**Judges entries will not be accepted!

Hmmm...I guess I'll be a judge for best theming of a park. But I really don't think you'll need three judges for each category. Maybe 5 - 10 judges total and perhaps you could cut down on a few categories? There are an awful lot and some are not necessary.

08-27-2007, 09:03 PM
Sign me up for best woodie!!!!!!!

08-27-2007, 09:04 PM
^ As a judge?

Yeah, i agree, maybe just 8 judges total...

08-27-2007, 09:12 PM
^ No I want to be in the contest for best wood!

08-27-2007, 10:51 PM
Entry! Best storyline of a park, RCT3. I'll need some time though what with school and all.

If CS is allowed, I'm in. If not, then I'll gladly be a judge for any or all RCT3 parks in any or every category.

08-28-2007, 04:43 PM
Yes, thats another point i'd like to add. CS will be fine!

Some new categories someone asked me to add!

Best Water Park
Best Water Slide
Best Kiddie area
Best Coaster Recreation
Best Park Recreation

May I change my entry category? After looking through some partially sompleted projects, I think I'll go for the Most Complete Park.

08-28-2007, 04:53 PM
Enter in both if you'd like!

08-28-2007, 05:25 PM
Is there a deadline set?

08-28-2007, 09:15 PM
No, there is no set date as of right now! But if you'd like a ballpark figure, i'm looking some where around the end of sep. or the middle of oct. It mainly depends of how many entries i get

09-08-2007, 07:21 PM
So, is anyone going to enter or at least take some interest? I've seen some parks that look awesome on here (i.e. IOA Hollywood!)!

Still no set dead line! I still need some judges. I've changed it again to cut down on confusion. Anyone who is not entering can judge, you just can't enter and judge too... Sorry..

09-08-2007, 08:07 PM
If I do enter can i use an old park that was put up for download?
Japan Adventure Park...

09-08-2007, 08:29 PM
Does it matter to the judges if I have Wild!? I'm looking to get in on the best coaster categories, but I was just wanna make sure I can make it with the extended coaster that the regular and Soaked! don't have.

09-08-2007, 09:15 PM
How do I locate my screenshots on #2.

09-08-2007, 11:47 PM
Milkchan: As long as it's your park, feel free.

Fastdawg07: Whatever you got is great! All Expansion parks are acceptable!

Timbersman: What do you mean?

09-09-2007, 01:08 AM

Awesome. Can we expect any pictures?

09-09-2007, 01:28 AM
^Nevermind...I can't zip it, so I can't upload it. Its so late right now...I'm not gonna mess with the pictures either...GRRRRR!!

09-09-2007, 01:30 AM
lol, I understand, but there's a way that you can change the pictures, i just don't exactly know how...

09-09-2007, 08:43 AM
I took some screens shots but I dont know where their located so I cant upload them :(

09-09-2007, 10:00 AM
They should automatically save to a folder in your my pictures called RCT3

09-09-2007, 08:18 PM
Sorry guys, I'm gonna have to withdraw from the contest. My bad. I just don't feel like spending my college money on a ZIP download where it could be going somewhere else...like State basketball tickets. Anyway, again, I'm sorry.

09-09-2007, 08:40 PM
why do you need a zip download...?

09-09-2007, 08:54 PM
you can't upload w/o it being a zip file right??

09-09-2007, 08:57 PM
I have before.... I got someone else to do it for me, but i got them up. Email them to me or something. Or IM me on yahoo/MSN... And then i'll save them and post em...

09-09-2007, 09:51 PM
OH, no, I want to upload the coaster for the contest...are you going off pictures or the actual coaster for download in the game? I guess if all you want is the pictures, then fine.

09-09-2007, 09:59 PM
Just what ever you want to post. It can be screen shots, or you can even make a movie of it and post it up on youtube! I think i'm going to make a post on youtube myself about this contest!

09-09-2007, 10:11 PM
Alright, I emailed you the screenshots. I hope they're enough! my email is the same as my TN name so yeah.

09-09-2007, 10:14 PM
Do you have Yahoo Messenger? That'd be easier for me if you do... but what ever you got..

09-09-2007, 10:22 PM
Nope, sorry. Yeah, I got it to your hotmail. It should be there.

09-09-2007, 10:31 PM
Looks really great man! Do you think I could get some more. Maybe some of the station, a full over view of the ride, etc.

I'll get them up soon! It probably won't be tonight, it's late, 10:30 here.

What category did you want this in again?

09-10-2007, 03:45 PM
So here is the first entry!

This Coaster Is Called Conquest

09-10-2007, 04:00 PM
Yeah, I didn't make a station, I really didn't put a ton of time into the supports either. I mostly focused on the track so if you could just focus on that. I wanted it in the best unthemed steel coaster. And yeah, I'll get more screenshots soon.

09-11-2007, 08:18 AM
All Expansion Packs are ok...
Yeah, go ahead and use that park.
Your screen shots should be in a file in your my pictures called RCT3
