  1.  
    Contest - to make a new flagship coaster for adventure island at southend. the coaster needs to be a max height of 32m (106ft). this is marked by the height of the main blue outline. the park has also gotten permission to build over the pier or the RNLI station but support structures must not touch it. all coaster styles are avaliable, so you could basically try making an rmc in this template if you wanted

    RULES -

    1. Keep the coaster TRACK within the blue outline (SUPPORTS can leave the outline)
    2. Keep the station in the marked area (including the building. CUSTOM BUILDINGS ARE ACCEPTED)
    3. Do not build above the main template outline height
    4. Do not place supports on the pier structure
    5. Keep the track aboved the marked areas
    6. dont use the tunnel under the pier

    Deadline will be the 10th of January

    Legend -
    Blue = Template Outline
    Green = Minimum Track Height
    Red = No Support Zones
    Light Blue - Station Area

    Reccomended Coaster Types -

    Eurofigher
    Infinity
    Bobsled
    X Car
    Intamin Vert Lift
    Premier Launch
    Vekoma Motorbike
    Gravity Group
    GCI

    I'll try to take part but roundup 100 will take priority as I have more faith in it being any good.
  2.

    Why is a eurofighter one of the recomended tracks when they already have one?
    •  
      CommentAuthoriSatnav
    • CommentTimeDec 12th 2015
     
    ^I'd guess it is that the eurofighter they have already is underwhelming and a clone, so if a better eurofighter can be made, it would be considered.

    Do we have to watch out for the other rides inside the template, or is this template assuming all the rides inside it are going to be removed? SInce there's that flat on the left side of the pier that takes up most of that bit of the template.

    Also, what about wooden coaster supports. There's a minimum height requirement on the left, but with a wooden coaster, that wouldn't matter since the supports would cover all over the ground
  9.  
    the rides within the marked area would be either relocated or removed for the new coaster

    Being realistic, should I stick to cheaper coasters because it's a small park, or can I build a bigger coaster?
  10.  
    you can ideally do whatever you want, its just a contest for fun and not like coaster x or anything

    For the red section, could you have supports that go over but don't have footers? Or are there no supports at all over the red?
  11.  
    you can have supports go over it yes. just no footers
  12.  
    ill try my hand at this

    I've already begun mine as my Roundup 100 stuff is mostly done. The park was missing a launch coaster, so I'm filling that gap :P

    EDT: does the design need transfer tracks, storage, etc.?
  13.  
    yes

    Mine isn't as big as that :P It's only single launch and I've tried to make it not too long as the park not much money, but it's a fantasy competition, I guess.

    Mine is a Gerst Infinty though, so it's different :P

    I'll definitely try my hand at it.

    Now I know this is just a template picture of this small England park with rage, but what are you thoughts about not building over existing rides ie: like rage or the troika? I know you mentioned they'd be relocated or removed, but if we were to build around them would be interesting. it would certainly post more of a challenge for someone to attempt this. Would this be something where bonus points could be awarded or no. I have an interesting idea for this and would interested in making a coaster like the new mexico rattler.

    Also is the name for this to be "Southend Screamer"? What would be the theme for that?
  14.  
    1. i dont really want to do the "build around rides" thing, mainly because i am happy with the template as is. no bonus points would be added if you build around the rides

    2. southend screamer is the contest name, you can name the ride whatever you like and theme it how you want it

    Ok I might still try though. could make for an interesting coaster
  15.  
    Looking at other coasters, I'm screwed!
    • CommentAuthorcaptfido87
    • CommentTimeDec 13th 2015 edited
     
    ^not necessarily. Sometimes you can make something better and win. The point of these challenges are to 1. make you a better ride maker in the sim and 2. give you a tight time frame to try and win the glory. It's meant to be more fun in the long run.

    edit: I can see why the template is just a guide. the building and the boardwalk are gigantic compared to the ground level. Well that changes everything
  16.  
    What do we do about the supports? As the footers are normal placed under the template scene object.
  17.  
    for supports that go on buildings try doing something like this rather than using footers

    What do you take me for! some kind of turkey! I'll show you some supports!






    just kidding, great idea
  18.  
    Just to clarify, would this be the equivalent of a purism contest? A.k.a- No in-game scenery, no custom car textures, no scripts, etc.
  19.  
    you can do cartextures and scenery if you want, but it wont make a huge impact when judged
  20.  
    I might do a custom car texture, but I suck at making 3Ds! :P Again though, if they did get a new coaster it probably wouldn't have much theming outside of car design and signage.

    For the maximum height, does only the track have to be under the template, or does the train have to as well? I'm assuming the first, but I may be wrong.

    ^It's only the track, the train and catwalks can go out.
  21.  

    Here's some of my design. I'm thinking of calling it "The Southend Shark", even though Southend doesn't really have sharks...
  22.  
    There aren't really Iron Rattlers either.
