Yes children, for those of you who remember the topic that long ago was closed on these very forums, my re-creation of GADV in RCT2 form has been raised from the dead (and it's all thanks to The Ghoulmaster...haha), with serious progress taking place thanks to GAH's amazing spotlights and FlyinPhil's excellent aerial photo's on his site. However before I begin posting updated screens I have a few rules that I would like to be followed so that this topic doesn't end up like the last one:

1. Please for the love of anything that's sane, do not ask when it will be done. I do not know, it may never get done. This was originally started 5 years ago in April 2004, so while I could guess I honestly would be wrong just like I was all those time before when I thought I could have it finished by a certain date.

2. I do not know how frequently I'll be able to update, so please do not ask if it's dead or beg for updates. I will come in and tell you guys if I have officially dropped the project, until then please just accept that I have other things to do other than play RCT2 and be patient. This was the main reason that the other topic was closed, and if it starts up again I will ask a mod to lock it and I will go back to working on it in silence.

With that out of the way, I'd like to present you with some new and some older screenshots of my recent and not so recent progress. Keep in mind that this is a 2006 "45th Anniversary" re-creation so certain things that are in the park today may not be there purposefully and that all of these images are "Works-In-Progress".

El Toro Entrance
Posted Image
Fun Fact: Toro is currently the most intense ride in the park with a rating of 9.78 - how's *that* for accuracy?

Scream Machine Station
Posted Image

Superman: Ultimate Flight & Outer Mall (FYI: the flowers on the cake were removed because they kept dying, they will be added back later)
Posted Image

NITRO Station and Transfer (workbench screen, not placed in park yet)
Posted Image

And last but not least, a Kingda Ka teaser (this will most likely be the only look you guys get of Ka and GK, so savor it!)
Posted Image

That's all for now, still working as I post this on Great American Road Race and the Hanger, will try to post an update once I semi-finalize their placement and positioning.

Haha, yes Dainan it does! Anyway it's seems I've hit a very minor snag guys. I am not happy at ALL with the area around Road Race and don't know what it is. Maybe because I had to squeeze things together in order for me to have enough room on the east, I don't know but it just doesn't feel right like the other areas of the rec. I'll keep messing with it and if I still can't get it to my liking I'll post a screen for you guys' to chime in on it.

In the mean time, I've started the very annoying task of moving Medusa, Mine Train, NSA and Saw Mill down because the spacing from El Toro was too far away which made the little river / lake bigger than it should be and threw GK Papa Johns positioning and such all out of whack.

Bah, enough of my blather, I present more random screens!

Medusa Cobra Roll (older screen, different angle...haha)

Northern Star Arena (will be edited after move to reflect the real thing more accurately with that lighting room or whatever in the middle of the stands and the other entrance)

Finally got the Hanger and Road Race area to where I find it accurate enough. It's weird, because what tied everything together and made me believe it was fine was adding erUPtion...

So in my never ending obsession to get this rec as accurate as RCT2 will allow, I attempted to add that ugly blue paving to the Boardwalk. Needless to say, while it may be more accurate in the cosmetic stance, I feel like its so ugly that it detracts from the the area and makes it feel inaccurate (which is my whole goal, for this rec to feel like the real park). In essence, it draws too much attention to itself, unlike the real thing which, when the dirt finally set in, was barely noticeable. I'll let you guys chime in on it, because to me its fairly obvious which one to go with, inaccurate or not:

I think it should stay as gray. Everything looks great but the Superman logo on the floor is bothering me, but I guess it'll have to do. Great job.
