    this work is probably the best quality and best-themed of all your stuff, so good work on that. the layouts and stadiums were (as always) the best features of this park, that pirate one is awesome especially. Orca and the woodie have amazing layouts, and I love how the impulse goes under the ground like that.

    Still, I have trouble liking those large, themeless structures that seem to dominate your park as buildings. Maybe if they were built to resemble actual buildings and have individual purposes you could improve this. Especially annoying was the huge one with the tan roof that the water coaster went through. Also, the pirate area was completely barren and ugly. The rocks helped a little but they were sort of blocky and the lack of really much theming killed it for me. Another problem is that they are obviously meant to be realistic (right?), but there is no way I could see those buildings or areas in real life.

    So yah, good work, but I agree that it was just a gold.

    This was nothing short of fantastic. Very nice work!

    ... Another problem is that they are obviously meant to be realistic (right?), but there is no way I could see those buildings or areas in real life.


    I guess this depends on the type of buildings you're used to. I find his buildings to be more realistic by being plain looking blocks as most buildings are very plain looking. Even the ones in major amusement parks are usually just boring boxes with fancy facades.

    This was my biggest problem with the park, too. These huge structures are just too big for a theme park imo. Moreover these structures have too little details.

    The layouts and supports were awesome, good job on that CP6/RCTNW.

    Congrats on the gold, looking forward to your next project. :)

    Why is there a panelist vote that has this in the spotlight category, and then a separate vote that ranks this as a gold?

    To me:

    Gold = great park, but not groundbreaking
    Spotlight great park, exceptionally memorable

    In theory, if a park makes me think "this is perfection but I've seen it all before" I can vote 100%+no. Spotlight is for pioneering.

    I loved the park and the coaster layouts were pretty solid. The only think i didnt like was the amount of shows placed in the park. I think if they were a bit smaller then maybe have 5 shows is okay, but i felt (scale wise) they dominated you park.

    Over all, vintage rctnw and theres nothing wrong with that. great job completing it.

    You see at the bottom of the panelist vote that turned out to be 81% it says "Spotlight Contender". This then triggers the spotlight vote to see if the park is worth a spotlight or not. It's our policy on determining spotlights. It was announced here.

    RCTNW, I thought the park was impressive, as always, ... and sterile, as always. I couldn't be more happy about how obvious it is that you're enjoying making these parks, but to be perfectly frank, they start to bore me. I know this statement is a bit ludicrous considering the quality of a park we're talking of, but you've spoiled us with these high calibre creations for too many years now, I'm afraid. I wish you would try to stray away from the purely technical aspect of accurately created structures of stadiums, and turn towards the more artistic appeal the game offers.

    IMO, this deserved spot. MMW got spot, and this was that, but refined and more pleasing. It could be that I saw this park in progress and was more familiar with it, but to me, only the general concept is "same-old, same-old." Brian did an excellent job on the layouts, and your archy has gotten better, though it was great before. I can't wait to see NWA take spot in a few months' time!

    Orca - best steel coaster of the year

    I'll post a better comment later, but the coaster was simply stunning...
  • djbrcace1234%s's Photo
    To put it simply, I loved this. Very well done, and great layouts. Too bad this didn't get spotlight, though.

    Pirates cove was very well done, and that was my faviorte area in the park. Congrats though!

    I thought the park was great and I'm sorry to see you got gold as you certainly deserve spotlight. I can see where the no's came from as I was looking for more detail in places with a few more smaller touches. I loved all of the coasters and Orca was exceptional. It was a great park and I think this is the result you need to progress such an individual style, and get even better than you already are.

    I would absolutely love to visit this place in real life
    The coaster, ride(maybe too many free fall rides though), and show lineups are awesome

    I always look at your parks differently than the rest here, almost as concept art for something to be built in real life. I like how you put enough detail in to make it obvious what it would look like if it was rebuilt in the real world but not too much as to make it impossible for you to finish your 20 or however many map project

    Sorry if you already said but are you planning on doing a full scale overview when they're all done, I think that'd be a sight to see

    I'm really glad I was able to help out a bit, even if it didn't make it into the final cut. I have to admit that I enjoyed Marriott more, but that doesn't mean this wasn't as spectacular.

    I think this is being robbed of being a spotlight tbh, I thought this was spectacular...
