    Project Oakvale /// Update 02 /// Unusual Attraction

    Time for another fairly small update.

    https://gyazo.com/023d46e4e09c24dba3bfb02985119347

    The Sky wheel is a very unique take on a Ferris wheel. Its hub-less design is due to Oakvales old ride, a Larson loop called Fireball. When the ride closed a few years back, the park decided to perform some unusual reconstructive surgery, they removed the train, and began retrofitting gondolas around each side of the loop. these gondolas were mounted to the moving track system resulting in a bizarre, double capacity, dual loading Frankenstein's monster of a wheel, allowing for some nice views of the parks skyline and a truly one of a kind ride.(apart from anyone else that has put this thing in their nl2 park...)

    Overview of the area outside the ride, Sky Wheel is the closest attraction to the park entrance.

    Queue line, eventually splits in two for loading of each side separately.

    https://gyazo.com/e5902d7c56d1c6f886ea1c0cad2d0d88

    The two corkscrews stand over the queue shelter to provide some interesting sights while queuing. (yeah right, like people will actually bother riding this thing when its released)

    That concludes this short park update, hoping to have Vortex fully finished with station and queues by next week.

    P.S I don't actually have a pet sheep in my house...

    I can lost my mind over a well done queue line and I think I just did! Sometimes the most basic things are the best.

    I've told you about 100x in skype but I can't fathom not saying it here, IT LOOKS SO FREAKIN GOOD. Knowing the majority of this is support-based just adds more to the wow factor.

    Just looking at the buses in the first update, the doors look like they'd leave people in the middle of the road to get flattened by a stampede of sheep. Care to fix this?

    ^^ Those are Optare Tempo (?) buses, found operating all across the UK. That double-door layout is perfectly normal and well-used, especially in larger towns and cities.

    ^ that's not the issue, they are on the wrong side...

    Project Oakvale /// Update 03 /// The devils in the details /// PICTURE HEAVY.


    https://gyazo.com/cd4f47a47f462d151bd2d244f39847c9

    Back when this was just going to be a standalone coaster, i made the terrible mistake of posting it in a skype chat.

    In said chat resided a person by the name of "Coasterguy 246".

    The resulting barrage of nitpicking that ensued nearly wiped the project off this planet.

    However after a concerning amount of hours, enough support nodes to paint the Mona Lisa in 4k, and an enormous supply of Rage reference pictures, the majority of the track details and systems, ranging from track sensors to hydraulic rams, are nearing completion.

    Coming up is a gallery of the lift hill, MCBR and brake run. Gerstlauer nerds... i salute you.

    https://gyazo.com/fe76d03ba36900ec4fadeb093de60c0a

    Starting with the pre lift segment...

    https://gyazo.com/8e311da97319a65e0741089cfa7e25f6

    Transfer turntable.

    https://gyazo.com/df7bd451420bd8c151fb7521ad161b00

    Chain start point.

    https://gyazo.com/338a5545d4f0b94b20d297689a48c2e2

    Chain sprocket holding frame, hydraulic piston to absorb the movement of the assembly as the train is pulled up the lift. (Note the lowering of the chain to the right to prevent collision with the train on the tight radius.)

    https://gyazo.com/6ac4f5a8c34046d86154af247f227c3b

    Lift pullup, showing the lift motor and evacuation lift.

    Shot of the whole tower structure and another angle of the evac lift.

    Maintenance ladder up the inside of the tower.

    Going up...

    https://gyazo.com/7702e6c6d73c6608d5a7eeb7d7214c87

    High point of the coaster, 115 feet in the air.

    https://gyazo.com/be585de6db9ec401208fcc890f1a3352

    Sensors and brake fins on the MCBR.

    https://gyazo.com/77275a5e36cbfc3f5e91805bf6712f73

    Underside of the final brake run's movable magnetic fins and clamp brakes.

    https://gyazo.com/746dcbd4175108b009b824de203d79d1

    And finally, the transport section leading up to the holding block and station, more on that in the next update! (no sheep were harmed in the making of this update, only my sanity)...

    you literally could have modeled all of this, why did you waste your time xD it gets to a point where supports are too much work to figure out...
  5.  
    Trust me, it would have been more difficult to model this stuff to the accuracy that this is at unless you actually work at gerstlauer

    ^^ Another plus side to modeling these pieces is re usability. You really would only have to model them once, but could use them for many projects.

    ^ I would also have to contest this. Most modeling programs worth a damn (not Sketchup) allow you to specify dimensions in order to produce a precise model.

    I can always copy all the supports over if i ever make another euro fighter.

    Unreal work E115, I'm SUUPER excited to see this park in a finished state, so far it looks like it's almost getting there.

    Only paths, queue, station, photo shop, on ride camera, additional flat rides, all the queues for those, 3 other major coasters to the same detail level as the eurofighter, the stations and queues for each one, lights, bins, fences, maintenance area, service roads, all the direction signs, surrounding hillsides and a large amount of Easter eggs to go!

    i wish someone could make a working evac lift for NL2 Eurofighter vertical lift hills!

    Project Oakvale /// Update 04 /// After Dark ///

    https://gyazo.com/fac07ef3cf045bf55b2afebddafd2ee0

    I have recently overhauled the lights around the park to be more realistic, before they were just sort of placed around in random spots. I have made sure every walk-able area is fully lit up, as well as added some fancy lighting to the completed flatrides.
    I have switched over to the nl2 default env for the purpose of having a day night cylcle and dynamic weather. Performance will obviously suffer when running at night, although the impact is not quite as severe as one might think.

    https://gyazo.com/be968c890ae1223d7d12e3f4df62f39a

    Main Entrance

    https://gyazo.com/b1ed5950e04276bc0ec1a40d1faa6a15

    "Gravity Garden" a relaxing forested area, really comes alive after the sun has fallen.

    https://gyazo.com/26c9d0082c9bb87b1eba3b3f07ccfc5b

    The parks most intense ride experience is located in this area.

    https://gyazo.com/af5d6f9946b05741b84c082b831cef9e

    Skywheel at night, blue spotlights shine up from below.

    https://gyazo.com/c60b7c5648132450225f2f9fef1e8d9a

    Enterprise has a similar feature, the many gondolas rotating through the floodlighting creates quite a show.

    https://gyazo.com/cabaae1acdbd3df9185b051b0eaff33f

    Nothing to see here, move along....

    https://gyazo.com/849a390be7c0c9fb5da2576f224d9363

    Vortex's loop really stands out and is visible from almost everywhere.

    https://gyazo.com/58aad8fe068f6a84a515a8783a4a1ac8

    And a final shot from the peak of the lift hill looking towards the entrance.

    I think i better start building a bunker, because when this park is released computers all over the world will turn into large fusion bombs whenever the sun sets...

    As much as I love the many heavily themed projects flying around here, it's so refreshing to see a nice, middle-America style amusement park. It feels like one of those parks that's only accessible by back roads. Nothin' to see here, folks!

    Gotta say that I love this style of Eurofighter. I think it works so well in this park's atmosphere. Needs a woodie though. :D
