Thank you for all being our beta testers and from your feedback has helped us create a better and much more stable simulation. Your feedback makes and shapes the simulations to perform the very best as it is intended to be.
We appreicate it greatly and looking forward to release the simulation. Again, please bare with us if the release of the simulation doesn't come out in time. We are still making fine tuning and adding some tweaking to the coding to make sure the simulation is ready for the public use.
Hopefully our release goal for this month expedition everest simulation will be ready as planned. We'll keep you updated if there's a delay in the developement release of the simulation. ;)
Thanks again and we hope you are excited as we are to announce the 6th addition to the simulation family.
Happy Holiday's and Merry Christmas!

Make sure you add this to your favorites: http://www.randydorney.blogspot.com/
We hope you are enjoying what you are reading and thank you for beta testing for us as well.
*FOR BETA TESTING REQUESTS...Email me at: email@example.com
(* Will not respond to comments to blog for requests to beta testing. Email me ;) Thanks! )
We have only 2 more beta testing spots open!! So hurry and email me today to get into the door for your beta copy!
Thank you for reading today!
From shock and interested by the results, here they are:
And the winner is...
-Tower Of Terror: 47.4% (Winner!! 1st!)
-Big Thunder Mountain: 18.8% (2nd)
-Phantom Manor: 16.2% (3rd)
-Millionaire Play It!: 13.6% (4th)
-Space Mountain: 3.9% (5th)
Quote from the Webmaster/Simulation Creator: "The Tower of Terror simulation got the major amount of votes from the visitors, about 47%!The second place has been taken by the Big Thunder Mountain simulation, runner up is the Phantom Manor simulation.Millionaire Play it! took the fourth place.
I was just wondering why the list ended this way. My personal favorite is the Tower of Terror sim, but I also like the MPi sim. Personally the second place suprises me; the Big Thunder Mountain sim has got a refurbishment in 2007, and it worked out well I see. The simulation has been improved and I added some new effects."
We are happy that you loved TOT as much as we do. I'm looking forward for new future simulations to produce as well can't wait for Expedition Everest simulation to come out real soon!!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday's!

I know we are so close to be almost done with Expedition Everest Simulation. We are excited and can't wait to release it!
We have 4 open spots available for beta testing "Expedition Everest" simulation.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and a message saying about you wanting to be our beta tester.
Hurry up!! We want to know your feedback on the simulation as part of the REQUIREMENT to test our simulation.

Below you'll see the latest simulation development update for: December 3, 2008
(Click on the picture to see it upclose.)
The noticeable features has been added:
-See through mountain: part is where you'll see the video image of the yeti tearing apart the tracks. (If you don't know what I mean, google it and you'll see what I mean. ;) )
-Thunderstorm Warning: The weather system feature has been added but not sure it will be ready for the release. We do know its implanted into the game already. We'll let you know when that feature will be added. If not at the release, it will then be an update. A version 2 update along with any bugs that may appear at the official release.
-Mountain Lighting Effects: The blue, green and purple lighting is the real special effect that you would see at the real attraction at Walt Disney World, Florida. It's another added feature that makes the mountain more magical and mysterious. Just that and making the day to night has the coolest effect ever. But that's what I think. ;)
-Failure System: We have programmed and added so many problems that can happen during a real life situation on Expedition Everest ride. It's way more problems with PH and TOT combined. Right now, it's the most programmed failures into this simulation so far!
The webmaster quote on the newest simulation: "Expedition Everest will be our newest simulation, which will be released around x-mas this year. After some months hard work we almost finished this sixth simulation. So again a rollercoaster sim, this one starts different from the previous ones. First you have to add the trains like with the real attraction before you can sen them to the mountain. There are 2 queues, the standby and fastpass queue. You can manage the amount of visitors who visit the attraction (Visitor Flow) by changing the time between the addition of a new visitor to the stage.
We added the failure system, known from TOT and PHM, and this one has more failures programmed this time."
We are getting closer as the month is closing in on us. There's still alot to do on our list before the major release. There's not that many bugs that our beta testers encountered. There is 4 open spots for you to beta test the newest simulation still! So hurry on up and test the newest and latest simulation build today!
Have a magical day!

As you see below, the november 11 screenshot is the latest update/development in the coming soon simulation by Christmas 2008.
(Click on Screenshot to see it upclose.) ;)
Webmaster/Simulation Developer: "I normally give almost every object a new place during the development, to find the ideal feel and look of the controls. I have removed the train status fields from the control panel, and created a separate module, which can be switched off and on.Also added a new control option, the "Visitor Flow" module. With this advanced option, you can control the flow of visitors. Beside that option, there is a choice to enable the Standby row and the Fastpass row."
We are excited on how close the simulation is ready to be play for the public. We have alot to do from this point and adding features and touches to make it ready for online by Christmas 2008.
**NOTE: Not one single person have emailed me from this blog site to be our beta tester. So you still have a chance to be our beta tester.
Until next time,

Hello fellow readers,
Saturday, November 1, 2008
This is the newest build to date October 30, 2008 that has now adding the people go through the queue for the first time now. :D
Below you'll see the latest pic of the queue line (Left: Stand by Right: Fast Pass) with the guests going through the line.
(Night Version of Current Build 30, 2008)
Looking forward to adding the other details to the queue lines, the yeti, etc...

Update: October 25, 2008 ~ This is the latest development of the current Expedition Everest Simulation.
Click on the picture to see it larger. Again, since its under development it may not reflect the final version of the simulation.
Be sure to keep an eye here and as well "Themagical.nl" site for the latest updates.
Christmas is coming up sooner than you think, we are excited to announce our successor after "Millionaire Play It" that "Expedition Everest" simulation is the next installment.
See you on the site!

As you already know that our next successor simulation after "Millionaire Play It" will be Expedition Everest!!
Production has been very smoothly and not that many bugs has encountered unlike MPI (Millionaire Play It). MPI was a huge simulation to do as well alot of functions had to be inplace in order to make the simulation run well like the real attraction at Disney's California Adventure as well Disney's Hollywood Studios (formerly known as Disney's MGM-Studios).
Since the databased crashed on October 8th, it was alot more work to be done to make the site back up and running again as it was before. So there was a slight delay on the progress EE sim (aka Expedition Everest Simulation) since the site had to be first made back online again.
But as of Oct. 21 we are back on schedule and found bugs. Which is good to find out since the bug in Adobe Flash not always catch it until you play with the swf file in test mode.
I'm please by how well its turning out to be and I know you guys and gals will enjoy the pleasure of playing another great attraction online as you relived the memories of being on EE or have the control of a major rollercoaster attraction from Disney's Animal Kingdom!
Screenshots of the current build of EE will not be displayed until permission from the webmaster of themagical.nl Tijn. But in due time, keep your eyes peeled for possible beta testing of EE since its part of the "Magical Wishes" promotion!
Until next time.

Looking forward to add new things and keep you updated.
Thanks for reading!
Have a magical day!
