The landscape that could soon host your ride

I was going to be the European host and judge for MarchingEagles 1 Day Challenge.

When MarchingEagle sent me the park he had made for it, I fell in love with it.

What I enjoyed most from it, was not the amazing terrain painting, it was not the brilliant terraforming but it was the scale.

When I create mountains, they’re big, trying to give the dominating feeling as if you are in a real life mountain range. When I create waterfalls, they’re pouring from great heights – but in MarchingEagles park … he had done the opposite.

That was what was so good.

Small mountains, small waterfalls will make your coaster look taller.

His mountains don’t have their peaks in the clouds nor does the waterfall pour from the heavens. He’s created a realistic mountain range and waterfall without the height.

Compared to building on a typical landscape, on this park, rides will stretch far above the mountains making coasters look bigger. With coasters, what? two or three times bigger than the mountains that surround them, that’s going to create an impressive looking ride!

It’s a small park with mountains, river and a waterfall if you want to search for it – or look it up via the author name, MarchingEagle1028.

Park Of The Week:- Insect World by FrontierDevelopments

Insect World by FrontierDevelopments

Despite completing RollerCoasterTyccons scenarios again and again – I was pleasantly surprised every time I opened one up to modify to upload to the manager. Some I remember many I didn’t.

Insect World … I didn’t.

In fact, I was pretty amazed when I opened up the park. The giant spider terraformed over the mountain side with its army of mini spiders.

In my opinion it shows first hand the effectiveness and power that terraforming has on parks and I’m hoping it will be an inspiration to all about terraforming (of course not saying we all have to build creepy crawlies!)

It’s found under ‘Large’ and ‘Spooky’ if you want to find it. I can’t imagine what parks or rides will grow around this monster!!!
