    Voted 85%, yes on Spotlight. Here's why.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this park. I'm no Ll expert, but I couldn't fathom how much i was rapt into each theme. My favorites for sure are New Eden and King Autumn's Court. So much color and life. Loved the station for the invert, and Gaia's Garden was good fun to watch. Loved the small details like Crusoe's Cooking Corner and all of the trackitecture awnings over benches, etc. The game stall were fun to see as well.

    The coaster design was less than perfect, to say the least. I did find Nomad and Autumnal Breeze pretty, though. I loved the first drop/final brakes on the invert. Really well done area. Really wasn't a fan of Ibiza's coaster, especially toward the end.

    I just really enjoyed escaping. And that is exactly what the park was intended for correct? Well done, Liampie.

    The best fullscale park I've seen since March/April of 2011. Beautifully themed and planned. I'm torn that this gets such a low score when so many sterile parks get better ratings :/

    Grats Liam. You deserved more here.

    The jungle area and the Aztec area hugely let this park down. The jungle area had good architecture but for the most park just seemed like filler, and the coaster layout was really not great, especially compared to the other coasters in the park. The Aztec area was just really not good at all. We did record an accolade review where we give our opinions but the video it's self didn't work but hopefully we might find a way around it and then you'll have a more full comment from me. If we can't get it to work then I'll just post a more in depth comment.

    But to summarise it all up, my opinions were:

    Ibiza - Gold material (75%)
    Sana'a - Spotlight material (85%)
    King Autumn's Court - Spotlight Material (80%)
    New Eden - Gold material (70%)
    Techniclitoclan (Idk lol) - Silver material (60%)


    Averages out around 75% so that would have been my vote and no to Spotlight.

    Massive props to full size. I presume full sized LL will be rarely seen as time goes by..you really did a great job liam, should be proud of yourself.

    I'll give a detailed review in a few days.

    I can't see this in game, but from the overview, that section with the wooden coaster looks like the biggest breath of fresh air this site has seen in I don't even know how long. Unreal. The first time I've actually thought, "this park has seasons." Fantastic work, Liam. The rest of the park looks great, too. I like how it seems you took relatively generic themes and made them your own!

    I still can't believe kumba is a journalist with all his spelling errors :p
    Anyway, great work Liam, nice throwback to the old days kinda.. Love the atmosphere you managed to achieve :)

    Though I don't have LL, this looks incredible from the overview and screens. One of the best LL parks I have seen lately. Classy logo.

    smart move including rmm, no ridiculous low vote, just kidding :D
  • RCTER2%s's Photo
    Wow this is one of the best LL park I have ever seen.

    Where?

    Really a great park Liam. Should have got spotlight imo. I loved the way you used the tops of shops for games and things.

    I cant watch it ingame but I just wanna tell you thank you!
    From the overview alone this is beautiful and exactly the style of park that I think the site needs in order to get a breath of fresh air. I hate how so many of the parks these days are rather "simulation" parks than own creations...what I want to see is not how people recreate a Six Flags in this game but how they put their own creativity into rct and use the games' tools as their palette for their very own piece of art instead of a park that copies its real life counterpart. That might have sounded overly romantic but I have really been missing this type of parkmaking involving creativity, thought and good planning, and the actual ability to let peeps, scenery, and rides interact.


    Good job and congrats!

    King Autumn's Courtyard is just-


    wow.

    You'd have spotlight in the bag in my opinion if you would have changed a bit of colors around in that jungle area.

    well, for one, you so badly thought it should be a spotlight park you called it a spotlight park

    Thanks for the comments guys! I'm positively surprised that a LL park not so heavy on codex can still get a high score, and I didn't expect to get so much spotlight support for this park in particular - gold seems perfect to me. I'm very motivated to release more LL parks now. I think a spotlight is possible.

    We did record an accolade review where we give our opinions but the video it's self didn't work but hopefully we might find a way around it and then you'll have a more full comment from me.

    Really? That's great. I'd love to see it.

    I agree! Lots of parks nowadays, however accurate or detailed, have become boring... I hope I can inspire other players to dive into atmospheric parkmaking.

    Yeah, if we can't get the actual video to work, the audio is perfectly fine so I can just send you the audio and you can try follow it round yourself.

    I'm patient.

    well, for one, you so badly thought it should be a spotlight park you called it a spotlight park

    Where? Fucking quote me on my mistakes if your going to try and point them out.

    I really wish I had LL to view this but from the overview it looks absolutely fantastic! I love the Nomad's station especially... you really pulled off that tent-like aesthetic very well. Beautiful atmosphere and unique themes here really make this stand out. I hope to see more parks like this on the front page!






    Where?


    I only spotted two errors.

    "The main ride is a Discovery of Tenochtitlan, an interactive river ride."

    "a" should be capitalized if it's part of the ride name or taken out if it isn't.

    "It's not unlikely that Liam will receive quite a few votes for top duel player now. "

    Dual.

    and this is was just confusing:
    "Boy nearly messed around and won an NE Spotlight with his fantastic LL solo, "The Escapist Experience.""

    It would be better phrased "Boy messed around and nearly won an NE Spotlight..."

    Truthfully I give absolutely zero damns if Darren made a few typos-
