extract the files without it. You can hack the archive for a password but i understand its a lot of effort.

Alternativly you can use a program to guess the password, in two ways:

-Try every word in order

-Use a dictionary (actually this works very well on predictable people. for example most people here would probably use a coaster phrase, its easy to remember. So a coaster dictionary would have the password in maybe 1min or less if it was something like "SFMM" or "cedarpoint").

Someone had a file, and thought they would be clever, and as they had an interest in latin, they thought i wouldn't get it, cause i don't know anything about latin. which is true - i don't. But i just got a latin dictionary and found it straight away.

So the moral is - use numbers and late letters (XYZ etc) in your passwords!

Drewbie
10-04-2003, 08:58 PM
So anyways, when is the next PP? I might have Volcano Manor done, but it depends when it will be. Maybe I missed it, but let me know.

Skye
10-05-2003, 01:13 PM
did you get it?

coasetrphil
10-05-2003, 02:16 PM
I might be getting The Glen going again, so I'm hoping to enter it as soon as possible.

speedviper53
10-08-2003, 08:39 PM
Is this contest ever gonna get going? Are we ever gonna vote or is it gonna say August/September submissions forever?

Skye
10-10-2003, 08:13 PM
probably not until later now. People are taking ages to make their parks.

ride6
10-10-2003, 09:08 PM
I have it skye but your password didn't work. Please send me it again, make it the right one this time.

Skye
10-11-2003, 02:12 PM
i checked it carefully. it should work. i'll try again but maybe the archive is corrupt?

ride6
10-11-2003, 10:06 PM
Maybe, all i know is i couldn't access it before, I'll try with the "new" password tonight.

Skye
10-12-2003, 02:51 PM
i hope its not case sensitive. Try all capitals maybe?

Skye
10-17-2003, 06:00 PM
i had a look at it again and decided that park needs too much work. You can carry on if you want though

Riddler156
10-28-2003, 05:41 PM
Are we gonna go on with the contest? I have a park that I want to enter...

speedviper53
10-28-2003, 11:13 PM
yeah really, its been like two months since the last one (maybe 3!)

Skye
10-31-2003, 06:25 PM
yeah october has already gone. i think it will happen, people just needed a break to finish their existing projects.

just wait, we just need to get people interested in this again. another date needs to be set - december 15th?

ride6 has dissappeared, and others have gone very quiet.

I have a park to enter (a real park). It won't win but it'll boost numbers. i think i might have a second park as well (again not a wining park, but has some interesting ideas i think, so worth a download if just to steal them :) )

We need one huge contest with lots of entries, lots of advertising on this site, so even non-park makers can vote (this site has loads of people who never post here).

MachChunk
11-19-2003, 10:35 PM
Are you sure this contest will ever get to voting time? It's already past midway November.

Whenever we get to voting, I'll probably vote for Brazilian Adventures because it was very well advertised.

Skye
11-28-2003, 09:55 AM
i started a new park, it'll be ready on about a month...

Rebel2000
11-28-2003, 10:53 AM

Well, someone needs to take this over. This is pretty pathetic if no one else does this or is picked to do this.

Not literally, since we all know he got a new job.

ride6
07-28-2004, 10:47 PM
Yeah. We all moved away or died of boredom, so i don't think this will be coming back anytime soon. Get No Limits if you want to compete here or head to NE (ne.designs.com) or RCT2.com (rct2.com) if you want to see big rct communities with competitions that acully function.

I'll like to bring this back. I've always wanted to. I'll make RCT2 parks anytime!

coasetrphil
08-03-2004, 10:00 AM
Some of the staff are working on a way to get TNPP up and running once again, so you might want to look out for it in the future.
