Hi! If you play the game Roller coaster tycoon 3 (RCT3) then this Instructable is definitely worth looking at. This is an Instructable to help you get started on making the parks of your dreams. These tips are good for beginners and pros. There are many ways to make better parks and rides. This is an Instructable to get you started. In this Instructable I will be focusing on making cool but at the same time realistic entrances and roller coasters. These are only some of the basics of what is possible in RCT3. I hope that after you see this Instructable you will be able to make better parks. One little thing I should mention is that this Instructable DOES NOT use custom scenery. It is all in-game scenery. Another thing is that I used scenery from the Soaked and Wild! expansion packs. If you can not find the scenery in your game it might be because you don't have the expansion packs. I'd highly suggest getting them because they further your possibilities.

Let's get started!

Step 1: Scenario Editor and terraforming

This step shows you some extras available in the scenario editor option under tools. It will also show you how to alternate the terrain without making it look like a bunch of pointy hills. This is more commonly known asterraforming.
<p>Hello,</p><p>I've seen NerdCubed videos on YouTube and his play through. I have a few questions ;) (also I know I'm so late but I've only just found this game and it looks cool!)</p><p>1) Which is better - career or scenario?</p><p>2) Will my Intel Core Acer 1.7GHz computer run it OK (NerdCubed seemed to have a really laggy and long start up for his map so I thought...)?</p><p>3) Does it glitch when you edit the terrain?</p><p>4) Generally, what rides do you think I should start the park with?</p><p>5) Finally, should I not use any themes at all, stick to one theme or use multiple themes? And if yes, which should I use?</p><p>Sorry for wasting your time!!!</p><p>Owen</p>

Cool! :-D But, how do you open a sandbox with the park you edited in the scenario editor? I thought you could only do that with custom scenario.
You could just save all the buildings and and coasters and copy them into a scenario editor? I'm not sure if there's a way to transfer it but you could use the other tips. Scenario editor is for people who want to change the entrance and change the sign and make objectives and all that. You could use the other steps for tips on Splash country.
I already knew all of this stuff, lol. But the part on changing the size of park land is useful, since I had some trouble finding a tutorial on the web when I first began.
YEAH! PArt two might deal with custom scenery.
And don't forget water and waterfalls.
Of course. That's weird. I can comment on my other computer.
You're my 3100<sup>th</sup> commenter!
YAY! 3000 and 3100. :-D
Add a picture to Step 5, steps without pictures drive me crazy. :-P
Sorry. I'll get a pic when I finish part of my current park.
You could just add a picture you already have in your library.
I think I'll wait. ;-)
Also, shouldn't this be in computer games instead of video games?
Computer GAMES! ;-)
Yeah, change the category to that. It's in video games right now.
I think it's fine in video games. Besides more people look in the video gamessection so more people would see this.
Even though it is a computer game. Also, the best tutorial you could make is how to create custom scenery. One reason I hate custom scenery is because some is cheap and unrealistic.
I don't know how to create custom scenery. UNREALISTIC?! The whole point of CS is that it makes it more realistic. You just have to find the right sets. I'll cover CS, CTR's and CFR's in the next part.
Most of the custom scenery people make is unrealistic.
Give me one example.
Go to the website place. I forgot where it was.
Which one! There are hundreds.
Vodhin's pages.
You mean the googie kit? That's a future set<br>
Huh?
What set are you talking about
I'm not talking about a specific set.
...
Just custom scenery in general.
The whole point of custom scenery is to make parks more realistic. A lot of sets mght be futuristic.
Futuristic should still be detailed.
You should see Weber's Sci-fi 3.
I'm too lazy to look for it. :-P
Because I'm nice... <a href="http://forums.atari.com/showthread.php?t=8395">Link</a><br> Look at some of the pics at the bottom of teh third page...<br>
Ha, thanks for the link. That's some good scenery.
Told you... :-) <br>Have you got any of Shy guys sets.
Yes, I have the planters and rocks. Also, you replied 5 minutes ago, so you must be online right now. Yay!
Unfortunately no. I wasn't on... That was right before the bell. :-( <br>I'd suggest getting his alpine, water world, catfish cove, circus centre and Main street if you want to. Gre at for buildings of every kind. Plus no object collision.
I'm fine with the custom scenery I have now. :-)
I probably have about 50 sets and a bunch of CTR's and CFR's
That's too much. :-P What is CTR and CFR? <br><br>Also, I'm going to be home from school for the rest of the week because I have para influenza. Wake up early and get on Skype!
CTR is Custom tracked rides. They are more realistic coaster cars. CFR's are Custom flat rides. rides like an intamin drop tower and any other type of flat ride that aren't on the game. <br> <br>WOOT I've heard of influenza but I haven't heard of para influenza. I was expecting you to go down with Shadowman39itis ;-) <br>I hope you get well. See ya tomorrow! :-D
Oh yeah, I've heard of those. I just forgot. Now I have to help my brother edit his roller coaster video.
OOH can't wait to see it!
It's all done. :-)
I saw it! Great coaster! Editing was good.
I edited it for him. But he filmed it.
