    Im Starting My First Mini Park

    im putting my lava land park on hold for now. im really having trouble theming that whole park to one theme and that theme not being so big. so im starting a mini park. this park will be themed to medieval/castles theming. it will look a lot like the section in my park "land of the lost". its a 90x90 map size. i started the enterance but didnt get that far. here is a picture of the enterance.

    Well I'll be the first to say it looks good. I'll probably stop goofing and get back to working on Virginia Lake Park here real soon. It's kinda a mini park to sans how it's only on a 101X101 map size and doesn't take up the whole thing. Keep up the good work.

    yay, i got a reply. thanks ride6. i am going very fast with this park.(mainly because medieval is my favorite theming and im addicted to working on it) i now have dueling flyers built. they have very very good ratings. i tried something differant with these. normally when i build dueling coasters, i build them both at the same time so i can get good timing on parts. well these, i completely built one, and then i built the next one. without testing them first, i got both of them to have the exact same ride time, really wierd. well, here they are:

    Ok, here we go again. I tried to post a reply last night, but when I pressed "Submit Reply" and it took me to google...

    Anyway, this park is looking pretty nice. I really like medieval theming a lot. Infact I plan on making a Mountain/Castle/Forest minipark after I am finished with my part in the Site Wars park. One suggestion would be to add more detail, and shrubs and stuff to the big castles. That would make it look much better. But keep of the good work, and thanks for providing so many screens!

    Not a bad job with the Jaged Rocks, but you should make your river rides so that the tops of the troughs are lower than the ground... it looks alot better. And in places there's clumps of "Jagged things" facing the same direction. Jaged rocks theming requires them to be facing different directions and share no lines. Good examples avaliable at http://www.thrillnetwork.com/boards/...threadid=19816 (shamless plug)

    The jagged rocks look really nice in that last screen (I think they look fine in the other ones too), but that castle is a little repedative. Try taking out most of the orange tile roofs, and add another level, but just on part of it, so it ends up looking like this:

    Err... Kind of. IM me if you have any questions about what I mean. Basically, just change it up a little every here and there to make it more interesting.

    Not bad. The Jagged rocks look real good!

    I agree with Intamin101 on the Shoot the Chutes but otherwise great park!

    Looks very nice. I really don't have any problems with that, except if it were my park, I would make the handrails on the wooden coaster brown. But its your ride so do what you want. Looks really good though, but lets see some more theming!

    It looks real nice SFGadvKing, but one thing that I would like to see is an over all view...like zoom out and show us how it will all fit together...That will bring it into perspective for me. I think that I can help you more if I see a zoomed out pic.
