I am thrilled to announce that I have received express permission from Steve Franks to post his "Real World Track Packs".
Gamer Steve Franks has carefully and meticulously recreated many real world rides for Loopy Landscapes. Each of these "Real World Track Packs" represents hours of research for photographs & videos, checking specifications, thoughtful study, and then careful recreation with constant tweaking until each ride is as perfect as RCT will allow (please always read the Track Packs included documentation). For even greater realism, be sure to incorporate his specially designed service and station facilities when you place the ride (carefully examine his included preview images).
Please note that when RCT2 became available, Steve Franks updated many of his RCT1 Track Packs to include RCT2 equivalents of his RCT1 rides. Unfortunately, in doing so he also removed many of the image files that showed the design and placement of ride support structures (because at the time, dial-up Internet was still common, and it was considered good practice to keep downloadable files small). As you can not save Scenery with RCT1 tracks as you can with RCT2 tracks, the removal of these image files turned out to be a severe loss to Loopy Landscape players.
I have been allowed to rectify the problem, through customizing these Track Packs so that they again include the missing image files from older versions of Steve's Track Packs (look for a folder called "Old"). Please note that since the focus here is on Loopy Landscapes, these customized Track Packs do not include any RCT2 Track or WorkBench files (although I have kept all the photos of the RCT2 tracks, as they provide inspiration for super-detailing your support structures). If you desire the newest Track Packs which contain all the RCT2 files, they can be downloaded from the RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 add-ons webpage.

A replacement for the "Crazy Volle" that comes with the game (plus nine additional imaginary tracks)
A Station Flyer Tribute Coaster (originally designed for the "Station Park" fan-website fantasy park)
The RCT game designers once offered bonus tracks on their personal websites.
Beastly Collection = Bumble Bee, Ferret, Glow-Worm, Hedgehog, Jellyfish, Panther, Polar Bear, Rat Race, Rattlesnake, Stingray.
Cat Collection = Cataclysm, Catacomb, Cataplexy, Catastrophe, Catatonia, Caterpillar.
Gem Collection = amber, amethyst, diamond, emerald, jasper, melanite, ruby, sapphire.
Original Collection = Brooke, Ingrid, Karen, Kathryn, Katie, Kellie, Liz, Louise, Margaret, Melanie, Sarah, Shona, Tamsen, Victoria.
Phobias Collection = Clithrophobia, Kenophobia, Maniaphobia, Nyctophobia, Pathophobia, Pterophobia, Tacophobia.
Woodies Collection = ash, driftwood, embers, matchstick, sawdust, splinter, tinder, touchwood, woodwind, woodworm.
- - - - - - - - - -
Wardley Collection = alton beast woodie, alton ugland woodie, chessington racer, thorpe launcher, thorpe multi-looper, thorpe woodie.
The Alton Beast Woodie was designed to fit on the site of the old Beast ride next to Nemesis and the Ripsaw, at Alton Towers, UK.
The Alton Ugland Woodie was designed to fit in the wooded quarry area at the back of "Ugland", behind the Corkscrew at Alton Towers, UK.
The Chessington Racer was a twin-track small family steel racing coaster located on the site which was originally "Circus World" (now "Beanoland"), at Chessington World of Adventures, UK.
The Thorpe Launcher was a large steel LIM-launched coaster, desgined for the site between X-No Way Out and the lake, at Thorpe Park, UK.
The Thorpe Multi-looper was a gravity ride, desgined for the site between X-No Way Out and the lake, at Thorpe Park, UK.
The Thorpe Woodie was designed to circumnavigate the Loggers' Leap logflume ride in "Canada Creek", at Thorpe Park, UK.
Many of the tracks Chris Sawyer created for the games scenarios can be built on flat ground. I have extracted all these tracks from the games scenarios. Note that I had to truncate some of the names so they would fit in the alloted space in the rides pick list, so refer to the actual scenario for the full name. As I have not included picture files, again please refer to the actual scenario for track plan overview and entrance/exit placement.
From the Original scenarios. Note that for Agoraphobia to properly line up with its companion, you must first raise at least one square of station track land by a height of 7 before placing the ride.
From the Corkscrew Follies scenarios. Note that for Hear No Evil and See No Evil to properly line up with their companion, you must first raise at least one square of station track land under each by a height of 5 before placing the rides.
From the Loopy Landscapes scenarios.
From the "Real" Parks scenarios.
From the Extra scenarios.
Just for fun I tried to create the absolute smallest functional tracks possible. Because of their very low cost and extremely tiny footprint, they can be useful in your scenarios (although I would suggest that they be expanded once placed). Since I also strove to maximize Excitement, the rides in these track packs give a good reference for the bottom limit of each ride types E-I-N specifications.
Micro Transport Rides - [Chairlift, Miniature Railroad, Monorail, Suspended Monorail]
Micro Gentle Rides - [Car Ride, Cycle Monorail, Cycle Railway, Ghost Train, Hedge Maze, Miniature Golf, Observation Tower]
Micro Thrill Rides - [Go Karts, Roto-Drop, Whoa Belly]
Normaly I frown upon "hacks". However there are certain legitimate uses, such as when attempting to create reproductions of Real Rides when there is a lack of appropriate game settings. This [NOT TESTED] TD4 Changer utility will swap vehicle type on any ride (*.td4 file). The ride type can also be changed, depending on the track elements. Please use this utility only if absolutely necessary!
